We had the good fortune of connecting with Rachelle Love and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Rachelle, Let’s talk about principles and values – what matters to you most?
Today, I’m am grateful for all the corporate experience, I gained along the way. 25 years working in various positions has indeed prepared me for entrepreneurship.
The principle that mattered most to me, was always operate with integrity. Treat others as I would like to be treated. Live my life without excuse or regret. Learn to love myself ❤️
In the late 80’s I was working for several brokerage firms, many of them are now defunct. After, being laid-off too many times to mention. I finally prayed for an avenue of self-employment something that I was passionate about, something no one could take away! There was a creative side that was truly awakened!
Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
My life has taken several turns, due to the economy from the late 80s until now.
I have over 25 years experience working in several industries, from Financial Services including working with several Brokerages Houses, to Big 5 Accounting Firms to Legal Marketing, Business Development, all while working my part-time gig (Event Planning) on the side.
I earned my Bachelors in Science, and Masters in Business Administration. After several lay-offs, I finally took my corporate experience and my skill-set, and started applying them to my own business. You must take action, to achieve any level of success.
It’s not an easy task, making the leap from W2 – to self-employment, it really takes faith, discipline, commitment and a true #blueprint and confidence within yourself.
There will be many starts, and fails, but remember, the most important fact, is to fail-forward. Learning this term, will assist you in understanding life’s lessons to master the unexpected and fulfill your purpose and you’ll be back on your feet!
