Congratulations …
Freelance Copywriter and Marketing Consultant Rick De Lima
Added to AWAI’s “Wall of Fame”

AWAI Member Rick De Lima worked behind the scenes as a copywriter for years before finally deciding to pull back the curtain and strike out on his own. According to Rick, he hasn’t looked back since.

“Once I realized I could make a living ‘turning words into profit,’ it was like a huge load was lifted off my shoulders. Instead of watching a clock or wasting time in useless meetings, I can dictate how my time will flow. The freedom to work when I want from any location I choose seems like a dream. But I can tell you it doesn’t get any more real than this.”

Some of Rick’s favorite niches to write for are info products, health, and web copy. He’s even been invited as a keynote speaker at one of his client’s business seminars to be held later next year.
