Gutsy woman


You are awesome and brilliant, and looking for more.

So what GIVES?

It can feel like an uphill battle at times because you’re more than willing to DO THE WORK.

Fact is…there are just some things you can’t do without a kick in the rear. Sometimes, self-doubt, vulnerability, and fear get in the way, and you need someone to push you through those limiting beliefs to the life you want to be living.

Gutsy Woman I see you

I see you and I am here to give you that kick in the butt you need.

Hi, I am Amanda, I am that no-nonsense, no BS friend you wish you had (or are maybe a little scared to have). I excel at helping Gutsy women identify what they want in life, what is holding them back, and then pushing them (and yes maybe delivering a little kick) through to the other side to living the Gutsy Life, a life on purpose.


I know you, I was you


I decided to become a life coach when I realized that what I needed was someone to get me off my butt and stop feeling sorry for myself and get me being/acting/living the life I was meant to live: the Gutsy Life. I realized that if I needed that push, so do others, and as my friends will attest, I can be rather pushy (in a good way they swear!). I realized that I had tried and failed so many times to get myself where I wanted to be but the good news for you is that now I know how to do it, I know what it takes to do it because I tried it all. I know what you need because I was you!

I feel so inspired to help you because I have finally found myself and I know how empowering that is. I want to help you do the same! I am ready to take on your fears and doubts and give you the kick in the butt you need to live the Gutsy Life!

My Mission

My mission is to build a tribe – a tribe of gutsy women, empowering and pushing each other to make a positive change in their lives and in the world.
