"On September 12, 2012, Rachelle gave a presentation to the American Business Women’s Association. Her presentation centered around the theory that positive efforts will bring positive results. She presented a very positive up beat attitude, which was infectious. I learned that sometimes you have to let go to move forward. In other words, the better the ingredients the better the dish will taste. I have been able to employ this both personally and professionally. I would highly recommend Ms. Smith’s presentation to any one or group which needs to a better recipe for success.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions."

(Holly Hengstebeck via Twitter)
"Rachelle provided invaluable business consulting, resulting in an executable action plan. She was professional, prepared and clearly an expert. I would recommend Rachelle and Positive Creative Infusion Consulting for anyone seeking marketing guidance.”
Holly Hengstebeck, MBA
“Rachelle provided her "Personal Branding & Networking for Career Changers" coaching session for me and it was exceptional. Rather than a "one size fits all" approach, Rachelle had me complete a questionnaire prior to the session so that it was tailored to me individually and my areas of interest. She is an energetic, creative and engaging expert who is very well read and provides a lot of excellent advice in a clear and organized format. Her empathy and desire to help others is readily apparent (she truly has a "heart for people"). I would encourage anyone who is interested in developing or improving their personal brand or networking skills to engage Rachelle Smith and Positive Creative Infusion Consulting.”

I look forward to more collaborating opportunities with her."

"Since the very beginning I was very impressed with her Spanish skills, I even thought Spanish was her native language. She can establish a business conversation with the same ease as a casual one, and her writing skills are also at the top. I’d definitely recommend Rachelle as a full bilingual (English-Spanish) executive."

“Rachelle has a great appreciation for other cultures and languages. As a native Spanish speaker (I was born and raised in Venezuela) Rachelle surprised me with her Spanish skills soon after we met. Her Spanish was impeccable, so much so that I had to ask twice where she was from. She was quick to start a conversation in Spanish and was able to discuss a great variety of topics with fluidity. I estimate we spoke Spanish 80 or 90 percent of the time. I hope my English will someday be as good as Rachelle's Spanish.”

"We need more women like Rachelle who are willing to step up to the plate, and sow seeds of hope, confidence and vision into future generations. She is the consummate mentor."
"Rachelle played a critical role in the revitalization of the NU Club, and was a key player in recruiting Detroit-area alumni to serve in a volunteer capacity on the Club's board. Were it not for her efforts in reaching out to those local alumni and energetically selling the benefits of Board Leadership and the importance of alumni-to-alumni connections, I would still be searching for capable volunteers. Rachelle has no doubt helped lead the way to the future success of this group."
Associate Director of Clubs, Northwestern Alumni Association
"Working with Rachelle to help rebuild the Northwestern Alumni Club of Metro Detroit has been an extreme joy. She is full of energy and always approaches things with a positive attitude. Her enthusiasm is contagious and she has been invaluable in recruiting fellow alumni to the board."
