Kelsey Chapman is an author, podcaster and personal cheerleader to women building their dream life and business.

When she first launched my own brand in 2015, she felt all the overwhelming feelings, too. It was scary to take such a huge leap and commit to showing up for a dream she didn’t know would pan out.

Meet Kelsey Chapman

YOUR PERSONAL CHEERLEADER

your personal cheerleader

Over the first few years of business, she leaned on the shoulders of incredible mentors who took her under their wing and taught her how to make the jump from dreamer to doer. Kelsey needed their expert wisdom to shift old perspectives, discover the next right steps that would help her execute the vision, and stay hopeful throughout the journey.

Kelsey’s mentors helped shape her character so she could become the CEO and leader she is today. Now she is excited to pay it forward and be that cheerleader for you, too… because she believes YOU can turn your wildest dreams into REALITY.

Mentorship is what pushed her to rise up.

In What They Taught Me, Kelsey speaks with honesty and vulnerability, something we all benefit from when it comes to sitting at the feet of others that have something to teach us. Her insight and wisdom weaved through each page proves to be a rich blessing for anyone ready to live a life of wholeness, purpose, and joy.

Kelseys words remind us that there is healing in togetherness and these words allow you the graceful permission to reflect on the, "What they taught me lessons" from your own life and how they shaped who you are today.

What They Taught Me is a must read for all women! It so beautifully portrays the power of women investing in women. Kelsey shows that mentorship and championing others doesn't have to be complicated and transactional, but even more powerful by simply stepping into who God has already called you to be, exactly where you are, with what is in your hands in the moment. The book was enjoyably witty with relatable stories. WTTM has empowered me to evaluate how I can better use what God's already given me to pour into my two baby girls so that they can go and someday do the same!

What They Taught Me is a powerful reflection on the village that raises us - the people who decide to love us through difficulty, who show up to lift us up, and who teach us to give to others, as they have given to us. Mentorship often lacks clarity and boundaries, directives and care, but Kelsey clarifies practical steps, wisdom for relating, and the right balance of personal connection and excellence necessary to seek mentorship, and to provide it, as well. I want to give a copy of this to every young woman in my life, and you will absolutely be encouraged to do the same.

One of my favorite quotes ever is this: “If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more, and become more, you are a leader.” -John Quincy Adams Most wonder if they even are capable of mentoring, but the reality is we all do in some shape, form, or fashion. Whether a reluctant or ecstatic mentor, within What They Taught Me, Kelsey dives in deep into this thought of being a leader/mentor with intentionality and consideration for others. It’s a book I personally will underline, highlight, and return to often. Love it!

An incredible timely message! Kelsey paints a beautiful (and funny!) story of support, encouragement, love and leadership. It’s easy to think we need to lead extraordinary lives to be impactful, but this book reveals the profound impact of the everyday friend and leader. I highly recommend this one to all women!
