Published

on

The Chamber’s Small Business Committee presented Mindful Motivation on Wednesday, June 20th, at the Chamber office.

Writer and speaker Amber Valentine discussed the three keys to being mindful of what motivates you and why it is so important to stay true to who you are as you develop relationships.

Who is Amber Valentine?


Amber Valentine is a self-made success, going from a small-town girl with a less-than-glamorous beginning to teaching millions how to #LiveOutLoud from the stage. She made her first impact through Direct Sales driving around a Pink Cadillac and helping others transform externally with her make-up artistry.

Now, she travels the world with her message of internal transformation through speaking and coaching. Her ultimate goal is to add eternal transformation by helping others LOVE, on the deepest level, who they are and what they can do every day to make the world theirs, and lead others by example.

Amber is on a mission to transform the world Externally, Internally, and Eternally with the message that you can do anything today to make tomorrow better than yesterday, and every time you SHINE and live out loud you give everyone around you permission to do the same.
