About john c ashworth

About John C Ashworth, aka johnny renaissance 🙂

There’s a reason they call him, “johnny renaissance.”

John C Ashworth is a modern day renaissance man & bohemian athlete who has amassed a wide variety of skills and expertise in many different subjects including, fitness, sales, marketing, video production, copy writing, exercise physiology, clinical exercise physiology, fishing, parenting, buying cars without getting ripped off, blogging and content marketing and creation.

The really good news is that John is a teacher at heart and has committed to sharing as much as he possibly can right here on his blog, the ash flash. You are encouraged to look around because inside this beautiful work of passion and love there lie insights and strategies that have the real and true potential to accelerate both your business and personal growth.

I am in constant pursuit of personal growth and how to combine modern technology with effective communication in ways that make us all more effective at what we do. I can help you tell your story more effectively, and as a result, be more effective with your small business marketing and sales efforts.

My professional background is unique. At the heart of my work is a passionate and forward-thinking salesman, marketing maniac, writer and copywriter, video personality and fitness professional, who loves the opportunity for new challenges that call on these diverse talents.

If you are local here in Madison, WI, you might recognize John from his regular “Fitness Friday” television appearances with Leigh Mills on NBC 15. That segment ran for ten years from 2006-2016. You can find a few of those Fitness Friday archives by clicking here.

Following twenty plus years helping thousands of people reach their health and fitness goals, I decided to pursue my passion for sales and marketing, and copywriting and communication.

I have strategically put these talents to work for me as an account executive for Frazer Consultants, where we help funeral directors and funeral homes leverage modern technology in ways that help them serve their local families and communities in important and effective ways.

I post regularly to my blog, the ash flash, on the topics of personal growth, sales, marketing, copywriting, with the goal of inspiring you to be and accomplish MORE.

It is my sincere hope that in connecting with me, reading my blog, and working with me as your account executive at Frazer Consultants, that you will grow stronger, fitter, and more powerful as a human being, and then take these improvements into your own mission, work and local spheres of influence so that we can all realize the benefits of Kaizen or constant improvement.
