Excerpt from the 'Stand Out Life' Podcast by Ali Hill
Expressing who you are is a bold act, finding outlets for your identity to shine requires courage. It’s been a consistent theme and drive for today’s guest.

In 1996, Amanda founded accessories giant Mimco, and built the brand into a fashion powerhouse over twelve years prior to its sale in 2007. We chat about this journey and where Amanda’s drive for hard-work comes from. In 2012, inspired afresh, Amanda launched A-ESQUE.
