Let life pass you by while you daydream about doing something you’re passionate about…but never do.

For Disobedient Women

The Emergency Money Workshop: REGISTER FREE HERE >

BLINDFOLDED PILLOW FIGHTS. That’s what people are resorting to. Putting their hoodies on backwards with the hood part over their face and then trying to whack their spouse with a giant down-stuffed rectangle as they bumble around the living room. (And somehow managing not to knock over the five-hundred porcelain gnome figurines, which I just assume these people have in their house.)

I watched that yesterday and you know what I thought? These people need an online business! Or I need an offline business (except just kidding). I realized, in that moment, that “real” people who have “real” jobs really can’t do much from home and they must be so scared—and meanwhile, here’s me chugging along with my business as if nothing had ever happened. My days are not interrupted, and my online systems are not interrupted, which also means that my income is not interrupted. And that, more than anything, has been the biggest upside to this thing that I built eleven years ago: it makes me (mostly) unfuckwithable.

But I know that’s not the case for everyone. And I know that there are also plenty of freelancers and business owners whose businesses have been wildly interrupted because they either do work in-person (like massage therapists), or they’re in events (like photographers), or they’re in tourism (like our other business is here in Costa Rica). And it’s fucking scary—especially financially.

So that’s why I sent out an email a couple of days ago announcing that I would be donating my time to help anyone who is in that situation, free of charge, to come up with some creative ways to generate more revenue for your biz by doing things you might not normally do. (But that'll feel generous and helpful, not tone deaf.) It'll be in online workshop format—again, completely free—and I’ve now got the details for you, listed below. So if you are someone who:

  • Is having clients or customers cancel (i.e. wedding photographers, tour guides)
  • Had to cancel your own stuff (i.e. yoga instructors, jewelry-making workshops)
  • Can't see clients face-to-face (i.e. real estate, hair stylists)
  • Can't travel to an event you were scheduled to be at (i.e. public speakers)
  • Can't put on an event you were hosting (i.e. retreats, masterminds, book tours)
  • And anyone in general who works for themselves and is anxious about earning money in an uncertain climate

This workshop is a gift for you.

I’ll talk you through some creative money-making ideas and give you some scripts to use so you can get the confidence you need to try something unexpected with your clients, customers and followers.

You can register now, completely free of charge. I'm calling it “The Emergency Money Workshop,” and it’s taking place online this Friday, March 27th, at 11am ET—but I’ll send out the recording on Monday, so even if you can’t make it, just register yourself anyway and that way you’ll get the follow-up recording sent to your email.


This is for our community, and I hope it will be helpful to you during such uncertain times. If you know me, or you read my book, you know that I’m ALL about becoming radically self-reliant, and here’s just one more reason to add to the list. Who knows when there’s going to be a world-wide pandemic to put a real wrench into your plans! No, but really. This is so scary for so many, but I can promise you this: finding creative ways to make money happens to be my specialty. And a lifetime working in online business has taught me that there's always a way to HELP PEOPLE—as long as you're willing to ditch the traditional way of doing things, and try a unique approach, instead. One that'll lift everybody up.

I got you. I got you. I got you.

See you on Friday.

Love and definitely some real gin today,

Business & Money

Because let's face it: asking for money is hard. And running your own business takes thick skin and all new kinds of smarts. Good thing there's a playlist for that.


Creativity & Creating

Starving artist who? The Internet has changed the game forever. Now you can create your own chances—and make more money than ever with your art—starting now.


Mental Game & Confidence

Go, go, go. If not you, who? The world is relying on you to stand up and create the thing that only you can. Your story, your way, your perspective is unique, and we need you to show up, right now.


Overwhelm & Defeat

There are going to be days when you'll want to give up. There will be days when you'll start to doubt EVERYTHING—including, most notably, yourself. I got you, babe. I GOT YOU.


Women & Bravery

Circumstances are not life sentences. It's about learning how to become self-made—and never depend on anyone else again.


Writing & Words

What you SAY is always more important than what you SELL. You can have the best idea in the world, but if we can't package & pitch in a way that turns heads? It falls on deaf ears. And there is no greater tragedy.



In Case There Was Any Confusion, I Am Not Yogurt from Spaceballs. (Though We’re About the Same Height.)

I’m Ash! I’m an author, internet entrepreneur, creative writer, and advocate for women being brave & doing disobedient things with their life and career. Fifteen years ago I was a small town girl growing up in a trailer park in rural Pennsylvania when I lost both of my parents. Fourteen years ago, I left for Philadelphia on a mission to discover what it meant to live a good life and do work you’re proud of. Twelve years ago I realized that the rules were made up by a guy named Ted who has a dog named Wedgie. Eleven years ago I quit my shiny middle-class job in advertising to strike it out as a freelance writer. Ten years ago I cracked the code and made my first $103,000 as a creative writer on the internet. Nine years ago, I doubled my income—and then kept doubling it—and started traveling, working from my laptop. And now, a decade later, I run The Middle Finger Project, an irreverent media co. that helps other women find their voice and use it to build whatever the f*ck they want.


If you aren’t on the email list, you’re practically standing on the savanna wondering “where’d everybody go?!” My emails are where *everything* happens—even though Instagram think it’s cute. 😉 If you need help believing in your fucking self again, need the confidence to pull the trigger on YOUR middle finger project, need some really great money-making advice, and need to someone to help you GO, GO, GO—I’m your girl, and this is your crew. Enter your email now to kick start an all-new era for yourself, and welcome to The 👏 Middle 👏 Finger 👏 Project.
