Racquel Garcia
HardBeauty Creator & CEO
Coaching Professional/Mentor & Social Entrepreneur

I am a sober wife, mother, coach/mentor/counselor, spiritual guide, social entrepreneur, author, and speaker.

This is my #Beauty. I’ve had my share of breakups, breakdowns, and breakthroughs. I did my work. I put my life back together piece by piece.

  My name is Racquel Garcia, and I am here to help you do your work. Maybe my story resonates with you, and maybe it doesn't.  My point is, I believe you CAN recover if you are willing to do the work. You CAN create a life full of joy, beautiful relationships, fulfilling work, and more.a You don't have to settle.  Furthermore, I believe we are all connected through story and that the power of choice is EVERYTHING. HardBeauty is both. We have assembled some of the best coaches to serve you. You can read their stories and see who best suits you. 

Coaching should NEVER be a forced relationship, it's ALWAYS choice. 

My story is BIG…my daddy drank too much, at 16 my friends were murdered at a Chuck E. Cheese, I was raped, lost my soccer career, and almost failed high school. I was a teenage bride, and I am also a recovered alcoholic. There’s more before and after I got sober in 2010, but I will spare you the details. The fact that I survived is a miracle. HardBeauty is HOW I’ve rebuilt myself, and now I am one of the best life coaches in Colorado, especially for youth!


In 2013 I graduated from ICDC college with a degree in addiction counseling. I was awarded Outstanding Graduate of the year by the ACCSC, presented to me by Mike Rowe.


After college, I was the co-creator and director of Helping Everyone Recover, and Operation P.J was a recovery and item collecting non-profit for more than five years. Helping Everyone Recover is currently in transition to become the “Shanna Hope Scholarship Fund.” This will be a non-profit organization to help offset the cost of coaching for families and individuals. We want coaching and the tools necessary to change one's life trajectory to be available to all. 

(Announcement coming soon).


In July 2019, I graduated from YCI (Youth Coaching Institute). There I obtained my coaching and mentor certification for youth with an emphasis on those individuals who are considered high-risk and have suffered trauma. I am also certified in Youth Mental Health First-Aid. I work with Women and Men, and I specialize in Youth ages (14-24). I work with Women and Men, and I specialize in Youth ages (14-24). I work with Women and Men, and I specialize in Youth ages (14-24). I have been coached as well as studied coaching, counseling, and humanity for ten years. It’s who I have become.


I love God (not religion), tattoos, knitting, my family, and young people.  My husband Chris and I have been married for more than 22 years, and we have four amazing children.  The three oldest are teenagers and our youngest is 8.  I have also been a foster parent and mentor to many more.

I will challenge your thinking, encourage healing, and inspire you to make your next chapter, your best chapter.  My name is Racquel Garcia, I am the creator of HardBeauty, and I am here to help you do your work.


With Love,
Racquel Garcia
