a guy that lives here in Ohio...
can't write a lick of good copy, but he's busy all the time with clients.
Actually...I think he probably swipes most of the stuff he writes from on-line stuff...he makes about $3000.00 a week.
His clients love him...you'd probably hate him.
Which brings me to the reason for this post...
It's all about determination.
He's a go-getter.
He's out there all the time...lots of "We're not interested", lots of "What's your references", lots of "Who've you worked for"...
lots of just just plain "bug off" in polite words.
He never seems upset or discouraged...
most would give up and quit...not Ronnie.
I would post some of his stuff on here but you seasoned vets of copywriting would rip it apart...it's that bad.
We get together and drink a few on the weekends...I give him some tips...none on copy though...wouldn't work anyways.
He's probably not going to go down in history on any forum as being a "top copywriter"...
he won't care.
Ronald writes some of the worst copy I've ever seen, but he made over $150,000.00 last year writing stuff that wouldn't pass a critique on this forum.
He's got determination.
There's just no way you can stop him. He's out there drumming up business...he doesn't get distracted when someone tells him "no".
There's no reason why "you" as a copywriter can't be wealthy. There's no reason why you can't "have it all".
