I’m Amy Jo Szymanski, your gypsy at heart who loves to think, talk, and explore possibilities through conversations and daydreaming. As a kid, I moved a lot until my family landed in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio, where I graduated high school. In need of warmer weather and a strong desire to explore, I left Ohio for 13 years. During this time, I earned a Bachelor of Science from Kennesaw State University in Georgia while working in F&B.
My passion for meeting new people and traveling led me to live in four different states. In addition, my event management roles allowed me to explore tons of our country and even Central America until moving back to the Akron area.
For 10+ years, I have passionately created B2B events and conferences. However, during 2020, I was laid off. Timing is everything, and I decided it was the perfect opportunity to diversify my personal and professional skillsets. Coupled with my development journey and passion for human behavior, I earned a Social + Emotional Intelligence Certified Coach® certificate from the Institute for Social + Emotional Intelligence (ISEI)®.
I started my growth mindset brand based on social and emotional intelligence skills development through intention setting. I'm a true crime junkie, human behavior enthusiast, and storyteller through events and interactions. So, creating a mission around helping others realize and share their true passions, purpose, and potential felt natural.
I came up with Intelligent Intentions to help inspire others to live focused on being self-aware and compassionate with transparent communications. All of this helps us better manage our emotions and relationships, create purposeful connections, and reduce stress and anxiety with present-minded practices.
Unexpected and uncomfortable events happen, but how we respond is the game-changer. I am grateful I decided to invest in my self-love years ago; I would not have managed my resilience and optimism through challenging times. All your support and love are so appreciated as I navigate this exciting chapter as a female entrepreneur!
