We had the good fortune of connecting with Amanda Rodriguez and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Amanda, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?
It’s more than just starting a business, it’s starting something that matters and that makes a difference. Join The Wavement is all about living a life full of life, starting from within and letting it pour out. It’s a movement inspiring individuals to act consciously, and live a wellness oriented life. We are currently launching reusable eco friendly tote bags. We will also be donating to organizations with every purchase made, and continuing to host yoga and meditation classes to promote a conscious lifestyle.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I’m excited to see how far this will go. I feel the best way to start something is for it to be something you truly believe in. It has to be YOU. You won’t put the same enthusiasm and effort into something you are not passionate about. I’m excited to launch our store, a store with a purpose. A purpose to do good and feel good. I want the world to know, that commUNITY is everything. Connectedness. You must start with yourself, make yourself better. Then, you’ll have that natural energy to inspire people to join you. It’s a Wavement, to living a life full of life! #JoinTheWavement

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
The beach, yoga, bike riding, frost museum, green life organic bistro, Brickell City Center, Planta, Key Biscayne. Rent city bikes and take a ride to south beach through Venetian causeway. Take a dip in the ocean, have lunch at Planta vegan restaurant. Early morning yoga and meditation every day. Maybe a sunrise beach yoga. It always leaves you feeling refreshed and ready for the day. Spend a day in Key Biscayne. There’s beaches, restaurants, bike trails, nature trails. Spend some time in Brickell. Shop in Brickell City Center, the mall is beautiful. Have lunch at Green Life Organic Bistro on Brickell Ave. Visit frost museum. It’s beautiful and you need a few hours to spend here. Visit the Design District and Wynwood.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
Honestly, my life experiences. Leading me to find yoga and meditation at such a young age, it completely changed my perspective and attitude towards life. Also my dad, for his time living, he engraved in me life principals and a lot of strength.
