For those of you that have known me for a while you will might known that for the past 11 years I’ve owned and run businesses. I’ve started them from scratch and built them all to thriving businesses in their category.
I am an entrepreneur at heart. It’s part of who I am and I love it. However, I did not love the tole that owning your own businesses took on my family. We worked lots of nights and weekends. We missed weddings and other important family events. I had to get babysitters way more than I’d like. There was constant fear that a client wouldn’t be happy, an employee would quit, or that we couldn’t get a project done in time. We were slaves to our own creation.
This summer we retired from all but one of our companies (Bash Booths is still one of my babies).
I thought I was done with business. I needed to find myself. I needed to get healthy. I was lonely and very stressed.
That’s why I decided to join an online fitness and clean eating accountability group (known as a CHallenge Group) with my friend and now coach, Shay.
I thought, “Well, if I tried out the coaching part as a hobby it would be fun, keep me more accountable to my fitness goals, and I could maybe make enough money to get a house cleaner once a month.”
I fell in love. The workouts, Shakeology, and the challenge groups MAJORLY changed my body, my health, my mental health. It actually even improved my marriage because I was doing something for myself that made me happy and because my body was happy and healthy, my mind was healthy and happy.
And then, against all my will- I was absolutely won over by the business opportunity. You see, I’m not a rookie at the business thing. I was burnt out, bitter, and skeptical. I couldn’t help myself though. Finally, right in front of me was the business opportunity that I wish I had found 10 years ago in college. An opportunity to let me flex all my creative muscles and business skills without having to handle orders and book keeping stuff… Leadership that encouraged me and was nothing but positive. I wasn’t anyone’s boss but yet I got to be part of a team of people that I could mentor and encourage.
I went from never working out because my businesses didn’t allow the time (so I told myself) to a business where I was rewarded if I worked out and lived the healthiest lifestyle I could.
I want so badly to share this with women like me:
- Women like the young Ashley that wanted to save the world, help people, do BIG things, but also build a foundation for a future family.
- Women like the new mom Ashley that find themselves resentful of having to work and leave their babies or ignore them so they can take business calls.
- Women like the present Ashley that have a lot to balance, want or need to work from home, but are at the stage where they are sick of sacrificing their present for the future.
-Women that know how to work hard and not give up but just need an avenue where they can apply themselves and have it pay off while living in the present.
