RACHEL SERVICE'S life changed when SHE realised work was killing HER.
Rachel spent her twenties in a haze of anxiety, depression, disordered eating and burnout.
When she was 22, she passed out in the bathroom on the way to work. The ulcers which developed in her mouth saw her bed ridden and unable to eat for weeks.
At 24, she couldn't stand from overworking and adrenaline leaving her body, after working 24 / 7 for months, skipping meals and hitting the gym at all hours. She was later diagnosed with anxiety and depression and adrenal fatigue from over working and was ordered to bed rest for six weeks, unable to work.
At age 27, she was sleeping at work trying to make deadlines in a bid to impress her superiors. When she was made redundant; she was relieved. Having skipped meals and social occasions months; she was absolutely exhausted.
A MOMENT FROM BEYONCÉ, CHANGED EVERYTHING.
Tired, fed up and having gone through a break up, Rachel went to see the one person who would know how to heal her: Grammy Award winning artist, Beyoncé, in concert. As Beyoncé played her greatest hits at the Barclays Centre in Brooklyn NYC, Rachel broke down and sobbed through the entire audience. It was in the subway, moments after the concert when Rachel caught her own reflection and realised: if she couldn't enjoy a Beyoncé concert: something had to give.
Rachel turned the beat around when she starting blogging her journey on addressing her demons as the "Happiness Concierge". These days, Rachel is now the founder of what she calls a kick ass training company which helps others ace their work and lives: all around the world.
Happiness Concierge is now a global training company, delivering workshops, talks and training programmes for workplaces such as Powercor, Reserve Bank of Australia AGL, Reserve Bank of Australia, WINK Models, RMIT University, meet-ups, and networks across Australia, Asia Pacific and North America.
Happiness Concierge Trainers are personally trained by Rachel and are selected for their charisma, positive attitude, drive and willingness to make other people feel at ease and learn in their comfort zone, in a learning style designed to bring out the best in them.
