Bill Rancic first burst onto the scene when he was chosen as Donald Trump’s right-hand man out of a competitive pool of 250,000 applicants on the first season of The Apprentice. Raised in the suburbs of Chicago, Rancic is an example of a true entrepreneur. After graduating cum laude from Loyala University, he founded cigarsaroundtheworld.com, now a thriving multimillion-dollar national operation.
Today he is one of the world’s most extraordinary, respected, and in-demand entrepreneurs. Rancic has worked for and been personally mentored by Donald Trump for years and has traveled with Mr. Trump across the US and internationally. He is developing real estate in Chicago, producing and appearing in several television programs, and speaking to businesses and organizations on motivational and business topics.
Rancic makes regular appearances on numerous programs including Today, The Tonight Show, The View, and various CNBC programs to talk to viewers about business and entrepreneurship. A published author, he wrote Beyond the Lemonade Stand to help educate and motivate young people worldwide about the value of money and how to leverage skills, talents, and ability at an early age. All proceeds from the sale of this book have gone to charity. Beyond the Lemonade Stand is the follow up to the ew York Times best-selling book You’re Hired: How to Succeed in Business and Life from the Winner of ‘The Apprentice,’ which chronicled Rancic’s successful life, experience, and proven advice.
Along with his wife Giuliana Rancic, he is currently in production as the host for the new NBC dating series called Ready for Love, produced by Eva Longoria. The series is set to premiere in early 2013. Together, Giuliana and Bill Rancic charm millions of viewers each week on their reality show Giuliana & Bill. They have also co-authored the book I Do, Now What?, a must read for newlyweds, those about to take the plunge, or anyone who wants to know the secrets of everlasting love.
