Ashley’s Question or Topic
Ashley has a smoothie business named Ignite Nutrition. She and her husband are trying to expand in Houston, but they found it hard because Ashley sees all their colleagues expanding in their cities and becoming more successful. Because of that, Ashley is having second thoughts about whether she is cut out for entrepreneurship or not.
Gary’s Story and Advices
Before Ashley thinks about whether she’s cut out to be an entrepreneur or not, Gary wants her to know that nobody’s life or expansion of their businesses has anything to do with her. People spend so much time in envy about how somebody else is growing, and that’s a complete waste of time.
What Ashley needs to do now is to dedicate 100% of her time to her customers and improve her services and products. And she can do that by telling her story, putting herself out there, and creating a lot of content. She should post 3 videos a day – one on Instagram, one on Facebook, and one on TikTok about all the smoothies that she sells, how she makes them, and how she thought about them.
