I am the Permission Giver =P


==== Celebrated My 300th Hub in May! Yay! ====


Welcome to HubPages! And welcome to my profile! I'm glad you've stopped by, because this is where you can really get the chance to know me.

My given name is Amanda, though many in real life and especially on the social webs know me as Bema Self. I'm a 30 year old mom and thriving in the north end of Seattle, WA. The great Pacific North WET.

I am an avid opportunist, entrepreneur, life contributor, multi-tasker, mischief maker, and jill of all trades.

I am the owner of MANY enterprises. The first I started in 2004 and is call Nothin But Platinum. It was first created to be a home-studio for music production and slowly grew into an events and promotional business (among other things). My next adventure was my mobile and home mechanics business Accelerated Automotive and Accessories or AA&A (Yes that's right, I'm a woman mechanic!). In 2005 I started my online freelance writing career and have done pretty well so far. I have five main sites that I enjoy writing for and at least a dozen others that I do various work for from time to time. I also help a few of my fellow socialpreneurs with their various ventures and projects. Why not share?

In my spare time, I like to go on adventures, go camping, meditate, celebrate sabbaths, dance in the moonlight, play board games with the family, crochet, carve wood, play guitalele, play pokemon go or boggle, draw tattoo flash, browse craigslist and play Xbox.
