Making Bank

From Burnt Out to

You wouldn't have recognized me in January 2020.  I was working as a contracted-employee for someone else’s 7-figure coach training company, busting my ass 60+ hours a week. To accept this position, I pressed pause on my own coaching business that I’d spent the last 5 years building. I had to watch what I said online, and shrink myself because I was representing someone else’s brand. Yet that time, energy and effort was not at all represented by my bank account.
 
My employer didn’t give AF that I was burning out, uninspired, and unable to access my creativity. Everything felt hard. Desperate to relaunch my biz, and on the edge of a MF meltdown, I left that company in February of 2020 and committed to (re)doing business differently.

This is how I unleashed my own potential

No bro BS. And absolutely no fucking hustle. 

play and pleasure first?

What could happen if I put

Eighteen months later…

🔥 I hit $115.8k cash in the first 8 months of 2021 while taking a week off every month during Shark Week to rest and take care of myself

🔥 I felt deeply connected and turned on to the work I’m doing in the world and having the impact reflected back to me in my clients’ success and in my bank account

🔥 I watched my clients get MASSIVE results, quit their 9-5’s, hit $18k cash months, and make more money than they ever have in their coaching businesses

ALL because I put pleasure and play first!

I scheduled it into my day like non-negotiable meetings. Baths, bike rides, massages, naps, snuggle time with the kitties, reading on the patio, or taking a random day off to go to the beach…

I asked myself a simple question

Pleasure first, always, in all ways.

Embracing the Uncertain

Ashley started her company,

In January of 2019 after years climbing the corporate ladder. She worked in sales at one of the largest social media companies in the world before burning out, and taking a 6 month sabbatical. 

While she was living that #buslife, she decided to commit to rebuilding her life through the process of deep, sustainable pleasure instead of the hustle and grind. Since then, she’s devoted her life and my business to helping people make the leap into entrepreneurship using pleasure based business strategies. Ashley’s made well over 6 figures in under 2 years using the exact same strategies she teaches clients. She is deeply committed to running, maintaining, and evolving a business and brand that prioritizes and operates equitably while actively doing the work to dismantle her privilege as a white, cis-gender, able - bodied woman both on a personal and professional level.

Outside business, Ashley dabbles in casual nomadic living via Buss Lightyear (her shuttle bus turned RV), momming my 4 year old son, and getting in as much pleasure and joy as I can.

The  Mastermind is for you if:

You’re an established coach and have made some money in your business ($100 or $10k and beyond)

You’re thiiiiiis close to hitting your stride and know that all you need are the right people encouraging you and celebrating your progress along the way

Tired of feast to famine months and launches that didn’t exactly go as planned

Turned off by your business and turned on by the thought of doing better work, (and getting your clients better results)

Have a massive vision for where you want to take your business 

You see the results my clients are getting and can’t sit still thinking about what those results could do for your life

Our anti-racist and inclusive values align and you’re excited to be part of this amazing community of coaches who are changing the world


have never coached or mentored anyone and don’t have an understanding of basic coaching skills

Don’t thrive in a group setting

Are not open to receiving support from a Support Coach

Aren’t ready to give up the bro marketing way of doing things and love to hustle

Don’t like being in a mixed identity container and prefer to be with women and femmes only

Do not align with my anti-racist values or inclusive business strategies

Have a problem with bad language and the word FUCK

Questions?

Wait, Is this the same thing as the Wild Woman Mastermind?

YES! It was renamed to be more inclusive to all identities.

What *exactly* is a Mastermind? Is there a curriculum? 

No. In a mastermind, everyone is working on their own business at their own pace. They come to each call with a coaching request or something they’re working on and they use their time to workshop through the request. The benefit of the mastermind is that you’re around people who are at various stages of business and you have an opportunity to learn from them.

Being in a mastermind myself, I’ve had the opportunity to be around women who are doing what I want to be doing and they’re where I want to be. Watching them navigate their next level has helped me plan for the future and has also shown me what’s possible.

There comes a time in every business that consumption is no longer the problem. What I’ve noticed in the last 6 years in this industry is that people typically overinvest, and under implement. Our calls will be open coaching, and while there isn’t *technically* a curriculum or syllabus, most conversations will mirror topics I help my 1:1 clients with. Sales. Mindset. Pleasure. Program creation. Pricing. Money. Messaging. Marketing. Etc.

What made you decide to bring on Ashley as the support coach?

Short answer: She’s super fucking chill. Better answer: Ashley is very familiar with pleasure-based business and knows it isn’t about “pussy power.” She and I also have aligned values in terms of anti-racism and equity work. There’s no one I trust more to help me support you in this mastermind! 

