"Chelsey's workshop was absolutely incredible. It really created a safe space for strangers to come together. I loved the personalized touches and that the workshop was limited to only a few attendees. This workshop was by far my absolute favorite from design, aesthetic, timing, and was just very thought through." 

"The 1:1 breakouts provided honest feedback on my biggest gaps in my business. One of my favorite parts was the organic conversations about business experiences, challenges, wins and goals. The editorial provided new content with an elevated design aesthetic I needed for my website and social media. As I left the workshop, I felt refreshed, focused and ready to push my business to the next level."


“This is definitely the best investment I've made in my business yet! Chelsey was so open & real with everything and didn't try to gate-keep information from attendees, which was so refreshing. I was truly sad to leave, and couldn't have asked for a better workshop experience!”

Kind words from past attendees

From start to finish, the entire experience was beyond incredible! It was clear how deeply Chelsey and Jordan cared about pouring into the attendees. As an introvert, I was so nervous about being in a house full of strangers, but that quickly faded when Chelsey greeted me with the warmest hug. I have attended workshops previously, but nothing compared to this. They were genuinely invested in helping each of us grow and scale. And having the ability to capture images that elevated our portfolio was amazing! I cannot thank Chelsey and Jordan enough for the opportunity and experience.
