Hi, I’m Amanda Sears

So you found me?

Would you like to work together?

Or can I inspire you without even needing to connect further...


A STORY OF DIVINE INSPIRATION AND FOLLOWING YOUR HEART! Meet Amanda Sears - the creator behind The Inspired Guide AND The ORIGINAL Inspired Guide herself... Living a love-led life, doing more of what she loves and following her heart's passion in creating all that she feels inspired to... including this multi-faceted platform. WHEN PASSION AND CREATION ALIGN... At age 34 Amanda has had a life full of creation and experiences, from automotive engineering and veterinary nursing, to marketing manager and magazine publisher. She has lived almost everywhere in New Zealand and loves travelling (especially to Queensland, Australia). She has had her fair share of health 'experiences' and hasn't shied away from the 'ups and downs' of life; overcoming setbacks like a star and defying society's norms and people's limiting ideas by being her unique and curious self. Currently residing in Nelson, New Zealand with her husband John, and cat, Daisy; she enjoys living in the flow of

OUR ORIGIN STORY

life and each day is a combination of gardening, eating, creating, providing guidance, blobbing out and doing whatever else arises... She gets what she calls 'divine inspirations' all the time - sometimes they lead to the fulfillment of a project, sometimes they get written down to come back to at a later date and sometimes they get brought to life by someone else... The Inspired Guide was one of these divine inspirations and a combination of the evolution of two of her other projects: The Wellness Guide and Creative Nelson eMagazine. THE INSPIRED GUIDE V1.0 The Inspired Guide idea was conceived of in March 2019 and the first edition of the free eMagazine was birthed on July 1st 2019 (it doesn't take her long to bring such inspired ideas to life). It was well received and came together in ease and flow - a clear sign that it was destined to be. She continued to connect with contributors all over the world and easily pull together content for the magazine as it evolved into a SUPER maga-


zine, read by more than 13,000 people all over the world! It was content rich with over 100 pages in each edition and 18 editions in total; 600+ articles, as well as art exhibitions, instagrammers, podcasts, videos and recipes... it truly grew into a timeless resource full of information and inspiration across all walks of life: conscious living, holistic wellbeing, parenting, nutrition, spirituality, gardening, sustainability, travel, business, creativity, movement, health, healing modalities, stories, personal profiles and so much more... THE ONLY CONSTANT IN LIFE IS CHANGE... As Amanda evolved, so did The Inspired Guide and it was put on hold after issue #18 for redevelopment... THE INSPIRED GUIDE V2.0 Now in 2021 it is re-launching with a few changes... Realising that she WAS The Inspired Guide all along, Amanda tuned into her heart to bring her skills, wisdom and inspirations together into this new version of The Inspired Guide which has evolved into so much more than a magazine. This now evolution focuses on her vision of life in 'Doing More of What Makes You Happy' while 'Living a More Love-Led Life' expressed through two generalised avenues: Lifestyle + Business. LIFESTYLE For the lifestyle component she will share her expansive and broad knowledge and wisdom with those who are attracted to her guidance. BUSINESS In the business component she will utilise her refined design and mar-

keting skills alongside her intuitive awareness to bring people's passion to life as meaningful businesses and energetically re-align pre-existing ones. NEW MINI MAG There is also a new 'Mini Mag' which is designed with this new more focused theme in mind so people can move ahead in all areas of their lives through joy and ease and Do More of What Makes Them Happy.

KIND WORDS NICE THINGS PEOPLE SAY... “If you are looking for a creative uplift for your business. You are totally in the right place. I am so delighted with my new logo and website that Amanda and I created together. Amanda is fantastic to work with and will get all your creative ideas out of your mind into what ever you need.” - Charley (Re:Design) “She is a great listener and responds to what your needs are with easy and practical suggestions and steps to follow. Her relaxed style and intuitive approach made the session a pleasure.... I left a lot of my overwhelm at the door on leaving her lovely office space.” - Felicity (Re:Design) “The magazine is a credit to you and your energies. I love the inspirational focus and curated artworks you include in each issue. I hope your soul draws much wellness creating this as I do reading it.” - Keile (Re:Magazine) “Congratulations Amanda on your ‘inspired’ anniversary! What you are busy doing behind the scenes each month to create such an encyclopedic compendium of good news, advice and positivity is an effort bordering on the herculean! Well done!!” - John (Re:Magazine) “I just wanted to acknowledge + celebrate you and the incredible kindness, generosity, creativity and inspiration you’re sprinkling around the globe like fairy dust. You’re a force for love + good + joy in this world and I want to thank you for who you are and what you do.” - Sarah (Re:Magazine)


LIVING IN FLOW NOT CURRENTLY THE STANDARD WAY OF LIVING FOR MOST... LET’S EXPLAIN The idea of living in ‘flow’ is being present in the now and moving through your day as inspiration, thoughts and passion strikes - get up, sit down, eat, clean, work, play, go out, go shopping, dance, exercise, garden, lay on the floor, etc. The most common question I get from people when I talk about how I live in flow is “how do you get things done that need to be done?” Well this is the fun part of being in the flow... it actually all gets done (and more), and you do it when you feel like it, so it is enjoyable and easy. Oh yes. occasionally there are things in ‘time’ like a meeting or appointment, but even those all work easily in the flow - almost like a ‘time point’ that you just drop into. There is no urgency, effort, force, demands or pressure... if there is, it means that the vibrational match is not in alignment and the timing is not quite right, or the vision is not grounded enough, or there is a block to work through. So everything is technically ‘penciled in’ when working with me; there are no obligations and I hold no judgment or attachment to our relationship. You can’t let me down because I am merely here to facilitate something for you. This means that if you can’t make an appointment or a design doesn’t flow, then that is ok and it will when it is ready - if it ever is... but it is still perfect and I hold no judgment towards you, especially for honouring what YOU need to do to stay in YOUR flow - all I ask for is common courtesy, respect and open communication.


