Rhonda Jordan is a graduate of Marquette University and a former CPA that spent 15 years in corporate America. During her time in corporate America she watched the Fortune 500 company that she worked for go through numerous personnel cutbacks. She grew tired of the corporate uncertainty and decided that she wanted to become her own boss and take control of her destiny.

As a result, she started her own business in 1996 and has never looked back. Today she is an entrepreneur, speaker and coach that trains and develops thousands of people on an annual basis throughout North America. Rhonda runs a successful home based business that operates in 35 states and Canada. She enjoys helping people start their own businesses and step into their purpose. Rhonda is married and she and her husband Walter reside in Atlanta, GA.
