In 2002 she became one of the original stars of BBC’s ‘Dragons’ Den’. But despite a raft of high profile awards and TV fame, her business was forced into administration, before being bought out of administration by Rachel’s fellow Dragons Peter Jones and Theo Paphitis and continuing to trade today. Since then, with her book ‘Business Nightmares’, she’s become one of the world’s leading experts on the entrepreneurship journey. The timing of the book launch in May 2008 could not have been more fortuitous as in September 2008 the global banking system crashed triggering the current recession and many other business meltdowns. ’Business Nightmares‘ has since become the handbook for business survival for many struggling entrepreneurs. Rachel has spoken everywhere from Harvard University, TEDx, The Scottish Parliament, The Oxford Union Debating Society, The British Library and the Conservative Party Conference. Rachel’s latest business venture is SourceTV the new business operating platform for thought leaders, holistic professionals, alternative therapists and coaches which she co-created with Hollywood based TV/Video and Digital Marketing Expert Kevin Stein in 2013. SourceTV is now Rachel’s main business focus. Her latest book ‘Prosperity’ was published on 23 April 2016.
