Do you know what Coca-Cola, Nike, and McDonald’s have in common? Well, if you ask around, you’ll see that everyone knows each brand’s iconic logo and trademark.
Developing a brand identity sure sounds like a lot of work. I mean, how can you make a name for yourself when the...
“Your focus determines your reality.”
Not gonna lie, last night the Sunday scaries started to creep in and I could feel my mind starting to spiral.
It was a tough weekend for my family as we lost someone very close to us in a terrible Motorcycle accident. A unexpected loss like this stops you in your tracks and makes you think about how precious life is. One day your here and one day your not.
As I was processing this loss late last night while kind of watching Star Wars on the TV in the background- the swirl of thoughts about my week, my to do list, up coming travel, and the series of deadlines I had all bleed together and I started to feel like I was mentally sinking in quicksand. 🕳
Then a brilliant George Lucas line struck me like a lightning bolt, “Your Focus Determines Your Reality.” (I’m new to the #Starwars world so this line was a new one for me)
It became clear in that moment, wow I am NOT focused on all the right things and gave myself a gentle reality slap:
-I am grateful for the memories made with whom we lost
-I’m grateful for the air in my lungs
-I’m grateful for my family’s safety & health
-I am grateful for the projects I am working on
-I am grateful for the upcoming travel & opportunities ahead
-I am grateful to be busy with things that are fueling me vs those that drain me
-> What quicksand - I’m flying not sinking!
We have the power within to reset and focus. Not always easy, but we do have the choice. Would you agree? 💭 . .

Your desire to change must be greater than your desire to stay safe. 🪁
Hmmm, change - sometimes scary, sometimes overwhelming, sometimes overdue, but always inevitable.
Change is something I have been craving for what feels like tooo long and I am VERY excited (with a small dollop of fear) about all the change I am welcoming personally and professionally this year.
If you’ve known me for awhile you most likely think of me as the “Millennial Marketing Girl,” which is totally ok and I absolutely love it. But, after 12 years of specializing in Millennial Marketing I am ready to step outside the Millennial box and color freely outside the lines of any limitation I put on myself and my business this year and for the future! ❤️🧡💛💚💙💜
MOOD: “BRING ON THE CHANGE!”
-I am ready to focus on the projects that my intuition is screaming for me to create and share. 🌈
-I am ready to tap into my passion for wellness, women’s empowerment, adventure, personal growth and focus on the human behind the Entrepreneur with my clients in addition to marketing, branding, and strategy. 🦋
-I am ready to be spontaneous and launch my new podcast, workshop, and mindset method that I hope every woman and female entrepreneur can relate to and benefit from. 🌹
-I am ready to change my mindset of “I can’t” when it comes to expanding my family while expanding my business to “Of course I can and it is going to be better than I could ever imagine.”✨
-I am ready to sit in the driver's seat and not let fear make me question myself & my direction. 🏹
Ohhh the change is here - can ya feel it?!?!
Where are you welcoming change right now?

Last week I felt something brewing.
It was clear that my communication was off, the voices in my head were just so damn loud, I felt confused, not in control of my emotions, yet insanely stimulated creatively!
And what do ya know...Mercury is in retrograde for the first time in this new decade.🌖🌗🌘🌑🌒🌓🌔
In astrology, Mercury rules communication, technology, and travel, so when it retrogrades, don’t be shocked if these areas feel a little funky. Think exes in your DMs, social media platforms glitching, missing your flight, feeling creatively charged. (A little manic 🙄)
Now, I don’t plan on letting Mercury totally F*** up my flow, so now that I am aware that Mercury is in retrograde until March 10th I plan on cutting myself a little slack along with the rest of the World and not rushing the process.
Mercury Retrograde says “Let Go!” ❄️You don’t control everything. - isn’t that a great reminder?🙏🏼
Instead of jumping into something totally new this is a great time to relook or give more attention to something you’ve already started in the realms of writing, speaking, teaching, and learning.
Remember: Mercury Retrograde = Revision, Redefine, Reconsider, Reclaim. Reworking existing plans and projects fit with this energy perfectly.
Instead of hop-scotching all over the place, do yourself a favor and close all those tabs on your computer, limit the social media scrolling, and focus on one task at a time.
Can you relate? Do you tend to feel these things or not so much? 🪐🌈⚡️ .

