A few years ago Ashley Hasty, creator of Hasty Book List, was burning out, trying to make a 4-hour (each way) commute work with a job she loved in a career she loved teaching fashion history - and she needed something to help relieve her anxiety and help her focus on the positives. So she leaned on something creative to distract herself on the long drives and help her find joy again.
She began listening to audiobooks and sharing her thoughts her blog, one book at a time. Soon she started interviewing authors and book jacket designers. And after a while authors and publishers started sending her books to read and share with her audience. In the midst of this, she hit a breaking point with her 9-5. So she gave herself permission to work on Hasty Book List exclusively and found she loved it as a business too. Today Ashley works part-time as an consultant for Universities on fashion history and manages Hasty Book List, where she blogs, does bookstore tours, interviews authors, and more!
Today she's sharing how she managed her burnout, stayed open to possibilities, and ended up turning her creative outlet into a daily blog and business.Read More
