Whether you're looking to start your own business from the ground up, want help with marketing, familiarize yourself with legal policies, or navigate any of the complex issues that may arise within your own venture, I'm here to help.  

Who is Amanda Merrell

I have worked with government agencies and the top law firms in DC starting in 2006 before leaving to start my own successful makeup and hair company 6 years ago. In 2019 I began my consulting firm and now focus on advising many small women owned businesses in the DMV area. I've used my 17 years experience within the business and legal world to teach women how to write legal and effective contracts, negotiate settlements, launch marketing campaigns, enter their desired industry, network, grow their businesses, and most importantly sell their value as a business person to the right people rather than the products or services they're offering.
