Personally I have a girl crush on Ashley Ambirge, and I know I’m not alone. This super sassy and amazingly talented digital entrepreneur, has built a multiple six figure business from her laptop.
Clearly marketing yourself as the “go-to copywriter + online marketing sexpot for businesses + brands who want PERSONALITY” has paid off for her, because you can’t help but love Ash.
If you’ve not yet visited The Middle Finger Project then you’re missing out. Ash manages to combine her wit, charm and travel stories (mainly about drinking and hot guys) with rock solid, bang on marketing and business advice for solopreneurs.
And all this since only 2011, which was her first year in business (she started freelancing in 2005), and also when I first came across her.
I was so impressed with her ballsy move to create a product called 97 in 11, in which she actually told you exactly how she was going to make $97,000 in that year - talk about holding yourself accountable.
Naturally I supported her efforts 100%, I mean who doesn’t want to see someone succeeed who has so blatantly put themselves out there in such a big way…oh and she totally surpassed her revenue goal.
Ashley comes from a `similar’ background to me, as in real world corporate experience, predominantly in marketing for both big online companies to tech startups, including being the Director of PR at Aweber, one of the most successful email marketing providers.
We had both discovered each other online through our blogs and so hooked up on a Skype call back in early 2011, which more like a speed-dating style catch up on steroids.
She was living in Santiago, Chile and I was in Buenos Aires, Argentina. She’s currently in Costa Rica and when you read this I’ll be back in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. So yes we `get each other’.
Along with helping her clients to make more cash, she’s an online marketing, sales and copywriting instructor, and she runs the copywriting division of TMF called, appropriately, `No Apology Included’.
Ashley is quite simply on the rise and rise and pours out her insight, wisdom and quirky loveable style in our podcast interview, so listen up!
