Shelly Beach, South Africa (PressExposure) December 17, 2009 -- The new website of marketing whiz and successful entrepreneur Sharon Quarmby debuts on December 9, 2009. MarketingForBrilliance.com will make Sharon Quarmby's extensive marketing expertise from over 2 continents available to Phenomenal Women Entrepreneurs for the first time.
Sharon Quarmby is an inspiring and dynamic American female entrepreneur living in South Africa. She began her business career as a rookie sales rep for USA TODAY newspaper. In only seven months, she was promoted to Regional Marketing Manager, and after only two years, she was promoted again to National Advertising Sales. In that role, she worked with major corporations such as Radio Shack and American Airlines, and had the opportunity to work directly with several giants of the American corporate world, including the current President of Hearst Magazines, Cathie Black, and Tom Curley, the CEO of the Associated Press.
After Quarmby's successful tenure at USA TODAY, she became a financial advisor for an independent broker-dealer. As testament to her success as a financial advisor, she won trips around the world, including trips to Hawaii, France, Mexico, and Australia.
In 2005, Sharon Quarmby made a leap of faith: leaving behind family, friends, and a familiar culture, she moved to South Africa to marry a South African. Despite weathering a difficult year of culture shock and loneliness, Quarmby quickly regained her footing and continued her business success. By 2006, she was a top-selling Real Estate agent in a field she had never been in before. She repeated the victory again in 2007.
It would not be mere hyperbole to say that Mrs. Quarmby built her success as a South African real estate agent from nothing. In May 2006, Sharon Quarmby had zero sales. In less than ten months, she sold over 50 condominiums in a down market--as a rookie real estate agent.
By the end of 2007, not only had she won Pam Golding Properties' "Highest Number of Units Sold Award" in KZN she was named a "National Gold Club Finalist"--one of top 30 real estate agents in South Africa, out of over 2,000 agents. Despite a global downturn in the economy in general and housing in particular, Sharon Quarmby proves her success in marketing and sales on two continents.
Today, Sharon Quarmby is an author and highly sought-after speaker. She is also one of only 35 authorized Money, Marketing, and Soul coaches in the world. Quarmby's new website, geared specifically to help female entrepreneurs find success in business through their marketing brilliance, is an excellent resource that draws from Quarmby's twenty-two years as an extremely successful marketer and business woman.
