Born in Oxford, England and growing up in the midland county of Shropshire, Andrew Wood immigrated to America in 1980 to pursue a career as a professional golfer. Unfortunately, lack of talent held him back and he accidentally found himself running a small karate school in Southern California. After struggling to survive for 18 months as a school owner he decided to focus all his attention on marketing. This focus soon paid off and he increased his income to six figures while still in his twenties. His initial interest in marketing turned into a passion and he quickly turned the single school into a national franchise of 156 schools and over 250 associates. He also founded Martial Arts Business Magazine and the Masters Club.
After selling out of the business in 2,000 he moved to Florida where he founded Legendary Marketing, a business designed to combine his passion for golf and travel with his marketing expertise. Legendary quickly built a name for itself in the golf industry with innovative websites, social media, and online campaigns. Over the last decade, Wood has worked with over 3000 golf clubs, resorts and real estate developments as well as a host of other businesses in over fifty countries.
His clients include companies in the USA, Canada, England, Scotland, Ireland, France, Spain, Russia, the Caribbean, and Morocco to name just a few.
