New book reveals the joys and struggles of 18 Asian women entrepreneurs
who travelled many different paths to create their best lives
When Amy called her mom after a stressful and uninspiring day working in the banking industry, her mom told her, “Most people don’t like their jobs. Suck it up.” She took that advice to heart for the next seven years, changing banks, thinking things would get better. They never did. After a long-term relationship ended, Amy began a journey of personal development, and that ended up helping not only with the loss of her relationship but also her dissatisfaction with her career and her life.
“I loved my transformation, the woman that I was becoming, and I was sharing it with my friends and family and seeing them transform. And I made a decision that I wanted to help as many people as possible to step into their greatness.”
One of the things she realized was that she’d always known she should listen to her heart. But she was fearful, she questioned her self-worth, she doubted her intuition. “It was definitely a process to get where I am today,” she says. “Deep down inside, your soul or your heart knows what you want the most. But because of other people’s opinions, because our fear, because of our inner chatter, sometimes we don’t listen to our intuition. But if we will just follow our intuition, we’ll always end up at the perfect place for us.”
Amy followed her intuition even though it meant she had to step out of her comfort zone, get through “impostor syndrome,” and go against what her parents saw as the right path for her. With her coaching business, The Opulent Academy, she is helping other women discover their potential. “Ladies, if you’re not doing something that you are passionate about, change it,” she says. “Change it! It’s your life.”
