So Money - Episode 120

Bill Rancic

Winner, "The Apprentice" & Entrepreneur

Do you remember watching The Apprentice when it first aired on TV? Can you guess how many years ago that was? It was eleven years ago. It was an epic debut. It was the #1 new show of 2004.

I’m excited to say that we have the winner of that first season joining us on So Money today. Bill Rancic…a former cigar business owner turned Donald Trump apprentice is here to share some of his personal finance insights and ideas…Today Bill is busier than ever. He is one of the most sought after motivational speakers on the subject of entrepreneurship and business, sharing his entertaining lessons that vary from a pancake business he started with his grandmother at age 10 to his current multi-million dollar real estate enterprise in Chicago.

Highly engaged in charitable activities, Bill is about to complete his second trip to Haiti, building homes for victims of the earthquake.

A few takeaways from our time with Bill:

— The moment he realized he had what it took to become an entrepreneur…and it was long before Donald Trump hired him.

— Speaking of… What it’s like working for The Donald.

— His money mantra that he learned at a very young age growing up in the Midwest.
