What's the AKademy?

The AKademy is a 12 week online course designed by Abbey Kyhl to take your business to a totally new level.

About Abbey Kyhl

In my life, I have been accused more than once of “mothering” people. Holding their hands, giving them directions on what to do and how to get where they wanted to go. I consider this one of my greatest strengths, because here is the great thing about mothers. Mothers don’t leave you on your own, they don’t leave you behind, and they don’t stop supporting you. That is exactly my goal with The AKademy.

The AKademy is like nothing I have ever done before. I have had so many people come to my workshops and I always wonder what happens when they go home with all the information that I have given them. I wonder if they took everything I gave them, but only implemented a few things. I wondered if they were unsure of where to start and how to integrate the tools they needed to be successful. I wonder if they had enough self-motivation to do the work and make it all happen.

I don’t think that any of my past or current students don’t have the skills or abilities to make something amazing happen for themselves. I think it comes back to more about not knowing where to start, and not knowing how to stay on track. We all need support and guidance and we all need accountability. That is where The AKademy comes in. I have broken it down step-by-step and made it into achievable steps. I truly believe we can all achieve success and I know that if you follow this system that you will have the tools you need to chase your biggest dreams!

I struggled with time management and taking too long to do business related things. I had no plan for my business and felt like it was all over the place. My family was being put on the back burner so I had enough time to do all my work. Teach me your ways. Abbey seemed […]

I used to be so much more scattered and forgetful. My biggest frustration prior to meeting Abbey was that I would have post it notes everywhere and still forget things. I was a disorganized mess and I felt like I never had time for my kids which was part of the core reasons I started […]

Before attending the workshop I was a struggling photographer. I was one of those people who said, “I do photography… like on the side, and I love it!” But afterwards and since then, I proudly tell people, “I’m a professional photographer!” and I live that way! I still work part time while in school but […]

I needed direction to make my goals a reality. I was shooting just about everything, but trying to start specializing in weddings which is what  I was really wanting to specialize in. I had done multiple inspirational shoots to help boost my brand and just kept thinking it would be taking off soon, but it […]

Before the workshop with Abbey, I was searching for more specific advice from someone who understood my local market and demographic. I was in my second year of shooting weddings and I had invested a lot of money into my photography education already. But truth be told, most of the larger workshops I had attended […]

There was so much that I was going through before taking Abbey’s workshop. I felt like I wasn’t getting the right kind of momentum with my business. I took on EVERYTHING. I had a lack of inspiration and huge doubts in my ability to be a creative business owner. I put my personal life on […]

What's in the AKademy?

  • Step-By-Step Course to Help You Accomplish Business Tasks In A Thought Out Manner

    With The AKademy, I have taken all the topics and issues that you are facing and need to have a strategic plan on, and put it into a step-by-step course that you can work through alongside the other students. This method makes each step manageable, reasonable, and attainable. As we build upon the steps you will get closer and closer to putting together all the elements of being successful.
  • Strategic System to Speed Up Success And Completion

    By working alongside myself and the other students, you are going to save yourself hours and hours of frustration and obstacles. I have done all the back end work for you, all you have to do is implement my system in your business and start to move forward. By trusting in me and my experience, you will be able to propel your business forward and bypass so many of the problems that creative entrepreneurs face.
  • Built In Accountability to Keep You On Course

    Each week different parts of the course will be released, along with homework and actionable items to keep you on track. One of the biggest obstacles, I have encountered in running your own business, is the difficulty of staying on task. With The AKademy, I will help you learn to be accountable and keep you on the path to success.
  • Tools To Teach You To Integrate Self-Motivation In The Future

    By learning to keep myself accountable, I opened the door to accomplish more than I had ever dreamed. I am going to teach you all my tips and tricks to generate and sustain self-motivation moving forward so you can avoid burnout and grow your business in the way you want to.
  • Realistic Attainable Goals

    Reasonable tasks in reasonable time is one of my favorite methods. Through The AKademy, you will be given work you can handle, goals you can reach, and milestones you can measure. It won't be an overnight, easy process but it also won't be unachievable. I promise it will elevate you in a way you hadn't planned. I truly believe everyone can be successful and that everyone has what it takes and I am going to do everything I can to make sure you can do that as well.
  • Actions To Help You Avoid Burnout

    Being overwhelmed and frustrated is one of the quickest roads to burnout. Having a system that you can be successful at will help eliminate that burnout. From my task management system, to the way I set up my schedule, I will help you get on the right track to feeling empowered and successful instead of feeling like giving up.
  • Time Management & Organization

    I believe that we are all in business for the people we love. So how can we love that business if all it does is take us away from our people. I have worked hard to develop a system to show you how I took back my life and my time and now work when my people don’t need me. Having the best of both worlds is what keeps me going further and further with my goals and I am excited to share all of that with you.
  • Graduations Bonuses

    Once you complete The Akademy, I will share with you some additional bonuses including my further in-depth course on Mastering Marketing and my guide on how to achieve Social Media Success.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • When does the AKademy Start?

    The AKademy will begin Summer 2017.
  • Do I get access to everything all at once?

    In order to ensure your success, the course will be unveiled in a timely manner through the steps. Giving you all the information at once would be overwhelming and undoubtedly lead to frustration. I have spent countless hours laying everything out to be accomplishable and manageable, so it will be rolled out as we move from step to step.
  • How long does the course run?

    The course will run a series of 12 working weeks.
  • Can I learn at my own speed?

    I have found that the best way to learn is to have a course and a deadline. You will be able to go back and re-visit steps of the course, but hope that you will make it your goal to keep up with the rest of the students.
  • What If I Have Questions?

    Weekly Q&A
    You will be able to ask me any questions you have in our weekly Q&A live webinars. These will generally last between 1-2 hours, so there will be plenty of time to ask questions.

    Answer Archives
    Any questions that I receive will be added to the Answer Archives so that you can access them later if you need to. My number one goal is for you to be successful, and I never want you to feel like you aren’t getting the information that you need.

    Course Step Comments
    Each course step, will have a place for you to make comments and for other students to give their insight as well so that you can have not only my input but peer-to-peer insight as well.

  • Do I get any one-on-one time with Abbey?

    There will be points in the course where you will send information to Abbey and receive back personal feedback. Abbey is always available as well for one-on-one coaching sessions for particular parts that you may be struggling with.
  • Do I have any interaction with other students?

    Absolutely! The entire course is designed for you to have lots of interaction with the other students so that you can create friends and support systems that will help you build your business through The AKademy and much longer!
  • Is AKademy really right for me?

    I know what you are thinking. This seems so intense! But keep in mind this, it took me five years to really get my business off the ground and be able to live the life I had dreamed of. Think of it this way, if you attended college, how long would it take for you to obtain a degree? Rome wasn’t built in a day, and you can’t build a thriving successful business in a day either.

    Lucky for you, I am giving you everything you need to accomplish in twelve weeks what took me much longer. I can guarantee that if you work the course, take the time needed to give it your all, and take my advice on building your business, you are going to accomplish something amazing in your business and life!
