[NOW OPEN!] Register Now for B-School and Get a Private, 60-Minute Call With Me

In: Hate Your Job?

…I realllllly want to make a joke about B-School opening its legs, but I will refrain from being ever-so-classy.

Instead, I will tell you, in equally classy big, caps letters, THAT AS OF 10AM EST THIS MORNING, B-SCHOOL IS NOW OPEN FOR REGISTRATION! Which either means you’re rushing to register, or you’re about to kill yourself. It’s one or the other. (B-School season has that effect on people.)

I do hope, however, that you ARE rushing to register, because guess what?! (Surprise, #3!)

  1. This is THE gold-standard if you are a Regular Person who wants to become an Internet Person and start a real, profitable business online.
  2. B-School is the difference between someone who makes a full-time living online and someone who means well but…doesn’t. (Like I said yesterday, if you want to become a sommelier, you need training. And the same goes for understanding how to run, organize and profit from an online business the right way.)
  3. And here’s the really important news! ***If you get your sassy self over there to register by clicking this link before 10am on Thursday, February 21st, and then forward me your receipt to ash@themiddlefingerproject.org with the subject line “B-SCHOOL RECEIPT”? I’m going to send you a very special, top secret calendar link for you to lock in a time for you and I to get on the phone together during the month of MAY, as soon as you’ve finished B-School, and spend 60 glorious minutes together jamming on whatever you want my advice on. Online business. Copywriting. Email marketing. Selling. Clients. Cash. Love. Hustle. It’s all fair game. You get priority scheduling, and a full sixty minutes of Ambirge tough love. [As a partner of B-School, I’ll get a commission, at no extra cost to you, if you buy through The Middle Finger Project, which is why it makes sense to do this for both you and me. Hooray!)
  4. Can’t register today or tomorrow but still want in? Don’t worry, I've got your back! All B-School students who register as gangster / die-hard members of The Middle Finger Project pack after Thursday at 10am, but before registration closes (by clicking here and signing up – that part's important so it's credited to you) will receive an equally special link to book 30 minutes of glorious jam time together, during the month of JUNE. So, you’ll have to wait a little longer, and time is shorter, but we will still have the BEST time chatting all things business, life and hustle.
  5. P.S. I do not offer consulting anymore, so this truly is a fun-loving, private offer you can only get through B-School. The last time I did offer consulting, however, my rate was $500 for the hour. I am so excited to talk to you! (I’m an excitable person. Let’s just get that out of the way right now.)
  6. Questions? Read the giant FAQ here, see about a trillion B-School reviews from past students here, and if you still have a Q, shoot that bad boy over tobschool@marieforleo.com and the team will get you an answer right away!

I love you and I adore you and I really hope this helps you.

Love, Vodka & The Good Hustle,

Ash

Good Things Come to Those Who Wait for No One

Jun 1, 2017

Here’s a principle I vehemently disagree with: Good things come to those who wait. You know who probably came up with that stylish piece of wisdom? Someone in a position of power, tasked with managing the masses and getting them to obey orders. You can hear a teacher saying that, can’t you? Now, there, little […]

Here’s an Opportunity – TAKE IT

May 1, 2013

I’ve got a theory. Don’t tell anyone, because if they take it to heart, they might get even better at this business thing, and then what’s going to happen is that one year from now, you’ll somehow find yourself eating red velvet cupcakes at their book signing instead of your own, except you won’t just be […]

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

Feb 18, 2019

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 […]

Make Something That Matters

Apr 28, 2017

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?

Starting a Business Isn’t for Weak People, Shitty People, Irresponsible People, Undisciplined People, Stupid People, Forgetful People, Lazy People, Irrational People, Impatient People, or People Who Blame Everything on Obama.

Feb 17, 2015

Nearly ten years ago when I started my first copywriting business, I struggled with the things most new business owners struggle with: Telling a client your fees while silently thinking shitshitshitshitshitshitshit! Having no idea if your fees are too high or too low or WHAT THE HELL AM I SUPPOSE TO BE CHARGING?! Constantly worried […]

WITTY BANTER. Biggest turn-on ever. (Because we’re just opening with that, okay?) Like, I don’t even care if you’re wearing coveralls and haven’t shaved in forty-nine years: if you’re witty, I’m going to want to jump your bones. Which I won’t do, ahem, given that I’m in a relationship and all, but this is a hypothetical […]

I hear people talk about job security all the time, as if this were a real thing. But people really seem to like the concept, you know? I mean, I can’t think of anything more comforting than 40 years of standing in an elevator every day with Lou from HR. <Wide, delirious eyes.> I’m not […]

If You Ain’t Feelin’ Your Work Anymore: HONEY, BURN THAT ISH DOWN.

Jun 14, 2019

So, here’s an idea: making money is not courageous. Anybody can ring a bell for twenty years. “Look, ma—I’ve been standing over here ringing this bell for two entire decades—durh, durh, durh—and I finally got a sticker!” Making money is a relatively straightforward consequence of showing up to breathe in the right place. Cause and […]

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.
