*We're kind of kickass

I'm Ashleigh. I've been writing copy for over ten years.  And now I have a team*. We can't wait to meet you!

Ashleigh Rennie

Director and Copywriter

I love language. I love words. I love stories. And I believe that YOU are your business's power. Let's make you the most empowered, kickass, and profitable business owner that you can be. Then let's craft copy that meets your audience exactly where they are, and attracts them to you like superfans to a Beatles concert. How? With a combination of science and art. Data mining and storytelling. It's the most exciting and ROI-guaranteed copy out there. How do we connect with your prospect? How do we access their needs, wants, desires? And then how do we craft copy that converts around that? These are the questions that make my blood pump faster.

Lauryn Summerley, Digital Business Manager, Project Coordinator, Graphic Designer

What's harder than rugby and football, solving a Rubick's cube, and getting a cat to love you unconditionally? Ballet.

How do I know this? Because I was a professional ballet dancer for thirteen years. Passion, hard work, and dedication are a part of my DNA. A series of injuries (and life in general) changed my direction, and I decided to use those strengths in another field.

So, here I am! I help time-strapped entrepreneurs manage their online teams so that they can shift focus to the profit-generating work in their business. I also create and manage project plans from start to finish, turning ideas into reality, increasing profit, and scalability. I take an in-depth look at the operations and systems of your business, and that means you can get more things done in less time.

Don't let your business become your boss - let me help you claim back your time to concentrate on what you do best!

Kieran Rennie

"The CV? The background? It’s as irrelevant as a referee at a wrestling match. I’ve spent time writing for and performing on the stage, I’ve been a regional radio Morning Drive Host and I’ve written, recorded, and released an original music album. I’m a car freak and have held the title of editor on two automotive trade publications. I am a photographer, videographer and wannabee stenographer. There’s a pigeon hole out there somewhere that I’m trying to fit into."

Bella, the Dog

I'm a middle-aged South African dog who now lives in London. This makes me an international traveling hound of mystery. I have many talents that include, but are not limited to:

  • Seeking out the foulest smelling things in any area I find myself, mainly to eat and roll around in

  • Demolishing a large piece of raw hide in 3 days

  • Barking at birds because, even though they are harmless, they pose a major threat to the house and they must be DESTROYED

  • Seeking out squirrels, but then being confounded by them.

  • Providing the business with licks, dog-speak and general moral support
