  1. I want to start making an income, however small or insignificant. As with many things I have ever done, once I get going, I'm good. So, I want to start making a cash flow in 2012 so that I can, if I choose to (or it's chosen for me) start the copywriting cash flow and keep it going. (And maybe even pay off COS completely by the end of 2012--wouldn't that be a good thing?) COS is going to be a big help!

    Thanks to all you guys at AWAI for providing a wealth of great training and information.

  5. By January of 2012 I will have my Complete Information Package ready and waiting to go! It's a large task, and coupled with everything else I do through AWAI, it looks almost impossible to do. But, by taking it piece by piece, an hour a day, you'll be surprised at what gets done.
    So that's Goal #1.

A place where religion isn't shoved down your throat but rather a place where it is safe to be who you were born to be.

  28. I already have a number of goals written out, but one of my copywriting ones is that I will be paid $5,000 for my copywriting work by the end of June 2012.

    Oh, here's another goal:

  47. My goal for 2012 is to start jounaling every day and take time to write conversationally - a 180 degree change from the technical and legal writing my current career requires. My long-term goal is to use my writing skills to transition into "retirement", otherwise known as working as much or as little as I want wherever I want. And as for "wherever", I want that to be lots of places I've never been before. Success will take more specific goals but for now, its baby steps ...

    Guest (Sarah Hirsch)November 24, 2011 at 3:58 pm

  53. I started with AWAI on the copywriting course, but never turned in my final letter. Fear, I guess. I've taken the knowledge from that course, and others, and applied it to my real job. But I'm in a job that is dependent on not only my "boss" but as an educator, the whims of the public with tax levies. This economy has helped me realize that I need to have a back up plan. My immediate goal is to complete the AWAI Vitamin letter and submit it. Having that feedback will bolster my confidence to "Just Do It." I will continue to study, but I need to take the action of sending in this assignment. After all, I don't tolerate late assignments from my students, so what gives me the right to be late? Thanks AWAI for this opportunity.

    Shawn MausNovember 24, 2011 at 4:06 pm

  54. I will leave my full-time job and start taking on more clients. I'm humbled and amazed that I have clients now for the bit of non-job time I have - now to get a website up, get the word out, develop information products to sell, and build a business as I have wanted to do for years!

  64. In 2012, I've got a few goals! But, I think that in order to achieve them, I must learn new "habits".
    Negative thoughts and procrastination tend to creep, so the goal there is to stay focused on "my" goals daily with positive momentum, no matter how trivial or "far-fetched" they may be to others. The "what ifs" and "fears" have held me down. Accepting this and making changes have already helped me tremendously! :D

  176. I did my research, and confirmed that awai has the best copywriting program available. I purchased the program, but due to my job, I didn't finish it. I've come to realize that if you want something bad enough, you have to make a committment(and work)to achieve your goal. It doesn't just happen! I have resolved to finish the 6 figure copywriting program by march of 2012. Then a website, and a first client by june. I want to be out of the factory by the end of 2012. I believe this is possible.

    tw hicksDecember 3, 2011 at 4:12 pm

  177. To no longer be indigent but self-sufficient to the tune of a healthy body with a six-figure income. And achieving both by exercising a long suppressed desire to write for a living.

    2012: Learn copywriting and web writing.

    Regaining a life of possibilities, wonder and playfulness will be the reward for achieving my goals. Thanks to AWAI, I see that happening.

    GMCDecember 3, 2011 at 5:13 pm

  178. Stay focus and religiously implement Daily Goal Setting techniques to create a Money-Making website on one of my passion, photography.

    Jennifer AdamsDecember 4, 2011 at 12:21 pm

  187. I will complete AWAI's copywriting course by June 1, 2012. I will identify a niche. I will secure projects that pay enough for me to quit my tedious, despair-inducing, creativity-snuffing, filing job in Cubeville by 12/31/12. I will face fear of failure and move forward in spite of it.

    Ms LeahDecember 4, 2011 at 1:13 pm

  188. My goals for 2012? 1. To be organized. 2. To be able to schedule my time wisely and to accomplish success with my business. 3. To remain focused on what's truly important in life. And 4. To become healthy and fit so I can be around for a long time, God willing!

    Guest (HwitBera)December 5, 2011 at 3:25 pm

  204. To completely replace and exceed my current employee income with income from contract writing and photography.

    The challenge is that I'm making $96k now, so I have a way to go to see writing and photography replace my current income. On the upside, I have every other week off, so it's entirely possible.



    ScottDecember 5, 2011 at 3:44 pm

  205. My goal for 2012 is to officially launch my healing practice. By January 2012, I will create my website, blog, newsletter, business cards and flyers.

  206. My goal for 2012 is to take my copywriting business to the next level in every conceivable way. I want to truly make a difference for my clients, helping their businesses to thrive, and in doing so, reaching my own income goals. In 2010 I went to Bootcamp, in 2011 I got my first paying clients, and in 2012 I will have a breakthrough year with challenging new projects, new ideal clients, and will blow my income goal through the roof.

    AimeeDecember 5, 2011 at 4:10 pm

  207. I've been writing in the financial services business for years. But now, and after having my eyes opened (a lot!) at Bootcamp 2011, I really NEED to enter the Christian Market. It's not really about the money - it's about my personal desire to reach out to other fellow Christians regarding issues that are important to this group. Maybe I can "ding" the universe just a little bit by utilizing my skills?

    Gene SzajDecember 5, 2011 at 4:26 pm

  208. My goal for 2012 is to finally get my writing career off the ground. My short-term goal (the first quarter of 2012) is to get my first client and to have sold at least one freelance magazine article. My goal for year-end 2012 is to have at least four new on-going clients.

    Karen FDecember 5, 2011 at 4:58 pm

  213. 2012 is MY year - to create my website; to be approved to submit photos - and then do so! - to at least one stock agency; to take that first step to becoming independent. Exciting - with a little bit of scary thrown in: that's MY 2012!

  216. One goal I have for 2009 is to become better-skilled at writing web copy--with the help of closely studying Nick Usborne's _Copywriting 2.0_.

    Guest (Elizabeth Shih)December 5, 2011 at 5:06 pm

  217. Having taken many courses via AWAI I have enjoyed every single one. Last focused on Internet Research Specialist.
    Now that I have finished that course my goals for 2012 are to tweak my website to incorporate IRS. Obtain paying clients and grow that business throughout 2012.
    Earning income online has been so enjoyable over the years since 1996 in various areas. I look forward to earning more and gaining other clients in other venues as well.Thank you AWAI!

  227. My goal is to write my blog spot two times a week in 2012. Also, start earning income ($500-1000 per month) from my writing and speaking business.

    I am also redoing my money-making website for 2012. That site is my creative outlet...I use it to practice web writing and it is a way to help other people with advice and tips.

    My husband and I also plan to write an ebook together in 2012.

    SueDecember 5, 2011 at 5:31 pm

    Kim ADecember 5, 2011 at 5:35 pm

    Guest (Jeanne Davant)December 5, 2011 at 5:41 pm

  236. My Goal for 2012 is to get 3 more ongoing good clients in my niches of health/Fitness and Art/Art Materials. These types of clients need monthly projects completed and are easy to work with.

    Guest (Suzanne)December 5, 2011 at 5:43 pm

  237. My new goal for 2012 is creating and making a success with my blog While continuing working with my new client.

    wvcopywriterDecember 5, 2011 at 5:46 pm

  238. My goal for 2012 is to keep my husband home for good. He's tried to come home a couple times, and the bills end up driving him back to crummy j.o.b.s. In 2012 he's coming home (in Jan/Feb) and staying home to work on our business with me.

    We're also aiming to eliminate our debt, and buy the new 4-wheel drive vehicle we desperately need by the end of 2012.

    Guest (Lindsey F R )December 5, 2011 at 5:47 pm

  239. My goal is to write incredibly persuasive copy to sell my to-be-written (also well) downloadable online program on Small Business Steps to Success that will give me passive income. My inspiration for writing is from Dan Kennedy's program for AWAI on becoming an info-marketing copywriter, with me as my own client!

    Guest (Jan Schochet)December 5, 2011 at 5:47 pm

  240. Goal #1:Get my website LIVE by 1/11/12.
    Goal #2:Learn my community(audience).
    Goal #3:Earn $100,000 by 12/31/12.

    Guest (Bryan Aucremanne)December 5, 2011 at 5:53 pm

  241. I've been trying to fight it for a couple of years now, so I can be like everyone else--you know, all the freelancers.

    But I can't keep fighting it.

    I have to have multiple projects going at once to be able to focus and get things done. (Why oh why am I like this?)

    My problem has always been that I start too many and have to quit some. So I've tried and tried to just work on one thing. It's just not me. Doesn't work.

    My goal is to find a nice balance and have just the right amount of projects for my brain (and not too many), and make it work while shooting for a goal of $60,000 for 2012.

    This will involve hiring someone to clean and a virtual assistant. I've already got my assistant, and a written plan.

    I'm off to see the wizard now to ask Him to help me reach my goal!

    Guest (Christiane Marshall)December 5, 2011 at 5:53 pm

  242. My goal for 2012 is to become the best copywriter possible so I can help people grow their busineses and become prosperous. I'll take as many AWAI courses as I can and apply what I've learned so I can reach my goal. The AWAI Army can turn this economy around!!!

    Michael DrummerDecember 5, 2011 at 5:54 pm

  243. My ultimate goal for 2012 is to completely finish both the Six-Figure Accelerated Copywriting course and the B2B Copy course and put them to use immediately, so that I can earn at least $25,000 so that I can begin paying off my student loans and become debt-free in 2 years.

    Guest (Sheila)December 5, 2011 at 5:57 pm

  244. I was laid off from my reporter job, and began my own local online news source within three days of the layoff. My top goal is to double the readership, while scooping all of my print competitors as often as possible. I also want to build more passive income products, especially from my photography, so that I don't have to attend every meeting in town and write it before posting. I want to hire freelancers to do most of the work.

