I'm Amanda Parker. I work with highly ambitious, purpose-driven humans, like you.
The only problem is you feel like you aren’t really making a difference in the world, you know you are capable of so much more, and you don’t feel fulfilled in your work.
Through coaching with me, we will clarify your life purpose so that you stop making excuses for feeling tired, frustrated, and unhappy, have clarity on the impact you want to have in the world, and have the courage to take action!
You have the vision and motivation to have a massive impact in the world and just need some support to help you get clear on your purpose and make it happen.
Let's get you from feeling frustrated and wondering if your work is really making a difference in the world, to feeling truly fulfilled knowing your work has an impact.
I spent years working at a job I was passionate about, in a field of work I loved, and yet every day I felt frustrated. I was working within my job description and I felt like I wasn't really using all of my talents or skills to work towards my dreams.
I had so much energy and creativity to give - and no outlet where to put it. On the surface I had finally made it to my dream job, and yet it didn't feel like a dream. I felt trapped.
One day I realized that if I continued working day-after-day in a role that didn't light me up that I would eventually be so far down the rabbit hole I'd never find my way back out. And so I started working with a coach to do the hard work of figuring out who I was, what fulfilled me, and what was the impact I truly wanted to have on the world.
Don't get me wrong, my heart still beats for wildlife and nature, but I uncovered another passion and purpose in my life - helping purpose-driven people find their life purpose and take courageous action to transform their lives! I truly believe that from this place of clarity and fierce courage, anything is possible!
I launched The Courage Factory to help highly motivated, creative, and ambitious people like you clarify their vision, unlock their potential, and activate the courage to make transformational changes in their lives.
Why work with me?
The results speak for themselves. 90% of my clients have uncovered what they truly want to do with their lives and have transformed their careers as a result.
Past clients have left jobs or businesses they were unhappy in, started careers in new fields of work, and pursued passion projects they never knew were lying beneath the surface.
Life is too short to fill your days with work that isn’t meaningful. The Courage Factory is your ally in discovering what impact you’re meant to have in the world and figuring out how to make that work your profession.
I have worked on all sides of the fence - starting my career at a large advertising agency in NYC, moving to Berlin, Germany to work with a global non-profit focused on forest and wildlife protection, then transitioning into leadership development, coaching, and entrepreneurship.
I understand the struggles clients face when trying to live a purpose-filled life while continuously hitting roadblocks. I have felt the struggle of ambition and creativity crushed by unfulfilling work, and know how incredible it feels to live the life you truly desire each day.
I am currently living my dream life - working with clients across the globe that I love and believe in wholeheartedly. The journey to get there was not an easy one, but I am grateful every day that I found my purpose in life - and am living it.
I am a Leadership Coach and Facilitator who empowers people to reach their full potential and level up their social impact. I help highly ambitious humans uncover what really drives them so they can stop making excuses and start taking control of the direction of their life.
I inspire people to recognize what impact they really want to have on the world, to figure out how they've been holding themselves back, and to start feeling really excited about the life they're building.
With more than 12 years of experience in Leadership Development, Coaching, and Project Management, I can take you from feeling frustrated and like your work doesn’t really matter to truly feeling fulfilled and like you’re making a difference in the world.
