My goats recently reminded me of one of the key ingredients to business success –
Don’t get complacent.
You can read the entire post about my hard won lesson here.
When I think about it – humility and the desire to always be learning certainly is what fueled my copywriting business and allowed me to get to where I am today. I coupled this attitude with some invaluable tools I discovered as I was just starting out . . .
Close to 8 years ago I took a deep gulp and bought my first AWAI copywriting course with a credit card I couldn’t afford to use.
Today, I have a solid copywriting business that keeps money flowing in – even though I work part time. I just finished a job that paid me over $8000 and I’m in the middle of a $7000 job right now.And I’m still able to focus my time on being a mom, being a wife, keeping up a little homestead farm, and take some time to care for my mother who has dementia.
I started off with one course and over the years I’ve purchased close to two dozen. While the prices seemed heady when I bought my first few courses, I quickly learned the cost was nothing compared to what I could earn with the knowledge I gained from them.
Unlike a college education which doesn’t seem to do much for your earning potential – these courses are filled with solid, step-by-step how-to’s for creating an critically-needed business product – hardworking marketing copy. In fact in today’s economy, this skill seems even more in demand!
And one of the best courses for starting out your copywriting career – and referring to on an ongoing basis as you grow – is the AWAI Accelerated Program For Six-Figure Copywriting.
It’s the core curriculum for copywriters. And for a limited time, AWAI’s offering a great deal for people who want to get started with it.
[Please note – when you click on these links, I will get a commission for the sale. However, as I mentioned before, I struggled for several years to make money as a writer. It wasn’t until I started using AWAI’s materials that I put my freelance writing business in high gear. My recommendation here is based on all the good things investing in AWAI’s course have brought to my life.]
Interested? Here is some more detailed information from AWAI about the course and how it’s changed so many people’s lives by helping them turn writing into a viable business:
From “Starving Artist” to Successful Writer
Published author Patricia McCord, learned about the financial possibilities firsthand. She was already an award-winning children’s novelist, but she simply wasn’t making enough money from her books.
She didn’t want to take a full-time job, so she learned how to write copy. And now she makes enough as a freelance copywriter to pay the bills and then some … leaving her plenty of time to work on her fiction. Just last month, her quarterly royalty check for one sales letter she wrote three years ago was $5,941!
Along with her inspiring story, her letter introduces you to the world’s best home-study program for learning the art and science of direct-response copywriting, and is recommended by some of the greatest copywriters around — like Bob Bly, Herschell Gordon Lewis, Don Hauptman, Clayton Makepeace, Dan Kennedy, and Nick Usborne, just to name a few.
A long and growing list of people who have taken the program and applied its principles have left behind routine, often low-paying dead-end jobs and are now making six-figures from their home or anywhere they choose to write.
Is This Program For Real?
Every week, AWAI gets calls and emails from readers, asking if the program is for real …
They’re skeptical at first because they think the claims are “hype.” But it only takes a few minutes to ease their concerns. They simply show them:
- the long list of people who are achieving great success as copywriters,
- the industry experts who recommend the program to their own readers,
- the impeccable status with the Better Business Bureau,
- and the line-up of great resources a budding copywriter needs to succeed.
In fact, if you want to make a real living writing, you should check out this program.
As a freelance copywriter, you set your own hours, live wherever you please, and spend as much time as you like writing … at the beach, in the mountains, in an apartment in Paris, London … wherever you choose to be.
And despite the economy, copywriters are still in very high demand, since they are the engines that drive the $2.7 trillion direct-response industry and the $6.5 trillion Business-to-Business industry. Copywriters I talk to say the demand for well-written copy and online content is higher than ever, as marketers tend to promote more often and more aggressively in down markets.
In other words – unlike writing for magazines and newspapers – it’s virtually a recession-proof writing career!

“AWAI’s Accelerated Program for Six-Figure Copywriting was everything I hoped it would be! It was easy for me to walk away from an 18-year engineering career shortly after I finished the program. I had all the work I could handle. I feel like I’m finally leading the life I was meant to live. I can’t thank you enough!”
— Krista Jones,
“When I got that first letter telling me I could make $100,000 a year as a professional copywriter, I was skeptical. If I hadn’t been so desperate … and so broke … I might have thrown it away. That was three years ago. This year I claimed $134,408 on my income tax return – all from copywriting!”
— Monica Day,
“In 2003, I had advanced to a point in my sales career where weekly travel was inevitable. I was at the top of my field, earning a great living. But as a new dad, I didn’t want to be away from home all the time. Plus, I was getting tired of continually rising quotas – an inevitable reality when you’re in sales. Eleven years of chasing numbers had worn me out. I was ready for a change. Yet I didn’t want to sacrifice my high income and my family’s financial future.
“AWAI’s Accelerated Program for Six-Figure Copywriting allowed me to develop the skills I needed to transition away from a six-figure sales career and into a six-figure copywriting business. In my first full year as a freelance copywriter, I earned $163,481.”

