A Sneak Peek at the Episode
[1:30] If you are new to following Filthy Rich Writer, learning about the world of copywriting, or deciding if you should pursue copywriting, this is the episode for you! Nicki and Kate will help talk through one of the biggest questions that future students ask: “Is copywriting right for me?”
[3:00] Copywriting doesn’t have to be the perfect career. But you need to ask yourself if you are committed to doing the work and taking action to learn the skills necessary to find success as copywriter.
[5:00] If you commit yourself to learning the skills to become a copywriter, then you have a new set of skills even if you don’t pursue copywriting as a career. You can apply your copywriting skills to a current job. Or decide to pursue copywriting full time. Or part time. Or pick it up as a side hustle when you need it.
[8:50] To find success, you need to be willing to be coached and to learn. You need to learn and practice and refine the principles before you can build a copywriting portfolio and find clients.
[11:00] Another integral part of becoming a copywriter is the willingness to take action. This will often force you to step outside of your comfort zone and isn’t always the fun part, but it is necessary!
[15:00] If you decide to pursue copywriting, find your why! If you can reflect on why you are doing it, your reason for doing something can help push you through the hard days.
