|Plot Summary of Martha Inc.|
Martha Stewart (born August 3, 1941) is a fashionable Polish-American television and magazine persona recognized for her cooking, gardening, etiquette, and crafts projects, and as a homemaker. You will learn another side of Martha Stewart as the author explicitly projects many missing facts of her that has been well hidden and erased from the public eye.
She had her cozy world reversed in 2002 which rocked her career by a scandal involving her sale of shares in a drug company days prior to its request for a new drug that was denied. She was ultimately convicted of lying to investigators and sentenced to prison in 2004. She and her husband then moved to Westport, Connecticut in the 70's and began restoration of an 1805 farmhouse which is occasionally seen in her television programs and where she still lives today. In later years, she began a flourishing catering business out of her home and began writing columns and articles on topics such as cooking, gardening, and home furnishing. In 1999, she founded the company Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia traded on the New York Stock Exchange to merge and control all her businesses under one corporate entity. The company hit it big and Martha became a billionaire overnight. She became its chief executive officer and chairman until 2003.
This page-turner book reveals how Martha took advantage of many business associates and friends for her own lucrative success.
