Chelsea of EQ Minds
Q1) Tell us a little about yourself!
As an ambassador for the Gidget Foundation and RUOK, my focus is on mental health and improving the wellbeing of Australians. Im currently studying in Psychology after spending many years in the corporate sector burning the candle at both ends. This has given me an insight into making mental health a priority in the workplace to improve both happiness and productivity.
Q2) Tell us about what you do, and why you do it
I’m an International keynote speaker for mental health and speak at approximately 15 events per week. I share many tips and tools to help people perform at their best at my events. We often are expected to deliver so much, but if we are not taking care of ourselves, there is little chance that we can be at our most productive. Creating a framework and set of habits that keep you at your mental peak will help drive growth and performance across both your work life and your home life.
Q3) What makes you feel courageous?
Being so completely myself, makes me feel courageous and also everyone else feels safe to be themselves around me too.
Q4) What is one thing you wish you could tell your 16-year-old self?
Swim in your own lane. Don’t compare yourself to others. The only person you should be comparing yourself to is - who you were yesterday. If you improve on yourself from yesterday, then that is a successful day.
Q5) What is one piece of advice you can give a fellow lady who might be lacking courage?
What you are most fearful of, is what can make you grow the most. Be brave, be courageous, be vulnerable. You are not too old, and it is never too late.
