Hi, my name is Ashley. I’m an altruistic and unorthodox nature-loving entrepreneur. I’ve started three businesses and currently run one. My goal in life is simple: change the world. Throughout my life, I’ve been presented with learning opportunities in the form of failure and bullying. They taught me something valuable – I love learning and helping.

And now… after graduating college and traveling the world… we’re here. Goal in progress – step one to a ten-step plan to make the world a better place. I’ve been made stronger by abuse and bullying and wiser by education and experience. However, I’m still just as determined, altruistic, and unorthodox as ever. My trials resulted in passion and I love to share my lessons learned with others.

Topics I Cover

Future of Work

Future of Work

The future of work is remote and flexible. We should not have to work 40, 50, or 60 hour work weeks in cities we don’t love for too little pay. While the change over will take time, remote work and contracting is the future of work. As a remote worker and remote business owner myself, I employ and work in the remote work field.

Young Entrepreneurship

Young Entrepreneurship

Sometimes it can be hard to find information about starting a business young. If you want to start a business as your first job out of college, you might be told that’s a bad idea. I don’t think so. That’s why I started three successful businesses under the age of 25. My post-college career is as a business owner.

Female Leadership

Female Leadership

Being a female business owner and entreprenuer still has it’s drawbacks in 2020. Women are told they aren’t as good as men, called bossy, and talked down to. Having children can cause you to be seen as uncommitted. Not having children can have you seen as too career-focused. Let’s talk turn the stigma around.

Environmental Awareness

Environmental Awareness

Let’s turn “leave no trace” into a part of culture. Better yet – let’s change our mindset to “leave the Earth better than you found it.” Climate change or not, no one likes to see plastic bags litter the ocean. Keep our planet clean – selfish reasons or wholesome ones. Businesses aren’t exempt either – the more hands (and money) the better.

Marketing

Marketing

Marketing is vital to any business’s chances of success. Whether looking to TV commercials or social media marketing, your business has to tell the world it’s there somehow. It’s an ever-changing game being taken over my contractors, agencies, and even robots. Let’s talk about the past, present, and future trends businesses can use to grow.

Overcoming Strife

Overcoming Strife

While no one wants to go through hardships, they always come out stronger in the end. In fact, hardships that you endure in life can teach you to be a better business leader. Sometimes, it can be hard to see how abuse can make you a better leader; however, with a little insperation and movtivation you could be the next big (wo)man in business.
