Does your practice serve your lifestyle goals? Do you even have lifestyle goals? No, I’m not talking about your goal to live a netflix and chill life. I mean, how would you fill your days if you had a choice? Good news, you do have a choice! Today, I chat with Ashley Molson about how she built her life and legal practice around her lifestyle goals. The tips, tricks and strategies she uses to balance her drive to be successful and her desire to life a healthy and well-balanced life.


What you’ll learn:

  • How Ashley prioritized her lifestyle goals
  • Tips for setting boundaries and managing competing goals
  • The routines and habits Ashley cultivates to remain balanced
  • The big financial risk Ashley took in order to pursue her dream
  • The strategies Ashley uses to make big decisions
  • Simple ways to start your own mindfulness practice


Best Advice for Finding Happiness:

“Happiness doesn’t just arrive, it has to be cultivated. You really need to get to a point of self awareness to find where that happiness path is. Self-awareness is the first step to being happy, after that you’ll fight for happiness to come into your life.”
