Is your business supporting the lifestyle you want? Chelsea Hibbard creates beautiful, branded templates for Blogger and WordPress. She works with a developer to make these integrations awesome and easy to use. Chelsea has done an amazing job of building her business around her life, rather than the other way around. I think many of us want our businesses to support the lifestyle that we want to have so that we can put our life first, but that’s sometimes easier said than done. Chelsea is such a great example of this and has great insights into how we can make our business work with our life instead of against it.

Topics we cover:

— Chelsea’s journey from journalism to marketing to graphic design
— The Etsy shop she set up while staying home with her kids and what it taught her that helped make Get Polished a success
— How business helped Chelsea re-establish her sense of identity after becoming a mom
— Navigating the guilt that can come from being a woman and thinking you have to do it all
— How Chelsea has adapted her business model as her life has changed
— The schedule she has arranged with her husband that she can be home with her kids and work on her business
— How Chelsea knew it was time to rebrand her business and the process she went through to choose the new name for her business
— Her advice for entrepreneurs who are just starting out on a budget and want to know what they can DIY themselves and where they should invest in help
— The logistics of how Chelsea partnered with a developer to support her business
