About 2½ years ago, I had the opportunity to work with an incredible woman while she was still a student in Toronto — Dr. Ashley Margeson. She graduated as a Naturopathic Doctor about 18 months ago, and what is truly amazing is that she’s really taken the world by storm. Now, I wasn’t surprised by this at all — but what I find so fascinating is to really delve into the journey she’s had since graduating. She has accomplished so much and has several initiatives on the go.
Ashley is an incredible entrepreneur whom I respect deeply; she is someone who has been consistent in her ability to try new things, be willing to fail, and confidently move forward while inspiring others.
This episode, we get into her hacks of entrepreneurism, how to get through the flights and expedite your sense of recovery when you land on the other side, how to keep going as a female entrepreneur and craft your environment to help support your momentum — as well as accelerating your growth! Ashley also shares the three important questions you need to ask yourself to help set yourself up for success and achieve your goals.

CALL TO ACTION
This week’s call to action is to stop trying to do it ‘all’. Just because you can do it, doesn’t mean you have to do it. What is one thing in your life or business that you can start saying ‘no’ to or can delegate to someone else? Hiring an assistant? Subscribing to a healthy meal delivery? Whatever it is, share your commitment on our Entrepology Podcast facebook page. Because when you are accountable, you are helpable.
