TURNING CREATIVE IDEAS INTO CAREERS
Hello Beautiful Creative,
A huge thank you for stopping by and a big welcome.
Chaalu Creative Academy was founded by Creative Director & Creative Business Mentor Jai Koo-Ven.
Jai is also the owner of Luxury Candle & Wellness Brand, Chaalu Candle Co & Chaalu Spa.
'Chaalu' means 'Beautiful' in Dhivehi which is the national language of The Maldives and a huge inspiration behind her brand. She also named it after the Creative Academy as she like how Chaalu Creative Academy meant 'Beautiful Creative Academy'.
ABOUT CHAALU CREATIVE ACADEMY
Chaalu Creative Academy helps creative people to utilise their ideas and talents and turn them into creative careers.
As a Creative Entrepreneur, Jai would often come up with a million and one creative ideas, but she had no idea of how to utilise them or turn them into a business. She spent 17 years creating creative businesses and in that time her work has been featured in various magazines including the front page of Wedding Ideas Magazine She also designed and created her own jewellery range which was featured in luxury boutiques as well as Birmingham NEC and other shows across the UK.
Whilst building some of her creative businesses, Jai worked in jobs which made her feel like her creativity was being starved. She was completely fed up with the 9-5 corporate robot jobs and wanted to break free and unleash her inner creativity.
Utilising all of her expertise, Jai launched Chaalu Creative Academy after 5 years of planning and research. She wanted to help other creatives to build their confidence and create careers utilising their talents. Since launching Chaalu Creative Academy, she can gladly say that she has achieved that goal. She now lives the life of her dreams doing everything she loves and helping clients all over the World create their dream careers too. Jai's first book will be published in 2021. None of this happened overnight and she needed to do a lot of planning and adapting to current trends and global markets to succeed.
Jai failed many times, but she has never given up and is an inspiration to us all that with hard work comes great rewards. "To me, the biggest mistake is not trying in the first place!" she often says to her clients.
Whether you are a wannabe Etsy Shop Owner, YouTuber, Jewellery Maker, Yoga Teacher, Artist or have any other creative ambitions then we are here to help you.
Jai offers two services to her clients -
