Have you ever felt so distraught about your life that you had no other option than to don a sweatshirt, throw the hood up, cinch it tight, and lie on the floor and proceed to sob uncontrollably?

I call it The Hood of Despair. Try it out sometime! I highly recommend it. 🙃

My former client Tiffanie is well-acquainted with THOD, which is why I invited her to be this month’s “interview with a normal person” – I wanted her to share how she went from a real low point in life to being, and I quote, “happier than I thought it was possible to be.”

Listen in as Tiffanie and I get into:

Leave a comment below after you’ve listened to share how Tiffanie’s journey resonated with you!


Tiffanie has an unquenchable thirst for knowledge, a huge heart to help others, and an insatiable curiosity about the world around her, where she has already traveled over 30 states and 15 countries. At first glance, you would never guess that she is chainsaw certified, which allowed her to restore the habitat for a threatened species of ornate box turtle in Iowa and reopen a youth camp in Michigan. After completing over 1,700 hours of service helping communities with disaster relief and unmet needs, Tiffanie came home lost about what direction to go next. 

After stumbling upon the Passion Profile Quiz and listening to the Clarity on Fire podcast everyday, she sought out Rachel’s help to figure out what was next. After identifying the roadblocks in her path and the values that were important to her, Tiffanie finally figured out how to tie in her passion with her career and create a fulfilling life that is aligned with the Universe. She is in constant awe of the Universe’s plans and how they unfold – are you ready to trust the Universe too?

It’s almost time for our next round of coaching enrollment – that small window, a few times per year, when take on new coaching clients!

We’ll be accepting applications starting next Friday, September 16!

You’re the right person to work with us if:

🔥 You know that getting a better job (or partner, or more money, or whatever) isn’t going to turn you into a brand-new person…

🔥 BUT, you believe that becoming a brand-new version of yourself will get you a better career (or partner, or more money, or whatever).

🔥 And, you’re done with figuring things out on your own – If you knew how to solve all of your problems, you’d have done it already!

🔥 AND you want some serious accountability – an expert to guide you through the changes you need to make and make SURE it actually sticks.

If you’re nodding along, then check out all the details about 1:1 coaching here, so you’re ready when we open enrollment next Friday!
