About the speaker

“One theme has remained consistent throughout my career: I rely on my best ideas for work.”

Rebecca Thomas is a veteran entrepreneur, expert problem-solver and writer of useful things. Her entrepreneurial career began at twenty-four with a small real estate firm. In 2005 she opened a retail wine bar which has grown into a 150 seat restaurant (kybecca.com).

Her experience in building a restaurant from the ground up, sustaining it and evolving the business to meet a changing marketplace has enabled her to understand how important it is to set your enterprise up correctly from the get-go. Structure sets success.

She has developed real estate for specific use both in residential and commercial, worked with cities to secure incentives, scouted locations, created a concept and brought it to fruition. In 2016 she began consulting to select clients to help them access the mentorship and clarity that made such a difference throughout her own career.

Rebecca is also a freelance writer who maintains a weekly email blog on the subject of what makes a good life. She believes understanding yourself and learning to train your mind to interpret other people’s actions, the systems we live in, and our true motivations lead to a more satisfying life. Her work centers on the idea that the examination of the self is a worthwhile endeavor that can contribute a greater good to society at large.

Rebecca moved to Richmond in 2014 to have more access to culture and the arts. She is a passionate pedestrian who has made it a point to walk the whole city. You can find her enjoying the many public trails, sampling yummy things and relishing in her own good life.
