Precious Monèt on Propelling Pre Planning Management to the Top Amidst the Odds

Entrepreneurship is not a solitary pursuit. While ventures could be born from the mind of a single visionary, building it and turning it into a success would demand support. Unfortunately, as was the case of Precious Monèt, many people did not see her vision, and instead of assisting, they chose not to support her. Nevertheless, she now serves as the founder of Pre Planning Management and demonstrates on a daily basis that, on top of being relentless about one’s passion, aspirants also need to surround themselves with positive and reliable pillars.

Precious Monèt admires her parents’ commitment to impacting communities for the better, and ever since she was young, she had held on to the vision of becoming an entrepreneur whose power can be wielded for the benefit of others. Years down the road and after several letdowns, disappointments, and challenges, she takes credit for launching an industry standout.

Gaining acclaim for delivering its promise of quality business solutions, this brainchild of Precious Monèt takes pride in its dedication to building strong, long-lasting, professional relationships.

At Pre Planning Management, the individual goals of every client are prioritized.

Additionally, this emerging power player is known for the authenticity her brand provides in connecting one-on-one with people and connecting them with other highly capable professionals and instrumental resources. 

Currently, Pre Planning Management, which once started as an event management venture, has now evolved into a full-service management consulting company. It began because of the passion Precious Monèt has for people and will continue on its way to the top of the industry driven by the same fuel. 

Next month, this respected institution is set to launch a 2021 planner intended to help users visualize and manifest their purpose. Designed to help them track their goals and expenses, it will also incorporate motivational reminders and notes.

Fernando Bernardino Spills Secrets on Multidisciplinary Entrepreneurship

In only the span of a decade, Fernando Bernardino has gone from college dropout to a successful investor and entrepreneur. Born in Rio Piedras, Puerto Rico, to a humble family, Fernando is the father of a beautiful five-year-old girl and a brother to an active duty service member. The young CEO is known for his “work hard, play harder” mentality and his heart for the less fortunate.

Fernando Bernardino is the owner and operator of Stellar Media Group and Meraki events. Despite being a college dropout, Fernando earned his first million at the age of 23. This feat allowed him not only to provide for his family but also to care for the less fortunate. An avid car fan, he rewarded himself by buying his first exotic at the age of 25. Since then, he has owned and driven some of the world’s finest cars, ranging from the underrated GT-R to Bentley Continental GT Speeds to Lamborghinis, and even the highly regarded Rolls Royce family.

Fernando Bernardino first found his footing in the marketing industry in 2010 with Stellar Media Group, a company that focuses on handling internet marketing efforts for publicly traded companies — no small feat when you consider how much some of those companies are worth. As the owner and operator of Stellar, he has helped hundreds of companies raise millions in capital for operations, research and development, and more.

Since 2018, he has also owned and operated Meraki Events, a company that centers on techno concerts. Meraki is known as the first company in Central Florida to bring big-name techno Djs to the area outside of EDC. At first, agencies were standoffish when sending their big acts to the area because, at the time, it wasn’t known for having an underground scene. But that has all changed since Meraki started, and today, Orlando residents can enjoy the vibrant and rapidly growing techno scene. Meraki is also known for producing events with extended sets, something that Floridians had only been able to experience in Miami until they popped up on the scene.

Just this year, Fernando started on a new venture. After seeing the burgeoning need for people to grow their personal brand, he began to help others grow their social media presence and leverage their network to strike up new business opportunities — arguably one of the fastest-growing areas of social media. Fernando has connected with some of the heaviest hitters in the game, such as Chris Frederick, Alex Moeller, and others at WiFi Money. This venture has also allowed him to bring others in to build a substantial side hustle — some even earning $5,000 or more a month simply for sending DMs. Through this venture, Fernando Bernardino has helped people turn their personal brand from a following of a few thousand to well over 500,000 or more in several months’ time, allowing them to gain product placements and sponsorships as well as the opportunity for them to sell their courses, e-books, and more.

Always one to help others accomplish their goals and check off their bucket lists, Fernando is also involved in the luxury travel space, helping countless people save thousands on trips to some of the world’s most exclusive properties. His work has helped some to shift their quiet personal brand to that of a luxury personal brand, bringing in more business opportunities.