OUR SERVICES DO MORE OF WHAT MAKES YOU HAPPY & LIVE A MORE LOVE-LED LIFE... I certainly know what it is like to feel overwhelmed and unsupported in life and business; especially when the way everyone else is doing it just doesn't feel right... so I am here to be the guide for you that I always wanted. I offer services in lifestyle, business, non-defined areas and of course, inspiration - which is weaved into everything I do. Continue reading this document with ALL the info about working with me OR get in touch to arrange a free 30 minute guided consultation to discover if and where I can be of assistance to you.

*You find me, I don’t find you... I share what I know and you make the choices that create your reality...


SERVICES - LIFESTYLE ARE YOU READY TO LIVE LIFE MORE CONSCIOUSLY WITH MORE PASSION, JOY, EASE, EMPOWERMENT AND INSPIRATION? TO MOVE BEYOND FEAR, LACK AND OVERWHELM INTO LOVE, ABUNDANCE AND WORTHINESS? If you are ready to do the work, then I am here to guide you with inspiration, resources, practical advice, intuition and wisdom gained from personal experience. I am here to meet you at your level with no judgment - but I will pull you up on your limiting beliefs, ideas and behaviours to shift your perspective so you can move into a life with more love. TOPICS INCLUDE: Beliefs, perspectives and relationships, general, budgeting, empowered choices, vision, self-love, passion, technology coaching... I am one of those people who can just get things done and can usually see very clearly the path forward - this means I can help guide you when the path may seem foggy or the road unsure. Whatever you need, I can help find the answers within you, provide my insight around the experience or recommend one of the many wise and wonderful people I know to delve deeper into it with you. You have been guided to me for a reason... let’s find out what that is together. RATES • FREE 30 Minute Initial Consultation • $44p/hr Consultations and Guidance


SERVICES - BUSINESS LIFE IS MEANT TO BE JOYFUL - THIS INCLUDES YOUR J.O.B (JOY OF BUSINESS). SO IF YOU ARE READY TO TURN YOUR PASSION INTO A MEANINGFUL BUSINESS OR ENERGETICALLY RE-ALIGN YOUR EXISTING ONE THEN I CAN HELP YOU! We work together to clear limiting beliefs and fears holding you back; get your vision grounded, then bring it to life using my years of experience and unique way of doing design and marketing. I specifically work in ‘template-based-design’ to reduce expenses, streamline and speed up the process as well as provide consistent quality - in fact you could have your business live or revamped in a matter of days or weeks - with ease! All in flow of course.. TOPICS INCLUDE: Planning, vision, logo & branding, website, social media, training, copywriting, belief systems, technology coach, support, consulting.. RATES • $44p/hr Consultations and Guidance • $222 Pre-made Logo Design (includes all logo files, information + mockups) • $444 New Logo design (includes all logo files, information + mockups) • $88p/hr Design and Marketing Implementation *Mockups are designed as examples only and are additional to the price of the logo. If you choose to proceed with the mocked-up designs for your brand then the design time is greatly reduced because they have already been partially designed; they just need to be setup for output and populated with your info.


WE KEEP IT SIMPLE... BECAUSE IT IS The Design and Marketing component of The Inspired Guide is called Studio S. GETTING CLARITY, GROUNDING THE VISION & BRINGING THE VISION TO LIFE I work with you from the ideas stage, through to getting it out of your head and into the world... I help with the clarity, vision, grounding, planning and specifically the design and marketing components of your new or revamped business - I can refer you to others who may be able to offer further guidance on other areas of your business, like accounting, legalities, product design, etc. TEMPLATE BASED DESIGN I work from template based design and foundational marketing - this keeps it all streamlined, nice and easy; fast and more affordable. I have an ever-expanding collection of pre-made designs or I can create something unique just for you. THE DISCOVERY PROCESS • First we chat to determine where you are at with your vision of business - then what you need, your budget, timeline, intention and expectations • Throughout this process I keep an ear out for any limiting beliefs, outdated ideas or disempowering behaviours and bring them to awareness to address - this is VERY important as most people default into fear, lack and unworthiness and get stuck here which limits your ability to bring your dreams to life • We work closely together, as I am here to facilitate this for you as a co-creation, so your ideas, motivation and energy drive the whole process THE DESIGN PROCESS Once your vision is grounded the fun part begins... Bringing your vision to life!! • It starts with a simple logo design made up of the text of your business name and a symbol that you like and feels reflects your essence - (I no longer create logo designs from scratch and will find a suitable pre-made symbol for you). • Together we pick the colour palette and fonts, then using the pre-made design templates I create a full brand mockup pack for you which acts as inspiration to keep you motivated... all you pay for is the logo design and files initially. When you are ready to expand your brand and platforms you have 3 options: 1. DIY the rest of it yourself your way or use the mockups as inspiration 2. Hire someone else cheaper or closer to you to create the other elements 3. Contract us (Studio S) to create the pre-made designs for you as needed. *I am here with you throughout the whole process to answer any questions, provide support and offer training in how to use these elements or update your website, etc. While yes, I am here to support, inspire and guide you with your business dreams - I will not facilitate perpetuating limited belief systems and disempowering behaviour that distracts you or throws you off your path or out of alignment with your authentic self - if you have been guided to me, it is because I won’t let you away with those kinds of self-sabotaging things...
