Carolyn Gable, the author of Everything I Learned as a CEO, I Learned as a Waitress, has been the recipient and the giver of many a miracle. The single mother of 6 children, the CEO of a successful transportation company, the creator of the Expect A Miracle walkway along Geneva Lake and the list goes on. Carolyn is an inspiration to the world. Her book is the essential guide book on what it takes to succeed. Her common sense approach and quotes throughout the book are memorable and motivational.
Carolyn Gable's success stems not just from her work ethic and determination but from 12 fundamental principles she learned and mastered when she was a waitress. Drawing upon real life experience and detailing the life lessons learned, Carolyn has provided very succinctly a road map for our individual successes. Whether we are raising a family, working as a waitress or a struggling entrepreneur or struggling to find a job or simply trying to maintain a job in a cubicle, the 12 lessons Carolyn shares with us are brilliant flashes of genius.
Our lives are not determined by what happens to us, but by how we react to what happens; not by what life brings to us, but by the attitude we bring to life. A positive attitude causes a chain reaction of positive thoughts, events and outcomes. It is a catalyst...a spark that creates extraordinary results.
Throughout the book are comical sketches from Nick Galifianakis which keep the reader engaged and lives up to the very first chapter of "Have Fun". Carolyn truly share with us life is a journey. Each step is a new lesson.
This book is for all - it is a book of help for all. Her ending lesson is gratitude - gratitude of God - "never forget to say," Thank you, God."
"I will take attitude over aptitude any day of the week." Carolyn Gable
Carolyn Gable and Family
As a former Finance Director, I lobbied hard to always, always hire the very best. Sadly, often I had to look beyond our industry in order to find the best attitude. Yes, it takes more time to hire, and yes, it takes more time to look beyond your industry, but the effort is time well invested in the organization.
Looking outside the box and finding the "best of the best" lead our team to a new level of excellence. Attitude is contagious. Remember, when you are hiring you are hiring a team member, not just a person with technical expertise, you are putting in place an anchor, a human anchor if you will - IF the anchor has a solid attitude, the anchor will hold fast and keep the team together. Hire the very best, take the time and hire a great attitude. Look beyond the industry especially in these changing times. The linear background is pretty on paper but may not best serve your team.
Carolyn's words of wisdom are needed more than ever in this new business climate of accountability. Her emphasis upon honesty, her high standards of excellence to be your own person, mind your own business all support very funded and well built optimism to "Expect A Miracle".

If you are an entrepreneur,
always pay attention to your own
thoughts and how badly
you really want your business to succeed.
And always, always keep going.
A self-imposed dress code says you
care night about your job,
your company, and yourself
to look good.
To love what is,
now and forever, is to
live and rejoice in each
moment along the way.
Always, in All Ways: Expect a Miracle.

Carolyn walks her talk. When I met her she was near her walkway. A hot day where my make up was literally melted off and yet Carolyn looked very cool and crisp. Her personal energy was shining through but with no sign of the heat exhaustion that I was feeling. Best yet, she talked with you. She asked insightful questions and listened for the answers.
She was amazing because she knew exactly who I was. I had signed her book a couple of times. I never expected that she really read my replies. I knew the walkers would but the real woman behind the gate of Expect of Miracle! Wow!
As a mother myself, I appreciate the chapter "Look Good to Feel Good" not just for myself for also for my children. Society "accepts" any appearance. Raising the bar for children and their personal appearance is always a challenge.
