The Details

Because you know that good writing will grow your business. 


Because you know that writing well will enrich your life with the empowerment of your voice.  


Because when you do sit down to write, nothing happens.

You want writing to be easy. You know it can be enjoyable. You see other people writing with ease and you wish the same was true for you.

Now it can be.

But How?

By taking the fear out of the writing process and making it a deliberate practice.

By stepping back from the rules and the grammar and the restrictions.

By discovering the untapped power of your own beautiful written voice.

By working through exercises that are proven not only to improve your writing, but also to help you fall in love with the writing process itself.

Because when you enjoy a task, it suddenly becomes simple.

Rachel provides an invaluable service for business

owners looking to upgrade their writing skills.

About Rachel

When I'm not writing and editing and teaching my fellow creatives how to do the same, you can find me... 

Reading "just one more chapter" with the little boy in the red striped pajamas.

Curling up in front of the fire with my favorite book and my favorite rescue pup.

Lounging through lazy weekends with my husband and the little girl in pink socks who is just discovering the joy of reading.

Connecting with all the family and friends who make life so rich and so worth living. Usually over a glass of wine.

Visiting the amazing museums and libraries in Minneapolis on hot summer days.

Walking through our hundreds of miles of trails and parks on one of the early days of spring or last days of fall.

Staying inside at the local theater when the temperatures dip below zero. Well below zero.

Traveling the world with my favorite people. Follow along with our crazy adventures over on Instagram.
