How I went from misspelling my own name to becoming a copywriter

How I went from misspelling my own name to becoming a copywriter

So, this month I’ve been talking about the power of stories. I’ve been trying to encourage you to share your story - to be personable, open and transparent.

I have a confession...

Even though I’ve been encouraging you to do these things, I’ve neglected to do them myself.

Why?

Because it’s scary putting yourself out there. But if I’m trying to encourage you to do it, then surely I should show some courage myself, right?

Right.

How To Craft Stories That Sell Your Service - Part 1

So how do you do it?
