Amber Zaricor: Wholehearted Living & The Impact of Empowered Women

Amber Zaricor Podcast Guest


In this episode, we learn how our life changes when instead of following the conventional path, we choose purpose and passion. 

We hear the story of guest, Amber Zaricor, who quit her job and created a freelance business so she could actively live a life in integrity with her values. Wholehearted living made the guiding principle of Amber’s life and it is also what led to the creation of Fill Your Cup Conference, Amber’s brainchild and an event that allowed Amber to serve women and further her belief and message around the importance of living with your whole heart and choosing passion and purpose over the socially accepted or expected routes. 

This episode is for every woman out there who has certain yearnings in her heart that she continues to suppress out of fear of the unknown. Amber’s journey will show you just what happens when we bet on ourselves and we believe that our inner voice and not the external noise has the answers that we need.

About the guest-

As an Enneagram 2w3, Amber believes in building deep relationships, living intentionally, and doing everything with her whole heart. “Heart” is an ongoing theme for Amber, and something she weaves into every interaction and life decision.

Listed amongst The Top 10 Designers in Tennessee,  Amber’s heart comes through in the naming of her Nashville-based branding agency Copperheart Creative, where she leads a team of creative-preneurs in building brands through powerful storytelling. After years of agency experience, Amber discovered that her passion for serving clients and connecting people through design was expanding her purpose and inviting her towards something deeper.

She fully embraced this theme of connection by serving women through a weekly Wine Night she hosts in her home. That little step led to bigger leaps, as she experienced the impact of women supporting other women.

Noticing how the Wine Nights were transforming the hearts of women in her circle, Amber continued to pursue a life of encouragement, joy, and support by co-founding the Fill Your Cup Conference — a one-day event for career women to rest, connect, and rediscover their passion.

Through her podcast, Small Business Big Heart, Amber shares the raw stories of real business owners. Within every interview, she digs deep into the heart behind each entrepreneur, with the purpose of inspiring and uplifting business owners around the world.

In her free time, you can find Amber filling her cup by journaling at local coffee shops, going on bike rides with her tall, dark, and handsome husband, and spreading hope through sidewalk chalk around her community.
