Marlo Richardson is a visionary leader in the world of business. She is the founder and CEO of five companies in the Los Angeles area. As a significant player in the LA business scene, she has a natural intuition when it comes to understanding the community around her. Realizing the need for financial literacy and business mentoring, she established Business Bullish.
Business Bullish is a free comprehensive resource that discusses pertinent real-life issues surrounding business and finance. Geared toward people looking for insight into starting a business and investments, the site explores relevant topics such as monetizing hobbies, money-saving techniques, and steps to take to achieve financial freedom.
“What I have essentially done as a business is to give free information and advice to people that have always wanted to invest. I actually show them what I do and have done through the platform of my podcast and blog. I use the platform for the blog and podcast to generate money through paid advertisements to give free, needed information,” she said.
Marlo Richardson was motivated to establish Business Bullish after seeing a lack of people genuinely helping others to save and invest. She has made her name as a dynamic leader and groundbreaking business professional in several industries. As a Black businesswoman, she is a regular disrupter, often carrying the title “first African American woman” to gain an achievement. Marlo is an accomplished keynote speaker and business advisor, and she is often invited to speak with local business groups and universities regarding her personal story and experiences in the business world.
As a young girl, Marlo knew that she wanted to help others in her community when she grew up. She was able to accomplish this through roles within charitable organizations, law enforcement, and politics. As an adult, Marlo Richardson quickly learned that she also had a love for the finer things in life. However, she knew that she wouldn’t be able to achieve the lifestyle she wanted working a typical 9-to-5 office job, even with a generous six-figure salary. Her desire for the finer things in life was what made it easy for her to fall in love with the idea of entrepreneurship. Knowing that she could do something that she enjoyed, created, could potentially generate wealth which made entrepreneurship the perfect fit for her.
Marlo Richardson has since owned business franchises, restaurants, a home health care agency, a real estate investment company, an insurance agency, a retail clothing company, a travel agency, a security company, a production company, a distribution company, a manufacturing company, and a marketing company. She has also created several successful brands.
Her success has led to her widespread recognition within her community. In 2015, Marlo Richardson was appointed by Governor Jerry Brown to be a part of the Contractors’ State License Board, and she was reappointed in 2016. In 2018, she was unanimously selected to be the board chair.
Now, she has taken those skills and has used them to consult with other business entities and individuals to continue to create opportunities for others. As founder and CEO of several companies, Marlo Richardson has helped develop workshops and programs that have transformed the lives of men and women and altered their course of business opportunities.
In the future, she hopes to see Business Bullish upgrade into a world-renown resource for everyone who is looking to free themselves from financial hardships and into financial freedom.
