#AwkTalk Interview With Ash Ambirge on The Middle Finger Project

What do you do when you get everything you wanted and then you feel…disappointed?

Is something wrong with you?

What if you dreamed of the marriage and the house with the carpet on the stairs and the two car garage and the safe job and you got it! And now you’re like UMMMMM. Yeah, can I order seconds of something else???!

Do you journal on gratitude? Or do you revolt?

I sat down with Ash Ambirge of The Middle Finger Project (the wildly successful blog and now the book) to talk about how the book lifts a megaphone to that little voice in the back of your head whispering, “There must be more than this.”

I’m going to start calling this the Ash Ambirge “Tell All” (until she asks me to stop) because I’ve always wanted to write “explosive interview” in an SEO description and because Ash and I go deep about:

  • Who is the handsome man with a drawer full of dirty secrets who would seal her fate (and set her up for one of the hardest decisions of her life)?
  • How did she make $2000 overnight while sleeping in the K-Mart parking lot with only $26 in her pocket?
  • What was her competitive advantage that helped her make six figures her first year out the gate? (Spoiler: it wasn’t bullet journaling.)
  • What throwback game from 90s childhood will she annihilate you in?

And most importantly, what do you do when you’re living your dreams and you’re rating those dreams a two out of five on Yelp?

Do you suck it up because, as your sister Sara and your Aunt Jerri love to remind you, “This is the real world!” Or…do you give that advice the middle finger?
