THIS VIDEO, THOUGH. Talk About Making Me Hot, Hot, Hot With Desire. (Not That Kind.) (But Maybe?)

In: Online Marketing

One of our subscribers created this video, recently, to promote her business—and HOLY FUCK.

That is all I want to say, over and over and over again. Holy. Fuck. (Which is obviously the best testament there is.)

If you’ve ever doubted the fact that emotion sells, I challenge you to think again.

Because anyone can start a business writing other people’s bios (the way she’s niched this is brilliant, by the way); but not everyone can make you long for one.

That's the difference between someone who’s selling their services, and someone who’s selling a story.

The person selling a service has to do a whole lot of convincing to do to get to yes. The person selling the story, on the other hand, gets the yes first—and then can sell whatever they like.

She Wrote the Book On It

Oct 16, 2017

At my retreat in the Cotswolds, this past summer, I gave everyone salmon-colored Kate Spade notebooks that read on the cover: She wrote the book on it. It’s a theme I teach and live and breathe and bleed. Everyone’s always asking, “How do you market yourself? How do you get people to notice you?” (For […]

Cut The Fat.

Oct 17, 2011

Cut the fat. Give yourself the white space you need in order to grow. And… …pursue what you’re really here to pursue. Hint: It’s probably the one thing on your to-do list that doesn’t have any guidelines, instructions, paths to follow or tried and true ways of doing it. And that’s exactly why you’re procrastinating […]

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 […]

We Don’t Sell Those

Jul 6, 2017

There is a rose company, here in the UK, that doesn’t give a fuck that they don’t sell daisies. It’s delightfully refreshing, in fact. There are no apologies about it; no wishy washiness; no trying to cover all the bases. Just this base is fine, thanks. Notice the quiet confidence it exudes? I’m also betting […]

Get Yourself Some Enemies

Feb 27, 2014

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 […]

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.
