Shared this guy from the stage here at @CreativeatHeart yesterday—it’s true, right?⠀ .⠀ It’s OKAY to charge your worth for your work. In fact, you’d better be doing it, homeslice. That’s the very thing that may just enable you to keep DOING the art or craft you love so much, getting it into the hands of those who need it. That’s the very thing that doesn’t cheapen the industry and allows others to serve their people, too.⠀ .💕⠀ In-person events are the sweetest times for me to remember why I love my job: less screens, less typing, more hugging. Does anyone else with a mostly-online or behind-a-screen job need that regularly, too?!
I’m kinda freaking out (in a good way)—checking off my LAST work trip before all this 🤰🏼👶🏼happens in a few weeks! . Made it to the pines of North Carolina to speak at @CreativeatHeart conference and hug internet friends IRL ... this plane-loving girl opted for a roadtrip to control her own schedule a tiny bit more ... and by schedule I mean potty breaks and constant need for snacks + back stretches. 😂 . Here’s your invitation to play the game Wes & I have been playing lately: think this kid’s gonna be on time, late, or earlier than 12/19? (Definitely hoping it’s not ON Christmas Day! 😳🎄) | cred: @therefinedwoman
🥂🇺🇸EVERYONE deserves a glass because we made it through Election Day (well, almost)!! . I sure love voting ... pretty sure it’s one of my favorite feelings (a poli sci minor ~would~ say that), but boy was I glad to have early voting mischief managed since I’ve been holding down the bed with a 😷cold—but do you know what’s made it fun? Messaging with Y’ALL. From the chat box on copywritingforcreatives.ashlynwrites.com as we get ready to wrap up enrollment, to the overflowing inbox, I’ve loved getting to talk and serve you as you figure out if this program is for you. . Sooo ... it’s on again. I roped @wescarter9 into another, 2x a year, ask-us-anything sesh. We’ll hold it tomorrow night at 8 EST here in IG live, so post any business/marriage/copywriting questions below—let’s do this! | cred: @callielindsey
✨GIVEAWAY | HOW I SET GOALS 🙌🏽 | CLOSED! Congrats to @anna.w.adams, you are the winner! Please email email@example.com and we will get you ready to go with a fresh set from @cultivatewhatmatters. 😉 Thank you to everyone who entered! . Sometimes I wake up and feel like I *can’t* anything. You know that feeling? It’s all too much, there’s too much responsibility, too much pressure, too many ideas. But then I remember: all I gotta do is work the plan: the plan’s in place, all I need to do is show up & do TODAY’s tasks well. Steward TODAY’s hours well. Not tomorrow’s, not yesterday’s ... just today’s. Let tomorrow take care of itself. . @Powersheets have been my go-to since I got out of eating disorder recovery for grace-filled goal setting and annual dreaming. Soooo ... what would you say to a 2019 one-year planner + 183 pages to cling to as you uncover and live out your own intentional goals?!? The @CultivateWhatMatters teams wants to give YOU a WHOLE ONE-YEAR planner, and trust me, you’ll want this dose of monthly refreshment. I’m obsessed!! ✨ To enter, simply: 1️⃣ Like this post. 🎉 2️⃣ Follow @ashlynscarter! 📱 3️⃣ Tag three friends that encourage you to dream big! 🙌🏻🙋🏼 4️⃣BONUS ENTRY: Subscribe to the YouTube channel (http://ashlynwrites.com/youtube) . Good goal setting IS NOT a linear journey. Take it from the girl that used to be so perfectionistic about it she wound up in partial hospitalization—its can get super messy. But there IS a way to chase down dreams, grow into who you want to be, and leave unchecked boxes all along the way. 🙃PROMISE, ok? Good luck—I’ll announce a winner on Thursday!
I’d trade germs/sniffles with when it’s long-sleeve weather + cold season ANY time with you. 😍🍂🍁 . Sweet & slow Saturdays, football on, and chillin’ out max during these last few weekends as a fam of 2️⃣ before a busy week. But today? I’ll take the fireplace on + that hour of sleep. 😉 Wishing all y’all the same today!! 💕 | @lauraannewatson
WHAT A WEEK. 3.6k students inside online workshops, #CopywritingforCreatives doors open wide welcoming in new students 😍, and boy oh boy—who else is excited about that one hour of sleep we gain tomorrow night?! .🙋🏼♀️ S/o to my sweet husband for keeping me and this little kicking baby bump fed, and Swedish Fish/Sour Patch Kids for the sugar boosts. My tired mind is ready for the most difficult decision of the day to be “should I play Mariah Carey Christmas tunes yet or not.” 😉 . WELCOME INSIDE first wave of the fall 2018 CFC class! ... and f’real ... what’s your vote on Christmas tunes?!👇🏼🎄🤷🏼♀️
Jk jk ... we’ll keep him. 🎃👶🏼 Happy Halloween, y’all! 🐾 (and yes, every child that came to my door LEGIT thought I was giving away free puppies. 😂) #germanshepherdsofinstagram
✨TOMORROW IS A BIG DAY! ✨Do I get to hang out with you this week, or what!? . I’m going live 5 times this week to teach a fresh training, “How to Write Your Website Words”—probably one of my favorite weeks of the year is when I get to do this (even if I lose my voice every.single.time.). This is my last week live training chunk before maternity leave gets going, so grab your seat, print out your workbook, and pour up a fun drink—mine lately is kombucha in a champagne flute, because absolutely 100% why not. .🥂🍾 I’ll teach you how to get QUICKLY write your site, how to figure out what people want to hear from you, and more. Sign up with the link in my profile or http://ashlynwrites.com/masterclass. Let me know below if you’re coming this week so I can say hi! 👋🏻 👇🏼 (cred: @bluelocketphoto )
“When you have all you need, it’s better to build a longer table than a taller fence.” Driving home towards Atlanta tonight grateful for a day spent in my hometown, letting Baby Carter experience some of the village that raised me at the sweetest baby shower. .👶🏼 🍼 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Build a longer table. I see my mama and her friends doing that & I want to be marked as the same brand of hospitality—fancy cups mixed with laughing around the kitchen island one minute, sitting in a circle with 12 ladies praying over your baby the next. Build a longer table. Mission accepted. 😉 Now to ahem, *buy* the other chairs we need for ours in #thecartercraftsman .... 🤷🏼♀️ (Tap stories to see a few shower pics from today ... and how cute my bffs are) | cred: @abbygracephoto
🤗🤗🤗What!?! We’re about to hit 2k YouTube subscribers!!! I’m wondering this—are you on the list? (Pssst—spoiler alert, but I *think* it’s worth it, since I try to keep these to small
