About Chelsea Shelton

Chelsea is a former Gold City Ventures student and Etsy and Teachers Pay Teachers Seller. Once an elementary school teacher, she is now a stay-at-home mom/work-from-home mom pursuing entrepreneurship.

Her journey began after coming across an MSNBC article about a stay-at-home mom that had made $150,000 over the course of the year. Curious, she signed up to take an e-printable course called Gold City Ventures. Believing the opportunity was too good to be true, she complete the lessons from the course and opened an Etsy store on February 5th called McMaglo Creates.

While her experience selling on Etsy has been a very positive and rewarding one, it is definitely not easy. She learned that you have to put in the work hard to achieve what you want, but anything is possible. She prides herself on customer satisfaction and works hard to make sure she delivers high-quality and value with each printable she creates and makes her buyers’ experience the best it can be. 

When she’s not creating new printables for her stores, Chelsea volunteers on the Board of Directors for her children’s softball league. She also tutors several former students and assists her aunt as a transaction coordinator for her real estate company, the Pierce Pro Home Group. She looks forward to helping others reach their goals and become successful with their Etsy shops.

Teachers Pay Teachers

At the same time her Etsy store was taking off, she decide to open a Teachers Pay Teachers store, as this was something always wanted to do, and given her background in education, it just made sense. She applied the same principles and concepts she learned in Gold City Ventures to her store and within 3 months, she had done $500 in sales. By her 8-month mark, she had done over $1,000 in sales.
