Introduction

An inspirational story of an extraordinary mother whose love for her children drove her to accomplish the seemingly impossible -- becoming a self-made millionaire despite her illiteracy and hardships. An incredible, true story of love, courage, and perseverance. After fleeing an abusive, arranged marriage, Moon married an American soldier and immigrated to the United States from Korea in the 1950s. Her secure happy life ended abruptly when her husband did not return from Vietnam. A sheltered housewife who could barely read and write, left with three small children, and without family and friends. So began her incredible journey toward caring for and building a future for her children. Faced with every tragedy known to mankind, and armed with nothing but sheer will power, Moon discovered a knack for negotiating lucrative real estate business deals. Although Moon’s new life brought many hardships, working for days without sleep, dealing with the sorrow of losing two children tragically, struggling with illiteracy, to name a few, Moon was forever grateful for every hardship she experienced and overcame. Moon wanted to share her life story with others. To give hope to those who are at their darkest hour. To inspire those who want to achieve more in life. To help people stop feeling sorry for themselves. By sharing herself with others, she hoped that they would appreciate what they have – no matter how small – and use it to their fullest potential. Most, if not all, readers will find they have much, much more to start with compared to Moon. So you’ll be left with no excuses for fulfilling your dreams and armed with the motivation to do so. She achieved the impossible, so can you!
