Making a flex biz even MORE flexible


Making a flex biz even MORE flexible

Hello (7).jpg

So, as you know if you read my last email, it’s not biz-as-usual around here!

Since my Grandma’s fall, I’ve been making a few changes.

Now, I must say it is SO rewarding to already have a flexible business. When something truly unexpected like this happens, I don’t have to be in the office every day.

But even my business could be more flexible.

And that means some big changes at McMichael Consulting LLC.

At this point, my agency is not taking on any more one-on-one Facebook Ads clients. At least, not until Grandma is on her feet again.

We’re focusing on my other passions — our courses and my network marketing biz.

I had to hit pause for a few weeks, but we’re now relaunching Facebook Ads Academy later this month. This is a "don't miss" if mastering FB ads is on your to-do list!

In amazing news, Grandma is on the mend and fourteen hour stays at the hospital are no longer my new normal.... I’m visiting rehab on the daily, and she's busy learning how to get around without putting any weight on her feet at all — a big challenge, but she’s up for it!

Oh, and looking back at these past few weeks, I have to say: 5-minute hair is kind of INCREDIBLE when you’re spending all day every day at the hospital ;)

Ok, your turn. Have you ever had an unexpected event that made you change how you work? Tell me — I read every email!


So, THIS happened...


So, THIS happened...

Hello (6).jpg

I know it has been a LONG time... and there’s a reason. Life just took a major detour!!

It started a few weeks ago, but I’ve been spending a lot of time in the hospital since then...

...Here’s the story...

On Easter weekend my parents and my grandma came into town to spend the weekend with us!  

Now, Grandma is 91 and SUPER-independent. She lives on her own, drives herself everywhere, plays Bridge every week, and does #allthethings. She was just popping two states over for a visit — because she’s that active.

On Sunday, Grandma was up early, ready to go and beautifully dressed in her Easter suit. We had just finished opening Easter baskets, and Grandma went upstairs to grab her medicine before breakfast. A few minutes later, we heard the most awful sound... something was falling down the stairs.

As we heard Grandma’s cry for help, we dashed to the staircase. But it was too late. She had fallen from the top of our stairs ALL the way to the bottom.

We called 9-1-1 and help arrived super quickly. The paramedics and emergency room personnel were absolutely incredible -- it's not exactly where we had been planning to spend Easter, but we were beyond grateful for their sacrifice to be there with us that morning.

Grandma's mostly ok (HUGE relief)... but she broke BOTH of her feet.

That meant surgery and an unexpected stay in the ICU. Now, it means rehab and at least 12 weeks of recovery.

Her quick 3-day trip just became a 3-month stay.

While all of that was happening, my sister went into labor (and my absolutely, perfectly adorable nephew was born!) and my parents went to be with her. Thankfully, I could be here for Grandma.

For 10 days I spent sometimes up to 14 hours a day in the hospital... from early in the morning until late at night.

That meant a lot of parts of my business were put on hold, which is ok!

That’s why I have this business... and in my next email I’m going to tell you about the decisions I made because of this accident.

We’re making lemonade out of lemons over here!!

Spring is HERE in the south, ladies, and it is beautiful!

Last week I did something that wouldn’t have been possible just one year ago.

I disconnected from my biz and took Spring Break off.

If you’re like me {more than a little Type A}, you know this is no small thing!

I popped over to Texas with my sweet girl for a fun mother-daughter trip.

Here we are at the zoo….

We truly chilled out. And that was huge for me because I could be in the moment, not preoccupied with my business.

I knew my assistant was taking care of admin. My launch with Noor had just wrapped. Everything was organized, ready to go with our incredible group of super-motivated, ready-to-scale ladies.

Hello (5).jpg

All I had to do was check in periodically with each of my groups {my marketing team, the ladies in Launch It 2.0, and my network marketing team}, purely to keep the vibe high.

I knew that coming back this week would be full-on. {I’m currently re-recording an entirely new version of Facebook Ads Academy}. But for that one week, everything was ticking along without me.

That’s a feeling I couldn’t even imagine a year ago. When my business was entirely my agency, I did client work every single day. Even on vacation, that could mean 2am nights, and sometimes up to five hours of calls a day.

But by working less, my business has multiplied.

It’s crazy, right?

Now, I’m guessing that like me, you went into business to get MORE freedom and flexibility.

If you’re not there yet, don’t beat yourself up! And please, don’t tell yourself that if you burn the candle at both ends now, someday you can really take a vacation.

You have to design a freedom business, with intention!

That truth came home to me this time last year, when I was sitting in a gorgeous suite in New York bawling my eyes out…

I’ll tell you the story in my next email, and let you in on what changed.

Talk to you then!


I never share this type of thing with you.... But…

Exhibit A (before): Took a full hour to style and curl. And it's still brassy. And frizzy.

