Are you one of those people who loves to have their hands full? Or works best when feeling just a tad bit overstretched? Me too! That’s why I’m super excited to have Rachel Brenke on the show, the ultimate serial entrepreneur. She is an attorney, podcaster, business owner, speaker, mother of five and so much more. We chat about what motivates Rachel, how she gets it all done, and how you too can learn to continually put life before business.


What you’ll learn:

  • Rachel’s reasons for becoming an attorney and her reasons for sticking with it
  • How to keep life before business by “filling the big rocks” first
  • Work-life satisfaction vs work-life balance
  • How to balance your children and your law degree/business
  • The opportunities that are arising from the ever growing legal industry
  • How to niche down when building your business
  • Important principles for entrepreneurs to consider   
  • What an entrepreneurial day looks like, including both highs and lows
  • Rachel’s current entrepreneurial fears and challenges
  • The importance of being authentic


Best Advice for Finding Happiness:

“Building the gut instinct to feel like you should be where you are going to fulfill your purpose and not where everyone else wants you to be”
