PR Newswire

TARPON SPRINGS, Fla., May 4, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Mother's Day is a celebration for the toughest job on earth - raising our children. A mother's success is to love and be there for her children. This includes encouraging them and teaching them life skills. Regardless of whether you're a single or married mom, rich or poor, the challenge is equal. Author Vonda White has released a book that mothers can use to make their job a little bit easier. Success Against the Odds™ contains the recipe for succeeding in life, despite your circumstances. You can improve your life and your relationships. One out of three kids are raised by a single parent - 85 percent being their mom.

"My mom raised us by herself and I'm a single mom of three," says White. "No one ever claimed that motherhood was easy, but we can create the family we dream of. We can teach ourselves and our children how to set and achieve goals and be the best we can be. We can do this by starting with our own lives."

White wrote Success Against the Odds to share her tips of her success from welfare to millionaire, and offers readers a chance to win $10,000 for following their dreams. Through the One Year Challenge, White invites readers to work on their goals for one year and share their accomplishments. Several will be awarded monetary prizes of $1,000, and the one with the most inspiring story will be awarded the grand prize of $10,000. This Mother's Day, treat yourself by committing to the challenge and you'll see how your life can dramatically change for the better in less than a year.

"I hope that mothers - rich, poor, single or married - take this challenge," says White. "We make a major difference in our children's lives and this book is designed to give women and children the tools to live the life they dream of. With the possibility of winning $1,000 or even $10,000, there's an extra incentive to work hard and not quit."

The book, which recently received the Editor's Choice Award and the Rising Star Award, also comes with the accompanying Success Against the Odds™ Planner, a workbook tool to help people take action on their goals, daily, weekly and monthly, so dreams can become reality.

Success Against the Odds™, which focuses on achieving success regardless of your circumstances, features several amazing stories of such people as Debbie Fields, founder of Mrs. Fields Cookies, Rich De Vos of Amway, Brian Scudamore of 1-800-Got-Junk, and many others who started with little but a dream and succeeded. In addition to telling her story, White gives readers advice on how to set and reach their goals so they live the life they imagine.
