We had the good fortune of connecting with Chelsea Caddick of Chelsea Rose Beauty and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Chelsea, how has your work-life balance changed over time?
My work-life balance is always changing. I don’t see it as a straight level to maintain, I see it more as a seesaw scale that goes up and down. In different seasons and stages of my business, there will require a lot of dedication and workload from me and that may make me feel like my balance is off, but I know it won’t stay like that forever. Once I accomplish a big (or small goal) in my business then I go into dedicating more time to my relationships and pour into myself more so I feel rejuvenated. I think it’s really important to make sure you don’t stay on one side of the scale for too long otherwise, you may lose momentum.
Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
For me to get to where I am today, professionally, I’ve had to overcome major mindset trash, old money stories, and learn to love myself fully. That might seem like a totally irrelevant answer, but I truly didn’t see any success in my business until I started working on those things. Now I can tell the world, with confidence, that I specialize in long-lasting hair & makeup that feels weightless and compliments every woman through my pampering services & products. Right now I am most excited about my recent launch of the Chelsea Rose Beauty Shop. It’s starting with Bridal hair accessories but will blossom in 2021!
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Omigosh, I’m a real foodie so my list is endless for restaurants that I love but definitely make time for any restaurant in Little Italy (my favorite is Davanti Enoteca – great for wine and you have to order the Focaccia Di Recco). When I’m just hanging out in San Diego, I like to be active so I would suggest a hike at Cowles Mountain or a beautiful beach walk (mild hike) at Torrey Pines State Reserve.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
For starters, I have to give a shout out to each and every artist I’ve ever met in San Diego, you all have inspired me and encourage me in some way. I also want to show Ashley Fierro some love because her mentorship program really helped me turn a passion into a career.
