Please give us an example of how your life has changed since becoming a copywriter.

I feed myself from my dream. Also, I help others retain and increase their financial independence through my copy and the information it sells. I travel a lot. I’ve met some extremely intelligent, unique people. I’ve also met some arrogant rats, who can teach you just as well as the moral geniuses.

Never stop reading. Play an instrument. Don’t watch TV. Learn to do with less sleep.
