Chelsea Gorsuch was a high school guidance counselor when she got a sign that she should start a business. So, she took it literally and started Joyfully Said Signs. Her love of the written word and a knack for design have allowed her to create works of art that, in her words, “infuse life and love in the homes they hang in.” It is a lot of hard work, but it is fun and rewarding.
Not long ago, Chelsea was able to open a brick and mortar location in Middlebury. The sign shop shares space with her family’s antique business. She is helping with that too as her father recovers from a car accident last summer.
Chelsea is yet another of the many dynamic and inspiring entrepreneurs in Elkhart County. She and her husband Wes and their three children live in Nappanee. They are active members of Grace Community Church. This has been “an amazing dream turned reality,” Chelsea said. “We cannot thank the Lord enough for this opportunity – and our customers.”
