I now focus on something bigger than myself, and think/act from a place of service.
I commit to the work in order to develop and further become the woman I want.
Prior to Ashley’s retreat in Portugal, life was hard, scary, overwhelming and confusing. I was at a big crossroads in my personal life and had some hard decisions to make.
This retreat and the wonderful community of women were exactly what I needed to move through difficulty. I love the friendships made, new opportunities and Ash’s guided meditations.
Thank you so much, Ash.
Krista Green: Strategic Systems Analyst | Denver, Colorado
What I loved most about the Portugal retreat was learning about myself and what is possible.
During the retreat I learned a lot about my fear and how it was showing up. I was able to see where I was hiding and wasting time. Very helpful indeed.
I loved how Ashley shows up with consistency, every single day. She showed up with a steady, motivating, unobtrusive and calm force every morning. This was probably the strongest detail contributing to my successful retreat. I also loved sharing this experience with the small group of women who worked really hard to get here, and to be kind and mindful. The energy and peaceful location only added to the beautiful experience.
Tanya McLean: Mother | Portland, Oregon
I now have tools to help me work through fear, and that’s really powerful.
Ashley and the Portugal retreat helped me realize that every woman struggles with the same things. I loved hearing the stories everyone shared and am in awe at how quickly these strangers became friends. I also loved learning about mindfulness and the importance of a daily practice.
I feel connected again to my life’s purpose and have one sentence to sum up what that is.
Thank you, Ashley and all the women.
Nina Gilmore | Hoehenkirchen-Siegertsbrunn, Germany
Working with Ashley helped me write one powerful and concise sentence to sum up my life’s purpose.
This has infused my life with significant energy as I’m spending less questioning who I am, and more giving to the world.
What I love about her work is the real community, support and connection between the women. Thank you, Ash!
Nicole Fitzhugh: Producer | Portland, Oregon
I’ve deepened my connection to who I really am, my spirit and something bigger than myself.
Prior to working with Ashley during her Portugal retreat, I was stuck and lost. There was a deep sense of hopelessness.
I’ve learned that I can’t do everything on my own, and I’m really ok with that.
One of my biggest breakthroughs is a connection back to something bigger, more powerful than my own mind. I loved learning about fear and am happy to now have tools to work through that emotion. Fear is not the truth, it’s just an emotion.
Ashley – this is the BEST retreat experience I’ve experienced. Thank you so much.
Renee Marin: Consultant | Executive | Santa Barbara, California
Ashley picks me up from where I am and guides me with her intuition.
I didn’t know what I wanted. I felt small and was living without impact.
I have learned that I am good enough and to give myself the emotional support I need.
My purpose is to be and serve myself and others as best I can in every moment.
I am now doing everything with love. The quality of my trainings have become better and I am clear on what I want.
I love to teach Yoga and have started to integrate more of what is important to me and my values.
Christina Hambach: Corporate Management, Yoga Teacher | Hessen, Germany
My mindset has shifted from victim to empowered.
Before Ashley’s Portugal retreat, I was in victim/self-pity mode because life had become constant and complex with health issues and pain.
The retreat, Ashley, and the other women helped me transform.
I now focus on what IS working, and have stopped complaining.
I believe my body can do a lot, and am committed to my daily practice more than ever.
I realize that I am my life’s purpose, and I can never lose this. I am so grateful.
Becky LeBright: Counselor, Coach | Seattle, Washington
I now have practical tools for personal development and manifesting new habits.
Ashley’s intuition and caring way of dealing with challenges helped me get out of feeling hopeless and depressed.
I even have a clear business idea which is inline with my deepest desire of “being the voice for those who don’t have one”.
Cornelia Schanda: Founder of Anthrapink, Mother | Forchheim, Germany
Prior to this retreat I was really confused and frustrated. I wanted to know more of myself but didn’t know how.
My biggest breakthroughs while on retreat in Portugal with Ashley:
I loved the location, badass meditations and having this retreat be a full sensory experience.
Michaela Kompernass | Essen, Germany
I loved the takeaways after every call!
I was less grounded, more chaotic, and unable to separate what I wanted with my impulsivity.
Working with Ashley, I was able to get very clear with my strengths, and became less anxious (when I’m not fired up with ideas!).
Now I am more calm around decisions and changes, with less judgement, and more consistency.
Sarah Dunn: Entrepreneur, Strategist | Founder of Big Picture Project | Co-Founder of Evident Impact | Denver, Colorado
Ashley’s intuition is powerful. She always has the right words and a helpful message.
Before I met Ashley, I was very lost and confused. I felt frozen and afraid.
Learning to pay attention to my emotions, take time for me, write for healing and be kind to myself and others has been life changing.
I laugh a lot more now and feel joy.
Meliza Alvarado: San Jose, Costa Rica
Ashley finds the right words, ideas and proposals to put me in motion.
I was uncertain about the next steps in life and business.
I learned how to cooperate with my fear, that self-care comes first and progress not perfection.
Working with Ashley helped me to connect to myself, gain clarity about what I really want, and more awareness in my daily life.
Ruth Konter-mannweiler: Entrepreneur | Neustadt, Germany
I loved making goals with Ashley and being held accountable.
I started working with Ashley because I was feeling aimless and discouraged with my prospects for my future.
