Business Manifesto

We believe in being present with our families and we stand for not sacrificing your family on the altar of perceived success. We prioritize people over profits.

We believe in using our business to create abundance so that we can be radically generous with our churches, communities, and families. Business growth gives us the freedom to give generously to charity, to contribute financially to our families, and to serve our communities, and this creates true legacy.

We stand for women being confident in the work that they do. Because we know that when they're confident in the work that they do, that it shows their sons and daughters and the next generation what's possible.

We stand for you building sustainable business systems that are going to last and stand the test of time. We have a bigger vision than just 15 seconds of fame for our clients and for our customers… we stand for building legacy businesses that will stand the test of time. And that’s why we teach you how to build sustainable business systems on strong foundations using tried and true proven marketing strategies that have worked for years.
We believe in full transparency and authenticity in how we present and how we talk about our business. We want you to know what's going on so that you have clear expectations for the challenges that may come up as you’re building your online business. Building an online business takes work. It takes perseverance. And it’s going to require something from you.
We stand for respecting the intelligence of online business owners. There are so many decisions that are required when you're growing and you're building your online business. We know that you're smart. We know you're savvy. We know you're capable. And rather than telling you how you have to do things, we offer you options so that you can pick the one that's best for you and your business and the lifestyle you are wanting to create.

Hi, I’m Rachel!

I’m an entrepreneur, podcaster, speaker and founder of The Business with Impact Academy™.

Almost ten years ago, I traded in my corner office and corporate executive “comfort” for freedom and impact. But it didn’t start off that way… When I first started my business, I felt STUCK! I knew that I was meant to be serving… I was passionate about my purpose… but I thought that the only way for me to grow and serve MORE of the people I knew I was meant to serve was to work harder and harder.

This meant more late nights spent hunched over a computer, more mom guilt as I stressed about missing time with my beautiful baby girl, and more doubt creeping in as I wondered what the heck I got myself into.

And I understand the doubt and fear – the sleepless nights and struggle. I know what it’s like to be stuck. To compare yourself to others who are further along and feel like you aren’t measuring up.

But I’m Here To Tell You There’s A Better Way
— And I Had To Learn It The Hard Way.

After spending my first few years in business struggling to “do-it-all”, I discovered something life-changing:

There is a way to create a BUSINESS with IMPACT without having to hustle 24/7!

Over the last (almost) 10 years, I’ve launched and scaled three of my own businesses to multiple 6-figures — without having to sacrifice my precious time with my family, or compromise on providing them with the absolute best!
In fact it’s been the opposite. The more I’ve grown, scaled and made, the less time I’ve had to work.

I’ve also worked with countless clients to scale their own businesses in a way that enables them to live the life they’ve always dreamed of, regardless of where they are in their business, how busy their family life is, or how much work they think they need to do in order to reach their financial goals.

If it’s possible for me and my clients, it’s possible for you, too.
And that’s why I'm dedicated to helping you do the same.

I want to drastically condense your timeline to success. I want to take everything I’ve learned from successfully launching three thriving online businesses and give you the blueprint.

Here's the bottom line…

I get it! You really WANT to believe that we should work together, but maybe some small part of you is still a little skeptical??!!

I’ve been there, too!

I’ve invested more than $100,000 {seriously!!!} in trainings, mentors, and certifications in order to ensure that I have the highest level of skills to serve YOU! I’m committed to investing and upleveling my knowledge, and my clients get the benefit of my expertise!

The Official Bio

AKA the write-about-yourself-in-third-person version

Rachel McMichael is a business strategist and digital marketing expert who helps online course creators and coaches start, simplify, and scale their online business without sacrificing their family, their free time, or their sanity.

Through her signature program, The Business with Impact Academy™, and her podcast, Business with Impact, Rachel works with driven entrepreneurs to bring them the strategies they need to build a business that allows them to live the life they love while still creating a massive impact.

Her raving fans and clients have called her “a fantastic mentor” and have said, “Working with Rachel has honestly been the best business decision I have made.”

When she’s not helping women automate their businesses and their lives and implement strategies that take them from struggling to scaling, Rachel’s spending time with her two adorable children, sipping on a cafe americano, or binging on the latest and greatest Hallmark movies!

You can find Rachel’s tips, business advice, and inspiration at rachelmcmichael.com and on the Business with Impact Podcast! You can also sign up for her free Business Toolkit here (you won’t regret it!).

Still want to know more?

Here are a few more things about me!

1. When I wake up in the morning, the very first thought on my mind is: Give me Jesus. And after that: Give me coffee!

2. My heart glows when I see women succeed, and it breaks when I see women do anything but uplift one another.

3. In my world, date nights are an absolute necessity, a clean house is overrated, and coffee {or Chuy's} {or anything chocolate} is always a fabulous idea.

4. Fantasizing about spending a month in Maui {or Disney World} is totally reasonable.

5. Striving for joy is a must.

6. But at the end of the day, glorifying God in all that I do is all that really matters.

It's your time to thrive!

“I always thought I was pretty tech saavy… until I started my own business. There were so many options, it made my head spin! Thankfully, I found Rachel. She helped me get clear on my options and develop a tech strategy that works for me! She made it easy to understand and showed just how user friendly it could be. So glad to have Rachel as my techspert and secret weapon for all my technical business needs.”

“Thank God for Rachel! As someone who finds the world of technology a bit daunting, I was over the moon to get to work with her. Working with Rachel has made my life so much easier. Not only is she super smart and helpful, she is also really lovely and easy to talk to. If she can explain this stuff to me in a way that I understand it, she can explain it to anyone!”
