Over the years, I have trained many professional copywriters, but the actual writing is only part of what I teach. In order for a student to be successful as a writer (or any entrepreneurial venture), they need to know how to launch, run and grow their business.
This leads to me getting asked various forms of this question numerous times each week:
“Should I start my business now, or wait until things are a little better?”
Here's the short answer – Do it now!
In this week's episode, I'll back that answer up with 5 great reasons to get started A.S.A.P. – Whether you're talking about launching a business, publishing a book, starting a podcast…whatever it is, NOW is the time.
DISCLAIMER: Before you jump in, let me tell you what has this on my mind in the first place. I've been attending Jeff Walker's latest masterclass. These are free sessions and YES, I do attend! I send notifications to my tribe about them because they're amazingly beneficial, free content. In fact, giving away content that is *actually beneficial* is one of the key principles of Jeff's program. It has been the main roadmap for my own business since I first bought it in 2005.
The reasons I list in this podcast are things that I believe are 100% accurate. They DO NOT require you to purchase anything – I would never release an “infomercial” for my product or someone else's unless I flat out stated that up front.
IF you are interested in following this roadmap that has generated over a BILLION dollars in revenue, then I encourage you to use my affiliate link. Yes, I get a small commission (at no extra cost to you), BUT more importantly, I will be working through the program with you if you purchase with this link.
Each year, I pay the small maintenance fee to get the latest version of PLF. I have done this since 2005. I don't do it because Jeff and I are buddies (he's doing just fine financially and doesn't need donations from friends). I buy it because I use it to make money – Every single year!
So this year, I'm inviting any members of my tribe (if you're reading this, that's you) to go through the program with me. After doing this every year for 16 years now, I'm more than qualified to help guide you across the finish line.
Okay…now that I've fulfilled my Full Transparency Guarantee, let's get on with the show!

This is the latest and greatest version of PLF – The roadmap that I use in my own business. **Remember, purchasing with this link does not increase the price, but it does allow you to go through the program with me and other members of my tribe.
