We’re Going Global, Baby!

Boy, do I have some delicious news.

I’m really excited to be sharing some BIG news with you. At this point, I can’t tell you everything just yet, but I’ll give you the preliminary information and what you can expect in the very near future.

You ready for it?! It’s pretty freakin’ awesome.

In addition to my current business – I have started another business with three other amazing people that are truly the coolest and most fascinating business savvy entrepreneurs I know. The four of us — we’ll be rocking the online world very soon. Seriously, watch for us in a BIG, beautiful way.

What’s the business you ask?

We started a LIVE streaming business. It’s called Events without Borders. We were able to test our services at a recent event (we streamed to over eleven countries!) – and now we’ve created a kickin’ business out of it. We’re live streaming from in-person events – to countries all over the world. Now you can be nice to your carbon footprint, be in the comfort of your own home — and attend an event!

See, I told you. It’s awesome.

My team at Solamar is creating our brand and our website right now. So watch for it. Trust me… keep tabs on it. This is a business not to miss. (The website will be found here when we have it live: http://www.YourEventWithoutBorders.com – stay tuned for that!)

Technology. Yum.

More to come on this, I promise – very soon.

As I mentioned earlier… I am proudly working on this innovative (ground-breaking!) business with three other incredible people. My partners… Andrea J. Lee, Jimbo Marshall and Jeremie Miller. Just so you can get a glimpse of how cool this business is… here are some pictures of the Events Without Borders team.

We’re going global, baby.

If you happen to be interesting in a live streaming option, ping me at Chelsea@TheNoDak.com. I would love to chat with you about it!

Oh, PS… I forgot to mention… I’m organizing a TEDx event in Vancouver, British Columbia on December 7th. Yes, TED rocks… and I’m thrilled to be organizing the first ever TEDxYVR event in that area with Andrea J. Lee. Watch for more info on this. I’ll send you to the website soon to check out the speakers, the sponsors… and just some really cool geeky stuff. AND Events Without Borders will be there, too! So if you can’t attend live – you can attend via video! More to come…

Okay, okay… I’m rambling. It’s 2:30am… and I’m damn excited. Talk to you soon! Ciao for now! -C

What’s in a Name?

Ah, yes. I think I may be having a small identity crisis.

This might come as a surprise to you (if you don’t know me personally)… but my real name is Chelsea Perkins. Yep, that’s my maiden name. Even though I’m divorced now, most people know me by the name of Chelsea Moser.

While going through my divorce – I was deep into the important stages of building a business. People knew me by Chelsea Moser – and now everything is under Chelsea Moser… no one knows me as anything else – aside from people in my past. And in order to keep my brand consistent and build my business without a change in branding… I didn’t want to rock the boat and confuse people by changing my name back after the divorce. So I put my business thinking cap on and made the choice to not make any changes.

I struggle with this from time to time because I can’t decide if I should stick with my married name (it’s been almost 5 years using Chelsea Moser) …or go back to my maiden name. I now have an established business and I’m not so worried about not being recognized by my name now. The name is in my business… that’s my brand. Perhaps – online – I just leave it the way it is and on a personal level I change it back to Perkins.

That’s what I struggle with.

If the plan was to get married again, there’s no use in changing my name now. But if marriage isn’t in the cards for me… am I supposed to be comfortable with a life known as “Chelsea Moser”.

Hm… yes, it’s complicated.

Maybe it’s a sense of belonging that I’m struggling with. Sharing someone’s name is so important to me (such a strong traditional thing that I adore) – and me not sharing my name with anyone other than an ex-husband… we’ll it just doesn’t make me thrilled. I’ve moved on and so should my name, right?

So the time is now. Should I change my name back to my maiden name. Or just leave it… and trust that it really doesn’t matter what my last name is?

Chelsea Perkins. Chelsea Moser. Which is it?
