How
We Got
Started

as shared by our founder, amanda

The American Dream and family has always meant so much to me. I was adopted from Paraguay at a young age to an amazing American family. My family was always open and honest with me so not a day went by that I didn’t understand I was different (in a good way) and traveled far to get here (4,712.73 miles to be exact). Fortunately, my family always treated me like one of them and instilled priceless values and lessons. Lessons and values that I cherish to this day.

​Flash forward two decades, I began working various marketing jobs never truly finding my spot in the business world. The ceilings kept getting lower and lower and I felt like I was living in Groundhog Day. I found myself wanting more out of my career and life. In 2015, I traveled to Paraguay and Argentina and located my biological family. It was a profound and mind-blowing experience that changed the trajectory of my life. I was deeply impacted by the lack of opportunity and the level of poverty I saw.

Upon my return to the U.S. I was inspired to do something. One evening after our monthly Board of Directors meeting, I explained to one of my colleagues that I felt compelled to do something for my community based on all the things I saw on my journey. He convinced me to run for the Board of Education in Wallingford, Connecticut. A few short weeks after the political seed was planted, I was knee-deep in campaigning with only a few months until the election.

​I was a relatively new resident in town, the youngest candidate and the only Hispanic candidate to run not to mention I was up against many incumbents who had all the name recognition you could hope for. Despite the odds, I was elected to the 7th out of 9 seats. It was a humbling and time-intensive experience and I declined to run for re-election because I was ready for the next stage.

​In 2018, my family of two became three and I was simultaneously subject to a disheartening mass lay off. Rather than letting it get me down, I pushed forward as a new mom and decided to never look back. Business ownership has always been a dream of mine so I truly feel that I am on the path to the American Dream.

This amazing promotional product company was born from a difficult time and I am honored to be able to share my decade of marketing experience with you!
