Hello BBWO,


I love that Bruno Mars’ song lyric, “I want to be a billionaire so freakin’ bad…”


Do you know it?


Well, before you can be a billionaire, you have to be a millionaire.


Okay… so… how do you do THAT?


Especially if you are a Black Woman who KNOWS she can—someone who is doing ALL the right things, but doesn’t know how to move from good to great, or from great to millionaire?


What if being a Black Woman millionaire were something you could LEARN?


What if you could actually listen to and learn from Black Women in business, education, corporate contracts, technology, sales, speaking, writing, media, and other areas who have already cracked the millionaire code?


(Read enough? Grab your seat here: YOUR


I will go further.


What if you could learn from them at no cost to you in three days, as if you were chatting with your best girlfriend under the dryer at the beauty shop or sipping a glass of white wine in a drawing-room salon in the 1920s?


Sounds nice, right?


Well, look no further. My dear friend and peer, Dr. Venus Opal Reese, has created a revolutionary event that is intimate, quaint, and tailored just for YOU!


In case you haven’t heard, Dr. Venus is known as the “Defy Impossible” expert.


This sister went from being a 16-year-old street urchin to Stanford PhD, and turned her survival into a business-building system that’s made $3 million for her clients in two years!


Dr. Venus knows what it takes to break through inner glass ceilings that limit performance and, by extension, your profit. She is passionate about making sure other sisters know how to monetize their worth into a seven-figure business.


She has gathered 12 Black Women millionaires who pull the curtain back and let their hair down to give you their proven INNER secrets on what it REALLY takes to make millions.

Dr. Venus Opal Reese Presents…

Black Women Millionaires Virtual Salon

Inner Secrets from Seven-Figure Sisters so YOU Can Live Your Worth OUT LOUD!

March 5–7, 2014


This 3-day training will change the trajectory of your life! Register now.


Dr. Venus has the uncanny ability to create a safe space for powerful Black Women to open up and tell the good, the bad, and the ugly of being a seven-figure sister.


Here is a sneak peek!


During this virtual salon, you will discover:

  • How “working hard” has NOTHING to do with becoming a Black Woman millionaire. (I know. I was surprised too! Wait until you hear the #1 thing you simply must do if you want to break the seven-figure mark! Priceless.)
  • Specific ways that our sister “millionaires in the making” have actually undermined their ability to break the seven-figure ceiling. (This is real talk! These brilliant and brave sisters tell it all!)
  • Authentic truths about how being a Black Woman millionaire is a very distinct experience—and accomplishment—that is rooted in the history of hurts we have inherited.


(Check out all 12 Black Women millionaires sharing their secrets during this transformational and proven training here:


As a super-successful Black Woman, you are special.


You and I have a specific history we have to navigate internally and externally on a daily basis. The history of hurts we have inherited is robbing us of our emotional and economic freedom.


If you are serious about breaking the seven-figure mark in your business, wouldn’t it be great to learn from sisters who WANT to pour into YOU the knowledge and wisdom they have learned in the real world?


To be frank, you will NEVER get this kind of candor and access from the “country club in-crowd” millionaires—so why spend good money on bad advice?


Invest the time to learn from sisters who are authentically committed to your success.


In fact, when you sign up for this revolutionary event, you will receive an exclusive interview from world-renowned speaker, six-time best-selling author, and featured teacher in the self-development movie and phenomenon, The Secret, Lisa Nichols.


(Your destiny is calling. You would be nuts to miss this training. Click now!


Join us. And think of it this way, on the road to being a billionaire—if Oprah can do it, so can you—cracking the code on your first million is a requisite. So do yourself a favor: learn from sisters who already have…

PS: Pay it forward! Think of two sister friends you know who would benefit from learning Black Women millionaires’ inner secrets to success and forward this email now. (


PPS: Even if you have heard Lisa Nichols speak before—or any of our seven-figure sisters—you haven’t heard THIS. Dr. Venus made it her business to ask the REAL questions! You will be SHOCKED by some of the answers. This is private stuff that you simply will not get ANYWHERE ELSE! Get access now. (

Today, there are authors of every stripe, from those in time-honored fiction and non-fiction categories to business people and professionals who've learned that writing a quality book is essential to building their brand.

In 2012, Americans self-published more than 391,000 books, according to market research giant Bowker. That's a 400 percent increase since 2007. Also in 2012, traditional publishers released nearly 302,000 titles for a whopping total of nearly 700,000 new books. In one year! With the glut of new books being released each year, promoting just one can feel like a mission impossible.

But just as publishing has democratized, so has getting publicity. Yes, we still have gatekeepers - editors, producers, etc. - guarding access to traditional media, and yes, it's still important to get their attention. But now we have social media to help us do that. With hard work, the right message and some marketing savvy, anyone can potentially build a following large enough for those gatekeepers and their audiences to take notice.

