"It Takes Moxie: Off the Boat, or Out
of School, to Making it Your Way in America"
The American Dream --- we know it takes Moxie.
An intimate discussion with people who’ve achieved their American Dreams
and what they did to get there.
Co-President Maureen Francisco has written a book about finding that American
Dream, It Takes Moxie: Off the Boat, Or Out of School, to Making it
Your Way in America.
"I see that the economy in this country is declining, yet there are
certain people who are still achieving their American Dream: immigrants,
children of immigrants, or people who come from humble beginnings,"
says Maureen. "They all have something in common: positive attitude."
It Takes Moxie features the stories of Dr. Connie Mariano, the White
House doctor; Richard Cho, the first Asian- American GM of a major sports
franchise; Amy Chua, author of the New York Times Best Seller Battle Hymn
of the Tiger Mother; Teddy Zee, Executive Producer The Pursuit of Happyness
& Life or Something Like That and many more. They all have one
thing in common: a refusal to accept "no" for an answer. You'll
meet some of these people at the book launch party. This is an opportunity
to network with inspiring people. They are:
