We had the good fortune of connecting with Ashley Richards and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Ashley, do you have any habits that you feel contribute to your effectiveness?
I removed any habits that did not positively change my life a long time ago, giving me more time to do the things I love, and more time to commit to my business and my family. For example, I do not watch any TV. For me it did not give me joy, just sucked time away. When I first met my husband in 2009, I did not even own a TV! A habit I formed is trying to do something for my self every single day, whether it is listening to a podcast, taking a bath, or reading a book, something that fills me up personally. I also recommend sticking with a routine. Consistency always pays off.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
A favorite local spot is Sedona, Arizona. It is just far away to feel like a vacation, but close enough to make it a day trip. DA Ranch is my favorite winery to visit, and Elote Cafe is my all time favorite restaurant. Favorite Hotel? Amara. The amenities and views never disappoint.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
My success and drive all comes from my kids. I started my business when I had my daughter 5 years ago. I was determined to run a business and do what I love while being a mother as well. I owe all my success and drive to my incredible children; Ellie and Eli.
