From Waking up to going to bed, Can you give us a play by play of a typical day for you?  (Amber Perkins)  I wake up around 6:30, homeschool my children after making breakfast and then I head to work. I travel around town to my clients. I try and squeeze in an hour of “me time” at the gym whenever I can. When I return home I scoop my kids up, take Amber Perkinsthem to the lake or to go play basketball. We will then finish school work while I make dinner. We snuggle and read, skateboard or go for bike rides before bed. Once they are asleep...

I am blessed to be surrounded by so many deep, intellectual, kind, loving people. I received inspiration from different people at different times depending on the words of wisdom I’m seeking.  (SISS)  What does Smart is so Sexy mean to you?  (Amber Perkins)  There is something so stimulating about an intellectual conversation.
