Writing is my guiding philosophy of life.
It’s not a passion or a purpose. It’s the way I live.
Because I write, I think of ideas.
Ideas lead to things I can sell. Writing helps me sell these things.
I live for writing well…
I’m an addict.
If I can’t write well for two days, then something is wrong with my life. If I can’t write well for three days, then I cancel everything until I write.
It makes me happy. Many things make me happy. But every moment of the day is about writing for me. Nothing else. Not money. Not my career. Not my relationships. Not even my kids. Everything else comes in second.
Which sounds like a mental illness. Maybe it is. I love my kids. I will do anything for them. But first… be quiet until I write.
Building the skill of writing is one way I choose myself every day.
Without writing I would have no career and no self-esteem…nothing.
Writing is what put me on LinkedIn’s Top Influencers of 2015 list.
Bill Gates, Richard Branson, and Mohamed El-Erian were ranked #1,#2, and #3 – all are three billionaires.
LinkedIn ranked me #4 because I’m a writer.
Writers rule the internet. It’s all content and copy.
Videos are scripted – someone wrote them.
That gadget on Amazon – someone wrote the product description.
The review you use to determine whether you buy – someone wrote it.
Building your writing skills is one of the best ways to make money online.
For example, you could become a copywriter.
Copywriting is one of the most in-demand skills for online businesses. Every product needs to be sold.
My friend Mark Ford started out as a copywriter. So did one of his partners.
Both are now multi-millionaires.
Both used their copywriting skills to build several successful businesses.
Mark is very rich now. He lives in his dream house, a Spanish style villa right on the beach.
Writing was one way he chose himself.
Mark’s business got so big at one point that he started training people to write copy.
And many of them became six-figure copywriters. At least one of them worked for a company in Baltimore but lived and raised his family in Paris.
Some went on to start other businesses using their copywriting skills.
Then his businesses got so big that Mark didn’t have time to train enough new copywriters personally.
So he designed a training course.
Many of the people who went through this course also became six-figure copywriters. I know several of them personally.
They all had something in common…
Writing brings me happiness.
It also brings me opportunities, income, and money.
If you’re a writer like me (or want to become one) then copywriting might be right for you. I don’t know.
Maybe you can. Maybe not.
I couldn’t ever predict that writing would bring me the things it has.
I just fell in love and wrote and life happened.
I can’t tell you if it’ll work for you…
But I can tell you I’ve seen it work.Share This Post
