The Wild Idea That Changed Millions of Lives
After publishing her game-changing social research at Duke University, Wendy was invited to speak at a professional conference where she was recruited to manage organizational evaluation research at Texas Christian University. One of her projects caught the eye of the United States Senate where she was invited to present her results. Wendy’s presentation influenced a significant vote by the senators that has since saved millions of lives.
The experience presenting for the Senate dramatically affected Wendy’s perspective on business ethics and inspired her to open her own business — a social experiment designed to prove business could be more effective and profitable if we shift all operational priorities from making money to making an impact in the lives of all stakeholders.
Wendy’s experimental business showed unprecedented revenue growth in record time leading local merchants and national chains to invite her to share her “secrets.” To Wendy’s delight, her formulas were easily transferred and produced dramatic results across a wide range of industries.
Determined to prove her strategies would work for anyone, Wendy went on to build 10 more successful retail and service businesses of her own while delivering thousands of programs for Fortune, healthcare, small business, nonprofit, and entrepreneurial organizations worldwide with her proven strategies and targeted definition of business impact:
IMPACT is the measurable difference we make in people’s lives as the direct result of contact with our team, marketing, products, and services.
Today, Wendy’s Focus On Impact® and Move People To Action™ Business Acceleration Systems have enabled her to help more than 5,000,000 people through bestselling books, world-class speaking engagements, media interviews, organizational consulting and training programs, and her own sold-out live events.

In fact, 93% of Wendy’s audiences report they implemented her formulas with measurable results.
In a follow-up study of more than 1,000 organizations, those who applied Wendy’s formulas reported an average increase in revenues of more than 200% after only 30 days with continued growth upwards of 1,000% in one year.
Wendy sums up her approach this way: “I help executives, experts and entrepreneurs capitalize on the global economy by focusing every aspect of their business on making a measurable difference in people’s lives.