Together, I discovered a career path that I am excited about, that the money story I have been telling myself all my life is not true and that I was subconsciously sabotaging relationships because I was afraid to voice what I really wanted.
Now I have the career I’m meant for and am in motion with a plan to get there!
Karen Goat: Future UX Designer | Portland, Oregon
After every single call I felt like I was on a rocket and that I could do anything I wanted.
What I loved about working with Ashley was her support, inspiration and enthusiasm which made me move at a much faster speed than I would have done alone.
Prior to working with Ashley, I felt overpowered by my fear and lack of self-belief. I was unsure how I was ever going to get on a path I felt passionate about and earn a good income.
Working with Ashley taught me how to tune into my fears and get to know them better and realize that I am worthy of good things.
Now I have started my mindful business coaching business. I have a daily morning writing ritual which keeps me grounded and a regular spiritual practice which keeps me connected.
Zoë Lavender: Mindful Business Coach | Zürich, Switzerland
What I loved about working with Ashley was her kindness, support and intuition.
Prior to working with Ashley, I felt lost and more than awful. My physical health was not good, and I was having a really hard time.
Working with her (and the other women), helped encourage me to follow-through with a decision to move to Amsterdam and start an entrepreneurial incubator program.
Also, I finally ended a toxic relationship that needed to end. I am enjoying my single life and actually feeling sexy again.
My health is slowly getting back on track too which is good.
What I loved about working with Ashley was her kindness, support and intuition. And meeting the other lovely women of the community.
Janina Münker: Designer | Munich, Germany
I feel more confident and empowered than ever.
Prior to working with Ashley, I felt lost and heavy with the decisions of what to do and how to be.
Through our work, I’ve reconnected to the joyful part of myself, and made the decision to let go of needless suffering. Now, I have the feeling of coming back home to myself.
I love her compassion, mindfulness and sharp intuition.
My friend recently said that he doesn’t want to die until he is dead. I have spent enough of my life not living. I want to live. I want to step towards fear. I want to break open, and I am ready to break open and let my light shine.
Jessica Castle: Graphic Designer | Wellington, New Zealand
What I love about working with Ashley is the fact that everything is tailored to you, so everything is said and created specific to YOU. With her, you have your own story and Ashley’s work supports that.
My three biggest breakthroughs working with Ashley:
I decided to make a big move to Portugal. Before working with Ashley, I was really unclear about this. I know what I want from my time in Portugal, and I think that wouldn’t have happened without listening to Ashley and the other women in my program. I am now clear that my time in Portugal is going to be a catalyst for my life’s path, and I’m really excited to go.
I am dreaming big and creating a life that’s different from my family and friends.
Also, I understand and know my intuition. I can choose to listen to it or ignore it, but it’s there.
And the third big breakthrough is that life always has my back. Always.
Giulia Panzeri: Yogi, Writer | Zurich, Switzerland
Prior to working with Ashley, I was in a toxic relationship to a man who didn’t respect me.
Working with her helped me tap into my own feminine energy and intuition, which helped me develop my sense of self-worth.
By working together, I found the courage to end that relationship, which opened up space for much healthier ones.
Also, Ashley helped me finally make a dream of moving from Germany to Portugal a reality.
She connected me with great women in Portugal so that I already have community waiting for me when I arrive. I am so happy.
Ashley also helped me get clear on how I could spend more time in Bali, and that’s what I’m doing. I’m working, writing and eating lots of durian fruit!
Victoria Rust: Blogger, Performer | Bali, Indonesia
I started working with Ashley because I was overworked and not happy. I had been at the same job for 15 years, and I had lost my sparkle.
Ashley helped me reconnect to the things that make me joyful. She taught me powerful tools that forever changed my life, like how to breathe deeper.
During our time, I got clear with what changes I needed to make so I could feel alive again. One of those changes was to leave my corporate job and I’m so happy I did.
I am building a life I love, and spending time with my animals which brings so much joy into my life.
Gabriele Lügger: Marketing Solopreneur | Germany
I was so stuck, uninspired and uncertain.
Many people in my life don’t share the same priorities, and are not supportive of the things I want for myself. This made it very difficult when it came time to make decisions about what I wanted for myself.
Working with Ashley gave me the support to realize that my dreams of working for myself and having the flexibility to travel and live overseas are actually possible.
She worked with me to get clear and to take the first steps to make it happen. I’ve since left my 9-5 job in Germany behind, moved to Australia, found a job, a new (old) love and am happily working on my dream!
Ashley’s ability to connect women all over the world is incredible. This was such a great support because, before working with her, I felt so alone in my journey.
Ashley has so many resources available such as her amazing Women.Becoming community, books, guest speakers and everything in between.
I’m very happy with how my life has changed.
Pia Bach: Melbourne, Australia
I love that I have found you and your community of heart-centered women… it feels like home.
One of the reasons that I was drawn to you is your vulnerability in sharing your process because I too operate from the heart.
It’s lovely (and I think of my favorite Audrey Hepburn when I say lovely…as in classy and beautiful) that you continue to show your soft under belly.
I want to continue my journey by being open, allowing grace and healing in. I love that I have found you and your tribe of heart-centered women.
I am better for knowing you and am SO fucking (I love that word) excited to see where we all end up.
