Ep 16 – Ash Phillips
What do you want to do when you grow up? This question was one that Ash always struggled to answer and, like many of us, often avoided thinking about. It was when he dropped out of university to start his first business however, that he realised that the answer to this question wasn’t important. In fact, the only thing that was, was learning how to channel his passion into work and follow his gut.
