welcome!

My name is Amanda Verdery Young; wordsmith, kindly strategist, web developer, and marketing angel. My speciality is helping conscious and change making businesses, especially those founded by women, step into the light and conjure success. My unconventional path has made for a dynamic, diverse set of professional skills centered in communication and development. 

I've been an entrepreneur for over 13 years. What I've learned is that people want to find community and purpose, want to connect with what's real and visceral in their lives, and want to believe they can make a solid living doing what they love.  

I believe that our professional path is deeply entwined with who we are, why we are here, and how we find our place in the community and the greater planet we call home. My personal passions hover around arts advocacy, a deep love for nature, beauty in the everyday, and commitment to sustainable and thoughtful living. My heart trusts the conviction that life-sustaining stories can change the world for the better. It follows that my clients are often artists, healers, creative business professionals, and progressive organizations. 

I love the dreams and vitality of entrepreneurs and creatives. The success of those dreams often rests on synchronicity, courage, and surrender to something bigger than ourselves. All this makes for great storytelling, which is what modern marketing is all about. And I love a good story. I hope to hear yours soon!

Sincerely,
Amanda Verdery Young

My Professional Background & Training

Before founding Bombilore, I worked in the arts managing the many facets of artists' career development. During my twenties, I owned a little bohemian teahouse in Burlington, Vermont. I traveled to the far reaches of India and China to source teas and make local connections, and ran every element of day-to-day operations. It's still open today, over a decade later. I am a graduate of Naropa University's Jack Kerouac School of Disembodied Poetics (B.A. Writing) and I have extensive training (300+ hours) in intercultural communication and change agentry, and years of work with mindfulness arts and holistic lifestyle.  I am also a graduate of Marie Forleo's B-School- one of the most highly respected online business courses for purpose-driven women.
