With the right strategy and steps in place, you can do anything you set your mind to.
Hello Ashley, we are excited to share your thoughts with our readers. Please tell us a little bit about your background and how you ended up in online business coaching.
Ashley Enget : Hey everyone! My name is Ashley Enget, and I’m an online business strategist and coach for women who want to create their own business so they can ditch the 9-5 and travel the world.
After graduating with an engineering degree & working in corporate for almost 5 years, I started seriously considering starting my own business because I lacked purpose & wanted more vacation time. I first took a course on life coaching, but quickly figured out that I loved business coaching so much more. Growing up, I had started a lemonade stand, eBay business, soccer camp, woodworking business and other side hustles-so it all made sense when I found a love for business coaching. My business background in corporate, sales experience & entrepreneurial tendencies all pointed me towards this path.
What made you take the leap into entrepreneurship?
Ashley Enget : Well to be honest, I was laid off when oil & gas wasn’t doing well, so I was kind of thrown into it! I originally thought that I would build my business for 6-12 months & develop a steady income before I left corporate, but obviously this didn’t go according to plan!
Fortunately, right before I was let go, I had hired a coach to help me get clarity & teach me everything she knew about navigating the online business world. She was honestly the biggest factor that contributed to me being able to make 5 figure months only 180 days after being let go.
What advice would you give to someone asking for advice about becoming an entrepreneur?
Ashley Enget : Don’t listen to the “experts” when they say that it takes 3-5 years to build a profitable business. I’m living proof that that is false. In today’s world with free marketing on social media, the sky is the limit on what you can achieve. Gone are the days of door-to-door sales or paying for newspaper ads to find people who need what you have to offer. The only tricky part is mastering your marketing message & sales conversations. Your investment in a service based business is tiny compared to opening a physical storefront or product based business-which means you can create an ROI of 200%-300% within a couple months of launching!
What do you do to recharge when you are feeling drained?
Ashley Enget : Travelling &spending time outside always makes me feel recharged. I always make sure to schedule in some trips to visit family, friends or just enjoy beautiful landscape around the world. This year I’ve been able to make it to Jamaica & Thailand. Next, I’m heading to Bali + North Dakota in June, and then Nigeria in July(to visit the orphanage my sister’s business supports!). The rest of the year is still up in the air, but I have Belize, Cuba & St. Lucia as the likely trips. I feel incredibly blessed that I’m able to work from my laptop and support my clients from anywhere around the world.
