That's me, Amanda Grant, and my family: three daughters, one son, one son-in-law, my husband and my wasband. Jeff is my husband and father of my two youngest children. Rick is my wasband and the father of my two oldest children. While some people find it shocking that we hang out together - it’s pretty normal to us.
My philosophy is to try to find a "better than" solution whenever I can. Instead of trying to be perfect, I try to make a better choice. While it sounds great to create change completely and immediately, making improvements is better than nothing. Here's an example: I want pure almond butter but making it from scratch is not realistic. However, grinding organic almonds at the store is "better than".
Oh - and yes…I’m obsessed with doTERRA essential oils and living a healthy lifestyle.
My motto is BE BOLD : feeling fear is not a bad thing, change the thoughts that are creating it and take action.
My word is OPPORTUNITY : everywhere you look there is room for growth.
My signature color is ORANGE : it makes me happy.
I started in corporate hi-tech in the mid 80’s. My positions were primarily marketing software and devices to enterprise corporations. Snooze. I love using technology but it doesn't interest me. For many years I talked about starting a business that would allow me to focus on something I care about. I used to say, "If I could only do tradeshows that were about toys, babies, food or anything more interesting than this."
Then, it hit me. If I want to make money doing something I care about - I’d better get to it. On Mothers Day, 2016, I asked my family to attend a presentation on how I was going to start a new business. I showed third-party research about myself and a few business models I was exploring. I had a goal, measurable objectives, a strategy and a timeline. Most importantly – I had accountability. I said it out loud and I asked for their support. I set out to find my new business.
During my new business research, I kept going back to my vision: I want a business that allows me to spend every day positively adding value to my life and people around me. I want to inspire and learn from others. I want to be part of a community of women making a difference.
So here I am - in a community I love that's filled with people helping other people, involved in humanitarian projects effecting lives all over the world, leveraging the skills and knowledge I've developed over the past 30 years. It's been my dream.
