We had the good fortune of connecting with Chelsea Long and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Chelsea, what is the most important factor behind your success?
The most important factor behind my success and the success of my brand is ME. I represent everything that I create and do. Chelsea is the girl behind it all,while Lifeofchelz is the platform to display who I am as an Artist. The key factors of my brand Lifeofchelz is self-love, self-care and dedication. Knowing who you are and your purpose will bring success during your journey of becoming/being a business owner.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
Lifeofchelz LLC is a brand that represents me. My purpose is to inspire, motivate, and encourage the people around me. I practice peaceful living and provide skincare products that’s all natural with essential oils(lemongrass,lavender,mint, and clove) each essential oil has it’s own healing factors. My beaded jewelry represents peace, protection, abundance and love. different meanings, different crystals and stones. All sizes and shapes (Rose Quartz, White Quartz , Clear Quartz, Amethyst, Black Quartz and more) I can truly say I’m mostly proud of me having the faith and courage to step into another field other than Dance. I’ve performed on several stages,Tv platforms, Web platforms and more during my professional dance career. Dance is my passion and will forever be my first love ,but being aware that creating is the process I’m in love with elevated me to try new things. I use the same process from my technique of dance to create my art of handmade jewelry and organic skincare products. The first question I asked “why am I doing this?” COVID-19 allowed me to invest time in learning myself and understanding who I am. I’m a firm believer that loving yourself is the number one step towards happiness. Providing dance lessons for someone who wants to make a change in their lifestyle makes me happy. (Confidence, Fitness, movement coach for stage) Providing organic skincare products for someone makes me happy. (Smells good, feels good, do good) Providing stylish beaded crystal jewelry for the body makes me happy. (Waistbands, Anklets, Bracelets, Necklaces, and Rings) each pattern is different one of kind. All reflect self love and self care. I’m a versatile artist, I love to be different.
