Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Kathy Ireland first gained recognition as a supermodel, but today she is respected for her design talents and business acumen as CEO and chief designer of Kathy Ireland Worldwide.

Ireland, independent and strong-minded, has an entrepreneurial drive coupled with the desire to break free of the skewed standards of the modeling business, that gave her the impetus she needed to start her own company. Her billion-dollar business began with a line of socks, then apparel, and today it extends into home furnishings, flooring, and accessories designed for women like herself--busy moms whose top priority is taking care of their families. She also dedicates her energy to a wide range of nonprofit organizations, many of them dedicated to improving the lives of women and children.

Powerful Inspirations reveals the sources of Kathy's strengths and enthusiasm, through insightful lessons that form a life-changing plan for her readers. In sharing her plan, Ireland also tells stories from her life, describing her close-knit family, the work ethic her parents taught her, and the sense of compassion they instilled in her.

She offers an intimate portrait of her inner life and her spiritual growth, writing movingly of the support and comfort she has found in the Bible and other Christian teachings. She writes movingly of her failures and the lessons she's learned while triumphing over them.

Kathy's account of her journey from the beaches of Santa Barbara to the boardroom, from supermodel to successful businesswoman provides readers the inspiration and encouragement to create a rich and rewarding life for themselves.

I have always known Kathy to be a wonderful role model in her work withchildren. Now, I see what a great teacher she is. In her book, she offers not only inspiration, but also insight and tips that will help anyone succeed in life.

SHAQUILLE O'NEAL

Kathy's beautiful faith and her new book are powerful inspirations for daily living.

The strength of her character and faith, from which she draws her inspiration, is beyond reproach. Her 'lessons for living' help all of us to envision the potential of extraordinary results in ordinary circumstances.

I'm so grateful to Kathy for sharing how she remains so grounded with all her success. I share her commitment to faith and family. Her book speaks from experience and you can't help but admire her inner strength. You too can learn and benefit from her lessons on life.
