Pivoting From Corporate To Business Coach
Chelsea worked in IT for four years and stumbled into what she calls, “creating your own life.” She saw the great potential of creating a business that allowed her freedom, flexibility and financial gain. Chelsea started off freelancing as a part-time side hustle, but she pivoted to full time once she saw the amount of financial freedom having an online business allowed her.
With Chelsea’s background in tech implementation, she was able to launch a business that saved time and effort for her clients. Chelsea was making a lot of money and saw that her friends were struggling. She began having conversations with friends and followers and realized that she was charging a lot more money. It boiled down to knowing how to show up with confidence.
