I'm the kind of guy to aim for the top; even if I don't ever reach the top, I want to have that lofty goal and to shoot for it. I owe myself that much. And if you're sitting there thinking "What an arrogant son of a b***h!" then something happened in your life to get you where you are now; why did you stop aiming for the top?
Why did you stop shooting for the moon?
Listen, we all know BEING the best is far different from being renowned as the best; Nikola Telsa is a prime example of this. Thomas Edison is the name we all attribute to electricity and the AC current. It's only recently a lot of publicity has shed light on Telsa being the genius. Edison was simply the master salesman and marketer.
I want to know how to be the Telsa and the Edison. Now, I know how to become the Telsa; hard work, practice and a lot of patience. But what about the Edison? There's some incredible copywriters on here; tell me...how do I become as reputable and renowned as you?
How do I put a shadow over the competition, over you? I'm certain there's many great copywriters on this forum, and off it. But how many famous names do we hear? Only a handful, because even though many copywriters can sell, they can't market themselves.
So, my question: How did you make your way to the top? And can you give me some advice on how to follow you up? Of course, I want to carve my own path, but sometimes following the footsteps of greats helps on the climb.
I'm not trying to boast or brag; I know the writers on here who are 10x better than me, and I'm humble enough to know when to shutup and ask for advice.
So, looking to hear from the greats (you know who you are - newbies looking to position themselves, please either sit with me and lap up the great advice that is bound to follow, or keep quiet!)
