Ep. 39 ~ Amanda Louise Author Interview ~ Be the Black Sheep

Caught up with author, Amanda Louise, who has been working on her inspirational debut book ‘Be the Black Sheep’!! Had a great time reminiscing about our university days in Hervey Bay, and didn’t realise just how much that time shaped our lives!! We have both retained so many of the lessons learned when we were studying mass media & public relations over 13 years ago(!).

Spoke about what lead Amanda to the exploration and promotion of the ‘Black Sheep’ lifestyle, and why she decided to write the book. We then had a chat about a few of her inspirations, including Walt Disney, Tony Robbins, and Tim Ferriss (author of ‘The Four Hour Work Week).

Amanda has done all the research and ground work for her readers, including attending motivational US style motivational conventions run by Tony Robbins, and the Aussie women’s creative conference, 9 to Thrive. We discussed our shared passion for helping people, and being a part of positive communities!!

Amanda has been working on her social media presence, providing videos, live streams, interviews, and posts designed to help people overcome fear, visualise success, and most of all, that it is ok to be different. Make sure to check out ‘Be the Black Sheep’ today!!