I have big dreams and see where you are going as well as myself….it’s gonna be AMAZING and VERY heart-centered.
Megan Saint-Marie: Coach | Portland, Oregon
I now can choose how to do things instead of just responding/functioning as a very busy professional woman.
Running my own business as a medical doctor, health coach and yoga teacher means that I am busy. Before working with Ashley I was really unfocused and needing direction with what to do next.
Working with her helped confirm that I’m on the right path in life. This feels great! I’ve since cleared off my plate, what was too much, so I can focus on starting a family.
Ashley also helped me put into practice the idea that less is so much better than more.
I really enjoyed the great coaching atmosphere she created, as well as the right combination of casual talk, intuitive guidance, life and business coaching.
Janna Scharfenberg: Founder of In Good Health | Doctor, Yoga Teacher, Coach | Zurich, Switzerland
I now feel clear on the next steps I’m going to take to build my future.
Before working with Ashley, I was anxious and apt to bury my head in the sand about the things bothering me that I wasn’t addressing.
As a writer, researcher and oceanic diver, I now feel very clear about who I am and what I’m doing. I’ve since left the office life and am excited to go into the workforce solo.
I now know how I’m promoting myself and my work to make a dream come true which will make more money than I have in the past.
Of course I still feel anxious, but Ashley taught me tools that I can use any time to deal with the negative or limiting emotions that come up for me- I can guide myself through anxiety.
The tools and homework we came up with gave me something solid to fall back on, and real guidance for how to work through the blocks.
I love Ashley’s enthusiasm and intuitive nature!
Jenny Oliver: Researcher, Diver | New Zealand
Working with Ashley was one of the best things I’ve done with my life.
Here’s what happened during our time together:
– I got engaged!
– I am now pregnant and am SO happy!
– I feel free in my relationship with my fiancé
– I found my way out of a deep depression that lasted way too long
– I’ve discovered why I’m really here and what my mission in life is
– I now have a clear business idea which is in-line with my deepest desires and fulfilles my life’s purpose
– I learned practical tools for personal development
And here’s why I just loved working with Ashley:
– Her intuition is incredible!
– I got her fullest attention and she was very open to talk about what topic I need the most support with. This allowed for some of the biggest breakthroughs.
– Her loving and caring way of dealing with challenges
Thank you so much, Ash, you are an AMAZING coach! I can’t even believe this is my life!
Cornelia Reichel: Marketing expert, Entrepreuner | Germany
I’ve worked with Ashley for over a year and a half, and I can say I feel so liberated and able to tackle anything.
Prior to coaching with Ashley, I was working 60-hour work weeks for one of the largest athletic brands, and I was burnt out.
My health and wellness were compromised, and I wasn’t seeing my young daughter and husband very much. I spent a lot of time criticizing my thoughts and actions, and was not kind to myself. I was struggling on how to get out of the hard situation I was in for so long.
Since starting her coaching program, I have tackled so many of these significant challenges, and I feel extremely clear on what I want my life to look like. I am making it so.
My three biggest breakthroughs were on self-care, fear and transforming my limiting beliefs.
I never thought of myself as a “fearful” person, but during our conversations I came to realize that fear was getting in my way. I now know how to transform fear, and have clarity as to why fear is there. Once I have the clarity around the fear, it’s a lot easier to move past it!
Also, for a long time I put myself secondary to other people’s needs and priorities. After working with Ashley, I have changed my thinking and now truly understand it’s okay to ensure that my needs and priorities are met. It’s no longer “selfish” as I had been telling myself in the past. It feels good to prioritize my needs and self-care first.
I think the thing that I love most about this coaching experience is now I have TOOLS to help me tackle everyday challenges and roadblocks.
Working with Ashley gave me tools for my toolbox to help me change the way I approach a problem or a limiting belief. These tools will stick with me for the rest of my life to help me along the way.
The investment is absolutely positively worth it because it will change you in so many ways- you’ll become free to be who you really want to be.
I am truly grateful for the opportunity to work with her!
Patti Harrison: Founder of Marcher Studio | Portland, Oregon
I am who I always wanted to be.
Now I’m going after everything I want. EVERYTHING. And it’s because I have the confidence I need.
Before working with Ashley, I was living outside of my truest self. I wasn’t connected to who I was, and I hid from myself and the world. Now I feel completely FREE. I am living in integrity with myself, others and in all areas of my life.
Since working with you and the other women in the program:
I am living in integrity with myself for the first time in YEARS. Because of this, I am a better bodyworker and healing professional. THANK YOU! My fear is like a bad dream fading from my memory.
Dina Kudlicki: Founder of Vox Bodyworks | Denver, Colorado
I’ve gone from feeling stuck and treading water to moving forward with a clear plan of action.
Working with Ashley has helped me define my goals as a business woman, wife and in my personal and spiritual life.
I am becoming the woman I want to be in so many ways, and am working towards building a business so I can inspire other women in the male-dominated industry I work in.
I have made huge strides forward, and haven’t felt overwhelmed in the process. This is because of how Ashley coaches as she’s very grounded. I’ve always felt safe no matter what transformation I’m going through because she’s always there to hold my hand.
I have such a deep sense of confidence, and have made myself a priority.
To put it simply, Ashley helped me change my life so that I can help others change theirs. I feel so grateful to see my spark and how I’ll contribute to make things better.