Because of his success, Fernando Bernardino has traveled the world to attend music festivals such as Burning Man, Time Warp, Awakenings, and more. The connections he has made in business have opened the doors to deep friendships, mentors, and people who he now considers family.

Fernando Bernardino firmly believes that the secret to his success is his genuineness and willingness to listen. While not every introduction turns into a lasting business relationship, while not every meeting turns into a deal, and while not every potential client is willing to spend money at that immediate moment, Fernando is known to always listen and help out with ideas and whatever else they may need because he understands that while not everything pays off in the now… it could always pay off later on.

Early on, he knew that he had one opportunity to do the right thing and deliver on his promises, and he has carried this mentality with him in all his transactions, whether in life or in business.

Podcast Squad Is the Solution to Booking Podcast Services in the Business and Entrepreneurship Niche

Every business needs recognition for growth. Business owners and entrepreneurs have taken advantage of the online platform to gain better social media presence through paid advertisements. Collin Castrina and Christopher Cox, the founders of Podcast Squad, have been helping them gain better exposure.

Castrina and Cox have worked in the market with entrepreneurs seeking to gain exposure, either for recognition for their business, building their personal brand, or even for a book launch. There are several ways to build social media presence, such as advertisements on social media sites or YouTube. One of the most popular platforms today is podcasts.

Whether it’s on apps like Spotify or other sites, podcasts are accessible and deliver their messages. However, Castrina and Cox noticed that some podcast booking services would project unrealistic standards paired with unreasonable pricing.

Before partnering with them, one of their clients reached out to all other podcast booking services in the space. While some never responded, one service took over seven months to deliver on their 20 podcast package promise. They were five months overdue.

Castrina and Cox were disgusted that these services claimed to be “the best” and founded Podcast Squad. They wanted to deliver the highest level of results for their clients without worrying about the project being completed on its target date.

Podcast Squad only accepts a limited number of clients. Unlike other podcast services, by having a highly exclusive clientele of established entrepreneurs, Podcast Squad can get their clients on high-quality podcasts and work closely with them to ensure the best delivery of results. 

Having such an exclusive clientele gives them the space they need to make their clients a top priority. It also allows them to book their clients on shows that align with the message and deliver much faster compared to other booking services.

Despite having limited slots for their clients, the prices that Podcast Squad offers is still less expensive than mainstream booking services. They boast better pricing and book clients on a high volume of shows that align with their message and brand. Castrina and Cox have full confidence in their company’s ability to fulfill their services. They also commit a money-back guarantee. 

Podcast Squad helps clients “Monetize Your Words, Image, and Influence.” They have proven to deliver much faster when speed is essential, for example, book launches. If their clients don’t prioritize speed, Castrina and Cox help spread them out over a longer duration.

Their team has built invaluable relationships with some of the entrepreneurship and business niche’s top podcasts, allowing them to service their clients on top tier podcasts. Without a massive social media following or relationships with the hosts, booking a top tier show can be challenging. Podcast Squad works exclusively with established entrepreneurs who may or may not have a social media following.

Podcast Squad is fast becoming an unstoppable force in the business and entrepreneurship niche. Castrina and Cox are targeting to become a household name in the podcast booking space. With their results being second to none, they are confident that their services will be exclusive to top-tier entrepreneurs within a few short years, Podcast Squad continues to grow to its fullest potential.

‘Millionaire Mindset With Dr. Velma Trayham’ Empowers Women to Rise Above Financially

Women have come a long way since establishing themselves as formidable forces in businesses and in the workplace, but there is still a lot left to do. Award-winning entrepreneur Dr. Velma Trayham stands at the helm with her TV show entitled ‘Millionaire Mindset with Dr. Velma Trayham.’

Velma is a sought-after empowerment specialist, revolutionary thinker, and transformational leader who has mentored thousands of women through her non-profit economic empowerment program, Millionaire Mastermind Academy. Besides monthly in-person economic empowerment events, Velma has also written a self-help, inspirational book entitled ‘When God Says Go,’ which has sold over 400,000 copies. 