    MAMDecember 5, 2011 at 5:58 pm

  245. My goal for 2012 is to launch my writing business. I don't know everything, but with all I've learned from AWAI, I know enough to help my prospective clients (and myself) do well -- even in this economy.

    Carla BDecember 5, 2011 at 6:00 pm

  246. My goal is to finally join Circle of Success - no matter what - when it is offered next year. But before that, finish all the book reviews I've been asked to do.

    Bette ArnoldDecember 5, 2011 at 6:03 pm

  247. My goal is to have my Internet Money Club business up and running by the time I come to Delray Beach in February for the Golden Ticket session. I'm really excited about this IMC opportunity for two reasons. It will fulfill a dream of mine to have my own business and it will also give me a great opportunity to use all the copywriting skills I've learned as a Circle of Success member.

    Guest (Bob Maucher)December 5, 2011 at 6:06 pm

  248. My goal for 2010 and 2011 was to earn 6 figures. I believe I will succeed in accomplishing that in 2012. My goal is to exceed $120k with my copy/consulting business and to invest in property in Costa Rica to take the first big step toward my version of The Writer's Life.

    I had thought it required a certain number of clients to achieve this goal but I'm finding it depends on the client. :-) I plan to add at least one more client who needs diverse marketing and partnering in 2012.

    Guest (Cyndee D)December 5, 2011 at 6:08 pm

  249. My goal is to find a new home(just lost my old one) by learning to be the best writer I can be through AWAI's programs. Yes, I want to make money so I never have to worry about getting my home taken again.
    I know I can do it through AWAI, I totally trust them to get my life on the right track.

    TammySummersDecember 5, 2011 at 6:10 pm

  250. Using what I've learned from the Accelerated Copywriting Course, I will launch a professional blog on January 1, 2012. My goal is to have 25,000 readers by December 31, 2012. AWAI's content has been my motivation and resource, and I will be drawing heavily from AWAI as I make this goal a reality.

    Guest (Dr Mike B)December 5, 2011 at 6:10 pm

  251. I'm committed to earning and saving $30,000 as a part-time copywriter freelancer next year. This will enable me to quit my J-O-B in 2013 by February 28.

    Guest (JD Reed)December 5, 2011 at 6:17 pm

  253. My most benevolent goal in 2012 is to begin to help countless unknown recipients to realize THEIR goals through my assistance as a Grant Writer Program graduate!

    Guest (Jaffra A)December 5, 2011 at 6:19 pm

  254. My goal for 2012 is to become a writer, who is financially free (based on my writing success)and who travels at will - with a base in Ecuador(achieved that first step)- and enjoys the company of a writers' community on line who share research and ideas with a mutual goal of expanding our successes and broadening our horizons. Thanks AWAI

    JeanneDecember 5, 2011 at 6:28 pm

  258. My primary goal in 2012 is to begin living "the writer's life" by sunset on the vernal equinox. Summer will see my work blossom and by fall the harvest will "fill my barn" and "stock my pantry".

    Brian WinfieldDecember 5, 2011 at 6:29 pm

  259. By June 2012 I want to have finished the two books I've been working on all 2011 and have them published. My desire is not only to make money from the books, but to be recognised as a good writer who can finally live the life I dream of. Which mostly includes doing nothing except travelling to research my next book, writing and eating cheese cakes all day.

    Guest (MartO)December 5, 2011 at 6:38 pm

  260. I will complete a money-making website that will add value to my reader's lives and will eventually provide me with an income that will pay my bills.

    Guest (Janet )December 5, 2011 at 6:39 pm

  261. My goal is to use Michael Masterson's goal setting techniques to try and reach my top four goals...

    I won't share them all here, because - hey - some of them are potentially embarrassing.

    But I will share one... Because I feel like I'm cheating you otherwise...

    And that is to start on my way to my five-year plan of earning $1 million in the next five years as a direct response copywriter...

    Guest (Aaron)December 5, 2011 at 6:40 pm

  262. My goal is to realize the wisdom I have gained over the past 56 years and wake up each day knowing that I can achieve my dream of working from anywhere in the world, any time of day or night that I choose, wearing whatever I darn well please. I am the CEO of my life and my goal is to go to bed every night and know that I have done at least one positive action to get to my dream.

    CarolDecember 5, 2011 at 6:41 pm

  263. I'm finally going to step out of my own way and walk into the writer's life I've been dreaming of.

    Amy ADecember 5, 2011 at 6:43 pm

  264. My goal is to WRITE. All of my life, people have said to me, "you should write a book". Why, because my life has truly been the epitome of a Soap Opera? After 30 years of Corporate life, and one year of soul searching; self discovery, I now (took me long enough)know that I just need to WRITE and write well - to impact and support goals of others. I am committed to learning the craft of copywriting and being successful, whereby I will proudly say "I am a copywriter" by the end of 2012.

    Guest (Jo Houghton)December 5, 2011 at 6:45 pm

    RDWDecember 5, 2011 at 6:46 pm

  267. My primary goal for 2012 is to have my website, up and running by February 1st. My secondary goal is to stop letting fear undermine my success and to better utilize the support of my AWAI colleagues.

    Terri KDecember 5, 2011 at 6:49 pm

  268. Having left the Radio Industry after three-decades, a very sad outcome to a long career, my goal is to take the copy writing skills I already possess, add them to the resources, I consider myself lucky to have found, within AWAI and start putting the pieces together to launch a business that will provide the security I have long desired, but have never enjoyed. It's time for those first steps!

    Danny MackDecember 5, 2011 at 6:51 pm

  269. As a retired minister I have no retirement benefits. This means I have to make one of the many online ventures I have tried actually bring in money.
    So far it has all been money going out.
    So I plan to do the accelerated program staring at me from my desk.
    Blessings to all of you writers may 012 be your best year ever!

    Guest (Rev Sandi)December 5, 2011 at 6:52 pm

  270. About two years ago, I started writing a novel in the mystery-thriller genre. Though my progress was interrupted by quite serious health and financial roadblocks, I now have 100,000 words written. My 2012 goal is to finish the first draft, revise it and publish it.

    Guest (Barry)December 5, 2011 at 6:56 pm

  271. Since 2007 I have had surgery or gone through chemotherapy to fight stage 4 Melanoma, my goal for 2012 is to get through the year without having to take time away from building my freelance writing business and finally get to live the writers life!

    krimagerDecember 5, 2011 at 6:56 pm

  272. I am writing my first book on business for ballet dancers. It concerns money, marketing, and how to plan for life after ballet, which many dancers don't do. Now it is easier because of the Internet and online college courses. I am also planning a business resource site for dancers to help them succeed. I am so excited!

    Sherlock26December 5, 2011 at 6:59 pm

Fingers crossed, I want to have the courage to get started.

    After taking the Accelerated course and the Money-Making Websites course I received an email from AWAI introducing me to the Turn Your Pictures into Cash course and I am HOOKED. Is it wrong to be excited about the purchase of a tripod? I'm the proud owner of a brand spanking new Manfrotto tripod and I feel like a kid at Christmas. I think the last time I felt like this was when I was a kid - at Christmas.

    PHOMDecember 6, 2011 at 2:00 am

  386. My goal is to earn at least $25 a day, every day, from side projects not related to my "day job".

    It doesn't sound like much but it adds up to a lot over 365 days, and it will help me to be creative and not pooh-pooh other opportunities.

    Guest (CanCan)December 6, 2011 at 5:24 am

  387. Two unique goals this year;
    1)I am working with a local non-profit organization to raise funds through copywriting. This is something new to them (other than a web page) and I am looking forward to improving their financial results. I am increasing their marketing awareness with copywriting for both local and Internet non-profit fundraising.
    2)Increase my knowledge of apps and begin a copywriting/iPhone (and/or Android)apps website displaying the power of copywriting. Should be interesting!

    Guest (Chad)December 6, 2011 at 5:28 am

Time to start focusing on what I want to be when I grow up. My love of writing and photography will merge into a new carreer/lifestyle in 2012, if I can just get organized! AWAI gives me the inspiration and confidence I need to believe in myself and make it happen. I could really use an ipad, too!!!

  431. I've had the best month ever this December, grossing about $1500 so far writing resumes. My goal for 2012 is to have add other products such as executive bios public speaking about writing resumes, and job searches to my portfolio.
    Thanks, AWAI and especially Rebecca Matter, for your knowledge and encouragement!

    studiosinger6076December 6, 2011 at 11:32 am

    Guest (Todd T)December 6, 2011 at 11:39 am

  433. My 2012 Goal:

    To take the incredible skill set that I have built through the AWAI courses that I have invested in and put an end to the little voice in my head that keeps saying "you don't know enough".

    I believe that success in living the writer's life lies in accepting the fact that you will always be learning and that you know more than 99% of the people out there.

    So my new 2012 mantra is:

    I will learn, I will earn and I am worth every penny my clients will pay me.

    Guest (Sherri Ashley)December 6, 2011 at 11:46 am

    Nancy WillsDecember 6, 2011 at 12:05 pm

  437. My #1 2012 goal is to push, no, blast through the fear and anxiety that preceeds almost every new project I want to accomplish. I have a lot to give. I will write then share details of the process with clients who want coaching and cheering on.

    Patricia WallsDecember 6, 2011 at 1:16 pm

  443. In 2012 I will swap the amount time I spend at my j-o-b with that spent freelance writing, i.e. I will be a full-time freelance writer, and in the corporate world only part-time.

    Bob EdelsteinDecember 6, 2011 at 1:28 pm

    Guest (David Grebow)December 6, 2011 at 2:07 pm

  448. Instead of relying only on myself to accomplish my blogging goals, I have teamed up in a joint venture to establish a Blogging Workshop for regional bloggers. This will increase my own exposure and help me develop new blogging clients I can write for. When you have accountability to others it does make you, as a freelancer, meet your goals regularly.

