Once upon a time, Dr. Venus was a walking statistic. She was living on the “mean” streets of Baltimore by the age of 16 amid violence, drugs, and prostitution. The predictable outcome was welfare, addiction, and ultimately death. Amazingly, 14 years later she graduated with a second master’s degree and a Ph.D. from Stanford University. Dr. Venus has turned her survival into a system that fast-tracked her to $4 million in less than 5 years. Her clients have generated over 7 million in revenue using her PROVEN programs, systems and strategies.
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.
