THANK YOU for taking the time to BE HERE.
It’s our un-book club where we bring role models and mentors from around the world to life. Caroline’s award-winning case-study (see link below) will bring you up to speed before the call.
In what may be the highest value, shortest time ratio: You’ll learn from a real role model and mentor her experiences, amazing life story and be able to ask her questions.
Why do we do this? Because access to role models and mentors – even in case study form – are shown to increase self-efficacy.
What do I do?

About our featured Case Author and Speaker
Caroline Adams Miller, MAPP published her first book, “My Name is Caroline,” in 1988 (Doubleday), which was the first major autobiography by a survivor of bulimia.
It was an Alternate Selection for the Literary Guild, and won plaudits around the world for its raw, uncensored look at a disorder that few understood or knew how to treat when it was published. “Feeding the Soul” (Bantam 1992) and “Bright Lights for Dark Days” (Bantam 1994) followed, and all were translated into multiple languages.
In 2009, Caroline published a groundbreaking book in the field of Positive Psychology and goal setting, “Creating Your Best Life.” As the first evidence-based book that linked these two scientific theories, the book earned a red star in the Library Journal, and is used in educational settings around the world, along with being a mass market bestseller.
A Harvard graduate, Caroline worked at the Wall Street Journal, and went on to partner with Dr. Michael B. Frisch, a clinical psychiatrist, to write Creating Your Best Life: The Ultimate Life List Guide, a 2011 best seller which sold over “15,000” copies. Update: Caroline’s next book on GRIT is live on Amazon. See Carolines books here.
She recently did a TEDx talk called “The moments that make champions” that is gaining momentum online.
On Friday, February 13th at noon, we have the honor of Caroline’s return to do another talk, this time with our group.

Where to find Today’s Case
You can read Caroline’s case now, at HotMommasProject.org, or join the broadcast at noon sharp when we’ll be reading it together.
Here’s a brief quote from the Introduction:
It was the summer of 1990 and my life had now become fodder for a popular game show. In facing my darkest demons, and writing about my recovery from bulimia in the first major autobiography by a survivor, “My Name is Caroline” (Doubleday 1988), I had gone from nearly dying to becoming an international role model. I’d had to figure out who I was, and who I wanted to become – essentially a “real” version of myself to live – which made it especially ironic to be standing here playing this game with millions of television viewers.
