“IT’S TIME TO START WORKING SMARTER, NOT HARDER”

– RACHEL FARNER

BUSINESS SUCCESS

Are you struggling to book clients and sell products?  Are you overworked and underpaid?  Well rest assured, you’re not alone!  As entrepreneurs and creatives, it is easy to get tunnel vision.  When you focus primarily on improving one area of your business, often times the other key components get neglected.  To truly succeed you need to address each and every business fundamental.  We will dive into each step outlined below during our time together.

INVEST IN YOUR BUSINESS, INVEST IN YOURSELF

  • I believe every successful business has had specific points of growth and change - each one being a stepping stone on the path to success. The time I spent with Rachel as my business consultant and mentor was indisputably one of those times for me and my business. Not only did she open my eyes to what my numbers were really saying (which wasn't a pretty picture), she gave me the confidence I needed to actually charge what I am worth. It was a highly emotional and stretching experience, but I can honestly say that I would not be where I am today without her guidance and tough love! I went from an average sale of $600 per session to my most recent average of $3500 per sale. Invest in Rachel, actually no - invest in your business and yourself. It will be returned to you tenfold.

MEET YOUR MENTOR

Head Shot_BW_SQ

I am so honored that you are considering me to help you take your business to the next level!

Hey there, I’m Rachel Farner! My husband Michael and I are wedding and portrait photographers, multi-business owners, and parents to two very active youngsters.  After years of learning and mastering the juggling act of mother, wife, and serial entrepreneur, I started consulting and mentoring other creatives and business owners. I am truly passionate about helping others to prioritize their families while simultaneously increasing their income. As a business owner and educator, I have had the privilege of helping creatives around the world transform their dreams into realities. With over 15 years of experience in sales, marketing and entrepreneurship, I can honestly say that my first love is business followed closely by photography.

TAKE CHARGE OF YOUR LIFE

  • Having Rachel help organize my business and coach me step-by-step with IPS was the best decision I've made for my photography business. Since Rachel's coaching I've improved my client experience, streamlined my management, and most importantly increased my sales to 4 times more than I was making previously. Also, I got my life back, now that I am being properly compensated for the art I provide and I have time with my family. Rachel really covers everything you could ever want to improve your business and it's catered to YOUR needs. If you are looking for the best on-on-one business coaching, look no further than Rachel. My sales average before mentoring with Rachel was $500 and now it is currently $2,000, with my highest sale being $3,900!

TRANSFORM YOUR BUSINESS

Do you need a coach, business consultant, or mentor?  Did you know there was a difference?  My personal experience as a multi-business owner with a graduate certificate in new venture management provides me the skills necessary to assist you with all your business needs. Each ‘hat’ that I wear has a different role and purpose that will help you to achieve your business and personal goals.

COACH

As a business coach, I will help you to develop and improve your existing business and marketing skills. We will brainstorm together to define your purpose and business goals. We will also work to identify any behaviors or barriers that may be preventing you from making immediate progress in your business.

CONSULT

As a consultant, I work as your personal business expert. I analyze every detail of your business, create an actionable business and marketing plan, and teach you new skills and business strategies to help you achieve your goals. A lot of this work is done by me behind the scenes so that you can focus on the areas of your business where you excel.

MENTOR

As a mentor, I have a deeply personal interest in you and your business success—I become a friend who cares about your long-term development and overall work/life balance. Overtime, we will revisit and tweak areas of your business as needed. I will also work as your accountability partner to ensure you succeed.

INCREASED PROFITS, INCREASED CONFIDENCE

  • Hiring Rachel was one of the best decisions I made for my business in 2015. The content she teaches is super easy to understand and apply. Switching to IPS totally made sense for me and my business and I have seen so much growth in my profits and my confidence while spending less hours behind the computer. I was averaging under $400.00 per boudoir client and now I am over $1,000.00 on most. Two weeks ago I had a client spend over $2,000.00 and it was all because of the methods Rachel teaches. I am forever grateful for her and what she has taught me.

INVESTMENT

FULLY INVESTED

What makes me different?  Every client that I work with becomes an extension of me and my brand.  I am very selective of the clients whom I take on because I want to ensure that you will succeed.  I would never invest in something that didn’t have a solid return on investment, and I would not want anything less for you.  For this reason, I ask that you complete the application process and that we have a pre-consultation prior to starting your business transformation.

If for any reason I feel you will not get a timely return on your investment, I will give you an action plan to complete and a later date to reapply.  YES, you read that right, I will turn away your money if I don’t think you’re ready.  That’s what makes me different from other courses and coaches. I am fully invested in you and your success and I want nothing more than for you to achieve your goals.

  • One year ago, I was overwhelmed, overworked, exhausted, and hadn't made a profit since starting my photography business 5 years before. I was making $150-$350 per session for hours and hours of work. I came to Rachel for her full business coaching and it was the best decision I ever made! She dove deep into my business, surfaced the critical issues and then developed an action plan to tackle them. A year later, I am turning a profit (my sales are in the thousands!), my customer experience is refined and I have plenty of quality time with my family. I look forward to working with Rachel again for improvements on my business.

  • So many of us have the plan to take our businesses to the next level in 2017. I sparked up a conversation with Rachel Farner and she informed me I could hire her to mentor me through this adjustment and guide me in my pricing. Hello take my money lol. If anyone else is struggling with pricing prints and still staying marketable in your area, give this little lady a shout. She's a true asset.

  • On cloud9 right now after a call with a new client. This is my very first call talking about IPS and why I love it for my clients. Was I nervous? Hell yeah! Always been S&B so I was scared I wouldn't have the right responses to their questions. All I could say is I couldn't have done it without the mentoring from Rachel! She helped me calm my nerves and provided me with the questions to ask.

  • was up till 1am after a mentoring session with Rachel Farner, so much to think about! Rachel was so awesome at sharing everything she knows, giving me questionnaires and spreadsheets that got me to really think about my goals and where I want to go, and answering questions. She was more than prepared and helpful and I would recommend her to anyone! It's nice to feel the support of others!

  • Usually, when I stay up 'till midnight I'm full of regrets, but Rachel Farner just blew my mind with my In Person Sales mentoring coaching session. Also, she went above and beyond with time, spreadsheets, templates, etc. She's worth way more than she's charging. I'm so stoked to start this new journey in photography.

  • Rachel Farner you are an amazing woman. You went above and beyond for me...a person you have never even met yet. We live in the same town on top of that. No other photographer I know would've done this.
