Meet Amanda Hamilton - an entrepreneurial interior designer turned community collaborator. Amanda is celebrated for her tenacious and “no bullshit” persona and this year she is celebrating 10 years of business in Calgary (she started her design studio in the middle of a recession) and recently created a new start-up called Palette Archives (providing accessible design to the masses). She has received numerous accolades for her work including the Silver Stevie Women Entrepreneur of Canada, and Avenue’s Top 40 under 40.
Amanda started as an interior designer by trade but has become a community leader in Calgary. She can talk about how she has succeeded in business over the past 10 years - taking her traditional business and expand it to create other revenue streams.
