Hi! I’m Amy C Tilley
Hi! I’m Amy C. Tilley . . . a Website & Brand Designer, Business Consultant and founder of Connections at the Cross™️ magazine and online community.
My faith in Jesus is the heart of everything I do and who I am. I’m passionate about helping determined women business owners gain clarity, plan effectively and design a profitable business and brand - all while keeping their family, faith and goals in focus.Are you ready?
I know that you may be feeling stuck, overwhelmed and thinking that none of this is possible for you... but let me snap you out of thinking that way right now. That is a big 'ole lie. It IS possible! And I can't wait to show you how to make it all happen.
Because just like many of you, my most important roles here on this side of Heaven as a child of God are as a wife and as a mom. I'm married to the love of my life and I’m a homeschooling / hockey mom to two amazing teen-age kiddos that keep me on my toes. My mission is to help YOU cultivate a profitable business by creating a beautiful brand that conveys your unique personality and message so you can make intentional connections with those you want to serve. I want you to get excited to go to work on Mondays . . . and everyday!
PS... I promise that my love of good books, red shoes, fresh flowers, and belly laughs will add a lot of FUN and SMILES while we work together.
I'm SO excited and happy that you have connected with me and look forward to learning more about you, too.
I’M AUTHENTIC, AND I BRING THE JOY. What you see is what you get with me. I want to design a brand that speaks to the heart of your potential clients. I want to guide and encourage you to keep going and keep growing when you feel stuck and unsure. Pssst… you know I’ll work tirelessly to help you up-level your business AND be your biggest cheerleader, too. And by goodness, we’re going to HAVE FUN DOING IT! Because life’s too short not to enjoy the journey!
I’M HIGHLY SKILLED. Brand designing, creating logos and graphics and beautifying websites is my jam!

Can you tell I love learning?
I’M EXPERIENCED - IN LIFE AND IN BUSINESS. I know you’re way too polite to ask my age, but I’m into my 40’s now, which means I’ve got plenty of life experience under my belt. I’ve also created FOUR prior successful businesses, in FOUR different industries, before beginning this current venture. I’ve got the perspective you need to know how to play the long game and make intentional connections which is what you’ve got to do to create continued success within your business.
I’M BALANCED. Yes, I’m a business owner. AND I’m a wife AND a mom AND a follower of Jesus. I understand that while your business is a huge part of your life, you don’t desire to spend every waking minute on it. Instead, you’re looking to build a prosperous business that allows you to be generous AND plenty of flexibility for your health, hobbies, and of course your family, and friends. I’ve created this balanced lifestyle for myself, and I know how to help you get it, too.
8 Crazy, Fun and Interesting Personal Facts About Me!
I always prayed to find and marry a kind, fun and loving man and God answered my prayers over 16+ years ago. My husband is smart, handsome, funny, kind and so loving. He’s even better than the man I prayed for! Thank you, Jesus!
I always wanted to be a mom and God has blessed me with two amazing, funny, creative and smart kiddos that I get to hug, homeschool and hang out with each day. (We also have two in Heaven that we can’t wait to hug someday.) They are only young for a little while and I’m so blessed that I get to do life with them each day.
I love to travel and I’ve been to 43 of the 50 states. My top five states and places to visit (so far) are;
* Wyoming (Cheyenne, Jackson Hole)
* Hawaii (Maui, Kauai)
* North Carolina (Asheville, OBX)
* Texas (Austin, San Antonio)
* New York (Adirondacks, Finger Lakes Region)
My dream career while growing up was to become a travel agent but God had different plans. Right before my senior year I decided to became a Radiation Therapist to help, treat and encourage people through their cancer treatments. It has been an amazing career and journey for the last 20+ years.
I absolutely hate the cold, being cold, anything cold (even cold water!). But with both our kiddos playing ice hockey, and while living in WNY, from September through March/April, you can find me sitting in the ice rink, wrapped in a blanket, wearing my big mittens, cheering them on!
I’ve been on HGTV, Tiny House Hunters. It was so much crazy fun. We filmed for 5 days, (66 hours) and the show was only 22 minutes long. It was such a great experience. So let me know if you ever see my funny face on your TV screen ;)
My favorite hobbies are PLANNING in my Happy Planner®️, and hanging out on the porch of our family lake house, reading, designing, and learning new things. That is why being a business consultant and designer is my jam!
You may have guessed it . . . I’m a 7 (joyful person!) on the Enneagram! I know that through ALL the ups and downs in life, God is ALWAYS right beside me. He is my Rock, my Redeemer and my Savior. And He can be yours today, too!
Wow! What a journey!
Now that I’ve told you some crazy, fun and interesting facts about me, let me tell you a little about my entrepreneurial journey.
From my days selling hand-made bracelets in the schoolyard at 10 years old, to creating my first successful business at age 23, my next at 29, another at 36, and now in my 40's as a website & brand designer, business consultant, and magazine publisher, I’ve had an entrepreneurial spirit from the time I can remember!
And what's cool is that these businesses were across varied industries... which taught me that it's not only about what kind of business you want to build, but it's about using your strengths, your skills and your experience to find your “sweet spot.” And for me, that sweet spot is as a brand designer and business consultant/coach.
As a busy wife and mom, I completely understand the challenges that come with growing a business AND having a family. Maintaining a flexible and balanced schedule so I can be organized and productive (in business AND life!) is important so I don’t end up losing my marbles, my family and my relationship with Christ. So…
If you’re feeling lost in a sea of confusion, I’m here to toss you a life raft to shore!
I know you’re the type of woman who’s so generous and giving that you’re probably putting your own needs, desires and passions last on the list. You know you want to create a beautiful brand to grow your business and you’re ready to take ACTion, but you’re concerned about how much time it will take and how it will affect your family’s finances.
You don’t have much margin for trial and error,
and you’re ready to do things RIGHT the first time!
You know that investing wisely upfront and delegating those frustrating tasks will pay dividends down the road.
...you’ve come to the right place!
My special superpower is helping women like YOU along the bumpy “business branding highway” so you can create a beautiful brand that clearly represents who you are and speaks to the heart of the clients you want to serve - all while keeping your family, faith and goals in focus.
