1 Girl Revolution

Jun 24, 2022

Rhonda Sciortino is a survivor, successful business woman, author, speaker, and founder of the Successful Survivors Foundation. Rhonda joins the 1 Girl Revolution Podcast this week to share her inspiring life story and how she turned her survivor story into a story of success and purpose - and now how she’s helping other survivors find their purpose. 

Rhonda was abandoned as a very young child and became a ward of the court until she emancipated at the age of 16. Except for a brief time with a great foster family, her first 16 years were spent with her abusive grandparents – her grandfather was mentally ill and her grandmother was an alcoholic and drug-addicted. 

At 15 years old, Rhonda decided to seek emancipation. One of the prerequisites was that Rhonda had to have a job, so she went to work for the first person who would hire her–an insurance agent. Rhonda worked hard and was finally emancipated at the age of 17 and that same year, she became California’s youngest licensed insurance agent.

Rhonda has had an incredibly successful career in insurance and throughout her career, she has dedicated her life to supporting people and organizations that protect children. In 2008, Rhonda left her career to serve as the chairperson of Successful Survivors Foundation, a non-profit organization she founded to help survivors of trauma find purpose, meaning, and happiness, what she calls, "your real success."

This episode of the podcast is so inspiring. In this episode, you’ll hear:

  • Rhonda’s life story, including being abandoned as a baby and surviving abuse;
  • How she fought to be emancipated at a young age and then found success;
  • About her successful career in insurance and how she went from survival to having a multi-million dollar career;
  • The story of why she decided to start Successful Survivors Foundation and how she’s now helping other survivors find their purpose and success;
  • And so much more.
