I’m a nomadic entrepreneur and writer who flip-flops from city to city, connecting with creatives and running my full-time coaching business.
Through mindset and business strategy, I teach creative entrepreneurs how to hone their OWN version of authentic leadership, success, and business sustainability.
I'm here to help you get CLEAR on your goals, confidently lead in your niche market, and EXECUTE a game plan that focuses on your well-being without sacrificing efficiency.
Sounds like a dream right? Well, as you know, it's really hard to expand your creative business on shaky foundations like overwhelm, burnout, and procrastination.
You're likely here because you're ready for answers that incorporate you not changing who you are, but being who you are (with smarter systems) as you walk your path to success.
"There aren't many creators like Kelsey who have the same level of authenticity and practice what they preach like she does. It's so nice to have someone in my inbox and on my social media feeds that reminds me not to be swept up in all the seemingly perfect success stories online"

"My favorite part of Thursdays! I'm so glad I came across Kelsey's wisdom and insights"
"So well-written, and always a fabulous story that reminds us of the importance of being who we are"
I know how hard it is...
While I was building a successful career as a personal stylist and marketing specialist for 10 years in New York, I was also (accidentally) starting a business through my blog, Kelsey's Day Off, where I shared my mental health journey as an artist trying to "make it" in the most highly competitive creative city.
Since 2018, I’ve consulted with multi-million dollar companies to educate them on the power of mindfulness in the workplace, I’ve led mindset and marketing workshops throughout North America, and I’ve held numerous online containers to support my own research around how authentic, impactful, and successful creative leadership is interwoven with the state of our overall well-being.
I began coaching because I had such trouble finding a coach that taught both realistic, practical strategy and mindset tools that incorporate how the mind and body work together to reach our big goals.
For 5 years, I built my business by relying on my tough, disciplined problem-solving skills, and my softer, creative side that knows the importance of caring for our minds, bodies, and spirits. The method I've developed with my 1:1 clients incorporates an essential balance of mindset and strategy to help us sustainably and steadily support ourselves as creative leaders.
What stops us from success:
Having no plan leaves us feeling stagnant and stuck.
We're spending too much time being worried about what everyone else thinks, sacrificing our needs and desires.
We struggle to take action and therefore, repeat the cycle.
What they're saying:
"I went from making no income through my creative projects to consistent gigs in my zone of genius in 4 months. Kelsey has helped me discover how I can truly build a business by integrating who I am in the process, and executing with more ease and confidence, without excessive burnout or exhaustion."
— Amanda, Creative Entrepreneur
"Kelsey has developed systems/techniques/strategies that are intellectual and different from what other coaches are teaching. Her intentional, practical approach is really needed. Kelsey showed me the value of being different and using my strengths to reach my goals, instead of ignoring who I am and what I truly desire in my life."
— Leora, Singer/Songwriter
"Kelsey is a natural-born teacher, whose passion for helping others shine lights her way as a leader. Kelsey supported me through a major career transition process, providing the scaffolding for me to navigate inner vision work while simultaneously helping me to develop practical action steps. She is deeply dedicated to the power of mindset to help navigate the challenges unique to creative entrepreneurs"
— Dr. Gwenyth Jackaway, PHD, Digital Wellness Entrepreneur
"Every time I have a call with Kelsey, she starts by asking, "How can I support you today" Her human-based approach and tangible, action-based guidance has given me confidence in my decision-making, and has made adjusting to a new city exciting and empowering!"
