"Blogging became a profitable business when companies realized that my opinion and voice carried influence to consumers. The same consumers that influence 80 percent of auto sales and $90 billion of the consumer electronic purchases since 2007. I’ve consulted businesses on marketing to the new millennia female consumer and have even worked with brands like Ford, General Motors, Samsung, Verizon to highlight and share what’s important to women like me." - See more at: MadameNoire.com
