About Ashley Lauren


I like to think that I'm bursting at the seams with personality and out-of-the-norm ideas. I like to consider things from a different angle. I wrote a blog that is meant to inspire people, open minds, or just generally give someone something to read. I'm always interested to converse with people about different topics mainly because it helps me to learn new things I haven't been exposed to yet.

"Employers Wanted" - Job seekers posting their "employer requirements".
Deborah, Those are great things to look for in an employer. I, too, always like to know the reason "why" we do certain things. I think it helps get a better understanding of the business and its processes. Additionally, this knowledge can allow employees to be innovative in offering solutions that can make the processes better. Having outlines and goals can help employees easily know the expectations and figure out a game plan to get to that point. Micromanagement can hinder performance, so I would agree with you on wanting to be treated like an adult. However, I would like a manager that makes themselves available to help if I needed assistance if I get to a point that I'm stuck. Thank you so much for commenting!

What advice would you give a younger you?
Don't focus so hard on achieving certain things (life goals, career goals, etc) becuase you may blind yourself from things that are a better fit for you. Keep your eyes and mind open. Don't get down about the things that don't work out, you'll be surprised at what opportunities come about once you stop being depressed about your best laid-plans that failed. Stay humble, the only thing you can count on in life is that everything is bound to change at one point or another. If all the doors of opportunity are closed, break through a wall and create your own passage to opportunities. Disconnect yourself from anyone or anything that brings you down. It is not your job to fix other people's bad habits. Don't get sucked down a dark road trying to do that. They're perfectly capable of figuring out their own life. Don't let negative words get to your head, you know you better than they know you. If they can't see all the great things you are, then find people that do. Find a company that matches your personal values. Find a company that has a company culture you will enjoy working in. Trust your gut, it typically knows what is right or wrong before your heart and head confuses you. Take chances when you're young- this is the time you can afford to faill or mess up. Don't let anything or anyone take away your optimisim no matter how ridiculous or naive it seems... at least your happy. Dont' be scared to believe in something and make things happen, even if you're going in it alone. Don't let the hardships of life make you forget your dreams and passions. Don't lie to yourself. Stay true and figure out a plan of action based on that. Remember that it is a huge world out there and you can find the things you hope for. And if you don't, you have the capabilities to create it.
