Humans connect with humans, not logos. Consumers now expect to connect and engage with brands online, yet there is a hesitancy for many people to truly open up and humanize their personal brands. Who are the faces behind your logo? From the CEO to the accounting manager, everyone in your company is living the brand they represent. Amy Jo talks through the tangible ways you can humanize your brand, and shares personal stories of working with everyone from high-profile leaders to front line employees.



Any time we innovate, adversity follows. Everyone suffers from Innovation Allergies, the excuses that pop up in meetings such as “That’s not the way we’ve always done it” or “What if it doesn’t work?” Amy Jo shares stories and tips on how to evolve your value to your customer and your culture so it doesn’t become extinct. Whether you are an intrepreneur, an entrepreneur living inside corporate walls, or looking to start your own business, Amy Jo talks through ways to get comfortable with being uncomfortable so you can innovate and thrive.



Work, Family, Self – choose two, you can’t have all three.” That’s what Amy Jo’s female supervisor once told her. That was also the very moment Amy Jo decided to kick open the entrepreneurial door and start her own business. Amy Jo talks about two tangible solutions for increasing the process of women breaking through in business. 1. Get more men involved. As mentors and supporters. 2. Address the unconscious gender bias. This is not just a gender equality issue; it is also about businesses reaching their full potential. Amy Jo shares the data on how having more woman in leadership positions does impact the bottom line and how women can support one another to reach these leadership positions.



At various moments in her career, Amy Jo has diagnosed herself with a purpose problem. She has suffered from a deficit in purpose, which has suffocated her ability to innovate. After learning the hard way that where purpose, passion and skill collide, bliss resides, Amy Jo has made it a priority to help other people navigate finding their own intersection of bliss. This collision point is a moving target for everyone as their passions evolve and purpose shifts. This process can be a slight change to an existing situation or a large shift in direction. Amy Jo shares stories of people, including herself, who have learned to reinvent themselves after many times of falling in and out of bliss.
