A Personal and Professional Metamorphosis Story

Maya Williams is an ambitious, hard-working, New York businesswoman, stymied on her way up the corporate ladder by sexist, male executives. When sent to the Hawaiian island Kaua’i to speak at a conference, she finds herself having to make a choice that may jeopardize her entire career. 


On Kaua’i Maya experiences the chill island life for the first time, and as she meets the people who open her eyes to different ways of thinking and being, she begins to see life, work, love – and herself - in a whole new light.


When Maya returns to the corporate world, as an executive, can she implement her new philosophies and still succeed? And will her personal and professional metamorphosis ultimately bring her the happiness and freedom she dreams of?
