About Reflections of a Successful Wallflower – Lessons in Business; Lessons in Life:
Andrea Michaels is literally the backbone of the special events industry. In fact, Special Events magazine awarded her the one-time Pillar of the Industry Award in January, 2014. Michaels launched her business when there was no formalized or defined marketplace. She was, and still is, a trailblazer, pioneering the way for others to follow. Always on the cutting edge of the business, she has stacked up a pile of firsts (and more than 50 prestigious awards) in her legendary career – initiating corporate mystery events and interactive themes, charging into the international market ahead of her colleagues, incorporating never-before-used technology into her events, just to name a few. That alone should make her extraordinary, but she runs much deeper. Noted as one of the most caring and giving educators of our time, she has traveled the world to teach others not just her art and craft but to help them learn from her own mistakes. How did this genius evolve? Why is she so revered by all her peers? What does she know that we don’t?
This book can only be compared to reading Andrea’s diaries. This first inductee into the industry Hall of Fame shares, openly and candidly, not only the public wunderkind but the inner woman. Discover the workings of one of the foremost event producers in the world. You’ll laugh; you’ll cry; you’ll be in disbelief and fascinated at the same time. She is a storyteller, and her stories and her life are great lessons for everyone.
What readers are saying:
“Master Event Planner and now Master Storyteller! You can not be in the Event Business and not have heard
of Andrea Michaels. I have followed her career for years and have always been in awe of the events she has produced and her status within the industry. When I heard Andrea had a book coming out, I thought it would be fun to read how she pulled off some of the biggest events in the World, but the book is so much more. Yes, your heart will race when you hear how she got herself in and out of some of the BIGGEST events across the planet, but you cry and cheer for her
as you find that her relationships with her Mother and men in her life are also events in her life that she learns to overcome. She is one amazing woman, and all I can say is that I pray Andrea does not stop here. I will anxiously be waiting for Part 2.” – T. Seigel
“Invaluable Lessons and Insights! Andrea Michaels has written the “first testament” of the event producer’s bible.” -Claudia Casillas
“Pages of wisdom without the ego! A must read! I’m always on the lookout for books relating to “how to succeed” topics, and this one caught my attention because it offered scenarios that deal with real events and real people. Andrea seems to have mastered that illusive trait of removing her ego in order to find and offer the best solutions to tense situations. Anyone reading this book will gain wisdom from her ability to create win-win solutions. There’s pain behind the candor, but she’s come out the other side with humor and confidence that comes through in each chapter. She shares all she’s learned, openly and honestly with us. I loved the different tricks, tactics and resolutions she uses to achieve success. No wonder she made it to the top, but more than that, she’s established herself as a true mentor to all who know her and now through this book. Entertaining, instructive and fun, this is a must read for anyone who wants to learn how to deal with the public and survive!” -Tootsie P.
