"The days of the struggling artist and wounded healer are over" - Rebecca Campbell
Hi, have we met ?
I'm slightly unusual as far as coaches go. I believe creating a successful business requires a combination of business strategy, psychology, energy and purpose. I bring all of these elements together for my clients.
I work specifically with new and aspiring female business leaders to help them transform their passion and purpose into a profitable business (that impacts millions).
We all want to do what we were put on this earth to do - earn a good living, take care of our families, and make a positive difference for others. The DBA is one of the ways I help people do just that.
So why me? Well, I've been exactly where you are now, feeling like there's something else I'm supposed to be doing with my life. I went from a career-confused mess, to 6-figure business owner less than a year after launching.
I'm proof that an ordinary corporate 'good-girl' can create something out of the box and extraordinary. And guess what, gorgeous? It's totally possible for you too.
You're ready to live in alignment with who you truly are and do the work you were born to do in this world...
Does this sound familiar...
You've subscribed to every 'freebie' out there and you're joining every webinar going, but you're still none the wiser (I was totally 'there' by the way... thinking I could piece together my purpose and my business on freebies, like some kind of 2nd grade science project)!
You're craving the support of someone who's been there and you're super clear that you don't want to continue this journey alone
Not to mention you're feeling slightly 'lonely' right now... You love the idea of surrounding yourself with incredible women who are on a similar path - women who get it. Finally.
I'm willing to bet you also have some big fears going on right now too...
- You're still lacking clarity on your message and what you're here to do in this world. You're asking yourself questions like 'what's my purpose?' or 'who would want to work with me?' or 'am I really qualified enough to strike out on my own'?
- The idea of 'really' putting yourself out there scares the bejesus out of you! You want to make an impact, but being judged is just too awful to think about...
- You're probably juggling a 'real' job, a family and some kind of social life. Where does a business fit in with all that?
- You think success is meant for everyone else
- You feel totally overwhelmed with 'all the things' you have to do to launch your business properly #wheredoistart?
- If you already have a business, you've thought about giving up... a lot. But you really don't want to do that...
I so get it
I was sitting behind my laptop not that long ago, head in hands and probably sobbing a little... (I see you)! I knew I was here for a purpose, a reason, but I just couldn't put my finger on it. Every day I'd commute into my corporate job, look around me and feel so alone.
I just didn't know where to begin or who to turn to for help.
I felt a huge amount of resistance towards hiring a mentor for guidance because I was a smart cookie and well, kinda stubborn...
I'd excelled at everything I'd put my mind to previously, so surely figuring out this whole start-up thing would be a breeze. Right?
Boy was I wrong and I continued to struggle.
On my 30-min lunch breaks, I'd sit and read books by my favourite authors like Gabby Bernstein and Rebecca Campbell (who I've since met, thanks Universe)! I wondered why I too couldn't make a living by inspiring others and putting my god-given gifts to good use. I felt as though 'that kind' of work was meant for someone else.
I had no idea how to live on-purpose or truly make a difference in the world and truly, I was afraid to be seen. I started to wonder if this 'finding your purpose' stuff was just a pipe-dream...
Every day I'd ask myself - 'can you really create a successful, profitable business doing what you love?'
If so, where to start?
Following your heart and creating a business that's not only purposeful, but profitable, is totally do-able. It also doesn't have to take a million years to get there either.
With the guidance of a proven mentor and the support of a like-minded community, you can literally shave years off your timeline to success.
Starting a business should be fun and allow you to feel connected and in flow. It's about sharing your gifts and passion to make a difference in people's lives and the world.
For me, it was about making a simple choice.
I decided to get fierce...
I got support and invested in a group program, just like this one
- I grew tired of playing a guessing-game with my life and business
- I decided my future was worth more than the 'freebies' I'd been piecing together along the way...
- I quickly recognised that my message is needed in the world. With the help of my coach + spiritual teachers, I became clear on how to use my gifts, skills and passions to make a difference
- I very quickly began experiencing success in my business as the path became clearer
- I started putting the systems and structures in place that allowed me grow my email list by 1000's
- I started attracting my dream clients who actively sought me out
- I quit my full-time, 9-5 job
- I started living life on my terms and travelled all over the world
- I celebrated 6-figures in just under a year of business
- I created a life and business that was in line with my purpose, core truth and desires
All of this? It's totally possible for you too.
