Today at a small business boot camp held at Lone Star College University Park, Sonia Clayton - President & CEO, had the honor to be the keynote speaker. She delivered "Clear Vision: 10 Steps to Avoid Procrastination," a motivating talk designed to help propel emerging businesses. Despite surviving pandemic shutdowns, the settling of industry 4.0, and dramatic economic drops, most small businesses are now contending with a new enemy called inflation. This last element of change seems to be distracting many entrepreneurs. These 10 steps session helps participants remain focus on their tasks.

Winston Churchill once said: "We make a living by the way we get, but we make a life by the way we give." Some amazing people like my friend Lizzette Diaz, live life helping others and given much. For all you do for the community, a big THANK YOU, Lizzette. Also a very special note of THANKS to Lone Star College-University Park Doctor Shah Ardalan, president, and their Instructional Dean of Arts and Humanities, Mr. Jonathan Anderson. I am so impressed with your ESOL program (English for Speakers of Other Languages).

"Sonia Clayton is an amazing keynote speaker with a remarkable life story full of optimism, courage, determination, kindness, and compassion. Her entrepreneurial acumen and story overcome poverty and emotional pain, illness, fear, failure, and tragedy. Her heart-bit-line is clearly described in the picks and valleys of her story. Sonia shares her message and lessons with vibrancy and energy, in a real and raw fashion, with great humor and openness. I have seen Sonia present in large and small audiences and in multi-lingual events, and without a doubt she is powerhouse keynote speaker." - Lizzette Diaz
