The fact that Beverly and Steve Smirnis live, work and play together is what first inspires some of their followers.
Since they first became a couple, the Smirnis team has enjoyed travel, food and wine. Their backgrounds in public relations, marketing and journalism led to published freelance articles, which earned them invitations to explore, taste and toast across the country and across the world.
Their career path together started with public relations projects. They specialized in working with the winemaking industry and representing various fine artists. This later expanded into a niche magazine publishing career, which has been their focus now for a few decades.
Key contacts and keen insights were built over their long history in print media. In the consumer world, this translates to luxury lifestyle, and in the homebuilding industry they have long served, they are privy to resources, design trends and best practices.
Identified as influencers about a decade ago, the automotive industry was one of the first to identify the Smirnis team’s unique ability to influence specific key audiences Their automotive test drives started with “Trucks & Toys” for the builder market and later expanded to include ultra-luxury vehicles targeted to the “one-percenters” who religiously read their private consumer publications.
Their journey as life journalists continues here. Beverly Smirnis realized a long-time passion a few years ago with the co-publishing of her first book. And she realized it again with the publishing of its sequel. Now, as she and Steve together seek to further expand into the world of books and movie scripts, they share these experiences and resources here as well. Get to know the characters in their books and you will uncover some characteristics of the authors and others they have met along the way through their diverse and varied life experiences.
The “channels” here on The Savvy List are designed to share their journey in pursuit of telling the various storylines presented here. Our hope is to inspire you, too, to relentlessly pursue your own passions in life.