There’s an emotional toll to entrepreneurship that many people don’t talk about. Many entrepreneurs struggle to create a proper work/life balance.
Work/life balance isn’t that even funny...shouldn’t it be LIFE/WORK balance!!??
Entrepreneurs are known to have a higher risk for mental health issues such as depression, anxiety and addiction because of the immense pressure of running, sustaining, and scaling a business.
I’ll admit it, I feel cycles of superwoman strength and complete burnout as I’m sure so many of you can relate.
But, this year I pledge to take action for myself and my mental health just like how I show up every day and take action for my business.
I am excited about the projects I have in development because they truly have an emphasis on both work and LIFE. (So much goodness to come...🌈)
We spend so much time focused on the need for Entrepreneurs to grind, hustle, and sleep when you die.
NO NO - not anymore. There has to be a better balance - and there is a better balance.
It just starts with prioritizing yourself first!

Instead of picking yourself apart today or starting the week with a negative mindset.
Reset and remind yourself of a few things your proud of.💭
1. My ability to stick with something when tempted to quit.
2. My ability to help others create structure within their creative ideas.
3. My honest intention for wanting others to succeed.
4. My 3+ year marriage. ♥️
Reminder to be kind to yourself.
𝐒𝐡𝐞 𝐬𝐚𝐢𝐝, "𝐈 𝐟𝐞𝐞𝐥 𝐥𝐢𝐤𝐞 𝐈 𝐡𝐚𝐯𝐞 𝐬𝐨 𝐦𝐚𝐧𝐲 𝐭𝐚𝐛𝐬 𝐨𝐩𝐞𝐧 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐈 𝐝𝐨𝐧'𝐭 𝐤𝐧𝐨𝐰 𝐰𝐡𝐞𝐫𝐞 𝐭𝐨 𝐬𝐭𝐚𝐫𝐭 𝐟𝐢𝐫𝐬𝐭." I laughed out loud. Me and you BOTH! I hear this all the time from my coaching clients.
It's early in the New Year and I'm sure you have a bunch of ideas and possibly multiple projects in the queue that are set to launch in 2020.
It's easy to get overwhelmed when you're in "creation mode." When I am in creation mode (like right now) all I want to do is hibernate, abandon my emails, go off the social grid, and just create create create. HA! Kind of impossible if you want to stay consistent and not drown yourself in emails to the point of no return.
𝐒𝐨 𝐡𝐞𝐫𝐞 𝐚𝐫𝐞 𝐚 𝐟𝐞𝐰 𝐭𝐡𝐢𝐧𝐠𝐬 𝐭𝐡𝐚𝐭 𝐡𝐞𝐥𝐩:
1.) Evaluate your calendar and block schedule the hell out of it. The key to time blocking is organizing the tasks that need to be completed like emails, conference calls, client work, content creation, etc & then set aside a specific timeframe to focus only on those items and nothing else - CLOSE THOSE TABS MY FRIEND!
2.) Commit to bulk post creation. Sometimes the best way to stay consistent with social posts is to chart out 7 to 10 days of content in one sitting. You will love yourself later if you actually do this!
3.) Automate what you can. Use Jotform for inquiry intakes or Calendly to make scheduling a breeze.
4.) Put that away message on. This not only gives you peace of mind, but also manages expectations for those emailing you. Drop that Calendly link in there so that people can schedule a time to chat with you once you come back up for air.
What did I miss? What helps you "GET IT DONE!?"

Do you catch yourself daydreaming? I do all the time.
I get lost in my thoughts and find that allowing myself to daydream really sparks the creativity within me.
Gloria Steinem says, “𝐃𝐫𝐞𝐚𝐦𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐚𝐟𝐭𝐞𝐫 𝐚𝐥𝐥 𝐢𝐬 𝐚 𝐟𝐨𝐫𝐦 𝐨𝐟 𝐩𝐥𝐚𝐧𝐧𝐢𝐧𝐠” And I couldn’t agree more.
While some of my daydreams spark new ideas - on the flip side - sometimes I find myself suppressing my dreams because that annoying negative voice inside my head says, “that will never happen or get real Chelsea that dream is way out there.”
But, If I allowed myself to quit my daydream I would have missed out on so many incredible opportunities over the past decade. It's all about taking ownership of your own thoughts.
𝐈 𝐥𝐨𝐯𝐞 𝐭𝐡𝐢𝐬…
“The pessimist complains about the wind. The optimist expects it to change. The realist adjusts the sails.”
I like to think that I'm a 𝐫𝐞𝐚𝐥𝐢𝐬𝐭𝐢𝐜 𝐨𝐩𝐭𝐢𝐦𝐢𝐬𝐭 who finds the balance between dreaming big while setting tangible goals to help me achieve the dream. ✨Who are you...?
We all deserve the opportunity to dream big and it starts with setting your intention.
Yoga, meditation, and being in nature helps me tame the zillion thoughts inside my head so that I can zone in on my intention and ultimately let my intuition reveal the answer.