Wanting to expand her reach further, Velma has branched to television, starring in her talk show to discuss the points in her program in Millionaire Mastermind Academy. “I launched this show to empower and inspire African American and minority women to rise above poverty through entrepreneurship,” Velma reveals. 

Through the educational talk show, Velma shares tools and insights for successful entrepreneurship and business empowerment. “The world needs practical insights and wisdom to help them get through these tough times and this is what my platform is all about,” she adds.

Velma’s desire to inspire other women, especially those from her community, comes from her true story of American success. Born in extreme poverty in Houston, Texas, Velma overcame the odds by changing a pessimistic mindset and leaving her hometown to follow God’s voice. 

She wasn’t successful right off the bat and had to deal with failing her first three businesses before getting close to where she is now. Reflecting on how difficult it was for her to shoulder on despite adversity, Velma realized the need to help other people overcome the same barriers that once stood in her way – as a person of African-American descent and as a woman.

“I am passionate about creating a blueprint for the next generation of leaders. I want to leave my children with inheritance. I want to create opportunities to change the world,” she shares of her mission of igniting hope and motivation into millions around the world. 

Velma’s talk show airs on the AIB TV Network every Friday.

This Business Author is Empowering Aspiring Business Professionals to Seize Opportunities and Build Their Dreams

Building one’s dream is a lifetime’s work, and more often than not, it is easier said than done. There are concrete steps, however, to succeed in building dreams such as those involved with business. And this know-how is exactly what business author Ashton Thomas wishes to impart to the world.

Business expertise is among the many skills proven to be learned and developed through time. This was the case for Ashton, who started his first business—a baseball and football card shop—when he was in high school. Although this was a short-lived venture, Ashton learned a lot of things during this experience, including the responsibilities held by a business decision-maker. 

Ashton was raised in the rural town of Alamosa, Colorado. He moved to Phoenix, Arizona in 1997, where he became a mentee for several prominent business leaders. In 2010, the entrepreneur began his active journey into the business world, and by 2018, he was the Managing Partner and Founding Member for four flourishing businesses in Arizona. These were A to Z Holdings Company LLC, A to Z Pack and Ship LLC, A to Z Security Services LLC, and A to Z Management Group.

Shortly after his success in several businesses, Ashton decided to write his first book, “Turning Ideas into Profits.” This was born out of his desire to impart his knowledge about starting a business and helping like-minded individuals to build their dreams. After spending countless hours and days writing in his favorite coffee shop—The Driftwood Coffee Co., the entrepreneur published the said book in November of 2019. “Turning Ideas into Profit” would be the first of many books he would set out to publish, revolving around topics of business and leadership. The self-help guide, which was designed for individuals who had zero knowledge about business but wanted to start one, became the go-to book for aspiring business owners across the country. Ashton’s second book called “The Power of Inspirational Leadership” tackles the differences made by a good leader, and is due to be published this year.

The entrepreneur is currently among the leading business management authorities in Arizona. He has contributed significantly to laying the foundation for upcoming generations of business figures in the area. Ashton does this through his work with various colleges and universities, providing mentorship and guidance to college students who are pursuing their business degrees. Aside from this, he wishes to continue sharing his knowledge in business with others through his books. Ashton himself is a product of mentorship and a good educational foundation; therefore, these are the doors he wishes to open for passionate individuals like him.

The business author hopes to inspire his readers and audiences to dream big and seize opportunities. To attain what one wants in life, one must strive to make it happen, he says. Visions cannot become a reality without being driven to build the future one wants. According to him, “Life is for the taking, but you can’t get it from the sidelines.”

The agency also took care of Johnny’s stunning website and internal processes to improve the way things flow within the artist’s operations.

Over and beyond his strategic prowess, Aleksandar is undeniably passionate about his craft. He finds joy and satisfaction in seeing his clients grow and succeed in levels they never imagined before. In all he does, his goal is to highlight the story of others. “Our story is to tell your story,” puts the branding expert most simply. “We are not happy unless the client is happy.”

This others-centric approach to business has brought Aleksandar tremendous results for his business and the business of people he works with.

He frequents highly exclusive events such as the 2020 NFL Honors and the 2018 NBA Finals.

With more and more opportunities to make money online through the rise of new technologies and digital services, Ryan looks to maximize his growth potential.
