Interview with Rachel Rainbolt, MA – Parenting Expert

Interview with Rachel RainboltTell us a little bit about yourself and your entrepreneurial journey.

I am a mother, author, parenting expert, and educator. After earning my graduate degree, I found myself wanting to contribute in meaningful and positive ways to society while mothering my little ones. I was frustrated by the compartmentalization and strong boundaries between the different important facets of life as a woman in our society. I knew that my work changing people’s lives for the better and mothering my little ones in a way that emphasized both quality and quantity was compatible and would make the world an even better place in the long run. So I forged my own path and created my business.

What did you do before launching your own business?

I launched my business after I earned my master’s degree in marital and family therapy (MFT). So before launching Ohana Wellness I was a full time mother, graduate student, and MFT practicum intern.

How did you fund your business?

The only initial investment required was the cost of the certification to become a Certified Educator of Infant Massage (CEIM). This was where my business began and it grew 100% through free marketing strategies and the investment of my time and efforts.

How many hours do you work a week and how much is spent is your home office?

I teach two, 1 hour long classes a week and spend the two hours my baby spends sleep nursing on my chest at nap time running my business and writing.

How would you rate your success?

Publishing my first book was a huge success for me, a dream I have always harbored. I write articles, regularly present on news and radio channels, and have developed 2 classes, all of which have helped hundreds of families to nurture a loving bond and relationship with their little ones. In terms of financial success, I still have a ways to go before my goals are achieved.

What has been your biggest business struggle as an entrepreneur?

Marketing. Parents who get connected with my work are deeply moved and their lives are forever changed. Getting parents connected to my work has been my biggest struggle as an entrepreneur.

What advice would you give to a new entrepreneur?

Be passionate, sincere, and driven.

How do you manage all of your personal and business activities?

I am extremely driven and organized. These qualities lend themselves well to juggling life as an entrepreneur with 3 little ones under wing.
