Meet Ashley Shaw: Rebel, Entrepeneur, CEO & Coach
Let's get on a first name basis.
I'm a CEO by day. A happiness-activist by night.
I love being a CEO.
I've got my dream job - Working as a CEO for a fitness company & helping Vancouver Island become the healthiest region to live. I work for a company that believes everything I believe - we're made of the same fibre .
This didn't happen by accident. I worked strategically, every step of the way. I'm now able to fulfill my dreams of doing something I love which came out of hiring a business coach and working on my aligning my life purpose and values.
Coaching is GOLD.
Getting real. Digging deep. Making positive changes.
Coaching is about you. It may help hold you accountable, be a sounding board for your brilliant ideas or be there for advice on how to take the next steps.
The BEST thing about coaching is you make progress every session.
Inch by inch, you get closer to realizing all of your dreams, with full support along the way. My coaching paid for itself 10-fold in promotions, achieving performance goals and doing what I love every day.
Now let me guess a little bit about you...
I know we'll work well together because:
Let's get in touch. I invite you to connect! We’ll have a chat and get to know each other. We'll identify your goals and where you want to get to. We can then plan out a course of action that will get the momentum rolling and the stars aligned!
I'm the President of Vancouver Island Fitness on Vancouver Island. I have a BA in English Literature & a BAH in Women's Studies, both from Queen's University in Kingston, Ontario. I've spent the last 12 years working in the health and fitness industry where I've spent many years developing my skills as a coach, mentor and people-builder. I've done this while working alongside my husband as an entrepreneur, where we have worked together on several online business while traveling the world and having the opportunity to live in Asia.
I’ve always had a desire to connect the dots, seek happiness and have the opportunity to play to my strengths. This desire is combined with a deep passion for helping others (hence being in the fitness industry). Two years ago, I took a chance and moved my entire life out to the West Coast, to follow my dreams. That’s when I started down a path that would lead me to identify the components of a fulfilling and happy life and it was truly magically how everything fell into place. It wasn't that everything automatically fell into place. It was more about knowing how to create alignment and what would create fulfillment. I'd been focused on the wrong areas for many years - I'd always assumed money and success would fill the void.
That's when I discovered that other powerful women I knew shared this feeling of searching for meaning and fulfilment in their life and careers. And it planted a seed. I could give back the gift I'd been given. And create a unique service that is totally me: Professional coaching with a Business Coach, CEO & Happiness Expert all-in-one.
For the past two years, I’ve been supporting women who are wanting to develop themselves, develop their business or who are starting a new chapter and want a career by design. It’s been humbling and rewarding to have several of them reach out to to tell me what a difference I have made in their lives. I live to help others feel energized, buoyant, hopeful and full of life.
It’s all about you and what you want to accomplish.
