Golden Nugget: “Be true to your brand, your work, and those you represent. Only take work and clients that you can give your all to creatively. Strive to find projects that inspire and challenge you. Build and maintain genuine relationships. Be kind, thoughtful, genuine, and humble. It will come back to you tenfold.”
From Matt: “We were having coffee at Pappalecco in Little Italy San Diego. I had just been laid off and was in a rut. Amie inspired me to freelance to build a portfolio and my professional brand. It is now a year later and I’m leaps and bounds ahead of where I was then both professionally, mentally, and strategically.”
Expanding on this: If I could sum up all these nuggets, it would be ‘stay true to your authentic self.” Part of that is being self-aware. Knowing your strengths and your value. Being strong in your values and sticking with them. Be authentic in relationships. People matter. Between you and every opportunity there is a person.

The Golden Nugget Series
I asked close friends and clients to send me a golden nugget of business wisdom they have gotten from me that has stuck with them. Why? In the moment with clients, I often forget what comes out of my mouth. I’m completely in the moment, in the flow. I’m focused on what’s happening. Plus, I wanted to see the golden nuggets that resonated with them and then share them with more people.
