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

Hi Amalia, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?
I felt that traditional networking groups have outdated practices and I wanted to change the way we network for modern moms, and accommodate for all types of moms provide a place for them to network without limitations. The book Who, Not, How by Dan Sullivan and Dr. Benjamin Hardy. The Author talks about how we hurt our self by trying to do it all by our selves. There is one chapter in the book that changed my life called ( stop competing and start collaborating). This helped me pivot my career and achieve bigger goals through accelerating teamwork. I joined many networking groups and as a result I noticed a huge GAP and no Gain. This lead me to do more research on how to fix the gap and teach others about the gain. I also love to surround my self with others who have failed and succeeded at the end. Just grabbing any nuggets I can to share with my networking sisters.

In this process I came across absolutely amazing ladies named Vanessa Guzman, Kiamary Rivera Casanova, Jeanie Vee. I watched them speak at meetings and saw they had great value. I knew that I wanted to collaborate with them immediately. As time went on we all were on the same page of the gaps we noticed with traditional networking and wanted to make the change. That’s when we all developed Commission Like a Boss. We are fairly new but we are incredibly strong with collective background of IT, Marketing, Networking and Sales. We all as a collective have developed a system that helps women and men develop their business goals and teach strategies on how grow and keep a healthy retention rate.

Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
I am a local Realtor located in Katy, TX. I went into real estate because I knew I loved working with people and I love to help. I loved to connect with other moms and I was great at brunches with the ladies. One day a friend said why don’t you start your own Facebook mom group and so I did. I created The Bad Moms of Katy/Fulshear. I was pleasantly surprised on how many people who moved from other states needed to find connections. I started coffee dates and wine downs and made so many friends. I was already part of networking but I needed real mom fun. As time went on I also met many amazing business moms and would talk with them on their needs. This is how I started seeing the networking GAP.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I am a big fan of cover bands so any music bands I like are in town will be at Wildcatters, for crawfish when the season is in I love Pinche Crawfish and you can follow them on social media to find their locations. We love going to MKT and NL for a drink with friends or letting the kids play on the open fields. When it comes to sports we have two locations we love and that is Social sports bar on 1463 and Texas Boarders and Grill off of 1093. Our favorite dinner locations to take friends is Pearl and Vine and the Local Table on 1463.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
The book Who, Not, How by Dan Sullivan and Dr. Benjamin Hardy. Another person who I believe helped me see business differently was my friend Josie Pierce, she was a mother, wife, friend to so many and with large obsticals being in the automotive world were men ran almost all of it. She created a company and has dominated her market. I saw fear, and hope each time her business would have to pivot but yet she never gave up and instead she learned how to grow with every turn.
