Woman-owned Marketing Agency Partners with NFTE to Highlight Student Entrepreneurs
Mentors Students on Branding & Marketing in Honor of National Mentoring Month
By: K-Will Communications, LLC
“We are a company that truly believes in the youth.” states Taylor Simon, founder and CEO of Divine Desires. As a leading provider of branding and marketing services for celebrities and entertainers, the company has been increasing its influence within the industry and DFW metro-area over the past five years. The alliance with NFTE is a testament to its commitment to giving back and pouring into the youth of its community.
NFTE’s mission is to provide programs that inspire young people from low-income communities to stay in school, recognize business opportunities and plan for successful futures. In partnership with school districts in Dallas and Irving, the organization trains teachers to engage students from low-income communities as entrepreneurial thinkers. Using an innovative, hands-on curriculum, NFTE North Texas has provided more than 11,000 students with the tools and mindset necessary to overcome adversity, and prepare for successful futures in school, college and the workforce.
Simon spoke to some of the NFTE classes at Woodrow Wilson High School in Dallas last week [VIDEO LINK ENCLOSED BELOW], and will highlight two NFTE graduates at an upcoming event later on this week. Titled, The BRAND NEW YOU Business Brunch, the event will feature a number of celebrity guests and speakers, including Celebrity Fashion Stylist J. Bolin; Monica Sowell of T.D. Jakes Ministries and The Potter's House of Dallas; Taylor Simon of Divine Desires and Celebrity Chef Felicia Guimont. Geared toward equipping entrepreneurs and business leaders with results-oriented branding techniques for the new year, the event will take place on Jan. 30, at the Mira Vista Country Club in Fort Worth from 11 a.m - 3 p.m.
The NFTE graduates will assist Simon in one of the event workshops, and have the opportunity to present information about their businesses to the event attendees. Their participation also includes a complete VIP experience with preferred seating, a custom branding kit that includes a new logo, business cards and social media elements, headshot photos and a certificate of completion for the ‘BRAND NEW YOU Business Brunch’, just before the event ends. They will also receive exclusive, monthly coaching sessions with Simon for three months.
“We feel honored to be working with an organization so strongly committed to not only telling kids to pursue their dreams, but actually teaching them how.” states Simon. “It almost makes me tear up, but in all honesty, I believe the children inspire me more than I inspire them.” she concludes.
