    Amy Porterfield: The Beauty of Being Unattached in Business

    I truly believe that as much as we hustle and grind toward the goals that we have in mind, we can only do what we can do.  Sometimes we may succeed, and sometimes we may fail, but the lesson or the blessing we receive is typically dependent on how attached we are to the outcome.

Before building a multi-million dollar digital course business, Amy worked with mega brands like Harley-Davidson and Peak Performance Coach, Tony Robbins, where she oversaw the content team and collaborated on ground-breaking online marketing campaigns. 

     

    Through her bestselling courses and popular podcast, Amy’s action-by-action approach proves that even the newest online entrepreneurs can bypass the overwhelm, and instead generate exciting momentum as they build a business they love.
