Ashley Stahl is a counterterrorism professional turned career coach, spokesperson, and author of the bestselling book, “You Turn: Get Unstuck, Discover Your Direction, and Design Your Dream Career.” In this interesting episode, Ashley and Drew chat about Ashley’s story, how she went from a counterterrorism contractor to a career coach and publisher, as well as many golden lessons that were learned along the way. If you are feeling stuck in a rut, or have ever wondered what may be holding you back from living the life of your dreams, then you don’t want to miss this episode!


[05:00] How Ashley found herself pursuing counterterrorism – even working in the Pentagon – and why she chose to pursue an alternate career path.

[11:40] Why break-throughs often feel like a breakdown, and how to overcome the fear of being your true self.

[20:45] The messy parts of self-discovery, why the hard parts of life often teach us the most if we are willing to pay attention, and why you should never be your own kidnapper!

[30:35] Some practical tips to help you make a permanent lifestyle change, rather than a temporary one, and ways to apply Ashley’s lessons to more than just your health.

[36:25] Ashley’s services, where you can find more of her work, and what she has planned for the future!
