We had the good fortune of connecting with Amber Ingraham and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Amber, career-wise, where do you want to be in the end?
My end goal is to touch as many lives as possible and change the world by improving the world population’s health overall. As a brand and business coach for wellness coaches, their successes build on that goal. Every client they receive after the work that we did together compounds. Those clients talk to and inspire even more people, and the cycle continues. It would be incredibly hard and virtually impossible to count every life touched, but there is beauty in that. I call it the ripple effect. You can only see the surface effect, but the effect continues on in unseen ways. Those unseen ways are where the magic really happens.
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?
I started out as a website and graphic designer. I felt uninspired, so I worked odd jobs to fill the gaps. Eventually after going through and overcoming my own health issues, I decided to become a health coach. Since I was experienced with the design part, I created my own website and brand on my own. However, as I began to meet other coaches, I found that they really needed help in the branding and design of THEIR businesses. Now, I’ve always been about taking the path that helps the most people. I eventually realized that by helping coaches, I am also helping them to succeed in their personal missions to help others. That effectively meant that I was creating a larger ripple effect in the world. Now, rather than feeling uninspired, I am inspired every day. It definitely wasn’t easy coming to that realization. For some time, I tried to do both health coaching and design, and it left me feeling a bit unfocused. So, I transitioned slowly into becoming a branding business coach and a web and graphic designer. My greatest lesson is that doing ALL the things serves a FEW, but focusing intently on a specific offering serves MANY. I work to help coaches find their authentic personal brand so that they can get seen and heard by the people who would benefit from their knowledge and experience. What I offer is a full package for these coaches, so that they don’t have to hire 3 or more people to get the ball rolling!
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I don’t live in Cali, but I do serve many businesses in So Cal.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
Lisa Taitelman has always been a huge help in spreading awareness about who I am and what I do. She has been integral to my success so far. Her successes are mine, and mine are also hers. We work as a cohesive team to better the world!
