The Wrap Up
In this interview with Amy from Ba Bam Wreaths, she offers a lot of motivation and inspiration, but she doesn’t pull any punches about what it’s like to work for yourself. Following your dreams and starting your own business is hugely rewarding. However, as Amy points out, it’s a lot more work than just doing the 9-5. She achieved her dream of being a work from home mom though, and for her, it’s all worth it.

Amy is passionate about the message she feels called to share. We talk a lot on this podcast about focusing on your “why”. That reason that you wanted to be a maker in the first place. Amy’s “why” is her message of hope and purpose. For her that is far more important than the products she is selling. The big takeaway is to always let your passion be your drive!
