Ginger Of The Week: Rachel

Rachel is our #GingerOfTheWeek this week! Rachel is one proud ginger and here is a little bit about why: “Before my grandma died, we were the only red heads in our family. Having red hair is unique, and it reminds me of her. She always used to tell me, when I was younger, how special I am to have red hair, so in honor of my her, I’m embracing it more than ever.”

What do I do for a living and how can I travel everywhere?

I am constantly asked by family, friends, new people I meet, etc. what I do for a living or how do I travel everywhere and that I am so lucky, blah, blah…

So when being asked what I do for a living I started saying Jack of all Trades (or Jackie of all Trades would be more appropriate I guess) because I do all kinds of different things and people get confused when I list 7 things.

The real answer? I do social media management for small businesses and startups, I book corporate travel all over the world for a corporate agency, I do accounting and finance management for a web design agency, I help with event management on site with an event company, I write proposals and agreements for a marketing agency, and I do on location photography. Lastly, I am building my own brand online of Ginger-ness here at Ginger Talk.

The important thing here is that I have learned through different people that I can do many things and all still work from home, wherever home might be, and so can anyone else. Right now home is in Austin, TX and as of the summer it will be in San Diego, CA. For the next 5 years Dima and I plan to live all over the world and experience life. Traveling and meeting new people and constantly experiencing new things and looking outside of the box has been by far the best knowledge and growth for me. Especially compared to the 4 years I spent in college. So I encourage all of you to do your best to take advantage of whatever age you are now and TRAVEL, MOVE around, GET OUT of your comfort zone, LEARN new skills, and meet NEW people. It will be the best thing you ever did. I swear.

The Perfect Dresses for Redheads

It’s that time of year again with lots of holiday cheer which also includes holiday parties and New Years Eve festivities, work, family, friends, lots of reasons to get dressed up! Blondes and Brunettes generally don’t have to be as selective with their choice in holiday attire and cocktail dress colors because they generally always match their hair! Redheads on the other hand have to coordinate with their beautiful red loches AND it doesn’t help that all the models online showing off the dresses never have red hair! So here are the best colors to look for in a holiday or evening dress whether its for a work party, family holiday gathering or New Years Eve!

Gold
 Navy or Dark Blue

Black
 Emerald Green
