Rachel Pedersen was using social media to bring customers to her hairdressing chair, but never really imagined it would turn into a full-time business of its own.

One of her hairdressing clients owned a popular restaurant chain, but was struggling with online marketing and social media. Rachel offered to help this “small chicken restaurant,” which turned out to be Mrs. Winners, a popular fast food franchise in the Southeast.

While that chance encounter may not be repeatable, Rachel put herself in the position to succeed by having confidence in her abilities and saying “yes!” Years later, the restaurant remains her largest client and Rachel developed an interesting way of connecting with new customers via LinkedIn, which she shares in this episode.

Today her little social media management side hustle is a 6-figure business and she has even built a training program to help other people follow in her footsteps.

  1. I am glad I listened to this. I have waited for the longest to switch my LinkedIn profile to my new life as a personal finance writer/influencer. Database consulting sounds so legit, but at some point I have to make the transition and “burn the bridge.” I need to make it known who I am and what I do now. Thanks for this interview.

  2. I am so glad I had the opportunity to read PDF and this review. I am truly even more encouraged to go as a Marathon runner in my endeavor to have my own successful business. You are truly inspiring.
