Yes you have a steady paycheck coming in but your side hustle still has worth and value.
I remember there being times where someone would negotiate a quote I gave them to a super low deal and my initial thought would be “eh it’s extra income anyway.” Let’s not talk about the “can you do it for free” folks either 🙄
It’s never just “extra income” it’s your skill, your time, your experience and service that you’re providing.
I talk about all of this in Built to Monetize. Literally holding your hand so you can
* Get the right paying customers
* Avoid the phase of “I’ll do it for free”
* Charging your worth unapologetically
* Creating that consistent revenue
And then more. Link in the bio. Doors closing real soon

Shoutout to all the women entrepreneurs like these two inspirational bomb ladies, who had a vision and mission and brought it to fruition! This #tbt was inspired by doing my taxes as a female sole business owner and got me thinking how hard we work to give to other women so they leave us feeling empowered, joyfully healthy and confident!! @prismaalexandra owns @rise_barre and @bordhello_de_jonello owns @glowbeautysantafe 💕 Check these ladies and their services out! My brows and my bootay and my attitude are thanks to their offerings and my sisterhood and female run business community stronger because of them. #girlsruntheworld
Throwback Thursday... to that super sweeeeet mini vacay at the lake a few weeks ago! I LOVE ENTREPRENEURSHIP.....just saying, haha!
Socialites, I PROMISE there’s an easier way to do this thing called life! One, where you are free to pursue all of your passions! And all it takes is a leap of faith, a little grit, and gumption!
Surround yourself with like minded people, and invest in yourself and your biz! You are worth it, and the world is waiting for your unique passions!
DM me at anytime! I love sharing my journey, and answering questions! The best advice I can give right now in this moment... just begin! You’ve got this!
It's me, Chelsea, the founder of Stratso Creative, who I swear has been working hard behind the scenes for the official launch.
Until then, here's a little bit about me!
🌴I'm based on the island of Oahu, but always on the move! Whether it's to another island to photograph a wedding, or heading to the west coast or Texas to see my friends, I hop on more planes a year than I can count! Travel keeps me inspired and motivated, so it's pretty high on the priority list!
🌴I picked up my first DSLR camera about 10 years ago, immediately proclaimed I was never working another "regular job" again in my life and I relentlessly pursued photography as my career. I tried out many areas of photography including editorial and motocross, before finally coming back to my first photography love - weddings and portraits.
🌴I'm obsessed with house plants! My prized possession is a 4 ft tall Dracaena named Carl. There's a lizard currently living with Carl (welcome to Hawaii life, folks) that I've named Larry. Yes, I'm a crazy plant lady, I know.
What else do you guys want to know about me?? I'll post a Q&A on my story, but if you ever have any questions, feel free to slide into my DMs!

I have this tiny green book by my nightstand full of wisdom from the incomparable @cherylstrayed. It’s littered with sticky notes on almost every page because I can’t possibly choose a favorite. Sometimes I just have to open it, flip a few pages, and soon enough I’ll have the very words I desperately needed orchestrated in the perfect way. This was the one that hit me today. Maybe you need it too. #braveenough

Could you build a million-dollar business? Maybe you don't think you have a big idea or the right skills. But @heatherhavenwood encourages you to dig deep and realize that you, like all women, have something extraordinary to share.
Já que estamos falando de cores, quais as cores mais predominantes do seu feed?
Para conhecer melhor a sua paleta, eu aconselho a usar esse app aí que usei nessa foto acima, chama-se Palette Republic, a parte ruim, é que ele está disponível apenas para IOS, ouvi dizer que o Palette é muito bom também, e tem para Android. 😉

“If I have accomplished anything in life it is because I have been willing to work hard.” Madam C.J. Walker
Can you be jet lagged from a 3 hour time difference? 🤷🏼♀️ I just got to Perth yesterday for a week away and I was in bed by 8.30pm and now I’m up at 6.30am and I just asked ‘is it Friday at home?’ ⠀
Guys I’m hopeless 🤪
On a side note- we are currently cutting more of these gorgeous swing tanks...with a twist. Stay tuned!
Been having a bland ass day 😅😂. I need a little sumsum to brighten my day.

Running your own graphic design business is seriously hard work. It can be so frenetic sometimes that even things like folding and putting away laundry end up going by the wayside for longer than I ought to admit. The hustle is a given, but what sets me apart from others in this field is passion for creating designs uniquely tailored to YOU. With me, I take the time to listen to my clients and understand their vision and ideas for their project. Wanna know more? Hit my DM with any questions or leave them here!

Definitely not my usual attire but it always feels good to get out of my yoga pants and sweatshirts when there’s a special occasion. It was so refreshing to put on this dress for a wedding we attended last month — I seriously felt like a different person for the day!
Working from home can sometimes feel like groundhogs day so I try to find ways to switch things up from time to time in order to boost my mood and productivity. Every so often I’ll rearrange my work space or opt for working outside of the house. Sometimes even just changing into something other than yoga pants helps! Plus I have this little guy who loves to lay under my desk or put his head in my lap while I work on the computer. If only everyone could have a dog with them at work!
For those of you who work from home, what do you do to switch things up?

HEY GIRL, HOW STRONG IS YOUR BRAND?
Branding is very important for businesses, especially in this digital age. I studied branding and design in undergrad and grad school and know the ins and outs of color psychology, typography, voice, etc.
But when I was in school, I had no idea I’d own my business right after graduation. Since starting Girlcrush Collective, I’ve focused on creating a very strong brand. What I’ve learned along the way (thanks to @theslaycoach) is that your brand extends beyond your logo, your fonts, your colors. YOU are your brand.
As a business owner, you are the face of your brand, even if you’re mostly behind the scenes. But as a business owner, blogger, influencer, etc. it's important for your mindset that you "live your brand." By this, I mean that your personal presence should align with your brand. My workspace is white and pink, my laptop is pink, I wear pink, etc. And I love finding spots like @ilovecafelola that match my branding! It really helps me get into the right mindset while I work.
How do you live your brand? 🌸

Meet Britt, our newest #girlcrush!
Britt's a 24-year-old blogger, author, & nap enthusiast (we feel you, Britt). She writes short, authentic, emotional, relatable poems - check out her instagram, @musings.of.a.she.wolf! She also recently published her second book, Dirty Laundry (available on Amazon)!
When asked about her ideal reader, Britt said, "My ideal reader is anyone that’s needing to hear some hard truths, have a good laugh or someone that just needs to know that my life is a mess too and we’re in this together. I think social media has created such high expectations of us so I want to convey to my reader that life isn’t as glamorous as everyone is making it out to be."
We need more Britt's in this world. To read her full Girlcrush interview, click the link in our bio!
