ACTUALLY, I CAN. Empowered Strategy Sessions for Times Like These


I'm a brand strategist and business growth specialist who helps visionaries, entrepreneurs and business owners attract, convert and cultivate relationships with target audiences through customized strategy, design, content, digital marketing solutions and business ownership advising.

Over the last 16 years of being a business owner, I've learned first-hand just how resilient and adaptable small businesses must be to survive.

Though my approach has remained the same, my offerings have evolved over the years in response to my clients' emerging needs and alongside my own professional development.

I hope to meet you and hear your story soon!



Some personal reflections on recent events and an insider’s view on how our business has navigated COVID-19 so far.

Spoiler alert: Yes, we can do hard things, but this is the hardest thing yet. 


Decision-making strategies and tools for rough weather

VIRTUAL L + L: Led by Rachel and Suzi Hunn

Wednesday, April 29th

noon to 1:30 pm


So picture this.

It’s a perfectly calm day on the ocean. There’s not even the tiniest whisper of a wind. You’re in a sailboat, and there’s not a ripple on the water...

Suddenly you perceive something coming your direction. It’s a massive wave, and it’s coming out of nowhere. In less than a minute, it’s going to capsize your boat.

Rachel is a powerhouse brand marketer and authentic and thorough in her approach. I engaged Rachel and her team to create key brand messaging and creative for my fundraising strategy agency, RAIN. I consistently receive compliments on the messaging and look and feel of my brand. I recently had a seasoned brand marketer comment that this was the best branding she has seen for a small business in 12 years. This is an amazing testimony from a professional of her caliber. I would strongly suggest engaging Rachel and The Rachel Greenhouse Agency in your next marketing project.

Working with Rachel has pulled me into a different side of thinking. I tend to be linear, need things to make sense immediately and struggle with vulnerability.  She helped me to see and understand the other side of what it really means to have a brand. After she helped tear down some walls, I've never felt more proud and connected to my brand.  I finally get it.  I have a masculine brand but to her it doesn't matter, it's finding you in the brand. I've never felt more proud and connected to my brand. I finally get it. I would recommend her to anyone who is looking for someone who is dedicated, a good communicator, and expressive about branding and marketing. You're the best Rachel!

Rachel understands entrepreneurism from a big picture perspective and has a good pulse on current market needs and emerging opportunities. She has a well-seasoned approach to what works and what doesn’t. As a veteran business owner herself, Rachel “gets” cash flow and the diverse challenges a growing business faces. She knows what it means to scale from a marketing standpoint, recognizing that sometimes doing things one step at a time is all an owner can handle financially. With this reality top of mind, Rachel brings a great deal of patience and pragmatism to her role, offering timely ideas and flexible offerings fueled by a strong creative gene. She guides business owners to take achievable action in the right direction, reassuring them that these steps will eventually lead to a fully- executed plan. Rachel invests heavily in building long-term relationships and helping her clients realize marketing ROI. She follows through on her commitments with great client service and individualized attention.

A HUGE thank you to you and your team for helping me brand my business. I’m so appreciative of all the talented individuals at RGA. From start to finish, the process has been a pleasure.

Courtney Dingman
Founder and Chief Scout, SCOUT Strategic Donor Research

I hired The Rachel Greenhouse Agency to help take my current business and create stronger roots by establishing a better brand, marketing materials and a website. The process was life-changing for me.  It forced me to consider where I really wanted my business to go and Rachel and her team helped me to better define it, and as a result they created a logo, materials and a website that was better than I had dreamed of. I am especially thankful for the quality of people Rachel has on her team with various expertise to help me along the way.  They were patient yet helped to keep me on track to meet my goals.  I am so thankful that I decided to hire The Rachel Greenhouse Agency, and it was well worth every penny! Thank you!

When I launched my private practice I knew what I wanted to do and the clients I wanted to work with. My problem was that it was all in my head and would come out in a flurry of words that made sense to me but who knows what others heard. I wanted to be succinct and clear. That's where Rachel came in. I hired her to help me find clarity and direction so I could communicate what I have to offer to the right audience. In therapy, it's critical clients feel a connection with me. I need to feel that connection to myself as a business owner.  Rachel helped me do just that. She gave me homework that challenged me to think about who I am and how I want to use that in my business. I felt connected more to who I was, what I was trying to do, and my overall message. Rachel used her innate skills to recognize and point out who I am and how it can be used in my business identity. I love how far we've gotten and am looking forward to uncovering more!

Working with Rachel and her creative and attentive manner is resulting in a clear vision and activated transition in my business! My new brand reflects the creative healer that I truly am, including artwork created by me, which reflects my passions. I have felt supported and understood throughout the process, and am now in the final stages of realizing my new website. I continue to gain confidence and pride in visualizing, describing, and realizing my newly formed life as an artist/healer from knowing and working with Rachel.

Working with Rachel was wonderful…great branding and website process—she allowed me to come in with a strong vision, and was able to translate that into a brand. I had some specific layout and format requests, and if she didn't already know how to make my request a reality, she learned how. I guess that’s the thing that impressed me the most. It’s one thing to be a good designer and just create something with minimal input, and it's another thing to have LOTS of input from a client and make it all cohesive. Can’t say enough good things!

Rachel knew what questions to ask and how to get an understanding of me and what image I want to convey for my business. Then with excellent creative and artistic skills, she created a logo that I love and am proud to share. Her calm, professional manner is consistent and very easy to work with. She is very good at what she does! Rachel knew what questions to ask and how to capture the image I wanted to portray for my business. 100% satisfaction!

I absolutely love working with Rachel! She did a fabulous job creating my logo and my website. She really made a point of getting to know me and my business so she could create a logo that truly fit my business' personality. She is very kind, fun and always open to suggestions that I had. I still work with Rachel on an ongoing basis, she creates beautiful marketing material for my business and she does so in a very timely manner! She is willing to help me at the drop of a hat. With running a very busy business, I appreciate this so much! She is truly a professional and really cares about helping small businesses succeed. Thanks Rachel!

I felt that my online presence did not reflect my identity or offerings. Since we have started working together, things are more in alignment and flow, my message is clearer. Rachel was interested in the insides of my business. I feel confident sending my website link to people now.
