I am the founder, visionary, sheep-herder and general bottle-washer. aZzleep is my business baby, and it has 100 per cent of my attention and care. My parents were entrepreneurs.

I have always been surrounded by self-starters and I suppose it's in my blood. Although my natural home is working with artists, or being alone with my computer to write creatively, I am just as comfortable selling, and marketing. And while I fantasise about being able to hire great minds to help me build aZzleep to a global success, for now I will continue to communicate with agents, and content creators. Keep abreast of meditation and wellness trends. And continue to compile content until I have the money to produce it to the highest standard. In short, I am a multitasker, a producer, a perfectionist, and a woman that is determined to make this Sleep App a success with the cream of Irish talent. For me, it is not a matter of if aZzleep will be a hit, but when. And I've made it my vocation to see this to fruition.

Recommendations

Amanda has been my right-hand support for nearly 2 decades. She has helped me make significant decisions that were crucial to the success and growth of McSport and HIT Fitness. She is a pegmatitic thinker and offers an honest and fair judgment when required. With nearly one hundred staff her level-headedness has been regularly called upon over these difficult months throughout COVID. She is multi-talented and one pf the hardest working mothers I have come across. In this day and age, it is difficult to be a wife, mother of 2, and have a career but Amanda has managed all of these which is a feat in itself. I wish her well in his new career, and I have no doubt it will be a huge success.

Amanda was a participant on Ktapult program, a pre accelerator run by Dun Laoighre Rathdown LEO. As program manager and a mentor to Amanda, I got to know her and her business very well. I cannot recommend Amanda highly enough, she has huge drive, ambition, tenacity and will deliver against all odds.

Although much of the start up principals were new to Amanda, she had a hunger to learn, a willingness to try and an ability to absorb and process information.

Amanda is highly networked and has capacity to reach audiences at scale with her experience in media, music and publishing. Although there are obvious gaps in Amanda’s team, I believe she is one to watch in the startup space.
