Editorial Book Review:

by Michael Beas


With her life-changing book, "The 7 Secrets to Creating a Life You Love," Monique de Maio leads women on a path to a more purposeful and contented existence. This helpful manual, designed with women in leadership roles in mind, invites you to picture a life in which your decisions, opinions, and inner monologues become instruments for enhancing self-assurance and fulfillment.


Monique de Maio's method works well because she can eloquently incorporate relatable personal stories into each chapter. This gives her story a sincere touch and makes it possible for readers to identify strongly with the subject matter. Monique de Maio delivers more than just theoretical insights as she examines the effects of time, decisions, and internal and external narratives; she also gives her readers practical guidance, life-changing recommendations, and hacks.


Through the creation of a virtual community, the book helps professional women feel that they have similar experiences and goals in common. Readers discover inspiration and encouragement in the author's captivating writing style, which makes the path toward fulfillment, happiness, and intention not just achievable but possible.


Monique de Maio's work is noteworthy for its all-encompassing approach to life improvement. She addresses both sides, rather than just concentrating on overcoming limitations that are physical or psychological. Her focus on "micro-moments," or the tiny acts that add up to make progress, provides a novel viewpoint on personal growth.


Monique de Maio's choice to base her arguments on realistic tales from regular women rather than depending on exceptionalism or remarkable feats emphasizes the book's realism even more. This option promotes a feeling of unity among readers by enabling them to identify with the experiences of others.


"The 7 Secrets to Creating a Life You Love" is more than just a theoretical manual for women in leadership. Monique de Maio offers insightful advice based on real-life experiences, drawing from her vast background as a life coach and motivational speaker. Her writing is inspirational and approachable, which makes it simple for readers to relate to the subject matter and put the techniques into practice in their own lives.


To sum up, "The 7 Secrets to Creating a Life You Love" is a strong and transforming book that gives women the confidence to realize their greatest potential. Every page of this book is infused with Monique de Maio's enthusiasm for helping others, which makes it an essential read for anybody looking to live a happy, meaningful life.




About the Author

Monique de Maio


Welcome! I’m Monique de Maio, or MdM as many like to call me. As a trailblazing female leader who has dedicated my own life to helping women succeed, I am here to help you see possibilities in your personal and professional life. I love meeting and working with women in leadership–or on their way there–and having them discover how they can design lives they love.


Born in France, I came to the United States at the age of five with my family and quickly had to learn to navigate a new culture and language while also advocating for my family. As a child, I experienced bullying and discrimination, which would later inspire me to create a better world for women.


Despite facing blatant misogyny, sexism, and discrimination early in my career, I worked my way up from serving in marketing roles at IBM and on Wall Street to publishing a magazine to finally running my own successful business. 


Along the way, I encountered a lack of resources for women seeking mentorship and a lack of practical support for working and executive moms, and I vowed to change that for future generations of women.

My new book, The 7 Secrets to Creating a Life You Love: A Practical Guide for Women in Leadership, is the culmination of my decades-long experience as a businesswoman, entrepreneur, and mentor.

The podcast, Possibilities with Monique de Maio, is about helping women in (or aspiring to) leadership discover small things they can implement that can have a large impact on their happiness, success and well-being. I interview accomplished women who share their journeys and provide the listening audience with practical, pragmatic takeaways for all aspects of life.


My speeches incorporate the content, tone and approach of both the book and the podcast that women in leadership have found relatable, compelling and inspiring.


I invite you to listen to my podcast, get comfortable and pick up my book, or reach out to me about speaking at your next event.
