Recently Joel Comm named me one of the top 50 Social Media Influencers. And John Lee Dumas featured me on his podcast Entrepreneur on Fire. I’m currently working on publishing my first long form book after seeing the success of my Dear Mom Letters . I was featured on Huffington Post Live after my post To The Tired Mom went so rapidly viral that it was their top trending article for days.

how can I invite Rachel to speak at our event?
First, if you made it here I’m already super honored. One of my favorite things in the world to do is to share my heart and passion with others – whether it be in text or on the stage or sitting in a circle of peers. I know that choosing a speaker can be a bit challenging because you desire that deep power of connection – that ability to inspire, motivate, change lives, and give action steps – and the person on stage is a representation of your vision. Because of that, I’ve designed this page to make your decision easier – giving you a glimpse into who I am and how my desire is to create that powerful connection between words that inspire and those listening.
For the past eight years I’ve been blessed to have spoken to over one hundred live groups, to be the guest on numerous webinars and podcasts, to have been interviewed on various national media channels, and to create my own podcast Amplify. I consider public speaking an art and a gift – it’s an opportunity to change lives with words.
So from me to you, before you even read more, thank you for thinking of me. I appreciate it.
