With his leadership at several companies, including Millennium Marketing, Subco Fresno, and Leading Edge Technology Strategies, Russell Rahm received Inc. Magazine’s Entrepreneurial Superstar Award for both 2011 and 2012. Russell Rahm’s Millennium Marketing (whose official name is Publishers Renewal Service Co.) has received a rating of A+ with Kansas City’s Better Business Bureau (BBB).

The Kansas City BBB has set up a specific program for local military service members and their families. Historically, this is a population that has been targeted by scammers. In 2012, for example, military families made over 67,000 complaints about scams and fraud. Scammers know that service members, especially young ones, have a steady government paycheck, and aim to find ways to redirect it into their own pockets. The BBB’s Military Line helps to protect this community through education and other tools.

The BBB provides outreach and online programs to educate military service members. Workshops include topics like buying a home or car, smart investment practices, and how to avoid scams and identity theft on the Internet.
