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

Hi Ashley, alright, let’s jump in with a deep one – what’s you’re definition for success?
A person’s individual success varies. I define success as actually being fulfilled and happy with whatever goals I attained for myself.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
I’m a working actress living in LA. We can all agree that I’m one out of a million people pursuing an acting career.

I believe what sets a person apart from others in such a big industry, is WORK ETHIC. No one attained success by just sitting back and letting it fall in their lap. You have to work for it. The keys to success, in my opinion, are vision, consistency, persistence, discipline, and faith. If you don’t believe you have it, no one else will.

Time and change is given to everyone EVERY MORNING. It’s just a matter of what we do with it.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
One of my fav spots in LA is the farmer’s market. I love any and everything fresh and naturally grown. I would literally visit different markets around the city on Saturdays and Sundays. It’s liberating!Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I would like to shout out my family. My family has been my rock. They know me better than anyone, so having their encouragement, wisdom, love (and tough love LOL) has kept me afloat. There’s nothing more important than family. We’re building an Empire!
