Reading Time: 8 Minutes“Ashlyn, when do you know its time to hire an assistant? How much were you making on your own before you brought in help?” You asked, and I’m answering. This topic makes me so happy! So, you know that I like to talk about sales copy as a copywriter, and how to leverage your words to […]

Reading Time: 7 MinutesToday, I’d like to share some of the automation workflows for your creative business that have helped ME things run on auto, even when I can’t—the things that allow my business to be productive and keep moving forward. Why? Because the other week I went to Paris to speak at The Signature Atelier photography workshop […]

Reading Time: 8 MinutesEvery “yes” must be defended by a thousand “no’s,” I’ve heard it said. Amen. And for many of us, that battle is fought out on the pages of our planners (Bob Goff quote). Today, I’m doing a video on how to plan your day—you could do this with ANY digital or analog solution! But specifically, […]

Reading Time: 7 MinutesLet’s talk about how to “GSD” as the kids say: how to be more productive with one of my favorite business tools: a Trello tutorial. Getting sidetracked looking for something basic I need in my business—a password, my EIN, the HEX codes for the Veuve Clicquot-inspired orange I use—that drives me banana pancakes. Today, I’m […]

Reading Time: 2 MinutesAuthor Laura Vanderkam stopped me dead in my page-turning by the pool in St. Lucia last sabbatical with thoughts on how to feel less busy. Ready for the zinger? When it comes to our busy-as-a-badge-of-honor, go-go-go culture, Laura’s response was worlds different: “You have more time than you think. In 168 hours in a week, […]

Reading Time: 7 MinutesThis past week we put out a survey, and hearing what y’all ACTUALLY want is always my favorite (plus, I lol’d on the couch reading some of your responses). Something that came up constantly? “I am amazed at how much you can get done! I love hearing about your processes, schedule, how you got to […]

Reading Time: 4 MinutesIn today’s post, I’ll be explaining a tool that I use to read each month: here’s my LeaderBox unboxing! So,I try to read 4 books a month, but sometimes it’s 3. MOSTLY I hit 4 however, and that’s been in big part to Michael Hyatt’s subscription box called Leaderbox. In the morning, after I finish […]

Today, I wanna retro-report on the 4 best free downloads I got in my first year of business — almost there! — and hopefully preemptively help you get your business to Kate Middleton-style poise.

(I jest. Business put-togetherness is a unicorn, but these can probably inch you a lil’ mo’ closer.)

If you’re a fan of Emily Ley, you know about Lara Casey, and vice versa. They’re buds, launched businesses nearly side-by-side, and are known for their products: Emily for her planner and Lara for her Powersheets.

Traditional goal-setting? It just didn’t work for me. I needed more than a shame-inducing piece of paper of New Year’s resolutions!

Here’s the exact method I use to achieve goals now, using a workaround method to sync up my Powersheets and Simplified Planner!

Y’all, between my ENFJ Myers-Briggs personality, open struggle with anxiety, and chosen career field, I’m wired to constantly consume media and information, which leads to rapid-fire stream of ideas in my head.

I can only imagine my fellow ladybosses — whether you own a business or just get after at work — feel the same way, too. We’re dreamers, innovators, and pioneers. Idea or Entrepreneur ADD is a thing.
