Today's special guest is TV personality, podcaster, and the first black lead of the Bachelorette franchise, Rachel Lindsay.

A self-described “risk taker with boundaries,” tune in as Rachel gets human2human about relationships she was in before The Bachelor, how writing her book Real Love allowed her to explore the “what ifs” of life, and how she is working through and preparing to be a mother soon.

So if you feel like you’re at a crossroads in life, feeling unfulfilled, or just have this insatiable appetite for more but can’t quite put your finger on it, this episode is for you!


  • What part of Rachel’s story is told through her book?
  • The desire to please and the fear of the unknown
  • How fear is the root of all evil
  • Holding on, even when you don’t know why
  • “Giving myself the permission to forgive myself”
  • Why women need to stop “fixing” men
  • Finding your authentic voice and the power of saying no


“I was scared of everything. Because for so long I had lived the life I was supposed to live, I did what I was supposed to, got the job I said I would, and dating the guy who checked all the boxes.” - Rachel Lindsay

“Not every risk that you take always results in success. But the reward when it does, it's just so great.” - Rachel Lindsay

“Would you rather live in a place of knowing that hey, it didn't work out or would you rather live in a place of wondering - I wonder what would happen?” - Rachel Lindsay
