Women in Business
in a Changing World
Chapter Title: Pivot, not Panic
“You have everything you need to build something far bigger than yourself. The people around you realize this, and they are ready to follow if you're ready to lead.”
— Seth Godin
Amy Andersen is a writer, sought-after speaker, and leadership facilitator as well as the owner/founder of the Just Peachy Sugaring Salon. What began as an opportunity to design the business that would work for her family catapulted her drive and passion for being able to help others do the same. In addition to still seeing clients two days a week, Amy now focuses on growing both her businesses and has surrounded herself with a team who all believe in collaboration over competition.
During the shutdowns in 2020, Amy expanded her business by creating the Just Peachy Training Academy, which guides women through the process of creating their own sugaring salon. She has also begun working as a business start-up coach, helping women across Canada who are looking to start over in their careers or find a way to work from home while caring for their small children. With her step-by-step plan and proven template for success, she can help anyone pivot their mindset and be successful in business.
Amy lives in Chilliwack, BC with her two teenage boys and her Aussiedoodle, Aurora. In her free time she enjoys propagating house plants, reading mystery novels, and planning road trips.

Our world is constantly in flux, and one of the biggest secrets for success is learning how to welcome change rather than resist it.

The women of today are ready to share their voices in new and inventive ways. I invite you to share your voice the way the authors are sharing theirs in this extraordinary book.”
