Today’s guest needs no intro - Rachel Hollis is a three-time New York Times bestselling author with over 100 million podcast downloads.  This Austin mom of 4 is also the founder of RISE Conferences, the #1 personal development conference focused entirely on women. When Rachel texted me to ask if I wanted to do an episode together, it was an easy yes, but I wanted to be really intentional about using this opportunity to deep dive into a specific, actionable business strategy that she hasn’t shared before. That’s how we landed on this week’s case study: the untold story of how Rachel made the New York Times bestsellers list the first time, as a previously self-published and still mostly unknown author then. Whether you’re an aspiring author or not, each of you listening has an important message, mission, or offer to get out into the world, and Rachel’s experience over the last decade plus can help you reach more people with it. If you enjoy our conversation today and want more authentic, untold stories, join Rachel on tour this fall at - we’ll drop the link below in the show notes. Let’s dive in.
