A self-paced program that won't only help you secure the bag in brand collaborations, consistently be on-demand with repeat brand partners, but also learn how to build your business of influence like the CEO you are meant to be!
You've built a huge momentum just by being yourself and sharing your story on the internet.
Your audience is going gaga over anything you post because you're so relatable, they see themselves in you and you're everyone's BFF. You've gained clarity over your personal brand. HAY, I SEE YOU.
Heck, maybe, you've caught the attention of some brands and you've accepted a collab here and there, and you're thinking ... oh em gee, I've made it!
But you still feel that something is missing.
The influencer gig you thought was gonna change your life is starting to feel like a rat race. You're still stuck at that dreadful 9-to-5 and you find yourself scrolling past (I'm sorry...comparing yourself to) influencers announcing their "I QUIT MY JOB" posts on your feed & asking yourself:
When is this ever gonna happen for me?
You're a small creator & you don't know when is the right time to start getting paid or how to get started working with brands
You don't know which brands are even legit to work with & you're constantly getting scammed
You're burnt out over too many collabs that don't pay well because all you know about rates is what the brand offers you & what the internet says
You are reaching out to brands, but you are getting ZERO's or NO's & you're already getting discouraged
You are getting plenty of gifted (or affiliate) offers, but don't know how to ask to be paid
Influencing & creating content is your side gig, but you still don't know the things you need to be mindful of to be in business for yourself
with your favorite brands, or even the brands you grew up using
and find actual pitches from brands who want to pay you real money (not the pennies you've been offered)
because you know where to draw the line and you don't give discounts because you're Gucci
who trusts you with their pain points and you create solutions for them that you can monetize
you drag your feet to every day
because you make more money than what your job is willing to pay you
and customize the life you've always wanted because you know how to leverage your skills for profit, when to take risks, where to invest and create the biz of your dreams
It's time to check those limiting beliefs at the door. Because we're about to create a business of influence that is all yours.
And trust me... you don't even need 10,000 followers.

But you were hoping to be making a full-time career out of it by now, and you’re still not confident you can leave that 9-to-5 that’s draining you. You don’t know how other influencers you follow are landing collabs you know you’d be perfect for. The brands you thought would pay you the big bucks are offering you basically nothing as compensation. They’re making you take their max offer because it’s what they’ve paid everyone and you feel like you don’t have a choice but to take it.
It doesn’t have to be that way anymore.
Be your 100% authentic self and create impact in people’s lives that makes a difference that’s contagious (instead of constantly holding yourself back because your employer controls your salary and your future in the company)
Align your life with your purpose, attract the right community, and therefore, attract the brands (and customers) who will pay for your time and expertise
Find yourself saying NO to brands who use gaslighting as a manipulation tactic to devalue your worth
Have scheduled naps in the middle of the day without anyone policing where you spend your hours on
Add an additional income stream that will allow you to reach some financial goals (maybe debt, a new car, or a downpayment for a house…reach for the stars, babe!)
Take time off to travel whenever you want and have the choice to extend your stay because a long weekend isn’t enough time to enjoy your time
There’s no such thing as the perfect time. But there is such a thing as regret. Don’t wait 10 years to go by and tell yourself “I missed out”. Life is too short to never manifest a dream.
I'm an online educator, lifestyle content creator and microinfluencer based in Los Angeles with an audience of over 120,000 across the world wide web. I'm also a talent agent over at Boost Society, where I help influencers negotiate their collaborations. I love helping creators, bloggers and influencers to not only monetize their influence online, but also create impact that drives change and have a fully-realized influential business.
I've been influencing since 2012, and for most of my career, I absolutely had no idea what I was doing.
I didn't know what I was worth, and I thought I needed over 50,000 followers to turn this gig into a career. So I treated it like a hobby and stayed with my engineering job.
But just like every run-of-the-mill story you've probably heard, the more I got promoted and led the multimillion-dollar projects of my dreams, the more miserable I became working in the corporate world.
So I gave myself 2 years to diversify and create new streams of income, and influencing sparked my exit strategy.
I came back to Instagram with new intentions and purpose: I wanted to help others live a life of purpose and create real, deep impact in the world. But the comeback wasn't easy at all.
There was A LOT OF LEARNING AND UNLEARNING involved. But I knew that if I really wanted to make my timeline work, I had to stop treating my influencer career like a hobby and start working it like a business.
I had every intention in juggling my 9-to-5 and my side biz until I can just live off my business income. BUT COVID HAPPENED, and my company laid me off in September of 2020. So I had no choice but to dive in and take more risks.
i've brought in $165,000+ in brand partnerships as a microinfluencer, and have helped my clients and students secure $1 million+ in the last 2 years. i've also managed to create 3 additional income streams, and added 10 people to my team sharing everything I've learned over the last ten years!
With all the years of trial and error, and my student-like mentality to find solutions for influencers' pain points, I've developed a program that will give you the tools to duplicate these results.
I'm passionate about sharing everything that I've learned over the last 10 years in the influencer industry, and I honestly just want to be one thing for you: that person I wish I had when I first started. So there's no fluff in the way I teach, which I hope you will come to appreciate.
In the last 4 years..
Retire from my structural engineering and project management career at 31... FOR GOOD.
Replace my 6-figure income and hit continuous $20-30k months by diversifying my income streams.
and collaborations with brands like 7 For All Mankind, Amazon, eBay, Disney, Dunkin, the MLB, OLLY, Target, Teachable, Sephora and more!
It's one thing to accomplish this for myself, it's a different ballgame when you duplicate your results for others.
I've helped my students and clients secure partnerships with

