@Amanda_at_FFL

Amanda is the founder and voice behind Future Female Leaders, a leading social movement for conservative women. She is known for her uncanny ability to connect, engage, empower, and influence other women. She does so with an appropriate amount of humor and “sass” and makes current events, politics, and the direction of our country relevant to many millennials and women. Through the efforts of her organization, she has worked to get young women engaged in the real issues facing our country, inspiring these women to get registered to vote, support conservative candidates, and let their voices be heard.

Amanda currently resides in the state of Virginia. She is a graduate of East Carolina University College of Business and a true American entrepreneur. Amanda has spoken at national conferences throughout the country, including events put on by the American Conservative Union, College Republican National Committee, Turning Point USA, Network of enlightened Women and Clare Boothe Luce Policy Institute.

What was the biggest factor in your success?

Passion is a powerful thing. For any small business owner, and especially for FFL, passion is a significant part of our growth. Not only are we very passionate about advancing conservatism, but we’re also tapping in and resonating with hundreds of thousands of people who share that same passion. I’m also incredibly lucky to have a team of 100+ ladies, located across the country, who support and spread FFL’s message far and wide each and every day. In addition, the daily readers and supporters of Future Female Leaders have been a huge factor in my own success. We often talk about how FFL has helped them find their voice, but I don’t think many people realize how much the readers and supporters have helped me find and strengthen mine.

What advice would you give to other millennials?

Know that you don’t have it all figured out — and that’s okay. Have confidence in your ideas and thoughts, but also be open to other’s opinions or suggestions. It’s okay to be scared, but it’s not okay to let that fear hold you back. Don’t burn bridges. Don’t compare yourself to others. Stay humble and don’t ever think you’re too good for a certain task or job.

Does the GOP have a future and why?

The GOP has a future as long as we stay true to the principles that unite us — limited government, free markets, and the Constitution. I believe we can build a bigger tent as a party without having to dilute or tailor our message and values, but we must learn how to effectively communicate and articulate our ideas and our principles and show how they are relevant to each individual’s everyday life.
