Today’s guest on the Shane Sams Show is Ashley Drummonds - the founder of ABS Pancakes (abspancakes.com) and she got a Deal on Shark Tank with Daymond John!
On this amazing episode of the show you’ll learn:
You may recognize Ashley Drummonds from her episode on the show Shark Tank pitching ABS pancakes (https://abspancakes.com). But, Ashley’s love for fitness started long before the protein pancakes!
In college she got heavily involved in personal fitness, understanding her own mental discipline, and sharing that with other people. About 6 months into her first personal training job she realized she wanted to be self-employed - so began her journey into entrepreneurship!
Ashley Drummond’s genius idea for her protein pancakes came from her love of pancakes, her love of nutrition, her love of baking, her love of making food that makes people happy, and seeing a problem she could solve in the marketplace!
Questions leave clues. Success leaves clues, too. If you see that you are fulfilling a need - that’s a sign you should probably see where it leads!
You’re probably wondering, “how did Ashley Drummonds get on Shark Tank?” It’s pretty simple, she Googled it. She didn’t have to jump through hoops, pull any strings. She literally just Googled how to get on the show (so you can too)!
How can your hustle help you? Ashley Drummond’s main break didn’t come form Google analytics. It came from her hard work getting found from a major online influencer.
But, had she not put in the hard work none of that would have happened. Success doesn’t happen unless you put in the work. It’s not always SEO or Google Analytics that works best.
Just as Ashley Drummonds said, you only see the dart that stuck on the board - you don’t see the 400 laying on the ground that didn’t stick!
If Ashley Drummonds had to do it all over again, she would go into Shark Tank with fun on her mind more than the exposure she hoped to gain.
