Follow your

– unless you're a serial killer

If you’re ~over~ your job and you’re thinking about trying something new but you’re feeling ALL the self-doubt and everyone kind of rolls their eyes at you and you’re not entirely sure what you’re doing but you need a big-ass dose of self-confidence and want to come out punching and defeat all the naysayers and make millions of feel-good dollars with your creative passions while shouting ‘IN YO’ FACE SUCKAS!’–THIS IS THE BOOK FOR YOU.

“If you’re looking for good Christian advice. Move. On.” “This is the book of the decade.” “This is the best Audible book I’ve ever listened to.” “Ridiculously entertaining.” “The unwholesome advice you wish your grandma gave you!” “One of the best books I’ve read in this space ever (and I’ve read a lot of them).” “100% bullshit free.” “A book for women who hate their 9-5…” “Not your typical self-help book.” “A must-read for women who don’t want to follow the status quo.”

This book is the

antidote for…

CHAPTER ONE

GOD.

*puffs on cigar*

Now there’s a fun-filled topic. If we were really ambitious, we’d just dive right into the most controversial subject imaginable, given that this book contains all sorts of controversial ideas and it doesn’t get any more polite from here. (Now might be a good time to fetch the vodka…and maybe a defibrillator.)

Don’t worry, this isn’t a book about God, nor is it a book about Ryan Gosling—second in command. But it is a book about authority and becoming your own. It’s not always easy to “follow your dreams”—and ride off on a magical flying carpet made of SweetTarts and sugar plum fairies. It’s not easy to trust yourself radically, or make bold choices that other people will not agree with, or “live life on your own terms.” It’s not easy to roll up and be all, “yayyyyyyy, I’m going to quit my job and be an artist!” or “yayyyyyy, I’m going to open my own bookshop!” or “yayyyyyy, I’m going to skip around the Swiss Alps and make cheese in a loincloth and yodel in the afternoons and tell my overbearing sister to shove it!” Even in an age when all of these options are more available to us than ever, most of us are really just drifting along every day, trying not to get cancer. But even when we do dare break the mold and try something new, the world throws some serious side eye.

Who does she think she is?
It won’t last.
This is just another one of her “big ideas.”

If you don’t finish this book and feel like a badass bitch walking away from an explosion…did you even read it?

Hilariously crude yet poignantly straight forward

Hilariously crude yet poignantly straightforward. A must-read for any entrepreneur, someone thinking they want to be an entrepreneur, woman, mom, anyone who has been in a relationship – anyone with a pulse really. This book is layered with seeds of inspiration. I told 10 people to get it within 5 minutes of completing. Highly suggest!

One of the top five most influential books I've read–and I've read them all. No, really.

Ash Ambirge is moxy, grit, sass and tenacity all rolled into one rip-roaring good time. She rebukes the good girl programming we ALL had forced on us and roots tirelessly for the quiet girl in the back to insist on her own brilliance. It also gave me a bulletproof method for dealing with imposter syndrome–WORTH ITS WEIGHT IN GOLD, that tidbit, ladies.

I took my time with this book not wanting it to end, not by choice … but because every chapter had me mentally “oh damn”-ing. But today I downloaded the audible version of this book to finish off the last 2 hours of this hilariously witty, face slapping, world shaking-ly wholesome book. Ash is a legend. I am so glad I picked up this book.

Stellar Advice on Being an Entrepreneur and Brave Human

You 👏 Need 👏 This 👏 Book

Ash pulls off a phenomenal combo of page turning memoir and unbelievable business advice. I’ve been a long time reader of her blog and make a “squeee” noise every time I receive one of her emails. Her book takes her humor and brilliance to a whole new level.

If you need a kick in the pants…get this book.
If you need a story where you’re rooting for the underdog…get this book.
If you ever feel like an imposter as you go for your dream… get this book.
