The Dirtiest Piece of Advice I Have For You (On Biz, Copywriting + Living Out LOUD)

In: Online Marketing

Well holy shit. It's Thursday.

An interview I did the other day with Bern from Your Great Life TV went live today, and I wanted to pass it along because I give some fast and dirty straight shooter (pow pow!) advice on running an online biz, copywriting like a motherfucker, and living a life you love, already. (While wearing fake pearls. And after having a dirty martini with pineapple man. Shhhhhhh.)

I'd love it if you'd take a look, because it's a nice change from me ranting with the written word–to ranting in person. You may love it, or you may be inspired to send a hit man after me because you just can't take it anymore. Totally understandable.

The interview in Bern's words:

What happens when you combine the power of the feminine creative force and add honest, extraordinary, and gutsy marketing genius? You get Ashley Ambirge 🙂 I’m not going to attempt to describe what an amazingly creative, marketing savvy, funny, woman she is, but I will say that hosting her on my show has been a true privilege. I especially love that the insights you will gain from listening to this interview can be applied not just to the art of creating a thriving business but to living a life that REALLY matters too. Aside from watching this interview do yourself a favor and get on her email list, if for not other reason, to see the best FREE product I’ve seen for joining a list.

Some key insights from this interview:

  • Understand the power of hitting the “publish” button
  • How to use pain to fuel your mission
  • Why marketing matters as much as passion
  • The secret to avoid struggling (like so many) when creating a meaningful online biz
  • The two instant solutions that create the most impact when sharing your message online
  • Why copy blindness might be hurting your message & how to avoid it
  • What’s her biggest lesson from traveling the world and living in Latin America It’s not what you think
  • What’s Ashley’s boldest & latest initiative

Get Yourself Some Enemies

Elementary school ruined everything. They tattooed horrible cliches onto our 8 year old hearts to “think big!” — “aim high!” — “walk with your head down in single file OR DIE” — — which probably explains New York City. While I know they REALLY wanted you to become an astronaut (or at least make sure you knew how […]

25 Ways the F-word Can Help Your Business THRIVE

I came across this poster over at The Donut Project, and instantly knew this was something I had to share. You loved it, right? That’s what I thought. My personal favorite is, “Make me fucking care,” which is probably the best piece of marketing advice I could ever offer. Think about it. Then do something […]

You are not anyone’s only option. (…So now what?)

We made out for hours that night. College kids stepped clumsily around us, spilling their beer as much as their morals. It was an era of chunky blonde highlights and boot cut jeans, tanning beds and lacy little lingerie tops from Express. My favorite was champagne & cream colored. I had it on that night. […]

Clear vs Clever Copywriting is a Big, Fat, Bloated Myth (And a Scapegoat for Subpar Writers)

I’m a very dirty writer. Not Fifty Shades of Grey dirty, but dirty in the way that I put sentences, thoughts, ideas together. My process is wild. Sexy. Free. Undomesticated. And while I wish the reason were because I’m just such a clay-faced, crochet-bra-top-wearing, sun-worshipping bohemian soul (I am laughably not), rather, it’s because I […]

Looks Aren’t Superficial When It Comes to Making Money

So I buy these B12 supplements the other day—BECAUSE APPARENTLY MY BODY IS ALL, OH, VITAMIN B, HAHA, THAT’S CUTE—and it comes in this sturdy little bottle that feels very important, and I’m all excited because obviously I think that I’m doing a good deed slash being a responsible adult. So I go to open […]

Why “Business As Usual” Is Usually Killing Your Business

Fun is underrated. It’s no longer enough to do a good job, provide good customer service or deliver on time. Those things aren’t competitive advantages; they’re the expectation. And since they’re the expectation, you’re not impressing anyone. What isn’t always the expectation, however, is how fun it’ll be to do business with you. Not just pleasant. […]

How Dating Chilean Men Can Help You Succeed In Business. Kind of. And Why Bloody Noses Are Not Okay, Which Is Not Related to The Story At All, But You Should Read About It, Anyway.

So the other day there was a guy. Isn’t there always a guy? Anyway, the other day there was a guy, and I may or may not have been kissing said guy. Said guy is so attractive, that I’m almost nervous to be kissing him, because, as we all know, when you’re kissing really attractive […]

So, People Suck at Talking to Each Other

People suck at talking to each other. I’ve thought about this post for days now, and turns out? That’s my grand epiphany. My big, profound opening line. As a professional communicator & copywriter, trained linguist, PR expert and author of that filthy blog, “The Middle Finger Project” (my hooligan credentials), I get paid to say […]

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

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 […]

Tired of Being Told To “Differentiate Yourself?”

Everyone tells you to be unique. Find your USP. Differentiate yourself. (Meanwhile, you’re all, “Stab, stab stab, I’m the same, I’m the same, I’m the same – how am I suppose to “differentiate” life coaching?) And so you take a drink, because these are the types of things that drive people to drink, and you […]
