Book Review by Kam Williams
"To become a celebrity is no easy feat, but in today's world, it is
easier than ever… Anyone – in any business – can become a celebrity
following my proven 3-Step Method…
To celebritize oneself is not merely to gain fame or fortune. It's to share
one's life experiences with others who may be in search of, and in need of,
your wisdom. That's the guiding philosophy for becoming a celebrity."
--Excerpted from the Preface (pg. 1)
Andy Warhol once predicted that in the future everyone would be famous
for 15 minutes. Today, Marsha Friedman is doing the pop icon one better by
suggesting that not only can anyone become a celebrity but that "done
smartly, fame can last a lifetime."
And she delineates just how to achieve that goal in Celebritize Yourself, a
self-help book offering a step-by-step plan leading to a life in the
limelight. In fact, Ms. Friedman's method has just three simple steps,
namely: Write, Speak and Sell.
What she means by this is that you should begin by writing a book and/or
articles on a specific topic that you know a lot about. Being a published
author will in turn qualify you to speak as an expert about the same subject
on radio and TV, at conventions and seminars, at schools and churches, and
so forth. The final phase of the transformation into a household name
involves selling books along with other logical products and services, since
"each time you sell, you also sell yourself."
That's the basic bare bones plan, although the text definitely fleshes-out
Ms. Friedman's approach in much greater detail. Part pep talk, part
practical guide, Celebritize Yourself is designed to whet readers' appetites
for stardom while simultaneously helping them determine what work still
needs to be done in order to expedite that assault on immortality.
For example, the author has you answer a number of probing questions in the
spaces allotted about your strengths, your weaknesses and your reasons for
wanting to be a celebrity. Perhaps more importantly, she also has you
identify your mission, your target audience, and your plans for yourself
once you've finally achieved greatness. In this way, you won't end up just
another rich bugger with no social or personal agenda beyond mere
A viable roadmap to fame and fortune for those interested in maximizing
their potential by tackling the challenge of generating their own buzz.
