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. 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. You don't have to settle.  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.

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. 

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 am a National Peer Recovery Support Specialist and  ARISE Intervention Classes and I begin my internship in June 2022. 

I am VERY spiritual and my roots are in a power far greater than me. I love tattoos, knitting, my family, and young people.  My husband Chris and I have been married for 25 years, and we have four amazing children.  The three oldest are teenagers and our youngest is 11.  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.
