Podcast: Rachel Klaver talks career change


Just a few years ago Rachel Klaver was a talented sales professional at the top of her game. In a story that will be familiar to many, this also meant she was travelling a lot, missing her family and suffering from serious stress. But she was kicking goals and she knew her employer valued her so she pushed on. Then one day her employer asked her to take a pay cut, so they could use her earnings to grow their business.

Yes. They wanted her to take a pay cut! Reality hit quickly. She realised she had been sacrificing her family life and her health for someone else’s business.

In this podcast, Rachel explains to Elise Stevens how this became the catalyst for starting her own business, and why she’s never looked back.
