Who is Kelsey B.?.....
Born and raised in Monroe, Louisiana. (Yes, there are other cities in Louisiana, not just New Orleans lol) I am a 2009 graduate of THE legendary Grambling State Univeristy, holding a B.S degree in Business Management. I worked in retail all throughout undergrad with no internship in my field to help position me within Corporate America. However, my years in retailed were not in vain. After working at the associate level for a few years, I was offered a store manager position almost 6 months after receiving my degree. Extremely grateful for the opportunity, I diveed head first and devoted myself fully to that company and store. But it didn't last long....
As I approached my last year as a store manager, I realized it was just not what I wanted to do forever. Getting my masters was always a goal. Boom! I stepped out on faith and submitted my two weeks... So there I was unemployed and living in a new place (a BIG place), Atlanta, GA, attending Clark Atlanta University for my MBA in Marketing. Whew! Those 2 years was indeed an experience of a lifetime, many highs and many lows! But I made it through, finished and obtained my MBA but the end result was not what I imagined. So again, there I was with another degree and no job. However, this time it didn't last as long, I was blessed to obtain a entry level project management role with a Fortune 100 company.
Fast forward 7 years now, I managed to stay with the company, receive promotions, become a corporate trainer and obtain my Professional Project Management Certification. However, 3 years ago I started searching to fulfill my creative passions as well as additional sources of income. For the last 2 years, I have been operating my own travel business. Assisting people (mostly women of color) with their travel accommodations. I managed to become certified and see financial success within my business. However, with every business comes some pitfalls.
So now I want to share my highs, lows and keys to sucess with other travel agents, established and/or just getting started. Also, I want to get back to one of my passions, I developed as a child....WRITING! From poems to speeches to short stories, writing was once a creative outlet for me. However, as I got older and obtained more responsibilities, that outlet became more and more just something I once knew.
With being said, welcome to my personal website that will include my blog where I will share pieces of my world, from travel to my personal style and obsessions to life hacks I use day to day.
I AM KELSEY B.
