Bill & Giuliana Rancic
As an entrepreneur, Bill Rancic started several small businesses early in his career. He later went on to develop real estate, and opened and managed three restaurants in Chicago and Washington, D.C. Bill got his first big break in 2004 when he won the first season of NBC’s “The Apprentice.” Afterward, Bill was hired by The Trump Organization and took charge of the construction of the Trump International Hotel and Tower in Chicago. Bill went on to become a successful entrepreneur when he founded Cigars Around the World, a monthly online subscription-based retailer that became a multi-million dollar enterprise.
Bill has also authored several books, including the New York Times best-selling book “You’re Hired: How to Succeed in Business and Life.” Bill has also co-authored “I Do…Now What?” with his wife, Giuliana. The two met during an interview in 2004.
