I’m going to be honest, I don’t know how to start this post, nor end it. Or how to graciously or gently share the news as this is certainly not an easy thing to do, but I’ve decided to retire both the Ashley Uhl Consulting blog, and the products that I offer. Now I know that this may come as a surprise, but over these last few months after great reflection on so many areas of life, I’ve decided to change focus, but just a bit. And still in a way that helps you.
A Personal Pivot
I’ve decided that rather than focusing my time on the blog and selling products and services to many, instead I’d like to work directly but still independently with maybe one or two design companies, helping them, to help their clients, you. Getting to know a business, and its people, in depth is a great passion of mine. Even when in a social setting, I’m a one on one person, rather than a big group person. I just love that time spent with people and businesses, getting to know the true inner workings of what makes them unique.
And so, it’s time for that to be reflected in my work as well. Who these companies are, and who I might work with, is yet to be known right now as that’s my next area of business to take care of. If you do know of a company in the design industry who is dedicated to the client experience and may want to become even more so however, I would greatly appreciate it if you let me know. Being able to bring a better client experience to the design industry is still what I’m all about, it’s just time for doing it in a different way.
Blog & Course Content Will Remain for 3 More Months
Now if you’re wondering if the course you bought, or the manual you purchased, or the content on this blog will be going away though, the answer is yes, but not right away. The blog and course sites will still be up for three more months, for both purchases, or to finish a course if you haven’t already.
You also always have the option to download the course, or manuals, and keep it on your own device, for lifetime access. That way, knowledge of how to provide an exceptional client experience will always be at your finger tips and you won’t be affected by the blog or product site no longer being available.
And with that, I guess it is time to say a final farewell, at least on this blog. Before I go though, I do want to thank you greatly for these years of loyalty and dedication, to me, to the blog, and to the belief in an exceptional client experience.
It’s been inspiring and life giving to know that there are so many of you out there, just as impassioned by treating your clients exceptionally well as I am. And it’s with that knowledge that I can happily move on to the next chapter, knowing that you all are out there, doing your best and working your hardest, to make sure that you and your clients, are having a fantastic time working together.
It doesn’t mean that it’s a perfect experience, and it doesn’t mean that it’s always easy, but you’re dedicated, and that’s what matters most. Clients know, and notice, when you’re genuinely trying to do what’s best for them and do right by them. And never doubt for a moment if the work that you do matters. It does. Creating a beautiful living space for someone holds an enormous amount of value, and when it’s done with systemized processes and genuine kindness, well, it’s practically magic.
So, once again, thank you for sharing your time, your stories, and your loyalty, and I hope that I’ve given back a tenth to you, of what you’ve given to me. And although this is a goodbye, at least from the blog, I hope it’s also, see you around.
With all my thanks and love,
