@GirlPowerHour Feature on @1loveAsh
My name is Ash Brown and my company is Ash Said It LLC. We are a full service public speaking boutique. I host receptions, fashion expos as well as upscale soirées. I have over 10+ years of experience as a radio announcer & I've recently honorably discharged from the Military. I had no plans to build a company. The thought never even crossed my mind. The past few years have been tough. Being a full time caregiver is a lot. I took care of my mom for 3+ years & I would easily do it again. My mother never taught me how to be a lady. She showed me with her actions. She never let anyone take advantage of her meek yet resilient spirit. Thank God inherited that spark!
I buried my mom in 2014. That was the most difficult thing I've ever done in my entire existence. I was lost. My heart was no longer in military service. I needed to leave but I had no blueprint on where to go. I did many odd jobs that year. Helped build multiple brands & had nothing to show for it.
Then one day a light bulb went off in my head. Why the heck am I wasting time helping people disinterested in helping themselves? Why don't I pour my 13+ years of industry experience into something I can call my own. That's when Ash Said It was born! This company is my baby. I believe in it more than I've ever believed in anything. Confirmation came when I filed with the state & made an informal announcement to past colleagues. Instead of talking me out of it, they encouraged me. They helped with themes & marketing strategies. I felt so blessed. Not everybody was happy for me. I had some 'friends' that completely discouraged the idea. Those negative spirits had to exit. I only have room for positive energy. If there is an idea sitting on your heart, you owe it to yourself to follow through with it! People don't always support. Sometimes you have to be your own 'Cheerleader' and that's ok. Never stop! Never give up! Keep pushing! I hope this helps someone follow their heart. Check out www.ashsaidit.com & follow me across social media @1loveAsh #girlpower
