Hi! I'm Cheli

​I'm the author and creator of live well explore often.

Thanks for visiting my website! So what can i tell you about myself? I'm Nigerian-American, a single parent to two young adults, and an Executive in the Construction Data industry.  Interesting fact: I graduated college at 19.  Not because I was a prodigy per say, but because I excelled at moving fast through life.  Always trying to get to the next stage.  The new stage.  But why? It was my impulsive reaction to overcoming life's trauma.  But I didn't know that at the time.


I do now.

And with that awareness came the realization that being present and mindful was the real antidote - not moving fast through life's moments.  We can't always forecast the joy or unexpected disappointments life will bring us, but that does not mean we should not be present through it all - the good, the bad, and the ugly.

I share my experience as I grow through this mindful way of living on my blog posts as well as through hosting vision workshops to encourage my mantra - Live Well Explore Often.

"Anyone can touch awakening in whatever job he or she enjoys the most.  The most important thing is to just be ourselves and live our lives as deeply and mindfully as we can". - Thich Nhat Hanh

Live Well Explore Often:



Passionate about Wisdom, Aesthetics, and Wanderlust!

I started blogging in the spring of 2017 on livewellexploreoften.com. I found myself writing and sharing more on topics that inspired my preferred way of living- mindfulness, surrender, manifesting, gratitude, creating routines, embracing change, and respecting my voice. 


I created this blog and my mantra to share my wisdom, experience, mistakes, triumphs, and my passions as I navigate life with a little more intention, self-mastery, and a whole lot of grace. 

The feedback I kept receiving was “you should be a motivational speaker” or “are you a life coach?” The “impostor syndrome” hindered me from moving forward with my intention as a life coach and motivational speaker for quite some time.


Eventually, I had to overcome self-doubt and just do it! That’s how my Vision Workshop was born. I hope you'll join me on this journey.