I have so much respect for her, and can’t thank her enough for going on this journey with me.
Heather McCormick: Leadership Coach & Event Consultant | Denver, Colorado
Thank you for giving me the opportunity to get to know ME.
Before working with you I felt lost, insecure and was procrastinating on launching my photography business.
Working with Ashley helped me find clarity in who I am and how to trust myself. I also learned how to bring both the feminine and masculine into my leadership skills so that I can serve other women even more.
I am energized, ambitious and comfortable being seen for my work, and as a leader.
Ashley totally had my back and I felt so assured, seen and loved. And the women in the program are now friends and it’s such a great thing.
Annika Bielig Bussmann: Photographers & Founder of Pur Women | Portland, Oregon
I finally understand my purpose in life! I am my purpose, and I’ve never felt more confident about this.
Before working with Ashley I felt like I was standing in front of a closed door that was my future.
Ashley showed me who I am at the core, and I’ve had some tremendous realizations about life and how to deal with the ups and downs.
For the first time, I experienced what it’s like for women to support each other in such a kind way. This is so incredible! I wonder why we don’t do this all the time? Thank you for this, Ashley!
Thank you for a community of such great women. It has changed who I am at my core.
Julia Albers: Writer | Berlin, Germany
I wanted you to know just how much (so much!) our chat resonated with me and really validated how I am feeling at this moment.
Sometimes I think you are so inline with the energy of the world and you know how to say just the right thing at the right time. You have definitely chosen the right path! You are genius and such an inspiration.
Thank you, Ashley! You are truly amazing.
Marsja Jones: Portland, Oregon
You and your work are answering a prayer and meeting me exactly where I want to be met.
Thank you so much, Ashley! So blessed to have crossed paths with you~ thank you!!
Ari Divine: Healer at Ari Divine | Portland, Oregon
Ashley helped me eliminate the “I should do this” and do what is really right for me.
I felt really lost and confused.
Since working with Ashley, I have developed a sense of confidence and trust I’ve not experienced in life.
Ashley helped me put my own needs first which has been critical for my health and happiness.
As a executive assistant, I use the tools she taught us on a daily basis to help me stay focused on my goals for personal development, joy and wellness.
I’ve gained incredible perspective and have connected with some extraordinary women who remind me I’m not alone.
Camille Murray: Los Angeles, California
In a million years, I could not have predicted this day- the way I feel, the way I look, the power that I exude. Thank you, Ashley for helping me rediscover myself.
I was sad and really unhappy with who I was and how life looked. Before working with Ashley, I was hoping and praying life would shift.
Working with her helped shift my mindset in some tremendous ways. I now believe I can be a great mother and business woman, and that I will do what truly brings me joy in life. I also have the tools to make my physical, mental and emotional health a priority because Ashley helped me understand and transform what was getting in the way of this.
Since graduating her program, I started my own business which combines a decade of corporate experience plus the expertise of a business owner so that I can deliver one of a kind support to other female business owners.
Ashley also helped me fine tune my own intuition which is huge when it comes to helping clients, and making the important decisions I need to make.
THIS is my life’s purpose. No doubt, no hesitation, just quiet confidence.
Beata Lorinc: Success Strategist | Cary, North Carolina
There are not enough words to explain the difference your coaching has made in my life.
Before working with Ashley, I was lacking confidence and found it hard to cope because of fear. I didn’t want help from anyone, and I thought I was the only one feeling this way.
I had no hope or path to walk.
Ashley’s coaching, intuition and guidance were exactly what I needed to finally become the woman I want. What I loved most working with her were the simple, yet really powerful tools on how to develop confidence. I now use fear to my advantage which allows me to be more trusting, open, confident and successful as I’ve taken the steps to start my own business. How’s that for courage!
I went from feeling insecure to strong, hopeful and clear. The safe environment Ashley created is full of such incredible women from around the world.
I can’t say it enough but thank you for being in my life.
Tracy Brewer: Private Chef | Denver, Colorado
What I loved most was being a part of an incredibly kind, empathetic and supportive community from around the world.
I was afraid of quitting a corporate job I knew I had to leave.
Since starting Ashley’s coaching program, I found the courage to announce my resignation from a company I joined when I was 19 years old.
This is by far the best and most freeing decision I’ve made although fear does creep in from time to time. Ashley taught us how to develop courage, and I rely on what I learned daily.
Having the support of such incredible women made it a lot less scary than doing it on my own. It gave me so much strength, encouragement and motivation.
Diana Furber: Madrid, Spain
Ashley helped me completely shift my mindset for the better.
Before working with Ashley, I was without direction in life. I was completely locked in fear, and it had created so much sadness and stress. Everything in my life was suffering because of this- my love life, career and the decision where to live.
In just one 50-minute session with her, she helped me transform this fear which had ruled my life for more than fifteen years.
I am now crystal clear and confident with who I am, what I want and what I’m doing which includes a complete career change. I was in marketing, and have since made the decision to become a coach myself to help other women the way Ashley helped me. I have never felt so excited about my future.
The freedom, relief and calm that I now experience are hard to put in words. I am so grateful I decided to work with her, and can confidently say that our work has transformed my life forever.