    RustyLaGrange December 6, 2011 at 2:11 pm

  449. My goal is to double my income whilst working the same hours, so that I can still control my time and have plenty of time for fiction writing without comprising my fiction or my copywriting endeavours.

    Guest (EMC)December 6, 2011 at 2:21 pm

  450. My goal for 2012 has some layers to it but, for me, the ultimate high would be to land that first critical client who’s willing to take a chance on a writer with limited professional experience. It would go miles toward legitimizing my love of words and writing as something beyond a hobby. I have been unemployed for several years due to a chronic health issue, and getting a client “under my belt” would not only gratify my desire to work at something I love to do , but also would justify my beloved husband’s faith in me. He gave the green light for me to purchase the Accelerated Program for Six-Figure Copywriting when we could ill afford it, and I’m forever grateful to him for his confidence in me.

    CocobabyDecember 6, 2011 at 2:32 pm

  451. My 2012 goal is to set up my blog "Teale Talk About Town" finally and write and take pictures. I will not let the fact that I had my iphone stolen this summer with all the information and pics stop me. People, remember to back everything up and use the new tracker program. I hope everyone who submitted a comment will achieve their 2012 goals.

    Guest (roguegirl)December 6, 2011 at 2:37 pm

    LiveAlohaDecember 6, 2011 at 2:43 pm

    Kevin AdamDecember 6, 2011 at 3:46 pm

  460. I launched my full-time business this year and have done well, so far. My goal for the new year is to create enough cash reserves so that I can begin fine-tuning my niche with the types of writing jobs I tackle. That way, I can start to define my career rather than my career defining me.

    Guest (dawesm)December 6, 2011 at 3:47 pm

I´ve finally put my roadmap down on paper (thanks to Rebecca´s recent webinar!), got my objectives set, a break down of the steps and my deadlines in place for each one. The secret to success is ACTION and I´m on a roll! 2012 is going to be MY year! ;D

    Guest (Jan Marie Mueller)December 6, 2011 at 3:57 pm

  466. Ok, so I've developed a new goal - one that I'm definitely going to complete by 1/31/12: my own website as a copywriter. I'm currently in the middle of "Build Your Freelance Website in Four Days Webinar Series" + I'm now on page 141 of "Copywriting 2.0" by Nick Usborne. Both are fantastic sources of material. Oh yeah, I'm also in week 4 of COS - Headlines. I also have a full-time career running my own investment advisory. I write a financial letter every 2-3 weeks. In my spare time, I like to craft pens on a lathe. When the weather permits, I tremendously enjoy hopping on my Harley with my wife for a ride in the country around here (Wisconsin - go Packers!) So, I'm sort of busy - but I'm STILL very determined to get that website up and running!

    Gene SzajDecember 6, 2011 at 4:10 pm

  467. My goal is to write in my journal daily and find inspiration from journaling.

    Guest (Jill H)December 6, 2011 at 4:10 pm

  468. I will complete my new AWAI course How to Write Your Own Money-Making Websites and have at least 2 earning websites up and running.

    JaymeeDecember 6, 2011 at 4:11 pm

  469. My goal for 2012 is to finish the Copywriters Accelerated Program within 6 months and start putting my new acquired skills to task.

    GeorgevalDecember 6, 2011 at 4:19 pm

  470. It's taken me awhile to realize it, but now that I've finished the "Six Figure Accelerated Copywriting Program", I've realized that I can use it not only for copywriting jobs, but to market my own writing.

    My goal for 2012 is to use the skills that I have learned in the program to market the movie script and novel that I have completed in 2009 and 2010, respectively.

    S TraegerDecember 6, 2011 at 4:27 pm

  471. My 2012 goal is to exit my premature retirement by starting and sustaining a full time writing career, focusing on grant writing and nonfiction e-book publishing, launching a terrific website by mid-January.

    Richard LaceyDecember 6, 2011 at 4:28 pm

  472. In 2012, I will add 3 new natural resource industry copywriting clients to my marketing business ... with the intent to double my present full-time work income. With that solid foundation, I can leap forward into an independent freelance business when the moment is right!

    Franklin Scott CrawfordDecember 6, 2011 at 4:41 pm

  473. My goal is to get Nick Usborne's Copywriting 2.0 and be making good money during 2012, while engaged in a satisfying and worthwhile occupation which brings enjoyment to my life.

    Guest (Kristen Harris)December 6, 2011 at 4:58 pm

  475. My goal is to take the skills and knowledge I have learned from AWAI(and too many other resources to mention), put them to use to help others and not just myself. Meanwhile, creating another income stream for me and my family.

    Brian Todd LoseyDecember 6, 2011 at 5:13 pm

    Guest (KathPoole)December 6, 2011 at 5:23 pm

  478. I recently purchased the 6 figure copywriting and copywriting 2.0 programs. My goals are to complete these programs by February or March 2012 and start my copywriting business. I intend to develop and grow my copywriting business so I can quit my full time job by the end of 2012 if not sooner. I want to develop multiple streams of income including online marketing an coaching. Income goal is aggressive hope to earn $1,000,000.00 in 2012. Hefty goal but possible.

    winwin008December 6, 2011 at 5:29 pm

  479. My goal is to write what I am thinking, feeling and hoping for each day.

    Guest (Annette D)December 6, 2011 at 5:33 pm

  480. My primary goal for 2012 is to finally quit stalling and begin the path to realize my dream. In addition to the monetary considerations that most of us have, I have wanted to be a writer since I was in college but elected to pursue what I felt at the time was a "safer" school. Now, 30 years later, in addition to the economy having hit my area of practice particularly hard I find myself facing the hard reality that I have not been happy with my career path for a long time and still regret not pursuing writing. It's never too late is the mantra that I have adopted in connection with this venture and, hopefully, the rest of my life.

    Guest (Robert)December 6, 2011 at 5:43 pm

  481. Finish an online software product I'm developing and have it profitable by March of 2012.

  482. My (money generating) writing goal for 2012 is to complete the Accelerated Program for Six-Figure Copywriting and to get and complete my first paid copywriting assignment by June, then to create a steady copywriting side business through the rest of the year. My fiction writing goal is to complete the 2nd revision of my first novel (I completed the first revision in 2011.)

    Guest (Debbie Gaudet)December 6, 2011 at 5:50 pm

  483. My goal is to take what I've learned from AWAI this year and begin my career in direct response.

    Guest (Tom Wanek)December 6, 2011 at 5:53 pm

  484. In 2012 I am going to (finally!) launch my Money-Making Website, and each month (a) expand it with a significant amount of new content, and (b)achieve a higher level of income from it. Then I'll use this as a showcase for my web writing & SEO skills, and get 3 paid clients by the end of June..... at which point I will review my goals for the second half of the year!

    MaraDecember 6, 2011 at 6:00 pm

  485. My Goal is to have three months straight where I earned $1,000 each as a result of my writing practices. I would like to establish a following of 500 people with my writing material.

    Guest (Tom T)December 6, 2011 at 6:01 pm

  486. My goal for 2012 is to focus on one niche and to have the courage to start, to take a chance, and to understand that failure is merely a lesson. AWAI's Six-Figure Copywriting course will show me the path. My goal is to follow it.

    Allan MillerDecember 6, 2011 at 6:11 pm

  487. My goal is to finish the AWAI Accelerated Course by January 15 (my 50th birthday), set up my copywriting services and earn at least $50,000 by the end of 2012. I also want to sign up for Nick Usborne's How to Write Your Own Money-Making Websites program so I can begin focusing on making passive income from my passions by writing better and more consistently to change my readers lives.

    CarolODecember 6, 2011 at 6:24 pm

  488. Take a group if 10 people on a mini holiday in my local area and write an article on the adventures we encounter during our travels.

    In 2012 I will submit my 1st Travel Article to a travel magazine with a great photo and get paid for doing so.

    CarollyneDecember 6, 2011 at 6:31 pm

  489. My 2012 1st goal is to write my a Travel Article about an interesting location I have visited in my home Province of Alberta, Canada and submit it to a magazine for publication.

    My second goal is to put together a mini golf holiday and offer it for sale to fellow golfers. Another great topic that will offer me many opportunities to write travel articles for woman golfers interested in group golf trips.

    Having fun is the name of the game for me!

    CarollyneDecember 6, 2011 at 6:54 pm

  490. My goal for 2012 is to niche myself as a B2B copywriter for the Packaging and Beverage industries. I need to rewrite my website with this in mind and create a "buzz piece". Realistically, I think I can make $35 - $45,000 by the end of 2012. That way I can payoff my debts, leave my 9-5 and start freelancing full time.

    mwegemerDecember 6, 2011 at 6:57 pm

    Purple TaraDecember 6, 2011 at 8:38 pm

  499. My goal is to embrace the AWAI Program in its entirety and prove that my money and time have been well spent. To finally create the life we all crave. Even those who are afraid to even whisper that it is possible for them to have complete control over their own destiny/life.
    My restaurant letter will be completed as a masterpiece and sent in for peer review by 58th birthday ( 12/15/2011).

  505. My goal is to move foward from my past disappointments and to let go of any insecurities I have involved with my writing so thst I can write freely. I really struggled the past two years so I am hoping that two years of setbacks push me up higher and better.

    Guest (Morenike)December 6, 2011 at 9:40 pm

  506. Write, write and write. Making money on the Internet, writing about topics I'm passionate about, is my focus. Complete the Internet Money Club and generate serious income online!

    MADecember 6, 2011 at 11:19 pm

  516. I'm bored with what I do for a living in the Information Technology field. One of my objectives is to overcome my inclination to procrastinate and finally begin a new career as a copywriter. I just joined the Barefoot Writer's Club and am looking forward to exploring this "underground" club and its many opportunities such as the Secret to the 1-hour work week and The Lazy Writer's Path To A Six-Figure Income.

