Her First Secret Recipe: Making It Against All Odds

How did Debbi Fields, a young housewife barely out of her teens, manage to create the first, biggest and most successful cookie store empire in the world? In short, by sticking to her beliefs and following her own heart. She discusses: what it takes to make a dream come true when armed only with an idea; her fast rise to the top predicated on her philosophy that "Good Enough Never Is;" her management style, which she believes promotes company growth; and her personal climb to the ranks of those few who had achieved the American dream to its fullest extent.
