Life isn't always easy, and personal tragedy is something most of us face on some level. Each day we have a choice--to live in fear or live beyond it. No one knows this better than Jennifer Gilbert, founder of the event management company Save the Date and author of the book I Never Promised You a Goodie Bag. After a vicious attack that left her for dead, Gilbert had a choice: She could wallow in self-pity or go on living her life. She chose the latter, and has turned her painful story into one of success.