Laura Serafina Anna: Coach | Austria
There is no “playing small” around Ashley. And this is good thing!
I started working with Ashley because I wanted to dream big and take my own business to the next level. I knew right away she was the one I wanted to work with.
Everything about her screams inspiration and love, two qualities I really wanted to infuse my business with.
I’m in the process of rebranding my business, and Ashley has been there the entire time pointing to opportunities I might not have seen myself.
If you want to work with someone who inspires you to not only dream but be your best self, she is the one.
Maria Jose Flaque : Founder of Mujer Holistica | Nomad
Ashley has taught me the power of living in clarity and virtue each and every day.
As a very busy mother of two and a professional, I so appreciate her style of coaching, which is clear and concise and helps me make the progress I need to make. Over the years she has helped me focus on what is right for my business and myself, and has supported me to execute with confidence and ease.
Ashley’s coaching, generous spirit and gift to meet me exactly where I’m at lights a fire in me, moving me ever closer to my purpose and to live in my fullest expression.
Also, her ability to celebrate the small stuff is such a gift, and one that has so impacted not only me, but also my family.
Laura Thompson Brady, Ph.D : Founder of The Nourished Home | Maine
This woman is a perfect mix of intuition and strategy which is such a win!
Ashley has an innate ability to dive in and draw out the clarity I need to move forward with the projects I’m working on. Her coaching has been a huge blessing, and I’m extremely honored to have her as a constant inspirational force in my life.
She seems to always know how to point me in the best imaginable direction.
Ashley Burnett : Founder of Strong Body Love | San Francisco, California
I am becoming the leader and woman I’ve always wanted to be, and I don’t want these moments to end.
Prior to working with Ashley I had no clear goals, just ideas of goals. I wasn’t moving forward and I was in a disarray of my thoughts. Life was simply a daily grind. I was only accomplishing the daily musts to keep life grinding forward, but not smoothly, happily, stress-free, or living in the moment.
Our work together really helped me boil it down to Clarity. Yes, with a capital C. By working with Ashley, I now value the clarity I have gained on who I am as a woman, what I have the power to do, and how I want to change my life (on many levels), and the actions are following. No one wants to wander in fog.
I’ve gained so much knowledge from our coaching, and am better at implementing all these pieces into my days, weeks and months.
After taking Ashley’s program for a second time, I’m taking action in my physical, mental and emotional world and I’m totally loving everything- I’m loving life. It feels so good. I’m Becoming! And also Being. Thanks to your support and guidance.
It has been such an honor learning from you, Ashley. My life is forever changed. My kids may thank you one day.
Erin Kleopa: Founder of New Life Wellness | Catonsville, Maryland
I so looked forward to each and every call with Ashley that I sometimes would wake at 3:00 am for our sessions!
I took my dream and actually made it a reality. I went from being unfocused and overwhelmed with ideas, to starting a blog that documents my travels around the world.
From being a dreamer with tons of visions and little action, Ashley helped me develop an organized and structured life with her loving support.
Ashley helped me move through my fear of failure and the guilt that comes with procrastination. Now I wake up with a deep inner-trust, strength and know-how to keep building the life that I want so badly.
Our powerful conversations gave me the inspiration to believe that everything I need starts within myself. And I now have the skillset to experience life’s ups and downs with grace. This is all possible because of our coaching.
This woman and how she works are pure inspiration.
I am, and will be thankful for this experience for the rest of my life. This is not going to be my first and only time of coaching with Ashley.
Ashley, I can’t say enough just how deeply grateful I am for all of your patience and support. Danke dir. Aus tiefstem Herzen.
Felicitas Geiger : Founder of Felis World | Nomad
One session with you was like 6 months (or years?) of therapy!
Ashley is a rarity. Her ability to combine deep soulful work, spiritual depth and to support me with the practical action stuff is priceless and a total game-changer.
Before working with Ashley I was letting procrastination run the show. This showed up in many aspects of my life. Feeling stuck is not an empowering place to live from. Also, it’s a buzz kill. Since working with Ashley I’ve realized in the best way possible to transform this, and it’s so good and powerful. Ashley helped me see the power behind this negative trait, and now I use it as fuel to move me forward.
She has inspired me to be more in touch with my soul’s calling, my higher self, my inner strength, and inner wisdom. Her care and support were able to help me touch those places in myself that were forgotten or sometimes get pushed aside, and to help me see clearly and trust deeply.
She acts less as an authority and more as a peer. Ashley walks the talk, and that creates deep trust and connection. And her humor–her humor is so good! When I look back on the decision to work with her, I can’t be more grateful.
Lori Geller, ND. : Naturopathic Physician + Body Talk Practioner | Portland, Oregon
Ashley has helped me realize my full potential, and to not be scared of it.
I have been able to accomplish more than what I thought was possible, and with way more grace and ease.
Prior to meeting Ashley though, I was stuck. I was in the middle of launching a business that I was so excited about (dream-come-true excited), but I was procrastinating, unsure and stagnant.
I wanted to move forward to actualize my dream, but was having a hard time. Ashley helped me get clear, create structure and follow-through, and I’ve since moved ahead and launched my dream business called Strange Vacation.
My business is a brand of fashionable (and safe) motorcycling clothing for women, which also creates culture for ladies who want to ride.
