Overcoming Mediocrity

EMPOWERED WOMEN

Lindsey Oaks

At the tender age of 17, Lindsey Oaks informed her parents that she would be moving 500 miles away to pursue a career competing horses as a professional upon graduation from school. She did this even though she’d never competed in a regulation competition! Over the next decade, Lindsey would repeatedly learn how to become an entrepreneur the hard way. She did make it, establishing herself as a competitor on the world stage and as a top-tier horse trainer and coach to aspiring equestrians. During a stint working in the racehorse industry, Lindsey convinced her boss to buy her an “expensive camera” to provide owners of young racehorses with nice photographs of their future stars in training. She quickly found, however, that she had no idea how to work this fancy equipment! A crash course in photography, and a few years later, Lindsey launched a photography business creating branding images specifically for entrepreneurs. Right away, Lindsey saw that many of the starving artists, creative freelancers, and brilliant speakers hiring her, had no idea how to seize their own personal brand’s marketing power. Realizing that her unique experience as a coach provided her with the opportunity to help others reach their potential, she began assisting them in developing clear, cohesive messaging across platforms.

Lindsey now lives in the Chicago suburbs with her favorite model: her dog Leroy. She spends her time teaching “horse-crazy kids” (and adults) to communicate effectively with 1000 lb. animals who don’t speak English and creating strategies for coaches, consultants, and influencers to communicate with the world. Her clients describe her as a coffee-addicted, high-energy smarty pants, who tells stories to teach lessons.

My Story

Dreams Carried on Horseback

At the tender age of 17, Lindsey Oaks informed her parents that she would be moving 500 miles away to pursue a career competing horses as a professional upon graduation from school. The crazy part? She’d never competed in a regulation competition. Lindsey’s is the unlikely story of a kid from South Georgia, who, together with her equine partner “Taylor,” climbed the ranks to compete on the world stage and the real-world lessons they learned along the way. These were lessons that Lindsey would one day use as a framework to help others project their voice into the world.

VICTORIOUS WOMEN

Briane Amodeo

Briane Amodeo

Born in Chicago and raised in the suburbs, Briane had a busy life with divorced parents. Growing up changing houses every other weekend took getting used to but having two houses for double the love was a wonderful thing. The encouragement, and feeling of always wanting to please, led to being a high honor student through high school while being in the color guard and on the track team, where she was a thrower.

Originally attending the University of Wisconsin – Parkside with a partial scholarship and majoring in criminal justice, Briane chose to change her life drastically and transfer to The Illinois Institute of Art – Schaumburg for photography after a year and a half. After two and a half years there, she completed her bachelor’s degree in fine arts with a concentration in photography.

After stumbling through college wondering where to go in life, she never wanted to own her own company, however, less than two years later, she launched BriAmo Photography Inc. (the name coming from throwing around ideas at her internship!) BriAmo Photography is growing and Briane can see a future for herself and the budding photographers she will help over the years. She also donates her photography skills when possible.

In Briane’s free time, her dog is her life, and almost her size, weighing in at 120 pounds. Spending time with her family is also a huge part of her and she gets to spend it with her cousins doing another thing she loves: water sports! She has tubed since she was around five years old, when she learned to swim, skied since she was 11, and taught herself to kneeboard in her teens. Briane has always had a love for motorcycles, obtaining a motorcycle license when she turned 18, but has never splurged on getting herself a bike. We all need a dream!
