Being in the prime of life: reinvention at any age
Feel Fantastic: Health and wellness
Finding happiness in work and life
Renowned model, dietitian, passionate advocate, and world-famous mother Maye Musk offers profound inspiration and actionable advice for a lifetime of both personal and professional success.Having become a single mom at 31, Maye struggled through poverty to provide for her three children; dealt with weight issues as a plus-size model and overcame ageism in the modeling industry; and established a lifelong career as a respected dietitian, all the while starting over in eight different cities across three countries and two continents.
In these radically candid, hilarious, and illuminating remarks she shares experiences and lessons from her life, conveying hard-earned wisdom on career, family and adventure. Breaking down her practical tips for both work and at home, and maxims that have gotten her through a life of many ups and downs, Maye leaves audiences empowered and with the tools to make a plan for fulfillment.
Maye has run her own nutrition business for over 45 years in eight cities and three countries through speaking, consulting, counseling, writing and media work. She has reached the peak in her field in three countries: the first Representative of the Consulting Dietitians of Southern Africa; President of the Consulting Dietitians of Canada; and Chair of the Nutrition Entrepreneurs, Academy of Dietetics and Nutrition. She also won the Outstanding Nutrition Entrepreneur Award in the USA. She was the first dietitian to be featured on a cereal box with her book, Feel Fantastic. In her newest book, A Woman Makes A Plan - Advice for a Lifetime Of Adventure, Beauty and Success, 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). She has been modeling since the age of 15 and had 4 billboards in Times Square in her 60s, probably a record. Maye gives presentations as an entrepreneur, fashion icon and nutrition expert to numerous corporations, associations, hospitals and universities.
She is an Ambassador for two non-profits that fit into her two careers: Big Green, building vegetable and fruit gardens in under-served schools; and Dress for Success, a global not-for-profit organization that has helped more than one million women achieve economic independence by providing a network of support, a variety of personal and professional development programs and work attire.
