Rachel Rodgers: We Should All Be Millionaires
Have you become accustomed to old mindsets, limiting beliefs and poor behaviors that no longer serve who you are today? Have you become content making “just enough” to get by?
If you know that you are the person who has achieved a certain level of success, yet you find yourself making decisions from who you actually are today and what you’ve achieved, then We Should All Be Millionaires is the book for you. As we bring our Thoughtful Money Series to a close, I felt that this book is the perfect resource to help you shift into a millionaire mindset and work toward building generational wealth.
Author and Founder of We Should All Be Millionaires: The Club, Rachel Rodgers started her career working on The Hill with nonprofits, federal judges, and Hillary Clinton. Constantly faced with discrimination regarding her race and sex, Rachel recognized the significant wealth gap within black and brown communities and realized that changing the world is easier when you have some cash in your bank account. By shifting her mindset and capacity to hold abundance and wealth, Rachel decided to stop making “just enough” and built a million dollar business that could help others do the same.
Rachel is a woman of color, a mother of four and a seven-figure business owner – in that order. She is the Creator of the Hello Seven Podcast and is known for using her voice to share with the world that We Should All Be Millionaires.
