Episode 25: Creating Meaningful Relationships and Eliminating Small Talk with Rachel Greenwald







Brief summary of show:


This week on the podcast, I sit down with my go-to on all things relationships, Rachel Greenwald.

Rachel is one of the most successful matchmakers in the United States, responsible for 857 marriages in the past 20 years. She is the New York Times bestselling author of “Find a Husband After 35: Using What I Learned at Harvard Business School”.


Listen in as we talk about:

  • Rachel’s analogy of Penthouse people vs. basement people

  • How to decide which relationships you want to invest time and energy into

  • Tips to connect deeply with people virtually instead of in person

  • How to eliminate small talk and have more meaningful conversations


She has been featured widely in the media as a relationship expert, including The Today Show, CNN, The New York Times, Fortune Magazine, NPR, and many more. Her books have been translated into 18 languages worldwide, and have been optioned by Paramount Studios for a Hollywood film.

Rachel now uses the tactics she learned in the love business to help business leaders improve their professional relationships at work. She is currently doing an Executive Fellowship at Harvard Business School, and has conducted relationship coaching sessions at organizations like Google, Estee Lauder, Morgan Stanley, YPO groups, Stanford University and others.

She teaches two different workshops regularly at Canyon Ranch Spa in Tucson: one program is called “Relationships That Work” for executives, and the other program is called “Post-Divorce Bootcamp” for singles.
