DEAR 22 YEAR OLD CHELSEA

By CHELSEA LEIFKEN

i found this picture - got all up in my feelings + had to share my thoughts.

-

dear 22 year old chelsea, i know you feel SO crazy lost. you graduated with a business degree and chose to move back in with mom to find yourself, your voice, your passion, your purpose. in 6 years you'll be making a living painting you're feelings on everything. and believe it or not - one day you'll decide to shave all your hair off [you never identified with it anyway] you'll learn to drop your ego. you'll work nanny jobs and barista gigs for the next 3 years and learn more lessons than you ever could at school. you'll have 842882 panic attacks, make 827 new friends and have 5838 more feelings. some doors won't open for you - but girl, you'll realize later they weren't your doors.  you'll get involved with @awakenarts and work with girls whose lives reflect yours.  you’re going to find yourself - fall in love with yourself and finally put chelsea first. you’ll realize you don’t have to be completely healed to help people — but by helping people, you will heal completely. it's gonna be a wild journey girl - but i promise, you gon kill it. don't stop shining that light. head high. love, 28 year old chelsea #chelseawrites [whip cream explosion at @starbucks, 2011]

CALL ME BOSSY

By CHELSEA LEIFKEN

What the best piece of advice for women who are interested in starting a business? What do you wish you had know when you started?

One thing I share with women who are starting their own business is just focus on being you. Stop looking at what everyone else is doing and how they are doing it. Log off the internet, turn off your phone. Continue to be YOURSELF. Showcase your voice. From brand to website to social media—I tried my best to be my authentic self and people SEE that.

#chelseawrites on Jig + Saw
 
We are women in power. 
We do not wait for permission, we go for it. 
We do not seek confirmation, we already know. 
We are a community of educations, colors, faces, forces.
We celebrate one another, our successes, our failures. 
We are a collective of opportunity, and no man shall stop us. 
We are strength in one, strength in numbers. 
We do not wait. 
We do not seek. 
We are women who hustle.

THE OPPORTUNISTA

By CHELSEA LEIFKEN

 

The Chelsea Leifken brand is founded upon your commitment to “Treat Everybody Like They Are Somebody.” What was the inspiration behind your mission?


I’m such an empath. It hurts my heart to see people treated differently or unfairly. So much so that I decided to merge my minimalist aesthetic and unique writing style, and to utilize my art and various products to offer not just products and services, but an inspiring message.

FLY DUO TASTEMAKER

By CHELSEA LEIFKEN

 

BEYOND honored to be picked as Fly Duo's October Tastemaker.

"In a society full of copycats, it’s refreshing to see people whether on their own or in business, stand up and take a stand for individuality, for uniqueness, for self. Tastemakers is dedicated to introducing the individuals and businesses who not only have an influence on society, but who are doing it as themselves, without apology, and in their own way. To those who make the mold rather than try to squeeze into one that currently exists, and to whom at the same time we cannot help but to be inspired and influenced by." - Fly Duo

 

 

We chatted personal style/aesthetic, individuality and authenticity.
