Rosanne Cash once said that "The key to change is letting go of fear." That quote has really resonated with me throughout my adult life. My understanding is that change is inevitable, and it's what I do with that opportunity that really matters.
So much of this year for Rachel and Rodger has been about growth. Not only did their family grow and evolve, but their business is changing and growing exponentially. That being said, I knew coming to work for the Rachel Zoe that it would be a challenge to find my place in a company going through such a major evolution.
When I finally got the opportunity to join Rachel on the Elle photo shoot, I was so excited to try my hand in styling. However, I realized a lot about myself and my future that day. I recognized that the passion I have and feel for interior and design and furniture was not organically there for styling. The fuel that drives you when doing something you truly love. . .wasn't there. I also realized that Rachel was not going to need another assistant stylist, which was a harsh but clear realization.
