Amy Alvarez is a serial entrepreneur who has used her creative skills at several ventures, including a custom kid's shoe venture, a modest clothing line and more recently, a brick and mortar upscale kids boutique, which she co-owned with her mom. All of Amy's choices were centered around being able to be home with her twin boys. Each time Amy was on the verge of success, she took a close look at the cost to her children and prayerfully chose to walk away. Her brave story is inspiring and really does teach us that apostolic success is not always measured by the same standard the world measures success. God's thoughts are not our thoughts and His ways are not our ways. Do not beat yourself up over failure. Instead, take a step back and realize that God might be leading you in a different direction, for His purpose to be fulfilled in your life. We hope you are blessed by this podcast!

We're starting Season 2 off with a name change to Apostolic Girl Boss. In this episode, we will cover the 5 pillars of being a living Apostolic Girl Boss. How it affects everything you do. How it will bless everyone that you touch and how everything that you are, from the inside out, must strive to bring glory to Him alone.
Social Media followers are becoming more and more selective with who they follow. This podcast encourages you to niche yourself down to the select few people who are getting value from your content. In time, they will share you with their friends and you will grow organically to have a following that really wants to be there with you.
A gentle reminder to Christian creators that people crave what they consume. We are blessed with the opportunity to be a voice to a small audience of people who choose to follow us. Content creation is a fine art that should be done prayerfully and carefully.
