The international supermodel shares personal stories and lessons learned from a life of “living dangerously—carefully.”

Maye Musk at seventy-one is a fashionable, charming, jet-setting supermodel with a fascinating and tight-knit circle of family and friends. But things were not always so easy or glamourous—she became a single mom at thirty-one years old, struggling 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 dietician, all the while starting over in eight different cities across three countries and two continents. But she made her way through it all with an indomitable spirit and a no-nonsense attitude to become a global success at what she calls the “prime of her life.”

As the twenty-and thirty-somethings who follow her obsessively on social media know, Maye is a fount of frank and practical advice on how the choices you make in every decade can pay off in surprising, exciting ways throughout your life. In A Woman Makes a Plan, 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). You can’t control all that happens in life, but you can have the life you want at any age. All you have to do is make a plan.

INTERNATIONALLY-RECOGNIZED CELEBRITY: Canadian-born, Maye made her New York Fashion Week debut in 2017 and has walked many runways since. She has appeared on magazine covers all over the world, including Cosmopolitan, Allure, New York Magazine, Time, Vanity Fair, Vogue, W, and Elle.

MAJOR INFLUENCER: She has been an integral part of cosmetic giant CoverGirl’s rebranding and has major contracts with Olay, Moncler, and Swarovski. She has appeared on TV shows such as Today (NBC), Sunday Morning (CBS), Fox Business (Fox), and Your Morning (CTV).

LARGE SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORM: Female millennials who like fashion, beauty, and to be inspired are fans of Maye, who has an Instagram following of 234k+.

NETWORK OF CELEBRITY SUPPORTERS: In addition to son Elon Musk, Maye’s friends and colleagues who will support the book include Kim Kardashian, Maria Shriver, Cocoa Rocha, Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana, Christie Brinkley, and Emma Roberts.
