S2, #9 - How To Grow Your Business with Amanda Kingsmith

amanda.jpg

Today I am speaking with the entrepreneurial-minded, world-traveling, yoga enthusiast - Amanda Kingsmith.

Amanda lives by her own rules, staying constantly curious and deeply passionate about every endeavor she pursues. Amanda is not only an adviser at Praxis, but also a serial explorer who has traveled to over 50 countries spanning across 6 continents in her life thus far, and I presume that number is only growing. She is also the co-host of the "World Wanderer's Podcast" ( a show with over 500,000 downloads) alongside her partner Ryan, where they discuss inspiring stories of travel, adventure, and self-directed living! Additionally, she is a master in the business of yoga, curating a yoga business boot camp to help leverage others into having a thriving yoga business. Simply put, and I think we can all conclude...Amanda is a value-creating machine. And for that reason, It is my honor to welcome her to the show today.

Today we reflect on her journey as we discuss the beauty of entrepreneurship, travel, working remotely, freedom, education, and how to grow your business!
