I'M ASHLYN

I've been called the OG of copywriters for creatives, wink—I hook up women with words as a launch copywriter & brand strategist. Even while raking in more than 7-figures since I've been at it, I believe working from a place of rest (not hustle) IS possible—and I want the same for you.
 
Pour some bubbly (or du café, mais oui) and read the story >

Hopefully, this post explains the PRESENT thing I talk about on Instagram from time to time … and I’d love to know if you do this, too!

How I set goals using Powersheets by Lara Casey

Reading Time: 4 Minutes Each month, I tell you about the goals I’m setting for a few reasons–chiefly for (a) accountability and (b) because I used to HATE setting goals, until a certain someone (ahem, Lara Casey) wrote me about how she worked towards cultivating what matters with Powersheets, and a lightbulb clicked.

How I set goals using Powersheets by Lara Casey

Reading Time: 5 Minutes Cultivating a life by setting goals helps me mark time and quit the “one day I’ll ____” statements, and you all are always kind to let me share goal ideas each month.
