Why I Hope I Don’t See You at
Bootcamp Next Year …

Bootcamp has just finished and I’ll be back to my “cave” (as my wife Linda calls our home) in the mountains.

That’s where I’m happiest, and that’s where I like to spend most of my time. But I love going to Bootcamp.

And for all the many new strategies and ideas I still learn there, the one thing I love best about Bootcamp is meeting new AWAI members and renewing old friendships.

I especially make a point every year to try to meet personally with Circle of Success members I’ve worked with in the COS Targeted Learning Programs. Putting faces to names is a special treat for me. And being able to share ideas of my own — and to provide a little guidance if needed — makes my teacher’s heart happy.

One COS member I’m glad I didn’t meet …

But I didn’t meet with one COS member I’d had in my Headlines and Leads Targeted Learning Programs. And I was really ecstatic I didn’t meet him in person.

Sound harsh to you?

Well, it isn’t. You’ll understand when you read this brief email I got from Anthony C. about a month ago …

What a difference a year makes! I'll miss you at Bootcamp this year. My extended family and I were comped a fall vacation in Baja as a bonus for completing a project ahead of schedule and under budget. The only catch was that it is during Bootcamp. So I'll catch you next time.

What a great reason for missing Bootcamp!

Anthony earned this family vacation because he took all the secrets and strategies he’d learned as a member of COS and applied them in his new copywriting career.

This is what you, too, can do as a COS member …

You can learn these same secrets and strategies that Anthony did in COS Targeted Learning Programs … for free.

You can learn them from AWAI programs like the Masters Program for Six-Figure Copywriting … all of which are yours free as a COS member.

You can learn them when you sit in on the high-powered, career-boosting sessions at Bootcamp … which you can attend for FREE FOR LIFE.

Not just about the best copywriting training for free …

Next week, I’m going to tell you in greater detail about the numerous benefits you get from being a Circle of Success member. But today, I’d just like to reflect on why I think Anthony was able to make this huge leap in his career. Why he could say, “What a difference a year makes!”

Let’s face it. Changing careers and going into something as new as copywriting takes a lot of guts … drive … and determination.

It takes commitment to keep on going forward. Sometimes, that going can be tough. Life gets in the way. Family, friends, and your current job all make demands on your time.

It’s easy (if you’re not careful) to put aside your dream of becoming a six-figure copywriter — just for a little while — to take care of these demands.

You know what happens. Your dreams get pushed further and further down.

The beauty of Circle of Success is not all the free programs. The beauty is that Circle of Success helps you stay on track. It helps you achieve your dreams … in spite of those demands that can so easily derail you.

Circle of Success is much more than access to the finest copywriting training resources available anywhere. Circle of Success is a support system that trains you, supports you, and keeps you moving forward.

What could Circle of Success do for you and your career?

Maybe next year, I’ll get an email from you, apologizing for having to miss Bootcamp because, like Anthony, you’ve been comped a great Baja vacation.

As I said, I’ll tell you in detail about benefits of being a Circle of Success member next week. But don’t wait until then to find out more about being a member. AWAI always limits enrollment. Katie does this so new members can receive the utmost personal attention.

To keep that promise, Katie will close Fall Enrollment on November 8th. I urge you to learn more about the Circle of Success right now … before this opportunity slips away.

Click here right now to get the biggest boost of your copywriting career.

I’d love to hear from you if you’ve decided to take that huge step toward successful copywriting.

Until then, keep writing.
