Our Story

Our founder and Coach, Amanda Manigault  became a teenage, single mom at the age of sixteen and rather than give up, she pushed harder.  She took her own business from the front porch, to her parents basement and have since never looked back.  She's been an entrepreneur for over forty years.  She had some good years and bad years, experienced many ups & downs in life but she NEVER QUIT!   In fact, she became the author of LIVING ON EDGE "while trying to make it to the top" and today it's her quest to help RESTORE, REPLENISH & REBUILD families.  She's vowed to spend the rest of her life helping working single moms & children.
