  • Rachel wanted to get a job in advertising and instead got hired to be a receptionist. It didn't stop her.
  • Telling mom and dad that you're dropping out of law school because you're now a receptionist. 
  • Rachel's well-plotted rise to power in becoming the American Advertising Federation, Orange County President.
  • How sports taught Rachel to be competitive and to work hard for her goals. 
  • Learning to say yes to opportunities and making smaller clients work for you instead of letting go of that work and the client. 
  • The concept of Gigasavvy and how Rachel is happy to be the conductor of the creative symphony. 
  • Born, raised and fighting for Orange County. Rachel has a strong commitment to her home. 
  • Learning how to work with your competition and brokering a deal amongst former career enemies. 
  • Rachel Svoboda is the face of female empowerment in the workplace. However, her type A personality goes out the window when she walks through the front door and becomes mommy.

    Rachel Svoboda & Eric Morley Shop Talk

    • Why Rachel and Eric see the importance in spending their time and resources on community through the Orange County American Advertising Federation. 
    • Learning how to work with your competition instead of working against them. 
    • How Mark's job is a scam because most people are pretty much the same as one another.

    • Where do Rachel and Eric find their freelancers? And what do they look for in future partnerships?

    • Get out into your community and get involved and most likely get hired.