When you join The SponMaster, you'll get immediate lifetime access to our exclusive Members-Only Facebook Group, filled with dreamers like you.
It's bad enough that there are people around you who don't get the big picture of you wanting to pursue being an influencer. Now you'll have a supportive community where you can ask me or your classmates for real-time help, share your struggles and come up with solutions together!

No. Although Naomi is knowledgeable in growing on social media, this program will solely help you monetize on social media through brand partnerships, as well as teach you how to set up your influencer business properly, which is just as important if you want to play the long game.
The SponMaster is designed to be taken at your own pace, but the modules will be dripped over 14 days to ensure you take action as you work your way through the course.
Yes! While Naomi’s experience is US-based, all of the strategies you’ll learn in the course are applicable to wherever you are located. We also have a handful of Canadian guest teachers doing bonus masterclasses! If you are outside the US/Canada region, we will make sure you feel well-equipped.
The SponMaster course will teach you how to charge and work with brands for Instagram, TikTok and YouTube.
Not at all! This course is for every creator, blogger or influencer on every level of their career, because guess what? Follower count isn't the only metric that matters when pricing your work and services. Plus, you get to learn about other ways you can monetize your value online. Remember: you don't need to be amazing to start, but you need to start to be amazing.
You don’t need to have ever landed a paid brand collab in order to enroll in the SponMaster. Naomi has designed this course for every creator, blogger or influencer at every stage in their career.
The SponMaster is designed to teach you how to reach out to brands on your own and how to get connected to them (aka find the right contact that handles brand partnerships).
If you have follow-up questions from the course, or need personalized guidance, you have access to our members-only Facebook group where we will constantly be checking in to answer questions or clarify anything from the course. You will also have access to my monthly live Q&A's where you can ask Naomi for help in real time.
We’re absolutely confident that you will learn a lot from The SponMaster and create results for yourself, just like how Naomi has helped her students and clients. However, after helping hundreds of influencers and creators create proven results through our programs, we no longer offer refunds. We are confident that the strategies inside The SponMaster WORK (if you do!).
Please make sure you are 100% committed before enrolling. We are happy to answer any questions you have to make sure our offers are the right fit for you beforehand! You can read our policy here.
