We had the good fortune of connecting with Amber Young and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Amber, how has your perspective on work-life balance evolved over time?
As a mom, co-ceo and career woman; understanding work – life balance has been the key to my success . Being a great mom, supportive family member and friend has always been my priority, nothing superseds that. I’ve also told myself that success is nothing without people to share it with. Happiness to me is about creating balance while incorporating all the things I love and giving each of those things everything I have. Over the last few years my experiences have helped me evaluate the quality of my life , cherish everything I have, right my wrongs and grow into being a better person .
Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
Being an African American Healthcare Professional and Business Woman, I have to work twice as hard to prove myself; and three times as hard to be taken seriously or given a chance to showcase my talents . Nevertheless, I don’t get discouraged and I put my best effort forward in everything I do. Starting a new business is never easy. The ultimate challenge for us currently is getting people to believe in our brand as much as we do. As a new company, with a smaller clientele, clients tend to shy away from us, because they favor more established brands. I want the world to know that I am just as good as anyone , and that client Satisfaction is top priority.
