Today we’d like to introduce you to Rachel Johnson.
Hi Rachel, thanks for sharing your story with us. To start, maybe you can tell our readers some of your backstories.
My name is Rachel “Rae Denise” Johnson. I’m an Entrepreneur, Brand Strategist & Visionary. A Hometown Girl, Making a Legendary Impact. I’m a native of Northwest Baltimore, MD.
I founded my company Limitless Consulting Solutions LLC., back in 2014, but it wasn’t until 2019 that it truly came to life. Limitless is a boutique branding agency specializing in Brand Strategy, Business Solutions, Graphic Design, Idea Strategy, Social Media Management/Strategy, and Website Development. It was birthed from my passions: branding, marketing, and helping business owners identify and cultivate their “WHY.”
Before venturing out on my own, I served as an Administrative Coordinator to the Chairman of the Board and later a Communications Coordinator at the NAACP National Headquarters in Baltimore, MD. I went there fresh after graduating college; when I got there, I loved it! It honestly taught me so much. I remember on December 29, 2018, writing down my goals for 2019. I wrote, “I want to be gone from the NAACP by December 2019 and operating Limitless as a full-time entrepreneur”. Well, exactly 30 days later, I learned the NAACP was doing a massive lay-off. I could either reapply for my job or be laid off. While many others were devasted, stressed, and crying, I felt so much PEACE! I knew it was a “God Move” and an answered prayer! While it was 12 months ahead of the schedule, I set for myself. I knew it was my time.
I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey has been a smooth road?
Nothing worth having comes easy. I truly believe that you’re doing something wrong if you don’t hit any hiccups. Like I said earlier, it’s been 3 years since I walked away from a 9-5 to live my prayers as a full-time entrepreneur. If I can be fully transparent, I prayed for this moment! In these 3 years, self-doubt set in 3 times, and I went back to work with different companies but was never comfortable because I knew what my prayer was. Every day of entrepreneurship is not glitz and glam. It’s full of sleepless nights to meet deadlines, but the reward is worth it. I can stand boldly and say I’m living a life of manifested prayers, hard work, and dedication.
Alright, so let’s switch gears a bit and talk business. What do you do, what do you specialize in / what are you known for? What should we know?
Limitless Consulting Solutions, LLC., is a boutique branding agency specializing in Brand Strategy, Business Solutions, Graphic Design, Idea Strategy, Social Media Management/Strategy, and Website Development. The key to a successful business is branding.
What sets you apart from your competition?
I help my clients develop content and communicate their stories effectively to gain maximum visibility. As your brand strategist, I have become a part of your team. Your success is Limitless’ success! Limitless has successfully secured contracts with NAACP National Headquarters, HBCU Digest, First Mt. Olive Freewill Baptist Church, Congressman Kweisi Mfume, Howard Community College, and much more! I create a tailored approach that allows us to develop our client’s brand identity, increase their overall brand presence, and grow their digital footprint.
What sets you apart from others?
I truly believe the dedication given to our clientele sets Limitless apart from many other Brand Agencies. Each project is passion-driven because the greatest feeling is seeing our clients win. A client win is also a win for the brand because we love to see our clients go far. This isn’t “work.” It’s “PASSION.” I live in the “sweet spot” where Purpose and Passion collide! Helping clients identify and develop their brand identity to create content and communicate their stories effectively to gain maximum visibility.
What are you most proud of brand-wise?
Honestly, I have so many proud moments! But the one that always comes to mind is how much Limitless has grown amid COVID-19. As I mentioned, I started Limitless back in 2014. But it wasn’t until 2019 that I operated in it fully. While so many others were losing their job, I was fortunate enough not just to continue to grow my business but help other business owners across the United States grow theirs as well! It’s humbling for sure.
How do you define success?
For me, success means that I keep evolving. Be it in my personal life or business life. I don’t ever want to get too comfortable or become complacent. I want to evolve and achieve my goals continuously. When I left my 9-5 in 2019, my mantra in life became Legendary Takes Longer because I knew I didn’t want a “microwave success quick fizzle” business. I wanted to create a LEGENDARY brand from which my great-great-great grandchildren could benefit. That’s where my hustle and drive were birthed from.
