Background & Testimonials




YOUR REAL SUCCESS is a program that was developed by a successful survivor of abandonment, abuse, and poverty. Rhonda Sciortino went from foster care to millionaire and has created this program to help others turn their worst adversities into the source of their greatest advantages. 

This curriculum has been delivered to transition-aged foster youth, pregnant and parenting young moms, ministry leaders, and to business owners. It has been the subject of focus groups that included thought leaders in the areas of child welfare/foster care, mental health, education, juvenile justice, domestic violence, substance abuse, and trafficking. 

Although YOUR REAL SUCCESS is not therapy, the process of discovering that you are not too broken, that it's not too late, that it is possible to succeed, not despite, but specifically because of what you've been through, can be therapeutic and positively transformative. 

YOUR REAL SUCCESS is open to anyone over 16 years of age who wants to find and fulfill the good purpose for his or her life. 

What participants say about YOUR REAL SUCCESS



“The program allowed me to see my potential, to set goals, and it gave me  tools and the ability to execute those goals. The program and the leaders helped build my self-esteem with encouragement and plans for my life. For the first time, I felt excitement about my future and purpose. The relationships I gained through this program have continued to flourish. Even now, years later, the women who mentored me then are life-long mentors, supporters and friends.” 

--Shantel Anderson, participant in the first pilot program

“There are a lot of women who want to take their message to the next level, but only a few will do what’s necessary to make it happen. The Your Real Success program is a time and resource investment that reaps rewards in areas of personal growth, relational growth, and career growth. If you are serious about becoming everything you were created to be and doing what you were perfectly matched to do, then Rhonda Sciortino is the person to give you the tools to take your message to the next level.”

“I absolutely recommend this program to everyone! This program isn’t just for people who want to write a book or tell their story, it’s for anyone who is interested in learning how to put their best foot forward! I am a Realtor and have such a passion for what I do, but didn’t realize why! My goal is to find everyone their “safe place” and I wouldn’t have realized that unless I went through this program with Rhonda. She has created such incredible success by mining her own lessons and has been given this gift to share! You are a walking “Brand”! When I realized that, it really made me think! Sign up for this event and you most definitely won’t regret it!! Thank you Rhonda, my mentor, my friend!”  

–Diana Bowen-Moshier, Realtor & Successful Survior

“I have so much I want to say about this experience!!! We were a small but mighty group of women. I am so blessed because of this circle of visionaries and leaders. I grew in knowledge, self-awareness, purpose and confidence. This retreat/conference truly impacted my message, brand and book. I experienced tremendous growth and improved self-confidence. I went through a career shift this year and Rhonda Sciortino’s coaching and curriculum provided much needed direction and support in articulating my own vision and purpose. The time was spent in meaningful dialogue and I appreciated the diversity and life experiences of the other other women in the group. Rhonda created a safe space where we could be open and authentic with one another (I have stayed connected with everyone!) This weekend helped me create a detailed plan to write my book. Rhonda’s feedback was refreshing and motivating. I learned specific strategies to propel my life’s goals forward. To learn more about my story, please visit Thank you Rhonda, for a life-changing experience and for modeling grace, empowerment and leadership!”

She created a place where a diverse group of women connected and learned from each other.

Thanks to Rhonda Sciortino I am close to achieving a life-long dream of becoming an author, and I will forever be grateful for this experience.”

"Knowing who you are and what message has been entrusted to you specifically, AND WHAT YOU’RE SUPPOSED TO DO WITH IT, can only enhance any life choice you chose to embrace. Conducted in a safe, nurturing atmosphere of friendship love and just plain fun, you’ll be asking if there is a follow up course. Everyone does. * Forever changed.”
