Amanda's mantra is “helping women connect with their best selves, so they can live their best lives”
So very often during a woman’s life, they feel invisible, for example, when motherhood comes around, they become entrenched in caring, nurturing and connecting with their children and at the same time trying to the balance all other aspects of life as a whole. They strive to be the perfect - the perfect mother, wife, employee, entrepreneur, daughter, sister and more.
Hitting their 50’s and 60’s, through menopause, there is a sinking feeling that they have lost their identities, their dreams and aspirations; they often feel invisible, aged, and sometimes irrelevant. Resulting in the feeling that they have lost that inner girl and the dreams that they held so close.
Amanda believes that women need to grab the oxygen mask for themselves first, filling their lungs and souls, in order to be able to give back fully to their children, family, friends and community.
Having a “sisterhood” to reach out to allows for women to gain the support they need and help encourage each other through all stages of their lives empowering all women at every age to be the best versions of themselves.
Amanda will be part of the outstanding panel of women at the launch of HerWit next week, Tuesday, 21st May 2019 entitled, "From Purpose to Profit: How Successful Females-Led Businesses Have Created Sustainable Enterprises While Making A Difference, where she shares her experiences and knowledge on how her passion to help empower women to become the best versions of themselves through a for-profit business.
Please do join us for an evening of cocktails followed by an exciting and important discussion that is on many people's mind, ‘can I make money and still make a difference?’
