Rachel Brenke is one talented lady. As you can tell by this post's title, she's accomplished more in a few years than many people accomplish in a lifetime! Did we mention that she earned her JD while her husband was serving in the Army and deployed for part of that time? She's also a wonderful Mom to four kids. I'm a little exhausted just thinking about it, how 'bout you?!
In our interview with Rachel she shares a lot of her “secret sauce” on how she's accomplished so much while keeping her priorities straight. Tune in to hear the steps she takes to make sure family comes first. You'll also hear how she's pushed through barriers to contribute to her family's financial security.
