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

Hi Amanda, what role has risk played in your life or career?
Fearless fitness was built on taking a risk. I truly believe that everyone should take risks, and do so fearlessly. Just go for it, there is so much in life to gain. Being fearless and taking risks is what helps me navigate through an industry where the word “no” is heard more than the word “yes” but I’ve never been afraid of pushing myself and my business outside of my comfort zone, it’s how we get to the next level.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I am a full time correctional officer who sometimes works 16 hour shifts, multiple times a week. The job could be stressful to say the least. Fearless Fitness drives me and keeps me sane. I have been consistent with working on building my brand, but it definitely hasn’t been easy. In fact, I first launched Fearless Fitness in 2016, but it was a flop. I bought over 700 products and didn’t sale any, not even 1. It was a very discouraging year for me but, I never quit, I stayed consistent and kept pushing forward and here I am 5 years later still standing and selling out almost every drop. I’ve learned to stay consistent, put God first and never underestimate what I am callable of.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
Honestly I’m a person who loves outdoor scenery so i would mostly likely take my best friend on a week long camping trip and end the week with a spa day.

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 son, Dominic, he has changed the meaning of my business and has given me the courage I never knew I needed to take Fearless Fitness to the next level.
