The Creative CEO: Turn your creativity into profit

The ultimate course to help you launch or level-up your creative business in just 30 days.

 

It’s time to start acting like the BOSS of your own business... because, let's face, you are! 

Get ready to step boldly into more freedom and less burn out by effectively selling a craft you’ve already mastered!

Tell me if this sounds familiar...

 

  • You’re a creative at heart who knows deep down you could use your skills to build a biz you’re crazy proud of.

  • You’d love to earn more money without working 8,000 hours a week.

  • When people see your baked goods or handmade products, they say, “This is AMAZING!” But running a business? How do you even start?

  • You’re balancing a lot, be it a full-time job or a gang of kiddos, and would love to give your craft a go but feel overwhelmed at the thought of “building a business.”

  • Marketing yourself and your biz makes you cringe...you’ve lost count of the IG stories you’ve recorded and immediately deleted!

sigh... feeling seen?.png

What if instead…

  • You had a steady income coming in consistently each month to support yourself and your fam.

  • You knew how to chase your business goals with actionable strategies that actually work. 

  • You felt confident putting yourself out there to market your biz, sans icky car salesman vibes!

  • You knew how to attract and engage with a community of supporters who not only buy your offerings, but genuinely want to see you succeed!

Hey there friend, I’m Ashley Greeno!

AKA “The Cookie Lady”

 

I'm a home baker and cookie decorator-turned-coach who teaches bakers and other creatives how to make a consistent income selling their craft. I started a movement called Ten Thousand Cookies with the (wild) goal of selling 10,000 cookies to put money towards our family’s adoption. And, as is often the case with entrepreneurship, it turned into something so much bigger than I ever expected. 

 

Make no mistake, though: I’m not a business unicorn. I took the long path to building a successful small business. From my tiny Etsy shop in 2009 to selling baked goods at farmers markets to hand lettered greeting cards, I’ve always had a creative “side hustle.” I learned a little more about running a business with each project, but it took me nearly a decade to pull all the pieces together and feel confident enough to quit my corporate job. 

 

Now, I’m handing over the roadmap to you, so you can cut years off your business timeline and start earning more faster. You already have the skills and talent to create something amazing; you just need tools, strategies, and mindset shifts to start turning your creativity into income (translation: more freedom, joy, and authenticity for you and your family!). 

Ready to take messy action towards your dreams? 

Yesss girl! I’ve got just the thing for you...
