BABL 011: Amanda Brown on Being a Leading Lady

BABL011-AmandaBrown-2Amanda Brown on Being A Leading Lady

Amanda Brown is a force to be reckoned with. She has a smile that warms a room, an interest in others that is palpable, and the desire to help women realize their calling to be the Leading Lady in the movie of their lives.

Amanda teaches The Lipstick Principles through her business The Leading Ladies Company based in the U.K., impacting women everywhere.

The Leading Ladies Company is a relatively new business venture for Amanda, someone who’d been doing coaching and consulting in the corporate world, but was seeing lifeless looks from some of the women in the audience. The Lipstick Principles were developed to help women step into their starring roles and Make Life Happen.

The Lipstick Principles are success steps and strategies we can all apply to our daily life:

K eeping It Simple

Around 11:00, Amanda and I spoke about comparing ourselves to others. The fact that when we play the “than me” game (better than me, smarter than me, etc.) there is really no good to come from this.

Amanda says everyone has the same bank account – it’s filled with 24 hours, and what you do in that time to fill it with happiness, laughter, love, etc. is the best comparison there is.

Leading Ladies TV is Amanda’s interview program (somewhat similar to BABL, but only found on YouTube and mostly women interviews!). She routinely features everyday people with unbelievably inspiring stories.

Amanda’s advice to someone who wants to be more of a leading lady in their life is:

  • Feel great about yourself — mindfulness, meditation, affirmations
  • Every day is a day of choices – the green button is yes, the red button is no. The minute you realize that everything is a decision, that’s when you can start taking control of your life.
  • Think about three things that you’d like to create memories for at this time next year.