    William DavisDecember 6, 2011 at 11:23 pm

  517. I will have a full-time job I can do at home while I care for my wife.

  518. I will just get started.

    Guest (Cheryl)December 6, 2011 at 11:49 pm

  519. My first goal for 2012 is to create a money making website by successfully completing Nick Usborne's "How to Write Your Own Money-Making Website" to allow me more time to spend on becoming a freelance copywriter.

    Anne CatanzariteDecember 7, 2011 at 12:15 am

  520. My goal in 2012 is to finish the COS Course, pick up MY award at Bootcamp NEXT year. I will remember what I told myself (and others!), that: "If I don't finish this program, I will never know what might have been" (anon.) Thanks for the support AWAI! HEERE WE COME INTO 2012!

    Gypsy RoverDecember 7, 2011 at 12:18 am

  521. My goal for 2012 is to attend the 2012 boot camp I think it will help me get out of my shell so that copy writing/the writer's life will work for me.

    Guest (Pat)December 7, 2011 at 12:40 am

  522. My goal for 2012 is to get a travel artical published.

    Guest (ka3mtj)December 7, 2011 at 1:07 am

  523. Well, I am on the first part of my goal setting, I just purchased Nick's Write a money making website. I went to bootcamp in October and I'm working on a couple of specs from the job fair. This next year is going to be a remarkable one for me, as I am finally working towards the writer's life I have wanted for the last couple of years but hadn't moved forward. Now I am and its wonderful. Thanks AWAI!!

    Carol ABQDecember 7, 2011 at 1:15 am

  524. One of the most amazing things that happened in 2011 was discovering that the skills I have as a published writer of fiction can be put to use in copywriting as well!

    After purchasing the Accelerated Program, it inspired me to go for one of the job postings at AWAI. The assignment required that I affect people's emotions with my words. That assignment turned into 3 more. Then 10 more.

    My goal for 2012 is to quit my job and jump full-time into my new job as copywriter! Thank you, AWAI!

    Guest (Tracy Lesch)December 7, 2011 at 1:42 am

  525. I am working as a writer on my terms...I have complete flexibility and control over my time and my schedule so I can be "mom" again!

  526. Goal for 2012 find out how to work from home, not being able to has cost me already and I cannot afford to lose any more family. ~Love Life.

    PotawatomiDecember 7, 2011 at 2:06 am

  527. My goal is simple, (but profound and life changing for me): Between now and the end of 2012, I commit to doing the right things long enough in my spare time (Something Joshua Boswell said Oh-too-well.) to make at least $25K by the Dec 31 as a Web-Writer. Modest? Yes, but for me this will mark the moment when I know I can leave a job & career I absolutely detest and begin living life on MY terms... Doing the things I've always dreamed of. Writing (books), educating my son...

    TimDecember 7, 2011 at 4:20 am

  528. My goal for 2012 is to sell my photos and be able to make a six or seven figure income doing just that. I am an awesome photographer and writer.

    Guest (Melody Walters)December 7, 2011 at 6:06 am

  529. I would like at least one high-paying client by March 31, 2012.

    Guest (Maryanne)December 7, 2011 at 6:29 am

  530. Somehow, I always seem to get roped into doing alot of work for other people for little or no pay. For the last 11 years I've been trying to develop my own business and independent income to get out of this cycle. This year, it is my goal to actually have my own income, independent of the "hampster wheel".

    Guest (Danyelle)December 7, 2011 at 6:43 am

  531. My Goal to finish the six figure copywrhigt cource.

  532. I have one goal, and that is to stop procrastinating and get on with it. Just do it - I want to write, and I will write - with the help of the AWAI

    Guest (Marilyn)December 7, 2011 at 8:02 am

  533. My Goal is to apply what I am learning in the Accellerated Copywriting course to my new work in sales. Yes, write for me, as a start, and transition that into writing for the writers life.

    DonaldGDecember 7, 2011 at 8:05 am

  534. My goal for 2012 is to do lots of international traveling and write about them and take photos. I just applied for my passport and it should be in around Feb. 2012. So, I'm all set.

    Guest (PaulaM)December 7, 2011 at 8:11 am

  535. I will be launching my Internet Research business in January of 2012, and my goal is to be earning enough by June of 2012 to quit my full-time job and exclusively be doing research for copywriters and marketers. The AWAI program has been invaluable in providing the framework for me to launch my business and I am working on a website now. 2012 will be the best year ever!!

    Guest (Deb)December 7, 2011 at 8:35 am

  536. By January 31, 2012 I will have my Freelance Website completed, begin building my list and have at least one product review site operating.

    Guest (Mark Harrington)December 7, 2011 at 9:43 am

  538. My goal in 2012 is to write 2 or more control-beating direct response letters.

    Up until now I haven't received many direct response jobs.

    The principle is to stretch me to do greater things - to make a practical difference in the lives of those with whom I work.

    Guest (David Allen)December 7, 2011 at 9:52 am

  539. My goal for 2012 is to take the knowledge that I have gained from AWAI and the COS program and begin my writing career and the privilege of enjoying the "Writer's Life".

    Mark HarringtonDecember 7, 2011 at 9:58 am

  541. My husband wants me to buy a new desk. I agreed: my third pay check in 2012 will be used to purchase it.
    I will locate/purchase what is necessary to upload pictures to my blog, hydroponicallyyours, by January 9.

    Deborah2012December 7, 2011 at 10:23 am

  542. My goal is to launch my Green Building Copywriter niche and generate 3 clients in the first quarter 2012. I also want to get five clients who need my services in social media consulting. Just got one yesterday, so I'm on my way!

    Donna MosherDecember 7, 2011 at 10:29 am

  543. My 2012 goal is to create and monetize a blog that caters to the niche market of people who want to crew on other people's yachts. I will use my own experience to write my blogs and invite guest bloggers.

    Guest (Thomas M Smith)December 7, 2011 at 10:44 am

  544. In 2012 I will become a published author. I've already taken some important steps in getting to this point, and 2012 will be the year when I make the leap from "dreaming- wannabe writer" to "published author". One big step I plan on taking to achieve this goal is signing up for and completing the The Accelerated Program for Six-Figure Copywriting through AWAI.

    Guest (Courtney Lantz)December 7, 2011 at 10:47 am

  545. My goal is to get my copywriting business to the point of making at least mid- 5 figures for 2012 (from just getting started in 2011).

    Mark CunninghamDecember 7, 2011 at 11:02 am

  546. My goal for 2012 is to not only land my first paying assignment (soon, I hope!) but to also be able to move into this field full time by the end of 2012! This is something I've really wanted to do for at least the past year, but have never made myself sit down and write something...until a couple of weeks ago when I submitted a spec assignment to an offer with bootcamp online. I loved it!! I've also had some third-party feedback that makes me believe I CAN do this! I AM EXCITED!!!

    Susan RuthDecember 7, 2011 at 11:11 am

  547. My goal for 2012 is to create and promote two of my blogs, using the "How to Write Your Own Money-Making Website" course. I'm going to generate an automatic cash flow of $3000 a month or more, so I will never have to rely on Unemployment payments (or ANY outside job) ever again!

    MissnishaDecember 7, 2011 at 11:18 am

  548. My main goal for 2012 is to complete the first challenge in the Master's program.

    Guest (Richard)December 7, 2011 at 11:27 am

  549. My top two goals for 2012 are to continue building my internet marketing and copywriting business using AWAI's Internet Money Club resource as well as the Accelerated Copywriting Course. AWAI has the most amazing tools available for success!

    Thefirst Noel December 7, 2011 at 11:36 am

  550. Now more than ever nonprofit organizations need top notch copywriters to help them reach out to find new donors and motivate existing donors to fund their programs and services. That's why my goal in 2012 is to become one of those copywriters by completing the AWAI course Copywriting for Nonprofits by January 31 and putting my action plan into effect by February 14 (yes, Valentine's Day!). To their success - and mine!

    JudyB-RaleighDecember 7, 2011 at 11:52 am

  551. When it comes to my AWAI investment, my first goal for 2012 is to introduce my 24 year old son to AWAI. Since graduating college, he has been a political campaign communications director as well as a campaign manager... but for little income. He's tired of being someone else's voice and is now considering launching his own freelance business. Introducing him to the AWAI programs and going with him to the DelRay Seminar could significantly assist him in fulfilling his entrepreneureal dreams.

    Guest (David Schweppe)December 7, 2011 at 11:53 am

  552. The goal that I have set for myself involves taking action to call or write daily 10 people on my list of prospective clients.

    I realize that business will not spontaneously come to me. I must actively seek it...AND I WILL!

  563. Besides participating in COS which I signed up for at Boot camp - my goal for 2012 is to research my niche thoroughly, lay in the website with content, identify and target the essential first tier of leaders in this chosen industry, connect with them and establish relationships. This will lead to further contacts as well as advertisers....and endless copy to write.

    Andria GoldinDecember 7, 2011 at 1:37 pm

  564. In 2012, I will stop allowing things to happen, and start taking control of my writing life. I will renew my commitment to regular writing on my money-making website, and will proactively contact potential customers instead of waiting for them to come to me.

  568. One goal for 1012 (there are several): Become better established in my writing niche through the development of the website being submitted to the end-of-year Build-your-own Website Challenge.

    Loraine DegraffDecember 7, 2011 at 2:16 pm

  569. My goal for 2012 is to be consistently earning more from writing projects than from my 'government job' so I can give up the 'job' by December 2012 and live the writers life... and if it happens sooner than that ... even better!

    Anna G December 7, 2011 at 2:31 pm

  570. It's complicated! I am a skilled writer and photographer, able and wanting to teach English and write. I am about to publish a collection of my poems and still trying to get published my feature article about Tuscany and one about local upscale B&Bs. So, I need a place where I can do all of those things(and more)and use my intellect, passion, desire to travel, and ability to write, teach, and photograph. I need saving! That is, a big leg-up.

