Celebrating National Women’s History Month
by Rochelle Soetan
Defiant. Bold. Resilient. Audacious. Daring. Courageous. Tenacious. Purposeful. Relentless. Fierce. These are the words that describe every – single – successful woman who has ever gone against the status quo, against all odds, and against the grain of popular belief. And these are the resolute words that best describe Dr. Venus Opal Reese, The Black Women Millionaires Mentor™, game changer, trailblazer, acclaimed international speaker, CEO Mindset, Messaging and Marketing Mentor and defiant CEO of Defy Impossible, Inc.
From the rigid streets of Baltimore to the diverse culture in California, Venus Opal Reese transformed her life from a systematic statistic to a doctor of discerning defiance. At age 16, living amid violence, drugs and prostitution, the predictable outcome was welfare, addiction, and ultimately death. Now, a seven-figure Stanford PhD, Dr. Venus has turned her survival into a system that fast-tracked her business, Defy Impossible, Inc., to a calculated gross of $4 million in just five years after launching. Her clients have generated over $8 million in revenue using her proven programs, systems and strategies.
Strong but subtle, audacious yet aware, Dr. Venus is a leading example of what can be made of anyone who wants more for themselves and their future. Her story is powerfully inspiring. Her gifts are uniquely her own. From living on the streets and eating out of trashcans to obtaining two master’s degrees and a Ph.D. from Stanford University (in 13 years), Dr. Venus knows what it takes to break through inner glass ceilings that limit performance. She teaches purpose-driven, high-achieving Black Women professionals, entrepreneurs, experts and executives how to defy their impossible to break the million-dollar mark—on their own terms – and it is on her terms that she is raising the bar on how black women see themselves and their relationship with money and success.

Through her initiatives like New Money Now Blueprint http://newmoneynowblueprint.com/ she helps people everywhere discover exactly what they are doing wrong that keeps them slaving, stuck and stalled. Her success-proven strategies educate on the three hidden drivers that must be mastered in order to have lasting impact on the world, the ONE thing Black women must give up in order to become a millionaire, and most crucial of all, the #1 secret to fast-tracking it to 7-figure success. Her hands-on, no-frills workshop is filled with practical and actionable steps that teach the ABC’s of rewiring the business mindset. Six Figure Emancipation Formula
