Top 5 Ways to Attract Corporate Sponsors with Linda Hollander
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. She has also been on NBC, ABC, CBS, FOX Television, Bloomberg Radio, Forbes, and Remarkable Women.
She started out worse than broke. She was buried in debt and couldn’t find a way out of the poverty trap and abusive relationships. But that’s not what really bothered her. It was that she was short and had frizzy hair to boot.
She and her best friend, Sheryl Felice, used their girl-power to the max. They launched a packaging business that sells custom-printed shopping bags to leading-edge companies.
Despite her shyness, she devised a sales and marketing plan which made the fledgling business profitable in a very short amount of time. As revenues for the company increased every year, she met entrepreneurs, understood what motivates them and how she could increase their success. By the way, she is still short with frizzy hair. Hey, some things you just can’t change.
Disney, Cisco Systems, Mattel, Universal Studios, Nissan, Yamaha, Sony, Revlon, Dunn Edwards Paints, Sanyo, Avery Dennison, Columbia TriStar, CBS, City of Hope, Union Bank, ASCAP, Kaiser Permanente, IBM, Variety, Ocean Spray, Sears, and Infiniti are some of her sponsors and clients. Her passions are business, sponsorships, marketing, promotion, and packaging (she is a “Bag Lady”, after all).
