“If it’s not a hell yes, it’s a hell no.”

Knowing yourself in business will change the way that you work, the way that you move in your business, the things that you accept, and how much money you make.

This conversation is one of my most favorite things to talk about. Taking assessments and understanding how you actually operate in a world full of people who are different from you can be transformative.

When you find yourself operating in a way that’s like everyone else or the way that you think you should operate, it starts to mess with you internally. It makes you second guess what you’re doing, why you’re doing it, and if you should be doing it.

The Importance of Assessments

As dull as it sounds, assessments are one of the most exciting things. They help you figure out how you operate, who you are, and what you’re about. There are various types of assessments, such as Myers-Briggs, Enneagram, Human Design, Astrology, and the Colby Assessment. These tools can be super fun and always fun to learn more about yourself.

My Favorite Assessments

I’m excited to talk about my favorite two assessments: the Colby assessment and Human Design. The Colby assessment tells you what your modus operandi (MO) is, helping you understand how you operate when you’re striving towards a goal. Your Human Design tells you why you do it. Merging the two can help you make better and faster decisions, which is crucial for business owners.

Becoming a Better Leader Through Self-Knowledge

These assessments and knowing yourself help you become a better leader, which is essential when building a company. As someone looking to move to millions of dollars, you won’t be the only one doing the implementation. Becoming a better leader will propel your business forward, help you build a better team, and understand who should be on your team. It helps you figure out what you’re going to deal with and what you’re not going to deal with. Knowing yourself can help you build better systems and understand your values, which is crucial for building a successful business.

Extracting Actionable Tips

This episode is brimming with practical advice that you can implement in your own business. Here are some actionable tips shared by Ashleigh:

  1. Take Assessments: Start with the Colby Assessment and Human Design to gain insights into your natural instincts and motivations. These tools can provide a roadmap for how you should operate in your business.

  2. Align Your Tasks with Your Strengths: Once you understand your strengths, delegate tasks that don’t align with them. For example, if you’re not a detail-oriented person, hire someone who is to handle those tasks.

  3. Create a Schedule That Works for You: Ashley shares her unique weekly and yearly schedule, which includes no meetings on Mondays, a mid-week break on Wednesdays, and specific months off for planning and recharging. Tailor your schedule to fit your energy levels and work style.

  4. Set Boundaries: Learn to say no to tasks and opportunities that don’t align with your strengths or values. This will help you avoid burnout and stay focused on what truly matters.

  5. Embrace Your Unique Style: Don’t feel pressured to conform to traditional business practices if they don’t work for you. Use your assessments to guide your decisions and create a business that reflects your unique style and values.
