Cierra is a strategic thinker who enjoys applying her creative vision to build and maintain best business practices.

After college, she spent over a decade in Operations Management developing her leadership, team-building, and customer service skills. She later spent time as the owner/operator of a licensed home daycare and has also worked as a freelance content creator, copywriter, and administrative professional. Operational efficiency backed by a data-driven business strategy is her "happy place".

Residing in Michigan, Cierra has a strong drive to serve others and enjoys spending as much quality time as possible with her husband and four children.

Alexis is the Book Launch Account Manager and Project Management Operations here at NGNG and Project Manager of Operations. She first started in freelance social media and project support after wanting a break from the corporate world. Her driving force was finding a job that allowed her to make a bigger impact on a more personal level. Her time spent in sales and recruiting helped her understand people and fine-tune the skills she found herself most drawn to. Though an avid world traveler, Alexis currently spends most of her time in Seattle and loves exploring the beauty of the PNW.

Megan is a Colorado native and an avid traveler. Most of her career has been in the world of customer service, but she has found a passion for all aspects of social media marketing and business development. In 2020, she realized the rapid progression of the online landscape, so she took her passions to the next level and began freelancing at a digital marketing company as a virtual assistant.

Since then, she’s supported multiple divisions of NGNG. She directed the Relationship Management department, which specialized in nurturing the influencer/author relationships and setting the influencers up for success to promote the book launch on behalf of the author.

In 2021, she found her sweet spot as the Senior Account Manager for the Web Division, where she had the opportunity to showcase her excellent communication and organizational skills as she served as the liaison between the client and the design team. To the present date, she has helped hundreds of clients develop beautiful websites for themselves and their companies. She is one of the most senior employees at the company.

With a unique career background in wealth management, fundraising, wellness and business development, Lauren Meers unites her entrepreneur spirit with a dedicated work ethic. A self-proclaimed "habit fanatic,” Lauren is solution-focused and strives to create elevated experiences with clients and colleagues she serves. Lauren has a keen ear for storytelling, big vision and a passion for supporting people with their purpose.

She loves helping others connect the dots and find creative strengths. Lauren lives on the Central Coast of California and loves exploring local trails and boogie boarding at the beach. When she’s not adventuring outside, you can find her cooking, on her yoga mat or teaching barre class.

Joni-Leigh has been working as a graphic designer, illustrator and fine artist since 2003, and has been freelancing full time since 2009. After joining Elance in 2010, she started working with clients internationally and through this platform established a wonderful working relationship with NGNG Enterprises. Within 1 year, her profile was ranked within their top 100 providers worldwide, and within 2 years, the top 7. Right now, her focus lies in the full spectrum of branding design for start-ups and entrepreneurs including logo design, stationery, social media headers, banners, ads, brochures, flyers and other marketing collateral. She also takes on illustration commissions in a variety of media, and exhibits her artwork from time to time within her home country of South Africa and abroad.

Brett Kelly is a full-stack developer, server administrator, and digital marketing juggernaut. He started learning Python in 2001 and wrote a best-selling book in 2010. It all went haywire after that.

At NGNG, he helps the crackerjack team make sure our clients' sites and servers are in lean, fighting shape.  

When he's not hammering on a keyboard, you can usually find Brett trying to make his family laugh, rooting for his beloved LA Galaxy, reading a book, or attempting to cook something well beyond his meager culinary skill level. Often as not, there's a bourbon (neat) nearby.

Ron specializes in developing wordpress websites. The challenge and experience is what drives her passion to deliver great design and unmatched quality. She assures each and every project will produce 100% satisfying results. She believes that developing a good rapport and regular communication is very important throughout her projects since it ensures the project is completed to the specific needs of each individual client. Ron is not just a web designer, she has also earned her Master Life Coach and NLP Practitioner certificates.

Brandon is a Canadian web designer and graphic artist that enjoys tackling anything from print to web. He puts a focus on understanding the client's brand and then applies it consistently wherever they leave their mark. He enjoys all styles of design and is always looking to expand his horizons. Brandon stays creative outside of work by writing and performing music (when there isn't a pandemic).

A proud Chicagoan who now hangs his hat in Mexico. Manny is a member of the web development team here at NGNG.

Whether it be exploring new design possibilities or helping strengthen brand presence over long-term relationships; he enjoys taking an innovative, outside-the-box approach to creative challenges.

Manny has been designing since 2001, is passionate about continued learning, and is a dedicated life-long student. In his free time, you can find him traveling around Mexico on his motorcycle with friends or with his wife Raquel Elisa and their two sons Elián and Luca.

