Small town girls like me become our own bosses because we want financial, location, and time freedom
But too many of us end up working 3x as hard for ⅓ the money, which keeps us stuck on start.
My goal is to empower and educate every woman entrepreneur to be 100% self-sufficient AND 100% self-employed, using her innate talents to elevate her finances, her family, her community, and our world.
Hi, I’m Amanda. Here’s my story.
No matter how bright and determined your entrepreneurial spirit, it’s hard to maintain the confidence and resilience you need to succeed professionally when your personal life is toxic and abusive. It’s one thing to summon the courage to leave a bad situation…it’s an entirely different thing to summon the money, especially when you’ve been financially dependent on your spouse for 10 years.
When I was climbing out of my post-divorce hole (financially and emotionally), I learned that financial abuse is a thing, and it occurs in 99% of domestic violence cases. While it was comforting to know that I wasn’t alone in my experience, it was devastating to know that so many had been and are going through their own.
When I became a business coach, I was equally disturbed by what I frequently heard from clients. While they weren’t victims of abuse, their confidence and resilience was just as eroded as mine had once been because their dream of entrepreneurship was becoming a nightmare.
The business they started on the side to supplement their paycheck was making too much money to give up but not enough money to quit their job, and there were only so many hours in a day.
The flexibility to work around their kids’ schedules sounded great—but in reality, it meant working way past bedtime to get it all done.
And the most agonizing of all was to hear these brilliant women questioning whether they and their ideas were really good enough, since they hadn’t been able to make any real money pursuing their purpose.
I realized how easy it is to lose our sense of freedom when seeking security, whether in a relationship or a business of our own.
And since freedom is one of my core values, I’ve become a passionate advocate for it, for all women.
Today I contribute and volunteer for organizations dedicated to the economic justice of domestic violence survivors, and I coach women business owners on how to grow their income, influence, and impact with strategic plans that get sustainable results.
Because when women are financially empowered, we elevate not only ourselves and our families, but our communities and the world as well.
When you’re ready to leverage your innate talents into a profitable, fulfilling, and influential business, let’s talk.
I’ll bring the wine. 😉
