Edith Flagg is truly an inspiration to all A Simple Girl tells the life story of a woman who survived the unimaginable and fulfilled the American Dream Flagg was born in a small town in Romania in 1919 Having traveled to Vienna to go to fashion school at the young age of 15 she watched Hitler march into Austria and decided at that moment I'm so happy to have finally read this wonderful book that Josh Flagg decided to start writing when he was 14 years old and finish it years later Edith Flagg passed away in Aug of 2014 at the tender age of 95 The stories that Flagg collected were wonderful to read Like so many others who have read her book we all wanted to know about certain points but Edith was never a woman to go on and on about certain points or stories She was a woman that kept things very simple and to the point No reason to beat around the bush when the facts are enough to tellI first learned about this amazing woman on the show Million Dollar Listing LA I think a lot of people tuned into that show just hoping that Edith would be on just a little bit What made her so likable was her relationship with her grandson Josh In the show Josh talked about how if ever he had a problem in life he could always call his grandmother who lived in the same building as him and go and talk with her anytime he wanted She made sure to always be available for him when he had a problem I wish we could have seen of those talks because her wisdom was so honest about people life and business This was a woman that knew how to separate those three pillars of life and put them into perspectiveThe stories this book covers were mostly from her time during the horrible years of WWII and how she had to be very careful about her way of living otherwise she might be caught Her small size made it easy to move about as if she was a kid and women had freedom to move around than men did Her take on the way though was not without risk taking Edith knew how to understand people so well that she knew how to take advantage of them in certain situations and she used that knowledge many times to save herself and friends and later on during business dealsThe second part of the book I enjoyed because she explained how she started her own business from only having 5 dollars after arriving in America When you think about the many businesses today needing hundreds of thousands of dollars and even millions compared to what this lady did she laughs at how stupid they are in understanding how to start a business She did it all through hard work and amazing people skills That is what I loved about the second part she explained the many situations she caught herself in and how she got out of them For a lady who is very short she was very smart when it came to business and peopleAfter all her hard work the life she gave herself afterwards was one she earned There was a uote she said about food in the book that stuck with me and that was I also promised myself I would never stand in line for food I have never stood in line for anything; I will notpg 76 That uote showed the number of promises she made to herself during the war and held true to them With the lifestyle she created for herself and the places Josh and her would eat at in the show it showed the truth in the values she hadFor anyone that wants to learn about how the people during the war were treat read this book If you are interested in learning the hard work it takes to build a company from the ground up then read this book If you need values to instill into your own life that are proven and well grounded then read this book The values her father gave her ring true for eternity One being that parents need to teach their kids the value and appreciation of food and to never take it for granted as her father asked her regularly What did you do to deserve these meals? Is a uestion parents need to start asking their kids to teach them the importance of food in daily lifeEdith Flagg was very grounded in life and because she understood the harsh realities of life she knew to never take things for granted and that you have to work hard to achieve anything If you have no idea who this lady is you can read her wikipedia page but also make it a point to read this book You will be glad you did
