My purpose. My mission.
Hi, I am Naomi Ambrose. I help creative female entrepreneurs to launch their brand.
I’ve had people tell me they’re inspired by my decision to follow my dreams, and my ability to stay motivated in moments of career and life transitions, challenges and uncertainty. I finally decided to share a lot more of my insights and experience.
To that end, I write about the insights and knowledge I gained from events and opportunities that I’ve participated in during my music, singing, story-telling, life and career transition journey. I also write about insights that I gained from media content that I have consumed, as well as content that I’ve created and currently creating.
I’ll also say that my writing deals with the following topics:
- personal development
- personal branding
- building your personal brand
- time management
I also create visual and audio content where I share insights that I’ve gained from my music, entrepreneurial and story-telling journey.
My goal is to create insightful and meaningful content that you can apply toward achieving your personal and professional goals.
My story. My journey.
In October 2016, I started a blog to document my experience with participating in Christina Aguilera’s singing Masterclass vocal challenge. I also started the blog to share my experience toward achieving my singing, music and story-telling goals – with the hopes of inspiring others to achieve their own goals. You can read about my experience with the vocal challenge here.
I also created a “secret” Facebook group where I shared with some of my close family and friends of what I was doing behind the scenes of my journey. I eventually evolved my “secret” Facebook group into my Facebook page where I continue to share my journey – with the hopes of inspiring people like you.
In April 2017, I had the wonderful opportunity to perform at the Vancouver Sun Run. You can read about my experience at the Vancouver Sun Run here.
It is my goal that you too can find the freedom, tools and resources to live your life, to live your best, true, fulfilled life.
Let’s start your journey together!

What others say about me…
“I recently had the pleasure of learning from Naomi the importance of project management when it comes to producing a podcast. I knew going in that it wasn’t as simple as having a solid topic, suitable audio equipment, or compelling guests who know how to tell a story, but I didn’t know that I would be setting myself up to fail without a project plan in place to make it all come to life.
Naomi came prepared to take me through a process she has used before for her own podcast series. She shared her invaluable lessons learned and everything to be considered when: creating structure for an episode/series and how to develop the project scope and the corresponding work breakdown; what makes for engaging conversation, and why ‘filler’ words are ok; to have a jingle or not to have one – when it can be effective or ruin the mood; creative editing for storytelling, designing artwork and how to distribute and market your podcast to a wider audience.
Naomi is so kind and approachable and takes pleasure in supporting people to put out their best work. Her style of instruction is clear and easy to understand, but most importantly for me and the way I learn best, she made sure there was space to ask questions. I can’t thank Naomi enough for her time and expertise!“
