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

Hi Ashley K, looking back, what do you think was the most difficult decision you’ve had to make?
Initially when the thought of starting my own business came across my mind, I doubted myself. I thought it would be too hard because I didn’t know too many people personally doing what I wanted to do, the way I wanted to do it. However, it didn’t take me long to snap out of that mindset and SHiFT that energy to a more positive energy. If I didn’t know a lot of people doing what I wanted to do then it was meant for me to do it. So I asked myself, should I put more energy into thinking about what was the worst thing that could happen or what was the best thing that could happen? That energy SHiFT was all I needed to give me the motivation to just go for it. I am passionate about serving others and solving problems. I wanted to use that passion in a creative way to help people evolve and succeed in life. I wanted to show others how to SHiFT so I first had to SHiFT. So, when I made the decision to make a decision the Universe SHiFTed for me. Nothing moves or happens until we deicide. Moving from the east coast to the west coast to Vegas, was hands down the most difficult decision I ever had to make. I did not know what to expect and to be completely honest, I was scared! I was moving outside of my comfort zone. Away from everything that I knew and everyone that I knew. However, I knew I had to get uncomfortable and take a major risk in order to get to the next level and tap into my greatness. I did not want to allow my fears to hold me back. Once I made the SHIFT in my mind…everything else fell into place. 

What should our readers know about your business?
One of the things I am most proud of is the decision I made to move to the west coast. It was not easy at all but it was definitely worth it. The main challenge was overcoming my fear of failure and defeat; Once I was able to do that, I feel like I have become unstoppable. The use of affirmations and positive self talk helped me to overcome my fears. I love affirmations. I actually have an affirmation mantra that I wrote that I say every single day. It’s a list of power statements that I say and sometimes add to depending on what is going on in my life at the time and/or what I am manifesting at that moment. I believe words have power and are spells. Therefore, what we say to ourselves, about ourselves, and about situations are very important. We are always manifesting, even when we think we aren;t. I desire to leave a positive legacy behind. I want people to remember me as the SHiFT. The woman that didn’t give up no matter the circumstances and/or obstacles and that they too can achieve anything they put their heart, mind, and soul to.

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?
I mean this is Vegas! There is actually to do in the city. From top restaurants to top shows and casinos. I of course would have anyone stop by my store which isn’t far from the Las Vegas’ strip. One of my favorite places to take visitors is Red Rock Canyon and the Fremont Street Experience. They can experience the natural beauty of the desert at Red Rock and the wild side of Vegas at Fremont. It’s like the best of both worlds.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I have to give a shoutout to my two daughters. They have truly been my backbone and driving force behind why I do what I do and why I refuse to give up! i do not know where I would be without them, honestly. For that I am forever grateful they came into my life and helped me SHiFT my purpose, drive, dedication, and most of all LOVE! I do al of this for them.
