ABOUT AMY

I'm also a travel-loving creative, who lives to inspire amazing beings to dream bigger, follow their heart [instead of those darn dangling carrots] + know that ANYTHING is possible!

Whether I'm creating a website, writing an inspirational blog post or taking photos of a faraway land, my intention is always to create things to inspire those around me... encourage them to take some leaps, make some moves, CHANGE, E X P A N D + defy logic!!


I do love REAL carrots, I'm just really not fond of the dangling carrots provided by employers, educational systems and society in general, just to name a few. 

I found myself chasing one carrot after another in my old career in particular… job after job. A better salary, a better title, a sense of security and so on. Year after year it would always be there… that darn carrot. Evolving ever so slowly into the next carrot and the next.

Ironically, there was a drastic turn of events and the old company I worked for was purchased by a much larger one. During the transition something crazy happened…

So, that was it for me. No more metaphorical carrots.

If I am going to chase after something in this amazing life I have been given why would it be anything other than MY dreams? My passions? A life of purpose + adventure? A life of freedom?

YOU HATE

carrots?

They actually gave me the carrot! The whole thing! Everything I had been working so hard for. And it turns out that it was nothing like I had hoped.

...that my articles + resources will inspire others to take a leap out of the unfulfilling repeat cycle that life can so easily turn into when you are not following your heart.

Week after week turns into month after month, and before you know it five more years have gone by because you were too busy… working for just a paycheck. Did you ever see that movie “Crazy, Stupid Love?” This babysitter is angry with the mother of the kids and as the mother tries to give her cash as a payment the sitter shouts:

Anything is possible! Plant the (non-carrot) seed and see what grows!

"I don't want your slutty money!"

MY HOPE

is...

Thanks to my brilliant friend that is what we now call it. Working only for a paycheck equals slutty money. So just say no to being a money slutface and pursue your passions instead!

Think about it…what would your dream life be? If you won the lottery today and bought all of the stuff you wanted…what would you do after that? For the rest of your life?

After all, what is the absolute worst thing that can happen if you followed your dreams? It doesn’t work out and you are back at square one? Wouldn’t square one be better just knowing that you had tried?

A metaphor for an unattainable goal that if actually achieved will not be as rewarding as originally perceived, AND shall instantly be replaced with new dangling carrot.


AHC's Dictionary (aka Amy vocab):

dangling carrot:


Money that is earned by working ONLY for a paycheck. Doing something ONLY for the financial outcome results in slutty money.


slutty money:


Passion-less, non- rewarding, stressful, counting-the-seconds-until-the-day-is-over work that does not in any way contribute to your goals or dreams.


slutty money
work:


Your mission statement. Your BIG picture. A summary of all that you stand for and believe. Amy often refers to this as 'your why.'


manifesto:


woo woo:


The wacky, weird and wonderful supernatural 'new age' stuff that tends to be unexplainable but undeniable...aka what Amy often refers to as 'magical.'