Exhibit B (after): This is Day 4 hair, brush and go (I curled it back on Day 2).

I’m not sure that I really need to say anything else.

But it would be RUDE for me not to let you in on my hair secrets.

I lead with value. I rarely push the sales of these amazing products.

However, I haven’t seen a DEAL this good since Black Friday.

TODAY ONLY this haircare line is on mega-steal sale...

So, if you’ve been on the sidelines thinking about seeing what all the fuss is about, NOW is the time to reach out.

(Hit "Reply" and tell me what's going on with your hair -- let's get your SUCCESS STORY today -- before this mega-deal runs out!)

Because here's the deal...

When I first heard about these products six months ago, like I said, I was a total skeptic! I didn’t think I could have good hair and healthy products. BUT I had several friends who were using them and the hair transformations they were seeing were almost too good to be true!

The truth was, my "amazing (but totally chemically gross/damaged) hair" was taking me hours to style, was totally greasy by day 2 or day 3, and was up in a ponytail (or messy mom-bun) more times than not.

I had tried botanical products -- but they all made my hair limp, lame, and brassy.

I thought that having "good" hair required more -- more time, more money, and more chemicals.

BUT then I started seeing the results my friends were having with these magical unicorn products.

AND then I tried these magical unicorn products.

Hello (1).png

I've been AMAZED!

My hair is shinier and healthier, my split ends are a thing of the past, and I spend exactly 5 minutes getting ready each day! 5 minutes!! (Yes, I'm saving about 15 HOURS a month -- what could you do with 15 hours??)

PLUS for the first time ever, I've ditched the straighter -- blowdry and go is my new normal!

AND I’m going 5 days between washes.

AND my hair is holding curl -- for DAYS.

And Bonus -- they're actually GOOD for my hair! NO Parabens, NO Sulfates, NO DEA/MEA, NO Phthalates, NO PEG, NO Phenoxyethanol, NO Ethanol, NO Petrochemicals, NO Gluten, NO Sodium Chloride, NO Harsh Salt System, NO Harmful Colors, NO Harmful Fragrances!

My hair is stronger and healthier, and my scalp is finally balanced.

It's YOUR turn! You don't need more time, more money, or more chemicals to have amazing hair that you can FEEL GOOD about.

TODAY ONLY these products are on mega-steal sale...

Hit "reply" and tell me what's going on with your hair -- let's get your TRANSFORMATION (and get back your time, your money, and your healthy hair) today -- before this mega-deal runs out!

I didn't hit my goal this month... and it didn't matter


I didn't hit my goal this month... and it didn't matter

Hello (4).jpg

Can you believe it's already March?!?!

At the beginning of every month, I pause to reflect, plan, and celebrate the big wins from the past month!

February was a short but crazy month!

A mastermind retreat in Laguna Beach, Valentine's Day, our wedding anniversary, wedding showers, baby showers, and a super EPIC launch were just a few of the incredible accomplishments.

And even though I fell short of one of my BIG goals for the network marketing biz (I didn't qualify for a big goal in February), I helped 17 other women achieve their goals (and that felt SERIOUSLY amazing!!)

Plus I got the go-ahead from Corporate to grab my very own paid-for Cadillac! (I'm going to do a LIVE video this week sharing why I'm waiting to pick it up off the lot #DaveRamseyMadeMeDoIt).

Y'all -- what it happening in this business has been a complete and total MOVEMENT.

⭐It's allowed me to scale back at the agency... (we're no longer taking on new clients and have a six month wait list for done-for-you ads)

⭐It's allowed me to SHOW UP for the things in life that really matter (weddings, anniversaries, birthdays, showers, etc)

⭐It's allowed me to finally feel FREE!! ⭐

But that’s not the most amazing part.

Watching the incredible women who have joined me in TEARS OF JOY over what’s happened in their lives in the past few months has been the MOST EXCITING part of this journey…

⭐Women who are retiring their husbands.

⭐Women who are leaving their corporate jobs.

⭐Women who are contributing significantly to their household incomes.

⭐Women who are more confident, more excited, and totally supported.

Knowing that I can give this gift to others for such a small investment is MASSIVE to me!

I’ve found the answer!

And now I’m on a personal mission to help women just like you do the exact same thing!

I want you to join me.

You’ve heard me talk about this new partnership with a network marketing company in the last few months. (And my amazing #fiveminutehair transformation)

I know, I know… I’m just as surprised as you are!

I’ve been on this journey for just a few months, and have grown a team of over 1,500 incredible, ambitious, generous, leaders in this 100% profit revenue stream.

I know what you might be thinking... "Well, easy for you, Rachel, you’ve got a massive following."

Here’s where it gets better, friend.
