Let’s be honest. It can be overwhelming to try and build a sustainable and thriving business while also juggling your own personal needs. Honestly, at one point I wondered if I was capable of doing it. Then, I was introduced to the amazing Amber Lilyestrom. Successful business mentor, sales and branding expert, author, keynote and mom, Amber is a true light in the business world. She is joining me today to share powerful insights on how to activate our gifts and live out our bigger vision. 

Today’s episode is all about discovering how to create a business that is not only more sustainable but also more fulfilling and that allows us to be present and capture the goodness of life. As a mom of two little ones, Amber speaks to the importance of living an “and both” life where you can be both a business owner and a human. With hard work and dedication, Amber was able to reach six-figures and beyond in her business while also becoming a mother of two. Through her journey, she learned to prioritize family and her own mental health and build a business that works with her life. Amber’s story is an inspiring reminder that it is possible to achieve your dreams, even in the toughest of times!
