skeptical that simplifying actually works? (read this for proof)

I’ve never been shy about sharing the ways simplifying and streamlining my business has helped me grow more, and allowed me to live a more rich, fulfilling life. Case in point: I’m writing this on a sunny patio as I wrap up my fourth vacation this month. I know I wouldn’t be enjoying this time off with my family – and resting easy that my business is still growing while I’m away – if things were a hot mess behind the scenes. 

I don't share things like this to brag about how great life is or how much freedom and flexibility I’m enjoying. Far from it. I share because I want you to hear what’s possible for you if you commit to building your business like a simplified entrepreneur.

That said, I know it’s scary to make the leap. Because even though doing less and enjoying more freedom sounds dreamy and even though you think you’d like to run a simpler, more succesful business, you might have trouble believing it could work for you.

After all, the way you’ve been operating in your business (let’s just call it all out hustle mode) has got you this far - and it’s hard to see how doing things differently will help you grow to the next level.

So I’m thinking what you need is more evidence that simplifying works to grow your business. I’m happy to oblige by introducing you to three women who said yes to simplifying so they could experience big shifts and incredible growth in their business, and their lives this summer.

First meet Cara Chatellier, a digital marketing consultant who was too busy serving her clients to find time to grow. We created a schedule that helps her get through her to do list each day and still have time for big picture work. Then we streamlined her services so she could stop creating time-consuming proposals and start selling signature offers. Since making these shifts, she’s grown her client base, sold her biggest package to date and made time for things she truly values outside work like her friends, exercise and travel.

Next, I want to introduce you to experienced graphic designer and brand stylist Allison Burns. Allison came to me with multiple ideas for passive income projects that would help her expand her business model. We worked together to identify the right one for her strengths, target audience and available time. Then we streamlined her approach to creating and marketing her project so she could get it off the ground without feeling overwhelmed. When her project launches (soon!), she’ll be able to serve a new audience and bring in more revenue while working less.

Finally, I want you to meet Tianna Yentzer, a boudoir photographer whose work behind the camera empowers women to discover their true beauty. Over the past few months, we’ve firmed up the foundation of her business (from her web site to her workflows), streamlined her sales process (resulting in consistently higher sales) and made space for new creative projects (like a women’s retreat she’s hosting this fall). The best part? Because she’s running a more streamlined business, Tianna has been able to do ALL of this while learning how to rest and overcome her workaholic habits.

As you read these women’s stories, you may find yourself relating to them. You may be wondering what it would be like if you stopped hustling and started simplifying. You might feel curious about the results you could get if you work through my coaching framework so you can grow to the next level without overcomplicating things.

And yet, some of you may also be thinking that sounds nice, but I’m just not ready

I can assure you that you are.

So if you know in your gut that you are the only thing standing in your way between where you are now and where you want to be, I want to hear from you. If you know that you can’t sustain this pace for another season, I want to hear from you. And if you’re clear that your business is a hot mess behind the scenes and you know it’s holding you back from experiencing the success and growth and freedom you want as a business owner, it’s time for us to connect 1:1.

When you're ready, just click here to book a time on my personal calendar.

I can’t wait to talk about what’s possible for you.

With love,

Ashley
