The Game Changer: How to Get Off the "Just One More Course" Merry-Go-Round and Start Getting Paying Copywriting Clients NOW...
Sharon couldn't stop buying copywriting training courses. Like many of us, she dumped wads of cash into learning the next "big thing". But what she WASN'T doing was getting clients. And she was stuck in an endless (and outright desperate) loop of "just one more course" while moving farther and farther away from her goals... Plus (as if that wasn't bad enough) she was dealing with a bad case of Imposter Syndrome. Could she ACTUALLY do this? Would people really pay her to write for them? What she needed was a blueprint to break out of this loop and start getting clients. So we started working together. And as she so eloquently put it--"IT WAS A GAME CHANGER!" Listen now to hear her story inside...
