Franklin, TN (PRWEB) November 09, 2011
World-class keynote speaker, author and inspirational success coach Wendy Stevens has done it again. This blockbuster success is now the co-author of the newly-released book 'Guerrilla Marketing Remix: Best of Guerrilla Marketing' by legendary marketing guru Jay Conrad Levinson. Opportunities such as this weren't always at the forefront for Wendy Stevens, however. Her tale is truly one of inner strength and overcoming major obstacles to create an astounding success story.
In early 2000, a bitter divorce wrenched Wendy Stevens from her life as a comfortable Nashville socialite, leaving her an unemployed single mother on the verge of losing everything. Like so many baby boomer women, necessity forced her to launch a second career. But Wendy not only launched a second career, she drew upon her experience as an athlete and coach to succeed beyond her wildest imagination.
In 1980, a devastating head-on collision with a drunk driver robbed Wendy Stevens of her rocket tennis serve, causing her to lose her tennis scholarship to the University of North Carolina. Undaunted, Wendy Stevens enrolled at the University of Maryland, and decided to take up Lacrosse.
Maryland was building a dynasty, a national powerhouse, jam packed with All-American players, and Wendy Stevens had never even played Lacrosse before. But through ability, tenacity, and her whatever-it takes determination, Wendy not only walked on to the team, she became an All American, as well as Captain and Most Valuable Player for the National Champion 1986 University of Maryland Women's Lacrosse Team.
Out of college and into a marriage, Wendy Stevens and her new husband moved to Nashville where she used her whatever-it-takes tenacity to walk on again—right into her dream job—building and coaching a brand new Division I lacrosse program at Vanderbilt University. Single-mindedly employing her vaunted skills in recruiting, coaching, and team building, she catapulted the fledgling Vanderbilt program to number 18 in the country in its second year— another Cinderella story tale for Wendy Stevens.
Just when it looked like divorce had ended her fairy-tale life, Wendy Stevens walked on again, this time into direct sales as an online marketer through tenacity and determination, soon reached the top as a multiple seven-figure earner. She did this by utilizing the same core skills she mastered as a champion athlete and coach: the ability to inspire with her words, the ability to illustrate with the ups and downs of her own life story, and the unfailing ability to transform crowds into communities, and communities into championship-level teams.
Today, Wendy Stevens is the CEO of Local Guerrilla Marketing and continues to coach budding entrepreneurs around the world. Her greatest satisfaction is reproducing the financial success she has achieved in the lives of others and in building a team of champions while having fun along the way. 'Guerrilla Marketing Remix: Best of Guerrilla Marketing' was recently released and is available for purchase in bookstores and on Kindle. Wendy Stevens splits her time between Franklin, Tennessee and Fort Lauderdale, Florida and is the proud mother of Bo and Haley.
