Meet Rachel Rodgers, a 41-year-old African American mom and CEO who rose from financial struggles and became the first millionaire in her family. She is now the owner of her company and an award-winning author who inspires others to pursue their path to multimillionaire success.
“Teetering on the edge of poverty was a scary way to live, so when I became a parent, I was determined to end the cycle,” she told CNBC.
Starting from humble beginnings, Rodgers hustled through various jobs, from serving state and federal judges to working with nonprofits and even Hillary Clinton. In 2010, she ventured into specializing in intellectual property law for small businesses. As clients sought more than legal advice, her practice transformed into a coaching business, hitting seven figures in 2017.
