I TEACH CURIOUS ENTREPRENEURS WHO FEEL LIKE THE MISFIT OF THEIR INDUSTRY, HOW TO GROW THEIR BUSINESS ONLINE—WITHOUT FEELING GROSS.
“I have spent thousands of dollars on Marie Forleo’s B-School, Hey Sweet Pea’s Thriving on IG course, and countless other books and programs and nothing even comes close to the value I have received in the last 3 months of working with you” -Anneke
I was working with an influencer who had over 200k followers, she was barely making $1000 a month, which as you can imagine was a complete shock to me. As we sat over facetime talking about her writing, going over her posts, and offers— I noticed one important thing that she needed to be doing, but wasn’t.
She was writing at her audience with some typical fitspo motivation of sorts. Which looked something like this:
When you’re writing a post on IG, are you writing to validate yourself in the industry, or to add value to your readers lives?
Maybe he’s just not that into you, and that’s the end of the story.
Maybe what felt like a moment to you, wasn’t a moment to him.
Maybe, when your brain did that thing where it lit up and envisioned your life together after only two dates—he realized that it was actually a no for him.
I sat in the bleachers timidly, middle school made me nervous. Scanning a sea of thirteen year olds my eyes fell upon him. I don’t think he saw me, and I’m glad he didn’t. Surely if he would have talked to me in that moment I would have forgotten how to use words. For the first time in my life my body was electrified. I had to know him. As if it was my last breath I grabbed my bestfriend and asked “who is that?”. That’s *Thomas, she said.
One tour date left, and it just so happened to be in LA. There wasn’t much thinking here. I’m spontaneous, and when it feels right in my gut, I 99.9% of the time say yes.
I booked my flight for the next week. Stalked Airbnbs and bought my ticket to the concert.

The first time I told a woman she was beautiful felt like the most honestl truth that’s ever left my mouth. I feel like I’m having a Kristen Stewart moment right now. So I guess I’m like, really fucking gay?
3 years ago when I broke up with dieting my biggest focus with my body was beginning to feel normal around food. In this initial phase I kind of stopped taking as great internal care of my body. I wasn't eating a lot of veggies, conscious of taking vitamins or supplementing with things I was deficient in. I was 100000% okay with this because healing my mind was of the most importance to me.

You know that scene in Shrek where he’s like ogres are like onions? My dad use to say the same thing about boys.
“Boys are like onions, Rachel. You have to peel back the layers and keep peeling them back to really get to know someone”.
