Ashley Pardo - A Coach for The Entrepreneurial Introvert

The Heidi B Show

How to Thrive in Business as an Introverted Entrepreneur with Ashley Pardo Do I have to force myself to be an extrovert to succeed? If you're an introvert, you have probably asked this question before. It's hard to connect with other people if you feel more vitalized when you're alone. The overwhelming stimuli of the business world can also overburden you. But being an entrepreneurial introvert has its perks. Your uniqueness and traits can be instrumental to your success. In this episode, we are joined by Ashley Pardo, a body-mind business coach and a nutritional therapy practitioner. She shares with us her journey toward mindful living, recovering from eating disorders, and the challenges she faced in becoming a thriving entrepreneurial introvert. She also gives advice on relationships.  Tune in to this episode if you are  an introvert who is just starting in the online business industry. Here are three reasons why you should listen to the full episode: How do you use your traits as an introvert to your advantage in entrepreneurship? Discover how Ashley, an introvert herself, thrives in her online industry. Implement Ashley’s advice to introverts starting their businesses.  Resources How I Stopped Fucking Randos And Started Cupcaking My Soulmate by Heidi Busche WISE - Women Introverts, Sensitives, & Empaths Podcast by Ashley Pardo Women, Food and God: An Unexpected Path to Almost Everything by Geneen Roth School of Greatness Podcast by Lewis Howes Episode Highlights Ashley's Transition to Coaching Entrepreneurial Introverts Ashley first started working in corporate human resources. Deep down, she had always known that it wasn't for her. Struggling with eating disorders most of her life, she wanted to help others to have a good relationship with food. She got her master's degree in food studies then went to a cooking school and ended up working on farms in Italy. Ashley's Recovery From Eating Disorders As early as ten years old, she started struggling with eating disorders. She did therapy but never went to a recovery center. The book by Geneen Roth called Women, Food, and God helped her tremendously. People have to learn how to deal with food and develop an internal drive to make the right decisions. At age 32, she started helping women with their emotional eating and became a certified nutritional therapy practitioner. Experiences in Cooking School and Working in Italy She learned the classic and meticulous style of preparing French cuisine in cooking school. Ashley recognized that it was not accessible for home cooks. She joined an organization called WOOF (Worldwide Organization Opportunities on Organic Farms). She also had an opportunity to live on farms in Italy for three months and learned a sustainable and easy way of cooking. Through that experience, she aimed to teach people how to cook by publishing content online. She worked for people who wanted somebody to cook in their homes; it taught her quick thinking and selling tactics.   Ashley's Likes and Dislikes in Cooking She loves to bake and prepare classic French dishes. To know more about her favorite recipes, listen to the full episode! Her least favorite is cooking and preparing chicken meals. Being an Introverted Entrepreneur Ashley considers herself as an introvert, but she cherishes meeting and talking to people. She used to be very timid and soft-spoken at first, but she got through it by practicing. Be willing to suck if you're going to be an entrepreneur. Go ugly early. Video and voice communication build intimate connections. If you're going to be in the online business for the long haul, start now. Be in a community that does the same thing as you so that you can talk about your struggles easily. Tips for Introverts Starting in Entrepreneurship Introverts have an advantage when it comes to connecting with people. It has been one of their quintessential traits. Provide solutions for specific problems. Be aware of your customers' struggles, thoughts, and fear points. How to Do Market Research on Your Customers Pay attention to what people are talking about. Listen to media outlets like social media and television. Assist people with the same problems you once had. In that way, you know how to help them inside and out. Conduct 15-minute free coaching sessions and take notes.  Making a Relationship Work Relationships are hard, but having excellent communication and honesty with each other helps. Keep an open mind. Express your appreciation to your partner. Be mindful of your partner's triggers. Fascination with Tarot Cards Ashley is very spiritual, and tarot cards keep her grounded. Tarot and crystals are only tools to connect deeply with yourself and to other people. Having a structure and routine every day can be beneficial for emotional women amid the COVID-19 crisis. Tarot cards only confirm your intuition. Interpret what it means to you and integrate it into your life. Ashley's Daily Non-negotiables Exercise. Although it is called non-negotiables, be flexible when it's not available to you. Advice for Struggling Introverts Because introverts think a lot, they must be reminded of the importance of taking action. Perform one piece of action you can do today to get near to your goal. Any action is a good action. Just start doing something, whether it’s little or big steps. The confidence and momentum you build up will propel you as you move forward. 5 Powerful Quotes from This Episode “If you have something that you're not addressing, it's not the symptom. It's the cause.” “If anybody's out there listening who is starting their business, go ugly early.” “Any action is a good action.” “Sometimes it feels like we're taking action by thinking about something, you know, when we fantasize about it, like, ‘Oh, yeah, I'm thinking about it. It's happening!’ It's not happening yet.” “I'd rather just not put pressure on the amount of action. Just start doing something. And the momentum that you gained from that, and the confidence, and the forward motion that you're going to have from just doing one thing is going to be the thing that keeps you moving forward.” About Ashley Ashley Pardo is a body-mind business coach, nutritional therapist, and a private chef.

MOTM #164: Building an Online Business by Taking Small Steps with Ashley Pardo

Maestro on the Mic

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.In This Episode You'll Hear:Ashley’s leap of faith out of HR and into the culinary worldHow she dealt with disordered eating and discomfort around foodPitching yourself and your products by building relationshipsWhat is Ashley’s WHY?Understanding the cause instead of just treating the symptomsHow Ashley stumbled upon InstagramFinding direction through mentorship and self-investmentGo where the clients take youWhat nutrition coaching with Ashley looks likeHow Ashley goes deeper with her clientsProvide value to others’ audiences in order to grow your ownPeople appreciate sincerityHow to go into business as an introvertLinks & Resources For This Episode:Website: ashleypardo.comConnect with Ashley on Instagram: @ashleykpardoWomen Food and God: An Unexpected Path to Almost Everything by Geneen RothThe Jovian Human Design ChartThe post MOTM #164: Building an Online Business by Taking Small Steps with Ashley Pardo appeared first on The Movement Maestro.
