  More About Tammy Levent 


Help Me Pay it Forward

Everything happens for a reason! Sometimes we cannot understand why, we get deflated and hard to come out of our depressed state. I have been there and I want to give back and inspire others by donating to Go Fund Me Survivors, Hospitals, schools, charities and more. Below you will find a snippet of my bio, my story will inspire you and others. I need your help and as you continue to read you will understand why. My goal is Pay it Forward. I want to inspire others that there is hope and that we are not alone. 

What YOUR Go Fund Me donation will do for others is below! 

Everyone has a story, everyone has challenges.  Some of us more than others, my life has had unbelievable challenges starting at a very young age, some of what I have survived have been illnesses, elevator crash at 7 years old, physical and mental abuse by my father, stalker that set my apartment on fire at 18, living on my own from the age of 16, two close calls of being murdered, two hit and run accidents that left me with neck and back injuries, witness a leopard attack at 10 years old, lost all my income, breast cancer survivor, survived 911 in the travel industry and so much more. I have a collection of letters that I wrote at the young age of 7, new articles, photos and my inspiring story of never ever giving up.

My story if anything will inspire you as well.

In 1994, our lives changed when two armed robbers stole more than 95 percent of the inventory, forcing us to close. My husband was diagnosed with PTS after being violently beaten. Solely responsible for the financial support of my family, one year later, as I was training new employees in sales calls, my grandmother and my two small children were involved in a fatal car accident that left her dead and my children in critical condition. I resigned to take care of my family

It was a nurse in that ICU who posed the question that changed the course of my future. 

She asked, “If it had nothing to do with money, what would you do?” 

I said “I would travel the world.” 

With a family to feed, no assets, and a deficit of $180 thousand dollars, I leveraged strategic partnerships to build Elite Travel.
 
I have created many ways to help others by Paying it Forward with birthday parties and numerous charity to raise money for Foster Care homes, the arts, hospitals, donated an entire house of furniture to a women who was set on fire by her husband and was left broke and homeless with thousands of dollars in medical bills.  I created  www.itsmybag.cool donated used suitcases for foster care children nationally. Pay It Forward 

 In 2013, I partnered with several top entrepreneurs, including Kevin Harrington (Shark Tank and As Seen on TV), to develop The Travel Agent’s Success Kit ™ to help struggling travel agencies successfully adapt to this new age of travel. Now travel agents across the globe have access to my videos, webinars, books, and my personal mentorship, so they can learn the business strategies that will allow them to be more than travel agents – they’ll become entrepreneurs.  I’m always Paying it forward, I am blessed even with all these horrific events in my life.   I’m finally asking for your help after all these years.   Pay it Forward

You know my brief bio, but you don't know the whole story. My name is Tammy Levent and I've been working on my memoirs for far longer than I anticipated. Still, there is a reason for everything and I think the reason it has taken me so long to publish my story is because not only were there pieces that needed to be added to it that hadn't happened yet, but also because I needed time to come up with this groundbreaking idea to pay it forward to people in need. That's where you come in. 

I want to give thousands, if not hundreds of thousands of copies of my book away to those who need an inspirational story to read. There are so many people going through countless situations right now and because my story is a true story of survival I want to be able to give it away to those people for free. Of course, that means I need help printing these thousands of copies of my book to give away. My goal is to raise $5,000 for the first run of printing and I plan to use the money to print and ship the book to charities, hospitals, homeless shelters, schools and more so that people who need it most can see not only are they not alone, but that they can triumph through anything life throws at them. They just need a vision and a goal and proof that someone has done it before them.

I hope that you will take a moment and donate to this GoFundMe project so that I can pass my message on to those who need it most. Since I want this to be a two way street I have set up rewards that I would like to give people who donate.
