Bio:

My name is Amy Jo Hamilton and live in Columbus, OH with my 20-month-old son Henry and Husband, Andy.

My career background is in corporate retail, I worked as a buyer for 13 years, at companies like L Brands, Acena and DSW.

When I was at the top of my game and pregnant with our son ( after a long fertility struggle) I was caught up in a huge round of layoffs and lost my job. I was devastated and took it was a huge hit to my ego!

Then my “side hobby” Beautycounter came into play, being 25 weeks pregnant and after going on multiple interviews, that just didn’t feel right, I decided to dive head first into my Beautycounter business. Beautycounter is a direct retail brand that sells safe beauty, personal care, sunscreen and kid products thru three channels of distribution: eCommerce, consultants, and pop-up shops/collaborations. I was drawn to their mission of getting safer products in the hands of everyone and loved the freedom and flexibility Beautycounter offered me.

I am now a Director for Beautycounter and lead a team of over 35+ girls and growing daily. With this flexible schedule

I was able to also get back into my other true passion  – yoga & group fitness. I am currently completing my 200-hour yoga teacher training.

So, when people ask what I do all day I say I help change people’s lives from the inside out and I will be the best mama and wife I can be!

My #1 piece of advice is to follow your gut, never settle and go for the NO! There is no such thing as failure, just feedback. You are the only person that will take care of you and ensure you are not only serving your clients, but you are getting served by them as well.

In my free time, I love working out (running, barre, yoga), reading (now listening to books on audio- let’s be real who has time to read?), traveling, spending time with my family and pampering myself! Self-care is super important, especially for women and mamas! It is okay to take some time for yourself!
