Get to Know Chelsea!
After working in the male-dominated world of commercial real estate— and feeling as though her voice and creative potential was stifled—Chelsea Sonksen set out on a mission to surround herself with more strong, creative, courageous women. She founded Bossladies Magazine in 2016 and began telling the stories of the most inspiring entrepreneurs, one city at a time.
Bossladies is a high-end biannual print magazine perfect for every woman’s coffee table or studio. The first two issues highlight more than 50 bossladies in Los Angeles, and Issue 03 and 04 will feature the women of New York. Bossladies also hosts a series of pop-up work parties called Work Sesh, a monthly Fireside Chat, and occasional workshops on everything from Branding to Instagram.
