Conversations with the Inspiring Rachel Greenebaum

Today we’d like to introduce you to Rachel Greenebaum.

So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
Writing and making a difference has always been important to me. I got a minor in journalism in college but I never had the fortitude to actually pursue it 100%. I’ve always been an actress and my love for promoting and telling a story is what ultimately led me to pursue social media. However, as I started I realized that I could incorporate everything I love, writing, fashion, and acting all into one. It took the Kate Spade challenge, something they did last year, to start my first blog post. I would write about every challenge that I did and slowly I began to gain confidence in myself and my writing. I realized that if I could do it, others who are secretly wishing, could learn from me, and find the courage within themselves to do it as well. I write about fashion but I try to also bring confidence and write so that every body shape, style, and everyday woman could relate to me.

Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
I love the quote “nothing worth having comes easy.” It has been a bumpy road from second guessing myself to trying to find my voice in this whole ‘blogging’ world. I think the major struggle is realizing that you are not everyone else. In a world where you’re constantly seeing beautiful people, bodies, homes, you start to loose who you are. However, I had to realize that I am different, my style is different, but that’s okay. I think once you recognize your niche and what you want to do, making it completely you, it’s uplifting. Of course this is like a job for me but it’s also a love and a passion so I want to make it as authentic as possible. My advice for other women is be YOU because you are as lovely, as real, and as fantastic as anyone else. If you write others will read.

What should we know about Rachel Moretti? What do you guys do best? What sets you apart from the competition?
I could be considered in fashion. A lot of my posts talk about everyday wear and how women can dress for different occasions within a budget. I talk about brands such as Kate Spade but also mention places where I shop daily, like Target. However, I also write about self-love and how us as women should always believe in ourselves. I sometimes attend events especially if they are geared towards women. I went to Gals That Brunch, which I got to meet such wonderful and powerful women. It made me realize that being a blogger, socializing with other women, and finding our voice is one of the best parts of our job. Also, my acting comes into play a lot because in each spread I become a different actor, I play a different part, and it allows me to reach out to so many different people along the way. Currently, I am working on a fantastic project, but, I can’t speak too much about it. I guess you will have to come back and find out more!

Looking back on your childhood, what experiences do you feel played an important role in shaping the person you grew up to be?
I think my acting/modeling definitely helps me a lot. I traveled quite often with my acting and being in front of a different camera, or stage, helped me to balance communicating with different people. It also allowed me to see the good and the ugly of being on camera and scrutinized by everyone. I saw the people at their best, being on stage or on camera, doing what they absolutely loved. Yet, I also saw the ugly, the feeling of not being pretty or good enough. Those emotions are the reality and I want to shed light on it. I want women and people in general to know that everyone feels that. It’s okay to feel that but to remember that you rise above your insecurities and through that you become who you are meant to be.
