One Sip at a Time: a Memoir

Book Description

2018 Gold Medal Indie Books Winner
Musings on work, life and love by a remarkable octogenarian. Born as a child of The Great Depression, Rita Grisman left the farm in Nebraska to dance with the stars (like Frank Sinatra) on the hills of Hollywood then moved on up to The Big Apple to become a vital part of advertising’s Golden Age. There, she worked for some of the world’s greatest marketing agencies in the Swinging 60’s era of three martini lunches as a brilliant copywriter creating memorable ads (with Lauren Hutton, Tom Selleck, Jean Shrimpton and many others). She crafted iconic taglines for perfumes that still run today. She ascended the ranks to become an executive, ultimately retiring as Revlon’s first female vice-president. Rita Grisman was a trailblazer. Here, with a little help from me, she tells her story from The Tractor Years to The Cocktail Years and how she enjoyed her life just as she enjoyed her martinis – one sip at a time.

Five Stars I enjoyed reading “One Sip at a Time: A Memoir by Rita Grisman with Loralyn Mears which I found to be a very moving and intriguing story about the life of Rita Grisman born on a farm in the Great Depression and who later became an advertising executive of a major corporation in New York City. I also thought this story is an excellent inspirational book for all women seeking ways to cope with and succeed in a male-dominated business. I especially liked this excerpt, “Sandy was a very tough boss and truly demanding. I was the buffer between him and Flora. Despite Sandy’s no-nonsense reputation, we got along quite well, and some co-workers surmised he was taken with me, but I paid little attention to how others viewed me. Men or women. Lust or disgust: whether they lusted after or disgusted by what I wore, said or did, it never crossed my mind to think about what they thought. I came to work to do my job…” In my opinion, the book is presented in a straightforward and very intelligent manner. Yet I found it very entertaining, humorous, exciting and full of insight into the life of a very intelligent and successful woman. I loved the pictures and the way Loralyn Mears organized this wonderful, very educational and inspiring story. Again, I believe not only women will benefit from this book, but men can learn a lot from this story on how intelligent women think in the workplace. Very well done!
