Hey there! I’m Charlie Wedel, a 32-year-old, conscious web guy from Wisconsin. What does that mean? Well, professionally, I develop stunning websites, graphics, and marketing materials for entrepreneurs, solopreneurs, and small businesses. I create flashy videos, produce music, and help these businesses develop systems that optimize how they run their business. I’m also a certified Reiki Master and Myofascial Release Practitioner so I like to view things from a “oneness” perspective, and focus on conscious business practices.
10 years ago, I struggled with the typical 9 to 5 day job because I felt like my life was being sucked away from me. This was not how I wanted to live my life. So I started to learn and develop skills that brought me excitement and curiosity. During this learning period, I worked a few day jobs so I could pay my bills, but the rest of the time I was developing my skills and teaching myself everything that I know now. Yes, I taught myself (just about) everything I know, and it’s been the most rewarding thing I’ve ever done.
One of the coolest things that I’ve done was in 2012 when I built a social network for Lightworkers, called Our Ascension. With no budget, and just under 1 year, I gatherered an online community of over 2,000 people from all over the world, who enjoyed coming to the site to share their stories of personal and spiritual growth, wisdom, and to engage in conscious connections. Unfortunately for Our Ascension, my life took me in a different direction and I was no longer able to administer the network, and after a fatal server crash, I lost it all. But it was truly a remarkable online space, and I still have some amazing friends that I met through Our Ascension.
After that, I made the move to a small hippie town in California called Ojai, where I co-founded a holistic healing center. Taking everything that I learned prior to that, and continuing to learn new skills (that’s where I became a holistic healing practitioner), I developed marketing strategies, produced large retreats of over 300 people, and helped our center gain notoriety where we were awarded the “Best of Ojai for Holistic Medicine” in 2014.
I’m now excitedly living in Los Angeles with my partner Brionne, our 10-year-old cat Thomas, and our cute fluffy white dog named Mambe. When I’m not being a conscious web guy, you will most likely find me camping in the forest or on the beach, detoxing at the local Korean Spa, or dancing my brains out on a local dance floor.
