THE PATTERN™ MASTERCLASS
Entrepreneur, Business Consultant, Nonprofit Leader, and Woman of Faith
You have business plans and dreams, but simply can’t find the time to devote to one. more. task.
You have wondered how to grow a business without sacrificing your personal obligations.
You have a full life, yet know there is a passion project waiting to come to fruition if you had some clear steps to bring it to life.
You have a job that doesn’t connect with your God-given purpose. Or worse – a job that brings with it a sense of guilt – an inner knowing that somehow your actions are out of alignment with what you value most.
In many ways, we modern women have lost our way. We have so many choices available, yet so many demands on our time. On one hand, total freedom. On the other, impossible constraints.
The Pattern™ Masterclass is a collection of Biblical wisdom shared with a modern understanding of women’s lives and the marketplace, developed to clarify your purpose-driven business vision and build it in balance with your busy life.
The Guidelines are inspired by the Wife of Noble Character from the ancient Book of Proverbs. This renowned woman is described in Chapter 31 as diligent, confident and generous. She is a wife, mother, homemaker, investor, mentor and philanthropist. She is also a successful entrepreneur – a key life choice that allowed her to fully leverage her talents and bring prosperity to her family and blessing to her community.

Hello! I'm Rachel Rose Nelson – an entrepreneur, business consultant, ministry leader and woman of faith dedicated to helping you build the purpose-driven enterprise God has called you to lead.
I'm the Founder of Her Worth International, a Christian ministry working worldwide for women’s economic freedom and also serve on the Board of the Freedom Business Alliance to help scale job opportunities for survivors of human trafficking.
I am passionate about helping women build strong biblical foundations under their businesses and watching them flourish. My current projects range from the vocational training of economically vulnerable women in Haiti to coaching business and ministry leaders around the globe.
Before stepping into leadership development, I worked for 20 years as a creative director and business consultant for companies large and small. My clients and their products have been featured on the New York Times Best Sellers List, The Oprah Winfrey Show, Oprah’s O list, InStyle Magazine, People Magazine, and more. Their products are carried in Whole Foods, Target, and other retail stores.
I hold a Bachelor of Science in Graphic Communication from California Polytechnic University, a Master of Arts in Ministry Leadership from Portland Seminary, and live with hmyhusband and three kids just outside Portland, Oregon.
"I think it’s wonderful that you’ve put together these guidelines. I wish I would have had them when I started 4word! There are some where I’ve dog-eared the pages, because even seven years out we’ve got room to improve. We’re always learning. But the great thing is when you go about building a purpose-driven organization you have the chance to create something life-changing for others."
"Working with Rachel is not only an experience in creativity, it is also a deep dive into the true goals and motivations of your project – I swear she must have a degree in psychotherapy hidden somewhere in her toolkit. She is talented, patient, generous and a great pleasure to work with."
"Rachel combines her creative skills and writing ability with a keen sense of marketing. I have the greatest respect for Rachel's ability to understand the vision of any project."
"I am so in love with every single thing you have done. You are an angel in my life, on my shoulder, in my heart."
It’s both! This course is a unique combination of biblical study and reflection plus practical business implementation advice. Think of it as Christian Executive Coaching, designed to bring alignment between your faith, life and work. The video for each Guideline opens and closes in prayer. Each one is inspired by biblical principles and features relevant Bible verses. A few address mindset shifts that can only be accomplished through partnering with the Holy Spirit. But the focus is on equipping women to take action, grow their business for maximum impact, and maintain balance in every area God has called them to focus on.
It may be helpful to also share what this course is NOT. It is not a daily devotional to inspire you but leave you without actionable steps for creating transformation. It is also not a course that gives you step by step marketing plans, or shows you how to finance your startup, or interpret financial reports. We believe this course will transform your mind and your business in ways that come from this unique, category-defying combination.
Absolutely! If you are feeling nudged to start something new then this Masterclass will give you the wisdom you need to start well. It will also give the practical framework and product development process to make your dreams more actionable.
Probably so! It will very likely be enlightening to evaluate your established business through the lens of biblical wisdom, and see which areas might shift as a result. While there are many resources on the how-to’s of business building, this Masterclass focuses on aligning your business with faith-based principles to structure your business for both balance and impact. If you sense the potential to grow in these areas, please enroll. If you have all that dialed in, it may be safe to pass. But then again, we’d still love to have you in our community of like-minded entrepreneurs!
Yes. While the primary audience for this course is business owners, most if not all of the Guidelines apply to both for-profit and non-profit enterprises.
Each Guideline features a short video ranging from 5 to 15 minutes. This is followed by personal reflection in the form of completing a VisionSheet (our version of a Worksheet, but one completed while inviting God to speak into the answers). So each Guideline takes about 20-40 minutes to complete. With 12 Guidelines that means a total investment of about 6 hours. You will have lifetime access to the online course. So you can complete it at any time and at any pace that works for you.
Probably so. Granted: you will get maximum value by being able to engage in some or all of the LIVE components. But you will be able to access all the LIVE content even if you miss it. You will also have lifetime access to The Pattern online course, so you can go through it when you are able, and review it all as needed.
If you are not fully satisfied, feel free to contact us with your completed Vision Sheets, for a refund of your full payment. How can we make such a guarantee? We have packed so much value into The Pattern™ that we know you will be happy.
Training, mentoring and community are vital components of your journey as a faith-centered entrepreneur. While executive coaching alone can cost $300+ per hour, The Pattern™ is designed to make incredible support accessible on a budget. Don't go it alone!
