Do you have a passion project that you would love to turn into a business?

Asha Holland once strived to be perfect and couldn’t see how her pursuit of perfectionism was holding her back in many facets of her life and career. She obsessed over having a ‘perfect body’ and when she finally reached her goal, she never felt more lost.

So, she embarked on a soul-searching journey and discovered her true passion wasn’t to be perfect, but to be happy and to help other women love themselves and their bodies. In this episode of our ‘Before You’re Ready Series,’ Asha talks about how she built a powerful community of like-minded women and launched her business, Alternatively Healthy, where she educates and empowers women to build body confidence.

In this episode, we chatted about:

  • What sparked Asha to develop a passion for helping women love themselves and their bodies
  • The problem with striving to be ‘perfect’ all the time
  • How Asha launched her company, Alternatively Healthy
  • Why Asha started her business before she was ready
  • How Asha promoted her business in the early days
  • Why you should never underestimate the power of a small community
  • How Asha got Alternatively Healthy off the ground
  • How being a mother has impacted Asha’s life

‘A Girl in Progress’ is available as a podcast on our website and as a video interview series on our YouTube channel–so make sure to subscribe to both to keep up with new episodes!