“I sent for the Accelerated Program for Six-Figure Copywriting and inhaled the information. Now, just a few months later … my first spec assignment has been accepted … I’m being paid $5,000 for it … and they want another sales letter for November.”

“Well, I got my first paid assignment — even before I’m done with the program! I’ve been telling various people I’ve networked with over the years what I’m up to … and that (led) to a real paying assignment. $3,000 for about one week’s worth of writing — an email and direct-mail sales campaign. And, there will be more work on the heels of this project.”

“I’m in my sixth month and I’ve already made more than three times the cost of the program [at that time about $1,500]. I landed jobs I learned about in The Golden Thread … and I’m confident both will result in more work from the clients.”

“I first learned of AWAI in 2001. I’ve always wanted to write, but thought you’d starve to death unless you were Stephen King or someone like that. Then I discovered copywriting. It’s challenging, extremely interesting, and allows me to live my life the way I’ve always dreamed of. At the end of this year my husband and I (and our Chihuahua puppy Jack) will move into our 37-foot motorhome and begin living our dream, full-time RVing lifestyle.
We’ve built my office into the back so I can work from anywhere. This career gives me the financial freedom to pursue this dream and the way to work from wherever I choose. It doesn’t get any better than that!”
— Vicky Heron
“My goal when I set out 7 years ago was to build a flexible, enjoyable, profitable copywriting business that would integrate well with my life as a busy mom of four. Today, I work about 30 hours a week and earn a good income doing so. And of course, I love my work. Most of my work is in the natural health field, but I also do some financial writing, plus an occasional project for other industries. I write copy for websites, ads, sell sheets, postcards, newsletters, package and label copy, and brochures.
The copywriting field is so broad and deep and vast that aspiring copywriters shouldn’t have any trouble carving out a niche they enjoy.”
— Eileen Coale,
“It seems like yesterday that I wrote to you from the Grand Tetons about my first copywriting job.
Well … it practically WAS yesterday! Just 4 short months ago. And I’m still in my RV, now enjoying the incredible vistas of Arizona. Working on the road is working out beautifully … it’s a perfect fit.
That’s why I’m so thrilled to share this with you. Because I have just nailed down my first $8,000 copywriting job!
But it’s even better than that. In addition, I’ve already made $4,025 the past two weeks, for a total of $12,025 … and January’s only half done!
I can’t thank AWAI enough. Believe me, it’s not overkill when I say the Copywriting program has literally transformed my life.
Thank you for helping me realize a lifelong dream.”

“AWAI’s programs have been invaluable. Although being a writer appealed to me, I thought that it meant being a poet, novelist or playwright. You might as well put starving in front of those three! AWAI showed me there was an entirely different venue where writing was valued and rewarded. Copywriting allows me the chance to live and work wherever I choose. In the future, I would like to live in Europe a year or two. In the past 18 months, I’ve been paid for 26 sales letters.”

“I take just ONE client and pull in $6,000 – $8,000 a month … ”
“In 2008, I heard the word ‘copywriter’ for the first time. In 2009, I became a ‘full-time’ copywriter. In 2010, I earned twice what I had ever earned working for someone else. By 2011, my taxes were more than I used to earn in a year in the service industry.
“None of this would have been possible if it weren’t for AWAI.
“Today I write copy for some of the biggest marketers in Health and Financial publishing. And some exciting entrepreneurs.
“The skills I first started to develop when I cracked open the Accelerated Program for Six-Figure Copywriting can now earn me over $10,000 a month in fees … if I decide to fill up my schedule with paying work.
“When I want to work on my own projects, I take just one client and pull in $6,000 – $8,000 a month.
“I do the work on my terms and on my schedule (within reason).
“What did it take to get to this point? Not too much …
“You need to be smart — common sense smart, not book smart. You need to be highly motivated to be independent. And you need to be able to string together a few coherent sentences.
“Everything else you can quickly pick up from experience and from resources like AWAI.”

“I had some big moments this year. We bought a new house on the 8th hole of a private golf course here in Knoxville. I paid off all my outstanding credit card and student loan debt. I paid off a car two years early, a motorcycle four years early and we’re now doubling up on my wife’s car. We’re remodeling the house — cash. And we’ve got six months living expenses in the bank.
“But it’s not about the dollars coming in, it’s about what the dollars can buy: freedom and options. I now have the freedom of knowing that my stuff really is my stuff. If I lose my biggest client, I’m still okay because the car, the motorcycle, the home improvements — they’re all paid for.
“And because I don’t have that pressure of making the sale with every client, I can actually be very picky about who I work with. That’s freedom”
