If You’re Making Less Than $300,000, WE NEED TO TALK

In: Money Talk

$300,000 sounds like a big fucking number, doesn't it?

But I have to tell you, that with the tools we have nowadays with the Internet, there's almost no reason why you shouldn't / can't be making this in your business—WHICH SOUNDS LIKE A POMPOUS THING TO SAY, I REALIZE, BUT AT THE SAME TIME, #TOUGHLOVE + #TOUGHSHIT + #ENCOURAGEMENTFORTHEWIN.

(If you are making more than $300,000, fuck you on behalf of everyone who hates you. Not me, though. I would never hate you. #MONEYFORTHEWIN.)

Anyway, if you're not doing that kind of money, or you want to make more but can't seem to get there, there's a reason why, and it probably means that you need to pivot.

Pivot your message.
Pivot your angle.
Pivot your pricing.
Pivot your entire business.

Because it's really easy to sit there and be like WHYYYYYY???? Why isn't it WORKKKINGGGG? Why is no one BUYYYINNGGGG? I hate ALL THE THINGGGGSSS!

Oh my God it's so easy to fall into a pit of despair and convince yourself that you are actual shit and this is just proof and the rest of the world thinks you're dumb and that's clearly why you're not having as much success as the rest of all the other big fancy fucking bloggers, etc. (Listen, I don't mean to call myself a “fancy fucking blogger” like a real pompous asshat, but I'm going to anyway because I hit $300,000 eleventy bajillion years ago before Netflix was even a thing and that's not because I'm smart it's because I learned how to use the Internet like a wise little grasshopper, and if I can do it, YOU CAN, TOO.)

Instead of chanting along the lyrics to “You Must Whip It,” we need to sing, “You Must Pivot,” and I really wish this song existed because I would absolutely link up to it here.

Do you know how many times I've tested, experimented, tweaked, changed, re-aligned? It's an ongoing part of the process.

And it must be done when you're getting less than optimal results.

SO ANYWAY, there's an entire (free!) online panel I'm on that's happening right now, on this very topic called (ready?) THE PIVOT ASSEMBLY. It's a collection of online video-streamed advice given from some of the top career and business experts who have created their own paths using the Internet, and I HAPPEN TO BE ONE OF THOSE PEOPLE, YO.

I'm not on until Friday, but you should go register yourself for free right now and just tune in for free when you can today. This is a meccaaaaa for business owners who want to ante up, level up, and change it the fuck UP. (There's a track specifically for entrepreneurship.)

By the way, there's also a special deal, for the next three days only, while the live panel is taking place, to get $2,698 of online business how-to for just $97. You don't have to buy it, but you probably should, because one of my products is included which costs $97 in and of itself, and life is too short to leave literal and actual hundreds of thousands of dollars on the table. Because, gross.

Go creep around inside the Pivot Assembly today, for free—because, dude, making big money is magical and I will never, ever apologize for saying that.

LOVE YO' FACE!

XO,

Ash

Are You Making Money or Losing It? Also: Porridge

May 7, 2013

It’s never just about the money coming in; you have to consider the money going out.  When you take on a job, sure, you might earn $5,000. But what’s the cost of earning it?  If you have to forfeit 3 other projects (and your favorite Wednesday night TV show) for a combined total revenue of […]

$199 vs $200: The Difference of a Dollar is Never Just a Dollar

Aug 30, 2016

I was recently told a story about a man named Uncle Bill who went to Colombia, stayed in a hostel, and climbed the ladder into his bunk—even after the four bottles of wine. Uncle Bill wasn’t your average uncle, though. Uncle Bill was eighty-nine years old. Which sounds like a lot, when you say it out loud, […]

The Case For Charging Good Money (Featuring an $800 Example)

Jul 14, 2017

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 […]

Ladies: DO NOT LET THEM MONEY-SHAME YOU

Apr 11, 2019

You know what’s been blowing RIGHT up my skirt lately? That women are shamed for wanting money—as if this is a bad thing. We’re shamed for charging it, for thinking about it, and for daring to create something that we—brace yourselves, folks—want money for, in exchange. There’s this unspoken code of conduct that comes with […]

I hate rules. No swimming after eating. Let him call you. Sorry, our video library can only be watched from within The United States. (Stab. Stab. Stab.) No white after Labor Day. And other silly rules like stay on your side of the road. …I kid, I kid. That last one can slide–as long as […]

Spending Money is Not a Sacrifice, But a Strategy

Jun 14, 2017

Spending money is not a sacrifice, but a strategy. Most people don’t look at it like that, though, and so they spend less—and end up making less, too. But money is like a lever—which, not so coincidentally, comes from the French word, “to raise.” If you think of a seesaw, on one side you have […]

29 Creative Ways You Can Find Some Extra Money on the Fly, In a Pinch, When You’re Strapped and When You’re All: SOS, Cash Flow Where’d You Go?!

Apr 16, 2019

The other day I urged women: do not let them money shame you. Do not! Even though they’ll try to. Even though, because you’re a woman, you’ll be deemed “delusional” and “scammy” and “self-serving,” the more money you charge—even if it’s the going rate. And yet, when a man charges the same thing, they are […]

How to Save Money For People Who Are Notoriously Bad At Saving Money

Sep 26, 2013

You haven’t started saving for retirement yet. You don’t know how you’re going to pay your taxes (because you haven’t been keeping up with—what are those silly things called?—quarterly payments.) You certainly don’t have a rainy day fund. <—Said while laughing hysterically into your beer. And college? Well, the kids will just have to open […]
