    Amanda's Bio:
    I grew up in the Twin Cities, but now live up in Ely, MN near the BWCA, where my family has been for the last 7 years. I have three brothers, who I adore, and I enjoy fishing, playing basketball, and rough housing with them whenever I can. My mom has been a daycare provider since I was born, which served as inspiration for me to pursue a degree in Elementary education. I also love to paint, draw, and DANCE! I have been dancing for twenty years and am a dance instructor in Superior, WI....I can't imagine a life without it!

Motivation…For Work!

It’s funny how as we switch from the school year to summer, we no longer need motivation to concentrate on our classes, grades, and final exams.  Now, we are forced to find ways to motivate ourselves to go to work day after day to raise money for funding our education!  Almost a complete 180 degree flip.  It can be challenging to pull doubles and overtime to afford school, and sometimes we would rather just say forget it.  However, it will pay off!

“If you wish to achieve worthwhile things in your personal and career life, you must become a worthwhile person in your own self-development.”-Brian Tracy

“Nothing worthwhile comes easily. Work, continuous work and hard work, is the only way to accomplish results that last.”-Hamilton Holt

“Plenty of men can do good work for a spurt and with immediate promotion in mind, but for promotion you want a man in whom good work has become a habit. “-Henry Doherty

“Learn how to be happy with what you have while you pursue all that you want.”-Jim Rohn
