Amy discusses the importance of taking action when branching out into new business opportunities. In Amy’s experience, she states, “You have to have the courage to take a risk, because if you don’t, one day you will wake up and your entire life will go by and you’ve been going through the motions but never really got to where you want to be. Listen to your intuition, no one knows what is better for you than you do yourself and do as much research and be as well prepared as you possibly can.”
Amy describes the reciprocal relationship between passive income streams and personal independence as a result of automation. She states, “The more time that you can free up from the things that you are doing, the more revenue streams you can potentially create, the more income you can have, the more clients you can see, and the more time you can have off and have fun…That’s when our creative energy starts to flow.“
Amy embraces taking risks because failure can offer an equally beneficial learning experience. From her experience, she states, “Had I given up after falling flat on my face the first time, I would have just thought I would never be able to make it… it’s just about going back and looking at what worked and what didn’t work and how you’re going to adjust going forward.”
For women who are hesitant to pursue a new venture, Amy reassures us that, “As women, we always wonder if we are good enough—is what I have to offer really any different or more valuable or anything better than what is already out in the market place? We don’t think about how we do business with people we know, we like, and we trust… We constantly have to break through that mindset that we are not enough because there is probably someone out there who is just like us and is waiting for us to share our gifts and secrets with the world.“
