I started off in a minimum-wage job working in my parents’ restaurant while I tried figuring out what I wanted to do with my life. And I’d tried a lot of things by that point: the military, college, trade school, MLM’s, and even high-ticket sales.
But as I dove deeper into high-ticket sales, I kept hearing about copywriting, so I dove in. And it was a brutal start, with a lot of false starts that never really went anywhere.
My first major gig came in the form of writing for a marketing agency, even though it was a 9-5. At one point, I booked 69 sales calls in a week for their $10,000 offer.
This lasted for a year as I came to realize that I’m not cut out for the 9-5, so I went freelance.
Now, I help mid 6-figure plus entrepreneurs scale their business and get their time back with my copy. Plus, finding out that I’m on the spectrum helped me realize that I’m basically unemployable due to how poorly-fitted I am to the 9-5.
Plus, being a copywriter lets me stay at home and be there for my girlfriend and my cat.
Why did you start your business?
I started my business after realizing that I could not swing a commute to an office. The social dynamics of a workplace didn’t suit me, and just the commute itself was enough for sensory overload. But I’m also very keen on learning how to communicate, and copywriting seemed like the perfect avenue.
I went on this road and I haven’t looked back.
What is something you wish you had known when you first started?
Relationships are everything. No matter how good your systems and offer are, you need to lock in a working relationship with clients before you get them to buy, and the more expensive the offer, the more you need to build the relationship.
