The Confused Millennial...

Rachel started The Confused Millennial as a community for confused millennials to embrace who they truly are while learning and growing together. The goal with TCM is to help other confused millennials navigate this whole  #adulting thing (finance, career, business, etc.) while still captivating what fuels our soul (Netflix, traveling, and living that Instagrammable lifestyle). Her work has been featured in Forbes, Brit + Co, Monster, FastCompany, and many more.
