Meet the Founder

Hey there! I’m Ashley Sutton.

With a whole lot of passion, vision and a few dollars for a plane ticket, I headed for the bright lights of New York City immediately after graduation, to accept an internship at a major beauty company. As a born-and-raised Texas girl, I’m incredibly proud and in awe to have experienced working at some of the world’s top Fortune 500 companies. Ultimately, it’s those experiences that inspired me to write Overtime Is SO Over, and to begin building a career platform that I can only hope helps spark change in the ways we work day to day.

One cozy NYC night, I was flipping through my old “idea” book from college, where I’d written down dreams of starting a line of stationery products. As I looked all around my apartment, I noticed it was covered with greeting cards and thank you notes. That’s when it hit me…I REALLY LOVE cards and stationery. There is just something about receiving and sending physical cards that warms the soul, especially in such a connected digital world. I did, however, want to make sure I stayed true to my personal brand mission, which is always to empower and inspire people along in their careers and entrepreneurial endeavors.

Then, HUSTLE & HOPE Greeting Cards was born. Why not sell cool greeting cards AND help people! Talk about win-win. I hope you all enjoy this labor of love. Share with friends, family, colleagues and the like.

P.S. I had to show you my crazy apartment covered in thank you notes, birthday cards, holidays cards, and more!
