Align Your Values (Amanda Abella)

  • Episode #114

Growing up with mixed messages about being a woman and making sales, Amanda Abella ultimately learned she can embrace both. Doing so led to a successful business coaching other women entrepreneurs — and realizing making it means aligning your values.

Welcome to Making It! This weekly show explores the lives and stories of entrepreneurs as they share their unique perspectives on their success and path to making it. 

Amanda Abella is a Latina millennial personal finance and business expert as well as the founder and CEO of Make Money Your Honey.

“The legacy I’d like to be remembered for is helping women to realize that they are valuable, they are worthy. Women are magic.”
