FUN FACTS ABOUT ME
I'm a software nerd! Over the years, I've tested hundreds of client management, business management, marketing, and project-based software systems. To say that I'm an “app collector” is a bit of an understatement. Being an OCD software tester which is one of my super powers!
I named my son Carson after the legendary Johnny Carson.
In the mid-90s, I was the executive assistant to the best-selling author and spiritual guru, Marianne Williamson.
I collect domain names! Each time I have a “good idea”, I purchase the domain name for it because HEY – you never know!
(This one is probably the weirdest) I know all the lyrics to the Broadway Musical, A Chorus Line.

A BRIEF HISTORY…
In early 1999, I joined an ecommerce tech startup as Director of Production.
I was immediately bitten by the SaaS bug and online marketing. It was around the time that ecommerce was picking up momentum, and EVERYONE wanted to sell something online. I manage the client relationships during and post web-development, and a team of young, brilliant programmers.
I quickly realized my passion for helping people understand that simply opening an online store wasn't going to bring the masses. After all, this wasn't “if you build it, they will come” Field of Dreams. I was passionate about helping them see the whole picture – marketing, online ecommerce, and customer attraction and customer satisfaction.
In 2001, I left the ecommerce company to follow my passion. I built a very successful online marketing and web consultancy with a mission was to help small businesses that were venturing into ecommerce create a cohesive, integrated marketing, website and ecommerce presence. IT WAS AWESOME!
BACK TO WORK FULL-TIME…UGH
In 2013, I scaled back on my private clients and accepted a full-time position as Director of Marketing for a small high-tech company. TIn 2015, I made a jump to an enterprise-sized tech company – an offer I thought I couldn't refuse. WOW – what a learning experience! This turned out to be one of the best and worst career choices of my life. This was a company in turmoil, and after a variety of spin-off to merger/acquisition, I was laid-off in February 2017.
HERE'S THE THING: I would have never left this job. A job that I was bored to death in. A job that gave me no creative freedom.
On the day of the lay-offs, I remember thinking, “oh no – what happens to me if I'm still sitting at my desk at 4pm.”
I was more afraid to be “stuck there” than be laid off!
Turns out, that lay-off – that entire corporate experience – helped me create BUILD SUCCESS WITH WENDY! Finding my true purpose by helping people work through their business overwhelm so that they can build their own simplified success was exactly what I'm meant to be doing!
VARIETY IS MY SPICE OF LIFE
Over the past 17+ years, I've worked with a wide variety of clients including solo entrepreneurs, best-selling authors and personal development experts, life coaches, high-tech companies, celebrities, and C-level executives.
This rich experience has given me real-life training that I'm going to share with you!
