Alicia is an innovator and evolutionary, and believes in bringing wellness into all aspects of life. She’s a certified yoga teacher and has been teaching and leading yoga lifestyle programs since 2008. She’s deeply inspired by Ayurveda and the practical application of yoga in business. She credits yoga for helping her discover who she is, her voice, confidence and creativity.

Alicia has been in the beauty and wellness industry for over 20 years, choosing brands with a mission of care, sustainability and connection to nature. Her study of journalism and marketing in college has been a common thread in her various leadership roles related to sales, marketing, branding, social media, business strategy and education. During the Covid-19 lockdown she and her friend, Ashley launched Exhale Wellness at Work to bring yoga-inspired wellness through a livestream format, for home and work.

Cali-girl at heart, Alicia moved to Colorado in the mid-90’s with her family. She currently lives in Denver, Colo with her rescue dog, Scout and occasional visits from her son, Tyler who’s away at UNC Greeley studying business and film.

Alexis is the Director of Culture here at NGNG and one of the Sr. Book Launch Coordinators. 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’s 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 in the digital marketing company as a virtual assistant.

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 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.

Services

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.

Websites

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.

Marketing

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!

Scale

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.
