Six years ago, I met a guy named Matthew Kimberley—that was my first mistake. I KID, I KID. Matthew’s a fantastic friend (and someone I admire very much as one of the foremost expert sales trainers in the world, that bastard) and I have the privilege of hosting him here in London this week while […]
Stick it out or throw in the towel? Is patience a virtue, or does it make you a fool? Do good things really come to those who wait, or do they come to those who…don’t? We seem to think that time is a predictor of success, but it’s not: enthusiasm is. You could do something […]
I have this one tradition which is going to sound entirely fucking pompous but I’m going to say it, anyway, because there is a point and WE LOVE POINTS. One new pair of designer sunglasses every summer. It’s a small luxury, but one that I greatly enjoy, because the best rewards are the impractical ones; […]
So here’s a real pro tip: when you are wining and dining your brand new client, who has flown from New York City to London exclusively to work with you, and you’re trying to make a really sexy first impression, and you take her to a restaurant that’s been named one of Zagat’s number one […]
So here’s some crazy shit: a few weeks ago, I spent $800+ on supplements. DID YOU ALMOST PASS OUT AT THAT NUMBER BECAUSE I DEFINITELY DID. But there was good reason, however, and that good reason includes the words “hypothyroid” and “dangerously deficient” and “body full of inflammation”—which explains SO MANY THINGS, including why dropping […]
It all started over a couple of nuts. (As do all good stories.) Picture it: The Ivy Chelsea, circa two days ago. Heidi and I roll up to the bar with our blow outs (BECAUSE HOW ELSE ARE WE GOING TO PRETEND TO BE FANCY?), sat next to a man who actually looked like Javier […]
She looked at me with worried eyes. “Do you really think my business is going to be great?” she asked, clenching her hands together. That’s when I knew what she needed. Not more advice. Not more brand strategy. Not more discussion on what she’s selling, and how she should position it. “J,” I said, turning […]
So, listen, I’m not gonna lie—we got to our new London flat this morning, and the second I walked in, I FINALLY UNDERSTOOD THE MEANING OF LIFE. (P.S. You’re following these shenanigans via my Insta-stories right?) Which is entirely materialistic of me, of course, but I’m of the age these days where I don’t really care because […]
Straight up: every single asshole fear you’ve got going on in your head comes from not knowing. It stands to reason, then, that the best way to get over the fear? Is to study. Study email marketing, if you’re overwhelmed by it. Study writing, if you’re intimidated. Study sales, if you don’t know how to […]
(Hopefully they didn’t drink TOO many mimosas.) Let’s move the conversation over there!
Look for “Yo, It’s Ash” – and check your promotions and spam folder. Once you find the email, drag it into your primary inbox, if you have one, so that way you won’t miss the one idea that could change everything. Together, we’ve got this!
