Quantum Coaching, Point #1: Ashley shares how she began as a manifestation coach and how teaching others about the craft of coaching came into existence.
Ashley’s journey has been a complete evolution. Initially, she didn’t understand the online space, so she started her business in person. She eventually broke in as a manifestation coach, where this would be the start of Ashley finding what she was supposed to be teaching others. For some time, she found herself uncertain and confused as to what she was supposed to be helping others with. She didn’t have a clear vision or transformation she was offering. One day, Ashley was set to speak at a live event hosted by Jen Casey, who is a coach that helps online coaches build their business. Originally, Ashley planned to speak about money mindset manifestation. However, she had an idea to speak more about the craft behind coaching instead.
Jen had told her that was an amazing idea, and they ended up staying awake that night creating the framework behind the concept. This was when Ashley realized that this was her niche and this was her calling. The next day, Ashley went up in front of the audience and spoke about the craft of coaching. The response from this was incredible, and it taught Ashley a lot. When she first got up on stage, the audience recognized her but when Ashley asked them how she could help them with transformations, they weren’t sure. After speaking and getting defined on the solution she was offering, she was immediately hired by a couple of people to privately teach them how to be the most amazing coaches and create life-changing transformations. This would result in Quantum Coaching Academy, it was complete destiny and fate for Ashley.
Quantum Coaching, Point #2: Ashley dives in and explains the meaning behind the craft of coaching.
There are a lot of people who are stepping into the coaching industry, and this industry feels big at times but it’s also really small. It will keep growing because people are waking up to their purpose of being here to help people. While that’s great, Ashley shares that the problem with this is that a lot of new coaches come in and decide to teach based on a transformational experience in their own life. So they’re deciding to teach from their personal development. They need to remember that there’s a strategy for taking someone through transformation. Most of the time, it’s not about what you’ve been through. When people go through something and share it with others, sometimes this method may not be the best as it’s taking the focus off the client.
Ashley also shares that before anyone dives into coaching and wants to learn how to enhance their craft, they must understand the true definition of coaching. Coaching is not friendship, it’s not about sharing personal stories, or mentorship, or even consulting. It can be mixed with all those, but coaching is ultimately holding space for transformation. Coaching is helping your client discover themselves and access their unlimited potential. They can't do that if you fill the space with your own story of transformation. Coaching is asking powerful questions that don’t just end in yes or no answers. Coaching is building that rapport with one another and training the client to go into a high vibrational state of energy.

Quantum Coaching, Point #3: Ashley shares the formula that should be behind each coaching call.
Ashley says there’s a formula for each coaching call. When you’re entering a coaching call, first and foremost, you want to make sure your energy is grounded. You want to do this so that you’re able to hold space for the client and not get sucked into their energy. Once you protect your energy and get into the call, make sure you are grounded and not frantic. If something happens during the call, whether it’s a Zoom glitch or your doorbell rings, you never want to come back to your desk and be in a frantic state in front of your client. It shouldn’t matter what happened before the call, ground yourself, and pull yourself together.
When the client enters the call from this frantic state, which is highly likely, it’s easy to get sucked into this. The session can go somewhere that’s not linear or focused, so instead, acknowledge and validate what they say. Then ask them if that's what they wish to work on today. Make sure that’s what they want to focus on. This is such a simple question, but it ensures the call is client-directed and clarifies what they want to work on. Most coaches stop there, but Ashley says you should go above and beyond. Proceed by not only asking what they wish to work on, bucra
