Who is she?
Sponsor & Business Expert
Author of Corporate Sponsorship in 3 Easy Steps
Founder of Sponsor Secrets Seminar
She Started Out Worse Than Broke
She was buried in debt and couldn’t find a way out of the poverty trap. But that’s not what really bothered her. It was that she was short and had frizzy hair to boot.
Escaping the Poverty Trap and Abusive Relationships
Starting her business got her out of the poverty trap and abusive relationships. She was on a mission to teach other people how to start and succeed in their own small businesses, so she created the Women’s Small Business Expo. She needed money and that’s when she discovered the awesome power of sponsors.
Sponsors and Media
Her sponsors include Microsoft, Dun & Bradstreet, Epson, Citibank, Fed Ex, American Airlines, Wells Fargo, Staples, Health Net, Marriott, Southwest Airlines, Wal Mart, Bank of America and IBM.
She has also been featured as an international sponsor expert on media including NBC, ABC, CBS, FOX Television, Los Angeles Times, Bloomberg, Forbes and Remarkable Women. She is the winner of the Rising Star and Caught in the Act of Excellence Awards.
Wealthy Bag Lady and Business Owner
One of her businesses was producing custom shopping bags and she became known as the “Wealthy Bag Lady”. She has over 20 years of experience as a small business owner and she is the only person to be featured in both Entrepreneur and Female Entrepreneur magazine in the same month.
Starting from the Kitchen Table
Working from her kitchen table with no experience, no audience, and no employees except for her cat, she got her first corporate sponsors, Bank of America, IBM and Wal Mart.
Fund Your Dreams with Sponsors
Everyone wanted to know how she got her sponsors, so she started Sponsor Concierge to help event producers, speakers, authors, show hosts, special projects, non-profits and influencers on how to fund their dreams.
Her signature event, Sponsor Secrets Seminar, is an intensive training where people get sponsor ready, create a custom sponsor action plan and meet the sponsors.
She’s still short with frizzy hair. Hey, some things you just can’t change.
