Ashley remembers the first time she was told she was too ambitious for a blonde. She was 19 years old and was working with a professor to figure out her career goals. It became her driving challenge to succeed, and she's never looked back. Ever since that day, Ashley's failed in several businesses and side gigs. She created a blog called AshleyBrownWriting.com that no one read for the first 7 years. After the 7th year- it took off and amassed 100,000 views in 6 months. From there she had enough business to quit her full time job and create her own copywriting company called Ashley Brown Strategy. Now she can write as much as she wants. When she's not hanging out in Greenville, South Carolina- she's probably hiking the mountains of Montreat or mentoring South Carolina women as they start their own businesses. Her message to women is - be ambitious, and know your value.
