About Renee Townsend

Renee Sitting on Steps

Welcome to Backbone America! I’m your host, Renee Townsend. Many of you have heard the phrase, “Do what you love and you’ll never have to work a day in your life.” When I became an advisor at a business development center, I found myself living that life.

In response to my day job as a business advisor, I started this website to further my reach and help entrepreneurs throughout the United States. I love helping entrepreneurs start their dreams. In a way, I live vicariously through their success.

After I received notice my company was closing doors, I struggled with the idea of working for another company and the possibility of not finding an opportunity to be involved with entrepreneurship. That’s when I decided to continue doing what I was doing at the business development center, but as my own boss.

A little about my credentials. I have a BS in Business with an emphasis in Information Systems, a MS in Psychology, and I’ve gone through a certified coaching program that was accredited by the International Coach Federation.

I started designing websites as a personal hobby and found I had a knack for it. My personal hobby allowed me to develop and manage websites in my day job, as well as put on website creation workshops. When it comes to website design, I have to say I enjoy creating them almost as much as developing financial projections.

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