In 2010, Rachel created Networking for No Reason. This organization puts on networking events in multiple markets based on fun and seemingly silly themes, such as Peanut Butter Lover’s month, for the PURE intention of getting people around a great group of good-humored folks to network for no good reason. With attendees upwards of 350 plus at these events, it is the perfect opportunity for local organizers to highlight their firm or professional organization within their community.
