About Rhonda: I am a Chicago native who attended Florida A&M University where I earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration and then went on to Pennsylvania State University for an MBA with Finance and Marketing focus. I began my career in IT consulting and then found my passion for sales with a telecommunications company. After 5 years in the Corporate arena, I found myself unfulfilled and with a desire to be my own boss. Knowing I wanted to be my own boss but not knowing the vehicle, I left my corporate job to begin some entrepreneurial endeavors. Several months and several failed attempts later; I was introduced to Warm Spirit in October 2001 in the midst of the post 9-11 job market. In 2001, Warm Spirit was only 2 years old with just 500 consultants in the entire country. I jumped at the opportunity to be affiliated with a start up company that catered to the needs of African American women. Not knowing at the time that this would be the vehicle to drive me to my entrepreneurial promise land, I began with one simple goal “Let’s make some extra money”. After 4 months as a part time Warm Spirit consultant, and loving every minute of it, I embarked on a journey to turn it into a full time business. For the next year, I spent countless hours working the business – selling, identifying new team members and networking to grow my customer and consultant base. After 1-½ years as a consultant, I was able to replace my corporate income and attain the position of Executive. Four months later, I surpassed my monthly corporate take home pay and reached the position of Director - the third highest in the company and held by only one other in the company at that time. In November of 2005, I promoted to National Vice President. This position is currently held by only six others. I attribute my Warm Spirit success to tireless dedication, focus and the belief that I could be one the success stories in the minefield of entrepreneurshi
