Episode 046 – Amanda J. McIntosh

Welcome to another episode of The HERO Show. I am your host Richard Matthews, (@AKATheAlchemist) and you are listening to episode #46 with Amanda J. McIntosh – Starting Your Business by Being Unique, Weird, & Creative!

Amanda became interested in beauty after searching for soft washcloths for her own skincare routine. When she could only find slabs made of thick terry cloth, microfiber, or bamboo, she wondered why no one had bothered to reinvent the clumsy staple.

Until then, Amanda led a double life as a classical musician and business consultant. After grad school, she spent years performing with orchestras around the US and Europe. She later worked for her mother’s CRM consulting firm on projects with Fortune 100 companies, but she never quit performing. Eventually, she had her lightbulb moment late one night while driving home from a concert.

Here’s just a taste of what we talked about today:

  • How ‘not fitting in’ is a good position to be.
  • Thinking outside the box. Searching for the least expected solutions to problems.
  • Getting creative and never taking ‘no’ for an answer.
  • Quit following the rules and grow!
  • Develop enough independence as not to become a slave to trends.
  • Find the balance between being a part of everything and being separate.
  • Being ahead of the curve is a common trait among successful CEOs.
  • Being detail-oriented is key to being able to notice trends.
  • It’s challenging to choose which advice to take from which people.
  • Amanda’s biggest enemy is needless waste and pollution.
  • Fighting against a beauty industry that does more harm to the skin.
  • Choose companies that doing the right and good thing.
  • Channeling our energy to something productive instead of raving about it.
  • Entrepreneurs make the world go round and solve its problems.
  • Setting your priorities straight.
  • You don’t always know how you will get to where you want to go.
  • Directing the praise to how much effort was put into the task.
  • The umbrella of unconscious trust signals.
  • It’s much easier and more fun to be real than to seem real.