I find it so frustrating to see talented, soulful women stumbling around and playing the business guessing game, or worse... feeling as though a life of freedom and inspiration is not meant for them because they have no idea how to make their dream life a reality.
They spin their wheels and this often leads to them giving up after a few months... All of this could've been avoided if they just got the right help. This is why I do what I do.
My calling is to help women exactly like you develop a business that not only lights up your soul, but is successful and profitable.
This is my truth, my why. My purpose.
I refuse to watch another woman dim her light when she has a powerful message to share with the world. So let's talk about how working with me in the Academy can help you...
How does it work?
You can enrol in the program immediately and gain access to the Orientation Program right away.
The remaining 12 training modules are released weekly (with one implementation week per month). The modules consist of introductory training videos, workbooks, done-for-you templates, swipe files, resource lists. All of the training is online, mobile-optimised and contained in the private Dream Builder Academy members only site.
In addition to the Live program, we have recently introduced a new self-study option for those who prefer to work at their own pace.
You have the option of choosing the Self-Study program or joining us for the Live program where you also receive 8 group Q&A calls with Amanda. The Live program allows you the opportunity to ask Amanda questions and receive tailored, strategic advice for your business.
You're also in the Academy for life! You get lifetime access to the program which means you can revisit the materials as often as you'd like for as long as the program is in existence!
Here's what's included in the Live program.
If you choose the Self-Study option, you get everything listed below with the exception of the Live Q&A Calls.
Here's how the Dream Builder Academy helped the incredible Michelle Curry from storiesinthegarden.com. Michelle was looking to move her business from hobby-status to 'the real thing' while still working in her 9-5 job.
"The Dream Builder Academy was the best course for business I've ever taken (and I've taken many courses)! I had a lot of fear and doubts about going into business for myself, but this program gave me everything I need to be successful. Amanda is an incredible transformational coach and mentor!"
Here's how the Dream Builder Academy helped the gorgeous Laura Jane McKeown from laurajanemckeown.com. Laura was struggling financially and needed help to gain momentum in her business.
"The Dream Builder Academy changed my life. Not just my business. I'd been dreaming about creating my business for years but struggled to gain momentum. Now I have everything set up in my business that I need. I've also built an incredible community and I'm attracting my own clients!"

Your questions answered...
Q: WHEN DOES THE PROGRAM START?
You can get started immediately! You will be sent the Orientation Program + Module 1 as soon as you sign up, plus you'll be registered for the upcoming calls (if you choose the Live Program option). You'll also gain access to our private Facebook community of incredible, engaged change-makers!
Q: What if I don't have any idea what kind of business I'd like to create, should I already know that first?
A: This is for you if you are ANY of the following:
- Clueless as to what you have to offer the world, but know you'd like to do something more meaningful to you than you are now, and know that it involves helping other people in some way where you can work online, from anywhere, at any time - you're possibly drawn to coaching, healing or mentoring in particular!
- Have an idea of what your passions are and maybe even what you'd like to do with them as a business, but don't know what your next steps are in systematically growing yourself, your personal brand/online business, and your income
- Have already started your own personal brand/online business, but could really use further personal and soul growth to get over any blocks, fears and resistance that's coming up as you progress further and further into your purpose, as well as learning and implementing the systems and strategies to expand your business, income, and impact in the world
Q: I just don't have the money right now, what's your ADVICE?
A: We definitely have that in common!
Money is always an important topic and I get it. I grew up fairly poor and even to this day, I run a lean business. I lovingly watch every penny because I care about where my money (and subsequently my energy) goes. I've built this business from the ground up without handouts or a rich family supporting me.
I started my company in the red. I was tens of thousands of dollars in debt - including student loans and credit cards. Know that I do not take your financial investment in the DBA lightly. I honour the commitment and responsibility.
That’s why I’ve taken a strong stand to offer lifetime access to the DBA, which means that you can retake the program for as long as it’s in existence, for free.
I've also kept the investment for the program fairly low, despite people telling me it’s worth a lot more or that I’m missing out because I give everyone lifetime access.
