Neither of us have much time these days running the business together (mainly because Rach is a new client generating machine) But as I can’t seem to sleep this morning I thought she might appreciate waking up to a little public appreciation 😊
She started maybe 9 months ago. Since then she has created her own website and social media platform in a day. Which now generates around 3-5 leads a day and has recently started being approached for paid advertising as her following is amazing!
Thanks to Rach we’re growing our business much faster than we ever anticipated and during a really difficult time. This has allowed us to recruit new staff, build our little office and support lots of other businesses with their issues from the pandemic.
She is a shy accountant inherently but has been on the front cover of magazines, on the radio, in podcasts and recently in the telegraph newspaper.
She works at least 50 hours a week on the business, is smashing an exec MBA at Cranfield (which is an achievement of its own, let alone being one of their youngest take-ons in her cohort) she is actually doing so exceptionally well there that she was asked to join the full-time cohort venture capitalist team and recently won the European finals! I like to call her my Euro champ now. 😁
As a side note, Rach didn’t go to university, so as this is a masters she had to work extra hard for acceptance.
Whilst being a badass at university she still tries to help others by running a cranfield networking event, she mentors a trainee accountant, takes dinners to a little old lady up the road, cooks for us most evenings, does a little charity work and supports female business owners where possible.
And it doesn’t stop there… She’s now become so good at speaking that she’s been approached by an accountant body to ask if she will tutor for them (Rach speaks so passionately – I can’t reallly explain it, she speaks with excitement, honesty and is genuinely enthusiastic she keeps your attention) and she’s also lining up an event most likely in May with one of the most well know international speaking event organisers in the world! She’ll release more info on this soon I’m sure 😃
She’s also now technically an author who generates only a little, but some recurring income from an ebook she took the time to sit down and write 📚
In my eyes she really is one of the best in our industry. In the last 9 months she’s achieved more than a lot will achieve in years and many in a lifetime (including myself!).
She never brands herself as being different or changing the way our industry operates, but if anyone really does do this it’s Rach.
Most of all, or at least most importantly to me she’s a great cat and dog mummy, takes our dog for a walk and even a run most days. She’s a great best friend, she’s a great sister and still somehow has time for me!
Well done Rach, you’re amazing! Xx
UPDATE – Rach had to show me how to post this as it was over the maximum character limit…
UPDATE 2 – The dog has eaten one of Rach’s trainers, so she won’t be running for a while…
