WHH52 Linda M. Stephens The Win Heather Havenwood

Who is Linda M. Stephens?

Linda M. Stephens is a former Wall Street worker turned IFBB Pro Figure Competitor with a Masters in Nutrition. She is my personal fitness and nutrition coach and she is helping me prepare for my first appearance on a fitness stage in a long, long time.

Linda often gets asked why she competes at a professional level and to this question she has very simple but powerful response …

“I compete for myself.” – Linda M. Stephens

How Figure Competitions Help Linda's Business

You might see a direct correlation as to how figure competitions can help with a business but, for Linda, it's directly connected since a lot of her clients are also fitness competitors.

However, in a much broader sense, I firmly believe taking care of your body will carry over into the other areas of your life and help you to be a better person and entrepreneur.

“As an entrepreneur, how you are with your body and how you are with your business is very similar.” – Heather Havenwood

Linda's Experience Working on Wall Street

Linda spent over a decade in the hustle and bustle that is Wall Street. While she says she would never work on Wall Street again, she is very thankful for her time there and how the experience has carried over into being an entrepreneur.

“In order to survive in the financial world, you have to have a confidence about you.” – Linda M. Stephens
