She had no idea what entrepreneurship was like at first until she met Matt, the entrepreneur husband. Her husband was working in real estate and starting his entrepreneur journey. They jumped in it together and learned how to make money on their own but then the real estate market crashed and they lost everything.

It took a lot of courage and hard work — they went to events and met a lot of entrepreneurs and eagerly learned from the pros. When she felt that certain drag and no one understood her journey…
…and thus The Entrepreneur’s Wife was born.
On today’s episode, Amy shares her pivotal transition from being the entrepreneur’s wife to being an entrepreneur herself. She gives away handy tips on surviving stagnation and being vulnerable. And lastly, she points out the value of being surrounded by people on the same wavelength as you.
“The great thing that happens when you’re around a lot of people that are in the same mindset that you’re in, it allows you to lay down the walls you put up around you to protect you and I got to just be this free and be the person I so desired.” – Amy Stefanik
