About REAL Women
REAL Women is a membership-based community of women interested in extraordinary growth and development. REAL Women’s mission is to create safe spaces for women to do REAL personal development work on themselves. We help women CONNECT with other women in meaningful ways; grow their CONFIDENCE in who they are and what they are created to do; and become CATALYSTS of positive change in their lives and the lives of those around them. REAL Women accomplishes this by hosting live and virtual Sister Circles, Intensives, Bootcamps, and other incredible experiences.
Who are we?
REAL Women started in 2013 when Dr. Trenace Richardson simply grew tired of pretending that all was well when it wasn’t. The mask she was wearing to appear healthy and whole became worn and tattered. She needed a safe space to be transparent so that she could finally become her best self and stop dimming her own light. She wanted this for other women too. Out of this desire, REAL Women was born! In 2017 REAL Women became a membership-based community with the support of 67 founding members.
REAL Women seeks to create a safe space for women to do REAL work on themselves.
“Dr. Trenace Richardson is the REAL DEAL! What I love about her mission is her gentle yet strong, confident yet humble presence among women. A dynamic and engaging speaker, she has mastered the skill of keeping women committed to the evolutionary process of transformation through sisterhood and service. Every woman needs a community of REAL WOMEN like this!”
Vikki Johnson, Soul Wealth Academy Founder
“There has been a need for a platform such as REAL Women for a long time. We, as women, most often keep too much of what bothers us internally. We are fearful, ashamed, embarrassed, distressed, and even more. We think that if we take the “mask off” it will in someway demean us. REAL Women has even helped me find ME. The women around you become so vested in what’s happening to them that they can relax and be themselves.”
“Real Women, Real Conversations, Real Thought Provoking. Real women is the place to be for you to have honest and open discussion without fear of judgement. Dr. Richardson is an anointed woman of God who has a heart to reach women where they really are. Her sessions are not church as usual. You walk feeling uplifted, knowing that other women have experienced your issues. She is engaging, fun, and transparent. If you are ready to “Keep it 100,” her sessions are a must. Every time I am able to attend I leave revived. I have attended a lot of conferences, retreats, Bible studies, and church services, I don’t remember most of them. I remember each and every session that I have attended with Dr. Richardson! I think that says it all!”
I recently attended a REAL WOMEN sister circle. The facilitator Trenace Richardon was masterful in the manner in which she set the tone of the sister circle with her transparency and spiritual wisdom. Her “cabinet” of women were supportive, sharing, and very talented. It was my first but certainly, not my last sister circle. The love, openness, sincerity, truth, and honesty were REAL. Seldom does a group of ladies of varying ages experience such a connection of respect and, yes, spirituality in such a short period of time. I left the group more aware of myself and the roles I have found myself playing that I no longer will play. I advise all ladies who are looking for a safe place to work on themselves and remove their “masks” and truly respect who they are to become a part of a RW sister circle.
