There’s absolutely no way I could possibly sum myself up as all of the above in one tiny post. Trust me. I‘m complicated… Way more complicated than what I could ever write in a couple of paragraphs. But like most things in life, I’ll give it a shot!
I am Chantal McCulligh, a 28-year-old Canadian freelance writer, self-proclaimed outdoors junkie, lover of life, love, travel, and fashion. I’ve worked for myself as a freelance writer (and all of the above) full-time for almost 10 years now, which has presented many fabulous opportunities. When I’m not in Canada, you can find me exploring the world and writing along the way.
The Luxe Maven is where I share my life with others. After becoming a professional freelance writer in 2000, my passion for writing was being consumed by this thing called “work”. I quickly noticed that after ticking away on my keyboard filling in the spaces where other people couldn’t find the words, I was leaving spaces in my own journey. So, I created this website. To share my writing, my experiences, my mistakes, my thoughts, my opinions, my struggles and of course, my sense of humour. And now that I sound like a complete narcissist, allow me to reassure you that my website is so much more than just about me.
Through my words of wisdom (or lack of), I hope to inspire each and every one of my readers and to make a difference in this world with nothing other than a hefty dose of words. It’s my passion to teach people about great products, opportunities, and sights to see. Since I refuse to live to work, it was mandatory for me to find a way to work smarter, not harder. And you can do it too! At The Luxe Maven, you’ll find the secret life of a digital nomad and all the tips you need to follow en suit.
I also run Anxiety-Gone.com, a website dedicated to helping those struggling with mental illness. It’s my dream to travel the world and help people along the way. Whether it’s with anxiety or depression, building a career online, making a killer Instagram, or helping the locals of third world countries survive with next to nothing, that’s what I was born to do.
My entrepreneurial mindset allows me to constantly feel inspired and as a result, I am always coming up with new projects to further my brand, start a new one or turn someone else’s dream into a success.
