Rachel Friend, M.A. is a mindset coach, relationship expert, and college instructor with a Masters Degree in Human Communication. In this in-depth conversation, Rachel shares her mission to help you learn how to harness the power of your perspective by using her S.H.I.F.T. method so that you can get out of your own way, make peace with your past, and connect more deeply with yourself and others in your life. I met Rachel at conference we were both speaking at, and instantly connected with her message. We even went on to co-host a livestream/podcast series titled “Talking shiFt with Rachel & Tom” during the first year of the pandemic. This was our very first conversation back in May of 2020, and definitely beneficial for anyone who “communicates” with others on a regular basis… don’t miss it!
