I LOOOOOOVE how honest she is about her jealousy and her ego!!!

I love that she is honest enuf to talk about how she feels since her husband came on board and how her success influenced him and the struggles he had gone thru. I love that they worked thru it and became stronger and didn't walk away from each other. These are the examples we NEED so desperately in society!!

Wow! Really one of your best interviews!! Thank you both so much!!

I resonate with this interview so much! Rachel could have been watching my life and had been talking about me. That’s how much she hit home and was on point for me and my life! 😅 I really needed to hear this!

Rachel is nearly half my age but I enjoy her energy and message. I've had her book on my wishlist since it came out ... today I'll buy! People resonate with raw honesty ... we can see through the BS. It would be great if Rachel's message rubbed off on Lewis ; ) Great interview - thanks Lewis.

As a man, insight into and amazing, successful, and powerful woman, priceless... Lewis, thank you for your authenticity and bringing out the authentic side of this guest.

Career Outcomes Matter 

I get that he skipped the line however he was your angel investor all those years before when you invested all your income in your business and he kept the family well-resourced. However, I totally get how it could feel like a bait & switch situation just when it was getting good. I also get how you felt slighted on that personal dev trip. The struggle is emotional and right now I guess I'm sharing my rational justifications for David's CEO spot...hopefully since this interview it's gotten easier....and your marriage stronger.

Rebecca Freiria 

Omg this video is sooo amazing! Thank you so much I needed it!! Thank you Rachel for being such an amazing and strong woman (and inspiring others) but yet still a woman/wife of God!

Wow, what a great interview and so much energy. I think she's unstoppable! Another great interview Lewis...

The only true way to happiness and success is to look to our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, not to ourselves. HE gives us our strength. If you need guidance, don't count on Rachel Hollis. Don't let her teach you how to DEMOTE GOD and DEIFY YOURSELF. There's a great book that I recommend, and guarantee will give you ALL the guidance you need: It's called the Bible. The last days are upon us, and HELL IS REAL. Don't get it twisted.

Philippians 4:13 I can do all things through Christ, who strengthens me.

  2 Peter 2:1-3 1But there were also false prophets among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you. They will secretly introduce destructive heresies, even denying the sovereign LORD who bought them-bringing swift destruction on themselves. 2Many will follow their depraved conduct and will bring the way of truth into disrepute. 3In their greed these teachers will exploit you with fabricated stories. Their condemnation has long been hanging over them, and their des

Heard a lot about the book and didn’t think I’d like it as much as I did, didn’t think I would resonate with it. Great read! I’ll join the thousands that highly recommend Girl, wash your face.

Casie Moe 

Yes, Rachel, where is that community of women?? That group that you can go shoot a gun with and connect in that way? Who can I be following (besides yourself and Mel Robbins, as a couple examples) that is the foundation of a group like that? Any suggestions?

Rachel Wamwere 

It's is amazing that you are very honest and open about feelings that we too would feel, were we in your situation! Acknowledging those feelings is everything

"You're allowed to have a dream for yourself that doesn't involve these babies" -- Absolutely love that! Her book is on my list to read this summer!!!!

Raquel Pereira 

I like her. I do not like her husbands vibe though


I hope she helps a lot of people. Her approach is akin to a very gentle introduction to feminism for women who continue to cling to traditional gender roles. Personally, I've always thought it was ridiculous (and funny!) when asked their occupation, some women proudly announce "I'm a Mom!", like congratulations are in order for successful breeding. (So what? Do you do anything else? Have any hobbies? Who are *YOU* exactly, besides a parent?) "Mommy" and "Wife" shouldn't be someone's sole identity, but sadly, for many women it is. Those women need to get out of the 1950's, refuse to be infantilized, and start on a path to self-realization. (Not to mention, you're dragging the rest of us down.)

Millisa Pedersen 

Great book! Really enjoyed it and Shared with many

Rhonda Loftis 

What I dont understand is she says to her "followers" "stop reaching out to a stranger on the internet...and fix your own life..." sounds a bit contradictory seeing how she puts herself out on the internet to "build" a following to make money...

elvan savkli 

Oh and Ilove how she talks. I myself love talking with fast energy and my brain works fast. However the culture i am coming from is not allowing to express myself this way. And after living in North America ,this is extremely hard for me. I ow envy her.

elvan savkli 

I am very happy being alone .But love is something else. I think we need to see ourselves from other people's eyes. I know it sounds like low self esteem but we need good feed back. Especially women.

I just keep going!

This is very interesting. I think people saw Rachel as giving them permission to do that stretch mark pics. I have stretch marks on my belly after having 3 kiddos but I for myself dont want to put my pics out there. I dont care what others think but for me I dont want to.

Rachel your signature your book your story

Soni Mar 

I wanted to like this podcast, but she wouldn't stop talking and wouldn't let him finish his sentences. Ahhh! Couldn't finish watching this.

Stephanie Bogart 

Her book reviews on Amazon were kind of meh. A lot of people said she says Christian but doesn’t act that way. I kind of get that now. I’m not sure where she is in her relationship with Jesus but I noticed she used the unequally yoked passage in a way I’ve never heard. I’ve always known it to mean (and heard it preached) that one person is a believer and the other isn’t. I did like her honesty though.

Addy Gendreau 

Wow this is so amazing

Daliah B. 

I can't seem to get through this book because of number of religious (Christian) references. It stops me from being able to relate

Allow yourself to dream Big:) be REAL!! Thank you so much Lewis I can't Thank you enough for letting us a part of your AMAZING Journey!!!

Vani Maduray 

Wow. The way she speaks so honestly takes my breath away. My mind is completely blown - the way she explains everything is so brilliant. Love this and I'm definitely going to be watching this several more times


I LOVE HER!! She is unapologetically her and I LOVE EVERY BIT OF IT!

Terri Lomax 

Amazing interview as always, Lewis. I really appreciate Rachel's transparency and authenticity. <3
