Hi! I’m Audrey Chaney. Thank you for expressing an interest in me and who I am. My journey has been one of adventure, life lessons and exploring who I am in this world each and every day.
I knew from a young age I wanted to be an entrepreneur. My parents weren’t businessmen or women, but my spirit had a desire to create something of my own, and I have honored this through the times that have been exciting, scary and very challenging at times.
I started my first business shortly after graduating college from California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo where I graduated with a B.S. in Horticulture. I built a brand, Botanica Events, Inc. that specialized in wedding and event floral design and then morphed into a specialty rental business servicing all of Northern and Central California. I am an AIFD Designer (American Institute of Floral Design) and have been published on countless international blogs, print publications and have been on televisions shows such as WE TV’s Platinum Weddings and TLC’s Mom and Dad Marry Me. With this business, I grew a team of employees, designers and a brand. I owned this business for 12 years; however, over time I realized my passion had changed and it was time to re-evaluate what I wanted to create in my own life, so I decided on a career change into real estate.
Over the years of owning and operating my businesses, I have learned that my strengths are in business set-up, efficiencies in processes and creating a brand and sustainable lifestyle. I’ve developed ways of leveraging time and efficiency to make finances and processes work to my advantage. I’ve also paired my attention to detail and discernment to what is and isn’t working in my own businesses when it comes to marketing, client interaction and contracts. Focusing on these aspects has made a healthier business and a better lifestyle for myself within these businesses.
I’ve been able to design a balanced lifestyle for myself now where I can have friendships, connections and time to take care of myself. I currently work as a full-time Realtor and I also encourage and support small businesses to grow to their maximum potential through my consulting business.
I’d love to hear what your story is, and I can’t wait to hear what your goals are! Send me a personal message and let’s connect!
