The love couch

I don’t want to brag, but the minute I got home from Bootcamp everyone wanted to cuddle with me. My dog was first in line, because he was the first to come thundering down the stairs at three in the morning ready to greet me with licks and affectionate doggy lean-ins. Then came Quinn, ready to […]

It was such a pleasure to meet Cheryl!

Last week I got an unexpected voicemail from one of my subscribers, Cheryl Riveness.  Cheryl is a copywriter and a fellow member of the Circle of Success. This was her first time coming out to Bootcamp and she wanted to get together for coffee and say hi. What she said in her voicemail just blew […]

I’m really really excited about this!

I’ve already told you about five hundred times that I’m going to AWAI’s 2017 FastTrack to Copywriting Success Bootcamp and Job Fair.   My plane takes off tomorrow. 🙂     But there is something else that will take off tomorrow. My newest clients, Chris and John Yax (owners of Hot House Yoga) will be sending their first daily […]

My husband is going to hate this (and love it)

I know it’s wrong, but I can’t help it. I have a rivalry with my husband over money. Even though he has always made more moolah than me, I still dream of raking in more than he does. When I told him today that I was offering a package where my clients get daily emails […]

Eek! It’s a black widow. Kill it!!!!

I saw a black widow on the way to my car at the airport on Saturday night. She walked across a parking space, under a black corvette, across the street to a messy web where she snacked on yesterday’s butterfly. Ever since I moved to New Mexico I have been terrified of black widows. One of […]

I’m squishy and I know it

I have to admit, I’ve been feeling pretty neurotic about my clothes in the weeks leading up to the Titanides Live event and Bootcamp. I mean, it’s a professional event where you want to stand out and get clients. And so… I should buy new clothes, right? And that was what I planned to do. […]

Have you seen my keys?

Have you seen my keys? (Just kidding… but not really). One of my special quirks is that whenever life gets stressful I lock my keys in my car. The sad truth is that it even happens when that stress is positive. Like last week when I had an interview at a big, well funded and […]

Here’s how my new client is making his decision

Last week I was negotiating a contract with a new client. My client shared his decision-making thought process with me. He knows what he wants to accomplish, how much work he thinks he needs, and I’m sure he has a good idea of how much money he can make from his marketing efforts. He knows what […]

Stuffed mushrooms over the campfire

Over the weekend my husband and son went camping with the Boy Scouts. The scouts were eating gourmet campfire food! While the boys were out doing god-knows-what in the woods, the parents were pitted against each other in a cooking contest. The leaders bought an assortment of ingredients. The parents were split into two groups, each […]

Let me take your sales letter with me to Bootcamp

If you need a sales letter, now is the best time to have me write it. Next week I’m going to AWAI’s Fast Track to Copywriting Success Bootcamp. I have been going almost every year since 2010 when I joined the Circle of Success. I’ll also be going to the Titanides Live event. And that […]
