We had the good fortune of connecting with Amanda Green and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Amanda, what habits do you feel helped you succeed?
I would say the most important habit for long term success is consistency. Keeping a positive attitude, continual networking and not being afraid to go after your goals are all great habits for success as well.

Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
My business is so important to me. It’s very humbling to see how it has grown over the past couple years. I never thought I would be as successful as I am today when I first started this company. It just goes to show that hard work, determination and a love for what you do really pays off!

Any great local spots you’d like to shoutout?
Oh gosh – this is a tough one. There are so many great spots around Southern California. One of my favorite cities is Palm Springs. I love how artistic the city is. It’s fun to walk the streets and shop. There are endless amazing restaurants and pools to hang out at, perfect when it’s over 100 degrees all summer long.

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
My dad definitely deserves some recognition when it comes to my business and success. He taught me the basic skills when it comes to woodworking and also passed down a bunch of tools to me. Without all of that I’m not sure I would be where I am today.
