Pro Vending & Sales Training Since 1984
My history living 18 years in Africa and Europe began when my father expatriated our family from our birthplace in Michigan.
Inspired by a vision to help eradicate poverty, I left University in France to start the Inspirit Arts cottage craft industry in Africa. This social enterprise raised funds for children’s causes in Kenya and Eswatini by making, and training volunteers of women’s organizations to be vendors.
VILLAGE TO VILLAGE MOVEMENT
My greatest gift to the world so far, was starting the now thriving rolled paper movement by going from village to village, in one African country after another, to teach destitute villagers in drought stricken areas how to upcycle paper into jewelry.
Returning stateside to Ohio in 1995, I ran after school youth programs, while studying full time, and traveling the world to source handmade fashion to sell in my pop-up vendor booth.
VILLAGE TO VENDOR MOVEMENT
I've retired from vending to devote myself towards building 'The Vendor to Vendor Pipeline'. The two divisions are a Pop-Up Vendor Academy and a Wholesale Village eStore'.
This platform is full of products, courses and resources specifically for organizations to use in support of promoting their own products and service through a sales team of well trained pop-up event vendors.
Now, I'm open to travel for in person workshops and even relocating to open training centers in collaboration with branch partners and others.

This membership learning community and distribution network offers wholesale products, sales training courses and free resources to pop-up event vendors. There are two divisions:
The Village To Vendor Academy offers a unique specialized selling method for vendors to generate major revenue with 'cash cow' businesses through promoting their own products and services at festivals, trade shows, marketplaces and special events. Join here.
The Village to Vendor eStore gives vendors access to highly profitable fair trade handmade fashion accessories in wholesale packages that are imported from crafters living in remote villages worldwide. What the poorest people in the world need most is customers. Join here.