Looking for media attention for your book? Here are three steps to market your book better than before:

  • Establish an online presence and following - ideally long before you've written your book. In the old days, authors crisscrossed the country, their car trunks weighed down with books. They arranged book signings at shops and events in an exhausting effort to get in front of as many potential readers as possible. While some authors still do this, it's a big investment that doesn't offer much in return unless you have a recognizable name. Establishing an online presence with a high-quality website and regular postings on social media is a much more efficient and effective way of connecting with potential readers/buyers.
  • Build a platform that will create a built-in audience for your book. Whether you're a business leader with a book or a fiction author, it's essential that you regularly provide fresh, engaging content to an audience. This is how you build a platform which, as the name suggests, puts you on a stage so others - including the media - can see you. Many writers do this by penning a blog on their website. Some writers host an Internet radio show; professionals using their book as a marketing tool may pay a radio station for a weekly time slot. If you live in a community with public access television, you can even host your own TV show.
  • Form strategic alliances with other authors. Don't think of all of those other authors as the competition; rather, look at them as potential allies. Find authors who appeal to much the same audience as you and who have large followings, and join forces. Just as social media users help one another gain visibility by "liking" posts or "retweeting" tweets, you and your fellow authors can increase exposure for one another. Promote each other on social networks; guest-post on one another's blogs, or participate on their radio and TV shows.

On the one hand, it's wonderful that anyone with a message to share in the form of a book can now do so. Gone are the days of pinning all your dreams on some faceless editor in a New York high-rise.

But as with anything, greater accessibility leads to bigger crowds. If you want to stand out, you'll have to plan a sustained marketing campaign. If your book is a tool to build your business brand, don't worry so much about sales; it will pay for itself in establishing you as an authoritative expert in your industry.

If you hope to establish yourself as a fiction or non-fiction author, plan for long-term marketing even as you get to work on your next book.

Hey ACTIONista!


Calling all my game changers, history makers, movers and's time to make your big ideas happen!

What's the big deal with... creating an online presence that wins you clients, cash and compliments instead of robbing you of your time, money and freedom?

You're a blessing waiting to happen for someone! But, your big ideas are useless if they aren't reaching the people who need it.

So, what's keeping you from being a blessing? Technology? Confusing marketing strategies? Limited reach?

Building a  business online, that makes money and meaning, is not as easy as it used to be. Many of the strategies and tools that turned on the money faucet 5 years or even a year ago either no longer work or aren't as powerful.

The fact is, if you don't commit to building a solid foundation, you will blow with the winds of different marketing trends, and never taste the sweet fruit of sustained results.


That's why I am happy to announce my 1st...

When it comes to branding, many people think big brand advertising: Apple, Starbucks and Nike - it's often thought of in terms of companies spending, but dollars, however in the small and independent industry, building a personal brand is just as important for survival. 

Surprisingly,  personal branding is one of those things that is extremely crucial to success in a small industry, but ironically often overlooked.

Listed below are 4 Benefits of building a personal brand in a targeted niche. 

1. Become the Expertise in Your Niche 

Once you've been marketing for a while, producing valuable blog posts, videos, and other content,  before a potential client/prospect even contacts you they will have already been to your website, and all of your social media pages. 

Because information sis so readily available, they'll already have an opinion about you, good or bad, what the potential client/prospect believes depends on how well you've developed you personal brand. 

In other words, your brand can have a huge impact on your conversions, so make sure you  build strong and packed full of value.

PRESS Release - Sacramento, CA February 10, 2014

Go For More in 2014!

It’s a sad fact that 50% of resolutions are given up on by February. You can change that.Whether you’re at the beginning of the year or mid year you’ve got to have a plan and move away from traditional resolutions to intentions and commitments attached to effecting goal setting and achievement.

Life is a gift, and it offers us the privilege, opportunity, and responsibility to give something back by becoming more. Tony Robbins

It all begins with a decision. God’s gift to you is life and what you do with it is your gift back to Him. Go for more in 2014!

“Before working with Robin in the Make it Happen 30 days of Empowerment Coaching program, I was looking for a coach that could provide some guidance and directions with the goals that I wanted to achieve. After working with Robin I got more clarity on how to break down my goals and focus on the areas that I could strengthen. Then I could identify the areas that I needed to work on more in depth and now I have more confidence in pursuing the goals that I have set for bringing my Vision to reality. Robin has a great positive attitude and knows how to work with her clients to help them achieve maximum results. Thanks for all you do Robin and may God continue to Bless you and the GREAT work you do.” Monique Spence

Whether you want to improve your finances, health, life, relationships, spiritual growth, business or other you owe it to yourself to set aside time to design, create and manifest your ultimate “authentic” lifestyle now!

Are you frustrated with your goal setting endeavors?

Are you dealing with broken focus?

Maybe you’re a Christian woman in business, coach, author or speaker with a great vision but don’t know where to begin with planning and/or how to market your business via online marketing or social media.

Whatever the case may be it’s important that you know that having an overall ‪goal‬ or ‪clarity of vision‬ is vital to ‪success‬.

Is there really any benefit to setting goals?

Setting goals is a very significant part of success and positive accomplishments. People who set goals literally create a map of their target achievements in life, marking where they should begin, where to pause, where to delve a bit, and where and when to stop. Once this map is created, it allows the map drawer to check where he is in the scheme of things and whether or not he is making some achievements that will take him closer to his goals.

All great achievers have goals. You need to know exactly what you are working towards!

Robin Tramble has opened up Free Access to her Dreams Alive Now 30 Day Vision and goals Challenge. Get started here:
