We had the good fortune of connecting with Amy Davis and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Amy, other than deciding to work for yourself, what else do you think played a pivotal role in your story?
I was raised in a very structured, conservative, and religious environment. It largely shaped the decisions I made and who I felt I could be growing up. After getting married and having kids, I left this space. It was extremely hard. I lost lots of friends and I was completely outside of my comfort zone. That being said, I knew that I didn’t belong there any longer. Leaving this community was the hardest thing I’ve ever done in my life. After leaving, almost everything else felt “easy”. That might sound strange, but once I made the decision to leave almost everything else felt like an adventure! I finally felt like I was being my true self and living the life I had always dreamed of.
What should our readers know about your business?
In starting Pancake Social I really wanted to be able to offer “A la Carte” options to my clients. Having personally been a small business owner, I really understood that funds are often limited and that people need help to grow their companies. I am very proud to be able to offer specialized services to all of my clients. I love talking to my clients to understand their needs and resources. I am happy to work with each client individually to know how I can best help and serve them!
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
I moved to Colorado in 2011 and I am in LOVE with this state! I would take my bestie to Abejas in Golden and then walk around downtown Golden for a bit. Then we would go get cupcakes from Goldmine Cupcakes! I’d then take them for a hike in and around Red Rocks. I’d beg them to come back when the venues are open again for a concert! The next day, I’d take them to the Denver Art Museum downtown, and then give them a tour of downtown Denver and the amazing murals that are on every corner. We’d end the day with a drive up Lookout Mountian and dinner and drinks at Tellers in Applewood.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
My journey hasn’t been an easy or straightforward journey, but I have been lucky to have encountered some amazing people along the way. One of those people is Kelly, the founder of Resilience Remedy. I came into contact with Kelly when she was looking for some help with some brand design for her coaching company. I was able to work with Kelly in both a professional and coaching capacity. Working with Kelly in a coaching capacity honestly helped me to understand and reframe the road bumps I had experienced in my professional life. Kelly helped me to understand that I was taking EVERYTHING from my past into my current professional positions. We were able to work through what I really wanted for myself and my professional life. It was eye-opening to see that what we experience in our personal lives will always affect us professionally, and that’s ok. I will always appreciate Kelly’s wisdom and direction.
