Amanda PatchingOwner- A Dash of Beauty
Amanda's Story :
I was born and raised in Peterborough. I did try to move away once to Bolton with my now husband but was unsuccessful and only lasted a month.
We defiantly didn’t do things the traditional way…. we had our son, bought the house, got married then had our daughter. Once we had our daughter I realized I wanted nothing more then to stay home with my babies. I started up a daycare out of our home for 7 years. Once my kiddos were older I started to think about my next adventure.
I have now had A Dash Of Beauty for almost 3 years.
About 2 and a half years ago I started jiu jitsu with my family at Eris Martial Arts and fell in love with the sport. I even got big and brave and did my first competition here in Peterborough despite all of my fears. I have never done well with speaking in front of more then a few people and have found myself conquering that fear as I have freshly started to help out with teaching the women’s jiu jitsu class.
I feel like we all just need a nudge in the right direction to overcome our fears. With the right people in your corner you can do anything you put your mind to!
