HOLY BUTTERNUTS I MADE A VIDEO. (P.S. IT’S OUTRAGEOUS. WITH CAPS. ALL OF THEM. )

In: Starting an Online Business

Hold all the pumpkin rolls: I'VE DONE IT, YOU GUYS. I'VE FINALLY DONE VIDEO.

I'm pretty sure that giving me a camera was a very bad idea. Or a very good idea—I can't tell yet. But I can tell you this—I AM HAVING WAY TOO MUCH FUN.

For the love of a laugh, it's called: What Freelancers, Creatives & Business Owners Are Really Thinking. (You didn't think this was going to be a serious lecture did you?) It's two minutes long, has a major attitude problem, and I hope it gives you a chuckle and/or makes you question how reliable your bladder is. 

 

 

And to that I say TGIF! If you aren't mainlining wine already then hopefully this is your next best bet. You know, to get through that one last torturous hour at your desk. 

TO OUT FUNNING EVERYONE IN LIFE AND BUSINESS ALWAYS, 

Ash

What To Do When You Hire Them And…They Suck.

So you started a business and before you knew it you were regularly lip syncing to Gaga while kicking ass, taking orders, AND taking names—which, for the record, I hear is a mafia term. Isn’t that delightful? Suddenly, you found yourself with an extra $5 and immediately shouted to no one in particular, “I’m going to reinvest […]

Is Your Package Big Enough?

Confess. You’re reading this because the title made you think of male genitalia. (…And now you’re thinking about how weird the word “genitalia” sounds.) I know, I know. I tried to avoid it, but really, I can’t. Because today’s tip is about packaging your service or product offerings, so why be modest? I’m not even […]

Screw Being Your Own Boss

  Being your own boss is infinitely harder than having a boss, and by infinitely (which is a pain in the ass to spell), I mean 17,929,531.9045 times harder. Exact math. The next time I hear someone say that they want to be their own boss, I’m going to take the nearest rotten pork chop and slap […]

THE BUSINESS BLACKLIST: If You’re Doing Any of These 6 Things, STOP IMMEDIATELY.

1. The first thing on the No B.S. Business Blacklist? Putting up an auto-responder that tells all of your customers that “in the name of productivity” you’re only checking your email at 7am, 12pm and 4pm.  Can everybody that’s doing this go fuck themselves, please? I don’t care about your personal time tables, and you’re wasting […]

Tweet When You’re Dead

Death is weird. One minute you’re painstakingly slaving over the perfect Facebook status update, worrying about the new wrinkle in your forehead, and crying hysterically over the fact that you spilled a drop of creamer on the counter and WHY! CAN’T! ANYTHING! BE! EASY!, and the next, well, you don’t even have the privilege of […]

DO NOT KILL THE PEOPLE SELLING LULAROE. They’re Actually Ahead of the Curve—And Here’s Why.

LuLaRoe. Rodan + Fields. Younique. AdvoCare. Usana. Beachbody. doTerra. Herbalife. Pampered Chef. If you’re anything like me, your Facebook feed is blowin’ UP with folks who have become representatives for these companies. (Some of them I like and respect, and others make me want to chainsaw their house.) So why is this becoming such a […]

So You’ve Got a Great Idea But Have NO Idea Where to Start. (And It’s Making You Angsty and Farty and Paralyzed With Fear.)

“But we don’t know how.” We were seated at the edge of the bar, nibbling on appetizers and enjoying the sunset. They were two friends, friends with big ideas and big dreams and a bug right up their ass to do something more meaningful and creative with their careers—and their lives. (My favorite kind of […]
