"I heard Amber speak in November 2014 at the NH Conference for Women. Her heartfelt talk connected with so many in the room, myself included. I proceeded to watch several of her videos online had have since had the opportunity to meet her in person. Amber truly cares for helping women create the life and business they deserve. She’s motivating, caring and as genuine as they come. "

"Amber's speech was so touching and authentic when she spoke at the recent Women's Expo in Manchester. She really has a gift of connecting with women on an emotional level that is so sincere and from the heart. Her ability to be vulnerable is something I admire in Amber. As she spoke of her birth experience with her daughter, how she stopped breathing and how she had the realization during those scary moments that she had more to live for, I looked around and women were wiping away the tears. She is so real and down to earth. She wants nothing more than to bring out the best in other women trying to create their own dreams and for them to be successful. Follow your passion she says...she has inspired me to find mine!”
