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 >

Reading Time: 5 Minutes April, you were a sun-dappled month of spring bustle, wheels-up jet-setting, and one big ‘ol launch (hence a lot of sleep). As for you May? Let’s roll. Each fresh start of the month, I’ll be telling you an update on my April goals, and including my May goals—this is also the subject of this week’s video […]

Powersheets Progress: April Recap & My May Goals

How I set goals for March with Powersheets by Ashlyn Carter copywriter at Ashlyn Writes

Reading Time: 4 Minutes February, you were cozy, full of rain showers, airports upon airports, plane row middle-seats, and sleep-in mornings. This first morning of March, I felt like a bear stretching post-hibernation, and ready to bounce towards a bit of a “hustle-ish” season after a few months of quieted winter days. 2017 wrapped with a big house move […]

Powersheets Progress: My February Recap + March Goals

goal setting with Powersheets and goal setting ideas from Ashlyn Carter of Ashlyn Writes

Reading Time: 5 Minutes I’ll be honest: January wasn’t what I expected. We went from a year of a big move, December of Wes being groomsman x2  (spring? x4. He’s popular.), slowing a business WAY down, and a December where I’m quite positive I worked nearly every day just to calm things down and do my part to move […]

Powersheets Progress: My January Recap + February Goals

Powersheets how to set goals with Ashlyn Carter of Ashlyn Writes

Reading Time: 4 Minutes Well, we did it: we moved, wrapped up the first full financial calendar year of the business (and 42 clients and a partridge in a pear tree) and celebrated Christmas—all within two weeks. Welcome home to the Carter Craftsman! 😉 ‘Twas a cardboard-scented, grace-filled holiday of realizing a lot of my to-do list and Powersheets […]

Powersheets Progress: My January Goals + NEW Video Series!

How to set goals and how to use Powersheets from Ashlyn Carter

Reading Time: 5 Minutes It’s pouring rain outside my little studio window, and—this is the first time I’m saying this publicly—this is my last week in the little ranch home we’ve lived in since we got married. The nostalgia’s wafting up like the Christmas Spirit flavor (is that the right word??) essential oils diffusing beside me, but I’m not […]

Ashlyn Carter of Ashlyn Writes and goal setting with Powersheets

Reading Time: 4 Minutes Ah, Powersheets—my favorite goal-setting resource ever. My best friend from growing up Becca texted me last week: “Powersheets. Yes or no, since I don’t have a business?” I immediately voice noted her: “Yes. This is the first resource or workbook I found that helped me look at the past year and see exactly what I […]

Powersheets Progress: My November Goals

Reading Time: 10 Minutes The past few week I spent getting the Ashlyn Writes Shop launched—the first big to-do in my Simplified Planner after August’s sabbatical—I wrote my heart out for two guides in the shop’s Stewardship Series: one for ordering your time & productivity and the other for ordering your goals & plans. Sabbatical and intense time putting […]

10 Things I Don’t Do Every Day (& Why I Think That’s Okay)

Reading Time: 4 Minutes Goal setting is one of my favorite ways to worship the Lord and steward my time, leaning into gifts He’s given me (and let’s be honest, without goals, I’d revert to my two speeds: (speed 1) 150 miles an hour working non-stop and exhausting myself and (speed 2) 8 hours of Netflix on British castles […]

Powersheets Progress: My August Goals

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. Fun July fact: Benjamin Franklin actually had […]

How I set goals: 60 before 30 by Ashlyn Carter at Ashlyn Writes

Reading Time: 4 Minutes 29, huh? As my fingers tap this keyboard, I’m in fact crossing off one of the things you’ll ready below … … so obviously, I’m a big believer in the “you’re 39% more likely to do any goal you write down” rule. On my birthday last year, I published 60 things I wanted to do […]
