    You copywriters are being replaced by AI..

    That's why I'm starting to invest in real estate :) On a serious note... As a full-time copywriter... I believe AI should be able to do a lot in the next 10 years. For writing slogans...it should be a breeze for AI. For writing complex sales letters ---> upsells ---> bump offers...that will...

    OFF-TOPIC Which Movies/Series/TV Shows Are You Watching?

    Since we just had our 3rd child, my shift at night is 3am - 9am with the newborn. (no, she doesn't sleep well). So, there's a lot of binge-watching while staying up with her. In the past month, binged: - The Wire (very good show) - Deadwood (well done, but a bit boring) - Six Feet Under (well...

    GOLD! The MAIN difference between someone who makes 100k /year and someone who makes 1m?

    This is what we're at the beginning stages of at the moment. Funneling all the money into investments that grow in a real estate business. My current business is in a small niche, where even trying to grow an 'agency' would require going after clients outside the niche (as it's so small). I...

    Napoleon Hill likely never studied any millionaires, but this man actually did and published research.

    Funny no one is talking about the 7 traits as those are most important :) 1) Independent vision 2) Active mind 3) Competence and confidence 4) The drive to action 5) Egotistic passion 6) Love of ability in others 7)Virtue It's interesting because it seems to contradict themselves... ...you...

    My perspective on Marketing

    Love your idea about becoming "famous" in your city. My wife and I are opening a local business in a few months, and will definitely be using this idea. I don't agree that this type of content marketing is the only way to go. You didn't say that, but there was a mood that paid advertising isn't...

    NOTABLE! 6-Figures In 12 Months Copywriting. Quit Job. Here's How I Did It:

    I understand why you feel that way. I'd challenge you to approach it in a different way. "What are my competitors NOT doing, that I do and/or do better?" Especially if it's something that the client craves for...you're not 'stealing', you're actually helping. Neflix didn't "steal" Blockbuster...

    HOT TOPIC Dealing with porn and other addictions

    When kicking a habit, I find there are really two things to do: 1) Keep busy 2) Think of overcoming it will only take 30 days not your lifetime First --- keep busy --- We slip into destructive habits when we're idle i.e. we don't have something productive to do. Eating bad, not exercising...

    HOT TOPIC Crushing B2B Sales with LinkedIn

    Ugh...this is literally the Linkedin profile of the CMO of a freakin' billion-dollar hotel. "[NAME -3rd person] is an award-winning marketing executive distinguished as a strategist, a deliverer of results and a developer of talent. Recognized as a leader with strong consumer intuition...

    HOT TOPIC Crushing B2B Sales with LinkedIn

    Love the hustle @EarlOfChina :). I used to do this hard core a few years ago when I was in a different niche. My process was similar but a bit simpler. 1) I'd send a connection request (I'd make it more relevant to the industry than "how is the weather?" More like "Hey, we both know X...

    NOTABLE! AMA: Rehabbing & Flipping - Ask Me Anything

    Makes a lot of sense, Jason thanks! Sounds like finding a good HML is a priority. I have a good income and credit, so going the 'small bank' route is also a path for me. And you recommend it in the book. However, it sounds like to close fast on a property, the only options are 1) My own cash...

    EXECUTION Advice Needed For My Cold Email

    Great you're getting into cold email. It can work like gangbusters. With doctors/dentists, it could be a lot harder, to be honest as they're on the go all the time. But still test, test, test. My advice: - It's great you have some proof of your credentials. PLUS - Delete the third...

    HOT TOPIC Tony Robbins sells out; reveals his Paradox of Practice, cringeworthy.

    I get everyone's frustration with Tony here...but he's doing what any salesman does... He gives the customer what they want. MJ's book is better and will make you richer...however... (and this isn't a knock on MJ)... Tony's way in his books is much, much easier. Meditate. Passively invest...

    NOTABLE! AMA: Rehabbing & Flipping - Ask Me Anything

    Hey Jason, Thanks for bubbling this thread back to the top. My wife and I are starting our real estate business after our third kid is born next month (so starting in August-ish). So, currently I'm hoarding cash from my writing business and that's going well. Good credit to boot. We're...

    RANT My brother tried to kill me and my family did nothing about it.

    Sorry to hear about all this. It sounds scary. And it sounds like your family doesn't care & I'm betting have abused you themselves in the past. I'm going to guess you're younger than your brother, and with friends in college, you're around 18-22. ...thinking about if I was in that situation...

    NOTABLE! Eric from Erics Cheesecakes

    I remember reading this post two years ago and saw it pop up again. Eric, I hold a soft spot for you as cheesecake is literally the best food in existence. Unfortunately, two years later it looks like you're still running in place! After skimming the last 24 months, it seems your biggest...

    What Are The Reasons People Buy Something?

    The only reason we buy anything is twofold: 1) We believe what we buy will make our life better 2) We believe what we buy will make us feel better Those aren't logical reasons as much as emotional. That's why whenever you sell something, it needs to start with hooking their emotion and backing...

    HOW TO DOUBLE YOUR COMMISSIONS WITHOUT SIGNING ANOTHER CLIENT AND 50% LESS WORK: The freelancer treadmill... Sign a client, do work, get paid, collect a commission (if you played your cards right), hit the pavement again searching for another client. If you did a decent enough job, you may...

    GOLD! Web 3.0 (Ethereum) is happening, and most people have no idea what it even is.

    True that. I was watching it at $0.70, was sitting in Bitcoin waiting to exchange for IOTA, but BTC kept climbing and I heard rumblings about news coming for IOTA in January or late Dec, so I sat on my hands. Jumped 450% early Dec..freaking A!.. IOTA's gonna be bigly based on my many notes of...

    Found This Story: My brother killed himself because of BTC

    I've been following IOTA for a few months now. At some point, it traded for like $0.70 2-3 weeks ago. I sat on my hands and just left my money in BTC...(which was fine obviously) Then, yesterday, I didn't see, but IOTA jumped. Then, it jumped even more today. It's up to $3.30 (as of this...
