What to expect

Brought to you by Penguin.

Do you have an existential crisis every time your alarm goes off?
Did you used to be fun/effervescent/happy/less of a bitter old b*tch – and now, let’s just say, YOU ARE NOT?
Do you want to feel creative, inspired and, well, just ALIVE again?

Let Ash Ambirge – one of Huffington Post‘s 50 Must-Follow Women, and founder of the multi-million-dollar, multi-award-winning website and blog The Middle Finger Project – offer you a spunky new alternative to traditional concepts of ‘work’.

Growing up in a trailer park, by her twenty-first birthday Ash was a jobless, homeless orphan with only $26 to her name. But even with the odds stacked against her, she changed her fortune forever by starting her million-dollar business from the backseat of her car. Ash gave the finger to convention, blazed her own path, and finally found work she loved. And she wants to show you how she did it.

Whether you’re an individual freelancer, self-made entrepreneur, or part of a larger corporation but not realising your dreams, Ash draws on her unconventional personal story to offer a fun, bracing, and occasionally potty-mouthed manifesto for the transformative power of radical self-reliance. Her paradigm-shifting advice will teach you how to hack your own success, create your own career options, rid yourself of imposter syndrome, and leverage your creativity to make it to the top. Told with her characteristic wit and no-bullshit attitude, this book is a must-read for anyone feeling stuck, restless, and doubtful of everything, especially themselves.

Critics Review

  • I f*cking love a woman who knows what she wants and how to get it – and even better, is willing to share her secrets so we can all get ours too. Ash Ambirge is a whole mood, and trust me: you want to be in it.

    Sarah Knight, New York Times bestselling author of The Life-Changing Magic of Not Giving a F*ck
  • If you don’t believe in yourself, who will? Ash is here to help you see that you have more chances to make a ruckus than you ever thought possible.

    Seth Godin, author of This is Marketing
  • I wouldn’t have had the career I have without having followed Ash’s work. Every woman who has felt even an iota of dissatisfaction in her life needs to read this book. My business book of the year, hands-down.

    Laura Jane Williams, author of Our Stop
  • This funny and fabulously insightful book is f*cking gold – a must-read for any woman who is ready to stop playing small in life.

    Noor Hibbert, Life and Business Coach, author of Just F*cking Do It
  • Ashley Ambirge is Ryan Gosling-sent proof that you can live life on your own terms, burn up the rule book and do what lights you up. The Middle Finger Project is the instruction manual for people who don’t read the manual.
