WHAT STUDENTS ARE SAYING


Chantel Pretty Hustle Nation

“This course is seriously BOMB.”

“This course is seriously BOMB. Your quality of CONTENT + KNOWLEDGE is by far next level, like I would position you WITH Jasmine Star…your SUPER SIMPLE examples paint a picture in my head so I can connect the dots. Brand with a Plan is EMPOWERING, easy to understand, and makes branding feel ACHIEVABLE! This is the most SIMPLE anyone has made branding, for me anyways. This course is something I will go over like once a year to RECAP + REGROUP. This stuff wont go out of style — legit.”

- Chantel Balch, CEO of Pretty Hustle Nation

“Goes deeper than B School.”

“Brand with a Plan is fabulous!!! I've done B School and taken a couple of other great marketing and social media courses. Brand with a Plan goes deeper into understanding your brand and your business, communicating your purpose and truth, and making a plan for getting where you want to go. Ashley connects you with that deeper part of your consciousness to get to the root of who you are and what you're here to do. She speaks English to those of us who aren't business-minded, and the workbooks are super helpful in putting things down into writing. The exercises helped me create a crystal clear picture of my business, even more so than the "Build Your Business" module I took in my coaching program. Whether starting or building your business, this course will be a beautiful addition for you!”

- Michele Madrigal, Life Coach & NLP Practitioner, Fiercely Fresh Life

“Makes figuring out your brand easy.”

“Brand with a Plan has the WOW factor. When I first opened the content and began the course, I was instantly drawn to it because of how well Ashley represented her own brand and I felt like she was personally talking to me. This program really makes figuring out your brand easy and straightforward, and Ashley's explanations of everything help a TON with finding clarity. The workbooks are awesome, clearly identified and laid out, and you always know what to expect — and since they're printable, you have the option to work through the course in chunks of time that work for you, even when you can't be at a computer.”

- Kristie Allbritten, Spoken For Photography

-Erin Pride, Dance Education Consultant

NatReynolds.png

“…For the longest time - literally years - I struggled to describe my brand….Then I met Ashley, and she helped me create a brand that is getting me my dream clients. Clients who come to me offering tacos and whiskey because they know thats what I love. I’ll just be over here, shouting Ashley from the rooftops, and booking my dream clients.”

FAQs


How long does it take to complete the course?

A few days, if you complete it all at once! This is NOT a surface-level course. You’re going deep into your brand, your business, your offers, your dream clients, your messaging, your website, your social media, your content, and your sales plan.

Each section has an “estimated time to complete,” so you can decide when you have time to tackle it. There’s also an OPTION to receive the content in sections each week via email.


How long will I have access?

You will have 100% lifetime access to the entire course, including any updates or additions I make. You’ll also receive a steep discount if I ever rebuild and relaunch a whole new version of the course on another platform. But even if that happens, you’ll still have complete access to this original course.


Is there a deadline for using my strategy call with you?

It’s up to you, but I encourage you to use it while going through the course, or after you’ve completed all the lessons… but you can use it anytime within a year of purchase!


How much VIDEO content will I get?

There are 16 videos, totaling about 2.5 hours of video content. They vary in length depending on the topics and content — but rest assured, if you watch everything, you’ll be a brand-building boss by the time I’m through with you!


Will this course teach me how to design my logo?

You’ll find a guided tutorial on creating your moodboard and visual style; a demo of brand design and color selection; and several resources to help you get started in purchasing, contracting, or DIY-ing your visual branding!


Is there a payment plan option?

Not at this time, but please send me a message if you are a registered 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, because I want to find a way to make it work for you!


Can I order printed copies of the worksheets?

Currently the worksheets are fillable PDFs with checkboxes and text fields to answer questions. You can fill them out right on your computer or iPad, or print the worksheets and take them to your fav coffee shop.


Is there a refund policy?

Yes, there is a 30-day refund period. If you complete the course and don’t feel it helped you, just send an email with your completed coursework within 30 days, and you’ll receive a refund.
