How it Started

I had no idea That Everyday people Had access to Corporate Sponsorship...

Before I got into the world of corporate sponsorships, I thought they were solely for athletes and established non profits that hosted programs with thousands of people in attendance. I had no idea there was another world of booking the same (or more) money for things like intimate workshops, conferences, live events and virtual experiences. If you would’ve told me that the world existed years before, I probably would’ve let out a huge belly laugh.

So I dived into the Sponsorship world and made a lot of Mistakes...

Years ago, I decided to dive in as a complete newbie, not knowing anything besides what I Googled. Little did I know, I was doing so many things wrong. Leaving money on the table countless times. Not having the right contacts. No clue about my numbers. And don’t even mention negotiation! 

That's when I figured out a formula to Consistently Win Sponsorships...

Although I was hosting amazing sold out events, I was funding everything out of pocket and even used student loan money to host my first conference. Eventually, I figured out a formula and booked over six-figures in corporate sponsorships for my annual conference! I developed a pitching system, and it’s the gift that keeps on giving. My pitching method has only gotten sweeter with time.
