Exploring Life & Business with Ashawna Lane of Black Owned Content

Today we’d like to introduce you to Ashawna Lane.

Hi Ashawna, thanks for joining us today. We’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
After moving across the country from LA to ATL, I knew I had to get down to business fast. Atlanta is a very progressive city for a lot of reasons but more specifically for aspiring entrepreneurs and business owners. I knew that if I were to bring the same determination and go-getter mentality that I had in LA, I would do just fine living in Atlanta. In the six months that I’ve been here, I’ve established myself as a mobile notary and started my own content creation company. I hit the ground running when I arrived, and so far, my decisions have been paying off. I’m enjoying the city, meeting new people, and making connections with other like-minded individuals. I think Atlanta might be growing on me a little bit. I like it here.

I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey has been a fairly smooth road?
Surprisingly the road has not been as bad as I had anticipated. It hasn’t exactly been a walk in the park either, but I don’t like to focus on the obstacles in the road. I know that they’re only there to help me, and without them, there is no growth. I don’t run from them. I embrace them and do what I can to learn from them. Ultimately the obstacles we face today will be the stepping stones we laugh about tomorrow. I just like to keep an optimistic mindset.

Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your business?
Sure, my content marketing company is an online collective site aimed at discovering, promoting and cultivating entrepreneurship. I specialize in highlighting small business owners by giving them an opportunity to reach a larger audience. By creating engaging content about a particular business and publishing it through different online platforms, I provide assistance with generating exposure. By introducing a business to a larger marketplace leads to not only a growth in sales but also raises brand awareness among the public.

What sets my company apart from others is that with my professional background in sales and marketing, I understand how incorporating different techniques of marketing can help boost sales and build brand awareness. To date, my proudest accomplishment for my brand has been getting my business up on a billboard in Atlanta. Putting my face and my dream on display for hundreds of thousands to see has most definitely been one for the books! I would like readers to know that teamwork makes the dream work. My company provides a free service to business owners, entrepreneurs, and brands looking to maximize their opportunities. Through watering each other, we all grow. I’m here to serve as a vehicle that helps get people a little closer to where they want to be [in business.]

What was your favorite childhood memory?
A favorite childhood memory… wow. I have to dig in the crates for this one. One of my favorite childhood memories would have to be my family’s annual Palm Springs vacation. Every year we’d drive to Palm Springs from LA and stay the weekend in a lavish resort. As a child, I’d never seen hotels so fancy that they had multiple pools, restaurants, 5-star amenities and even lakes with actual boats in the lobby! Being introduced to things like that at a young age, I think, inspired me to dream bigger. I’d definitely have to say that’s one of my favorite childhood memories.
