  • The wakeup call that led Amber to make a major shift in her life and career
  • What it means to come home to yourself and acknowledge the feelings that live in your body

  • How choosing self-compassion over constant hustling and comparison changed the course of Amber’s life

“You have to give yourself permission to put your own preferences, your own happiness, above everyone else’s.”

“You have to take care of yourself if you’re going to take care of others.”

“What you see in the mirror and how you speak to yourself and your value, what your deep desires are and your needs are, matters…”

“When we are out of alignment we care more about what’s happening outside of us, we care more about other people’s preferences, making other people happy…”

“Intuition… is leading you towards something that is for you.”

“The goal should always be getting in alignment, being in alignment.”

“Be where your feet are.”

“My energy is my magic. My energy is the thing that allows me to make a huge impact.”
