Hello! I’m Ashlee and I am a Holistic Nutritionist and Wellness Influencer with Simplholistic. I work full-time at Simplholistic to create protocols, recipes and videos that help women live a seamlessly healthy lifestyle. Women’s hormones and gut health are what I specialize in, particularly autoimmune disease.
I grew up in Alaska with my mom, brother and sister. My family was pretty broken and lacked ingenuity and entrepreneurial spirits. We lived paycheck to paycheck but my sweet mom did everything she could to watch us soar and excel. Looking back, all of the hardships and financial suppression brought me to where I am now. We can play the victim in life but I prefer to use my difficulties as rocket fuel!
Where it all began:
When I was 16, I was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis, Celiac Disease and a host of other immunological deficiencies. I knew NOTHING about nutrition or alternative medicine so, NyQuil and antibiotics it was. It didn’t take long for my body to start shutting down. Luckily - shortly after - I found the world of holistic healing and changed my life forever. I enrolled in college for nutrition for myself and couldn’t put the books and research papers down. Since then, I have healed myself (still working on it!) and helped thousands of women to remove the barriers keeping them from being well.
The Passion behind the business:
My job is incredible. Each day I get to see “infertile” women become pregnant, PCOS clients gain their energy back and highly immunodeficient women get their livelihood back. I get to facilitate healing for women all around the globe and watch them KICK BUTT once their back to their best selves.
The Motivation on the hard days:
My clients, followers and family members. I believe God gave me this gift and unique ability to retain massive amounts of nutritional and scientific data for a purpose. If I decided to throw in the towel, who knows how many women would miss out on being well.
You can hustle but if you aren’t working smart, you are going to burn out. If you want to work for yourself, treat it like a real job. Clock in and out. Have a lunch break and don’t allow yourself to work 80 hours for no money. MAKE A PLAN. Seriously, everything needs a blueprint. It doesn’t matter if you have the best solutions in the world, if you aren’t marketing them properly or getting them seen, you won’t make money.
The Experienced Advice:
I need a team. You can make it some distance by yourself but outsourcing is key to success (and sanity). My profession is nutrition work, not bookkeeping or handout design. Just outsource and don’t look back.
