Been getting client requests lately.
I don’t know why, exactly.
Maybe it’s the whole “people want what you can’t have” thing (in my case, I am not currently taking on any client work).
But I’m just not interested in clients right now.
Too little freedom, and too much drama.
In fact, the drama of working for copywriting clients is almost like being Jack Bauer in “24.” You’re trying to do your job (with a VERY tight deadline) and make things happen despite a plethora of people (some with good intentions, others with bad intentions, and some who are flat out trying to sabotage everything) working against you.
It’s not always that bad.
But it can get crazy sometimes.
And the more fingers in the pie, the worse it is.
That’s why I suggest being your OWN client.
Create and sell your products.
Keep all the money.
And deal with none of the drama.
No, you may not make as much up front as you would from some pimp daddy client… but there’s no law saying you can’t take a client on while doing your own stuff, is there?
So why not get started today?
Create a product.
Start building a list.
And shoot it an email every day.
It’s shocking how fast it can build from there.

For this adventure, and over the following weeks I'm going to scale up my Pay Per Click campaign from the 150 leads a day it's bringing now to 3 times that — 450 leads a day. This is a stepping stone toward the eventual goal of 1000!
