Driven by his passion to change the world for the better, Ash co-founded YOUNGRY, an entrepreneurship movement for millennials, women, and inclusive entrepreneurs.

He has also interviewed over 500 luminaries including Dr. Drew, FitBody Boot Camp CEO Bedros Keulian, and Dr. Oz.
This week’s episode talks about using meditation to connect with one’s purpose, being mindful of the judgement one places on situations, and what one can learn from situations that keep repeating themselves.
Ash also shares what mindfulness is for him, how people can live fun and productive lives while being mindful, and how to let things go when you’re being too hard on yourself.
For those who want to develop mindfulness, Ash offers this advice, “Before you really understand what is mindfulness, really master this concept of self-awareness.”
