...at the Columbus Airport they have hangers where private jets are stored.
Take a drive on the outskirts of Columbus and you'll see some awesome houses. 5 car garages...swimming pools...
Does any of this sound like you or the way you're living?
I drive the Maserati and yes I have a private jet and a nice house.
But here's what I want to tell you.
You can have all this too if you're a copywriter.
You can start today and make things happen.
Yeah, I have my people that try and discredit me...I assume it's just jealousy. Most of them haven't earned enough to buy a cheap scooter...but it's ok. I'll do a post and they just can't wait to jump in and explain why everything I say is so wrong. They'll post everything they can think of on why I must be talking BS.
They'll still be trying to scrape together enough pennies next week to pay their bills.
I have a plan and I'm gonna share it with you. If you follow this plan you'll make it to the big time.
The only thing in the world that holds you back from achieving your goals is inaction.
You have to take action...and you have to start now.
The biggest reason people never achieve anything is because they NEVER START trying to achieve anything. They put together big plans on paper or in their head, then the plans never go anywhere. They have big dreams of success, but then their dreams end up only being dreams.
I don't care if you're the dumbest, most backward, ugliest, fatest, cross eyed person in the world...you CAN be wealthy.
Here's the plan:
Sit down and put your goals on paper.
1. Be specific: I will make $2500.00 by July 30, etc. Get so specific that you have no wiggle room.
2. Tomorrow morning get up and start going business to business selling yourself and what you can do for them. You're a copywriter...you can do ads, you can write their website copy...you can do newsletters, etc. You may spend the whole day and get nowhere but that's ok...you start all over again Tuesday.
3. Tuesday you may spend all day and get nowhere...but then you have Wednesday.
4. Wednesday you may spend all day going business to business and get nowhere...then you have Thursday.
Here's the thing.
You have no idea the stuff you'll learn by getting out into your community. Doors will start opening up. But here's the biggest thing, and I've discovered this from personal experience, and I'm telling you now you'll discover this too...
...almost always...the plan you started with in the beginning will never be what you end up with once things start clicking.
You may start going business to business offering to write homepages for websites...then bam...you're doing consulting or you're doing their ads, etc. Virtually in every situation when you're starting out...you'll end up where you probably least expected.
But check this out...
You will never ever ever ever understand any of what I'm saying until you start.
There's magic that happens once you just get out there and start doing stuff.
You can spend months putting together a business plan on how you're gonna do this and that and I'm telling you the whole thing gets flushed right down the crapper almost immediately once you finally decide to put it into action...things change...the plan gets redesigned...you discover this or that...a million things go wrong.
Virtually every successful person I've talked to will always tell me one of the biggest mistakes they made in business was just simply over thinking things.
Put together a simple plan...takes a few minutes...get out there tomorrow and put it into action. If your plan never works out I guarantee you...without any doubt in my mind...you'll get the right plan quickly and you'll become successful.
Just a little pep talk for those wanting to make a career by being copywriters.
P.S. If your name isn't Bob or Lisa, you're a very curious person and I'm sure you will get something out of this post.