While I'm a business person, kindness and generosity are what drive all of my decisions.
Remember I'm also offering a lower-cost self study option plus the option to take advantage of the super-extended payment plan over 8 months! Since I’ve never done this before, I don’t know if I’ll ever offer this type of payment plan again. So if that’s a factor for you, now is the time!
I'm also backing up this program with 10 day money back promise. You do the work and if you don’t think it’s worth it, you get your money back. Simple as that.
Q: Between my job, my family, my house, errands etc - I'm just not sure I'll have the time to put the work in. What is the time commitment?
A: The honest truth? The Dream Builder Academy wont work unless you do. I'd recommend putting aside 3-4hrs per week to go through the materials and do the work to get your business launched. Some weeks you may need a bit longer (you'll find that once you're inspired, you could keep on working - because you LOVE your business so much)! Some weeks, you wont need as long - the choice is yours and you get to choose the pace.
Obviously you need to trust your timing and don't want you spending money on this if you're just not feeling motivated enough to do the work right now (and that's totally okay)! I'm not in the business of taking your money and dragging you across the finish line. I'm in the business of helping you change your life. But I can't be the only one who truly wants this for you.
What I can tell you though, is I work with clients all over the world who have day jobs, small children, are in the middle of moving house or relocating countries and they still make time to work on their business. Why? Because it's important to them. And guess what? They still find time to workout and have date nights with their hubby.
This course is about creating more freedom, not taking it away. You're welcome to work at your own pace and also remember there is a self study option available too.
Q. What's the difference between the Self-Study option and the Live program? Which option is right for me?
Here's what you need to know - The two programs are identical in terms of content and you will have lifetime access to the materials. You will also get access to the online community in both options. However, the Live program gives you access to 8 x Live group Q&A calls with Amanda where your personal questions get answered. The Q&A calls are so valuable and are always small and intimate. The Live program is excellent for those who want the extra level of accountability and the opportunity to brainstorm their business with Amanda and ask for detailed feedback.
Q: Can I pay in instalments?
A. Of course! I wanted to make this program as accessible for you as possible. Whatever it takes for you to do this for you and your family. If your soul is nudging you to do it - it's for a reason, trust it.
I will be teaching you a lot more about how to tune in and trust your intuition in your life and business - it has made all the difference in growing mine.
Q: I want to do this program but honestly I'm just so afraid! What if I don't get anywhere, what if I fail, what if I disappoint myself and others?
A: What if you never find out what you are truly capable of in this life? I believe you already have everything you need to succeed. I promise I will provide you with the resources and knowledge necessary to help you succeed even more than you can imagine. All you need to do is show up and do the work.
A note from Amanda
I understand what you're feeling right now. You're excited and have 'the butterflies' but you also have the monkey mind that's telling you you're cray and there's no way you'll be able to make this work!
I understand you're probably a little bit afraid (and fear tends to disguise itself as our adult, rational voice)! But I'll let you in on a secret - I believe our greatest life is on the other side of our fears. In fact, I believe fear is a good thing. It's an indicator of what we desire most.
Let me just say, if there is even just a teeny part of you that's screaming, "this is it. I know that this program is for me!" I highly suggest you take a leap of faith and follow your intuition. You don't want to look back a few months from now and wish you'd made a different decision.
Wherever you are right now is a result of your past thinking. If you're not 100% fulfilled, wouldn't you agree you need to try something different?
Ask yourself right now, "What's possible for me if I invest in myself and finally get the support and step-by-step guidance I desire?"
And on the flip-side, ask yourself, "Where will I be a few months from now if I don't take any action? Am I okay with nothing changing and having things in my life and biz stay the same?"
I'm a huge believer in doing what lights you up and following your dreams.
Because honestly, if you don't go after them, they're just that—dreams. However, if you take inspired action and commit to yourself and your business, you're able to transform your dreams into your reality.
We're not meant to do this alone and that's why I'm here to support you every step of the way (along with your Academy sisters)! It's my mission to help you overcome those fears and create a life and business beyond your wildest dreams. If my clients and I have been able to do it, believe me you can too - you've just gotta believe it!
If you're ready to do the work and make some magic happen, then let's do it. Now's your time and it's yours for the taking!
All my love,
