Coming up this Saturday at 1pm on Finding Your Bliss, Life Coach and Bliss Expert Judy Librach is joined by Samantha Tradelius!
Samantha is a mother, wife, philanthropist and entrepreneur. She is fast-moving and a supporter of all things SHE.
A born go-getter from early on, Samantha always knew she was destined to do big things. Armed with her brokerage licence and natural gift for being a connector, Samantha began her entrepreneurial journey by co-founding Commercial Coverage Insurance Agency (CCIA) alongside her husband. From humble beginnings, the pair quickly turned CCIA into a wildly successful business, valued at an impressive eight figures.
Following her success with CCIA, Samantha knew it was time to lean into a passion that had inspired her from a very young age. Having never stopped thinking about the stories her grandmother and hero, GG, would tell her about raising three children as a single mom in the 1950s. Samantha always noticed that in all her stories, her grandmother never mentioned anyone helping her…or asking for help. She knew her grandmother had done everything she could to rub her nickels together to make everything possible for her children.
Inspired by this story, Samantha wanted to utilize her skills as a self-starter and born networker to create a non-profit that provided the much-valued support that many single mothers need. Not one to waste any time,
Samantha got straight into establishing The Sparkle Foundation, a non-profit dedicated to helping single women throughout the Bay Area, the Inland Empire, and the Cities of Los Angeles and Sacramento.
In just a few short years, The Sparkle Foundation has seen an unprecedented amount of success, thanks to Samantha’s sheer determination and passion for giving back to her local community. The Sparkle Foundation supports single mothers and children with an array of initiatives, including enrichment scholarships for children, a Christmas holiday gift drive and a back-to-school backpack drive.
In addition to The Sparkle Foundation, Samantha established SparkleBiz, which provides micro-loans for female-owned small businesses, and access to a large, connected network. Since its founding in 2016, The Sparkle Foundation has raised more than $1 million—with every dollar reinvested in the community.
Not one to stop there, Samantha wrote and self-published a book, Impact: Stories of Change Makers, Creators, and Everyday Women Doing Extraordinary Work and she is also the host of a growing weekly podcast; InspiHER’d.
Samantha’s mission to support and uplift women shine through every project she takes on!
