    EP 152 Wendy Amara: 1st Gen Guatemalan CEO & Founder of Wendy Amara Strategic Coaching
    3 years ago the mention of a life/business coach would have made WTYM host Ritzy’s eyes roll, hard. This week’s guest Wendy Amara, is Ritzy’s leadership coach. You’ve heard Wendy’s name mentioned on previous episodes over the past 2 years. “Wendy Amara is a highly accomplished transformational Strategy Coach, Speaker, Trainer, and Best Selling Author”. During the pandemic she created Inspired Action, a group coaching container that provides Latinas the structure, accountability, and coaching needed to take action.

    In this episode you’ll hear Wendy discuss:
    - Lessons learned from being 1st Gen Guatemalan 
    - How successful on paper does not equal happiness and fulfillment 
    - Dealing with the guilt from not following the path your immigrant parents envisioned for you
    - Balancing being a mom of 3 kids (that includes a pair of twins) and being a CEO
    - How being fearless does NOT exist
     And so much more

    Questions/Comments from the audience by:
    - Previous WTYM Guest Yvonne Hernadez - Founder of Decide Balance
    - Monica Avila - Founder of Luna and Leche Maternity
