MEET THE MONARCH
HEY THERE, I'm Amanda
Your business strategy & launch expert.
I’m all about helping good people do good things in the world… while also making money.My heart centred, soul driven mission is to triple the number of women entrepreneurs in Canada by 2025. I’ve got an extensive background in launching – from six-figure, complex launches to helping online business owners successfully launch their first course – and I know how important it is to build a strong foundation for your business.
I'm not interested in launching average! With my teaching background, years working in education, and QUALITY as one of my core values, I make sure what you are launching out in this world is something of HIGH value. It’s why I created my Signature Program Monarch Business Academy; a business and launch accelerator for heart centred women and women-identifying entrepreneurs.
For over 20 years, I’ve been helping business owners and entrepreneurs drive their business and get results. I know the significant amount of work that goes into running a successful business, I know how hard you have worked to get here, and I know that most business owners dream of a life outside of the business. My goal is to help you do less and achieve more while creating a positive impact on this world.
JUST FOR FUN
I’m a gemini, Enneagram 8, Generator with Sacral Authority.

Small talk is not my fave but I will sit with you in deep conversation with a glass of wine for hours.
I have both a creative and a strategic mind – gemini!
I have a unique ability to see your highest potential and support you in getting out of your own way to achieve it.
My superpower is helping you find yours!
WHY THE MONARCH?
“Happiness is as a butterfly, which, when pursued, is always just beyond your grasp, but which, if you will sit down quietly, may alight upon you.”
Monarchs represent connection, beauty and transformation. The poem above, along with many other Monarch references, were in my Grandmother’s house and something I always loved. I was close with my Grandma, loved our tea filled afternoons, her Scottish accent, and the way her and my Granda would break into dance together with Louis Armstrong or Frank Sinatra playing in the background.
When I was 21 years old I lost my Grandma to cancer. And one year later, I was diagnosed with thyroid cancer myself. To say I was scared was an understatement. But when I learned the symbol for thyroid cancer was a butterfly, I knew everything was going to be okay.
When I started this business, I was struggling with coming up with a name and when I asked my husband in desperation to ‘help me pick a name’ he said – pointing outside the window – ‘Look….a MONARCH,’ and I immediately knew and felt the significance.
The Monarch represents transformation and how we help entrepreneurs. They are welcomed into the cocoon so they can build and grow, and so they can spread their wings and do what they were meant to do in this world.
As the wise Maya Angelou once said, ‘We delight in the beauty of the butterfly, but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty.’ At The Monarch & Co. we acknowledge and celebrate those changes.
Our goal is to help good people do good things in this world. We help them launch their heart babies so they can make a bigger and better impact on this wonderful world – it’s the butterfly effect and why the Monarch is significant.
