Do you have “special needs?”

Dr. Venus went from living on the streets at 16 to earning a Masters Degree and PhD at Stanford to owning a multi 7-figure business where she made $5 million in her first 6 years. Which is quite the #GFR journey, however today’s interview is focused on what Dr. Venus is doing now that she’s dismantled the empire she built, along with ending her marriage and liquidating all her assets.

Listen as Dr. Venus shares the series of GFRMoments that convinced her to burn everything down at once in one of the rawest and realest* episodes we’ve ever done. We also get into what she’s learned about owning her PTSD and advocating for her special needs that empowered her to rise from the ashes with a tech company specifically built to empower and advocate for other black women.

*Note! When we say “one of the rawest and realest,” we mean it. You might wanna listen to this one when the kids aren’t around.
