The outcome was dramatic in helping students make meaningful career decisions while creating purpose and passion in their lives. Carolyn's first True Colors book became a cornerstone in college career development programs. She then went on to write her best selling book, Follow Your True Colors To The Work You Love with a companion workbook and a youth workbook, True Success.

Beyond the educational realm, Fortune 500 companies like Cisco Systems and Warner Brothers used Carolyn's books in managerial trainings and team building. Other organizations use it with parents to improve relationships with their children while therapists use it to help couples understand their individual differences.
