We had the good fortune of connecting with Amany ZAma and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Amany, we’d love to hear about how you approach risk and risk-taking
Risk taking is a huge part of life. Almost everything we do is a risk, even something as simple as leaving your house. With a career, risk taking can be very scary because if signifies change; you could take a risk and end up homeless or take one and end up on top of the world. We should be open and accepting to taking risk because that is what life is all about. Risk taking has played a huge role in my life like any other human. Deciding to make bags with an unconventional material was a huge and is still a huge risk, but I am allowing myself to be open and accepting to taking risk, whatever the outcome may be.
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
AmanyZ specializes in unique luxury handbags crafted in the USA. The bags are crafted from reclaimed wood and are stained with vibrant colors to match the season. There are a lot of things that set us apart from others, but one of the biggest thing that sets us apart is that we use an unconventional and sustainable material to create iconic fashion pieces. I put a lot of time and effort into creating these bags because I want it to mean something to those who own it.
It is definitely not an easy journey but it is my journey and I love it. I overcome a lot of challenges by being accepting to everything that comes my way whether disappointing or exciting. Life is unpredictable, so being open minded and accepting of things has helped me overcome a lot of the challenges that come my way.
I have a learned a lot about business and life during this journey. I have learned to be more open to asking for help, taking risks, and being the best version of myself.
I want the World to know AmanyZ is all about strong and amazing people doing what makes them happy, as long as they aren’t hurting others. Being strong and amazing to me is someone that is accepting of others, open to learning, loving and spreading positivity and just being themselves.
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I would like to shoutout my friends and family for always loving and supporting me. They all believe in my hopes and dreams and that is all I could ever ask for.
