Amanda O'Rourke

Hi, I’m Amanda and I’m a coach and mentor on a mission to help female entrepreneurs live a more profitable, balanced, and abundant life.

Based in Horsham, West Sussex, UK, I live with my husband, two adult sons, a dog, and a mad cat!

Previously, I ran a multi-award-winning franchise business, which I started in a virgin territory in November 2007.

I successfully sold the business in January 2019 and retrained as a coach with the Co-Active Training Institute.

I am a certified Youth Mental Health First Aider. I also volunteer as a mentor for The Girls’ Network, helping young women aged 14-16.

I am a lifelong learner and always have three or four books on the go.

Charity is important to me and I have sponsored children through World Vision for over 20 years. I believe that if we can help others, we should. I also sponsor entrepreneurs abroad through Care UK’s initiative, Lendwithcare.org.

I have appeared on television as an expert cleaner on the BBC show “What to Buy and Why” and have been featured in a number of publications, including Business Franchise, The Franchise Magazine and The Lady.

I love quizzes and once appeared on BBC’s “Pointless” with my husband. Spoiler alert – we won!

Coaching is powerful and I am passionate about releasing untapped potential in others. You do not need fixing. You already have all that you need within you.
