For the Love of Everything Vodka: Do You Even *Like* the Work That You’re Doing???

In: Hate Your Job?

I want you to really think about that for a second. Because the thing is, the Internet’s given us a fucking BUFFET of opportunity—you can start any business you want with $20, these days–but like a kid in a candy store who walks in and just starts gobbling up whatever worms are in front of his face, we, too, walked into the Internet and we were all like GIMMIE, GIMMIE, GIMMIE, GIMMIE.

And that means that there are a lot of folks out there doing things that they don’t even want to be doing, “because the timing was right” or “because they just sort of fell into it” or “because it just made sense at the time.”

Do yourself a favor: honor your curiosities.

Don’t be a slave to a business or a job that you don’t even like anymore. Don’t let the responsibilities of the past become your ankle weights of the future. Don’t assume that it’ll work itself out, or you haven’t given it enough time yet.

You have.
You’re done.
Be done.
Let it go.

And move on to something that makes you a more passionate person tomorrow—not a shell of a person who once was.

Make Something That Matters

Things aren’t always what they seem. An email list full of 100,000 people is meaningless if only 100 of those people open the emails. Similarly, an email list of 100 people, with 100 of those people opening them, does mean something. Who is more successful? And who is doing something that actually matters?

I Became an Entrepreneur Because My Life Stopped Being Fun

I’m in the airport, on my way to London. London is officially my favorite city in the world because it’s the one place where I don’t feel like an overdressed moron. (Try going anywhere in Costa Rica with even so much as kitten heels and YOU WILL LOOK RIDICULOUS.) I’ll be there all summer, excited […]

How to Start an Online Business When You Are Not an “Internet Person”—And Are Seriously Doubting That You Can Do This

So, the other day one of my best college girlfriends reached out and was all, “Ashhhhhhhhhh! I need your helpppppp! I’m trying to start an online business but I have no idea what I’m doing and you’re obviously the first person that I thought of, muahahaha.” (She. Is. Adorable. She’s been hand-painting wooden signs and […]

Dream Zappers, Thought Terrorists, and Why You Should Be Weary of Anyone Who Tells You “I’m Just Looking Out for You”

OKAY. I just have to say this before I freaking hurl a tray of freshly-baked carrot fries across the room. (What? They’re good. SPRINKLE THEM WITH SOME CUMIN.) So today at 8:32am I got a text from a friend—like, an actual, IRL friend—who is thinking about registering for B-School tomorrow (since she, like so many […]

You Find Peace With Your Work Through Tension

It’s never as scary as it seems. Everything you’re worried about happening? Won’t. It might seem intimidating, the world—putting yourself out there, taking the chance, trying something new, going all in, showing up, asking for help, connecting with strangers, and, ultimately, gambling your ego and everything you know to be true. There will be a […]

We Need You to Give Yourself the Job

Today I will drive twenty six miles on backroads, through crisp autumn air, past dairy farms and old Citgo stations, and up a giant hill to my alma mater, Blue Ridge High School, here in rural Pennsylvania. I’m speaking to a group of seniors. Hijacking their last class of the day as I hoist myself […]
