Hey! I’m Chandra.
Hi friend! Welcome, I’m so glad you are here. I help women grow the sales and profits of their handmade businesses.
I live in central Michigan with my husband and 5 (yes, 5!) sweet and rambunctious kids. I love being a sign maker, getting to use my creative talents, and helping women contribute to their families.
I started my wood sign business almost 8 years ago! It was out of a heart of wanting to help contribute to my family’s income. When I was pregnant with baby #3 I felt God leading me to start a business. The problem was, I had no money to invest. He showed me 2 Peter 1:3, “His divine power has given us everything we need for a godly life through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness.” So I looked around at what I did have.
I had some old weathered decking boards, some house paint, and some paintbrushes inherited from my Great Aunt and Grandmother. That day, Wheatland Avenue Designs was born!
As sales increased I had to learn how to handle the business, my family, my faith, and care for myself. To be honest, I didn’t always balance everything well. Through those tough times, I put systems in place to still spend time with my family, not burn out as quickly, grow my faith, and have a thriving business that I love. The things I teach now are passing those lessons and knowledge to others that want the same for their families and businesses.
I want you to know that if I can do this you can too. I fully believe there is a calling on your life and an amazing future. It starts with you saying, “Yes” to all that is in front of you right now. I am rooting for you and praying blessings on your business and family. You’ve got this friend.
