    "The Passive Income Entrepreneur: Teaching entrepreneurs how to use the Internet in creative ways to grow their business and make more money!"

    Montina is the author of the frequently #1 Business & Investing International Best-Sellers YouTube Video Marketing Secrets Revealed: The Beginners Guide to Online Video Marketing and HOW TO MAKE MONEY ONLINE: How to Grow a Passive Income in 20 Simple Steps.

    Montina "Sparkwisdom" Portis began her journey in 2009 on YouTube and quickly grew her channel to thousands of subscribers and over 1 million views in a short period of time. She went on to grow a podcast to thousands of listeners and interview the likes of Pat Flynn and Eric "ET" Thomas. She leveraged the power of social media to build her first business to six figures while working full-time as an Information Security Analyst with a a Fortune 500 company. In 2013 she replaced her income and in 2014 retired. She is now a full-time entrepreneur.

    Montina is a national video marketing coach and best selling author of "YouTube Video Marketing Secrets Revealed: The Beginners Guide to Online Video Marketing", "HOW TO MAKE MONEY ONLINE: How to Grow a Passive Income in 20 Simple Steps" and "The Jump Is the Story: 30 Days to Greater Faith."

    Montina is no stranger to hard work and sacrifice. Abandoned by her mother at 18 months, shipped to live with an aunt at 12 and living from house to house at 16 and living in the YWCA and later a homeless shelter in her late teens she was determined to beat the odds. She passed the test to earn her General Education Diploma (G.E.D.) and by the age of 30, had built her first home, finished her Master's degree and had already helped hundreds of individuals create a blueprint for success in their lives.

    She now lives in Atlanta, GA with her husband, Daniel Portis , a Web Developer, and three children Lera, Dominique and Mansir. She made over six-figures in her first business while she worked full-time for the largest Information Technology company in the United States.

    For years she struggled to find out if it was really possible to generate a passive income online. Then in 2014 she discovered a way and in just 10 months replaced her corporate income and this year retired from my full-time job! She is on a mission to help full and part-entrepreneurs convert their time into profits and make money online! Will you be one?
