The book is a treasure. It was so wonderful to read. It’s breathtaking how beautifully and genuinely it’s written. Even after just the first few pages, it's heartwarming and inspiring, and it’s filled with such sweet stories. I felt transported back to Iowa and surrounded by family. Rachel has a keen awareness for special details and an amazing ability to weave it all together. I could not picture it being done better. The flow is just perfect.
Although she knew nothing of me or my subject at first, working with Rachel was like communicating with a friend about a topic for which we both cared deeply. When I contacted her I had a subject, but didn't know what kind of piece I needed. She offered clarity and really helped me to define the project. The piece she wrote was strong, sincere, and emotional without being mushy. Exactly what I needed.
Rachel has a way of shining a light on what you're trying to say. Reading my own story was like discovering feelings I never knew I had. I wanted to leave this for my children, so they would understand how I felt about my childhood. Rachel wrote my story in a way that was honest and real. I didn't know what to expect, and Rachel made everything clear and easy. I will always be grateful for the work she did in guiding me along and keeping me focused. I'm glad I finally took this step.
It amazes me how you're able to come up with words that speak my thoughts. You read exactly what was on my mind and compiled it into something short and extraordinary. What makes you special is your very creative thought process and listening skills. You seem to take great pride in every project you do. You take each assignment as if it's a blank canvas. You're adaptive to each client's individualized goals and project needs. Your work is commendable.
I have worked with Rachel on two projects and everything from the initial contact, to the brainstorm session, to the final product was amazing. Rachel knows how to ask the right questions to get at a viable and worthy expression of my experiences. I was surprised by how she was able to take our discussion and translate it to such an impressive and extraordinary story. I am so happy I came across Rachel's website as it has made a huge impact on me!
YPO graduation speech
Rachel, you have mad skills. People who read your samples can’t possibly know what you were working from. I was focused on details and stories, and you zoomed in on what it all means and why it matters. You painted an authentic picture of me and my life. I love it. My wife’s immediate reaction was “Michael, this is you.” I don’t know how you do this. It cannot be taught.

YPO graduation speech
You wrote a speech that was on point, had great flow, and was easy for me to memorize. I was very pleased with my performance and got great feedback after the event. Comments like: "I’ve been to this event for the last 10 years and that was the best speech I’ve heard," and "That speech was moving, I feel like I know you so much better after that."
I knew as soon as I found you that you were the right person to do this for me. And anyone who knows me knows I'm never wrong! You did a hell of a job, kid.

book proposal & synopsis
I couldn't be more excited that I found Rachel. She delivered an executive bio for me that was top shelf and was timely, affordable, and she was just plain awesome to work with. I hope to work with her more in the future.
Rachel, you did better than I ever thought could be possible. From your first draft, it was clear you understood very well how much Jason meant to me and how I wanted his tribute to reflect the wonderful young man he was, and all that he stood for. I had a good feeling about you going into this. You've done a terrific job of capturing Jason with your words. I really mean that from the bottom of a mother's heart. Your words seem to come to life as I read them. It takes a very special, gifted person to write the way you do; the way so many people wish they could. Your writing gives life to words.
Oh Rachel, it is absolutely beautiful and you truly have captured what I wanted to say. I am here crying at work. What you have written is so very beautiful. Thank you. Your words helped me make a fitting tribute to a wonderful lady.
I can't tell you how many times I read the draft. I fell in love with it. I couldn't believe that the conversation we had was actually enough for you to write this much about me. I was nervous about contacting you, but after we talked, I felt relieved. You walked me through the process, and put my mind at ease. You created a document that is everything we agreed upon and much more. It really expresses my personality and who I am.
I engaged Rachel for two different speeches and I was so grateful for her expertise. The process was simple, and both times she captured what I wanted to say in such a brilliant way. I received numerous comments on how terrific the speeches were and I could never have written such elegant and wonderful words. Rachel was able to translate my thoughts into heartfelt, meaningful speeches that were a hit on both occasions. She is a true professional and my go-to in the future for any important speech writing.
When she interviewed me for my bio, Rachel was able to pinpoint my specific circumstances with remarkable clarity. She had me looking at myself in a whole new way. The result was an accurate depiction of my personal and professional story, told in a way that I could never have expected. look forward to working with Rachel again very soon.
I must admit, I felt unsure about outsourcing the writing of my bio, but it's the best decision I have made for my business so far. After struggling with it for weeks, I found Rachel and sought her help. Trying to sum up your entire life and make it sound interesting and appealing is a daunting task - but Rachel perfected it in just one draft. I didn't even have to make any changes. She captured everything I wanted to convey in just the right tone and mood.
Rachel really knows how to capture one's individuality in her writing. I have never read anything that comes close. She really captured the things I wanted to say, and knew how to define me based on the things I confided in her. She was very personable and made me feel completely comfortable. Everything she wrote was absolutely beautiful, authentic, inspiring, and passionate just like I wanted. It was even better than I expected. She is committed to showing your spirit on paper, and she's a devoted professional whose writings are truly unique.
