Has there ever been a better time to decide what our lives should look like? We are emerging from a once-in-a-century cataclysm where our lives were upended, our communities remade and our priorities readjusted. Now as the call to return to “normal” grows more insistent, we get to ask the question: what does “normal” look like? Did the old normal serve me? What do I want my new normal to be? And what will that mean for my career, my community, and my family? These are the fundamental questions to building our lives – and now, rebuilding them. As a therapist and coach, Shoshanna Hecht has been wrestling with these very questions in her practice – and now, on this podcast. With guests from all walks of life including media, culture, politics, tech, business & activism, Shoshanna examines the overlap of our goals, relationships, boundaries and priorities, and how we can navigate them all with self-awareness and intention. What do we want our lives to look like? Welcome to Your New Life Blend.
Ashley Louise wants women to have it all. She wants women to have all the money, all the freedom, all the promotions, all the confidence, all the joy, and all the options. With her partner (and wife) Claire Wasserman, Ashley has built Ladies Get Paid into a juggernaut of resources to help women advance professionally and financially, and recognize – and be recognized for! – our value and our worth.
In addition to building the company together, in the past few years Ashley and Claire have pivoted a business built primarily on live events, moved across the country, gotten married, and embarked on the alternatingly challenging, frustrating and rewarding process of conceiving a child together (successfully! Claire is now pregnant). You’d think that might be a pretty decent excuse to coast, but in true YNLB form, Ashley is constantly iterating, looking ahead to where she wants her and her family to be, and what new things she should be trying to get them there, and how she can learn from all of it and bring the good stuff back to her LGP community.
In this episode of Your New Life Blend, host Shoshanna Hecht takes a deep dive with Ashley about all of it – making the big life changes, trying new things, getting over the fear that was holding her back, and why it’s the best bet ever to put women front and center.
