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

Hi Chelsea, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?
Grand rising

I am from Fort Worth Tx born and raised
I am the child of Vanessa walker and Charles walker I have two siblings , my older sister Tuana and my younger brother Trey. I am a Single mother of two precious little boys named Yuri and Rodrick Jr.

The thought process behind my career came from seeing my mom struggle to take care of me and my younger brother but she always and I mean always made a way for us . Also the thought of working for other people not actually getting what I’m worth just started not to sit right with me. I needed to do something different not just for me but for my children . I want to be able to leave a empire for my boys to run and leave them something when I’m gone and that be able to go through generations.

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.
I am a licensed Esthetician and a Tax Preparer ( as of recent ) going through the process it was difficult for me because I was a new mom again amongst of other situations that came but throughout the process what kept me going was removing myself from toxic situations, people, vibes and if I had to I stay to myself I did because my peace was more important and making sure I’m focused.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
I love the out doors I love going fishing and hiking and connecting with nature so on a nice day I would go to Eagle mountain lake . I love to have fun and travel I just like to find and explore different things no matter where I am.

The amazing beautiful people I would l love to give appreciation to would be my family, my mentors, my friends, the people I met throughout my journey but mostly The higher power and my faith.

Without them I honestly don’t know what I would be doing right now

Thankyou 💋
