Hello the community,

At fifty-nine years old, wading through the "script", after reading the first part of Unscripted (at least until chapter 27), you either commit suicide by realizing the shitty life you've lived so far (you're the living dead anyway), or you've hit your Ras-le-Bol event head on.

If I kill myself, I'll ask my wife to post the news on the Fastlane forum. Otherwise, you'll have to put up with a wrinkly for a few years!

Take care,
Jean-Louis

Welcome !

The "Ras-le-Bol" event, I like it (coming from a french guy) ! :)

It's never too late. The exqmple of Harland Sanders (founder of KFC) is quite famous: he reached real success quite late in his life (around his 60's). Late is still better than never.

Can you tell maybe a little bit more about your background / projects ?

Welcome (again?) Jean-Louis.

59 years wise. ;-).

You have the networks, experience, and wisdom. All you need is the why, and it sounds like you’ve found it.

Hey Djioul,

Nobody is perfect :) hihihi

Thank you for taking the time to read me!

I am a former industrial draftsman who reoriented his career towards CAD as a technical salesman and then as an applications engineer and finally as an engineering software asset manager before deciding to leave my job to try the adventure of entrepreneurship: before it is too late!

But most of all I love, I adore reading. Or rather, I love words and what you can do with them. I fell in ecstasy in front of the authors of the OULIPO, Raymond Queneau, Georges Perec or Italo Calvino (my favorite Oulipian authors).

"More words, always words, the same words" sang Dalida...

Yes, but words to sell ! Of course, neither Queneau nor Perec were copywriters, but I did gorge myself on sales letters. Those of Joe Vitale, Gary Halbert or Gary Bencivenga fascinated me.

I myself wrote a few sales letters for Christian Godefroy (French copywriter). As I said in my first post, it was a long time ago. I missed a unique opportunity to work with him and become a professional copywriter.

But it won't happen again. I'd rather stick my fountain pen in the top of my head than go back to a salaried job.

On next Monday, I start a three-month training course in copywriting. I'm not naive enough to believe that I'll become the next French Bencivenga. But I do intend to leave my mark in the small world of French copywriters...

Take care!
Jean-Louis

When I find myself in times of trouble, MJ comes to me
Speaking words of wisdom, let it be...
And in my hour of darkness He is standing right in front of me
Speaking words of wisdom, let it be...
:)

Dear Andy,

Thank you for your words...

I'm not sure my age makes me any wiser than MJ.

I've felt over a couple of times and it hasn't made me any wiser.

But I do intend to pull out all the stops to turn a very boring retirement into a fireworks display. Just don't let the firecracker blow up in my face! :D

Take care.
Jean-Louis
