    204 🌟 From Reality TV to Real Self-Discovery: Kelly Chase's Journey Beyond Love is Blind

    204 🌟 From Reality TV to Real Self-Discovery: Kelly Chase's Journey Beyond Love is Blind

    In this empowering episode of The Midlife Makeover Show, we sit down with the effervescent Kelly Chase, a woman who wears many hats: entrepreneur, social influencer, speaker, and reality TV star from Netflix's "Love is Blind." Kelly isn't just a familiar face from our screens; she's the driving force behind Goddess Magic, a coaching program that fuses business strategy with mindset and relationship coaching to help women step into their power and live their best lives.
     
    Kelly opens up about the transformative power of letting go and the importance of releasing control to align with the life you're meant to live. She shares candid stories from her own journey, including the challenges she faced post-reality TV fame, her evolving self-image, and the deep work she's done peeling back layers of limiting beliefs.
     
    Throughout the episode, Kelly delves into the art of saying "no" to others in order to say "yes" to oneself, and the courage it takes to stand in one's truth, even when it means walking away from something good for something better. She discusses her experience on "Love is Blind," reflecting on her decision at the altar and the personal growth that has come from it.
     
    Kelly's insights into the power of self-awareness, self-worth, and the pursuit of happiness are nothing short of inspiring. Whether you're navigating the choppy waters of dating, seeking to understand your own worth, or simply striving for a life filled with joy and authenticity, Kelly's message is a beacon of hope and a reminder that it's never too late to chase the life you desire.
