I’m Renee Townsend, Business Coach/Consultant for entrepreneurs who want to create the successful business of their dreams.

I’m a serial entrepreneur, who’s been dabbling in entrepreneurship since 1996. However, it was my position as a business advisor at a Small Business Development Center that spurred me to open Backbone America. I love helping other entrepreneurs run the businesses of their dreams.

I’ve helped over 100 entrepreneurs who are where you are right now. Together, we’ve navigated the forms, started companies, created jobs, and injected $1.15 million dollars into business startup and expansion projects to give them the foundation they need for financial security. Above all, we’ve created a roadmap for their future success.

As a coach, I help my clients reach their aspirations in a way that is consistent with their values and beliefs. I help them uncover the issues which are holding them back from achieving their goals and help them turn their focus on fulfilling their true desires.

As a consultant, I act as a research partner, helping businesses connect the dots. My consulting services are based on my experiences working with clients and putting them in touch with the resources to move them forward.

My Mission

To increase the number of successful businesses owned by Women through coaching and consulting.

My Vision

To see an America that provides equal opportunities to all entrepreneurs.
