    Please ramble away, you seem to know a lot. I really appreciate how genuine you are.

    I'm kind of a creative person, but my biggest fears is not making money. I'm not looking for a super artsy job, but I want to stretch my mind a bit, and I love writing and learning how people think. I'm iffy about marketing and advertising, but you are convincing me.

  2. J Moore says:

    Great video! I have a question for you, how would a newbie, (me) format a portfolio?

  3. Unobtainius says:

    I love your personality and the way you convey information. You seem like you drink ALOT of coffee haha Thanks for the awesome content and keep it up! DO MORE VIDEOS!

  4. Jeff A says:

    I love your content, it's been an absolute godsend! How do you recommend finding clients after your portfolio is built and you've reached out/worked with people in your social circle? Cold emailing within your niche on LinkedIn?

    You uploaded this in perfect timing! (I watched it twice) I'm just getting into copywriting.

    I LOVE words but I don't know if I can handle all the heartbreaks after split-testing things since I got the heart of a poet.

    But damn, it's so lucrative and interesting with psychology and what makes people tick. I can be creative in my free time. I only need to know where to look for businesses and practice my pitching skills. I'm trying to find work on Upwork and Freelancer as a start, what's your opinion on that? 🙂

    Designing and writing landing pages is something I like doing, so I definitely think I should specialize in that and home pages. Just gotta write a few theoretical pieces and build up my portfolio.

    Thanks a ton! This video seriously helped.

    Also, did you record this during Christmas? 😀
