Spiritpreneur School with Maureen Aladin! Making Impact in Media & Entertainment.


Hey Sacred Bombshell,

I know that many members of the Sacred Bombshell tribe have questions about either making it in media or entertainment or how to use film, TV, and celebrity as a part of your self-launch strategy.

The AWESOME guest teacher TODAY on my Spiritpreneur School video podcast is Maureen Aladin. Maureen is the Creative Director and Executive Producer for TWELVE18 Media, Inc. The NY/LA based company is a full service production company specializing in creating broadcast, digital, and exclusive branded content, including social media consultation.

I e-met Maureen a couple of years ago when she created a powerful PSA about African American children and natural hair. If you want to use your videos to make a difference, then you want in on this convo.

xoxo, Abiola
