And many times opportunities in the market place exist only for a short window – to take advantage of those you must be able to write copy quickly.

Today we will share five copy hacks you can use to boost your speed up to 5000 words per day.

Spiritual Foundations

Do not wear yourself out to get rich;

do not trust your own cleverness.

Cast but a glance at riches, and they are gone,

for they will surely sprout wings

and fly off to the sky like an eagle.

Proverbs 23:4-5

Tip Of The Week

Scan old photos, sharpen, enhance, colorize, tag, share, and more with Photomyne.com

Most of us who are old enough to remember the Regan administration have old photos that we've yet to digitize. We say we'll get to it…but we don't. I'm certainly guilty of that, but it's mainly because I haven't liked my choices. Either do it myself…one photo at a time on a flatbed scanner, OR trust a stranger to do it for me.

Photomyne.com has made this process a lot faster and easier. It's definitely worth a look for those of us who still have photo albums full of floral wall paper, huge sideburns and plaid bell-bottoms.