Can you tell me more about the pods?

Yes! So, there are 2 pods. The women & femme pod meets on Tuesdays at 2pm EST, and the all gender identities pod meets Thursdays at noon EST. Each pod will be capped at 10 people, for a total of 20 members in the Mastermind. The reason for this is so Ashley and I are able to support everyone, hold space and give every member the attention they deserve.

Is this only for coaches?

While I largely serve coaches, this mastermind is also for service-based entrepreneurs who are ready to take their business to the next level. I help all of my clients refine their offers, get clear on their messaging, decondition from toxic productivity, and learn how to take exquisite care of themselves so they can deeply serve their clients. Some of my clients have also been therapists, hypnotherapists, hairstylists, consultants, web designers, authors, writers, and virtual assistants.

Six months is a major time commitment. Why so long?

I know that 6 months can sometimes feel like a big commitment. But if you’re in it to win it, 6 months is a drop in the bucket if it means you’re going to learn how to run a sustainable, pleasure-based business. In fact, most of my clients stay with me for 12 months or longer.

I’m into it but...how is this different from other programs I’ve tried?

I totally get it. If you’re anything like my mastermind alumni, you’re probably thinking you’ll just get caught up on all the other programs, courses and resources you’ve invested in. But the difference between those things, and this is that while we'll be covering strategy, funnels, messaging, and marketing, we'll also be diving deeply into mindset, confidence, and self-trust. The problem with most programs is that they're heavy on strategy and missing the UBER IMPORTANT mindset piece. Truth be told, you don’t need more courses or DIY programs, you need accountability and human support. Someone to guide you through the implementation of what you already know and who will help you fine-tune and customize your strategy.

What makes this investment different is 1) you decide that it’s going to be different and 2) I’m different.

I have been properly trained as a life and business coach and am ICF credentialed. I have gone through multiple ICF accredited coach training programs, am a Certified Mentor Coach and former coach trainer. I know how to coach, how to train and mentor coaches, and also how to hold people in their own shit and come out better, tougher, and stronger because of it. (And richer too!)


What does it mean to be certified as a coach?

By completing my coaching certification it means I have training in the core competencies such as creating client accountability, measuring success, active listening, and powerful questioning. I’ve gone through trainings on the code of ethics, and general life coaching. All of this training and experience help me hold space, get better results, and allow me to support my clients beyond their business. Life doesn’t stop when you’re launching. My general life coaching training allows me to support my clients through other life circumstances that come up too. 


The time of the calls doesn't really work for me.

Understandable. Don’t worry, all our calls are recorded so you can watch whenever it works best for you. Due to my location in Italy, this is the best time that works for me so that I can show up powerfully (and awake). Calls are 2 hours long but you don't have to be there the entire time. If you know you can’t make it live for the whole call, you can come for your 10-minute hot seat in the beginning and watch the replay later. There is SO MUCH value in listening to these calls at least once because you get to hear what others are struggling with and going through and can use their coaching requests to your advantage.

THIS IS A BIG INVESTMENT. HOW DO I KNOW IF THIS IS FOR ME?

Well, you’re here for a reason. If you’ve read through this long ass sales page and you’re at the FAQ part, then there’s something that’s calling you, because that’s serious fucking commitment right there. How do you usually make big decisions? How do you tune in to your intuition? Personally, I’m a 2/4 Projector who needs to sleep on decisions for a day or two. Get quiet. Journal on your desires and decide that you’re ready and make a decision from THAT place. Decide that you get to have this. Decide that you’re the kind of coach who invests in coaching and your business at this level. And then get signed up for The Mastermind. 

Can we talk coach-to-coach for a sec?

I remember being in your shoes. (Well, mine were flip flops) but I’ve been where you are right now. Joining a mastermind can feel like a HUGE financial risk. But personally, joining a mastermind is when the trajectory of my business changed. 

That's what I want!

A mastermind amplifies that shit. It’s about the accountability to power through when and if doubt creeps in. It’s a safe space for us to collectively heal sisterhood and sibling-hood wounds by being in a community; by being witnessed. This mastermind will open the doors for alliances, collaboration, and friendship you may not have had before.

And while no ethical coach can guarantee results, I can assure you we give you our all but the onus falls on you to take responsibility for your success. 

We have higher level conversations. We feed off the collective energy to stay inspired and skyrocket our growth. We unleash untapped potential, and become limitless.

Bottom line: this mastermind is fucking transformational.

You *do* know enough. You *are* qualified enough. Your clients really *get* results.
