Welcome! Glad you landed here!
My name is Chelann Gienger and here is a snapchat of my story-
I was born in Renton, Washington and raised in a mountain cabin on Snoqualmie Pass. Because I was homeschooled until I went to college at 16-years-old, I had massive opportunity to chase my passions throughout childhood.
This lead to me starting my first business at the age of 15 and from that point on, I was hooked on all things entrepreneurship. I decided right then and there that I wanted to always be a creator of things, not just a consumer.
Two days after graduating high school and two weeks before graduating college (yeah… I know, how does that work? I explain more in my audio bio.), the doors of NUYU Juice Bar were opened and my adventures of being an 18-year-old owner of a brick-and-mortar business began.
NUYU is a café style juice bar where we serve fresh, all-natural juices, smoothies and other healthy foods to hundreds of customers each week. The purpose behind everything we do at the bar is to inspire and infuse new health, new energy and a new you inside of every person we encounter. You can learn more about NUYU by watching an interview with me about it!
The whole idea for Entrepreneur Before 25 sparked a few months after the start of NUYU. During that time, it dawned on me that life is all about surrounding yourself with like-minded people who are running the same race you are. For me, that meant young entrepreneurs who were seeking a life of freedom and balance while making their dreams and goals a reality. But there was only one small issue… There were hardly any young entrepreneurs around me. And if that was the case for me, I figured it must be the case for other young entrepreneurs as well.
What’s the most logical way to solve this problem? To create a platform that attracts young entrepreneurs, of course! And just like that, Entrepreneur Before 25 was born.
EB25 interviews inspiring entrepreneurs who started their entrepreneurial journey at the age of 25 and under.
My goal with every business and venture I begin is to inspire and empower the younger generation to live a life of freedom and balance through the platform of being an entrepreneur and Christ-Follower.
After all, life is too short not to spend it being fulfilled in every aspect.
