Dreams of an Immigrant Allows You to
Learn the Secrets of Success
No Matter What Your Circumstances

Iíll be honest with you. I am an expert in a few things and have lots of opinions about many others.

However, I wanted to share my life experiences and my philosophies for success through this book, in hopes that I might make a difference in someoneís life.

You may agree with some of my choices, philosophies, and advice; may disagree with others.

And that's as it should be. But it is my prayer that this book will continue to inspire and motivate you or someone you love to live life to its fullest.

A Rough BeginningÖ

Growing up in Paraguay, we didnít have running water, a refrigerator, or a television. We retrieved water in a bucket from a reservoir made of brick and concrete.

To help keep the water clean, we added small fish to eat the organic matter. If we didnít have fish, we added iodine.

So How Did I Get From There to Here?

I was always very ambitious, and I believe that was partly the way God made me and partly my father telling me I could do and be anything I wanted.

I earned a Ph.D. in industrial chemistry from the Nacional University of Asuncion in Paraguay and two masterís degrees from Purdue University, where I also received a Distinguished Alumni and Master's Awards.

But that is not what makes me an expert on how to live an extraordinary life.

For seven years I managed a 60 person department as Research Director for Citrosuco Paulista, one of the largest citrus companies in the world.

But that is not what makes me an expert on how to live an extraordinary life.

I also served as an engineer for seven years and ultimately as a manager for a Technical Center at Food Machinery Corporation, FMC a prestigious American company located in the US and overseas.

But that is not what makes me an expert on how to live an extraordinary life.

I then started my own company, Citrus Consulting International, where I forecast orange crop production for private corporations.

I am well known throughout the citrus world and am often quoted as an expert source in The Wall Street Journal, Estado de Sao Paulo, the Tampa Tribune, the Lakeland Ledger, Dow Jones, and other national media.

And even thatÖis not what makes me an expert on how to live an extraordinary life.

What Actually Makes Me an Expert at
Creating an Extraordinary Life isÖ

Okay. Here it is. Itís very simple. Are you ready?

The fact that I AM living an extraordinary life makes me qualified to share with others HOW to live an extraordinary life.

I have a successful business, a wonderful marriage, and a beautiful daughter. I have learned the hard way the importance of putting your family first. I overcame the odds of poverty and struggled to come to America to live the American dream. I am living proof that it can still happen.

"I have known Dr. Elizabeth S. Steger since the 1980s. We met because of a professional interest in crop forecasting. I have been privileged to be a close friend of Elizabeth and her family through all of these years. She is an outstanding human being, both personally and professionally.

Her book Dreams of an Immigrant certainly exemplifies these attributes, from the opening poem Why Dream to the closing chapter The Ultimate Dream. In fact, reading that last chapter first may make all the others more meaningful and cohesive. The book is not only autobiographical, but covers a wide spectrum of the history of her native country (Paraguay), including many candid observations of human endeavor and faith.

I believe her book will be meaningful for people of all ages. For the young it is an inspiration to excellence in all aspects of life. For the older reader, it reflects an appreciation of life that has been, through all kinds of trials, always true to The Dream."

"Dreams of an Immigrant by Elizabeth S. Steger, PH.D., contains a wealth of guidance in the two-hundred-fifteen pages. Dr. Steger stresses the importance of education and goals. She impresses on the reader to know their children - their individual talents and dreams, and encourage them to reach for their goals."

"I first met Elizabeth Steger in Brazil years ago and knew immediately that this was a bright, motivated young woman. When I heard she had written a book about her immigrant impressions, I had to have it.

I read the entire book the evening I received it. Just understanding her dreams was an inspirationÖWithout a dream, we wander in life but Elizabeth makes a dream real in her book. I highly recommend it to anyone with a dream for a better life."

"If you read nothing else this year, read Dr. Steger's Dreams of an Immigrant. A powerful, simple story about family, life and work."

Lango Deen,
Hispanic Engineer and
Information Technology magazine

"The author is an amazing woman! Writing a book is not an easy endeavor, but writing a book in your second language must be even harder. These pages stand as a marvelous testimony to the author's persistence in communicating her message to others. Her words are conversational, yet filled with genuine insights. Her story meanders across continents and cultures, creatively combining images and situations for a comprehensive view of her life.

Most noteworthy is her sincere desire to help others achieve their goals. In simple, practical, and completely realistic ways, she outlines the approaches and methods she used to succeed. Her words ring with authenticity, as they fill the pages with a quiet authority. From her girlhood in Paraguay to her successful career in America, readers will find themselves on a wonderful journey with a fascinating woman.

Everyone has a dream, but not everyone knows how to dream with a purpose. The author gently guides readers to the right choices, which can make a profound difference. Dreams of an Immigrant is an eye-opening look at the possibilities of reality!"

"A Latin American Tony Robbins or Dale Carnegie by nature, Steger is an advocator of personal success through a belief in yourself and God, with which you can combat any obstacle in life. She has defied diagnostic advice from doctors in favor of her more holistic approach, used prayer successfully as a life panacea, and has a vociferous determination that would make many ordinarily ambitious people feel slightly insecure.

I was pleased to read how someone with this kind of perseverance elevated herself from poverty to productivity. While reading some of the book, I did feel at times that Steger's passion was at the expense of her family and relationship with her husband and daughter, but fortunately Steger realized this herself in a moment of cognition and took a born-again approach to her religion that re-established her relationships with God, husband Fred, daughter Kathleen, and, most importantly, herself."

Why Dream
Elizabeth Salomoni Steger

Some dreams come true,
While others die,
But the real ones
Always stay alive.

They are so strong
They won't stay away,
Their sound repeats
Day by day.

Until you conquer,
They won't let go
Because you're destined
To reach your goal.

It's up to you
To turn on the light,
And carry forward
Your flame's delight.

And then someday
Because of you
Others will see
That dreams come true.
