Client Spotlight: Rachel Wainwright
We’re bringing the Client Spotlight back, and who better to kick it off with than Rachel Wainwright! This girl ALWAYS has a smile on her face along with something nice to say about something or someone. She’s just a beautiful soul, and I really enjoy just being around her. She also happens to have great style and a weakness for good clothes. Needless to say, she’s in good company when she walks in the door at Council! It didn’t take much to coax Rachel to come in and share what a day in her life is like. Get ready to feel like a bum, because I assure you she’s running circles around us - all while smiling that big Rachel smile!

A Day in the Life of Rachel…
6:30am - Wake up and get some work done before starting the day.
Glass of water - no coffee, no breakfast.
7:00am - Workout on my Peleton or do some cardio/running.
8:30am - Get to the office at GFL, make sales calls, pull building permits, go on construction sites, knock on doors, etc.
12:00pm - Lunch at one of my favorite spots downtown, then meet mom to do Sweet Water Home stuff; rugs, antiques, interior design jobs..
1:30pm - Back to work; run around trying to solve client issues, put out fires.
5:00pm - Head home and work on all things Farm Girl Fresh, tidy the house, do laundry, get Instacart & put groceries up - (Who has the time to grocery shop with 3 jobs?!)
6:00pm - Go on a walk. Payton gets home around 6:30pm.
7:30pm - Cook dinner almost every night - usually fish & veggies.
9:00pm - Watch a show; usually The Sopranos, or a series. Yellowstone is a favorite. I’m counting the minutes until the new season airs!
Go to bed around 10pm.
A little bit about Rachel’s side hustles - yes, plural!
Farm Girl Fresh started as a way to get fresh peaches (and sometimes strawberries, pecans, and apples) into the hands of customers the very day they’re picked. You can’t get more fresh than that. Payton is the largest peach farmer in the Southeast with Taylor Orchards, so he knows a thing or two about peaches! They offer local pickup in Columbus, GA, or they can ship your produce anywhere in the US! Follow them on Instagram at @shopfarmgirlfresh, or visit their website at www.shopfarmgirlfresh.com.
Sweet Water Home is an interior design business that Rachel started with her mom, offering design services as well as gorgeous rugs, lamps, and antiques. They started in October 2020 as an answer to the Covid blues and a fun way to get their creative juices flowing! Follow them on Instagram at @shopsweetwaterhome and get ready to gush over some luxe interiors!
All of this work she’s doing definitely calls for some major play time, and she knows just how to get her fun, relaxing weekends in. Rachel & Payton head down to the beach every other weekend. They love to fish, and even fish in tournaments where they sleep on their boat 200 miles offshore for the weekend. Aptly so, their family boat is named “Done Pickin'."
I’m so thankful that Rachel found Council and has been a loyal customer since we opened. She knows the value of supporting small, local businesses because she is one - or two! Thank you, Rachel, for your support and friendship! We are grateful for you and are so happy to know you!
