084 : Chelsea Matthews : Digital Marketing Entrepreneur

matte black, interview

During college Chelsea (@chelseamatthews) knew she wanted to do her own thing, but wasn’t sure what that would be.

Chelsea is now the founder of her own digital marketing agency, Matte Black, which helps businesses connect with twenty-somethings through social media by running their Instagram accounts and pairing them with online influencers. Matte Black has 21 current clients and this year is expanding to the UK.

You’ll hear Chelsea discuss her path to creating an agency with 8 full-time employees, the magic of letting people know what you want, and that the best time to face your fear, is right now.

“Just start projecting what you want, because it is so amazing what comes back your way.” – Chelsea Matthews
