The international supermodel shares personal stories and lessons learned from a life of “living dangerously–carefully.”
As the twenty- and thirtysomethings who follow her obsessively on social media know, Maye Musk is a fount of frank and practical advice on how the choices you make in every decade can pay off in surprising, exciting ways throughout your life. At seventy-one she is a fashionable Covergirl and jet-setting supermodel with a fascinating and tight-knit circle of famous family (including her entrepreneur son Elon Musk) and friends. But things were not always so easy or glamorous—she became a single mom at thirty-one years old, struggling through poverty to provide for her three children, all the while starting over in eight different cities across three countries and two continents. But she made her way through it all with an indomitable spirit and a no-nonsense attitude to become a global success at what she calls the “prime of her life.”
Maye shares experiences from her life conveying hard-earned wisdom on career (the harder you work, the luckier you get), family (let the people you love go their own way), health (there is no magic pill), and adventure (make room for discovery, but always be ready for anything). Her message: You can’t control all that happens in life, but you can have the life you want at any age. All you have to do is make a plan.
