I was born in East Europe, and gained all my knowledge about philosophy, psychology and business there. I had a loving family with two siblings - a brother and a sister. When I was growing up, I tried to do my best at everything. I have a mother, Henrietta, in Ukraine, but my father, Grigory, passed away 6 years ago. He would be very proud if he knew that I wrote a book. I have a son, Vladislav. He is married to a young lady named Inga. I also have a granddaughter named Nika. She is 3 years old. Seven years ago I married an American man who helped me to understand the culture and history of America.  Now, I am an American citizen. Like many Americans, I believe in God, myself and the American dream.
