How I Stopped 'Shoulding' Myself and Became My Own Boss


Hey fam! Today I want to talk to y’all about the wildest leap I’ve ever made - leaving my corporate job to become fully self-employed. 


About a year and some change ago I made the decision to bet on myself and my platform and left my super safe 9-to-5 office job. I never considered myself to have that entrepreneurial spirit you hear about, so being completely on my own terrified the living crap out of me. Also, when I started Chelsea as of Late, I truly never thought it would become a way to sustain myself - it was purely a hobby!


I struggled to come to this decision because my head would immediately go to all the ways I could fail and the reasons why I shouldn’t ‘rock the boat’ so to speak. I eventually gathered the courage - and finances - and made the leap in February of last year.


I want to speak about this today because the laundry list of reasons why I shouldn’t have left seem so silly today but I know they can be absolutely paralyzing in the moment. And this applies to so many aspects of life, beyond just work and career.


HaloTop Creamery invited me to speak to their #StopShouldingYourself and I think there’s truly no better time to adopt this mentality. Stop getting in the way of your own success, joy and growth and start betting on yourself. I promise it’s the most rewarding thing one can do!
