Client Testimonial

"Kim + Chelsea helped me identify brands to pitch, create a personalized pitch and then negotiate a rate that was 3x higher than what I charged in the past. I am a full-time blogger and would have never fathomed to do brand work as supplemental income without them!"- Marley, @MarleysMenu​

Client Testimonial

Before working with Chelsea + Kim

“I had worked with a few brands for little (or no) pay. I lacked confidence in my abilities and pricing, so I was accepting unpaid jobs for "exposure" or for very little pay.. I didn't know what the industry standard pricing was, and I also lacked confidence in my abilities (I thought that surely brands wouldn't want or need to work with me when there are so many others out there with more followers, etc.)”


After working with Chelsea + Kim


"Kim and Chelsea gave me the pep talk and confidence that I needed! Since my coaching sessions with them, I have signed two of my largest contracts to date and have the confidence to pitch more brands! I now have tangible goals set for myself, with their help, and am SO excited for what the rest of the year will bring! Because of these ladies, I definitely know my worth! I feel comfortable with my pricing and my ability to negotiate with brands, solely due to the conversations that I've had with them! Kim and Chelsea are awesome and relatable - I want to be friends with them! They are also very professional, personalized, and realistic with their coaching. They will give you all of the pep talks that you need to go out there and get some $$$."

Brands our clients have booked after working with us

We are Chelsea & Kim of $10k+ under 10k.

And for the first few months of our foodie careers, we wanted to work, but we held back. We let our follower count dictate our actions. We did not think our skillset was enough to work with brands. We accepted low-paying jobs because we thought we could not negotiate higher rates.


And we were burnt out, defeated and never thought we could make a full-time income.


Can you relate?

If so then you probably also know what it feels like to... 

  • Try every method under the sun and never succeed.
  • Be so tired of piecing together information 
  • Feel desperate for the answers.
  • Feel like giving up


We got serious about our desire to control our destiny and create a thriving business doing what we love most. We ditched the feeling of desperation + confusion and got rock solid in our strategies + methods when it came to working with brands.

And in turn we....

  • Landed high paying brand deals
  • Work with brands we love
  • Consistently hit our monthly income goals each month
  • Enjoy a work-life balance

So, Creative Foodie ??


Are you ready to…..

  • Tap into the fullest potential that deep down inside you (and we) both know exists

  • Stop letting time pass you by while you wait to hit certain milestones

  • Build a career that you are truly passionate about and want to actually wake up everyday for

  • Work with brands that spark your creativity and get you excited

  • Make a lucrative income while still being able to have time to do the things you love

  • JUMP into the next level of yourself!

But wait we know! 

We know you are also...

  • Scared AF to reach out to brands

  • Worried that if you state a rate that is too high, a brand will walk away

  • Unsure of how to market yourself and your work to a brand

  • Nervous that you won’t have consistent brand deals each month to hit your $ goal

  • Terrified that you will waste your time and effort building a business that does not work out

  • Fearful that everyone you know will judge you for taking the leap into the creative foodie space

What Others Are Saying

Client Testimonial

"My expectation going into the meeting with Kim and Chelsea was to create a new marketing strategy for the next quarter. What I didn't expect was to walk away with a new strategy, increased confidence, a change in my pricing (I didn't even realize how badly I needed this!), increased confidence, how to identify opportunities and negotiate with brands, increased confidence, knowing and understanding the value I provide and create for businesses and umm, did I mention increased confidence? I'm so excited for the next quarter, I've already started applying everything I learned from the lovely duo and I can't wait to see what lies ahead!"- Amrita, @MyKaleKitchen

"Chelsea + Kim were able to provide plenty of resources to help set up my media kit, pricing, and templates to use to contact brands. No question was off the table, I was able to ask ALL my questions (even if I thought they were ridiculous) and they were answered in a clear, relatable way and joyful manner that made you feel respected and understood. I now have the confidence to contact brands knowing I am putting my best foot forward." - Holly @bbqbakers

"Working with Chelsea and Kim is like getting expert advice from two close friends who you can talk to about anything! I really needed that reassurance in the beginning to hone my confidence, now I feel very confident about every pitch I write!" - Angie @angiehelvey.eats

Client Testimonial

"I loved working with Kim and Chelsea ... They were able to help me with all of the questions I had on the entire process of working with brands - from finding them, to reaching out, to negotiating, contracts, and pricing. More than that they helped give me the confidence I needed to go out there and pitch as well as charge what I am worth. I am excited to see what I can do when I put their advice to work!" - Megan @DonutWorry_BeHealthy

"Chelsea and Kim really helped me so much with pricing, as I was really struggling not in getting clients, but in how to price my work and then how to raise rates to meet that. They helped me not only raise my day rate 160% with one client for ongoing work, but another client raising rates almost 300% for one project. They also helped me with the confidence to stand my ground when negotiating with another client - that negotiation alone resulted in 4 figures of increased income each month. I honestly wouldn't have been able to do it without them!" - Elise, @EliseTriesToCook | @justelsthings