  577. Within a very tight budget, I must decide which of the many AWAI programs to purchase first. Then my 2012 goal is to earn a living as a freelance copy writer, specializing in sustainable food,(sustainable food-related)travel and culture, and other public health and fitness issues.

    findingthewayDecember 7, 2011 at 3:13 pm

  578. I just want to get a job - any writing job! I have had nothing since last January. I picked up a good job in September, got an advance, put it in the bank and was fined $12 when their check bounced. They do not answer the phone, emails or letters. I got a tiny job,sent a contract, asked for payment and they vanished. My 1 long-term client pulled out. 100s of dollars worth of prospecting down the drain. Website is #1 but not 1 client from it! I'm spooked!

    jeanieDecember 7, 2011 at 3:15 pm

  579. My goal for 2012 is to double the income I made in 2011. With the help of AWAI and my hard work this is an achievable goal.

    Jonny Bahk-HalbergDecember 7, 2011 at 4:48 pm

  588. I made my living in IT for nearly 20 years. I had chosen IT because in college I found it interesting and challenging. But after a several years I realized I didn't love IT even though I was good at it and made a very good living doing it.
    The last few IT jobs I had ended in my being laid off. It was hard to continue to look for yet another IT job when I didn't love it and expected to be laid off again.
    But I didn't know what I wanted to do for my career. I took a part time bookkeeping job. Then I took a second part time job in retail. It turns out, this was my turning point. I began doing resumes for friends and coworkers because I was running into many people who were looking for a new career. I'd had a lot of practice with my own resume, so it was easy to help others with theirs.
    I love writing resumes! So a few months ago I turned it into a business. I get to tell people great things about themselves and get paid for it! I took the AWAI resume writing training course to impr

    Guest (Lisa Martin)December 7, 2011 at 4:59 pm

  589. My goal for 2012 is actually 3-fold:
    - To be fully established with my business website...and attaining my presence and offerings as a "Go-To" expert as a writing professional
    - To obtain at least 3 full-time clients by mid-year
    - To continue honing my knowledge and skills toward the self-enhancements that will make me the very best I can be as a writer

    Krystian KnightDecember 7, 2011 at 5:02 pm

  590. Make enough money to support my family. Establish myself as an essay contributor for various magazines, make $$ from my photographs, create calendars and greeting cards, learn how to market them, get a scholarship for my college bound daughter, win contests for essays, poems and photography, finish writing my book on formatting legal documents using Microsoft Word and get it published, get my website 'Subway Secrets' up and running, stay healthy and grateful.

    CuddebackDecember 7, 2011 at 5:03 pm

  591. My goal for 2012 is to re-review the Accelerated Program and earn a minimum of five hundred dollars per month each month in 2012 using what I learned. I will take this money and buy the Fundraising and Copywriting 2.0 programs and adopt these two niches. I am eighty-five years old - doing this would be a great accomplishment. I will come back next life and start copywriting much earlier.

    rogerc84December 7, 2011 at 5:16 pm

  592. 1. Daily study, practise and apply my Copywriting 2 & Money Making Websites programs to completion.

    4. Secure two or more regular well paying clients by middle 2012 & happily succeed in all of them.
    5. I am earning at least $1,000 a week, and increasing.

  595. My goal for 2012 is to learn to earn enough from copy writing to support my girlfriend.So she can move back to Tucson from Mexico.Then I can join her & we will continue our plans to be married.I know I can do it!

    Guest (mick)December 7, 2011 at 5:57 pm

  596. My goal is to develope the self-descipline to devote 2 hours a day to starting this adventure, to learn as much as I can, as quickly as I can and to move forward.

    GIGGLESB2UDecember 7, 2011 at 6:07 pm

  597. Pink slips went around work last month. I was safe this time, but that train is still barreling toward our department. I bought the Accelerated Program last week. My goals are to get through it ASAP and start replacing my income - pronto! I want to step off the tracks under my terms, not HR's.

    LovelyDecember 7, 2011 at 6:15 pm

  598. My goal is to have 10 additional full time clients who need my expertise in writing for them.

    Guest (VJ)December 7, 2011 at 6:26 pm

  599. My goal is to finish the Accelerated Copywriting Course and the Masters Course.

    To have 5 clients

    To receive an income of $1200 per month from my writing and researching.

    Nevada BigfootDecember 7, 2011 at 6:28 pm

  600. Finally I settled down and know what I want to do...write for the web. I'm studying Nick's course now.
    No mon ain't fun, and has kept me back from a lot of things. I need a new computer, for if I had a client, I could't do him justice, for sometimes I can't get into my emails, nor recive any.
    So first off I'd say I need a computer, and second, a goooood client.

    Elizabeth23December 7, 2011 at 6:35 pm

  601. My goal for 2012 is to write every single day. I wish to take my life in a whole new direction and truly pursue my passion and dreams of writing.

    ShanaDecember 7, 2011 at 7:07 pm

  602. My goal for 2012 is multifaceted to compliment all that I’ve learned from AWAI’s Accelerated Program for Six-Figure Copywriting in 2011: to identify a niche, to actively engage with other copywriters, to get a website up and running and to learn more about writing for the web and social media so 2012 will close with me that much closer to a six-figure income (if not already there).

    Guest (Teri Weber)December 7, 2011 at 7:15 pm

  603. My goal for 2012 is to begin to live the life I've always wanted. I've been writing for 10 years and now I intend to make 2012 the year that I finally move forward and start enjoying what I do on a weekly basis.

    Guest (Kyle Robinson)December 7, 2011 at 7:31 pm

  604. My goal is to let go of all the excuses I use to keep me from becoming the writer I want to be. I want to start earning from writing in 2012.

    Guest (Ruth)December 7, 2011 at 7:32 pm

  605. My goals to achieve by the end of 2012 are:
    1) Complete "21 Days to Your Freelancing Success Abroad" and be successfully doing freelance contracts.
    2) Complete AWAI's updated and expanded "Making the Leap" program and be well on my way to being a freelance writer.
    3) Be my own boss.

    Guest (Amergin)December 7, 2011 at 7:53 pm

  606. I have read Nick Usbornes book New Path to Riches and now I am signing up tonight to take the course. It's time to stop over-analyzing and the paralysis that goes along with it. If I can learn to put up one money-making website....I can put up ten. So that's it that's all- I'm going for it and it is my 2012 key objective to get it done!

    Bruce MaximDecember 7, 2011 at 7:59 pm

  607. I have two courses out that I haven't even started: B2B and Autoresponders. My goal is to finish them both by the end of February and be making money by June, 2012. I may go back and take more but first I have to prove to myself that I can do this! The nagging doubts that this is all a scam, that it may work for others but not for me, that I don't deserve it--those doubts need to be shot dead, and I'm the only one who can do it. It's up to me so my goal is basically to get off my butt and DO IT!

    ZeeksmomDecember 7, 2011 at 8:26 pm

  608. My first and foremost goal is to complete the AWAI Copywriting course within the next three months. My second goal is to earn enough money to get me off the Social Security merry-go-round. A third goal is to begin helping my kids and grand kids to their success in life. My 4th goal is to accomplish the first three in 2012.

  610. It is my intention to:
    1) set up my website by February 2012;
    2) post my articles on it every other week on the subjects that interest me most - personal development,travel, fun;
    3)work on my writing skills at least 45 minutes a day;
    4) write my first copy by summer 2012; and last but not least - read all the AWAI subscription programs I own to get that avalanche of useful tips at the right time!!!(this one by February 2012).

    Malina77December 7, 2011 at 8:58 pm

  611. In 2012 I will finally finish the "Six-Figure" course, make a strictly- copywriting site, become a social media maniac, follow my mentors and suck up clients like a Hoover, followed by saying goodbye to 9 to 5 in an cubicle, flourescent lighting, and way too much coffee. This is the year I stop thinking about life and start living it.

    LJ InnesDecember 7, 2011 at 9:09 pm

  612. My goals for 2012 include enjoying the journey to become a high quality and well recognized copywriter, which will include studying some of AWAI's fantastic programs, writing regularly to develop my craft, and having the opportunity to work with interesting clients as a copywriter.

    Mark 1December 7, 2011 at 9:11 pm

  613. My goals for 2012 are: 1. Set up a revenue-producing website with Nick. 2. Start writing my first fiction/non-fiction project. I have taken several AWAI courses. They have all been helpful, but if there is one course that can help anyone no matter where their interests lie, it is Accelerated Copywriting. This course gives you the essential background in understanding the marketing and sales psychology that is the foundation of all good writing.

    ggwoodDecember 7, 2011 at 9:12 pm

  614. I am going to launch my money-making website early in 2012 and have it paying off handsomely by the end of the year having had a lot of fun with it and having met a lot of wonderful people along the way. And, hey, wish me a happy birthday today! For those who remember their US's Pearl Harbor Day!

    Cheryl EwingDecember 7, 2011 at 9:29 pm

  615. I have always thought what a wonderful life writers must have. Of course I never dreamed in a million years I could write, but I somehow wound up taking the Ultimate Travel Writer's Guide. To me being able to travel and write about my experiences would be the ultimate dream. Taking that course was the push I needed to take the plunge. I am now writing fairly regularly, but not even close to making a living at it. I now know that I will be a writer and next year that is my goal.

    Mary CDecember 7, 2011 at 10:04 pm

  616. My goasl for 2012 are to win the 10k challenge; Write ten to twelve spec assignments to build my portfolio for clients and get at minimum 2-3 clients for a consistent cash flow in order to live the writer's life full time by the beginning of 2013!

