FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - JUNE 2014 Marsh Member Launches effort to encourage young People from all walks of life to do great things (Minnetonka) – What do some of the most successful people in America and right here at The Marsh have in common? They set and achieve goals, are passionate about helping others and work hard to make a living. Please join Marsh member and Deephaven resident Rob Severson at a party in the upstairs conference room at the Marsh on Tuesday, June 17, 2014, beginning at 5:30 p.m. He is celebrating the launch of his new book, Achievers: Ordinary People Who Do Extraordinary Things. “What I discovered when going into schools and speaking on the topic of achievement is that the kids really like hearing about the success stories of ordinary people, someone they could reach out and touch,” he said. Severson is a former bank president who readily admits he began his career as a classic underachiever. “It was thanks to the mentors who saw promise in me that I was able to achieve success in my own career.” Achievers: Ordinary People Who Do Extraordinary Things features the stories of people like Candy Swanson, a martial arts instructor and self-defense teacher at The Marsh, who despite the hardships she faced in life was willing to do whatever it took to provide for her family. “I am deeply grateful for all the people who shared their stories and took their precious time so they could help other people ‘figure it out!’ My goal is to use these stories when I talk with students, and encourage anyone who buys the book to do the same when the opportunities arise. I also hope to get it into the hands of teachers for classes on careers and life planning,” said Severson. Achievers: Ordinary People Who Do Extraordinary Things is accompanied by an online study guide that can be found on the website, www.robserverson.com.
