Quick Tip:
Stop Being a "Student"

Success experts say that the words you use to describe yourself have a lot to do with your level of success.

People who tell themselves "I don’t know how to dance" are much less likely to become good dancers than those who say "I’m learning to dance."

It’s very important to give yourself positive, success-affirming messages.

So, stop calling yourself a copywriting "student." From this day forward, call yourself a copywriter. Plain and simple. Because that’s what you are.
