Ashley Wray on Imposter Syndrome & Wellness When You’re Hustlin’
Crush it in your career, live with confidence, do all the self care and don’t forget to smile! Women are balancing more than ever before between career, personal life, health & happiness. Ashley Wray is the founder and CEO of wildly successful Mala Collective and in this episode she gets real about what wellness looks like when you’re also hustlin’.
Ashley runs the biz, designs their beautiful collection of mala beads, crystal kits, and meditation cushions. She travels frequently working with artisans in Asia (from Bali to India to Nepal) to create products supporting a mindfulness and meditation practice.
Since starting Mala Collective in 2011, Ashley has taught meditation across North America, taken meditation trainings from LA to NY to India and Bali.
