Bill Rancic


Several years after his introduction to America as Donald Trump's original Apprentice, Bill Rancic continues his commitment to entrepreneurship throughout the country. Today, he is building businesses, seizing opportunities and sharing his views on how to succeed in business and in life.

Currently, Rancic 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 also regularly appears in the Boardroom on NBC's primetime show "The Apprentice" and is the executive producer of "Airplane Repo," airing this summer on Discovery Channel. In addition, he is a frequent guest contributor on broadcast and cable television programs, offering viewers advice 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 abilities 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 New 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.

A budding entrepreneur at a young age, Rancic got his first taste of success by founding Cigars Around the World in a 400-square-foot studio apartment in Chicago.

Highly engaged in charitable activities, Rancic was recently named national spokesperson for Gradient Gives Back - a program awarding financial makeovers to deserving families during today's challenging economic climate. He is also an active board member for the Mercy Home for Boys and Girls.

Born and raised in Chicago, Rancic now lives in Los Angeles with his wife, "E! News" co-anchor/managing editor and "Fashion Police" co-host, Giuliana Rancic.
