Are They Telling You You’re Crazy?

In: Feeling Dead and Uninspired

My best friend since the first grade (a brilliant graphic designer) just surprised me with this ever-so-cool poster, out of a post I recently wrote titled, “Battle Cry of the Crazies: For Anyone Hustling For More.”

Had to share.

And now, it's Tuesday afternoon. I have a meeting with Miss Lit Agent (big plans coming up with the memoir–to be shared soon!), and I'm drinking champagne at the moment (which is the best idea I've had in a while.)  Tonight I'm teaching the very last week of the TMFproject Copywriting workshop (*tear!*). And tomorrow I'm bombing around Buenos Aires some more, breakin' hearts and takin' names, before heading back to Chile on Friday.

What are you up to today?

More appropriately, what are you doing that they would call you crazy for?

The crazier the better.

LET'S GET IT.

Hugs and a mark-inducing slap on the ass,

Ash

P.S. Got graphic design needs? Contact me and I'll hook you up with Maria, who did this poster.

P.P.S. Please fucking pin that. I'm just so excited about it.

The Real Value of Travel (Come Sneak Away to the Beaches of Costa Rica, If You Dare)

A Sexy Story With a Lesson We sit in near silence, the only interruptions being an occasional mojito-induced outburst of nervous laughter, the sound of my silver chandelier earrings gently clinkering together, and the relentless tropical rains that steadily pelt the top of the canvas roof of the 4×4 automobile we are in. It’s shamelessly […]

One Big, Sexy Question for Instant Clarification On: What the Hell Do I Want to Do With My Life?

Sep 7, 2018

I was reading something on the Internet yesterday that was praising this woman’s work, and I thought to myself: there’s such a difference between doing work and having work. (And yes, I italicized “such” in my mind.) To do work is to take on a task, whoever’s task it might be. To have work, though—work […]

How to Start a Revolution (Or 3 Ways to Change the World)

See that baby face up there?  That’s my friend Karol–pronounced like Carl–who is a writer, traveler, & all around adventure-seeking bad ass over at Ridiculously Extraordinary.  Right now he’s living in Poland, but before that he was downing noodles in Thailand, dodging kangaroos in Australia, and doing the zen thing in India, to name a […]

I'm a Bad Influence on Women

Hey, I’m Ash! Twenty years ago I was a small town girl growing up in a trailer park in rural Pennsylvania. Fifteen years ago, I lost my family and everything I knew right as I became the first to graduate college. Fourteen years ago, I found myself leaving everything behind for a new life in the city where I could be “normal.” Ten years ago I realized normal was the most disappointing thing that ever happened to me. Nine years ago I quit my job in advertising and pursued my dreams as a creative writer. Eight years ago, I built a 6-figure business doing what I love using nothing more than the Internet and my voice. And now, today, I’m the founder of The Middle Finger Project, an irreverent media co. that helps other women find their voice and teaches them to use it to build whatever the f*ck they want to. With a book coming out with Penguin Random House in February 2020 (YASSS, WE’RE A PRODUCT IN TARGET!) I’m proud to be a bad influence on women and guide them into doing something disobediently brave with their life and their career.

But no serial killers. I promise I won’t send those.
