Praise + Testimonials
I have so much gratitude for the women I work with and for their willingness to simplify so they can grow their business and experience more freedom in their life. Here's what they have to say about working together:
"Ashley is my go-to expert when it comes to simplifying all the crazy that runs through my head. To-do lists, projects, mindset shifts, you name it…Ashley knows how to sort through the information overload I’m usually feeling and cut right to the chase of what I need to do vs. what’s just a shiny distraction. She’s gifted at asking the right questions, in the right way, in order to help trim our to-do lists and finally grant the permission we need to stop doing everything and being everything to everyone.
If you want to work with a coach who can show you where to focus your mind, your energy AND your time so you can grow your business without overcomplicating it, then I wholeheartedly recommend Ashley."

“Before working with Ashley, I’d spent more than 2 years grasping at straws and spending my money on different educational workshops and online classes hoping they would help me improve my business, attract clients and be successful. So even though I loved Ashley’s point of view about simplifying your business, initially, I was worried that her ideas might not apply to my journey or that she’d provide inspiration but not a whole lot of direction.
She proved my worries false. In a very short amount of time, Ashley has helped me completely rethink and upgrade my web site, improve the packages I offer to clients and finally feel like I’ve found my voice and point of view as a photographer. Our sessions have given me a sense of purpose and, because of that, I wake up each morning knowing what I want to get done and feeling productive and confident too.”

“The level of support Ashley gives her clients is unparalleled for a coach today. She’s present on the calls, available by email and there when the life stuff comes up too. This, regardless of the other benefits, is what made the investment to work with her more than worth it.
Ashley will give you everything you need to simplify and grow your business all while it feeling good and freeing. Together, we have finally nailed my niche, messaging and ideal client (even though I thought I had it figured out before) and fine-tuned my web site, offers and content. Now, I have so much clarity around who I help and confidence in my voice that soulmate clients are reaching out to me.
Running my business has gotten way less scary and way more simple. It actually feels like a business when before I felt like I was doing "all of the things" but didn't really know what I was doing. Now it's starting to be fun and I’m experiencing a quantum leap. My business actually feels like freedom!"
-Deanne Vincent, Women’s Empowerment Coach, www.deannevincent.com
"Ashley is a thoughtful, gentle, clarifying and supportive presence in a hectic entrepreneurial world. During our time working together, she helped me get back into business mode after baby and kept me focused on my big goals. We were always coming back to those goals and taking steps toward them instead of getting bogged down in small, un-essential tasks, which was very clarifying and simplifying for me. Ashley also encouraged me to set a more ambitious financial goal in my business, and during our time working together I've hit or exceeded that goal every month."
-Anna Laman, Brand + Content Coach, www.annarlaman.com
"I was really nervous and skeptical to work with Ashley at first because I had never worked with a coach before and didn't want to get too deep into the woo-woo stuff. Ashley reassured me that she focuses on tangible, real, practical steps. It doesn't sound too sexy, but IT WORKS - especially for a person like me who's scatterbrained and always drawn to the next idea.
After working together on my new business, I have clarity and confidence about my next steps. I understand where I need to flush out some more systems and processes and feel more confident about the direction I'm heading with my brand and what I need to do to launch it. Having Ashley break things down for me in bite-sized pieces and giving me a process to follow and understand was SO necessary."

"Ashley really gets it. She walks the walk of balancing life and business through simplifying and honing in on what matters the most to move the needle forward. She pulls from her extensive knowledge and background in publishing, writing, PR and creative entrepreneurship to help build a business that works for you, without wasting time on unnecessary steps."
-Robyn Conley Downs, Founder of Real Food Whole Life and Host of the Feel Good Effect Podcast, www.realfoodwholelife.com
“While working with Ashley, I gained the confidence I needed to tackle bigger goals in my business and learned how to say no and stop doing “all the things” so I can be more efficient. With Ashley’s guidance, I’ve streamlined my day to day work by setting up a new ordering system, outsourcing my product fulfillment and bringing on my first part-time employee. These changes have given me time to focus on more important activities in my business like getting visible, building my community and developing relationships with new sales outlets.
The most important thing to know about working with Ashley, though, is that she never pushes her own agenda or tries to get you to fit into a box based on what other entrepreneurs are doing. She guides you through your thought process so you can think through complex issues and decide what will make the biggest impact in your business before you take your next steps.”
-Amber Thibaut, founder + owner, Coco Moon Hawaii, www.cocomoonhawaii.com
“When Ashley first invited me to work with her, it felt indulgent and irresponsible to pay for coaching. But I was also in a place where I sensed that coaching would be really useful, so I took a chance and signed up.
Over the course of working with Ashley, I have found my creative direction. I launched my floral design business, started getting visible online and joined my local farmers’ market as a vendor. I’ve started freelancing for events and have a plan to start selling floral subscriptions in 2018.
I also now know why Ashley is so well suited to work with creative entrepreneurs, especially those who have big ideas but aren't sure how to execute them or who get easily overwhelmed by the enormity of it all and lose momentum. Ashley is a wealth of resources and gives structure to all the uncertain, nebulous business choices in the daily life of a creative entrepreneur. She’s a sounding board and the rare person who sees both the details and the big picture. Having her by your side is a huge boost of confidence, and insightful and motivating too."
-Katie Githens, floral designer, Clary Sage Studio
"Ashley’s support has been invaluable as I’ve grown my business! She's skilled at staying focused on the big picture and helping me understand when opportunities or to-dos aren't aligned with my core message or goals. I've learned to say no, simplify my business tasks and focus on the specific action steps that will actually move me forward.
What I love most about Ashley is that she truly embodies what she teaches. She is an incredible example of living with purpose, building a business doing what you love, clearing the clutter and creating a lifestyle of freedom. I highly recommend her to anyone looking to build an intentional business aligned with their strengths and the lifestyle they desire."
