Romona Creel- A Traveling Artist!

Atlanta, GA

“My husband and I are multi-faceted entrepreneurs with many irons in the fire — I am a Professional Organizer, life coach, writer, blogger, paid speaker, and travel photographer — and my husband is a graphic artist and web designer. We always have a ton of interesting projects going on that would give an intern great work and life experience. You might be hesitant about working for a couple of solopreneurs – but considering recent economic trends and the state of employment in this country, its highly likely that some of you will end up working for yourselves at some point in your career . . . Let me also say that I’ve had my fair share of pointless internships during my college days, and I want to make sure you get to work on meaningful projects – there will be no making of copies or fetching of coffee with me!”
