I’m passionate about helping emerging and aspiring entrepreneurs access the tools they need to begin living their wildest business dreams.
Ashley is a longtime volunteer and friend to the center. She has willingly and enthusiastically lent her skills and expertise to NBIC, teaching classes, offering social media support and branding guidance to NBIC and our clients. For the past two years, Ashley has been a champion of our Global Entrepreneurship Week initiatives, managing the social media efforts and serving on a panel to expose high school students on what it takes to make the leap from education to entrepreneurship. In fact, Ashley has been so integral to our efforts in supporting our small business clients as they grow from “tiny acorns to mighty oaks” that we recently honored her efforts. During our annual stakeholder event, we honored Ashley as the Nashville Business Incubation Center’s 2015 Volunteer of the Year.
“I have gotten to know Ashley – first as a remarkable marketing and public relations professional, and later as an entrepreneur who is passionate about supporting other business owners. Perhaps what sets Ashley apart from other communication professionals and entrepreneurs is that she readily and happily makes herself available to those in need. She has led several social media marketing trainings for large groups of the business owners we serve at BAO. In many instances, Ashley has shown up to assist us with our routine trainings having only hours to prepare. I know that I can always depend on Ashley to not only show up, but to deliver outstanding content and technical assistance that other entrepreneurs find invaluable.”
“Ashley Northington is a firecracker. What does that mean? It means that she is always present, ready to perform, and sees the potential in all things great – and just at the right time, she can explode and make miracles happen.”
“Ashley is exceptional at what she does! I am in the education market, and most people don’t understand how that niche works. Ashley was able to help me with several strategies as it relates to branding and growing my business. She was straightforward, strategic, and serious about her work. She helped me understand how my personal brand can help grow business. She provided examples that were relevant to my industry, and specific to my business. I would highly recommend her as a consultant."
“Ashley Northington is a true thought leader in her industry. I think there are three things that cause her to stand out in a crowd of communication and business professionals: she is extremely thoughtful and incredibly thorough, she possesses a really strong attention to details; and she employs a 100% No Dropped Balls policy – she always follows up and holds people accountable. Because she only takes on projects about which she is passionate, she will ensure that nothing falls through the cracks.”
“My first experience with Ashley was through social media. She has stuck out as a subject matter expert in that field for length of time that I have known her. All the while being a social media guru, she has shown herself to be a connector of industry experts, which is something I value highly. She is a PR genius, but she serves to be so much more in the business world. Lofty praises to Ashley for what she does and how she does it.”
