Few lives are as dramatic as Lina Kennedy’s, and few stories of survival and triumph are as satisfying as this inspirational autobiography.
Professionally, Lina is the founder of a multimillion-dollar business based on her hard work, innovations, and discoveries. She speaks and teaches around the world. Yet behind the compelling story of how she built her company lies another drama, the tale of an abused child who could not be crushed.

Raised in poverty and dysfunction, she was sustained by her inner strength and by a near-death experience at age seven, a mysterious gift of reassurance and hope. Alcoholics Anonymous rescued the family, but Lina faced years of healing even as she pursued the bright future she knew she would eventually create.

In her twenties, a single mother with little education, she mystified her friends by refusing to play it safe, never staying in one job or one relationship. Instead, she amassed a wealth of experience and met a cast of colorful characters who imparted lessons about whom to trust, what to risk, and how to navigate in a hazardous world. In her thirties, bedridden from injuries in an accident caused by a drunk driver, she saw by chance the business opportunity she had been waiting for and literally got up from bed to seize it. From there, she raced to entrepreneurship, expansion, and success.

The two stories of Lina Kennedy, professional and personal, come together in this book and in Lina herself, a woman whose insight, courage, and indomitable spirit are an example for anyone who dreams of a better life.

    “A must-read story of courage and determination”

  2. Amanda Strunk Miller, Publisher, Dermascope Magazine

    “Raw, packed with emotion, and at times heartbreaking, Kennedy’s is a must-read story of strength, tenacity, and gumption. Her business success makes her truly deserving of the title Sugar Queen, and in this book she reveals a gut-wrenching, yet captivating, history of personal success as well. Kennedy’s story of triumph over all odds will leave you pondering your own potential to overcome and succeed.”

    What an inspirational story!
    Books I like to read are typically about people who overcome major life obstacles/challenges and become successful.
    Reading Lina’s book shows how having determination, wit, a strong work ethic and forgiveness in her heart, led to a rich and fulfilling life.
    I was her friend during several earlier years of her journey, but learned a great deal about her strength by reading this book. Her “Gypsy Spirit” took her on many adventures, trials and tribulations.
    Warning! Once you start reading this book, you will not want to stop. It is a story that will capture you, tug at your heart strings, and keep you captive. It’s a well written, easy to read book that will inspire all readers!
