Hello and welcome!

IMG_20171109_163122I’m Ashley and I created Good Talk Ash as a platform to write about the things on my mind. This website is where I gather my thoughts and share them with those seeking similar connection (it’s also where I host my nonprofit yoga mat company, FlowMats).

I write about a lot of stuff, sometimes useful, sometimes therapeutic, but always relevant to my most immediate interests. I guess this blog is the way I express my creativity, keep it real, and play with or explore what’s on my mind.

If this speaks to you, I invite you to poke around the blog, check out my ever-expanding reading list, and leave a comment when you get a thought or feeling. The conversation is always open and you are forever welcome to join, no matter how old the post! It’s embarrassingly validating to know someone other than my mother reads this.

A little about me, to get us acquainted. I live in the San Francisco Bay Area with my husband and 3 cats. I am a dual-certified health and life coach, MBA graduate student, MOOC fanatic, bookworm, plant-based trained chef, Kiva microlender, vegan cheesemonger, cryptocurrency nerd, tea enthusiast, nonprofit founder, registered yoga teacher, and CA licensed real estate agent. Phew!

This blog kind of feels like the perfect space to bring it all together. At 29, I’m still figuring myself out, which is why it feels like I’m being pulled in a million directions all the time.

Thanks for stopping by Good Talk Ash. Take what you want and leave the rest 🙂
