The New Rachel Allene Headquarters

I am so excited to finally reveal the brand new office space for my business!

In the last several months, my business grew significantly and I immediately needed more space. If you watch my Instagram stories, you probably have seen me packaging orders at all hours of the day in all different rooms in my house. The work was literally spilling into all rooms of my house. We knew we needed a solution but didn’t know what the best option was. Converting the garage was always an idea, but it seemed like so much work.

Let me say this first: I am no expert Mompreneur and in fact, I still have a lot to learn and a lot of growing to do. But, I’ve been doing it for a little over a year and I’ve definitely learned a few things. The first year is hard. I know. Or maybe you have a perfect baby and it’s easy. If that’s the case, there’s no reason for you to read this blog post. You are golden. For the rest of us, read on.

Day In The Life

As a Mama and business owner, I get asked a lot about our schedule and how we structure our day to get all the things accomplished. You must know that we don’t get everything done every single day and it’s not always perfect. We have hard days and we have days where everything goes according to plan (<-- those days are few and far between). The schedule I lay out here is a loose schedule and can adjust here and there from day to day. What I list out here is what we do about 80% of the time. This is what works for us, our family, and my work commitments. If your schedule differs, don’t feel discouraged. You should always do what is best for you!

How to Get Up Early and Be Productive

Something I get asked about a lot is how I get up so early. The first disclaimer is that I am a morning person. So, waking up early comes somewhat easier to me. If you aren’t a morning person naturally, you might not be able to get up as early as I do. There is nothing wrong with that. This is what works for me and my current life season!

How To Build A Tribe Around Your Brand

Let’s talk about Target. I mean, it’s like one of my favorite places to go. Feeling down? Go to Target. Bored on a Sunday afternoon? Go to Target. Need to finish getting your 10k steps? Go to Target?

Over the last decade, Target completely changed their marketing a created a tribe of followers. They invented The Target Run. And it’s something that people look forward to. It’s something that brings people together.

The Importance of Being Vulnerable

The other day I was catching up with a friend from college and at one point in the conversation he said “I’ve never known you to ever stuff or hide your emotions” to which we all chuckled and joked that two hours was a long time for me to go without processing how I feel about something.

What Motherhood Has Taught Me

As I write this, I am sitting on the couch as my husband and son nap together on the other couch. Knox will be 4 weeks tomorrow. It feels like it’s been forever. But it also feels like I blinked and now he is 4 weeks old. My life has completely changed in every single way since Knox arrived on July 17th, 2017. It’s been the best and hardest four weeks of my life. I never knew I could feel so many emotions all at once. I never knew I could survive with such little sleep. I never knew it would be so hard and amazing all at the same time.

Women with Purpose | Interview with Nevica Vasquez

I am so excited to continue with the new blog series for the Rachel Allene blog! This past year, I have learned so much about growing a business, building a brand, increasing online sales, growing a mailing list, etc. through the influence and expertise of other highly creative and talented women. They have encouraged me, inspired me, and taught me to be fearless in my pursuits. They run their businesses with intention, purpose, and with a heart to give back. I am excited to start sharing some interviews with these women. They will offer insight, real talk, and actionable steps for growing a successful and profitable business (while making a difference!)
