For Rachael, the most enriching part of her journey is seeing the transformation of her clients. “The best part of what I do is that I get to empower other women to create their own Freedom Life, on their terms. I love witnessing the transformation of my clients and seeing them step into their full potential.”
For budding Indigenous entrepreneurs, Skyler’s advice is,”Go for it,” he urges.
