BUSINESS / ORGANIZATION:
The Girl Grotto LLCAtlanta, Georgia
ABOUT THE BUSINESS / ORGANIZATION:I’m Chelsea Jackson, and I created The Girl Grotto to help millennial women start and grow their business. My goal is to break down the world of business in such a way that anyone can understand it, while making it fun!
I host an annual signature event, The Lock-In. This is a business bootcamp where business owners apply to spend 48-hrs with me. During The Lock-In, I evaluate their businesses and we take the necessary actions on the spot to fix it. This is what sets The Girl Grotto apart from others of its kind, because we are “action” based.
THE STORY:I’ve always been obsessed with business and how it works -- even as a child. I started my first business at 8 years of age - a neighborhood candy store and it took off from there!
I started The Girl Grotto on December 31, 2015, because I was so tired of seeing people make the world of business seem so “deep” and complex and I always had a thing for simplifying things for others. I always wanted to start my own business consulting firm, but never had the courage to do it until then. I had started businesses for others and helped them to grow. Even as their businesses were thriving, I remained afraid to step out on my own and take charge for myself. Now, I’m glad I stepped out! I enjoy helping people live their dreams through business ownership.
