Explore Other Episodes

Being a bold, brave female entrepreneur doesn’t mean you never fall down; it means that when you do fall down, you get back up, because if you don’t quit, it will get better. Amber Hurdle is living proof of this. 

From navigating being a teen mom and working multiple jobs to provide for her baby, to having to completely re-envision her business when she lost 18 months of speaking engagements and coaching clients almost overnight as a result of the pandemic, Amber models leading as a bold, brave, female entrepreneur.

She is the CEO of Amber Hurdle Consulting, a multi-award-winning consulting firm that pioneers using both science and marketing principles to strengthen customers’ brands from the inside out.  She helps female entrepreneurs overcome costly business problems like ineffective recruiting, turnover, underperformance, declining morale and leadership gaps by clearly connecting her clients’ people strategy to their business strategy, reminding her clients to lead with their heart first and that a little bit of grit goes a long way. 

In this episode, we dive into:

  • What it means to be a bold, brave, female entrepreneur
  • The 4-steps of leading like a bombshell
  • What it looks like to start from zero each day
  • A better way to look at “failure”
