Rachel speaks to the reader as a friend, sister and mentor. The words are at once open and honest, as she lays out key mindsets, actions and skills that are needed to help you reach your full potential. Whether you dream of becoming a CEO, a hairdresser, an event planner or mom of the year, the book is full of insights ready to help you soar. 

“I believe deeply in what you’re capable of. I think you can achieve anything you set your mind to, but you’ve got to set your mind to it. You’ve got to be relentless in your pursuit and flexible in your methods.”

Each of us has a dream for our lives, a vision of what we hope to become. Rachel makes it clear that negative self-talk or mindsets that put thoughts like “I don’t have time” or “I’m terrified of failure” on repeat must be laid to rest. To move forward, these mindsets have to go. The vision will never transition from our minds to reality if we allow our thoughts to stifle the very breath they need to come to life.

It’s one thing to have a hope or a dream, it’s another to truly make it happen. Every dream must be backed with actions. Rachel offers seven key behaviors to help get you on the path to success. She explores behaviors like embracing ambition and building the foundation for success. As each behavior is discussed, she continues to keep the conversation real with stories from her own journey that are laced with humor and wit. 

“Who you are is defined by the next decision you make, not the last one. 
So get planning, make a roadmap, and take your next step.”

When you’re ready to change the world, you’ve got to have the skills to back it up. After tackling food blogging, the event planning world, lifestyle and more recently speaking and writing for business and motivation, Rachel knows a thing or two about key skills you should have in your toolbox.
