Summary

Summary

Hailed as "411 for the Under-21" by People Magazine, Stay Strong is equal parts advice and inspiration from Hollywood public relations pro Terrie Williams.



At the core of Stay Strong is the idea that with the right attitude and strategies, kids can truly accomplish anything. And Terrie Williams is the ideal person to encourage and inspire. Her solid advice about ambition, goals and making real, personal connections speaks to readers without a hint of preaching. Urging them to stick to just a few simple but powerful rules -- tools that have successfully served Terrie's famous clients - Janet Jackson, Wesley Snipes, and Boyz II Men, for example. Terrie also lends insight into real teens' lives, and captivates with true rags-to-riches success stories. People will respect you if you respect them, she urges - as long as you can have that courage not to conform. As Terrie says at the closing of every conversation, above all else, "Stay Strong."
