One of the reasons I chose this gorgeous blue paint color and bought the beautiful birds and branches decal to go on the office wall behind my desk (see photo below) is so that when I am working with clients via Skype their view is as lovely as possible.
Even in the winter we can pretend it’s a sprightly spring day, can’t we? After all, when we are working together on making your dreams and goals a reality, it’s bound to be a sunshine-y experience.
So here it is–the Skype strategy session discount I’m offering from now until the end of the year–so that schedules and distance, perhaps even some sleet and snow, don’t prevent you from getting the support and advice you need.
I can help you with navigating a transition, tackling a new goal, getting back on track with your dream, strategizing and creating a brand, planning an event, focusing your marketing and social media efforts, designing a website you can maintain yourself and much more. I’ll even take the notes!
Hope to “see” you in my office one day soon, friend.
As many of you know, I’ve just moved into my first ever office outside the home since I started my marketing consulting business eight years ago.
The timing was just right, the stars aligned, and I felt clearly that I was supposed to do this. Bonus: It’s only 8 blocks from our house.
I moved in less than two weeks after signing the lease. Everything–from finding the $148 cabinet in exactly the right shade of red, to choosing a paint color called “Refreshing Pool,” to locating a footstool/ storage ottoman in dark sea foam green–was both intentional and intended to be.
Here are a few photos of my charming little business home.
You can learn more about where my inspiration and ideas came from by following my office board on Pinterest.*
There are a few finishing touches I haven’t yet gotten to–my own blog designs as canvases for the walls are ordered and on the way, a large art-deco style mirror needs to be put up (it’s going to reflect the light from the very high window toward my desk: Kristine’s brilliant idea!) and a framed magnetic chalkboard wall (where I will have my goals and deadlines and tasks laid out visually) needs to be drawn and painted. A clock for the wall, decoupaged clipboards for function and beauty, and just the right tea cozy will be added. All of this will happen very soon and I’m excited for my vision to be completely realized.
From the photos you can’t you see the 10 foot high ceilings and the vintage-inspired tiled ceiling. But I hope the pics communicate to you just some of what I feel when I walk into my little “room of her own” every morning.
Cheerful. Focused. Energized. Clear.
And so grateful.
I plan to have an open house sometime soon. If you’re in the Twin Cities area, you’ll be invited and I certainly hope you will bring your positive and powerful self to the space!
Now I’m ready to move forward with my big priorities for 2012: Growing to meet the needs of my expanding client base, getting organized around the nuts and bolts of managing my business (including hiring some help!) and rebranding to better articulate what I have learned about my particular strengths and passions during the last few years. I’ll also be creating a new web site that incorporates this blog.
I hope you’ll come along on this journey with me.
My new business address:
Rachel Greenhouse Consulting Services

Pinterest lets you organize and share all the beautiful things you find on the web. People use pinboards to plan their weddings, decorate their homes, and organize their favorite recipes.
Best of all, you can browse pinboards created by other people. Browsing pinboards is a fun way to discover new things and get inspiration from people who share your interests.
To get started, request an invite from me. I’ll be happy to introduce you to the joy of Pinterest!

We have this really magical thing happening over here.
It’s what we hoped would happen when we started bringing women to the same place at the same time –
♥ women who own businesses and have started non-profits
♥ women who want to own a business, but don’t yet know how or when
♥ women who make creative things
♥ women who write inspiring blogs
♥ women who want to offer healing to our world
♥ women who want to bring beauty to our world
♥ women who believe that there is something called abundance
which simply means that there is more than enough to go around
♥ women who know how to be authentic and caring
♥ women who ask for encouragement
♥ women who share freely what they know
♥ women who believe that one member’s success is every member’s success
♥ women who celebrate together
♥ women who support each other on tough days
♥ women like you
being community for each other.
We asked ourselves what would happen if we could wave a magic wand over our businesses, other women-owned businesses, and our community.
We asked ourselves what we could accomplish with and for each other through an organization that was member-owned. An organization that is organic and flexible, developing and growing according to the needs and desires of its members.
We asked ourselves what a community that embraced abundance, accountability, balance, creativity, generosity, financial well-being, growth, honesty, individuality, and mentoring would look like. And feel like.
And behold! This is what happened!
It’s called the Magic Wand Collective.
It’s a community for Women Small Business Owners.
We have added 90 members since our launch on January 20th.
And it’s blindingly beautiful.
