Amy Pocsik is the CEO and Co-Founder of the Women’s Business League and founder of Bold Moves.
We Mean Business highlights the everyday women trailblazers that are making it happen for themselves and within their communities. These women who are showing up and taking action! Our intention is to uplift the saying “empowered women, empower women” by giving them a platform to share their stories and pass along wisdom.
“ Your dreams are a compass. Learn to trust the direction of your heart. Because success is never a straight line. No matter how it looks from the outside.”
Amy Pocsik is the CEO and Co-Founder of the Women’s Business League - a community where powerful businesswomen connect, grow and prosper. Her superpower is working with female entrepreneurs and business owners to identify – both the challenge points and high points - so that they can triple profit, cut costs and optimize systems. She helps others understand the power of creating space so you never have to sacrifice your health for your business.
Amy is also the Founder of Bold Moves, a platform where she partners with female founders to make an impact, helping them own the role of CEO - professionally and personally. Because she knows what it was like to be in the opposite position, unfulfilled and longing for more. That’s why she made it her life’s work to make sure every woman is empowered to achieve a bold vision for her life and business.
At age 27, I had a successful career - running a $40M dollar budget, negotiating million-dollar contracts, and managing hundreds of people, most of whom were twice my age. At the same time, I had this nagging feeling that somehow this couldn’t be all there is. Every morning, I slapped on a smile and a suit, but I couldn’t shake the feeling that the life I dreamed of was slipping away.
One afternoon, I met with a colleague who was 15 years ahead of me on the ladder I was climbing. Halfway through our conversation, she poured out her sorrow over her stifled dreams, failed relationships, and overall disappointing life. She confirmed my worst nightmare: that if I continued on this path, I would end up just like her.
In that moment I knew I had a decision to make: walk away from a stable six figure salary and a career I’d spent a decade building or pursue my entrepreneurial dream with everything I had.
I chose the latter because I wasn’t going to waste my one and only life pursuing someone else’s agenda. I honored my desire to create a life I wanted to live, and to build a business that supported my dream. Now, I empower other women to exponentially increase their success.
