Amy's Final Push will inspire you to recall the reason why you started your creative passion in the first place and to tap back into that beginner’s energy!



“I found that so many creative entrepreneurs were burning the candle at both ends.  They had so much going on that they were letting their health fall by the wayside.  This was a community that really needed support when it came to their health.”
“When it comes to our energy, our health, and fueling our hustle, it’s all about building up our reserves.  So if we can do more of the things that we love doing and it brings us energy or joy, those are just as important as making money.”
“Oftentimes what I see when it comes to creative entrepreneurs is that they really fear delegation.”
“Done is better than perfect.  Perfect is a myth and so often we hold ourselves back from completing a project or putting ourselves out there because we don’t think that either we ourselves or our work is perfect yet.”