One thing that’s been so valuable is that Ashley has helped me build a strong emotional foundation so that I can be a leader and entrepreneur. Anxiety has always played a huge part in my life, and working with Ashley gave me a solid toolbox to not only manage my anxiety, but use it to my advantage.
I feel happy and incredibly thankful for where I’m at now. She held me accountable when I couldn’t do it for myself, and gave me the tools that I needed.
Ashley is all love and support, and in the best kind of way.
She has been through many struggles herself, which makes her relatable because she gets it. She is an incredibly strong, loving spirit whose main passion is helping others. What more can you ask for in a life coach?
Kelly Wehner : Co-founder of Strange Vacation | Portland, Oregon
Working with Ashley has brought me to a place where I am exactly where I need to be physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually, and at ALL TIMES.
Here are some of my biggest breakthroughs working with Ashley:
– I learned how to work with my fear, doubt and hesitation. I now have tools to help when those do arise, and this brings me closer to my truth.
– I now know that the deep transformation work can be easy.
– I learned about my own intuition and how to access it.
– Self-care was a list of things I could do for myself. It’s since morphed into more of an attitude. It’s more of a secure feeling I have in myself that I just genuinely love myself; I have the confidence that I can take care of myself as needs arise.
– I feel like I’ve worked through the “I’m not good enough” script.
– Feeling tightness/stress/anxiety etc. around a situation seems to happen less frequently, and when it does there is this joyful detached quality in it.
– Self-care feels less like something I can just negotiate out of my life. It is a non-negotiable and definitely more ingrained into my being.
– I stopped writing to-do lists yet I still get stuff done!
– I’ve stopped doing the “Ok, I’ll start once x, y and z are in place”, and just started doing things I want.
– There is much more ease and pleasure in my life. I fall in love with the world daily.
– Now, I know I’m awesome. It’s ingrained and has a humble and appreciative quality to it.
– Transformation doesn’t have to suck. You’re right, Ashley!
– I already have everything I need.
– Let fear run its course. Give it my full attention. This is the match to my liberation.
– Start making those decisions I know I need to make.
Working with you was so wonderful! Thank you, Ashley!
Amie Collins: Eagle Bridge | New York
I have had only two sessions, but it has already brought so much clarity! Ashley’s questions encourage me to think about myself and my life in ways I never have .
Working with Ashley is extraordinary. Before working with her I felt completely lost, so much that I was about to embark on a worldwide tour in hopes of finding the thing I was searching for- me.
Thank goodness I found her as our time together helped me get clear with who I am and what my real purpose in life is without needing to tramp across the world. Not only did I find clarity, but I found my voice. Finding this voice gave me a whole new confidence I didn’t know existed. This was by far one of the biggest breakthroughs I had.
And what I loved most about working with Ashley is her intuition. It’s very real and she taught me how to start accessing mine. Along with being highly intuitive, Ashley is very practical and grounded. She makes it so easy to become the woman you want.

Working with Ashley encouraged me to feel powerful and to deeply realize that I am worthy.
Before working with Ashley I felt anxious, fearful and insecure. I knew I wanted to travel the world, but was really hesitant to.
I remember that in my initial strategy session you actually congratulated me for not having a job, and this was the encouragement I needed to embark on this 5-month journey. I wouldn’t have done it without those words!
In addition to traveling the world, I’ve since become a yoga teacher and started a blog. Ashley’s coaching inspired me so much that I’m planning on becoming a coach so that I can empower women to find their voice.
And what’s really great about the work I’ve done with her is that fear has been transformed into trust and courage as I continue to build the life I really want to live.
Working with Ashley was so worth it. Some of her clients call her a professional best friend, and they are right!
Thank you, Ashley!

Ash- You gave me the tools to become the women I am after losing everything.
I had two hard years of feeling burnt out and completely lost. I broke up with my boyfriend after seven years and this was so hard. I lost a job that I loved and had to change homes. I lost friends. I lost everything.
When I heard about you and your program, I was in the dark. I was broken and stuck, but had hope working with you would help me find my way again. I was right.
What I learned from you took the burden off my shoulders. You taught me so many practical tools and helped me ask really big questions about myself and my life.
I still have so much to learn, understand and develop on, but I now have the tools to do this. I guess the quote of “when the student is ready, the teacher will appear” is right.
Starting your program was the first step on the path to myself. I couldn’t be more grateful, Ashley!

One of my biggest a’has working with Ashley was discovering my deep sense of purpose.
Working with Ashley helped me discover some really important things like my life’s purpose! I’ve discovered my life’s purpose by working with her, and this couldn’t be more important to me.
I also realized the massive creative potential that I have. I want to be a maker myself instead of consuming other people’s work. Ashley helped me implement simple yet really powerful tweaks to my daily life that led to a sheer creative overflow.
Additionally, I have learnt that I need a fair amount of structure and routine to function efficiently- that I need to plan time for being chaotic and unstructured. If not, I have a guilty conscious when I don’t fulfill my plan. This has been a wonderful addition to my life.
Lastly, I have realized how many different fields of my life are connected- stress, self-care, relationships, focus, efficiency, creativity and how they’re all intertwined and I can’t ignore any of them.
Honestly though, what I loved most about coaching with Ashley was her personality. It was just the right mix of holding me accountable and sympathizing with me. I like how authentic she is.
