+ My strategy


We weren't created to do it alone. Let's make a massive impact, together. 

   Your passion

_____________


Dream Team


But you do have to make a change. That's where I step in. 

I know you’re an impactful entrepreneur with BIG dreams ready to show the world what you've got!
But… you’re one more round of microwaved coffee away from a toddler-like tantrum and total burn out. 

But it doesn’t have to be this way... You don't



In the wise words of our pal Rach Hollis, “Someone else’s opinion of you is none of your business.”

But if we're being honest (& we totally are!), you're stuck in the people pleasing, saying yes to everyone & spinning your wheels game and it's costing you. 

Have to waste hours on social media chasing leads, saying yes to everyone & working with the wrong (& frankly, pain in the rear end) clients 



Have to wear all the hats, stay stuck doing a million things and getting paid next to nothing when it's all said and done

Have to work till 2 AM and then rise before the rooster crows (and that’s early, trust me, I grew up on a farm.) bc you just need to do "one more thing"



 With a Bachelor’s degree in International business and marketing and after working 5 years as a marketing manager for a 1 billion dollar company, I decided to say adios to the corporate-level life and started my own thing! 

Now, I get to help high-achieving service based entrepreneurs (like you!) attract and convert consistent high-end clients and scale their businesses without wasting hours on tasks that don't actually move the needle!

Marketing Strategist & Coach helping you go from entrepreneur to expert. 

I'm Ashley Mae

Growing up in a small southern town where everyone knew everyone, I was determined to get out and make a name for myself. I busted my butt double majoring in international business & marketing and minoring in Chinese to fulfill my dream of living abroad and climbing the corporate ladder fast.
 
 After I graduated, I landed my dream job as a marketing and logistics manager for a 1-billion dollar company complete with running a team of 40+ people and a chance for a  promotion that would send me abroad to help with international campaigns. The only problem, my quest for impact turned into a never ending game of people pleasing & saying yes to everyone and everything.
After years of 60+ hour work weeks, the promises of living abroad never fulfilled and total burnout backed by a lack of serious passion I said adios to corporate life and went back to school. 
A new degree and a new job in a top ranked office later.. There was just one problem - I realized I MISSED MARKETING (cue the hand slap to the face moment).

To fill the creative void, I decided to start a blog on a whim. I took all my marketing knowledge, invested in several courses and read a TON of books and went to work. Within 1 year that blog had turned into a full blown business complete with 1:1 consulting, paid collaborations and speaking engagements… but, it was not all fun and glamorous.

I quickly fell into the trap of comparison, shiny object syndrome and caring WAY too much what others thought of me (which lead to me offering services for free and wasting SO many hours on social media trying to “keep up”.) The fear of failure crippled me and kept me from saying “no” when I KNEW I should have... but, I mean, the never ending "Glad you wasted thousands of dollars on a degree you're not even using" talk and constant doubt from friends and family were getting old and I was DETERMINED to be a success.

Little did I know, my world was about to be rocked. 

As I sat in our tiny half renovated bathroom staring at a little pink plus sign my heart sank and the first thought that came to mind “I don’t have time to work on my business as it is, I’m never going to be successful now..” - yep, the girl who had prayed for a baby for years and who had suffered a miscarriage that broke her heart was now putting her business before growing her family. I had officially hit rock bottom and I KNEW something had to change and FAST.

It didn’t happen all at once, but I started to simplify. I dug deep into what was working and I eliminated what wasn’t. I tracked my numbers, implemented systems and I made a PLAN. 6 months later (and 7 months pregnant) I walked in my boss’ office, handed him my 2 weeks notice and said hello to putting my dreams and success ahead of everyone else’s.

Along the way I’ve discovered simple systems and high-converting marketing strategies that have allowed me to scale my business and replace that 9-5 income while only working 3 days a week (oh, and totally use that marketing degree to boot!). But, most of all, I get the honor to make an impact on some incredible high-achieving women who then go out and make their impact on the world with their business.



REAL TALK: THEY’RE WAITING FOR YOU.



Let's work together

I’m just gonna come right out and say it, I never wanted to be an entrepreneur.

