Hersday Spotlight 09.06.18

Hello my loves! I hope everyone is having a great week thus far. As you know, today is HERSDAY, the day dedicated to all my #ladybosses making strides as entrepreneurs, and looking doing it. Let's give a warm #HERSday salute to my soror [line sister to be exact], Ashley Talford. (Owner of Rawthentic+).

"If you’re curious about the name, it simply derives from everything that she extends to others: A lifestyle of all things originating from its most natural, Organic, Minimally processed and freshly pressed state."

Ashley is a native of Memphis, TN who graduated from Middle TN State University and Dowling College with a Bachelors in Mass Communication and Masters in Management and Leadership. She also attained a Plant Based Nutrition Certificate, from T. Colin Campbell Center for Nutrition Studies and eCornell.

Her inspiration for creating Rawthentic+ came shortly after the birth of a new plant based lifestyle. Ashley’s transition began with a meatless challenge in December 2016 and her view of eating animal products was left in the rear, and she has not looked back. As she became more engulfed in research she was amazed at how misinformed she was about the food that she was accustomed to consuming throughout the years. During her journey, a greater appreciation for the things in which she experienced through the vast variety of options that nature has to offer, provided her with a passion that blossomed.

As with anything else regarding one’s health, being Plant based takes dedication, patience, time and effort. There are times when you don’t have the support of family and friends, but with a newfound self-love and understanding of knowing exactly what you put into your body, living a plant based lifestyle is well worth it.

Health is considered the most valuable and precious asset for every individual. Good health means not only the absence of disease in the body, but the complete physical, mental, social and spiritual well-being of an individual. The biggest myth about a healthy lifestyle is that the reason for doing so is attached to weight loss or the visible physique of a person. Being healthy is not about the instant gratification of filling out your favorite dress, or fitting into those "skinny jeans" in the back of your closet. It is indeed the key to living a long enjoyable life. For those of us who are already on the journey to taking back our bodies and becoming our BEST self, we understand that the first steps are the most difficult. No matter where you are in your journey, Rawthentic+ is prepared to help you!

As a friend, a sister, and a fellow female entrepreneur I am truly a blessed to know Ashley. She's a beautiful soul inside and out. Sister, I am overjoyed for you, your success, and the future that lies ahead. #QueensRise #Healthiswealth #Rawthenticplus
