Against All Odds by Danielle SteelTaking chances is part of life, but when you bet your future against the odds, it’s a high-risk game. Kate Madison’s stylish resale shop has been a big SoHo success, supporting her and her four kids since her husband’s untimely death. Now they are grown and ready to forge lives of their own. And they all choose to play against the odds, to their mother’s dismay.
Isabelle, a dedicated attorney, is in line to make partner at her Wall Street firm when she falls for a client she represents in a criminal case. She tells herself she can make a life with him—but can she? Julie, a young designer, meets a man who seems too good to be true and falls under his spell. She marries him quickly, gives up her job, and moves to Los Angeles to be at his side—but is all what it seems? Justin is a struggling writer who pushes for children with his partner before they’re financially or emotionally ready. Will the strain on the relationship take too high a toll? And Willie, the youngest, a tech expert, makes a choice that shocks them all, with a woman twelve years older.
Kate—loving, supportive, and outspoken—can’t keep her children from playing against the odds. Can the odds be beaten? Not often—as her children have to learn for themselves. For Kate, the hardest lesson will be that she can’t protect the children she loves from the choices they make—but can only love them as they make them.

Self-Employment means a lower quality of life as well as having more chances! When talking to Karsten Schaal about the topic of founding an enterprise, there is a chance that you will never know whether it is a good idea in doing so, or if you should rather keep a certain distance to him. For Karsten it almost seems like it has become a free time activity to start new businesses. That is because he has tried over three times and in various ways to start up a new business in the E-Commerce sector. It all started with his foundation of a multimedia agency. His clients at the time refused to make the company focus on online marketing but rather demanded multifunctional online shops. The expectations regarding proficiency of those online shops were just boundless and unlimited.
Come to the Customer Service Excellence category the expert panel of judges awarded Melbourne-based Brava Lingerie the coveted award. The category saw the likes of Birdsnest, Naked Wines Australia, ECO Modern Essentials, Showpo and Appliances Online being judged on their focus on excellence in customer service across every touchpoint of their customer experience. While this award category recognises those retailers who know that they are only as good as their last communication, their last interaction and by adding value to their customers creating an experience that instills trust in their brand, Brava Lingerie, despite spreading their efforts across both in-store and online customer service, were selected as the winner over some of the leading online-only retailers in the field. According to the Brava Lingerie co-founders, the Brava values of compassion, inspiration, empowerment, integrity and respect are instilled into every customer interaction. This criteria has been successfully replicated online through their unique virtual fitter initiative; vital for busy women or those that cannot visit a store due to distance or perhaps a disability or anxiety.