How I Went From Burned Out People Pleaser To Helping Ambitious Entrepreneurs Make An Impact Online

Who? The people YOU were meant to impact. 
(I don’t think your family and friends would hate seeing you less overwhelmed about your business either. ;) ) 

It’s time to stop playing small my friend and step into the impactful leader I know YOU are.

Growing up in a small southern town where everyone knew everyone, I counted down the days until I could finally see that little town in my rear view mirror.

As the second person in my family to actually go to college, I was determined to make a name for myself.

I busted my butt double majoring in international business & marketing and minoring in Chinese to fulfill my dream of living abroad and climbing the corporate ladder fast.
 
After I graduated, I landed what I thought was my dream job as a marketing and logistics manager for a 1-billion dollar company complete with running a team of 40+ people and a promise for a 1 year promotion that would send me abroad to help with international campaigns.

Ashley is hands down the top marketing and business expert I have run across. I love how she views things in a positive light and focuses on making sure the strategy and execution align.
Before working with Ashley, I felt overwhelmed, disorganized and lost with a ton of loose ends driving my business into the ground. NOT ANYMORE!
Working with Ashley has impacted everything in my business - I have raised my prices by 20% (and made MORE sales without any hesitation) and have gained so much clarity on my business goals (and for once, I’m actually reaching them!)

"She is the biggest business game changer I have ever paid for and worth every penny!"

After working with Ashley I felt extremely excited about what the future holds for my business.
Just by asking me a few questions prior to our video call she had pin pointed exactly what I needed to be doing to better my business.
She suggested I go down a different road that I honestly never even thought of. I even ended up booking my FIRST 5 paid clients after working with her!
If you have the chance to set up a time to chat with Ashley, DO IT do not even question it!

"Booked my first 5 PAID clients in less than 48 hours after working with her!"

When it comes to the area of marketing and business strategies, Ashley is one of the most gifted, talented, and anointed people I know. 
She helped me figure out my ideal client and the best way to direct my business to make sales with an actionable plan I could easily follow.
She constantly gave her time and energy to help me succeed, and wasn't afraid to challenge me to think in ways that would help me and my business grow!

Ashley’ has completely taken me to the next level! 
Before Ashley, I felt disorganized, overwhelmed, and unheard.
With her help, I was able to organize what my true mission is with my platform and identify the serving purpose catered to my ideal client.
Her guidance is fool-proof and very easy to follow. I’ve now discovered more of a niche and focus, and feel fired up!

"Has taken me to the next level."

client love

We met at a worship night at our church. I complimented his Carolina blue shirt and asked if he was a UNC fan (go heels!) to which he very dramatically answered "no, I am a wolfpack fan".. *que heart shattered* 

Somehow I looked past that flaw when he asked me to coffee (the way to my heart) the following week.. and as they say, the rest is history!

She's her daddy's girl and her mama's world! Complete with blue eyes and bouncing curls, this little girl came into our lives and it's never been the same. She LOVES to wear hats, dances to every song she hears and loves books just as much as her mama! 

Oh, and she already has the sassiest personality I have ever seen- we are def. gonna have our hands full with this one!

That Old Book Smell 

There is no better smell in the world than the smell of an old book. You know, the ones filled with captivating stories, crinkly pages and coffee stained covers bc they are always on your side table. 

You will forever find me cuddled in my big leather chair, with my cat curled up by my side and with my nose buried in a book.

Fishing

What can I say, I'm a southern girl. My dad got me my first fishing pole at 3 years old and I've been fishing ever since. After living in the city for 2 years, I told Ben I was tired of the city life and wanted some land but under one condition- it needed to have a pond. True Story. 

We now live on a 10.5 acre horse farm with my very own pond that I go fishing in at least 3 times a week. (yes, seriously!

Traveling

My senior year of college I spent a semester abroad in Hong Kong and the travel bug has had a hold on me ever since. From traveling all around South East Asia to Europe, I am always planning our next trip. 

It is true what they say, life is short and the world is wide. I plan to see as much of God's artwork as I can.

Jesus

True story, I was once an atheist. But looking back, I can clearly see that God has his hand ALL over my story. I found God and His love my freshman year of college when a sweet girl in my dorm befriended me and started to teach me about Jesus. 

Through her kindness, stories and knowledge, God started to chip away at my heart and I soon dedicated my life to Him. Hands down, the best decision I have ever made.
