Rachel Allan has been a business owner for 12 years, and a mum for 51/2 years. On her business-and-baby journey she has learned a lot about life, business and herself. While it has not always been an easy ride, it has definitely been fulfilling. She feels a strong calling to share her discoveries (and the wisdom of other parents and experts) with you in this new book, When Business Meets Baby. Rachel's inspiration is her vibrant daughter Sophie, who has her own busy little life with school, dancing and swimming. Rachel is honoured to be Sophie's mum, and she is also an author, integrated marketer, entrepreneur and property investor. From 2007 she has shared her journey with her business and life partner Craig. Rachel's business, Visionary, has evolved from event management to marketing and ebusiness. Visionary is a leading consultancy servicing micro and medium-sized businesses in Ballarat, Geelong and Melbourne. During her pre-business career, Rachel worked in government, small and medium-sized businesses and not-for-profits in both Australia and Scotland. When not she's not working in her business, Rachel loves nothing more than hanging out with Sophie, Craig and Lilly (the dog), going camping, and indulging in the latest episode of Outlander (with a glass of wine in hand).
