Amber Ludwig-Vilhauer, Authentic Leader Academy

The Authentic Leader Academy is an online business training center for entrepreneurs who are tired of spending thousands of dollars on courses and coaches that focus on WHAT to do, but leave you wondering HOW to do it.

I’ve brought together a special online community of people who really want to make a difference in the world and don’t have huge budgets (…but they do have huge hearts!)

My deepest passion is to help you live your potential, love your work and create the long-term financial freedom to live life fully. The more people I help the more I feel alive, on purpose and grateful.

Coaching requests are pouring in every day from entrepreneurs just like you who want to know exactly what to do to achieve their dreams and goals.

Since I am unable to work with everyone on a 1-1 capacity due to time restraints, I have developed a one-of-a-kind training center for entrepreneurs just like you! ALA is an opportunity to get all of the step-by-step training you need to be unstoppable. Yes, unstoppable. I’ve proven that with our existing members alone.

From building your online platform to marketing, monetizing and growing your business … this is your solution to it all!

The Academy is currently full, but we’re re-opening registration early 2016. Get notified once we open by subscribing in the opt-in box below.

You have a deep passion inside to help others. You want to build an incredible business online that you love because you want freedom, flexibility, creativity and impact in your day-to-day life.

You know that if you could just find the right guidance, you would be unstoppable.

You’ve bought into programs in the past and they usually left you confused, behind and disappointed. Regardless, you keep trying because you know the answers are out there, but if you could just find the right partner to help you, wow, would it make all the difference in the world…

Here’s What’s Wrong with
Most Courses and Coaches Today…

Sure, it’s easy for a guru to say, “You need to launch an affiliate program,” or “Start a Facebook page,” or “Just start creating videos” …. And you even get fired UP to do it!

But then, inevitably, when you’re all alone trying to figure out HOW to implement their advice, what happens…

Does this sound familiar?

  • “Shoot, I know I need an affiliate program, but what did that mean again? What program should I use… there are so many options! What marketing materials should I create? How do I get an affiliate link?!” (maddening.)
  • “Yes, start a Facebook page. I can do this, I can do this. Wait, what category should I go in? What’s a cover photo? Where do I just make a post? How do people find me? What is the difference between my personal page and business page?!” (aahhhhh.)
  • “Ok, videos. I’m really scared to do this. I don’t want to do this. I’m going to look like an idiot. What camera should I use? Wait, what should I say?! Oh the lighting is awful. I need help!!!!” (yep, nightmare.)

I hear these cries for help ALL day long because I am a service provider. I am the girl you go to when you’ve hit your limit – you’ve wasted days – on trying to figure out “how” all on your own.

I started my company NGNG Enterprises (standing for No Guts No Glory) back in 2007. We will build your website, help you with marketing and copywriting, help you get better rankings on Google, help you with social media, launches and SO much more. I have a team of 12 and we are “your get-it-done team.”

We’ve built more than 350 websites, have worked with more than 500 authors (not to mention all of the speakers and coaches across six continents…) so trust me when I say, I know what works online and what doesn’t.

When you’ve had as much experience as I have in the online world, it becomes really clear what is missing for entrepreneurs…

What’s missing is step-by-step training on HOW to execute your marketing ideas.

That is why I developed this website. It’s to help you build that incredible business, give you the support you crave and offer you a partner to celebrate your wins with.

I felt a responsibility to create a website where I could dump all of my knowledge of what works online so inspired messengers – just like you – could get the “how to” training you need, ANY TIME you need it, without wasting money that should be spent on growing your business.

This IS the Training Solution You’ve Been Hoping For (I’ll Prove It!)

The Authentic Leader Academy (ALA) is a superabundance of easy-to-digest, focused strategy & training videos … designed for authentic entrepreneurs who are looking for straight answers on the strategies necessary to start and grow a profitable online business.

Once you become a member, you will have FOREVER ACCESS to ALL VIDEOS in this ultimate training center, designed so you never have to guess what to do next OR how to do it.

  • You’ll find face-to-cam videos where I give you the exact strategies I’ve proven works in my own business (and for all of the hundreds of business I’ve supported in the past nine years!)
  • Most importantly, you’ll find screencast videos where I walk you through step-by-step how to implement these strategies! (cue: priceless!)

Tired of not seeing a total solution for entrepreneurs who want to create a successful online business, Amber compiled her 9 years of intensive online research and experience in growing a multi-six-figure business to offer you the chance she never had … a chance to get targeted advice from a successful entrepreneur on just about any topic that comes up when running and marketing a business online.

Real Feedback from Real ALA Members

  • I can not speak highly enough of my experience with Amber and the Authentic Leadership Academy. The value I have received is priceless! Not only has the content of the videos helped me tremendously to advance my business, but there is also the ongoing opportunity to replay the videos at my leisure 24/7! Thank you, Amber for creating the Authentic Leadership Academy….I SO appreciate your continued support throughout and the diverse value the Facebook group has to offer as well.


  • My Klout score is now 61! Your awesome video [inside the Academy] helped me boost it up! xoxoox


  • Lisa-Hilleren-150x150Amber puts her heart and soul into her endeavors, the result being the delivery of products and services that far exceed her clients’ expectations. Amber is an outstanding business coach, especially for clients looking to build/grow their on-line presence. She’s one of very few trainers I know who can take complex topics, break them down into manageable bites, and present them in an easily digestible manner. If you’re looking for a dynamic team-player who delivers superior results and an exceptional customer experience, Amber is the woman to hire. I highly recommend her and will personally be using her services again and again for my future projects!

(This could be you…!)

  • pamelazimmerAmber is a true professional expert. She is authentic, knowledgeable, and extremely supportive and inspiring. In every area of my business that she has helped me, I have seen success. I highly recommend Amber for any of your online business needs! Amber… you are authentic, you are honest, you are real and you care. Plus, you are actually DOING what you teach the rest of us how to do, and you show us that, without holding back. You are fun, engaging, exciting, inspiring, encouraging… I could go on and on… I love the way you are not afraid to “go after it” and how easy you make it all look – it comes naturally to you (at least that’s the feeling I get when listening or watching you – I know you work your butt off, but you’re never nervous about what you put out there. you have confidence). Bottom line: authentic and caring.


  • kate mukerThere is one word that describes Amber – ROCKSTAR. Amber is extremely knowledgeable, organized and always goes the extra mile. I would not hesitate to recommend Amber for Online Business Development.


  • If I could describe Amber in one word, it would simply be AWESOME! Well, maybe EXTRAORDINARY! Then again, it could be AMAZING! Regardless of the word, it has been such a pleasure working with Amber. She taught me a great deal about Internet Marketing, Blogging and creating Web sites, all while remaining focused on every detail. What seemed daunting and scary to me, Amber made creative and fun.


  • If you are considering Amber for any project, large or small, personal or business, I can save you time, effort and money by assuring you SHE is YOUR go-to-gal! AND… in ways you haven’t even thought of yet! Dynamic! Fun! Highly motivated and thunderously committed to YOUR success! Do it for your business. Do it to for your family. Do it for your peace of mind. Just do it… work with her.
