Black Heels and Tractor Wheels – Chelsea Millar


Black Heels and Tractor Wheels Podcasts are a Rural Women NZ initiative in which they share stories from a range of women around New Zealand.

Chelsea Millar is a self-proclaimed Agvocate and owner of Grass Roots Media, after previously working with FMG and AgriHQ. She has stepped into her Boss Lady Role – building her own business from the ground up. She’s going from strength to strength in the business world and has most recently won the Emerging Business category at our very own NZI Rural Women NZ Business Awards. In today’s episode we talk about gathering your time around you, creating a special team culture and telling epic rural stories.
