52. Setting Up Your Sola Systems with Ashley White and Steven Wren
As a salon owner, you wear so many hats. Systems help you create more efficiency in your business so you can spend more time doing the things you love most. On this episode (originally recorded as a webinar), Faces of Sola Ashley White and Steven Wren share how they lean into the tools created by Sola to set themselves up for success and, if you're not already leaning into any of these tools, how you can get started. One of the Sola tools we cover is Sola Pro - a Sola-exclusive app to help you stay educated and inspired in the palm of your hand. Using Sola Pro (which recently got a total makeover), you can quickly and easily update your free Sola webpage. Tune in to hear Sola’s Chief Marketing Officer, Jennie Wolff, explain how to take advantage of your Sola webpage to significantly grow your clientele. Ashley also speaks about SolaGenius and how she leans into features like the color-coded calendar and text and email marketing to save hours each week and keep her books full. Sola has you covered from online booking to streamlining your backbar ordering with our new online distributor, BeautyHive, which offers perks like free next-day delivery and rewards points.

Advocating for reform in her home community of Baton Rouge, Ashely explains why local bail funds and community ties are so important in minimizing incarceration.

Episode 39 - Ashley White - Showing Up In A Room And Say What You’re Thinking
Stacked Keys Podcast
Showing Up In A Room and Say What You’re ThinkingThis conversation is incredible and has such depth with Ashley White that you’ll be immediately pulled into the life of a young adult who’s working in Nashville to establish herself. Look into her world as she made connections. Ashley is a song writer and has been she was a kid. She tells us about producing her songs and being messy while she is getting where she wants to through the songs. She says that she wonders if sometimes the ideas and things that we fall in love with we are younger and more innocent are not just dreams but that they are promises and plans from God. We talk about being in social media as she works in that world for clients and we talk about how you are communicating and balance. Some clarity comes in learning to believe in herself. Ashley has toured and has found that music is a bridge—it has a way of connecting us all—literally, physically and scientifically as our heartbeats get in rhythm when we hear music. We talk about the venerability of songwriting and the process. You will hear some of her journaling and thoughts of how she uses that technique. This is a special episode that will open your mind to a creative and true artist. We talk about enneagrams — a concept that you will want to investigate. Evidently enneagrams go back to childhood wounds and we get a bit down that road with Ashley. An interesting view that Ashley has is with mentors and community. She owns up to the idea that she wants the input and trusts it. Tune in!Song used by permission “Stomp” written by Donica Knight Holdman and Jim Huff
Ashley White currently works as a primary care nurse and has been practicing as an LPN for three years. We look into the vast opportunities available to a primary care nurse as a support in the community.
Ashley White on Becoming The Gentleman Lumberjack and Healing Through Nature
Ashley openly talks about the important role nature played and continues to play as someone with PTSD and anxiety. We talk about nature in healing and how it has not only helped him but how he's seen it in his family life - including the positive impact he sees with his son who was diagnosed with autism. He shares how he strives to keep balance when he is both the Gentleman (corporate persona) and Lumberjack (outdoorsy persona). We talk about diversity in the outdoors and how Ashley is creating safe spaces for others to explore and feel comfortable in new territory. Ashley also shares how each year he starts rookie season. It's trying something in the outdoors that stretches him and also is new to him. For 2019 it was fly fishing.
