Listen to the Episode

Thoughts from Rachel:

  • Be open to “loosening” up from implementing so many boundaries.

  • Don’t shoot down the things you “dis-like”.  Give it a try and see what comes out of it.

  • Everything you do and talk about, find a way to tie it back to your business.

  • Get clarity with where you are going with your business.  You cannot throw yourself on live social media if you do not have a strategy behind it.

  • Content is king!  Outline what you will talk about and be well prepared when posting to social media.

  • There are so many ways to be visible.  Whatever is your “thing”, stick with it.

  • It takes time, but it is so important to position yourself in business. 

  • If you are not so focused in on where you are going with your business, it can be a distraction.

  • Start small and build momentum.  Start TODAY!

  • You have to be ready to step into a bigger version of yourself.
