Ashley Pardo isn’t my typical podcast guest. She’s a former chef, a nutrition and business coach, she isn’t in the movement space at all… but damn it, she is Doing. The. Thing. And that’s something we all need to hear.
Before Ashley took the leap to working in food, she had a stable job in Human Resources, but—like many of us—knew a piece of her soul died every day she worked in the same boring, gray building. Her career took a 180 as she went to culinary school and began working as a private chef, and eventually built her career even further by working as a nutrition and a business coach.
Ashley’s career may not look anything like yours, but the principles of business she uses to thrive remain the same: provide value for free, make meaningful connections with your clients, and uphold sincerity above all.
All it takes to make your dreams come true is a desire to make a change paired with taking action.
