I absolutely adore and respect returning, Living Fearlessly with Lisa McDonald international radio/podcast guest, AMY OPPEDISANO!
This ever-inspiring innovator and creative spirit is churning out new initiatives, projects, and endeavours faster than my platforms can keep up with, which is why it was an absolute MUST for me to re-showcase and to re-interview Amy on the Living Fearlessly with Lisa McDonald international radio/podcast show! I truly derive much inspiration from Amy as a fellow entrepreneur, and as a savvy business woman. I follow Amy and her career quite closely, which for my own off-the-hook schedule is something I have little time to unfortunately do with the majority, thus providing further testament to Amy’s profound presence for how she genuinely stands out.
There are many aspects of who Amy is as a stellar human being; for the countless ways in which she organically stands apart in the never ending sea of innumerable ‘voices’; all of whom are spectacular in their own right. Similar to what beckons my attention to Amy…no differently than Amy’s plethora of fans and followers, and the reasons for why we collectively find ourselves magnetically drawn to her, is her limitless and boundless kindhearted spirit! When this woman witnesses a glaring need or is attuned to a worthy cause that speaks to her own soul – she – and without hesitation or reservation – pounces into immediate action. This is what genuine leaders in fact do. They don’t need to be asked twice and in Amy’s particular case – she does not require being asked at all. Amy is one of those rare gems, who instantaneously rolls up her sleeves, and who sprints to the front of the line so as to support, and to assist. She does so without thought or expectation of outward accolades, pats on the back, or public recognition. A true champion of people during their vulnerable time of extreme darkness is how I would first and foremost characterize, Amy!
My admiration and respect for Amy is further deepened by her constant capacity to juggle. She is a proud parent, and life-partner to her husband Derek, who consistently remain at the forefront of everything she endeavours to do, and with the family’s best interest as the primary focus of her attention and energies. Choosing to be actively engaged (always on) as a fully invested member of the family is a full time job in and of itself, let alone doing so, while also being heavily immersed in the entrepreneurial world. Living within these dual realities, while rising to the ongoing challenges of competing needs; within a no clocking in or clocking out realm of existence, is what further enhances my utmost respect for this trailblazer of a woman! Amy effectively balances the simultaneous highs, lows, ups and downs within her integrated worlds…IMPRESSIVELY WELL!
I am immensely thrilled for Amy who is now a contributing author to Amazon’s #1 International Bestselling Book (in many countries and distinctive categories) Cracking The Rich Code! The legendary, Jim Britt and the original Shark, Kevin Harrington from Shark Tank, are the geniuses of this brainchild book series, which has been publicly endorsed by the one and only… ANTHONY ROBBINS! It doesn’t get much bigger than that! Amy courageously shared with myself, the global listeners and the podcast subscribers, what in fact, her chapter specifically delved into, which might come as a genuine surprise even to those who know Amy. For a more in-depth and comprehensive overview of what Amy so generously shared with us all…please click on the enclosed podcast link of our deep and meaningful interview with one another. Amy also provided myself and the global listening audience with a bit of a teaser for what else is excitedly upcoming in her world! There is no limit to this woman’s ferocious relationship to adventure and creation!
Amy, once again our friend, I wish to thank you from the centre of my heart for the immeasurable and tireless ways you continue to show up in this world! Your commitment to shifting the collective consciousness for the betterment of all is truly commendable. Thank you kindly for your meaningful contributions to humanity and for your servant leadership. I appreciate you, Amy!

You are appreciated!
