& What The Podcast Hosts Had To Say

A Well-Designed Business 2

A Well - Designed Business with Luann Nigara

our conversation >>

Amber De La Garza is quite literally one of my all-time favorite guests. Without exception, each time she’s been on the show she has taught me something that I’ve taken to the three businesses that I manage and operate.

Amber consistently challenges business owners on the thinking that being busy equals being productive. One of the most insightful lessons from Amber that I, and my audience, have learned is that productivity, or lack of it, is a result of your mindset.
Amber challenges us to consider that rather than to do lists and spreadsheets, productivity is a result of how we think about time and our use of it as business owners, as the CEO's.

Her insights into the next level thinking about efficiency, productivity and creating the outcomes that drive our business forward are spot on and actionable. Every time she is on the show I receive emails of praise for her from my listeners!
I am grateful to know Amber because she has made a tremendous impact on my businesses as well as in the businesses of my listeners.

Becoming Limitless - Guest Interview

Becoming Limitless with Tanessa Shears

Enjoy a clip from

our conversation >>

I featured Amber as a guest on my podcast, Becoming Limitless, and it was a wonderful experience from start to finish. When I approached her to guest on my show, she made booking in an interview time easy and provided a unique topic idea for us to talk about with a linked blog post for me to read to understand her framework in more detail. This made it so easy to ask great questions!

Beyond giving a fantastic interview which was well received by my audience and full of practical, actionable strategies, she followed up with relevant links and images so I could prepare the episode’s social media content.

She re-shared all clips and content I posted from our episode and went above and beyond to do a 10m Instagram Live on my page to promote the episode. As an unexpected surprise, she created her own social media post to share the episode with a bonus audio clip.

I’d highly recommend Amber as a guest on your show!
