How Not to Feel Like an Asshole (Two Loud-Mouthed Audio Interviews)

In: Online Marketing

Holy smokes!

It's Friday.

I'm drinking (a big, giant vat of) coffee.

And I'm wearing Adidas yoga pants that are (really) not so flattering. (But since I bought them for 59 times the price when I was living in Chile, I AM GOING TO WEAR THEM COME HELL OR HIGH WATER.) (Good thing they are capris.)

All of those important detail aside, I figured:

What better day to share a couple of loud-mouthed interviews I've given over the past month?

Two of my favorites:

This one with Molly Mahar from Stratejoy (one of my favorite people on the planet who inspires me to actually be nice to people, ahem) on my planning + goal setting process (sort of a joke – ha), doing other things besides business 24/7, why I could never recommend a restaurant in Barcelona after being there for two months (clearly the important part of the interview), why nothing you've ever done in the past matters, what (really exciting things) I'm planning on doing with the hundreds of thousands of dollars earned through TMFproject, why it's easier to make a shit ton of money than it is to learn Italian, and how not to feel like an asshole in 2013.

This one with Natalie Sisson from The Suitcase Entrepreneur, on being controversial, being human in your writing, why I want to slap anyone who uses the word “empower,” and my favorite test on how to figure out if your words are going to connect with your audience–or not. –

Enjoy.

Don't blow your ear drums out.

Don't drink and drive.

Love,

Ash

How to Fuck Up a Sale in 27 Minutes Flat (But Still Score a Date)

Jan 16, 2012

The Scene: The United States of America. 9:57 am: Walk into L.A. Fitness. 9:58: Meet stunningly fit individual named Alberto. 10:00: Decide there is some fucked up pheromones wandering around body that insist on me + Latino men. 10:01: Wonder if Alberto’s name really is Alberto. Consider how unsexy it would be to call him […]

Why You SHOULD Sweat the Small Stuff. (Free Puma Included.)

Dec 11, 2011

Yesterday, I was certain I was going to die.  Not just on one occasion, but two. The first instance was when I agreed to ride an ancient, rusty, rickety, RIDICULOUS ski lift up the side of a volcano. Vollll. Caaaaa. Noooo. Obviously that’s what you do when you’re in Patagonia with a group of friends–ride […]

Butt Paste–And How It’ll Help You Market Yourself Better.

Jan 18, 2013

Last night, I bought three tubes of something called Butt Paste.  You’re probably thinking the same thing that the 19 year old male cashier was. Try making that transaction with a straight face. But a girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do, after all. And this girl is headed to The Bahamas tomorrow with […]

Know Who Your Haters Are

Sep 10, 2018

Tiffany’s doesn’t try to sell diamonds to a sixteen-year-old girl. Nor are they offended, nor worried, when teens aren’t flocking to their stores. Tiffany’s knows that sixteen-year-old girls most definitely aren’t their market. And I also imagine that, were a sixteen-year-old girl to proclaim that Tiffany’s sucks absolute DONKEY BALLS, they wouldn’t take it to […]

Are You Peeing In The Sea of Sameness?

Feb 19, 2014

I was disgusted. She was the 11th person to pass by trying to peddle the same exact selection of sunglasses that ten other people had peddled just seconds before. “Senorita?” she said, tapping me on the shoulder from behind my table once more. I ignored her once more. She circled around me in case I […]

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.

Enter your email address and I’ll send you my advice column every week sharing everything I’ve learned—and so much more.

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