Ronnie F. Lee

Ronnie F. Lee was born to a German mother who married an African-American man, and raised in between the United States and Germany. Even though both of Ronnie’s parents worked and his father was a noncommissioned officer in the Army, he still felt the stress of a paycheck-to-paycheck environment. He felt the discomfort of many cheese and mayo sandwiches six days before payday, and the disappointment of a dinner made up of mayo sandwiches without the cheese four days before payday. The anger that comes with hunger when your father tells you to eat air-biscuits the night before payday. The joy of the first meal after payday, which is usually the family dining out. Ronnie recalls his father sitting down and showing him $900 that he received as an advance payment for the reassignment to a new duty station. He was mesmerized by the nine $100 bills and thought his family was just $100 short of being rich. His parents taught him a lot about economics. The lessons came through examples of what not to do, more so than by guidance and examples of what to do.

Ronnie F. Lee is truly a chapter out of the American dream. Born to a German mother who married an African-American man, who was enlisted in the Army, and raised in between the United States and Germany.

Ronnie built a career after the military in the music industry. Managing himself as a functional illiterate in a foreign country, Ronnie worked hard, took advantage of opportunities that were presented, and created some opportunities out of thin air. Understanding the simple rules of supply and demand, the laws of what goes up must come down and clearly understanding what is needed and what is wanted, Ronnie returned to the United States at the age of 32 with a net worth of $25,000. Since then, he has founded several small businesses, purchased a series of homes in the Las Vegas valley, placed his kids in private schools, and became a millionaire on two separate occasions.
