Again I find myself singing the praises of the folks over at FinerFinance101! This time it was there business plan development and execution that wins them my accolades!
Ashly Bauserman, President of FinerFinance101 met with me to do some of what I will call “vision~neering”, like Engineering! She listened to my story, my concerns, my fears, uncertainties and doubts. She shaped my rambling comments into Vision and Mission statements, developed a business plan, created a logo (she called it a ‘brand’!), business cards, letterhead, and outlined an opening email campaign. In sort, she made me feel brilliant and look well organized!
My business is off and running and I can focus on what I do best because I have a structurally sound foundation in which to build upon, and for that I thank Ashly and the team at FinerFinance101!!

I was very impressed from the first conversation with Ashly. The level of experience, thought and care that went into my project was amazing! Ashly and her team delivered everything she promised plus more. I would definitely come back to her for any future projects and recommend them to anyone looking for web designers.

Ashly Bauserman (Finerfinance101), found out that I was attempting to start my own embroidery business (Dees Master Crafts). She immediately was interested in sharing her financial knowledge and services with me. We met and from day one I felt very comfortable talking to, and sharing personal information with her. What I found very interesting about Ashly was that she did not push her business on me, she listened to my needs and offered a wide range of assistance to help get me started. In the short time that I have known her she has provided me with a full business development consultation, developed an excellent website for me, designed business cards and pamphlets and a wide range of other services. She is reasonably priced, efficient and an over all wonderful person to work with. I look forward to the continuous services of (Finerfinance101) with Ashly, as my business needs expand.

Ashly Bauserman came to A2W as a Business Development consultant. She walked into an entirely new industry (Public Relations) and used her marketing and sales experience and creativity to be able to quickly help us grow our business by first understanding the key selling points and then fashioning it into new marketing appeals. Her efforts along with FF101 have produced results as we’ve reached a large number of new potential clients and a number of those have already asked for proposals to do business. They consistently think very well, take well founded initiative and tirelessly works to achieve our goals. They have very strong business intuition and an even stronger track record which has proven very fruitful for us at A2W.

Finer Finance 101 started working with my organization, Quality Business Coaching, back in 2015. They very quickly assessed our needs for business development and began moving forward to improve our marketing. The results have been excellent. Moreover, they are pleasant to work with and always leaning forward to solve problems. I cannot recommend them highly enough.

I found my experience with Ashly to be incredibly helpful. I've never had the time or patience to really sit down and go over my finances and create a budget, so working with Ashly to sort all of that out was really great. She was able to give me a good breakdown on where my money was going and how to rate my spending priorities. I've found it really helpful to have a guideline to work off of when I am determining how much money to put aside for future goals, such as travel, and for paying down credit card debt. Ashly has made me more aware of when I am over spending, and as a whole I have become more conscious of my general finance situation.

Ashly made combining our finances and creating a shared budget seem manageable and unintimidating. She walked us through every step of the process and sent us home with the tools we'd need to maintain our spending habits (or re-calculate our budgets if anything about our situation changed). We had so many questions about mortgages, buying a home, 401Ks, taxes, car loans, and more. Ashly was endlessly patient and shared her extensive expertise. Ashly made us feel at ease by simplifying topics we'd been dreading learning more about. There is no ulterior motive or sale here - Ashly just wants to educate people about how to manage their finances! We walked away happier, more confident, and more aware of the future path that was right for us. We'd recommend Ashly to ANYONE who wants help budgeting or has questions about how to manage their finances.

As a teacher, I was always afraid to show my budget to someone, to have somebody judge me for my income was terrifying. I shrugged at the idea of someone knowing how deeply I had gotten into debt. When I met with Ashly for my financial consultation, she immediately made me feel comfortable. I never once felt judged, she taught me how to design a budget that would eliminate debt and create savings. All her energy was dedicated towards making me financially savvy and I am proud to say that my husband and I were able to pay for our wedding through savings and I am only a year away from being debt free (from $20000 in credit card debt). Thank you Ashly for breaking my debt cycle!

The very first time we asked Ms. Bauserman about a few minor financial questions, she took the initiative and called us directly. She not only explained the questions we had for her, she also took her time to go in depth and gave us a list of things to get ready for our first meeting with her. During our first and second meeting with Ms. Bauserman she concentrated genuinely and professionally on how best to help us with our plans. She identified areas in which we could make simple changes that would have a major impact on our long term finances. She made us aware of details of our financial planning in both short and long terms. She even went further to show us the impact that some of our past financial decisions would have in the future. What was really amazing about Ms. Bauserman was her sense of care. She not only explained to us things in a very simple laymens terms, she also took her time to teach us things so that we would be able to do them on our own in the future. This feature is rare in this fast paced business world. We would highly recommend Ms. Bauserman as a very genuine, personable and professional business consultant.

My consultation with Ashly was very insightful and valuable. I can say with confidence that I am now on the road towards financial stability and success. Before, I didn't know where to even begin when creating a budget for myself. The thought of living with financial boundaries kept me away from coming up with a financial plan or budget. With Ashly's tips, I am now able to save for things that I want to accomplish later in life while still maintaining a desirable lifestyle.
Not only is she very clear, thorough and realistic, she is very sincere and kind as well. I can attest that Ashly is truly passionate about helping others in their pursuit of financial stability and success. I reached out to her for guidance and within a few days, she replied to meet up. She sat with me for two hours and provided her financial wisdom at no charge.
Ashly will take time to get to know you as a person, your values, spending habits, and goals in order to come up with a realistic and achievable plan that works for you.

I was referred to Ashly by a friend who knew I wanted to speak with an advisor about my finances but was also nervous and intimidated by the process. Ashly immediately made me feel comfortable, put all of my worries of being judged at ease, and discussed my finances in a way I was able to truly understand. We discussed my lifestyle, finances, short and long-term goals, and then created a plan specifically tailored to my life. Every recommendation not only made sense, it was realistic and doable. I have made the recommended adjustments and have already noticed a difference. Ashly is incredibly professional, patient, and approachable. Since meeting Ashly, I am more knowledgeable and in control of my finances, which is incredibly empowering. I truly wish I had met Ashly sooner! I have recommended Ashly to several friends and will continue to recommend her to anyone who has questions and/or needs assistance with their finances.
