takes a little crazy to make a difference shares with readers the
author's year long journey which she encapsulates here in her own words.
“Tell me if this sounds sane: You are in the middle of a tumultuous time in
the economy. A crazy Presidential campaign is ensuing and every day as you look
at your 401K and other investments the number goes down, not up. Then you think,
you know what, I have to do something about this. “I know,” you say to
yourself, “I'll quit my job and travel the country in search of people
who can show me how they are stopping the madness, how they are taking control,
how they are making a difference
without being asked to do it and without asking permission.”
Yeah, I didn't think so either. So that's exactly what I did because
something inside of me told me I had to.
It was really crazy.
It was really hard.
Did I mention I was a single mom? No? Yeah…
I did it. I almost failed. I found amazing people along the way. They showed me
the true strength of human spirit. They gave me access to find mine. This book
will tell you the story.
Inside the book you will learn a little about me and what makes me tick. The
challenges I faced pulling off this crazy journey. The people I found and the
ways they stepped up, raised their hand and recognized they had a problem and
you might have that same problem. Then they committed to solving that problem
for both of us.
The book is written with the goal of inspiring you through showing you that no
matter what you look like, what you sound like, how much money or education you
have, you too can solve a problem that is facing you and others in your
Oh yeah, there is also a really great love story. (I may be a bit biased on that

The question "What would you do if
you won the lottery?" was the catalyst that caused Dafna Michaelson to
jump off her 15 year non-profit career track and travel the country seeking
stories that empower all of us. Her goal was, and still is:
"Changing the mirror we use that reflects who we are as a
society". Michaelson identifies herself as a little crazy too.
Crazy in love with her husband and about her kids. She's
also head over heals crazy about meeting real people who make the world a better
place starting with themselves. She lives in Colorado with her husband and
their gaggle of kids, dogs, and fish.
