Templates for your Start-Up Speaking Business

"Start Where You Are. Use What You Have. Do What You Can." Arthur Ashe

Greetings Everyone,
I hope this post finds you well.
I wanted to reach out because lately, I have been working with women who are thinking about becoming speakers and starting businesses. I’ve noticed one key issue they’re struggling with is where to start.
I wanted to help, so I decided to create the Business Start-Up Tool Kit.
What it is NOT is legal advice. Even I have a lawyer for my corporation formation, a lawyer for my copyright needs, and a CPA who has been doing my accounting since 2009, because my business serves RI, MA, NY, VA, and D.C.
What it IS, however, are the documents I use in my business every day to attract, coach, and serve my clients.
I'm offering my business templates such as.... business plan outline, client intake form, coaching topic outline, blog editorial calendar, sample service agreement, sample contract, speaker flyer, sample tri-fold, workshop evaluation form, and even my speaker request form.
Having these documents (which can be freely edited and used immediately) would be helpful for anyone starting out resulting in time saved, earning revenue faster, being able to accept speaking engagements immediately, and helping to get those business ideas into a written plan.

YWCA Malden Takes a Stand Against Racism

YWCA Malden Takes a Stand
By: Natascha F. Saunders



Under the leadership of Peg Crowe, newly appointed acting Executive Director of the YWCA Malden taking a stand against racism has been a part of their mantra for years. Started in 2007, Stand Against Racism has been a signature campaign of the YWCA USA. Over 2000 organizations have joined to help raise awareness for racial justice and to dismantle institutional racism throughout local communities.

The YWCA Malden knows that being mindful of how implicit and unconscious bias can impact our everyday lives can be uncomfortable at times, but they know inaction and silence can deter many from achieving their highest form of success. Therefore, it is imperative that we all speak up and advocate whenever possible.

The campaign ran from April 26 – April 29, 2018, and the YWCA Malden asks that you support the social media activism of its teen members. The teen TASK Program led by Chris Murphy has successfully reached countless youth helping girls to develop self-esteem, confidence and tackle pertinent issues such as racism using creativity.

TASK teens had this to say, “At Malden High diversity means less racism.”

The YWCA Malden wants you to know that girls struggle with the effects of both sexism and racism, and have unique challenges including excessive school discipline, disproportionate trauma and violence, unequal educational opportunities, and the sexual abuse-to-prison pipeline.

As a trauma survivor, being raised in a home with domestic violence and having been called racial slurs, serving in this new role as Director of Teen Programs, I can attest to the need for the YWCA Malden to continue this work to push our girls forward despite their obstacles.

It is the hope of the YWCA Malden that if we join forces with members of our constituency and throughout the city of Malden who seek to understand the imperativeness in helping our youth grow as academicians, helping them to understand the value of civic discourse and peer-mentorship we can ensure our communities thrive in the 21st century.
