*From living on the streets of Baltimore in her youth to obtaining a Stanford PhD to becoming a self-made millionaire, Dr. Venus Opal Reese—aka “Dr. Venus”—is nationally renowned for sharing how she became empowered to “monetized her messy” life, that was a byproduct of the historically dysfunctional legacy that plagues what she calls the “financial DNA” of too many Black women—especially entrepreneurs and career professionals.
In a wide-ranging conversation, Dr. Venus and Mo’Kelly discussed her beginnings, her pain and how now travels the work helping others find the power inside themselves, despite their circumstances.
Her latest book is “The Raw Truth: A Pimp Daughter’s Story” and she’s traveling the nation in support of it. This conversation was featured as part of “The Mo’Kelly Show” KFI AM640 Los Angeles and iHeartRadio.
