@mcc

Your 'friends' are holding you back.

If you are worth it people will pay for it.

Cowboy philosopher Will Rogers said, "It's not what you can ask for, it's what you can get?"

People don't want to pay you what you need, they want to pay you what you are worth to them.

It's different, no?

@mcc - just get started.

Recently, I've share my top strategies on writing -
http://bit.ly/writers-block-bye
http://butterflyformula.com/3-steps-to-avoid-writers-block/

..but quite frankly even folks like Stephen King and Anne Lamott go back to simply "writers write.."

I know that most folks here will want to throw herrings at me for saying this but I recommend just using a Facebook page if you don't have a blog.

Sure, ultimately you may want to have a website - but don't let that stop you from..

Exactly, Bill! If I can provide value to people, then they will hire me.

Thanks, @jycmba. I like your suggestion of starting with a Facebook page. I think anything to get started is a good idea.

I hung out with a group of writers for a while.

Turns out they wrote their memoir or a book of poetry or got an article published once ... and started calling themselves writers.

Truth was, they hadn't written anything since.

I told them, "You guys aren't writers. You are wroters."

They kicked me out.

Wroters? LOL

I've done more writing than the people you've mentioned -- and continue to.

Thanks for the link, @jycmba.

@mcc - y, make "VALUE BEFORE REWARD" be your mantra and you CANNOT go wrong - you will be DOOMED to SUCCEED!

Another great analogy is from Casey Nesbitt - he calls it the Tarzan Method..



The main point about using a Facebook page is that it offers all the capabilities you want in a webpage. (Gee, is that why Mr Zuckerberg may be our first Trillionaire??)

..and my main thing is don't let tech get in the way of your #1 job right now - find your hungry audience and start feeding their spirits with what they need that only you can provide.

Thanks again, @jycmba! I love the idea of "Doomed to succeed"!

Facebook really is wonderful in that way!

@Belew @mcc -




Inspiration comes from all around us - we just have to reach out and share it.


I wish I had a secret recipe that I can share, but just like how "writers write" - "wanderers wander"

I was doing a presentation this afternoon on Inbound Marketing and one of the attendees asked about a copywriter. Contact me privately (thewiz@ourhutch.com) if you like and I'll hook you up.

No prob @tienny -

p.s. Looks like the time code for Casey's video didn't save - you can jump to 5:41 to find the Tarzan Method.
