You don’t need another business coach. You don’t need another course on how to create a course. You don’t need another webinar on how to host a webinar. What you do need? You need to handle your biz-nass. You need to find that magical place where the profits meet the bank account. To do that, you need clarity, confidence, focus, and execution.
You don’t need another business coach. You need Rodgers Collective.
We combine holistic business coaching (to get your mind right), with branding and copywriting services (to get your image right), and operational expertise (to get your systems right). We don’t just tell you what to do, we walk the road with you from idea to launch. We’ll tie your ass to the chair if we have to–whatever it takes to get your dreams into profitable formation.
Get creative. Quell your fears. Execute your dreams. We’ll help you make it all happen.
We work with seasoned entrepreneurs who are looking for a new direction or launching a new product or service, as well as with those just starting out in business. We work with rebels, rabble-rousers, and visionaries. (We don’t work with meanies, btw.)

We know how it feels to be the one breaking the mold with bold ideas and unprecedented goals that others dismissed as crazy. We also know how good it feels to make the impossible a reality, and to delight your customers and clients by doing the work for them that no one else had the vision to do.

Your Product Team:
Rachel is a business lawyer turned business coach, intellectual property strategist, creator of Small Business Bodyguard and all around badass.
Before Rachel was showing service business owners how to build powerful products, she was running a very non-traditional law firm that disrupted the legal industry by making it surprisingly easy (and damn fun) for innovative companies to work with experienced attorneys and get the legal help they need to do the crazy stuff they want to do.
In 2013, she created the Small Business Bodyguard: Cover Your Bases, Cover Your Assets, Cover Your Ass. This game-changing legal resource has been called “fun and engaging” by New York Times bestselling author Chris Brogan and a “graduate-level course on how to build a strong foundation for your business” by CEO of OurDeal, Kyle Durand.
Rachel is known for being an innovator and master of productizing services and creating high-quality, high profit products. SBB and the other legal kits she’s created have been transformative, generating over half a million dollars in revenue in just two years and serving 1,700 small businesses around the country.
Rachel has spoken on the subject of creating products, building solid service businesses and intellectual property in numerous venues including a class on CreativeLive, to MBA students at MIT and at various conferences including, InfusionCon.
Rachel received her J.D. from Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law in New York and her “MBA” the hard way, by building various successful ventures over the last 5+ years and learning from the best business minds out there. Before becoming an entrepreneur Rachel worked for various state and federal judges, a high-impact non-profit and Hillary Rodham Clinton.
When Rachel isn’t taking care of clients or creating new products, she enjoys baking in the kitchen (barefoot, with rosé in hand), lifting weights, juicing (the green kind, not the steroid kind), reading to her toddlers, being a “dance mom” and going on new adventures with her family (her favorite destination being France, of course!).

Tressa keeps us all in line as the Operations Manager and Launch Specialist for Rodgers Collective.
Tressa is the amazing Operations Manager and has been on our team for over 3 years. She handled the entire operations side of the creation and launch of Small Business Bodyguard. She is a project manager, back-office coordinator, people manager, and knows product development and marketing incredibly well. And, yes, she pulls it all off.
Tressa is one of those extremely organized, type A people who has a grasp on both the nitty gritty details and the big picture in ways that most people don’t. This has allowed her to systematize and streamline all of our business ventures over the years so we can provide amazing service and don’t have to work like dogs. Simply put: she’s a machine. Nay, she’s our machine and you will have the benefit of Tressa’s expertise if you choose to work with us.
That’s right, Tressa will be available to answer your questions and point you in the right direction when it comes to software, systems, hiring a team, managing a team, offering amazing customer service (without killing yourself), executing an amazing launch and all things operations.
Once upon a time, she trudged through traditional corporate work in management and finance before completing her MBA and moving on to innovative businesses (smart move, Ma’am). Tressa and her husband reside in New Mexico, but she’s always planning her next visit to England (thanks, BBC). When she’s not hard at work, she’s busy as a bee reading, playing, and being a princess with her two young daughters, or reading zombie books after they’ve gone to sleep.
Lauren is the boss of words around here. She makes sure we mean what we say and say what we mean (and that we do it in a way that makes you laugh).
Lauren is part intellectual property attorney, part copywriter, and overall creative genius. (She is also not at all modest and not too humble to admit that she wrote this shamelessly flattering bio herself. Hi, mom!).
Along with the rest of the Rodgers Collective team, Lauren uses her talent to identify and monetize products and programs, but she is at her most magical when helping our clients find the voice of their work. Lauren works directly with our clients to produce technical and promotional copy that is accurate, engaging, and full of personality. She’s an aggressive (but loving) editor and her insight and feedback will have your stuff lookin’ good and sounding right.
Lauren also contributes as a writer and editor to Rodgers Collective’s own products, email campaigns, and sales pages. On the legal side of things, Lauren advises on brand protection and is a fierce defender of intellectual property rights, handling legal disputes for a select number of clients (take that, opposing counsel!).
Lauren has been an entrepreneur, a contributing writer for Apartment Therapy, an international criminal lawyer, and a commercial choreographer. Some might find her varied background puzzling, but we find that it makes her a perfect fit for our team and the work we do.
Lauren has no idea where she lives these days, but it’s probably somewhere between Helsinki, London, and NYC. Wherever she is, you can be sure that she’s drinking coffee, sneaking into a contemporary dance class, and assaulting social media with never-ending photos of Otis, her beloved Boston Terrier.
Dediako is the ‘money guy’ here at Rodgers Collective P.C.
Dediako is the master of money around these parts (official title = Operations Coordinator). He makes sure the cash flows and the taxes get paid. He’s also our resident tech wizard saving us from our technical snafus.
Before coming on board this crazy ship, Dediako was a Field Technician for Verizon and ran a real estate development business on the side (how’s that for a side hustle?). But his proudest gig yet was a stay-at-home dad for his two toddlers.
Dediako has a Bachelor’s in Economics from New York University and a Master’s from the School of Life (just kidding about that last one).
Yes, for those of you with a keen eye for last names, Dediako is Rachel’s husband and she may or may not have used the promise of baked goods to lure him into bringing his hustling and management skills to the Rodgers Collective table.
