From New York to Bali

Many people are caught up in the rat race and never really venture out of their comfort zone but not Chidi. Chidi went from working a 9-5 job to renogotiating her corporate contract and turning her passions into profit to build a profitable business - not a small feat at all. Did someone say you can't travel and make money while doing it? Chidi begs to differ.

Chidi made the move to Bali and is actually constructing her own home in Bali - talk about a smart, entrepreneural woman.
