Here I am. Finally, FINALLY, back to blogging once again. I decided to do a huge overhaul of my business image lately — and, really, that amounts to a huge overhaul of my LIFE.

I have been working hard for the last year-and-a-half as a financial advisor, helping other women make their own empowered financial decisions; but recently I decided I also want to be a life coach. I want to guide other women to manifest the big stuff: the life, career, soulmate of their dreams. I’m great at manifesting things, and I think it’s about time I share that skill with the world. If I can deliberately create a life and career and perfect other half that *I* love, I know I can also teach anyone else to do the same.

I outlined a lot of my new vision on my updated About Page, and I deleted all of my old posts so I could REALLY start over from zero. I needed a fresh start in my blog and my online presence, and I didn’t want any of the old content on here anymore. It’s time for something NEW and beautiful and very much uniquely ME.

It took me so long to take the leap and make my new blog and business vision a reality. Over the last few months I think I finally realized what FEAR really means. I think I finally slowed down my mind and actually felt into my fear. And it was fucking scary. I put off posting in my blog for so long, I even hesitate to post on my Instagram page, because, in my mind, nothing was “perfect enough” yet. I even wanted to delete my blog’s “About” page as soon as I posted it because it was SCARY. I felt really silly; I felt like a fraud.

I realized that I felt like a fraud because I was finally speaking as my future self — that big, beautiful vision I have of myself that has a strong and confident online presence. That version of Amanda keeps shining through more and more every day, so I had to slow myself down and see everything for what it really was.

I also realized that nothing is ever going to be “perfect” so I just have to push through and DO it. I have heard the saying so many times, but I really experienced it for myself over the last few days that there IS something amazing right on the other side of fear. That’s what I guess it means when they always say “Feel the fear and do it anyway.”

So right now I am totally embracing that scary feeling because I really see that it actually means serious, amazing change. I know that bringing my finance business online and coaching other women in their lives is what I want to do — it’s what lights up my soul. I might not have all the details worked out yet, but at least I can say I am officially “open for business“!

I want to guide other women to have their serious breakthrough in manifesting and deliberate creation just like I did and I want to continue on my journey of empowering women to make their own, independent and seriously abundant financial decisions.

SO … enough about why I’m back. On to the OUTFIT! I took these photos over a month ago and my friend and awesome co-worker, Georgia, keeps yelling at me because I haven’t posted them yet. Well here they are. I’m not usually a leopard-print kind of girl but as soon as I saw this skirt at LOFT I knew I had to have it.

I love how it goes with almost everything and I can easily wear it any time of the year — I know it’s going to look super cute with sheer black tights. I also love how the length isn’t too short and it’s just long enough to wear to the office. It also looks great with boots AND heels. Yay.

Thank you so much for visiting! And don’t forget to follow me on Instagram for all of my latest outfit pics.