    Guest (Natalie)December 7, 2011 at 10:13 pm

  617. Nick Usborne’s guide, “Make Money as a Social Media Expert,” inspired my goal for 2012. I read the book in one sitting. Now I’m reading it again, encouraged by Nick’s honest guidance and cautionary wisdom. Next I’ll work through the program, set up accounts, and focus on strategies for success as a Social Media Consultant. On the AWAI website, at my COS page next to Nick’s book, it says, “You Own It!” Yep, I own it, I’m going to work it, and in 2012 I will be a success at it!

    Toni PearsonDecember 7, 2011 at 10:14 pm

  618. My intention for 2012 is to diligently work on my AWAI goals with a clearly-defined, action-oriented purpose.

    My ultimate goal is a new career, one of my choice, not one that has been decided for me. What works for me is to back up the “wishful thinking” with a business mentality. My AWAI investments are career investments – not hobby purchases. Not something to do in my spare time, but as a proactive, regularly scheduled part of my day.

    I’ll be building at least one money making website, building a freelance website as a gift to my sister for her business, finishing the Accelerated Guide to Copywriting, venturing onto social media, and mastering my fear of flying in order to attend Bootcamp!

    Fran GhiazzaDecember 7, 2011 at 10:17 pm

  619. My goals for 2012:
    1. to go back through Nick Usborne's awesome Money Making Websites Program.
    2. Complete and launch my money making website (which I am currently building)
    3. Make $30 000 in 2012 from money making websites.
    4. to remain focused on my goal of the Writer's Life.

    Tanya MarCiaDecember 7, 2011 at 11:02 pm

  621. Having recently started the Copywriting course, my goal is to finish it by February 15, 2012. My goal after that is to obtain my first paid writing assignment. Ultimately, my goal is to earn enough income as a writer to replace both my and my wife's job income. Freedom never sounded so good!

    Guest (Tom Musso)December 7, 2011 at 11:05 pm

  622. My goal is to complete the Accelerated Program for Six-Figure Copywriting and from there pursue the following: DRM, Web Writing, Social Media, SEO & AutoResponse, Speech, Article & Creative Writing.

    I've always loved writing, but unsure what form would best create a steady income stream and how to go about attaining that in an efficient way with ongoing support. I’m convinced AWAI’s training and encouragement are indispensible to achieving my goals.

    Plus, it looks like a lot of fun!

    EdwardDecember 7, 2011 at 11:43 pm

  623. My goal is to create at least 3 money making websites that bring in a minimum income of $5000 per month by the end of 2012. At that point I can leave my job as a Limo driver and give 100% of my time to being a copywriter where the sky is the limit....

    Limo BillDecember 8, 2011 at 1:06 am

  624. #1 goal: Have our park review web site up and running by 2/21/2012 as a 10 year birthday gift to my grandson who is my partner in this project.

    #3 goal: Have a short article with photo accepted and published in International Living magazine by this time next year.

    Janice TakashimaDecember 8, 2011 at 1:07 am

I'll be spending more time on AWAI Online so I'll be experiencing The Writer's Life fulltime by December 2012. Of course, so looking forward to my first BootCamp 2012!, it's always nice to take a trip to Florida! No more waiting, I'm ready for my dreams to manifest.

I'd like to double the income I made this year, use my copywriting skills to improve my fiancé's website (he custom builds banjos!) and outside of the writing and career goals I have a marathon to run in April! :-)

  644. The Goals of a future Copywriter for 2012

    I have a very simple, perhaps not easy, two part goal for the coming year; part one is to take full advantage my new AWAI membership,to utilize all the resources associated with my membership and to devour and expand upon the skill AWAI skill set, the content, cocepts and ideas. The second part, a practical and important target to keep in my sights is to secure at least 5 copywriting assignments by the end of the year.

    Guest (Camille Barbone)December 8, 2011 at 12:55 pm

  645. My goal is to work in my comfy clothes, with my cat on my lap, and to see the snow outside, knowing I do not have to go anywhere. My cat is 13, so I am choosing an agressive timeline. :-) In January, I'm going to finish my AWAI program. In February, I'll publish my money-making website. As I continue to grow the site, I will focus on which AWAI class to take next and keep growing until I can quit my day job.

    Inspire8December 8, 2011 at 1:34 pm

  646. #1 Goal for 2012: Build a money-making website so I can "buy" myself the time for goals 3, 4, 5, and 6.

    #2 Goal: Build a client base that brings in higher fees for fewer hours (ties in with #1...)

    #3 Goal: Volunteer for (and contribute to) my four fave charities.

    #4 Goal: Spend more time as a working storyteller.

    #5 Goal: Help my kid sister out on her hobby farm.

    #6 Goal: Take some of those trips to Norway I've dreamed about.

    Hmmm, looks suspiciously like, "Live the writer's life. NOW!"

    BillieDecember 8, 2011 at 1:43 pm

  647. My goal for 2012 is very simple in words. I want to finish my Vitamin Letter and go on to my copy of the Masters Program. After I digest that program, I have the Writing for Catalog Program. I work 50 to 55 hours a week, including most Saturdays. I get very little time to devote to AWAI studies. I plan to eat faster and sleep shorter to get these programs finished. My future is calling me!
    Happy Holidays to you all!

    K BarbaraDecember 8, 2011 at 2:22 pm

  648. My 2012 goal is to have gainful copywriting projects that will enable me to work around my children's schedules. I will use the skills and best practices tips gained via AWAI. By May 2012 I will have my first money making website. I will have 1 website up and running per month thereafter. By 2012-end, I will be able to use my project profits to fund attendance to an AWAI bootcamp.

    CeciliaHDecember 8, 2011 at 2:25 pm

  649. My goal is to STOP holding myself back. How? See myself as a successful writer. Believe it. Take one step - every day - to make it happen. I think I can... I know I can... I will!

    Guest (Vera Petkovsky)December 8, 2011 at 2:56 pm

  650. 2012 is launch year!

    I will populate my [started]website and have my first e-book done by Jan. 30th. I want a regular paid writing assignment where I can utilize my creativity and innovation by the end of February and a stream of passive income.

    At the start of every week in 2012 I am writing my goals for the week to keep me on target.

    I will also get to teach on the basis of my website content by spring. I can't wait!

    laurieDecember 8, 2011 at 3:19 pm

  651. Before my birthday in June, I will write a "How To" e-book on Social Media. It will be in terms everyone can understand.

    I will have my daughter's money making website revised to the point that she's making money, and train her how to tweak it (she's going to be 10 in March).

    And I will have two new clients.

    This will be a most successful year!

    Kellie CraftDecember 8, 2011 at 3:30 pm

  652. I had finally taken the leap to purchase the accelerated program, but due to an out of state move and being rushed into a job for less than half my former salary I was unable to come up with the balance. Of course, we are now in the middle of the holiday season (extra expenses) as well.

    That being said, my goals for 2012 are to: complete my purchase by the end of Jan; complete the program by the end of Feb; and secure my first PAID assignment by the end of Mar. I know I can do this!

    LoriBDecember 8, 2011 at 3:48 pm

  653. I am selling my financial planning practice the end of 2011, taking some much needed down time to finish the Accelerated program, create my marketing plan for 2012, fully commit to making this copywriting career a success, and launch!

    JudyBrownEyesDecember 8, 2011 at 4:23 pm

  654. My goal for 2012 is to help other entrepreneurs find available knowledge content such as provided through AWAI and to refer them to these resources. With the booming activities throughout the international marketplaces and the limited quality of content and knowledge base teachings available such as provided in AWAI's library, it will continue to be an excellent networking tool for us. Our active roles in both South and North America continues to open up many opportunities for us and those we refer. So now our efforts and activities will be to focus on being trained by AWAI and its many offered courses and to become successful in our endeavors to be multi-lingual freelance commercial copywriters and professional networkers. AWAI will be key to providing content for many of our clients in the coming years. We hope to hear how we can help AWAI in these opportunities. Continued success to all.


    RainMakersNetworkDecember 8, 2011 at 4:40 pm

    Stan RDecember 8, 2011 at 5:07 pm

  657. To stay focused, my goal is to ORGANIZE MY OFFICE and USE THAT SPACE PRODUCTIVELY TO GENERATE 6 MAJOR NEW CLIENTS IN 2012. This means hanging up a large calendar on which I write daily goals and check them off, including 1 hr/day studying an AWAI program; organizing my reference books, articles, and swipe files so I can find examples quickly; putting my leads list right in front of my nose and contacting 3 new prospects/week; and getting rid of the clutter so I can feel energized and WRITE SOMETHING EVERY DAY.

    Candace McClenahanDecember 8, 2011 at 5:29 pm

  658. My goals for 2012 are as follows:

    3. Finish my novel!
    4. Work hard on finding a publisher for my novel!
    5. Make enough money as a copywriter to be able to spend half my work week pursuing my novel writing.

  696. My goal in 2012 is to create some passive income. Thanks to AWAI, I am a successful copywriter, but it is a job-to-job situation. I have several projects on the back burner that need to be scheduled and completed: a money-making website, and a book project I have done a lot of work on and not followed through with completely. Putting these goals in writing will get them on my to-do list. Thanks for the encouragement, AWAI!

    Guest (Starr)December 9, 2011 at 4:35 pm

  697. To learn to write about the benefits of my books and coaching program in a way that reflects my passion for helping people to achieve their greatest goals.

  703. Expand and elevate are my two theme words for 2012. I will increase my income, my number of clients, and aspire higher, stretching my comfort zone by at least a few sizes. lol I already have time planned to write my specific goals down & plan for their implementation in 2012. I'm ready to grow in a big way!

    Guest (Beth Earle)December 9, 2011 at 5:48 pm

  704. My goal is to write two e-books and post them for the Kindle and Nook markets. I'm working on the first book now. I'm working toward generating enough passive income that I may quit my jobs and write full-time.
    My next goal is to update my websites so they will begin contributing passive income toward my aspiration of working at home (or even better, traveling) and writing.

