There was only ONE way out:
Land a copywriting RETAINER that was large enough and long-term enough for me to drop out, pay rent, and live off the income.
...and land it FAST.
But to land a retainer, I needed something RELIABLE.
After all, the future of my entire life was at stake here!
So I couldn’t roll the dice on the hit-and-hope ‘usual suspect’ client-getting strategies.
You know, things like:
👉 Applications on job boards that get buried in the pile...
👉 Templated cold email blasts to random businesses who get the same pitch every day...
👉 Spammy or fake relationship-building DMs (like “how’s business going”) that get ignored and spurned...
What’s more -
I simply didn’t have TIME to set it up so that high-paying clients (who could afford to have me on retainer) came to me…
...by doing things like list building and ‘authority content’ posts.
I was at a loss.
