NEW YORK, NY, September 12, 2012 /24-7PressRelease/
-- Best-selling author and media personality Jennifer S. Wilkov has accepted an invitation to be the headliner at "Get the Edge" - THE EXTRAVAGANZA in Hollywood, CA, a gathering of the nation's leading coaches, entrepreneurs, speakers and writers.
During the three-day event, more than 30 best-selling authors and world-renowned business experts will share their knowledge and insights with those seeking exposure, with the end result being the acquisition of priceless information, invaluable connections, and new levels of business they never imagined.
"I am genuinely excited for the opportunity to speak to such a distinguished group of coaches and entrepreneurs," said Wilkov. "It fits perfectly with what I do, which is helping people help others by using my story to illustrate that the way you craft your message is of utmost importance."
Viki Winterton, co-producer of THE EXTRAVAGANZA and founder of Expert Insights Publishing, is looking forward to Wilkov's contributions to the event. "Jennifer S. Wilkov will lead the group of more than 100 attending entrepreneurs, writers and coaches in discovering how to make their message magical to drive success in any economy," Winterton said.
THE EXTRAVAGANZA will be held September 19-21 in Hollywood, CA at the famous Magic Castle mansion. On September 20, Wilkov will be speaking in two different time slots. First, she will be the featured speaker during the luncheon event; then, later that evening she will share the stage with Michael E. Gerber, who has been labeled "The World's #1 Small-Business Guru" by Inc. magazine.
Wilkov has astounded audiences with her inspirational story for more than a decade, and is a master at taking the worst situations and turning them into positives. What she has done with her own story is the perfect example.
Imprisoned at Rikers Island prison for a crime she did not commit, she refused to let her sentence break her. "People tell me they can't even imagine what I went through, much less survive it," she said. "But I decided I had a choice. I could let it pull me asunder or I could survive. I knew there must be a reason why this was happening to me, so I also knew I must have it in me to fight - and that is exactly what I did."
Wilkov is the author or co-author of five books, including the best-seller, Dating Your Money: How to Build a Long-Lasting Relationship With Your Money in 8 Easy Steps
. In addition, she is co-author of the book Ready, Aim, Soar: The Expert Insight System for Business Growth and Success in the 21st Century
that is set to be released in September in conjunction with THE EXTRAVAGANZA. This is the third book in the international best-selling "Ready, Aim" anthology.
Wilkov is also the host of the "Your Book Is Your Hook"
Show, which airs every Tuesday morning at 9 a.m. on WomensRadio; and is the President of a full-service writing/marketing/publishing consulting service by the same name.
Jennifer S. Wilkov's passion for communication has led to her being a # 1 radio show host, a best-selling award-winning author, an international speaker, an award-winning freelance writer, a successful book business consultant and entrepreneur. She survived being incarcerated in one of New York's and the nation's most violent prisons, Rikers Island, after inappropriately being told to plead guilty to a crime she didn't commit by an attorney who mishandled her case.
Jennifer continued to succeed as an author, media personality, entrepreneur and speaker after enduring this devastating, unimaginable experience. She knows what it takes to live the life you love in the face of any challenge. She loves to inspire audiences everywhere with the insights, knowledge and wisdom she has gained so participants take action. Jennifer fans the flames of the Human Spirit in each audience member and empowers them to tell their story, express it transparently, leap powerfully into their lives and at last live the life they've imagined.