I also like our private Facebook group a lot and I can’t wait to meet some of the other women who are all over the world.

I feel like such a well-rounded, independent, driven and confident WOMAN.
Our time together helped me grow through my mind-bottling anxiety and procrastination. I have learned how to recognize and change my abnormal behaviors.
I have learned that these behaviors (cheating on exes, lying, an eating disorder and cramming for tests) were embodiments of fear and procrastination. Ash helped me learn the tools I needed to work through this and grow.
I now know the things that make me happy and am getting closer to those things on a weekly basis. I have started to do the things I’ve always wanted to. I’ve learned to do things with intention, which helps my naturally anxious tendency to be patient, present and live in the moment.
I have realized that I was sent here for a different purpose than most. I have come to trust the universe and that everything will fall in place. I just need to listen and try my best.
I still have a long way to go but I am getting closer to really becoming who I want. I am excited and ready!

Ashley is like your professional best friend. She doesn’t just let you talk about what you want, she works with you to create what you want.
I’m a 23-year old passionate young woman who has big dreams, but I had no idea where to start.
My sense of trust and confidence were not strong, and I was lost with my creative ideas. I had no real plan of action and it was overwhelming.
Now, I’m traveling the world as a writer and yoga teacher. I left my home in Switzerland one year ago to travel the world, and have been living my dream ever since.
Ashley’s work is real.
I’ve never made progress like this in such a short amount of time.
You’re becoming who you want, creating a solid foundation for who you really are, and this happens in a very beautiful, comfortable and fascinating way. Most sessions we’re laughing and giggling just as much as we’re talking serious matters–it’s the perfect blend for transformation.
I feel strong, motivated, grateful, and full of love because of my work with Ashley.
She weaves together coaching and strategy, and gives you damn good tips, tools and practical resources.
Also, Ashley teaches on mindfulness which has allowed me to create solid daily rituals for my mental, physical, spiritual and emotional health.
I’d say working with her is one of the top three investments of my life. I just love her. I am grateful!

I now feel like I have control over my life. Ashley gave me the right tools, support and advice to start doing the things I knew I wanted for myself.
My biggest breakthroughs working with Ashley are:
Action generates action: If you start doing, you’ll keep doing. It’s like the domino effect which has helped me not fall back into bad habits.
My intuition is (almost) always right. Ashley helped me tune into this as I was used to doubting myself a lot. Now, I can and should trust my intuition which helps me make strong and clear decisions.
The answers are already inside myself. Working with Ashley helped bring out the great things that already existed in my mind and heart.
Since our program, I have been stepping out of my comfort zone like never before. I became thirsty for knowledge again, and to learn and live fully. I used to watch episode after episode of television, but now I don’t because something huge is happening inside of me…
I no longer live the days where I would cry wanting to escape my life. Ashley and others have influenced me, but I have to acknowledge and thank myself first for finding the courage somewhere to say yes to working with Ashley.
I know I wouldn’t be at this point in my life without Ashley’s words, patience and intuition.

Since starting Ashley’s program, everything is changing for the better–myself, my passion, my business, my husband and our new home in Hawaii.
Before working with Ashley, I felt overwhelmed and anxious by all the tasks I had to accomplish for my life and business, and I was having trouble finding a good starting point.
Working with Ashley is the best thing I’ve done, and here’s why:
I’ve taken a big step forward as an entrepreneur with my makeup business, and am clear with what I do. I’m a makeup artist in Hawaii, and I help turn women into gorgeous, calm and empowered brides. This clarity when working with clients is powerful.
In just six weeks of working with her, I’ve booked three incredible weddings. She is both a life coach and a business woman so she gets it.
I’m taking more risks to become the courageous business woman I want to be. I sleep better, I’m more organized and calmer because I have the map to make this all work for me.
Working with Ashley is the best thing I’ve done.
I’m a believer that the energy you put into the world is the energy you get back, and it’s working. I am proud to say my new business is on track towards big success, and this makes me beyond happy.

I was depressed, sick and tired of living someone else’s dream instead of mine.
Before I met Ashley, I was living a very unhappy life and always searching for fulfillment in my career.
I’m a Swiss Journalist and Blogger and had lost my joy in writing. My job became such a source of agony for me, and my passion for writing turned into a nightmare.
Working with Ashley helped me change this for the better. Ashley helped me resolve my fear of failure and to understand the value of myself. I now know in detail what I want and want I don’t want. I’ve since found personal happiness and have become the person who I love to be. Because of all of this, my magazine (Mrs. Globalicious) has turned into my life’s passion and I serve the hearts of other women whose shoes I have walked in.
My dream is taking me from Switzerland to Los Angeles (as we speak!) to work as an International Journalist, and I can’t even believe it’s coming true. I really wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for Ashley’s support and love.
Ashley is a great woman. For me, she is like an imaginary friend who stands behind me and shows me where to go when I’m stuck, even if we are thousands of miles apart. She’s like my soulmate.
I’m beyond happy to say that she’s now my role model, friend, support system and coach.
Doris Gross: Founder of Mrs. Globalicious | Switzerland
I went from being a very unhappy social media consultant to an entrepreneur. Life is full of opportunities, and it’s so exciting.
