To all the college students and recent graduates...

This one is for all the young people out there. To all the college students and recent graduates. Life does not end after college. The best parts of your life are still to come. 

The first year after college is tough. It’s a weird time in life where everything is uncertain. I know for me, I felt totally and completely lost and it took me a long time to realize that it’s okay to not have it all figured out.

It’s okay to not know what you want to do with your life. It’s okay not know what will come in the next year or month of your life. The truth is, most people don’t know! And the ones that think they know, aren’t always right. 

So, how do you figure it out? How do you move forward in spite of uncertainty? The best advice I can give you is to identify what you do know and let that guide you. If you know you want to travel the world, then use that as your guide and build a future for yourself that allows you to do that. If you love to ski, find a job that allows you to indulge in that passion regularly! Whatever it is for you, trust it, stay true to yourself, let it guide you, and don’t sacrifice it for a job or career that doesn’t fit you. 

Your twenties are for exploring your passions and discovering all that the world has to offer. The best years of your life are not over, in fact, they have barely even begun! You have the opportunity to create a life for yourself that you are truly proud of and you have plenty of time to make it happen. That’s pretty exciting!

The Girls Who Inspired Me to Launch AMR Digital

I want to take a moment to shoutout you one of my favorite #girlboss #influencer accounts @bucketlistbombshellsbucketlistbombshells

One year ago, I was sitting on my couch scrolling through my Facebook feed on my phone, wondering what the efff I was going to do with my life. (I had just quit my job and moved back home with my parents - needless to say it was not a high point in my life). _
I stumbled upon Cassie and Shay’s Instagram @bucketlistbombshells . They were two brilliant young entrepreneurs who had quit their desk jobs and started their own online business while simultaneously traveling the world full time. Their feed was a stunning collection of photos showing them (two best friends) traveling around the world, visiting amazing destinations, and loving life all while making a killer living working remotely. 

Before I knew it I was two years deep in their feed, feeling like a serious stalker! But I didn’t care because, for the first time in a long time I felt inspired and hopeful and excited. I had this amazing realization that this was what I was meant to be doing with my life. 

Looking back now, I can’t believe this is actually my life. I LOVE my job, I work whenever and wherever I want, and I wake up every morning with a burning passion for life. And I owe a huge THANK YOU to these girls @bucketlistbombshells for encouraging me to actually go for it!

I created AMR with the same intention. I want to be that person for you and your business who helps you share your message with the world and transform your dream into a reality!

Young, Wild and Free

When you’re young everyone is obsessed with qualifications (or rather lack of qualification). How many years of experience do you have? How many degrees do you have? Ect. 

When you tell someone you want to build an empire, the first question they ask is what makes you qualified to possibly be able to do that. It’s these questions that make us doubt ourselves and our abilities. We have this idea as a society that as a young professional you must put in your time working some shitty entry level job so that you will eventually be “qualified” to get a job you enjoy. 

I think that’s bullshit. When your trying to create something completely new and revolutionary, nobody is qualified! That’s what makes it new and revolutionary!!! (Duhhh) It doesn’t matter how many years of experience you have, when it comes to building an empire what you really need is passion, ambition and the ability to adapt, evolve and improve as you go. So don’t wait, sometimes you just have to jump and figure out how to fly on the way down!

It's never too late to be whoever you want to be!

I’ve had a print out of this quote hanging in my bedroom for the past five years. It’s one of my all time favorites. 

After graduating from college I took my first job at @yelpsf. I quickly realized that it was a horrible fit for me. I literally felt like I was withering away in a stuffy office while this huge world of opportunity passed me by. (I know that sounds dramatic) but It was completely soul crushing and left me feeling beat down and depressed every single day. 

I couldn’t help but wonder what was wrong with me. There were thousands of other people working this same job, in the same office and they were doing just fine. Why was I so miserable?! ...maybe I was just lazy? Unmotivated? Not cut out for the working world? I thought up countless reasons. It took me a long time to realize that these reasons were really just excuses. I knew I needed a change and a big one but I was scared to start all over.

Finally I couldn’t take it anymore, so I quit my job. I left San Francisco. I changed my circle, surround myself with positive people who knew that there wasn’t anything wrong with me. People who saw I was destined for something bigger and greater in life when I couldn’t see it in myself. It was freaking hard, it took time and adjustment but slowly and surely I felt my fire start burning again! My dreams got bigger, my motivation stronger, and with that came results! And guess what?! AMR is still a tiny little baby with a super bright future and so many more exciting things to come! 

So for anyone out there who may feel stuck, depressed or hopeless in their current situations. Just know, there is nothing wrong with you! Starting over is hard but the payoff is huge. So find yourself a great support system and take the leap! I believe in you!!
