Centerton, Arkansas

Starting my online copywriting business in Duluth Minnesota. I have already started the process. I have a website that I am working on however it is not launch yet. I am almost finished checking with all the states to see if the name I want to use is available. Next I will be checking to see what office space is available in Duluth and what is the cost. I want to do this because people tend to think you are more legitimate if you have an actual business address. I hope to get my company up and running by the end of next year.

Duluth, Minnesota

I lost my job a week and a half ago and decided I need to go full time as a copywriter. So, my goal for 2010 is to become a six-figure talented copywriter by the end of the year. It's a matter of survival! LOL! This is what I want to do!!!

Fort Worth, TX

While I am a successful copywriter in one niche (the auto industry), in 2010 I want to expand my copywriting into new directions. In 2010 as I skyrocket my freelancing into different areas I am going to relish helping my clients prosper in these difficult financial times. I believe copy that sells is a client’s best avenue to regaining lost revenue while establishing their financial bedrock in today’s economy.

To be one of Nick Usborne's Website Entrepreneur Successes in 2010 … to complete the Accelerated Six-figure Copywriting Program, finally. I see I'm not the only one dragging my feet for whatever reason … let's just get it done. And I feel empathy for all those who have lost their jobs. In the 80's it happened to me twice. All the hospital depts. that made money (radiology, respiratory therapy, surgical nurses,were laid off plus the hospital CEO---the buyers bought the hospital from the doctors, changed the name, turned around and leased it back … then sent us all a pink slip w/a letter saying they no longer had to honor our pensions--cute trick, eh? But we're like ants, we'll find a way. Best to all and thanks AWAI. Your support is priceless. Patricia PS Somehow … I'm getting to Bootcamp this coming November.

San Antonio, TX

For me, it's all about balance. In this order: 1. Spiritual – these remain personal, but my spiritual goals provide my basic foundation, my serenity no matter what happens and an attitude of gratefulness for everything I have. No need to worry about what I don't have. 2. Health – always room for improvement as I grow older! Now that I write copy in the health field, I'm learning all sorts of things to apply to myself! I plan to eat more naturally and swim more. 3. Business – I lost my corporate job, which I thought meant 'security' in January 2009. I turned to AWAI and dusted off my six figure copywriting program. Thanks to AWAI, I've begun to build a copywriting business and my goal for 2010 is to replace my previous corporate income or surpass it in the coming year.(and again, thanks to AWAI – resources and bootcamp – I'm on my way!) 4.

Kanata, Ontario

Commit to finally taking Matt Furey's 'leap off a cliff' and simply begin writing on the web. All the education in the world is not much value without action. It has been frightening just taking this 'simple leap', even with consistent encouragement from Rebecca Matter and Denise Ford. There have been too many 'good', 'old-school' reasons not to leap before. But, no longer … Tonight I enrolled as an auto-responder apprentice in Jay White's program (to begin writing for profit). I did it to supplement my income, while I work daily to build and publish my website. Let this statement be written record of my commitment to become a full-time web copywriter. It will take time! But cannot love of work and continual learning be a joy in life's journey? The recent series of teleconferences I 'attended' with Rebecca, Denise, Nick, and Katie, finally tipped the scales in favor of taking action. If they ever wonder if real people are greatly affected by their encouragement, expertise, and kind

Koeln, Germany

My goal is to write a television travel show, based upon a theme I have been researching for over a year. My plan is to first write a travel book based on this theme, illustrating it with my own photographs. I will attempt to find a publisher, but may also consider self publishing. Then I will use my niche theme, and break it down by locations into separate travel articles, with the intention to earn income along the journey to my ultimate goal. At that point I will begin writing 30 minute television scripts, including a short history of the location, what makes it unique, and some practical travel information targeted at the niche audience. Once I have 15 scripts prepared, I will design a stunning presentation book to use in pitches for my show. I plan to produce and direct the show, as I have many years of experience as a script supervisor.

For many of us, 2009 was a rough year, but it was a year I was determined to become a copywriter and nothing was going to stop me.

I have been an AWAI member since 2003. I've watched many people become successful. At the same time, I've found every reason, I could, to not get involved.

It is my ultimate goal to establish a money making website advertising my copywriting capabilities. I hope to make $1000 to $15,000 minimum and the sky's the limit for the maximum aspect.

