Today we have another post in the Student Success Stories series.
Why are we doing this? Glad you asked!
It’s because we want to feature people who took the 30 Days or Less courses and actually got serious about working on their freelance career. Every story in the series is a little bit different from the others. That’s because they’re real journeys, and everyone is on a different path.
This week we’re featuring Rachel Severns, a virtual assistant and email manager extraordinaire. We’ve had Rachel guest post on Horkey HandBook before, and her tips about managing emails actually landed multiple clients. In fact, four clients found her as a result of a guest post on this blog.
Here’s Rachel’s success story!

Hi, Rachel! Tell us a bit about yourself.
In my teens and twenties I traveled all over the world and couldn’t get enough. In my mid-twenties, I married a military man and we “settled down” which actually only meant we slowed down on the traveling abroad.
We have been lucky enough to live and travel all over the United States because the military never seems to move us short distances.
During those years, I worked as a bank teller in a credit union, mortgage processor through the low real estate rate boom of the early 2000s and an assistant in a financial advisor’s office. I learned a lot about the professional world – some things I liked and some that I didn’t like so much.
