I had the pleasure of sitting down with Rebecca Contreras. We talked about her struggles and how she overcame insurmountable odds to achieve the success she has today.

Rebecca Contreras had been a “lost girl” for almost two decades when, at age 19, she found herself to be a dropout and a welfare-dependent teenage mother. Her new book, Lost Girl recounts her journey from getting off welfare to eventually advising President George W. Bush. After serving in government for 15 years, and cutting her teeth in consulting for ten years, Rebecca is now the owner of AvantGarde, which currently has 100+ employees nationwide.
