No. 003/Interview: Chelsea Sonksen of Bossladies Magazine

In this episode, we speak with Bossladies founder Chelsea Sonksen about her experiences prior to starting up the magazine, how she views work/life balance, and the responsibility we all have in sharing what we believe with the world.

The conversation covers:

  • Chelsea's story, and what excites her about bringing a community of women together
  • How she plans her days, and what she does to get over difficult moments
  • Your calling vs. how you make a living
  • The dilemma of sharing yourself to connect with others on social media, but needing to be mindful of who has access to your heart
  • The power of words
    ...and much more!

We are responsible for not only our viewpoints and how we express them but also for being mindful for how it’s being received.
