I had a conversation with a young copywriter yesterday.
A dude who decided to leave his corporate job and go fulltime as a freelancer after coaching with me.
He’s done really well for himself in the short time he has been writing copy.
His best year he made about $400,000 in fees and royalties.
But he has been plateaued ever since… no matter what he’s done to try and top it.
So he sought me out again for some advice. (I knew this day would come. I just didn’t expect it to happen so soon.)
You see, I hardly know any freelance copywriters doing much better than that.
The copywriters I know making more than that have some sort of partnership/equity arrangements.
So this young copywriter arrived at the following conclusion after we spoke:
If you want to make a lot of money, YOU have to be in control.
I know copywriters who have done really well in partnership arrangements.
But that always reminds me of what an attorney friend once told me. (Yes, after 12 years in law enforcement and knowing HUNDREDS of attorneys… only one was worthy of my friendship.)
He would take a couple grand in fees from clients consulting with him about partnership arrangements. Then he would give them the following advice:
Think long and hard about going into this partnership.
Take as much time as you need.
Then… DON’T DO IT.
So I advised this young copywriter to do the same.
After exploring all the options he came to the only logical conclusion for him:
(And this is YOUR lesson for the day, too.)
If you want to make a lot of money, you gotta have your own business.
That’s exactly what I teach my knights in the Marketing Camelot.
I get especially excited working with freelancers showing them how to make 10x’s… 100x’s… 1,000x’s more money writing copy for themselves instead of clients.
And also helping “civilians” see that it ain’t all that complicated to get your own online “lifestyle” business started.
And I take it pretty damn seriously.
In MY eyes, I’m not just teaching entrepreneurship.
I’m saving lives.
‘Cuz if your experience is like mine was… before I learned all this stuff…
…a life lived in “quiet desperation” sucks the life force out of you and makes you miserable.
You exist… but you never really live.
So yeah… I’m committed to the knights in my Marketing Camelot.

All the best,