To achieve this goal, I will: - Complete my recently purchased AWAI's Accelerated Program for Six-Figure Copywriting, which is amazing. - Network with my internet marketing friends and contacts, one who've I've already done some sales letter & autoresponder writing for. - Get a simple website up - Send out 50 direct mail sales letters monthly to local small & mid-sized businesses (Bob Bly's advice), and follow-up with phone calls. Longer-term, the results of this activity will help build the foundation, samples & experience to 'go after' some of the larger projects with the bigger direct mail publishers. All my best to everyone in 2010, and thank you AWAI, for all

My personal goal is to get my family off ALL financial support programs with the various levels of the government by the end of 2010. Currently with only part-time employment and 6 children (one with special needs), you can imagine what handouts we 'qualify' for. Don't get me wrong, social programs have their place and they are serving their purpose for our family currently, but the wastefulness and inefficiency with which they execute, and the manner in which they are structured to welcome you in with little incentive to regain self-sufficiency is enough to make my wife and I sick to our stomachs. I have no desire to participate in these 'handouts' any longer than absolutely necessary. I love crafting words into sentences that engage and inspire others to improved personal growth and greater enjoyment of their human experience. So writing copy (likely B2B) is my vehicle of choice from which to evacuate 'handout' city in 2010!

Before setting goals I always reflect on the advice given to Jim Rohn by his first mentor: 'Set a goal for what they will make of you'. By the end of 2010 I will be a successful (very competent and fairly compensated) professional freelance copywriter. I will stop kidding myself about being a copywriter, tackle my fears and reservations one by one and do the work. By January 1st I have a daily, weekly, and monthy schedule written out and I will start following it before the New Year. The schedule will include writing, studying , listening to copywriting seminars, and regular marketing of my services. I will set dates for each of the following: Find a mentor and a peer group. Finish the 3 AWAI programs I have started. Complete my personal cover letter. Detailed list of companies I want to work for and contact them. Earn at least $50,000 from my copywriting services.

My vision and goal for 2010 is to help small to medium sized business owners undertand there is an alternate way to market their wares other than brand advertising - the written word. Creating a trap door for business owners to escape throwing their money away on 'throw against the wall and see what sticks' advertising I know will seem like a 'get-out-of-jail FREE' card for some, and the 'second coming of christ' for many others. Utilizing the resources I already have from AWAI and learning the ways of the force will indeed have me following in the footsteps of the Jedi of all mentors...Dan Kennedy and Bill Glazer. Roll on 2010...

What is my goal in 2010? This past June I almost died from Level Three staph infection while recovering from hip replacement surgery. I promised the Higher Power that I would show my gratitude by serving in two humanitarian efforts. The process is very straight forward thinking. We show our love and gratitude to God by how we serve people. One project is a web site called Operation Just One Can. It is dedicated to resupplying American food banks via grass roots efforts. The other project is Labor of Love Afghanistan. This again is a grass roots program to motivate Americans to ship Just ONE Blanket to Col Abe Conn of the Florida National Guard who might be shipped back to Kabul Afghanistan in spring 2010.We ran this in 2006 and 3,000 little orphans were blessed. This time the number is 5,000 kids needing assistance. As I type this essay it is December 13th at 6:45 am MST.I turned 53 years old this day. What will I do on my birthday? Absolutely I will thank God for sparing my Life.

Payson, Arizona

My goal I am setting to reach in 2010 is to be the successful writer that is inside me and I pray to do it cancer free, up and out of bed, getting back out in the world like I always had been before I gave up from fear, self doubt and my own pity party. There is so much to give in writing. People frantically search daily for a drip of hopeful or helpful, fun or exciting and incredible, life inspiring information to accomplish or live their dreams. These same people, all different but with the one thing in common..they hold the their own key..and mine. We all need guidance or to feel we have a hand to hold, at times. Possibly, we just need to be reminded of a better time and feel the rush of excitement we once felt abandon of guilt or fear. Words.. so simple, can be the words that motivates us to bounce back to life. To get my words written, published and help bring some smiles, relief in a crazy world or maybe a fantasy brought alive, will be my grand goal finally achieved.

Ithaca, NY

My first goal is to break in to the PAID world of copywriting! My second goal is to earn over $50,000 in 2010.

I have so many projects in mind . . .

Concord, CA

My goal for 2010 is to start a B-2-B business that will allow me to work at home, at my pace, and give me enough freedom to work when I am able. I have a horrendous headache problem which is very difficult to deal with at my current job. My goal is to get started on the copywriting path, so that I can make a living DESPITE my medical condition,and make it grow so that I no longer have to worry about medical bills … or any other bills for that matter! The B2B niche sounds perfect for me, and I am VERY excited about the prospect of being able to work in a writing environment that will allow me to be creative, and yet, not be as stressful and unrewarding as is my current position. I look to 2010 to be the year of my liberation, and the first year of my NEW Life!

