L. Renee richardson

CEO

Known as the Billionaire Visionnaire™, L. Renee served as a top Media Director at one of the world’s largest advertising and communications companies in the world (1989-2008) leading powerful teams in corporate America for 20 years. She managed $1 billion in advertising for Fortune 100 clients including Disney Theme Parks, Procter and Gamble, General Mills, Pillsbury, McDonald’s, Hallmark, Kraft, Amoco, the Army, and Allstate to name a few.

She left corporate America in 2008 to live the American Dream of business ownership with her Miracle Man hubby, Glen. She and her Miracle Man hubby Glen invested $500,000 and opened an ice cream franchise store on Michigan Avenue for six years (2006-2012). It was visited by Mayor Richard Daley and other famous celebrities. The store generated over $1.0 million in sales, served 1.2 million multi-cultural ice cream lovers and employed and changed the lives of 100 inner city young people.

She was a keynote speaker in the U.S. and in Europe (Paris and London). L. Renee has spoken for the Ultimate Women’s Expo, International Christian Women’s Conference, American Ad Federation, Northwestern’s Medill School of Management, National Urban League, Women’s Business Development Center, the City of Chicago, Black Enterprise Women of Power Summit, National Association of Minorities in Media and a host of churches and organizations.

In January 20/20, L. Renee launched the I am Worth It Foundation, a global initiative to raise $4.0 billion dollars to educate, empower and enlighten women worldwide. There are 4.0 billion women on the planet. The purpose of the I am Worth it Co. Foundation (www.womenareworthit.com) is to raise $1 dollar for every woman and young lady on the planet. Women are priceless. Yet society tends to portray us as small and insignificant.  $1 for every woman is a small investment in our future success,” says L. Renee.

She is the author of several books including Discover the Wealth that is in Your House, The Widow Oil Tycoon: Ten Keys to Turn Your Pot of Oil into an Oil Field (available on Kindle and Amazon) and Wealth and Riches are in My House. These books will be translated into Hindu.

She has a B.B.A. from Columbus State University and an MBA from the University of Georgia.
