Meet Chloe Adams of One Lemon at a Time

Today we’d like to introduce you to Chloe Adams.

So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
I began dancing at the young age of three. I grew up in Seattle, Washington and yes, it rains as much as everyone says it does. Throughout middle and high school I competed in dance competitions and conventions. My senior year of high school I moved to California with my parents, and my eyes were open to another level of dancers.

Directly after graduation, I applied for the Edge Performing Arts Center scholarship program. I was accepted and trained with top LA choreographers, vocal coaches, and improve coaches for a full year and prepared me to be a professional dancer. I was soon signed with an agent and began auditioning. My first professional job was a LaLaLand VR YouTube special. I assist many LA choreographers, which has allowed me to travel worldwide and frequently assist for CLI Studios.

This past holiday season, I toured as part of the ensemble of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer: The Musical National Tour. We traveled to 25 cities, 15 states and performed in 42 shows, all in 5.5 weeks. This sparked a love for musical theatre within me, and I am excited to continue training in this style and dive into vocal lessons. I began assistant teaching at a young age & began teaching my own classes at 16. I recently had a light spark inside of me to teach, inspire & create with my own knowledge and choreography & am excited to see where this journey of teaching takes me. Dancing isn’t my only love, yoga has a large part of my heart as well. I began taking yoga and soon fell in love with the mindful practice.

Within three months of beginning my yoga journey, I embarked on teacher training and am a certified Yoga Sculpt instructor and currently teach at CorePower Yoga. Yoga is such a powerful practice. As I explain in one of my blog posts, “I honor having the ability to spend 60 minutes with however many students and evolve ourselves, within one space, as a unit. Connecting to our mind, body, and soul. And what’s so beautiful is each yogi is in a completely different chapter of their journey. Yet we all have the opportunity to come into a safe space, ground ourselves and deepen our practice, in union.”

I recently began a blog named, “one lemon at a time”, leading with truth and honesty. I began this blog after much internal searching and growth and decided I wanted to share my thoughts and adventures somewhere other than social media. Writing has been something I’ve loved to do ever since I can remember and this was a great way to pursue this passion. I am currently studying my BA in Business Management and am looking forward to seeing where this degree takes me. I love seeing people being vulnerable and authentically themselves not only in person, of course, but most importantly through social media.

There are so many expectations society holds us accountable for, and I believe the more we fight against these standards and be fully ourselves, as we are, the more beautiful and passionate social media can become. We need more compassion and authenticity in our world, and we need to release judgment and perfection.

Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
Struggles and challenges are a large inspiration to the name of my blog, one lemon at a time. My favorite color is yellow & I have a love for lemons, it was inevitable I wanted to use lemons when naming my blog. Last year I experienced a lot of loss in my life. I lost three very important people within four months of each other, and it truly sent my world spinning. I found myself focusing on the intention: One day at a time.

When naming my blog, I immediately thought of the saying, “when life gives you lemons, make lemonade.” I took this saying and my intention and created the name: one lemon at a time. With the purpose/intention of whatever lemons life throws at you take each challenge, struggle, obstacle… LEMON, one day at a time.

Please tell us about One Lemon at a Time.
As a book lover, I am inspired by writers who are open, vulnerable, honest, those who speak their truth, with purpose, and that’s what I wanted to lead with through my blog. As I explain in the about section within my blog, I didn’t have any attachment to how successful my blog is or will be. All I can hope is that even one person leaves my blog with the feeling of happiness, self-worth or a small bit of inspiration that they can apply in their own lives.

I use my blog for self-guidance and growth throughout this adventure called life, and if I have the opportunity to connect with others who may be a part of similar adventures, that is more than I can ask for. You will find in most of my posts I will be working through something or it will be a topic that I am discovering while I write, allowing my readers to be a part of each post & be able to sit alongside me during each chapter of my journey.

If you had to go back in time and start over, would you have done anything differently?
I think no matter how much we know there is always still more to learn. I don’t think I would “start over” because I would lose everything I have gained thus far in my life and I don’t want to change who I am. I love who I am, as I search and grow internally to learn more about myself. If I were to start over I would lose all the adventures and lemons, life has presented me. There’s no way to search for a “perfect” life because you’d be searching for something that just doesn’t exist. You have to trust that the moment you are having is the moment you are suppose to have because it is the moment you are in.
