//FEARLESS FEMALE FRIDAY// Meet Amanda Adamcheck, the person behind the local, Detroit inspired brand, @kilohandco
🖤 Besides being an inspiring fellow boss babe, Amanda is the perfect person to feature for today’s Fearless Female Friday! She LOVES facing her fears and diving head first into the unknown. In fact, it’s not uncommon to hear her repeating one of her favorite quotes when making a big decision “Courage - feel the fear and do it anyway.”
After 10 years of climbing the corporate ladder in marketing and analytics left her stressed and unfulfilled, Amanda decided to make a change. She had been creating custom wedding gifts for friends and decided to open up her very own Etsy shop 💌 What started as a wedding gift side biz quickly turned into a booming small batch apparel business
Earlier this year, after just one year of hard work, Amanda left her corporate job behind and became a full time entrepreneur. Today her biz runs on one part local love 💕 one part inspiration 💫 and a dash of coffee ☕ with one badass lady behind it all 👯♀️ She also took on a new project this year, her #InspireLocal
project, an 8-episode podcast series 🎙 dedicated to featuring Detroit-based women entrepreneurs and influencers. And if that wasn’t enough, she launched her first 4-week course for small business owners called Project Jumpstart along with MUCH more small biz help!
Amanda is always trying something new, because “You never know what you’ll find that you love doing!” She is also confident in her products and what she offers to her customers, so it may seem as if she has nothing to fear. However, what scares her the most is a common fear for a lot of entrepreneurs 💸 Money 💸 There is no guaranteed paycheck when you’re working for yourself. The desire for a comfortable life is what keeps Amanda going! So, next time you’re in the market for some cute Detroit gear, check her out! She can be found online and at the Detroit Foundation Hotel! Link to shop in bio!
