Rachael B.
Hometown: Buderim on the beautiful Sunshine Coast, Australia

"I am a single mum of three beautiful little boys, including 3-year-old twins. I've written eight best-selling books and am now working on my ninth. YAY! My office is at home on my property so I can work around my boys. It's very busy but also very rewarding to be a mom working from home. I LOVE helping other people! I've been a mentor now for about 10 years and love it! So when I'm not writing a book or at an event, I help women write their own books, start businesses, achieve a happier life balance and prosper from doing the things that they're passionate about. It's so fantastic to be able to help people get clear on what they want and to help them put a plan together that changes their life—it's truly heartwarming and makes my soul sing! I LOVE a good party, a bit of a boogie and some fun and laughs with my girlfriends, but I also like to keep fit too."

What is your favorite OWN show?
"Super Soul Sunday"—LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!

What are your three favorite things?
My three favorite things are being with my three sweet little boys, spending time with my family and friends, and my work: inspiring women to lift and be all that they can be through mentoring them.

What would your superpower be?
To give people who are struggling a picture, an insight into what their lives could be if they only believed in themselves.

What is the first thing you do when you wake up?
The first thing I do is visualize my intention of what my day, my week, my year will be and feel myself living it.

What is the last thing you do before you go to bed?
The last thing I do is practice gratefulness and think about all the things I am appreciative of.

What is the one item you can't live without, and why?
My phone. It has my whole business schedule in it, my most treasured pictures and funny movies of my children; it's my link to all the most important people in my life. I also download all my ideas into it and things to do. It's the only real tool I depend on to help me manage a busy and big life so I can concentrate and focus without the stress of trying to remember all I need to do.

What do you like that most people dislike?
Nothing that I know of unless you count Vegemite (if you're not from Australia), but everyone in Australia loves Vegemite!!!!

What are you proudest of?
In am proudest of my little boys. Their very being is my legacy and also my inspiration to be and do better every single day. I am so proud of them and love my three little beautifuls. I'm also super proud of my latest book, Savvy, and love my little quotes throughout it.

Who is your hero?
My children, who inspire me daily to be better and all that I can be, thereby making me a positive role model and guide in their lives and the lives of others.

What is your biggest pet peeve?
Judgmental people who have opinions (and no compassion or empathy) for others when they have no insight into their lives. Everyone has a story, and everyone has the opportunity to be a positive influence in other people's lives.

What would you like to learn to do?
Direct a TV show. I would LOVE to experience that and see how creative I could be within the process. I think I'd be great at it!!

What are you particularly bad at that your friends tease you about?
Skipping. My exercise class thinks it's hysterical, but I bought a skipping rope, and I PROMISE you I will get better! :-)
