If You Had One Shot…Would You Capture It, Or Let It Slip?

In: Starting an Online Business

Hand holding.

It's a beautiful thing. Especially when the hand that you're holding is tall, dark and Mediterranean.

But sometimes, other forms of hand holding is just as…tingly.

Like when you're in the early stages of business brainstorming, or getting your business launched, and you need someone to:

a) Kick your ass

b) Hold you accountable

c) Just tell you what the fuck you need to do

d) So you can do it

e) And everybody goes home happy

Based on the survey you took, this is one of your biggest needs – having someone there to walk you step-by-step through the process, so you can't phone it in, and you can't procrastinate any further, and so you actually start making progress.

Because let's face it – starting your own business can be hard.

No one's saying it isn't.

But…if given the right set of tools, combined with the right set of knowledge, and the willingness to put one foot in front of the other, it becomes a lot easier.

And that's what I'm here working to arm you with, so you can prance along and start doing work that FEELS GOOD.

For your soul and your pocket.

Look. If you had one shot, or one opportunity

To seize everything you ever wanted in one moment

Would you capture it?

…Or let it slip?

So it's time to stop messing around.

It's time to start taking your goals, your dreams + your desires seriously. It's time to break out of your chains, and go forth into the world, ready to TEAR IT UP.

IT'S YOUR TIME TO SHINE.

IT'S YOUR TIME TO BE EVERYTHING YOU EVER WANTED.

IT'S YOUR TIME TO PROVE IT TO YOURSELF THAT YOU CAN.

IT'S YOUR TIME TO STEP UP TO THE PLATE, AND MAKE IT HAPPEN FOR YOU.

Because if you don't…no one else will.

And I refuse to watch you walk off quietly.

THIS IS NOT A GAME.

IT'S YOUR LIFE.

ACT LIKE IT.

BE SOMEBODY.

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

Jul 10, 2014

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 […]

Create & Offer What YOU’D Want to Buy.

Mar 30, 2016

  “THAT’S GENIUS!” said a lot of really sweet people really big brown nosers after the launch of Unf*ckwithable Girlfriends last week. Except they weren’t giving me the compliment because of what it contained, but rather, because of what it didn’t. “You mean you aren’t inundating everyone with another Facebook group? No forums? No Google […]

How to Be Able to Travel Whenever You Want

Mar 30, 2012

Can we please talk about the fact that tonight, I’m getting a ride to the airport from a random, way-skinnier-than-me (and probably you) Vietnamese woman named Kim, who works at the random nail salon where I got a pedicure yesterday? Yeah. That’s fucking weird, and it’s totally happening. And I’m totally excited about it, mostly […]

Please, I Beg You, Get a Niche. (No Matter Which Way You Pronounce That Irritating Word.)

Aug 4, 2015

Most annoying word ever: Niche. Come on, say it with me now. Nicheeeeeeeee. Oh wait, what’s that? You don’t know if it’s pronounced NIT-ch like an angry German or NEE-sh like a snobby Frenchman? That’s okay, neither does anybody else. DON’T LET THEM FOOL YOU. Kind of like how nobody actually knows how to pronounce […]

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

Jan 1, 2014

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 […]

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.
