Special Fresh Faces Feature: Lady Boss Blogger, Elaine Rau

Hey guys! 

I am coming at you guys with a very special Fresh Faces participant. Here, I have a phenomenal Public Relations powerhouse and inspirational blogger. She was so kind as to feature me on her platform and I am honored! This post is a thank you to her to show my gratitiude as well as inform my followers of what an awesome woman she is. This is her story.

Elaine Rau is the Founder and CEO of Her journey towards entrepreneurship wasn't easy, nor was it expected. After college Elaine worked in various fields and positions jumping from job to job until she realized that her skills and abilities aligned well with the wedding industry. With her newfound revelation she pursued any and all wedding positions, broke into the industry, got certified as a wedding planner, worked her way up the corporate ladder and held the title as National Wedding Sales Manager to one of the largest photo and video companies in America. Even though she loved her job, her lifestyle, and the amount of money she was making, she longed for something more. She desired for two things: 1) to be able to control how she spent her time and 2) to connect with her creative side again, having studied studio art in college - she needed a creative outlet. In addition to everything else, her fiance lived in Honduras and they had already been dating long distance for a year and she was getting tired of it. So she quit, packed up her life in Chicago into two suitcases and set off to Honduras and to her new life. 

It wasn’t the smoothest of transitions, having barely planned anything prior to leaving wasn’t the smartest move either. She didn’t realize how much it would cost upfront to move and ended up spending $10,000 within the first few weeks she was there towards buying a car, getting a house, and other fees due to settling in a new place.
She didn’t speak Spanish, didn’t have a job lined up, and considering that Honduras has an unemployment rate of 85% - she knew had to get creative. So one day after a month of being in Honduras, she was sitting at home thinking about what skills she had to offer (and how no one wanted them here) and how she could make the most of a sad jobless situation, she thought back to my previous experiences in Chicago and came up with a plan of action. she was going to start a blog and write about the people that she wanted to be herself, a female entrepreneur. The point of is to elevate women who don't get the media coverage they deserve and need as well as create an online community of women who share insight and expertise on their field with the other women through our Facebook Networking Group.

About Me

Hey there! Thanks for stopping by! I'm Calynn, 20x Award Winning businesswoman, media personality and former pageant queen (Miss United States Universe Tourism 2021, Miss World America Nation 2020). I started this blog when I was barely 15 years old in January 2011 as a supplement to my application to the retail business internship at the downtown Chicago Nordstrom mall! I stayed there for 3 years learning the fundamentals of everything fashion business from sales and marketing to media and modeling. This was a phenomenal foundation to my career as it gave me the rudimentary knowledge and competitive edge that I needed to be successful!  From there, I went on to college and obtained my first degree in Business and Humanities (the arts and social sciences). I wrote as a freelance journalist and editor for several large publications and hosted live cable television for two years. I walked countless red carpets being a VIP media guest at major industry events all over the country a

38 Underrepresented World Wide Talents That You Need to Know!

In a world where so many great entrepreneurs and artists can become famous at the act of one viral video online, it's easy to get lost in the misconception that with social media's "power," anybody who is talented is already known. After all, it isn't as difficult to gain exposure and "get big" as it was 20 years ago before the Internet's Massive Media takeover, right? Partially yes, however, social media also makes the market 10x as saturated as it was 20 years ago. Thus, are you really that much further ahead if all of your competition has the means to one-up you, free of cost and inconvenience, just by posting to their online accounts? It's a lot to think about. That is why we here at The Fresh Faces Project work hard to make sure that the artists and entrepreneurs and do-gooders who are underrepresented and don't get the fame and acknowledgment that their talents merit are given a platform. That platform is us. When creating thi

The Search For "Mr. Right": 2 Years On Every App Taught Me This

  Over the last 2 years, I've been conducting what some could call a "social experiment." I have been single (by choice) for the better part of the last 2.5 years and had an epiphany a little over 2 years ago to give online dating services a shot! While it hasn't been the most miraculous experience, it has certainly been a valuable one! And, I strongly recommend that anyone who is looking to settle down with a life partner, give them a try! Maybe you don't need to sign up for almost every app known to man like I have LOL, but at least try the major ones. This blog is a detailed account of my findings as a young, sweet, successful woman with online dating.  For clarity, I've added the below chart for you to understand who I am and what I have to offer versus what I am seeking. This foundational knowledge is key to comprehending the results of my "experiment." I, as a 26 year old woman who is the CEO of a successful small business (
