I’ve spent the past year thinking a lot about “wellth”—the idea that success is found in a lifestyle devoted to mental, physical, and emotional health. (I even wrote a book about it.) In this new series, we’re celebrating visionaries who embody what it means to be wellthy. 

In addition to being the founder of a wildly successful holistic living company, Amanda is one of the sweetest, smartest, and most authentic wellness entrepreneurs I know. Since we met a year ago, we've become fast friends, and she's someone I deeply admire. Let's hope she brings Moon Juice to Brooklyn sometime soon!

Any advice for someone who's looking to build a life that they love and follow their passion?

Follow your passion and love your life—really it's as bold and as simple as that.

If it doesn't tickle you, don't do it. If something feels off, it is. As the wise Toucan Sam told me when I was a little girl, "Just follow your nose."
