My name is Raquel M. R. Thomas and I am the CEO of thriving and growing businesses. I am also a published author. I have owned or currently own daycare centers, clothing stores, and a janitorial business. I believe in building and diversifying my portfolio hence I invest in the stock market and into real estate. In the last two years I have focused on my non-profit organization and teaching. I am also a public speaker who speaks on multiple topics that surround entrepreneurship, leadership, shifting into purpose, and empowerment.
I received my Bachelors of Science in Business Marketing and my Masters of Business Administration. To accompany my educational background, I have a corporate background of 9 years in the automotive industry consulting with franchise owners assisting them with growing their multi-million dollars businesses.
I am a Columbia, SC native who decided as a young child, despite my challenges of foster care and abuse I would achieve my goals and change lives. I am passionate about community outreach that helps our youth in impoverished neighborhoods to achieve their goals. I work with our youth and communities daily incorporating entrepreneurship camps and trainings.
