Anthonette Klinkerman on MomTV
Joining me November 3rd on MomTV is Anthonette Klinkerman, CEO – Chief Etiquette Officer of Courtesy Bootcamp™ . Courtesy Bootcamp™ is a powerful, but fun, reminder to mind your Ps and Qs and practice common courtesy, which actually leads to better business practices. Being the sole proprietor makes Anthonette keenly aware of the branding, bookkeeping, and marketing and does it all herself. She had experience with network marketing companies, and found herself wanting to do more educating as teaching remains her passion. Noting a distinct lack of cotillion or etiquette schools in today’s casual society, she hit on a one-of-a-kind idea; since everyone wants everything in “bootcamp”/one-hour formats these days, why not a manners/social skills bootcamp? Courtesy Bootcamp™ sessions provide a crash course in courtesy for employees, office managers, customer service reps, salespeople, regular people, organizations, service clubs, young adults, you name it.
In response to a request for a “take-away” from the meeting, Anthonette wrote a companion book, Courtesy Bootcamp™: a not-so-gentle reminder to live by The Golden Rule which was printed in September 2010. Audiences have responded with standing ovations for the pink camo-clad “Colonel”, though on occasion one or two have had to do push-ups for a cell phone accidentally left on during the seminar. Since its inception in February 2009, Courtesy Bootcamp™ has drilled over 35 clubs and businesses, and earned an assisted living facility a both a national award in human resources and a statewide recognition for an innovative new program. The city of Englewood (CO) also hired Courtesy Bootcamp™ for their fourth annual Summit for Professional Growth in October 2010, which was, this last year, recognized by the HARVARD Kennedy School for a Bright Ideas Award in government employee trainings. This summer, the CAPA (Colorado Activity Professionals Association) will be utilizing Courtesy Bootcamp as its endnote address.
Meet us in the Word of Mom MomTV chat room at 12pmET/9amPT and we can all get reintroduced to our P’s and Q’s!

In early February 2010, after spending an afternoon at a cooking show with friends and with the support of my incredible husband, Maria decided to try her hand at being a Pampered Chef Consultant, and absolutely fell in love! Her passion for her own business created a monster you could say… and Maria began chatting with fellow moms who were in the same position, working hard to maintain their families and bringing in extra income on their own terms! When she realized there was a lack of an outlet for all of them to showcase their talents, Maria decided to organize a trade show… what was the worst that could happen?
