I created this program because I went through all of that. I had a great job -- traveling around the world, managing a staff, working with A-list celebrities, planning and attending VIP events, and meeting world leaders. I was working around the clock and scoring numerous wins. One day, I met with my boss and highlighted all the reasons I believed I had earned a promotion from director to vice president. In my mind, it was a no-brainer and I would soon be celebrating this milestone achievement. Unfortunately, fate had other plans. I remember the gut-wrenching pain and disappointment I felt when I was told there would be no celebration. My promotion had been denied. The news was devastating. I knew at that moment that I needed to develop a strategy - a STORYbook - to help propel me through a glass ceiling I had been unable to break.