Does the the thought of being hacked send shivers down your spine? Well, it sure does for me. A few years ago I went to log in to my website to upload a new blog post and BAM! As soon as I logged in there was a young man probably in his late teens staring at me with this cackle laughing expression with the word 𝗛𝗔𝗖𝗞𝗘𝗗 𝗛𝗔𝗖𝗞𝗘𝗗 𝗛𝗔𝗖𝗞𝗘𝗗 popping up in word bubbles all over my screen. At that moment I felt sheer terror & such an invasion of my privacy.
The HACKER was someone I had never met & I had no idea why he decided to HACK my website & hold all my content ransom other than the fact that he just simply could.
For a week I prayed that the HACKER would not delete the years of blogs, videos, media clips, & imagery that I had worked so hard to create & share on my website. Thankfully my web developer Damon & the @ultrawebmarketing team safely recovered everything on my site.
That feeling I had, waiting on pins & needles just to hear “ALRIGHT ALL IS CLEAR” was one of the absolute worst feelings & I would never wish it on anyone.
𝘿𝙄𝘿 𝙔𝙊𝙐 𝙆𝙉𝙊𝙒:
-There is a hacker attack every 39 seconds
-On average 30,000 new websites are hacked every day
-Cybercrime is more profitable than the global illegal drug trade
-66% of businesses attacked by hackers weren’t confident they could recover
𝗧𝗛𝗜𝗦 𝗜𝗦 𝗡𝗢 𝗝𝗢𝗞𝗘 & we need to seriously educate ourselves so that we can protect- OURSELVES, OUR BUSINESS, & OUR FAMILIES!

First and foremost, Happy New Year everyone. I feel like I just got settled into the 2020 flow, what about you!? .
Well, Yesterday my sister in law Marisa aka @the_conscious_mommy and I spent the entire day developing an upcoming workshop and tool for women, female entrepreneurs, mothers, and those looking to crush the FOMO and step into their Rainbow Reality. 🌈(More on that coming soon 😉)
Throughout the day we were also taking care of this precious little nugget, my 4 month old Nephew Nash. And WOW - I was so inspired by the way Marisa multi-tasked, mothered like a champ, and continued to plow through our think tank with such grace.
Whether Nash was crying, feeding, pooping, squirming, or giggling we were there for him without missing a beat in our massive brainstorm.
I feel so proud to be a woman, we are strong yet gentle, giving yet self sufficient, and so fiercely full of love and compassion. ♥️
It is amazing how we can do it all if we choose to! I never felt my ovaries more yesterday and excited for the future in so many ways. ✨(No- Nothing to share yet!)
Pat yourselves on the back Mommas! Tag a momma or care taker who deserves to the love! ⤵️

As business owners, it’s no secret we want to stand out and 𝗣 𝗢 𝗣 through the clutter -- and there’s a good reason for this. Millennials are drawn to disruptive brands. We’re naturally attracted to businesses that push the envelope and remain consistent in their unique, purposeful messaging.
So, ask yourself: What is it that makes your brand unique and compelling? In other words, what is your signature? And how will you use it to drive traffic to your brand?
If you don’t know the answer yet, that’s totally fine. My goal here is to introduce you to a concept that is guaranteed to get your gears turning. It’s something that has personally made a huge difference in my own business. Yet, strangely, it’s rarely talked about.
I’m talking about creating a signature traffic builder.
There are many ways to create traffic, but a signature traffic builder is the unique plan of action and content your brand commits to. Your signature traffic builder might be a blog, podcast, twitter chat like #Millennialtalk, Facebook Live series, email newsletter or webinar (or whatever other inventive, amazing idea you have that is relevant to your business). Whatever method you decide to employ, you’re going to be creating consistent, deliberate content that will drive brand awareness, traffic and engagement to your business... .
🔸SO WHAT'S YOUR SIGNATURE?

When it comes to 𝑷𝒆𝒓𝒔𝒐𝒏𝒂𝒍 𝒃𝒓𝒂𝒏𝒅𝒊𝒏𝒈, name recognition is EVERYTHING and a good brand message communicates more in fewer words. We all know by now that content is king and social media is the best vehicle to drive traffic to your website, blog, or online store. This is why “discoverability” is so important as the digital space gets more cluttered...
To increase brand awareness and being discovered by like minded people and potential customers take your social media names and domain name into serious consideration. By using .ONLINE to customize a domain extension you can tell the world about what you have to offer and use it as a keyword driven link shortener in your social posts. Your domain name is a huge part of your brand identity online and getting it right can make a huge difference. Check out www.get.online to find your web address. Don’t forget--it’s the ᗪETᗩIᒪᔕ that change the game. #ad