Along with a hundred other goals I’ve set and not met. But a couple of things happened this year that made me realize that anything is possible. First of all, I quit a job that I’d been in for 18 years – the last 5 or 6 of which were not much fun – and the world didn’t end. AND I found a new job that I really like, and even though the pay is not what I’m used to, I’m much happier now. I purchased the AWAI Copywriting program over a year ago, and started it, but didn’t finish. Now with this new job, I have a little free time during the day to work on it, so I have made the commitme

Tucson, Az

I am still going through the material in the 'Accelerated Program for Six-Figure Copywriting' but reading the AWAI e-mails and the Golden Thread I am seeing that THE Workshop is the 'occasion' to attend, to help one leap high and far and really an trully move into the six figure earnings bracket, so my Goal for 2010 is to be at the November Workshop.

Bonita Springs, Florida

My primary goal the year 2010 is to complete the AWAI Copywriting Course and have 6 top rate clients which allows me to duplicate my salary, quit my day job and work full-time from home as a copywriter.

Get out of the maddening rut of living paycheck to paycheck and become the SEO copywriter I know I can be. My family deserves nothing less.

Pompano Beach, FL

My ultimate goal (in the next 3 years) is financial independence, meaning having enough cash flow from my writing business to support the family plus some of the 'little extras': vacation, being able to make a significant contribution to my favorite charities, and so on. My immediate means for doing this in 2010 are: to get my AWAI resume business--which is in its beginning stage--up and running via personal marketing, seminars, and website and blog. Since I know little about internet use, this is already a huge learning curve for me. I've signed up for the Las Vegas March convention, but have set a $ goal I must meet from my resume business before I can afford to go. Workin' and prayin' here! Next in 2010 I want to develop an information product (at least 1; preferably 1 per quarter after testing) for more passive income and look into affiliates and AdWords. Finally, I want to finish my Accelerated Copywriting and develop B2B leads locally, contacting and designing 5 business campaigns to pitch.

The goal I am reaching for in 2010 is actually two that go hand-in-hand: to live life traveling the country in an RV and to be debt-free. Wanting to travel and see many parts of the world has always been a dream of mine, and one I keep putting off. This year, I made the decision to do it - no matter what. So, I am begun the process of becoming debt-free while saving funds for the purchase of an RV. It is my hope/wish/desire to have it accomplished by April 2010.

My goal is to TRIPLE the number of clients my company had this year. We are a very new company, so I believe this number is possible. It will take a lot of communication with potential clients. Because both the core of my business and the marketing of my business are HEAVILY dependent on my copywriting skills, I have my work cut out for me! I believe I can achieve it! While not all businesses have copywriting at their core as mine does, it has become quite clear to me that almost any REALLY successful business has a great copywriter in there, communicating with their clients.

Lompoc, CA

One of my goals for 2010 is to continue working on a goal that I set aside in 2009 when, between February 7th and October 16th, I lost almost 78 pounds--peeling off the weight day by day, week by week, month by month--until I achieved my desired goal weight. In 2010, beside maintaining my 2009 goal weight, I want to finish AWAI's Acceleratged Program for Six-Figure Copywriting. Before I took my little detour and veered off course, I was reading, studying and eagerly working through the writing exercises. I completed the course through Part II, Section 10. I am enthusiastically looking forward to starting Part III, Section 11 and finishing the course. The information is excellent and energizes me allowing me to pursue my passion for writing--even writing about this goal, energizes me. In 2010, I want to work day by day, week by week, month by month pursuing my writing passion and moving closer to being a six-figure copywriter--making 2010 a very good year.

In the meantime, I am going to work on building my portfolio and supplementing my current income with at least two catalog copywriting jobs. By 2012, I intend to make the switch from full time National Account Manager to full time freelance copywriter! Since the economic downturn, my company has had to cut back in Marketing (they let our only Marketing person go last June). Since then, I have stepped up to the plate and created three direct mail and e-mail pieces that have had very favorable response rates. I had a ball creating those pieces in the evenings and on weekends, and have realized this is definitely something I want to do for a living! Before I stumbled upon AWAI, I never realized people could actually make a living writing copy, let alone a six figure income. Thank you AWAI...I know I'm on my way!!”

I'm studying the Accelerated Copywriting Program with the first of my goals being very specific. I want to achieve Financial Peace of Mind in 2010. In the last two years we have watched all around our country hundreds of thousands of people who have lost their jobs, homes, and dreams of a future not wrought with dispair. My past has been one of dispair, financial and personal, and this is my year to change all of that. The first goal then has to be to gain the knowledge and ability to become a great copywriter! The 'I want' list of goals will come later and certainly Financial Security will provide the income necessary to fullfill those goals, but the first has to be to work hard to achieve the means of reaching all of the other goals. After 12 years of searching, spending money I really couldn't afford to spend, and facing one disappointment”

And I'm exhausted from trying to keep up with all the service changes and running after whatever mode of transportation will dispatch me to my destination in the timeliest fashion. I never thought I could or would want to, but I now realize it's a necessity. So, although I won't be the youngest driver and maybe not even the most adroit, I will be a driver by the end of 2010.”
