I didn’t know I was looking for Rachel until I found her. In an abyss of irrelevant PMP® blogs, Louder Than Ten’s stylish and snarky site felt familiar. Rachel’s ability to understand, encourage, and support my challenges made her feel like my life coach and work spouse in one. Wherever you are, Rachel truly connects with you, taking the time to consider your challenges and share her strengths. Hey DPMs—this is one asset you better prioritize!

Before working with LT10, I felt like we were always struggling with timelines and expectations… we had contracts but items would always come up during projects that weren’t clearly out of scope, so we were doing a lot of extra uncompensated work. I wanted to tighten up our project management process so that the client experience was as good as the final product we provide.

Rachel strikes the perfect balance between project manager and teacher; she knows her stuff and can communicate it in an unforgettable way. I first heard her speak at a conference in 2013 and I can still quote most of that talk today. Since then, we have collaborated many times—as co-presenters, consultants, and writers—and each time she has produced a bit of magic that sticks in people’s brains and changes the way they think and act.

Rachel’s approach to project management is a critical aspect to operating a successful design biz. Potentially the most important aspect considering your core job in design is to manage successful projects for clients. Louder Than Ten asks the right questions, drills into the impact of solid relationships, and works into the core of running awesome projects. It also helps that they are rad people–the type that you want to collaborate with and have working with your team.

Then this book’s dedicated to you.
