My name is Amelie Chance. A little over 15 years ago, I went through a divorce which left me living in fear. I was afraid that my heart would never heal. I was afraid that each day would be more meaningless than the next. I was afraid that I would never love again. After several months, I hit rock bottom. It was then I saw a very simple choice I had to make–a choice between fear and hope. I chose hope.
While the last 15 years have been a challenge, they have also been the best of my life. I was able to rebuild my life and find love again. For all of you out there suffering from heartbreak or facing adversity, I want you to know that life can hold meaning again. A better, brighter path lies ahead. And love, in many forms, awaits you. Choose hope. In this, you will always find love.
I provide advice based on my expertise in Positive Psychology!
Positive Psychology looks at the negative space within traditional psychology. Where traditional psychology focuses on what may be “wrong” with you, positive psychology takes a different approach and evaluates your strengths and talents to help you flourish. I use positive psychology to help people overcome adversity to live a better, brighter life.
I am a Storyteller.
I am an ordinary person that seeks to illustrate the extraordinary strengths we all have by telling true stories from my life. I recently co-authored called Overcomers Inc: True Stories of Hope, Courage, and Inspiration which was fortunate enough to reach a #1 best-selling status on Amazon. I also regularly fill up personal journals. 🙂
I run lemonade stands.
Some people come from families of doctors or engineers. In my family, when you are old enough you set up a lemonade stand or something to establish yourself as a legitimate business owner! I followed in these footsteps as I am an entrepreneur at heart. I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Finance from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and a Masters of Applied Positive Psychology from the University of Pennsylvania. I’ve owned small and mid-size businesses throughout my life. My greatest joys in these ventures have come from helping people find meaning, purpose, and happiness in their lives.
I am you.
I am human. I’ve achieved many goals and I have watched many dreams slip through my hands. I’ve searched for happiness. I have overcome seemingly insurmountable challenges. I acknowledge my countless blessings. Now, I want to share my life lessons with others. I help others find their personal path to flourishing as I have discovered it is less nebulous than we all think.
Love & Light,
