We had the good fortune of connecting with Ash Elisé and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Ash, what role has risk played in your life or career?
I believe RISKS are a gateway into the life that was, specifically, created for us. Without taking risks, you’ll always feel unfulfilled because the life you are envisioning is on the other side of fear. Risks are NECESSARY in who we currently are, who we are becoming, & for who we are going to be.

Risks have played a MAJOR role in who I am today! Risks have required me to have the courage to pursue the vision(s) in my heart, embrace who I, TRULY, am, & to wholeheartedly pursue my dreams.

In 2013, I decided to take a RISK & QUIT MY JOB OF 4 YEARS at IN-N-OUT BURGER to grow my new business in the direct sales industry! I was 25 years old & I kept feeling the TUG that I was made for more! It’s as if my FUTURE was calling me into it. I’m SO glad that I DECIDED to go for it because that’s the day I became a FULL-TIME ENTREPRENEUR! It was scary; but SO worth it! I was VERY successful while in that industry & grew in influence and wealth beyond what I could imagine. In 2018, I decided to take ANOTHER crazy risk and LEAVE that business to pursue being a COACH full time. THAT risk was worth it too even though I felt CRAAAAZY as heck! I’ve been beyond honored to help as many people that I can on a daily basis & to experience SUCCESS the way I do.

I’ve taken risks in my friendships, relationships, businesses, & the list goes on & on! You have to be willing to LET GO of who you are so you can become who you’re destined to be.

What should our readers know about your business?
I have the honor of coaching some INCREDIBLE people daily! I, also, SPEAK to & inspire people at CONFERENCES, RETREATS, & MORE. I specialize in helping people DISCOVER + DEFINE their purpose; PLUS, in giving them the tools they need to walk in their PURPOSE + CALLING everyday! I give THERAPY to people’s BRANDS! I, also, teach them how to build SUCCESSFUL businesses online &/or offline! In a nutshell, I help people take their ENITRE lives to the NEXT LEVEL from the inside-out.

I believe what sets me apart as a coach is that I don’t allow myself to be boxed in. My coaching program feels like a therapy session, business/band coaching, and MORE all wrapped into ONE! LOL I believe in laying a STRONG + SOLID foundation before teaching my clients how to successfully brand/market whatever it is they are building! I’ve had the privilege of helping SO many people successfully LAUNCH into their purpose! I give them the tools they need to help them maintain what they’ve, boldly, stepped into & to help keep their MOMENTUM high! A lot of people haven’t reached the level they KNOW they’re supposed to be on because they haven’t taken the time to, vulnerably, sit with themselves, intentionally heal, & to prepare for the increase. I help people do exactly that.

It has NOT been easy getting to where I am today! I’ve learned MANY things over the past 8 years!

Some of the MAIN lessons I’ve learned are:

.BE A GOOD STEWARD OF WHO/WHAT YOU’VE BEEN GIVEN
.ALWAYS STAY TRUE TO WHO YOU ARE & BE AUTHENTIC. AUTHENTICITY IS A KEY TO SUCCESS
.TAKE RESPONSIBILITY + DON’T BLAME OTHERS FOR YOU NOT BEING WHERE YOU SHOULD IN LIFE
.MAKE SURE YOU HAVE A MORNING ROUTINE FOR WHAT YOU DO BEFORE HOPPING ON SOCIAL MEDIA + STARTING YOUR WORK DAY! YOU SHOULD BEGIN YOUR DAY FILLED UP, ENCOURAGED, + INSPIRED
.BE CONSISTENT + SHOW UP. DON’T ALLOW YOUR FEELINGS TO CONTROL YOUR TIME &/OR WEALTH

I’m determined to leave a LEGACY in the earth. I am intentional about making good decisions, DAILY, that I know will influence + impact generations to come. When people encounter me, I want them to be reminded that they are playing a HUGE part in this beautiful dance we call “LIFE;” & that ABSOLUTELY NOTHING is impossible.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Ok, so here are some of my absolute FAVORITE places in L.A. A MAJORITY of them involve food haha

•Sweetgreen (Yummy salads)
•Pura vita (The BEST vegan Italian food like EVER)
•Tatsu Ramen (My FAV ramen place! It’s good EVERY TIME!)
.Monty’s (The most incredible vegan burgers, fries, & shakes)
•Sun cafe (It’s such a vibe! PLUS, the food is absolutely AMAZING! It’s ALL plantbased)
•Pacific Palisades (I LOVE going to the beach here! It’s so beautiful)
•Aroma Cafe (This is my fav place to have brunch! The food + vibe is just so good!)
•The Den (My fav hangout place when I want to get cute, go have some drinks, & have a good time with friends)

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I’d love to dedicate my shoutout to my parents. They haven’t always gotten everything right (I mean WHAT parents do lol); but since I was a little girl, they have encouraged me to ALWAYS be MYSELF! They’ve cheered me on when l’ve felt out of place in life. They helped to teach me that being different from the rest of the crowd is actually super dope! They’ve allowed me to have a VOICE even when others wanted me to be quiet. They’ve given me the space to navigate through the process of BECOMING; & I’m forever thankful for that! My dad, Grady, & my mom, Rhonda, are a HUGE reason why I am the person I am today. Thank you, both, for everything!

I’d also love to shoutout my siblings, close family + friends, & clients! Without ALL of you, I would NOT be where I am today! Last, but not least, shoutout to God for being incredible! I am forever thankful for his goodness & mercy.
