How to Make Genuine Connections in the Way That God Intended Us To with Amanda Christine

39: How to Make Genuine Connections in the Way That God Intended Us To with Amanda Christine

Do you find it hard to make genuine connections with people in our day and age?

We live in a world where it can feel like everyone is hiding behind a screen, and the pandemic made it harder than ever to make in-person connections. I’m joined by Amanda Christine to talk about why it’s so important for us to be making meaningful connections, and she’s sharing her practical tips on how to do it. She’s also sharing why making connections is something that God intended us to do. Have you ever thought about it that way?

Amanda has mastered the art of asking the right questions to get people to open up. I know this because when we met I told her things I would never normally tell to someone I just met!

Amanda is the founder of the Society of Women Business Owners (SOWBO), a support group recognized for connecting, exciting, and challenging female entrepreneurs. Through one-to-one business coaching sessions, classroom-style training, and live events, Amanda helps women achieve measurable results while not losing sight of their unique influence and greater purpose. Amanda wants to live in a world where success is measured by genuine relationships, messy vulnerability, and passionate risk-taking. When she’s not working with business owners, you can find Amanda sipping coffee and intensely reading or writing at her favorite local coffee shop. 

If you want to become someone like Amanda who brings people together and makes them feel comfortable enough to open up, you’re in the right place. 

In This Episode, You’ll Discover:

  • Why making connections is a God-given purpose 
  • How to overcome the challenges in our society that interfere with making connections 
  • The art of having a conversation
  • The scriptural significance of being a unit through friends and relationships
  • The importance of trust

Amanda’s passion for supporting other women warms my heart. I hope this episode gets you thinking about how you can take your connections to the next level. After all, when you open up to making meaningful connections, you might meet someone who could change your life.
