Today’s guest is Ashlie Molstad. Ashlie is one of the most successful Beachbody coaches of all time, having earned the prestigious top coach award two years in a row. This achievement was no small feat, given that there are hundreds of thousands of coaches. However, even though Ashlie found tremendous success as a coach, she felt called to do something else and left the Beachbody island and pivoted to becoming a life coach and hosting the “Insource” podcast. This pivot has come with many challenges and we dive into it all today on the podcast. In this episode, we discuss Ashlie’s rise to success in a competitive industry and how that same rise to success also led to addictions to things like achievement and external validation. We discuss how these addictions led to her swimming in a river of “misery” after she left beachbody and how she bounced back from all of that. We also chat about her struggles with her mental health and not liking herself, how to overcome the opinions of others, why she is reevaluating her relationship with alcohol and so much more.
