Women of Impact

Aug 28, 2019

Having pop culture icons as parents is a blessing, but it also creates incredible pressure and imposes some pretty limiting expectations. As daughter of Motown musicians Diana Ross and Berry Gordy, Rhonda Ross might be the leading expert on those sorts of blessings and pressures. On today’s episode of Women of Impact with Lisa Bilyeu, Rhonda Ross discusses how she learned to find her true voice amidst everyone’s expectations, why she welcomes criticism, and why she has learned to remind herself always, in good times and bad, that nothing is permanent.
