“There is no royal flower-strewn path to success. Only the one I create for myself.” (Madam C.J. Walker)
To quote Spotlight’s Marilee Sonneman, CMP, DMCP: “Find your purpose. Follow your passion. Forge your path.” We at Spotlight Sojourns embrace the journey, and have completed the transformation to Spotlight Sojourns’ strategic consulting, from Spotlight Events’ full-service event and destination management company. With Spotlight Sojourns, founders Paul Kostadimas and Marilee Sonneman welcome the opportunity to “shine the spotlight” ever brighter on clients’ success.
Strolling through San Francisco’s Union Square recently, Paul and Marilee glimpsed inspiration on wallpaper in a boutique under renovation. Paul quickly snapped a shot (seen here) right before the wallpaper was removed.
The quote is from legendary Madam C.J. Walker (born Sarah Breedlove, 1867-1919), African-American entrepreneur, beauty innovator, self-made millionaire, activist, and philanthropist. The premium hair-care line Madam C.J. Walker Beauty Culture, launched by her great-great granddaughter, is now carried by SEPHORA.
Madam C.J. Walker’s words and her story resonate for us, and perhaps for you, too, in forging on. Forward, ever forward.
Per aspera ad astra.