I curate and run an online magazine called Veggie Love that’s focused on veganism, fashion and beauty. I’ve since landed a few great book deals, and am being seen as a thought-leader in my industry.
Working with Ashley helped me develop the confidence to really step into this.
Before this, I had a blurred vision of what I wanted my life to look like and I had no idea how I was going to get there. I needed the practical tools she offered me like how to schedule my days, organize my projects and really put myself out there. I also needed the support to believe I could pull this off.
I have gained so much working with her: the power to make clear decisions, to focus and strategize how I’m going to get what I want. I am becoming the confident woman I want, and this brings me so much joy.
With her radiant soul and strong intuition, Ashley is a cheerleader for all women. She has an incredible toolbox to offer clients, which never seems to fail and always helps me stay on my path.
Franziska Schmid : Writer and Founder of Veggie Love | Berlin, Germany
The confidence that came from making such strong and clear decisions resulted in so much more energy, and it’s incredible to feel so alive.
Before working with Ashley, I felt confused and overwhelmed with possibilities around what I should do next with my life. I felt lost and didn’t know what was important to me anymore.
Ashley asked just the right questions that brought me to the breakthroughs I needed. Having someone to reflect with and challenge my limiting beliefs are what really made this coaching so valuable.
What I love most about Ashley are her intuition and laughter which are so welcomed when trying to figure life out. Her style of coaching is a good mix of discussion, self-reflection and practical advice. Perfect!
Eike Feldmann : Pharmacist | Germany
What I loved about working with Ashley was her undivided attention and how important I felt. And her intuition is spot-on!
Ashley helped me find a healthy relationship to money and time, and as an entrepreneur this is essential.
To say- I have tripled my income since starting to work with Ashley.
Ashley helped me so much, but most importantly she helped me understand how important self-care is. I no longer feel guilty spending time on myself. In fact, I am doing the world a service by taking care of my needs because this helps me be a better woman, wife, business owner and leader. In her own words, ” strong self-care equals strong leadership.” I now get it!
I have loved working with her so much, and know I will be benefit from this for years to come.

Working with you has been one of the BEST investments, if not the best, of my life.
Your support and coaching have confirmed I’m on the right path in life, and everything in my life has improved from my business, relationships, how I feel about myself- everything.
I am very happy I said yes!
Ute Klingelhöfer : Founder of Contentwerk | Germany
Before working with Ashley, I felt like I had lost my compass in life and was deeply frustrated with relationship patterns that I had developed.
Deciding to work with her wasn’t really my brain, but my heart that made the decision. I didn’t think much, I felt it. I had been keeping my eyes open for a life coach for a few months before I came across her website.
I always knew I wouldn’t have to look for my right coach, she’d appear and I would feel that she would be it. And that’s how it was with Ashley.
I read her website, looked at her happy photos and knew INSTANTLY that she was it. I loved her spirit, the way she communicated what she wants for her clients (and for yourself). I loved that she’s a woman who is doing her own thing, is adventurous and takes good care of herself in many ways. I loved how she incorporates intuition and spirituality into her life and work. I felt like I needed a coach that could inspire me and I knew she was it.
I wanted feedback, clarity, and an accountability partner. I wanted to be challenged to change my patterns and to achieve the best life possible for me.
I wanted to see how I can become a better Conni by working with a coach. I was sick of doing the same things and getting the same results. I knew I had to change some areas of my life around, or improve them, to get different results.
I love how Ashley got me. I felt completely safe. I felt appreciated, supported and taken seriously to the nth degree. It’s awesome. In general, it gives me more confidence in life to have someone who is fully present with me.
Also: She makes me do things and I do them. Period. I don’t have to think about it. And she challenged me look at things in different ways, which opens me up to these new ways of seeing my life and my problems and pains. This has opened up a lot of space for me to explore.
Since starting Ashley’s program, I have gained so much clarity in all aspects of my life. I finally have awesome practical tools that actually help me to get through challenging times. I feel like I made a huge jump in my own personal development and that, piece by piece, I’m becoming the person I want and am meant to be.
When I look back at the investment, I feel very proud of myself for having made the decision to work with Ashley, because it has been a complete game changer for me.
Having her support is so valuable, and it’s why I’ve decided to work with her for a second round of coaching. Best investment ever, I swear!
Conni Biesalski : Founder of Planet Backpack, Nomad
I’ll say what so many of her clients are saying- working with Ashley was truly the best decision of my life.
I believe that things come into your life when you most need them, yet it’s a pity that I didn’t decide to work with Ashley earlier.
Nine months prior to working with Ashley I was so unhappy and unhealthy.
I was working in the loan department of a bank and it was miserable. I was living a life that others wanted me to live, and there was such a deep anger around this. I was doing what everyone else thought I should do, and it was destroying me.
After twelve grueling years, I decided to finally quit my job and open a yoga studio. Was it easy? No. Was I beset by doubts, fears and questioning if I made the right decision? Yes.
Ashley helped me move through this so I could run my studio and become the teacher I always dreamt of. I feel so grateful that I created what I did, and I’m more free than ever before.
My studio is thriving, so much that I moved to a larger location because of this success.
Along with this success, there’s so much joy in my marriage and social life. Since starting to work with Ashley I now follow my heart, do what I want, and live with joy and ease.
