Care to share your wisdom? I'd love to hear what you know.

Good Afternoon my friends! I need your wisdom…if you'd like to share it.

But first ... I need you to know something. I need you to know how much I appreciate all your help over the years. I couldn't have done this entrepreneur, country music songwriter, musician and single mama life without you ... I just couldn't have.

You saved my life. Each and everyone of you. Strangers came to my rescue on social media when I was alone and lost and for that I am eternally grateful. Your kind words and encouragement kept me alive. Your words gave me hope. 

When you purchased my designs, t-shirts and coffee cups from my online store…you gave me a job that I could do from home which was so important because I was a single mom for so long. I had to be there for my kids. I was so scared everyday that I couldn’t pay my rent but you tipped well when I sang online … you believed in me with your words and your actions. You sent me music equipment that you thought would help me on my journey. You sent clothes. You sent guitars. You sent letters. You surrounded me and lifted me up with the greatest love I have ever experienced. Somehow by the grace of God … I’ve been able to survive … and it’s ONLY because of you. 

With that said … I've learned over the years that seeking wise counsel before heading down a path or starting something new is vital for success.

I’ve got a lot on my plate and I’m trying to juggle it all and I just can’t do it by myself anymore. This thing has got too big for me to handle on my own. I’m doing my best not to let you down. I’m doing my best to honor your investment in me.

I need to let others handle some of the business tasks now. It’s in the best interest of business.

We need social media moderators and team leaders. We need a bookkeeper.  We need a booking agent. We need a business manager. We need to find good country songs that have been sitting on a shelf so we can record them.  We need someone who's experienced in sync licensing so I can spend the time doing what I do best…writing, singing the songs and finding strategic partners to grow the business.  We need vendors that make awesome products so we can add it to our online store. I’d like to support small businesses who make jewelry, lotions, soaps, paintings, wood crafts, leather, quilts and all kinds of other items. We need graphic artists.

I need your wisdom in this. I’ve been thinking about bringing on a few interns but I don’t have a lot of time to teach. I need experienced individuals who I can trust to handle business. I need strategic partners … professionals who share my values and who are committed to integrity. Partners who desire to win by doing the right thing.  

We’ve built a rock solid foundation together. The business has good bones and I believe when I sit down with folks and show them what we’ve built … they would be impressed and interested in partnering up.

Feel free to share your wisdom and insight on this. Do you have any trusted sources within your network that you’d be willing to make an introduction on my behalf?

Any shared wisdom would be greatly appreciated.

With Gratitude,

Ashley Dawn
