A Woman Makes a Plan – in her compelling memoir Maye Musk shares hard-earned wisdom and frank, practical advice on career, health and more
More about the book!
A Woman Makes a Plan: Advice for a Lifetime of Adventure, Beauty, and Success by Maye Musk is out now from Jonathan Ball Publishers!
‘There’s an Afrikaans saying that I grew up with: ’n Boer maak ’n plan.’
When Maye Musk decided to make grey hair glamorous, she became an international supermodel and world-wide speaker in her sixties – a far cry from the young divorcée living in Durban trying to make ends meet to provide for her three children.
Things have not always been easy for the mother of South African-born entrepreneur Elon Musk. She struggled emotionally and financially as a single mother, battled weight issues and had to restart her life and her practice as a dietician in numerous cities over and again.
In her compelling memoir Musk shares hard-earned wisdom and frank, practical advice on career (the harder you work, the luckier you get), family (let those you love go their own way), health (there is no magic pill), adventure (make room for discovery, but always be ready for anything), and more.
With an indomitable spirit, Musk overcame her hardships with a no-nonsense attitude and the firm belief that while one cannot control everything, you can always make a plan.
