Finding Your Identity as a Serial Entrepreneur & Mother with Chelsie Antos

I’m so excited to share this conversation with Trades of Hope founder, wife, mama, and serial entrepreneur Chelsie Antos.

She has been an incredible source of inspiration to me for years as I navigate entrepreneurship and mamahood, and I know this conversation will inspire and motivate you as well.

CHELSIE’S JOURNEY IN SERIAL ENTREPRENEURSHIP

Chelsie and her husband are two entrepreneurs in a pod, loving to create things together! Recently, they had two little girls and felt passionate about making time and space for intentional offline living.

As entrepreneurs, Chelsie said, we live and share a lot of our life online and it’s easy to get sucked in, become obsessed, and lose the ability to log off intentionally.

After hearing a statistic that said the average kid today gets outside less than a prison inmate, Chelsie and her husband began The Outside Fam, a movement calling entrepreneurs and families to the outdoors.

But, this wasn’t Chelsie’s first stint in entrepreneurship! Chelsie helped co-found Trades of Hope, a multi-million dollar company empowering women globally.

WHAT DOES BALANCE IN ENTREPRENEURSHIP LOOK LIKE?

It’s hard, she said, “Anything in life worth doing is hard. My mom always said, ‘If anything in life is worth doing it’s going to be hard, you just have to expect it and you gotta be okay with it.'”

They began the movement #takebacktheweekend, encouraging followers to completely log off social media for two days out of every week.

As entrepreneurs it’s hard to disconnect, easy to keep trying to get ahead. “So, there has to be a time,” she said. “Where we have to choose to not get ahead, to not try and reconnect with the online world.”

She loves the online world, she said, but “there’s a way to do it responsibly, and we’re going to take this time for our family.”

WHAT ELSE DO WE DISCUSS IN THIS EPISODE?

  • How balance has benefited her entrepreneurial life
  • How structure and free-spiritedness serve each other to create a full, joyful life
  • How Chelsie founded a multi-million dollar company at the age of 17
  • How she balances her achievement-driven nature with her desire to mother
  • How she’s seen herself grow as a leader in entrepreneurship and motherhood
  • The identity shift she’s had to make through entrepreneurship as she’s stepped out of her multi-million dollar company
  • The habits, intentions and practices she’s developed over time that has contributed to her success
