Descrizione

Fresh, funny, and fearless, The Middle Finger Project is a point-by-point primer on how to get unstuck, slay imposter syndrome, trust in your own worth and ability, and become a strong, capable, wonderful, weird, brilliant, ballsy, unfuckwithable YOU.
"Don't worry, this isn't a book about God, nor is it a book about Ryan Gosling (second in command). But it is a book about authority and becoming your own." --Ash Ambirge
After a string of dead-end jobs and a death in the family, Ash Ambirge was down to her last $26 and sleeping in a Kmart parking lot when she faced the truth: No one was coming to her rescue. It was up to her to appoint herself. That night led to what eventually became a six-figure freelance career as a sought-after marketing and copywriting consultant, all while sipping coffee from her front porch in Costa Rica.
She then launched The Middle Finger Project, a blog and online course hub, which has provided tens of thousands of young "women who disobey" with the tools and mindset to give everyone else's expectations the finger and get on your own path to happiness, wealth, independence, and adventure.
In her first book, 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. Employing the signature wit and wordsmithing she's used to build an avid following, she offers paradigm-shifting advice along the lines of:
• The best feeling in the world is knowing who you are and what you're capable of doing.
• Life circumstances are not life sentences. If a Scranton girl who grew up in a trailer park can make it, so can you.
• What you believe about yourself will either murder your chances or save your life. So why not believe something good?
• You don't need a high-ranking job title to be authorized to contribute. You just need to contribute.
• Be your own authority. Authority only works as long as you trust that someone smarter than you is making the rules.
• The way you become a force is by being the most radically real version of yourself that you can be.
• You only have 12 fucks a day to give, so use them wisely.

"Internet entrepreneur Ambirge lays out a manifesto for unapologetic, no-holds-barred living in this entertaining debut memoir-cum-guide aimed at young women. Growing up in a trailer park in rural Pennsylvania, Ambirge dreamed of a stable, middle-class lifestyle. But after a series of misfortunes, including an abusive relationship and a death in the family, Ambirge found herself in a K-Mart parking lot, alone, homeless, and wondering what all her aspirations amounted to. The low moment forced Ambirge to find an inner strength that catapulted her over the year that follows, from sleeping in her car to getting a job in advertising to running her own successful online media company. Ambirge writes about her struggles and mistakes with candor and sharp humor, heightening the appeal of her call for radical self-reliance, which amounts to confidence in pursuing one s passions for a living. And along with all the snarky irreverence, Ambirge gives a wealth of advice on entrepreneurship, including tips on battling perfectionism, negotiating, and selling ideas. Ambirge s blunt tone and helpful advice will appeal to any woman looking to shrug off a dreary, conventional career for a life of adventure, passion, and happiness."

Chapter 1
The Rules Were Made Up by Some Guy Named Ted Who Ate a Quarter Pounder for Lunch and Has a Dog Named Wedgie
Or: Surprise! Nobody Actually Knows What They re Doing
GOD.
*puffs on cigar*
Now there s a fun-­filled topic. If we were really ambitious, we d just dive right into the most controversial subject imaginable, given that this book contains all sorts of controversial ideas and it doesn t get any more polite from here. (Now might be a good time to fetch the vodka . . . and maybe a defibrillator.)
Don t worry, this isn t a book about God, nor is it a book about Ryan Reynolds ­second in command. But it is a book about authority and becoming your own. It s not always easy to follow your dreams ­and ride off on a magical flying carpet made of SweetTarts and sugarplum fairies. It s not easy to trust yourself radically, or make bold choices that other people will not agree with, or live life on your own terms. It s not easy to roll up and be all, Yayyyyyyy, I m going to quit my job and be an artist! or Yayyyyyy, I m going to open my own bookshop! or Yayyyyyy, I m going to skip around the Swiss Alps and make cheese in a loincloth and yodel in the afternoons and tell my overbearing sister to shove it! Even in an age when all of these options are more available to us than ever, most of us are basically just drifting along, trying not to get cancer. But even when we do dare break the mold and try something new, the world throws some serious side-­eye.
Who does she think she is?
It won t last.
This is just another one of her big ideas.
In response to the world s censure, we shrink. We second-­guess ourselves. And we secretly wonder if maybe they are right. Maybe we should play it safe and bide our time and be grateful for what we ve got ­which, by the way, happens to be some of the world s worst advice. Being grateful for what we ve got is why so many of us end up staying in dead-­end jobs that have us licking envelopes inside a dimly lit, six-­person of­fice in suburban Philadelphia (been there); why so many women end up staying in relationships they don t want to be in (ugh); why so many of us end up living lives that feel stale and dull and dreary and uninspiring (mmm-­hmmm); and why so many people end up resenting their every minute from the hours of nine to five, being mean to call center agents and rolling their eyes at babies and fantasizing about being hit by a tractor trailer and rushed to the hospital so they don t have to keep doing this crap. (That was me, once upon a time.)
We re all trying SO HARD to be these levelheaded, responsible, card-­carrying grown-­ups that we trade in our sense of adventure and curiosity and wonder and creativity in exchange for what we think is a secure and reliable future, assuming that the more constipated your face looks, the more seriously you ll be taken. Now that I m wearing this sensible pair of pantyhose, everything is going to be JUST FINE.
Back in the day when I was still a Very Good Girl , I wore those same pantyhose and drank milk and never talked back to authority. In fact, I loved authority. What took me a lifetime to discover, though, is that authority only works as long as you trust that someone smarter than you is making the rules.
Take my first boss, for example. I worshipped the guy. I was young and hungry and he was supportive and encouraging and kind. When he spoke, it felt like I was receiving advice from the Dalai Lama. When he handed me my paycheck, he made me feel as if I d just earned a gold m
