Daily Inspiration: Meet Ashley Dancy

Today we’d like to introduce you to Ashley Dancy.

Hi Ashley, we’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
I am a single mom employed full-time in healthcare that has a passion for crafting & fashion! I have had a love for anything crafty since I can remember! The freedom it gives you to express yourself through “art”, whether it’s drawing, painting, DIY projects, and now… creating handmade clay earrings!

There is a sense of pride that goes into each pair I create. I am also currently working on launching an online boutique (3369 Boutique) in late 2022- early 2023 that specializes in trending boho, western & casual clothing!!

Growing up, I never saw myself starting my own business.

I thought it was for a certain kind of person, maybe by luck and it wasn’t a realistic goal for a small-town girl like me. I have been inspired by so many people around me taking on the roles of entrepreneurs! I hope this inspires at least one person to find something they enjoy doing and to GO FOR IT!

We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
I am newly discovering the ins and outs of starting up my own business, but I would say so far that trying to balance life as a mom and a full-time job while starting a business is very demanding.

Can you tell our readers more about what you do and what you think sets you apart from others?
I have always loved the idea of a small-town boutique and have been so inspired by other boutique owners to take the leap of faith of owning my own!

I am currently working on launching an online boutique (3369 Boutique) that specializes in boho, western clothing, and polymer clay earrings handmade by me!

Where do you see things going in the next 5-10 years?
I plan on shifting from online to having my own space in the next few years where customers can come shop and I can build a rapport with them.

My favorite part of any job I’ve ever had has been getting to know new people!
