Ashley Ambirge grew up in a trailer park and lost her family at a young age. After a career in advertising, and a relationship breakdown Ash found herself sleeping in her car. That was the moment she decided to pursue her dreams as a creative writer. She built a business doing what she loved, using nothing more than the internet and her voice. Today, Ash has a global fanbase who follow her "The Middle Finger Project," an irreverent movement that helps us find our voice and teaches us how to use it to build whatever we want. When people ask Ash what she does, how does she like to reply? Does Ash ever think back to her childhood in the trailer park as a reminder of where she came? The moment Ash decided to work for herself. We resign ourselves to "sticking it out," "making the best of it," and "focusing on the good." Why do we get stuck? Sleeping in her car in a Kmart parking lot How Ash is more herself when she writes than when she meets people in person Does Ash have a certain lack of confidence meeting with people face to face? The impact on our development - not having a father figure to turn as a kid Can Ash trace the identity changes she made through her journey? Ash could have held onto the identity of the trailer park kid. Why did she believe in herself? How Ash built her writing rituals by getting up early? Finding a partner aligned to your drive and approach to life Is that voice of justification getting in the way of our great work? Radical self-trust - how do we know what voice to trust? Importance of being a thought leader How does Ash navigate being shy and quiet, yet her persona is very gregarious, outgoing and confident? LINKS Ashley Ambirge https://www.themiddlefingerproject.org
