Mike Connolly Has Found
His Ideal Copywriting Job
Circle of Success Member on the
Road to Six-Figures — Working Part-Time

Mike Connolly starts most days with yoga and visualization. He writes for clients just three days a week. And he always has time in his schedule if he needs to care for his special-needs son.

With close to six-figures in income from his freelance copywriting jobs, Mike is happy but ready to boost his income even more.

Just a few years ago, this sort of success would have seemed out of reach.

Back in 2009, Mike’s real estate holdings were suffering and, deep in debt, he was forced into bankruptcy. After meeting a friend who wrote copy for a living, he decided to try copywriting as a way to escape his financial nightmare.

Soon after he found AWAI and joined its Circle of Success program, which gave him access to every AWAI program. He got the training he needed to master long-form sales letters, email copy, website optimization, among other in-demand skills he needed to wow his clients, as well as the business-building strategies to land high paying copywriting jobs.

It paid off with a steady marketing and copywriting gig with a friend. Then, through smart networking, he landed copywriting jobs with Robert Skrob, founder of the Information Marketing Association, and legendary copywriter David Deutsch.

His career has only accelerated from those breakthrough projects. And Mike says Circle of Success was one of the essential ingredients of his success.

“My copywriting career has been like a snowball, gathering momentum and mass as it rolls to where I am now close to six-figures. AWAI has been essential in helping me really hone my chops as a communicator and serves as a wellspring of ideas,” says Mike.
