AMAVI (Latin) – “I loved.”
Welcome to Amavi – my new Social Media Management/Virtual Assisting business! When I tell you that this whole business is 100% a God thing, I mean it. Let me tell you the story about how Amavi came to life 🙂
When I finally made the decision to move to Florida, one of the things that I immediately started dreading was finding a new job down there. I LOVE the job I have now, & I didn’t want to find some random job just because I needed to support myself. I want a job that I love, & one that gives me the freedom to travel (aka come home to see my people!!) whenever I want. So on Tuesday, April 13th (these dates are important, bare with me), I headed to Google & started searching for any & all remote jobs that I could do from anywhere. Everything I found didn’t seem like “me,” but they would give me the freedom to travel & work at the same time, so I continued to search. That same night at small group, my prayer request was for God to provide me with a remote job. Fast forward a few days to Saturday, April 17th, I was in the car with my mom & I briefly mentioned to her that I thought it would be cool to do social media management/virtual assisting. It just came to me randomly, & I don’t think either of us thought too much about it after that. The next day (Sunday, April 18th), one of my friends who’s a wedding photographer here in WA, reached out & basically said that she was looking for someone to take over her social media, & asked if I’d be interested. The second I read her text, I just about bursted into tears because I KNEW it was the Lord. God saw what I needed (& wanted), & provided something WAY BETTER because that’s Who He is!! I started working with Marissa that same week, we’re over a month into it at this point, & not a single second of it has felt like “work.”
Here we are just two months after my initial thought to look for a remote job, & I’m launching Amavi – my own business that’s completely remote (aka I can travel whenever I want & still be working YAY!), & I absolutely love what I do. And the coolest part is, if I hadn’t stepped out in faith & said “yes” to God in regards to moving to Florida, I don’t think any of this would be happening. I wouldn’t have even thought about looking for a new job, much less starting my own business – I wouldn’t have needed (or wanted) to! But I’m quickly learning that God’s plans are bigger & better than my own. He’s teaching me to embrace uncomfortability. I’m still scared to death to move across the country on my own, but God is in the process of taking care of one of the things that stressed me out the most, & I’m just so thankful. Even if I end up having to pick up a part-time job when I get down there, I’m not worried about it because I can already see how quickly God is moving in Amavi.
I went to school for Social Media Marketing, & I’m so passionate about helping people grow their brands/businesses via social media. I believe social media should be a place that you can go to be inspired, motivated, & educated. It should be a place of positivity, & I hope to play just a little part in making it that way for someone.
