Rachel’s Advice

“I would say figure out what you’re good at. I think so many of us try and do everything, especially as consultants and you can’t do everything and, that’s when you need to find your team of different people who have different skill sets. Because then you become complementary. And I would say find, make sure that you love what you do. You know, my dad told me a long time ago that you spend 80% of your day at work. You, you gotta like it. and, I feel like that’s one thing about the travel industry and the outdoor industry is that most people in it love it.”