    Guest (Suki)December 9, 2011 at 6:12 pm

  705. Last month I fulfilled a long-cherished goal of writing & publishing a novel - I had THREE novels published on the same day. All are available on Amazon! In 2012, my goals are: develop a course or training program for AWAI members, write a novel & a non-fiction book, & build copywriting earnings to at least $1000/week. (The latter is particularly urgent and needs to be met this month - can't wait for 2012. So I'm on it!) That will enable me to attend Bootcamp 2012, and join Circle of Success.

    JDecember 9, 2011 at 6:27 pm

  706. My goal for 2012 is to prove to myself and other "60 somethings" that it's never too late to fulfill a dream by completing one course in writing (travel or copy writing) and to submit one article for publications before 03/12.

  711. My goal is to expand my writing enough (partially by taking the AWAI copywriting class) so that I can make a decent living, travel a little bit, pay off my debt, and pay for my mom to have a reliable car and food. I can't support the both of us right now.

    Guest (KFD)December 9, 2011 at 7:12 pm

  712. My goal for 2012 is to earn one retainer contract in the B2B market writing landing pages and auto-responders; netting $2,000 a month. This will require me to continuously improve my copywriting skills, and marketing myself, moving me closer to becoming a master copywriter. I will support my family living the writers life while living in Ecuador. I am Dedicated, Energized, and Motivated and will not accept failure as an option.

  719. In 2012, I'm burning any bridge that will stop me or slow me down from living the writers life. First, I'm quitting my day job; 2ndly, finih my AWAI Accelerated program for six figure copy writing; get my money making website up and running;author my first book;and conveniently be at my first boot camp.It's either i live the writers life, or i live the writers life. All I've got in 2012; so help me God, so help me AWAI, i will live the life.

    Guest (henry)December 10, 2011 at 7:54 am

  720. My goals are twofold. Having just been laid off, my primary goal is to get the best job in the world, one that allows service to others and uses the best of my talents and abilities. Secondly, to investigate much more closely the writers life and take the first steps in using that life to my advantage.

    Guest (Jeff M)December 10, 2011 at 8:30 am

  721. My SMART Goal for 2012 is:

    Stop procrastinating and

    Make time to finish the 6 Figure Accelerated Copywriting Program by 31 March

    And then complete the Web 2.0 Copywriting Course by 30 June 2012 enabling me to

    Rework my Money Making Websites so they generate more passive income and

    Then by Making The Leap on 31 December 2012 I will start living The Writer’s Life

    Giving me the opportunity to live life

    On my terms with no boss or staff around to stress me out

    Allowing me to have the time and money to do things I’ve never done before and the

    Luxury of working from wherever in the world I want to.

    Guest (Carol Reiley)December 10, 2011 at 9:41 am

  724. My goal is to leave behind self-doubt, and open to learning the craft of writing; to step out of my comfort zone of the past 20+ years of my current profession, and into new territory as a writer, into what I've always known inside me - that writing is a gift I've been given, but haven't yet fully developed. This is the year that changes. I plan to take the Accelerated 6 figure course AWAI offers, as my next step.

    deb svDecember 10, 2011 at 9:47 am

  725. My goal is simple? to have completed the rough draft for Internet Research Specialist an the Money Making Website program in my grasps before the New Year.
    This will give me a needed 1.5% raise in self esteem.
    Excellent New Year for all!!!

    Guest (Richard-moha)December 10, 2011 at 10:48 am

  726. My goal is to use my experiences as an Olympic athlete and my skills as a writer to inspire positive change in the world by: blogging regularly; expanding the scope of my online community; and developing a mastermind program.

    CameronDecember 10, 2011 at 11:18 am

  727. My goal in 2012 is to take advantage of the tremendous resources offered through AWAI by following their program in in travel photography and writing. As my life is already focused on these two passions -- photography and travel -- this will give me the opportunity to move in the direction that I have wished to, of making money by doing what I love.

    sarahljDecember 10, 2011 at 11:52 am

  728. I want to sell some of my work. : )

    Guest (J Miller)December 10, 2011 at 12:31 pm

  729. I've been in the small-market ad agency business for 25 years. In 2012 I'll transition away from the "all things to all people" business model, to a more exclusive focus on higher-end copywriting in a few well-defined niches based on my existing track record. I'll revise our website to reflect that focus, and monetize it with information products. I'm putting up at least one additional income-producing website.

    Greg GunterDecember 10, 2011 at 2:15 pm

  730. My goal is to get enough points to make it to the national sheepdog finals

    Guest (TWrider)December 10, 2011 at 4:02 pm

  731. Prove that can make money as a writer. need new profession to support self.

    P CruseDecember 10, 2011 at 4:38 pm

  732. My goal for 2012 is to write some samples so I have something to send out, find a few businesses to send them to, and mail to five or so each week.

    I know that sounds like a very small goal, but I work full-time and only bring home $1000 per month. My college loan payments are more than that - and my honey lives on disability, which only covers the mortgage.

    That's really all I can do. Your web copywriting intensive sounds great - but it's out of my league.

    Good luck to everyone in 2012!

    gluten-free gourmandDecember 10, 2011 at 4:57 pm

  733. My goal for 2012 is to launch my copywriting business and make six figures my first year. Quit my dead end J.O.B and launch my Niche tours business traveling in Asia and South America.

In 2012 I intend to break through my self-confidence barriers and use my skills in writing and regularly upload my best photos on to stock photo companies with the goal of selling enough to buy an SLR and a laptop in 2012. In addition I plan to submit copy to at least five magazines during the first 6 months.

    Guest (LAkayla)December 11, 2011 at 12:05 pm

  746. My goal for the upcoming year is to finally complete the Accelerated 6 Figure Copywriting Program. Every day when I return home from work, I see it sitting on the dusty shelf near my desk staring at me. Fear and lack of confidence have been speaking to me for too long, keeping me from putting them in their place and grasping the key that will lead me to a happier and more fulfilled life. Time is short and it is now time to take control of my life and to live it as it was meant to be lived.

    Alan HarmonDecember 11, 2011 at 12:18 pm

  747. My goal for 2012 is to take what I've learned from Steve Slaunwhite's, "Building Your B2B Business: Group Coaching," "Secrets of Writing High-Performance Business-to-Business Copy" and Nick Usborne's, "Freelance Copywriting in Four Days" and apply it to finally hanging out my shingle to announce, 'I am open for business!" 2012 will be the beginning of living The Writer's Life, when I'll get three clients, start paying off bills, and build a solid foundation for 2013. I can't wait!

    GaryDecember 11, 2011 at 12:19 pm

I can't lose!

    Guest (Janice Harmon)December 11, 2011 at 1:01 pm

  749. I have finally made the transformation from realizing I'm a writer to declaring myself as "A Writer." 1. I visualized myself as a writer. 2. I joined AWAI to hone my talent. 3. I made preparations by writing copy for several local businesses. 4. I stepped out on faith this month & ordered Nick Osbourne's "Money Making Website" course. 5. My dream has come to fruition. My heart is fixed and my mind is made up: In 2012, my goal: To make $100,000 & rise higher! Thanks, AWAI for the incentive.

  760. My goal for 2012 is to attend the Web Intensive in San Diego, to include AWAI as just one of my many well-paying clients, and to reach six-figures as a web writer. I guess that's really three goals. Yes, I AM an over-achiever!

    To that end -or beginning- my goal for 2012 is:
    Within 1 year I will have increased my monthly income by 300% as a freelance photographer.

    Z RobertsDecember 12, 2011 at 3:59 am

  764. My goal for 2012 is to stop being afraid. Afraid for my job, relationships,failure and even success. This year I will do it--go all out, finish the AWAI courses I have started and face the world with all of its possibilities. Change can be a wonderful thing. 2012 is going to be the year I really start to live MY life!

    Patricia-snowbirdwannabeeDecember 12, 2011 at 7:11 am

  765. 2012 is the year I make the leap. I have my Independence date set for June 1st, 2012. With intermediate goals of picking my niche by January 15th, and getting a paying client by March 1st. I have all the tools I need in place. 2012 is the year I say good-bye to the stress that has left my stomach in knots.

    Kristen DaltonDecember 12, 2011 at 8:20 am

  766. While I have many goals for the coming year, the one goal that I am really driven to achieve is getting that first professional business client.

    I started my business, KeyWords Media this year out of necessity and circumstance, and while I've been trying to study my AWAI Six Figure Excelerated Copywriting course I've also had to take whatever freelance writing jobs I could from the "Content Mills." Getting that first pro-client is my end to the content mills...this is my goal for 2012!

    Lew NDecember 12, 2011 at 8:32 am

  767. My biggest goal is to set more realistic goals as I plan my projects (and I'm not trying to be funny)! I have a TON of activities I'm excited about completing in 2012: the ONLY way I'll hit *any* of them is to improve how I set goals. I've always done well (1) when I'm organized with a good plan and (2) when I begin to gain momentum. And now I'm learning to program playtime into my planning. Otherwise, I'll become frustrated and resentful, and fall off the success wagon!

    no-more-excuses-DebDecember 12, 2011 at 10:20 am

  768. To make 2012 THE year to get off the fence, not only begin the Acellerated program for six figure income but to really jump-start my journey to the writer's life by planning NOW to attend the bootcamp in FL ( October 2012). Thank you for all the great information in your newsletters!

  776. 2011 has been amazing. I've increased my writing income by 150%, developed rewarding relationships with long-term clients, and every week I learn something new to help me on my journey.

    In 2012, my goal is big enough to scare me -- I'm committed to launching a blog on my website and posting a minimum of twice a week. Toward that end, I'm furiously amassing articles to populate it starting January 1.

    By the end of the year, I intend to be writing regularly for International Living...with the first objective the submission of a spec assignment by January 9.

