Sponsorship Opportunity

The opportunities for sponsorship are wide open as I begin to speak professionally. In the past, I trained, presented and facilitated workshops as a part of my "service" component as a faculty member. Now, I have decided to train and speak on a full-time basis. There is opportunity for service, retail/fashion, health/wellness, and publishing sponsorships.
