Permission to kick ass: Granted

Hitting the wall when it comes to growing your business? Let's blow that sucker up and get you to the next level, with more time and energy (and revenue) for yourself.

*steps on soapbox… taps mic*

Screw the “right” way to do business.

I said what I said.

I started Permission to Kick Ass because I spent YEARS messing around trying to find “ThE RiGhT PaTh” and following everyone else’s compass but my own.

No wonder I got so friggin' lost!

At the risk of making people who don’t like me folks clutch their pearls…

There is no right path.

ALL the offer tactics work. ALL the marketing strategies work. ALL the operational and productivity systems work.

The question is not, “What actually works?”

It’s, “What actually works... for ME?”

Here's what makes me want to set things on fire...

(and breaks my heart just a tiny bit)

I’m so tired of meeting brilliant entrepreneurs and stellar business people who think they’re getting everything “wrong” because a fad popular strategy didn’t work for them.

Have you ever found yourself thinking…

• I’ve been at this for years now… where are these “easy” clients people keep telling me about?

• If this is how hard I have to work when it’s just me, how is hiring another person going to help?

• I’m not good with managing people - why would I add that stress to my already overloaded plate?

Hiring people was supposed to get me back some time and space to work on the business… instead I’m doing my work AND theirs.

• I know there’s something not quite right about how I’m hiring/training people, but I’m not a “serious” enough business owner to worry about communications and management and team facilitation.

If you’re feeling like your business is kicking YOUR ass (instead of the other way around), you’re not alone.

In entrepreneurship (and online business especially), so much focus is put on processes and profits that we rarely talk about what makes it all work - the PEOPLE. 

“HiRe PEopLe,” they said.

“It’ll be fun, and you’ll buy back your time,” they said.

Except doing that WELL requires leadership and communications skills that you’re magically supposed to have, but no one’s actually taught you. 

Let’s change that shit.

Look… as we increasingly lean on AI and tech to grow, getting good at what I call, “Peopling” is going to become much more critical.

We’re already seeing folks spend hours perfecting an AI prompt while going for weeks without really talking to their clients or staff. 

And they wonder why it's hard to keep good people?

Imagine a business reality where…

You know exactly what to say to a contractor or employee when you need them to fix something, without any awkward feelings or second guessing.

You can put a stop to (or get paid for) extra work for that demanding client with a simple email that doesn’t destroy the working relationship.

Your team sticks with you for years, buying into the mission so fully that they’re bringing you ideas on how to make the business even better.

My name is Angie, and I’m on a mission to help entrepreneurs and creators like you build a stable, FUN business you actually enjoy. One that lets you live the ever-loving shit out of this one and only precious life.

People are the key to finding all the success you’re looking for. I’m including YOU (presumably a human person) in that statement by the way, because…

Your worth is not your work. 

It’s only part of who you are, and you don’t have to sacrifice everything you are in order to build the business you’re envisioning. 

So if all this speaks to you, pull up a chair, grab a beverage, and get cozy… I think you’re gonna like it here.

Thanks so much for helping me cut through my own BS and get the clarity I needed to knock this one out of the park. You have an amazing talent for giving expert advice, while also taking into account the whole "I'm a human with human stuff going on too" thing. I will definitely be booking a call again.