Courtney is a Chicago-based Brand and Social Media Manager at NGNG Enterprises. Drawing upon her extensive background in social media management, content creation, and consulting, over a decade of creative and copywriting experience, and unique understanding of the publishing industry from her work as an author, Courtney knows how to make magic and get things done. Her specialty? Melding striking visuals and dynamic copy to create social media content that entices, informs, and delights.

Courtney is inspired by collaborating with like-minded creatives to achieve a shared goal and prides herself on being relentless in her pursuit of bringing big ideas to life. In her free time, she enjoys befriending local booksellers and baristas, drooling over brand design, and napping with her senior rescue cat, Bertie.

Miguel is a Portuguese website designer that strives to deliver meaningful outcomes through his designs. He puts the user experience at the heart of every project, resulting in unique and impactful web experiences.

When he's not behind the screen, you can find him lifting weights or firmly rejecting pineapple toppings on his pizza.

Clare Cebricos, aka The Versatile VA, has worked as a Virtual Assistant for more than 7 years. She has experience in content writing, email management, social media management, video editing, graphic design, and web design/management.

Before working from home as a Virtual Assistant, she worked in the BPO industry for 6 years as a Technical Support Representative (phone/chat/email) for Kodak and IT Help Desk for Nokia and Coca-Cola.

Clare believes passionately in giving back and making a difference, for it gives her a sense of purpose.

When she’s not working, she spends most of her time with her husband, son, and parrot, Cali.

Shannon is a front-end-focused software and WordPress developer who loves keeping sites tidy and secure. She’s written code for industry giants like Microsoft and Viacom, but prefers helping clients who bring more personal messages and business goals to the (digital) table. With well over a decade of experience in web development, Shannon maintains the security and longevity of all sites on NGNG’s monthly website care plans in addition to providing technical problem-solving and support for any current projects. Offline she enjoys large dogs, tea, forests, and spending more time away from screens than in front of them.
My name is Blaine Bowers and I am a Visual Designer. I was born in Oklahoma, lived in Colorado Springs from ages 3 to 9 then moved to Wichita Falls, Texas in 1991 where I remained until my move to Austin nearly 10 years ago. I moved to Austin with my son, Aton in 2013. I went to OSU in Okmulgee, Oklahoma and got my degree in Multimedia Technology where I graduated in 2003. From there I’ve held some sort of design job for the last 19+ years, working mostly at design agencies. I enjoy working through the design process to build efficient and effective products that tell client stories and reach their goals. I also love biking, hiking, typography, photography, making things with my hands, 3D technologies like 3D printing and laser engraving, and most things outside!

We Believe

We work with some of the most heart-centered, innovative people on the planet. Those who really want to course-correct humanity socially, economically, and environmentally. NGNG is the engine to power their voice, growth and impact.

When these authors, speakers, or entrepreneurs become serious about wanting to make a difference… they often turn to online business professionals to design their marketing plan and build their online platform in order to capture the attention of those they are compelled to serve.

However… what you will discover over time is:
digital automation (as it is taught mainstream today) is the biggest threat to your business and impact.

Consumers experience information overload, decision-fatigue, and end up feeling like a herd of moo’ing cows being walked through a funnel.

Your prospects deserve better.

To win the attention war online, you must learn how to authentically develop a meaningful connection with each individual who learns about your work to scale your influence and impact. This is the belief upon which all of NGNG’s strategy, systems, and services are created.

Book Launches

The biggest mistakes authors make is not giving themselves enough time to launch, not hiring an expert strategist with a proven track record, and overall short-changing themselves and not seeing what’s really possible with their book. AmberV is the Launch Director behind many dozens of #1 bestselling books, including those for Lisa Nichols, Mike Michalowicz, Les Brown, John Lee Dumas, and Martin Lindstrom.


We have proven that by thinking through your customer journey first, we can build a great website that not only has a design you can be proud of, but is built with strategy to attract in qualified buyers who are primed to buy from you. (And don’t worry, it’s not going to cost you an arm and a leg!) If you want to win the attention war online, you'll need a website that you can be proud of AND gets you results.


If you struggle with not having a clear marketing plan, trying to do it all yourself, the pains of technology and changing trends, trying to find good help, needing more leads, and certainly never having enough time to ‘do it all’… then our proven marketing operation is for you (a blend of content marketing, podcasting and live streaming). We train your team how to get ALL of your weekly marketing done for you!


Having a stellar platform and marketing operation is a HUGE improvement for most business owners, but if you don’t have a strategic and profitable monetization model, as well as a plan for effectively scaling your business, you won’t realize your company’s full potential. We focus on revolutionizing the way our clients scale their business in a way that is profitable, builds a lasting connection with customers, and leaves the business owner feeling deeply fulfilled.
