  • Anything I Can Do... You Can Do Better

  • Tessa Souter shows how she succeeded against the odds, how others have done it and how you can do it too.

    Part inspirational memoir, part secrets-divulging interviews with celebrities and others who have successfully pursued their dreams, this book will show how Tessa Souter took herself from teenage mother to successful sub-editor at a leading glossy magazine, to international journalist, and on to become a singer, performing in top jazz clubs, frequently to standing-room-only audiences in London, Los Angeles and New York. It will also explain exactly how other successful actors, film makers, photographers, painters, producers, writers, dancers and musicians achieved their goals.

    Anything I Can Do, You Can Do Better provides step-by-step strategies and advice, tackling such thorny problems as money and how to survive, negotiating intimate relationships, dealing with jealousy and competitiveness, taking care of the children, as well as practical suggestions and tips.

A runaway at 16, and a single parent by 18, Tessa moved to San Francisco where she supported herself as a struggling writer in a new country by cleaning houses for two years. Driven by the need to communicate, she joined the Writer's Grotto in San Francisco and then became a successful journalist, working as a sub-editor at Elle and subsequently writing for the world's top publications. Part of her personal story has been featured in British Vogue. She moved to New York in 1996 and began her third successful career with a scholarship to the Manhattan School of Music. Jazz legend Mark Murphy said of her: 'She's my next star.
