    25: How She Started Her Own Clothing Line

    Highlights from Ashly Ryan, Founder of Splice Clothing:


    Launching right before Coronavirus hit, Ashley remains optimistic about the future of travel and the need for her clothing.

    Ashly created a reversible clothing line that helps people pack light when traveling.

    She got started by hiring a consultant that helped her with her first steps.

    Ashly talks about how she found manufacturers in China and the process she went through to get samples made.

    Her custom fabrics are made from eucalyptus trees.

    Ashy says that the hardest thing about being an entrepreneur is that it can be lonely, the best part is when people are excited about your product.

    Her advice for anyone wanting to start a business: create something that provides value and then just do it! Don’t wait.

    24: How She Became a Boudoir Photographer and Connection Strategist

    Highlights from Becky of Your Connection Strategist:


    She was wrongfully fired from her job but used that fear and uncertainty to guide her into entrepreneurship.

    Decide on something and just get started.
    You don’t have to have a degree or a formal education to start a business.

    She chose her niche in boudoir photography because she has a passion for human connection. She coaches her photography clients to be their best selves. Seeing and accepting themselves as they are now.

    Find the person that is doing what you want to be doing, and learn from them. Shadow them. Ask them to mentor you.

    Becky's Virtual workspace - Work: On Purpose. With Purpose - An all inclusive, community membership providing an action hour 3 times a week so you can focus on what you want to achieve in your life, business or otherwise.

    She has 3 young children but uses her time wisely. She doesn’t let that stop her dreams. She uses it as motivation and is intentionally busy with her time. Go outside your comfort zone to help build your business. Make fear your best friend.