    Jan PedersenDecember 12, 2011 at 1:19 pm

  777. Goal #1, gross income of $80,000 for 2012. #2, be working with my first client by March 31st. #3 continuing to fill all 3 buckets (writing, skill and business building) and adjusting as needed to reach goal #1.

    Guest (Dave Faris)December 12, 2011 at 2:19 pm

  778. 2012 will be the year that I plan to write and publish a book to help parents of school-aged children with Autism Spectrum Disorder. The diagnosis itself can be overwhelming--not to mention the anxiety of attempting to locate, understand and benefit from available resources. I believe that accomplishing this goal will inspire and encourage many parents to help their children succeed despite their learning challenges!

    WurdygurlDecember 12, 2011 at 3:49 pm

  779. My career goals for 2012: Finish my AWAI programs and start finding clients. I plan to be ready for the next chance to sign up for coaching, Bootcamp, or Circle of Success, and getting paying clients will make that happen.

    Guest (Liane)December 12, 2011 at 4:07 pm

  780. My 2012 goals are to replace my freelance mobile notary pay with my freelance copywriting pay. A noble effort I will accomplish by finishing Accelerated Copywriting course, showing up weekly at my Circle of Success classes, submitting spec assignments on a regular basis. I have it broken down by quarter and I will surpass each quarter by 25% of what my freelance mobile notary work has paid in 2011.

    donnainmontanaDecember 12, 2011 at 5:07 pm

  781. Finish the AWAI Accelerated Program for 6 Figure Copywriting course I purchased in July and start my freelance writing career!

    LC BillmyerDecember 12, 2011 at 5:10 pm

  782. My goal is to be in consistent action during my work day, and that means rising early, getting 4 hours of billable work done by noon, and getting my social media marketing calendar flowing so it functions smoothly with me having to always think about what needs to be done.

    KristinaDecember 12, 2011 at 5:31 pm

  783. Susan B. Anthony once said: “Every woman should have her own purse.” Cocoe Chanel designed a perfect little black dress that brought elegance to all women and never left a woman's closet. Harriet Tubman’s determination brought freedom to oppressed people.

    My goal for 2012 embodies the “yes I can" spirit of these women that'll launch the Perfect Little Black Dress Ink, web copywriting/online video marketing on my mother's birthday, January 8, 2012—the first innovative spirit in my life.

    Cocoe78December 12, 2011 at 5:36 pm

  784. My goal is to have at least one travel article published in 2012. I'm the writer and the photographer of the piece. The first on will be on Peru, as I've been there twice and am facinated by the country, culture, history and people. When people finish reading my article, they'll say "that's just what I felt when I was there!" or if they've never been, "WoW! I've got to go to Peru"

    Guest (Melanie Wood)December 12, 2011 at 5:42 pm

  785. I will get organized and finish all my projects. I will also use my time wisely to heal myself and change my sleeping habits so I can be more visible during the day and attract more clients for my small business. I also plan on buying many of Awai's current programs to help me.

    NormanDecember 12, 2011 at 7:23 pm

  788. My plan for 2012 is to take positive steps to ramp up my writing career. My goal is to visit the AWAI web site at least twice a week for the next year. Not only can I get leads for paying writing jobs, I can also find the encouragement I need by taking part in the forums.

    Guest (Lynne )December 12, 2011 at 7:50 pm

  789. AWAI has opened my eyes to the vast possibilities of not only earning well as a writer, but also using my writing skills to make a difference in the world. My goal for 2012 is to finish all the courses I've purchased from AWAI and get several new writing businesses up and running, as most of my current work comes from only a few clients. Thanks for all you do!

    Guest (Kris Morris)December 12, 2011 at 8:16 pm

Second, I plan to complete the Accelerated Program for Six-Figure Copywriting by April, get more corporate clients, and earn an income that will help fund the lifestyle I’d love to have.

    I'm tired of being afraid that I'm not 'good enough', and letting my insecurities get in the way of my happiness. No more doubts!!!

    Happy 2012 to ME - & to everyone else!!!

To get up everyday, excited to be doing something I love, and having this excitement spill outward to family, friends, community and beyond.

  856. Like many friends at AWAI, I have worked very hard my entire life.I am in my mid-50’s and find myself with no retirement. I made the mistake of "bargaining with life for a penny..". We adopted our 2 children when they were each 3 years old. Thankfully, we are now helping to raise our grandson.Perfection! I do not want my grandson to think that working 12 hours a day and coming up beat up and dog-tired is the way to live. I resolve to finish the accelerated course by the first quarter o f2012.

    Guest (daveshir2005)December 14, 2011 at 12:27 pm

  860. I purchased AWAI's copywriting program several years ago in an effort to fulfill my dream of leaving the corporate world for greater freedom. I have not made time to get past the first chapter because I did not decide that it should be a priority. Instead, I let everything and everyone else take time away from me and guess what? I had no time left for myself and for what I wanted to do. This year, I plan to finish the course and choose a writing niche and get to bootcamp next fall!

    Guest (Kathleen)December 14, 2011 at 1:51 pm

  862. I recently signed up for the class on Money Making Websites, so my goals for 2012 are related. I intend to launch two informational websites, create two e-books one for each web site. I also plan on selling both e-books for the Kindle on Amazon. I plan on creating my websites in Wordpress, so my web sites will each feature a blog, which I will write posts for on alternating days. Once these sites have launched and I have promoted them, I plan to turn my attention to writing for the fund raising market. The money I earn this year will go toward setting up a special needs trust for my adult son.

    Guest (Rosie Beers)December 14, 2011 at 3:45 pm

I told them stories about a raccoon having adventures each time they visited and the story never ended. Now they want those stories to tell their children and I want to get it published and promote to bring back happy children stories for the next generations. My oldest granddaughter is an artist and will do the drawings to go with the book.

Thanks TWL for confidence to jump in and get it rolling! BRING ON 2012 for Living The Writers Life with my shiney new web site! Plus if I don't start making an income my hubby is sending me off to pack bags at safeway! How's that for motivation...

  880. After a very recent lay-off from a 50-60 hour/week well-paying job, I am finally afforded the luxury of "time" to develop my long-delayed dream of a freelance business. My goal is to replace at least 2/3 of my previous income in 2012. The door of opportunity is wide-open and my incentive to succeed is, well, mission critical!

    Guest (Colleen K)December 15, 2011 at 8:57 am

  881. In 2012 I have written a money making website that earns enough that I was able to move out on my own, get my divorce and have 10% on my earnings from that site to go to WMMR's annual Preston and Steve Campout for Hunger

  886. I've been freelance writing for 5-ish years, and have been taking low-paying work - and lots of it. I'm trying to transition into direct response. My goal in 2012 is to transition out of the low-hanging fruit and into full-time direct response work, so that I am no longer miserable working on projects and can spend more time with my wife and family.

    Guest (Tom Meitner)December 15, 2011 at 10:21 am

    Guest (englishmakescents)December 15, 2011 at 11:11 am

  893. My biggest goal for 2012 is to complete my transition from a full-time webmaster to a full-time copywriter specializing in integrated online/traditional marketing strategies. My focus is on the travel and outdoor industries, for a truly portable career. My inspiration and training come from the AWAI group, and from studying the masters of copywriting. My 2011 goal of paid copywriting assignments by the end of the year has been reached, and now, 2012 is ahead, bright with promise. By the end of 2012, I will be a full-time copywriter, well on my way to the life I've envisioned.

    Steve HillDecember 15, 2011 at 12:24 pm

  894. Well, my goal is simple. Currently, I'm a firefighter with a family to support. A drastic career change (leaving a gov job and its benefits and retirement) without any kind of security is a scary thought. So, my goal is to get the nest egg, and the gumption, to take the leap required. Wish me luck!

    FSFORDDecember 15, 2011 at 12:28 pm

    I purchased "The lazy man's guide to Stock photography".
    (I began the studies yesterday.)
    My first attempt back in 2008 failed. Lost my spouse to cancer, devistated me. I am over 65, have always enjoyed photography, always playing with it!
    My goals for 2012: Make every moment worth while. Complete my studies, Sell great pictures, retire to Ecuador with my camera and little dog. Happily give back via volunteer work.
    Have a great day!

  909. As a federal government Senior Executive, I work exhausting, high-pressure, stressful 12-14 hour days dealing with complex Naval Warfare Systems - the most complex systems in the world - so my goal is to start a new career just as interesting, but only 20 hours a week, that would supplement retirement income sufficiently to enjoy quality time with my husband, 5 grandchildren, & 2 Westies, along with two extended trips a year to explore the many climates and regions of Central and South America.

  937. My goals? Focus more on dating. Just kidding! I plan to make my business grow by getting into outsourcing. I never tried it before but now, I'm fully determined to take the steps into making my business grow and what triggered me most is because of the great entrepreneurs that continually share what they have to starters like me. Marie Forleo is one great person that I look up to when it comes to business and her latest talk is about goal setting and the planning tools necessary for us to follow.

    Guest (Grace)January 3, 2012 at 4:03 am

  938. I'd been asked a very long time ago to help market a pair of fantasy novels but ran into a lack of knowledge as to how to do this and was further diverted by other projects. I would like this year to reclaim this project and see it take off through my application of skills gained through AWAI programs that cover writing for the web and autoresponders. I think utilizing techniques to create great web copy and spot various deficiencies that exist in what has already been done could make a life changing difference. Just to know I'd the guts to go back and do it right would change my life--not to mention the writer's! It would be a dream goal come true.

    Word PeddlerJanuary 3, 2012 at 3:29 pm

  948. My goal is to begin this Accelerated Program for Six Figure Copywriting today and spend one and a half hours a day completing the steps to a new, more lucrative career! I plan to use my newfound wealth infusing my academic/horsemanship program with the necessary capital to make it a successful endeavor. There are horses who are willing to help the people who most need help at this time and I would like to be a part of the creation of an effective program helping horses and humans!
