“When you're the face of your business, but you're a shy person - it's so hard to reconcile those two things,” Rachel Smith, Founder of Rachel’s List Unemployed & Afraid

    • Entrepreneurship

Multiple passions can mean multiple businesses – so how do you do it, and be able to pivot with each as they grow?

The answer could boil down to balancing both your professional and your personal growth efforts, but as always there’s more to the story.

In this episode you’ll hear from the incredibly warm Rachel Smith who is successfully building multiple businesses by ensuring her measures of success are relevant, and flexible.

She’s widely known as the founder of Rachel’s List a jobs board for freelancers, but as you’ll hear she has plenty more super engaging business feathers in her cap.

In the sharing of her business building story, where we really get into both the practical and the personal journey of it all, you’ll hear about:


Following a childhood interest into a lifelong career, and not being afraid to keep following its pivots
Working through the retrospective build of an accidental business as it grows
Some handy insights into pitching your writing to publications
How to effectively work with your team of freelancers and how it differs to on-books staff members
Experimenting in your small-business marketing to sometimes amusing outcomes
The role your confidence growth plays in your business approach
Monetizing multiple business streams at different stages
And the impact of podcasting in the marketing of your business and in nurturing new parts of yourself in the process

Business growth is equal parts professional and personal - we’re here for it all to inspire you to feel seen, supported, and excited to grow the business of your unique dreams.
