"Embracing your Messy Brilliance is about
owning all of your stories, experiences, strengths, and weaknesses—and treating them with an enormous amount of compassion."
New Book Your Messy Brilliance, the first book by RCH client and Women For One Founder Kelly McNelis recently launched. It’s inspiring precisely because it isn’t just another prescription for living the beautiful life. Instead, it offers an engaging, customizable roadmap to the authentic you. With a combination of personal experience, relatable stories from everyday women, and practical wisdom, Kelly guides you into the most important journey you will ever take as a woman: the journey back home to your messy brilliance…and your ultimate truth!
Dive into your messy brilliance, where you’ll discover:
How engaging with curiosity and childlike wonder can get you out of a rut
A new way to boldly own your life story and move from victimhood to empowerment
How your story is connected to the larger story of the feminine
The truth about your “darkness” (hint: don’t be afraid of it!)
How embodying limitless possibility is about so much more than “manifestation”
Where your unique genius lives—in your messy brilliance and beautiful flaws!
An actionable set of tools you can customize to move even closer to the true you

Employee Spotlight: Steven Hettema
"In a world of technology, computer screens, artificial intelligence, virtual and augmented reality, there’s nothing like building something tangible, something you can touch, something that brings physical comfort and safety to others. Building brings me back to the wholesome life I remember growing up on the ranch."

ExperienceWith the start of the new year, Steven Hettema, joins RCH in the role of Vice President of Sales. Raised on a Northern CA ranch, with 3,000 apple trees and 60 head of livestock, Steven left his idyllic childhood and began his early career, first with the US Navy, based at Kitsap, where he worked in submarine units, Special Forces and Strategic Warfare Combat Crews; his career transitioned to that of civilian small-business owner, when he built a residential and commercial construction company with a national reach in 33 states around the country. Most recently, Steven also worked in the corporate world.
Outside of Work Spending more than three decades living in the Pacific Northwest, Steven couldn't imagine living anywhere else. Everything he loves to do and spend time on, are right here. As a husband, father to six, and experiencing the added joys of two grandchildren, Steven's hobbies include hunting, fishing, golfing and spending time with family. He shares that he loves to read and work to improve himself every day. Steven's planning his next vacation as a surprise trip for his wife and says "She's going to Freak!" when he sets it up as a trip to New York, with an itinerary that actually continues onward to Italy, one of her favorite places!
Industry Perspective Steven shares that his greatest joy with work, is when he hands over the keys to a new (or renovated home) to a client and sees their smile, hear their words of appreciation, and observes their thankfulness within their happy hearts.
Steven we're so glad you're part of our work team!
Steven & Stephanie Hettema and their family.
