Here’s what I wish you knew...
Instead, I’m guessing you’re looking to partner with…
…Someone who really has your back, wants to know the inside-out of your business. Someone who genuinely cares for you and let’s face it…loves you, and someone who will hold your wildest dreams just as close to her heart as your own, because as a mentor she wants you to be seen and to succeed, BIG TIME!
That’s where I step into the picture.
This is my work as a Feminine Embodiment Business Mentor.
Hi, I’m Ainslie Young, a modern day mother to a little girl Xanthe (Zan-thee), an Aussie living in Singapore and a passionate Feminine Embodiment Business Mentor.
I help feminist leaders who are coaches, creatives and practitioners create successful and wildly pleasurable businesses without burning out and selling out their soul.
I have worked with 100+ business owners, across the globe through in person masterminds, workshops, retreats, online programs and my high touch, 1:1 private mentoring.
It’s important to mention that I tend to work with the same clients for many years. Some of my clients have been with me for over 3 years, because we do deep, impactful and transformational work.
And let’s face it – both you and your business, need solid support. And with full transparency, I usually form beautiful friendships with my clients and we love being a part of each other’s lives!
My Qualifications & Experiences
Here’s what got me ready to partner with you in creating a thriving and pleasure-filled business…
I have both an academic background – I have a Bachelor of Psychology (Hons) and a Master of Marketing – and have extensive corporate and entrepreneurial experience (in both product and service based businesses) crafting and executing traditional and digital marketing strategies and working in business development and communications.
What this means for you is that I have over a decade’s worth of marketing and business experience that will allow us to create an effective (and unique to you) marketing strategy that will include getting crystal clear on your ideal client, craft signature services that will sell, write compelling copy that connects to your readers’ hearts, design and execute soulful launch campaigns...and so much more.
Oh and did I mention, I do this through a feminist marketing lens? You’ll learn feminist marketing strategies + tools that will ensure your values are at the forefront of your business and no more icky, old school masculine marketing strategies)
I’m also a certified Life Coach with the Beautiful You Coaching Academy as well as being a certified Feminine Embodiment Coach with the School of Embodied Arts and a graduate of the School of Visibility.
What this means for you is that I have deep training and hands on mentoring experience that will help us combine both your beautiful mind AND wisdom-filled body to liberate any tension that is holding you back in life and business and to get to the heart of any visibility blocks. (THIS is my secret sauce!).
The feminine embodiment model I’ve been taught (and I’m incredibly passionate about), starts with DEPTH first, (your body/the feminine) and DIRECTION second, (your head/strategy and action).
I’ve invested a phenomenal amount of time, energy and money into cultivating my skills and knowledge (you can see all the details here) and I genuinely want to share it all with you, so we can fast track your own growth and business success.
My Personal Stories Snapshot
I’m the first person in my family to graduate from University and to hold a Masters degree. My parents worked extremely hard to ensure my sister and I went to University and earned our degrees.
Speaking of my sister…Meredith and I started our own designer handbag label in 2012 alongside our full time careers in marketing and PR/Communications. With no business, fashion or manufacturing experience we successfully launched our own line of handcrafted leather handbags and accessories, received national press coverage and ran the business for 3 years. It was a WILD ride with LOTS of valuable learning…including how to reframe failure + a lesson in continually building resilience.
In 2014 my husband and I moved from Sydney to the dynamic city of Hong Kong, which became our beautiful home for over 4 years. This city, and most importantly the people hold a very special place in my heart. Hong Kong is where I had the chance to truly be me and explore my multi-passionate nature.
In 2016 my life changed big time – I discovered I was pregnant (read my Angry Letter to the Stork) and without trying to sound dramatic, I nearly lost my life giving birth to my daughter. Without me knowing, this was the start of my embodiment journey, the rising of my feminist attitude and the deepening of my spiritual awakening.
I’ve always been a chronic perfectionist, a drastically driven woman and a hyper high-achiever (who was reluctant to receive help), which led to multiple instances of adrenal fatigue and ultimately burn out. (My Fertile Void posts explain more – start here ). And that’s where my need to learn how to work smarter, rather than harder came in.
But thank god, in 2018 I found my mentor Jenna Ward, (thanks to a dear friend), and I completed the Feminine Embodiment Coaching certification. What started out as a personal journey led to an epic discovery = the tools and strategies I was learning would be the secret weapon to my business success (without burning out) and something I could teach and share with my clients. AND THIS IS MY GLORIOUS WORK = Business & Marketing Strategy + Feminine Embodiment!
Also in 2018, my little family relocated to Singapore and the challenges of another life transition started all over again! But all I can say is thank god for my personal embodiment work + my business and clients….because my body of work and partnering with my clients, truly fuels me!
