I’m Rachel, the founder of The Confused Millennial (TCM), millennial blog consultant / coach, and Forbes contributing writer.

#TCMillennial is a community for other confused millennials to share, connect, learn, and grow together. I highly encourage readers to reach out, request a post, or ask me anything. The goal with TCM is to help other confused millennials navigate the “adult world” (finance, career, business, etc.) while still captivating what fuels our soul (Netflix, traveling, and awesome lifestyle products). Think of it as your perfect place for balancing work-life, adulting-chilling, and personal-professional growth.

The content on here is designed to help you live a balanced, purposeful, and fulfilling life.




My story in a nutshell:

I went to college, got my degree – went to grad school, got another degree – landed my dream job earning almost 10k more per year than colleagues that had been there for two years – only to feel totally miserable. I fell into a total quarter life crisis, and at a complete loss when it came to my future.

In fact, I was such a Debbie Downer that I got fired for being so miserable to work with. Always the Type-A overachiever, the day I got fired, I landed a new job… only to get fired again three weeks later.

After that I spent way too many hours watching Netflix, chowing down on good #eeeeeats (if you’re a foodie not familiar with this # I seriously encourage you to hop over to Instagram and check it out!), and in a tailspin freaking out about what I am doing with my life.

*Okay, maybe I still do all of those things over two years later*

BUTTTT, between Netflix and pizza binges, I decided to start TCM to help all the other Netflix junkies, hopped up on caffeine, try to figure out this whole “adult” thing.

I made a lot of mistakes in my twenty-something years and I have looked at each of them as an opportunity to learn a life lesson and grow. I hope this blog inspires readers to do the same and find a community of other confused millennials to cheer them on.
