Yesterday I had the pleasure of meeting a beautiful lady who has achieved so much at the young age of 22 - Ms Chelsea Phillips, who presented to 160 local students at our Young Entrepreneurs Breakfast at Rydges Esplanade Resort Cairns proudly sponsored by TheSPACE!
Chelsea shared her entrepreneurial story of achievements and failures and how they have molded her into the business woman that she is today. She explained the lessons that she has learnt from the success, the failure and the struggles faced with being an Entrepreneur. She encouraged the students to take risks, believe in their dreams and if you fall down, get up, reset and go again. "Don't be afraid to take every opportunity that presents itself and see where it takes you and your career. Not everything has to be planned." she said. My takeaway was - To be successful in today's workforce, you need GRIT, PASSION and a lot of HARD WORK.
Thank you to our wonderful sponsors, the teachers, and students who joined us for Breakfast. We hope that you enjoyed the breakfast and found inspiration in Chelsea's words. A special thank you to Ms Christine Clifford, from the Space for her advice and official closing.
