Hey, I'm Raquel - I empower women and most importantly I love being a coach for women! I want women to take action to feel better about themselves, I'm sick of diet challenges, I'm sick of the body image dysmorphia, the starving-yourself-culture for the "gram", the 6-week programs that only let you down, and coaches who don't care about you but just want a buck.

    I’m taking all of December off dating apps.
    I’m calling it Dating App Free December.
    I also don’t find the true value in it, I want to trust the timing of life. Not force something because I feel like I might miss out.
    I will also tell you my 6 reflections of what I want you to let go of before 2022, a sneak peek of the first 3 below... if you like those, the last 3 you will love!
