About Rachel Smets
Rachel helps ambitious professionals CHANGE from feeling STUCK in an unfulfilling career to a life with meaning, FREEDOM and no regrets.
Find Clarity, Confidence and Create your next step to live the life you desire.
A few years ago I decided to QUIT my stressful 9-5 corporate job. Through a journey of confusion, self-doubt, lots of research and a ton of fears I'm now living the freedom lifestyle I craved.
A life of traveling the world and doing what I love most: inspire and support people to change and live a life, not a living.
Stop wasting time. Find CLARITY, CONFIDENCE and create next steps to the life you deserve.
Whether you want to boost your confidence, overcome fears or gain courage, I'd love to show you how.
Rachel will motivate and inspire people by sharing her own journey in her straightforward and down-to-earth style.
She graduated from the University of Maryland (US) with a bachelor's degree in psychology, and achieved her master's degree in management from the University of St Andrews (UK).
