It was..a year…to say the least.
And even though throughout the world, there was some bad. I wanted to create this post as a glimpse into some of the good that happened this year.
You know, focusing on the positive.
I started doing these posts as a way to track my progress over time. But this year’s feels a little different.
2021 was the first official year of business since the launch of Grow With Ash.
(And if you’re new here I’ve been around much longer than that, but the business you see, know and love today was born in the midst of 2020).
It’s crazy to think how much can change in a year. But, this was a pivotal year for me and Grow With Ash.
In 2021, I generated the most income in one year since I started my entrepreneurial journey. Getting to this point took time and a lot of figuring things out. I wouldn’t have been able to hit this milestone without my amazing clients and the other business owners I worked with to perfect my brand and craft (designers, coaches, strategists).

2021 was really the year to learn and unlearn a lot of things.— Ashley – Marketing Strategist (@growwithash) December 22, 2021
But the one thing I’m really grateful for are the people that I’ve been able to connect or work with to continue to nurture and grow Grow With Ash
Change in Services
I started the beginning of the year thinking I would offer specific services, and now as we close the year that’s not the case. Moving into 2022, there will only be four ways to work with me:
- 60-Minute Consultation
- Marketing Audit (with a bonus 90-Minute Strategy Session)
- The Marketing Strategy Program (Launching Soon)
- Private Coaching
It took a lot of trial and error to get to a list of services and offers that not only makes sense for my business model but also fulfill the needs of my clients. I want to continue to provide a high-quality and high-value experience without my clients feeling like they are another number in my roster. The structures and systems I have in place around these offers allow me to do just that.
On a personal note, 2021 was the year that I had my dream wedding and we purchased our first home. As you can imagine, our downtime has been filled with making memories, celebrating with family, and making our new house a home.
I went into 2021 expecting to feel the growing pains of being a “new” business. And I don’t see that feeling slowing down anytime soon. This is the start of a lot of amazing things for Grow With Ash, and 2021 was the year to lay the solid groundwork and foundation.
Looking ahead to 2022, I have some pretty ambitious goals. With ambition comes a bit of fear but that’s where the true growth happens. Have to be willing to take a few risks and go for it :). I already have the plans in place to help me work towards those goals. I’ll just take it one day at a time (And you should too!).
Next year, I plan to be more active on Youtube, Tik Tok, and Twitter. Definitely increasing video content! And I also plan to start sharing more lifestyle content so you can get a better glimpse into how I manage it all (first hand).
I’m excited for 2022 and hope you are too! Now’s a good time to join my email list so you can watch it all unfold.
