Hi! I’m Amanda
Let’s talk Self Compassion, shall we?
The beautiful women I coach call me their Happiness Guru.
Good gig? You bet it is!
Sharing the very best tools and practices, I help women discover the happiest, healthiest and most successful version of themselves amidst the often chaotic nature of life.
My approach is practical and easy – I find in these days of instant gratification that people need to feel a little shift quickly to gain the courage and confidence to continue on a path, so that’s my goal.
50+ hour work-weeks, international ‘business’ travel and the demands of building a corporate brand in the fast-moving world of technology all while trying to raise happy, healthy kids (YES hot dogs make kids happy but NO hot dogs are not healthy!) and be all things to all people.
My ‘always-on’ world came to a screeching halt one day when I learned:
- that my dad was terminally ill
- my marriage of 17 years was ending
- and in a state of chaos I was raising 2 boys ready to embark on their teens.
Add that to a demanding day job that I loved but demanded more of me than I sometimes felt I could give.
To top it off, I was becoming increasingly aware of the way I was showing up in the work; reactive and not nurturing to myself or those I loved.
It was at this time that I began to search for the very best ways to process my situation, reflect, internalize and emerge as a happier, healthier and more balanced version of me.
This journey took me 2000 miles to California and The Chopra Center where I spend time finding some solid ground; yoga, meditation, self-care…all the things I judged people for doing saying it was self-indulgent and disconnected from real life.
One day not long after my return my sons sat me down, “Mom, we need to talk to you. We just want to know straight up, are you trying some kind of science experiment on us? Because you aren’t yelling at us anymore”.
To have two innocent young boys notice that you were showing up in a kinder more nurturing way is just about the biggest ‘aha moment you can have.
I still get emotional thinking about it.
I believe that inherent in each of us the desire to be successful in all aspects of our lives.
But, sometimes the busyness (and business) of life gets in the way.
When this happens, we often benefit from support, tools and coaching to un-plug, slowdown, become really aware and then begin to experience an amazing shift in our lives. This is exactly how I felt and what has driven me to put together programs to help others realize what I realized… that we each have access to an inner wisdom patiently waiting to be called on.
I’d really love to connect with you.
