Sometimes, when you need it the most, you get the support and encouragement that you need.
I want to thank the women in the Titanides for giving me a scholarship to attend the Titanides Live 2017 event.
Let me fill you in about this secret female society…
The world of direct response copywriting is without question, very male dominated. And yet, the women in the industry are the most brilliant, supportive and inspiring people I know.
Marcella Allison, an amazing copywriter who I have looked up to since the days when I was just getting started, formed this group of women several years ago when they were attending another event, The Titans of Direct Response.
Looking around, it was clear that only a small percentage of the attendees were women. So Marcella invited them all to a dinner where they all got to know each other and have since formed this circle of support.
I couldn’t be more excited to go to Titanides Live. The speakers will include Marcella, Abbey Woodcock, Annie Hyman Pratt, Ilise Benum, Monica Day, Mary Kincaid, Lorrie Morgan-Ferrero, Pauline Longdon, and Carline and Tiara Cole.
While I am extremely grateful for the financial support they have offered me, I am even more appreciative of the culture of paying it forward and giving back embodied by the Titanides.
It motivates me to give back… even seconds after I am on the receiving end.
When I was filling out the scholarship application, I was struck by one of the questions. “How will you pay it forward?”
Even though I was asking for help (because I didn’t have the money to get a ticket) I should be starting to think about helping others.
And I am. I may have had a slump of a summer, but I just need a couple of assignments to get things on track again. I am full of hope for the future, and ready for the business breakthroughs that are just around the corner.
That is why, from now until the event on October 17th, I will set aside 10% of all of my project fees and use that money to help another woman in my industry by contributing it to the scholarship fund.
If you have a project, call me at 505-515-7001 to set things up. I will thank you twice because you be helping me get a head start paying it forward.
Thanks in advance!
P.S. Thanks again, Titanides, for the much needed support. I’m excited to go and I hope to take someone else with me.
