AMBER SABATHIA: SUPERWOMAN!
Amber Sabathia is a Superwoman!
Amber Sabathia is a strong, confident and determined woman. I know that because when my wife and I met her back in December, you could see it on her eyes. She was proud of her CCANDY clothing line and the support was outstanding that day. She's crazy about her family. I mean, CRAZY ABOUT THEM! I know that because we talked about her adorable children at length. She also knows that it takes hard work to succeed. That's why she's constantly offering ideas and advice, focusing on the important things in life and providing inspiration for us all.
Since that December meeting and event, a lot has happened. Besides the CCandy clothing line www.CCandy.com, CC and Amber have worked extensively to give back to the community with their PitCCh In Foundation that focusing on enriching the lives of inner city youth and helps raise self-esteem...and just recently, she was part of an MLB Business Diversity Panel. It was very powerful.
Amber never stops, and coming up, Amber will take part in a panel called Mom Moguls brought to us by DivaMoms.com. The event will take place on May 7th at the Water Club in New York and will have mothers and entrepreneurs present... and our gal, Amber Sabathia will of course be part of the panel. Why wouldn't she be? The woman has literally done everything. Not only is she a dedicated mother and wife, she strives to be the best. She's a role model for young women everywhere. Much like Laura Posada, there is nothing Amber can't do.
She is an in demand speaker and has been featured in to many to count top media outlets... People Magazine, Good Day New York, YES among them and writes a column for Athletes Quarterly and 201 Magazine and a soon to be national publication.
Amber also hosts major fundraising events including the recent "Ladies Night In". It was an exciting benefit where the ladies arrived in their pajamas. They shopped various vendors & helped raise money for "Not For Sale". Amber co-hosted it with Alexis Stoudimire & Elaine Whatley. She never stops! How do I know? Because she also created two major fundraisers that raised more than a half million dollars to help establish a scholarship fund for the JCC Therapeutic Nursery on the Palisades too.
But with all she does, she says her greatest accomplishment is being a mother of four amazing children. As she said in BYB's interview with her on Christmas day, being with family and teaching them the importance of giving back is at the core of her heart. Amber said: "We’re very thankful for what we have, and we want to help others in any way we can. Giving back and caring for others is at the heart of our family."

OK yes, we're biased here. We have a special bond with the Sabathias. We share similar values and we know that hard work brings success. It doesn't get much better than CC and Amber.
Be sure to check out that DivaMoms.com event. Oh yeah, and a special thanks to Kathy Jacobson for the hard work to help me present this to you, our BYB family today! Kathy, you're the best.
