Rachel Blaufeld

Founder and Writer, Back’nGroove Mom

Rachel Blaufeld is a Freelance Writer and Founder of the blog, Back’nGrooveMom, a lifestyle blog on the intersection of building a business and raising a family and everything in between where NO topic is off limits. Originally a personal blog detailing her own adventures of inventing a product and starting a business, Rachel discovered she had a wide audience of women looking for tips and conversation on remaining relevant while growing a family and a business and/or just wanting to find themselves again when kids became school-age.

Growing her own little piece of internet real estate entirely though networking online and connecting organically on Twitter, Facebook, and Linked-In, Rachel often shares networking and tips for navigating the internet. Lending her opinion on the importance of engaging online and blogging for small business, Rachel occasionally blogs on blogging. As a true hybrid between a parenting and a business-savvy blog, Rachel and Back’nGrooveMom quickly expanded to be featured in Tory Johnson’s Spark and Hustle book, on TV and radio, and the pages of Fast Company and The New York Times. Rachel also writes regularly at The Huffington Post, Modern Mom, Gal Time, Four Seasons Resorts, StartUpNation and CorpNet.Com.

Rachel can be found providing brand influence while continuing to be an outpost at the crossroads of being a mom and business owner. When not writing or hiding behind her computer, Rachel can be found watching basketball with her sons.
