Rachel gets to the point

Rachel has great content and I love that she is respectful of the listener’s time by keeping things short and to the point.

Real talk about the most important conversations we have

The conversations we have with ourself is often the most influential conversation we can have. Rachel does an amazing job of calling us out to change the conversation from unhealthy to healthy. My favorite episode is the one on negative self talk. Rachel is also an amazing host. Enjoyed our conversation. What an honor to be on a podcast I really enjoy listening to.

Ann Hince ,
