Few weeks back, the sump pump at my grandparents house broke.


They woke up one morning and found their basement flooded.


And, had to spend about $10k to redo their carpeting, repaint their walls, and move new furniture into their basement.


Why am I telling you this?


Because I want to, mf, that’s why.


Jokes aside:


I had to help them move their furniture around.


And it made me grateful that I have my own business.


Here’s the story:


This all happened on a Friday morning.


I got a call from my grandpa that he needed my help.


So what did I do?


I dropped everything and went over to help.


We worked from 10 am until about 12:30 pm moving furniture around.


And, this is an example of something I wouldn’t have been able to do if I had a J-O-B.


I would’ve been stuck at work, unable to help.


And that wouldn’t have been fair to my grandparents.


They came to every sports game I played when I grew up. And I had a different game almost every day because I played football, basketball, and baseball.


They came to a decent amount of shows when I was in a band that played 2-3 times every weekend.


They’ve always been available when I needed them, with no questions asked. There was a time when “high school me” needed Triple AAA and my grandpa came so I could get my car towed.


It was just one of those “epiphany moments” when I realized I made the right decision by quitting my cushy job 2.5 years ago to start my own thang.


Plus, it reminded me that there are some things more important than biz:


Family.


Anyway, none of my clients freaked out. None of them even knew I disappeared for 2.5 hours during the week.


And here’s why it matters to you:


When you hire someone to run your email marketing, you can enjoy the same level of freedom too.


Have a family emergency come up?


Don’t worry, we can still send emails and make money. (Heck, we can even write an email about the situation, like I did here.)


Wanna travel the world for a month straight?


Go ahead. I’ll keep your emails running like a printing press.


Just don’t feel like working?


Doesn't matter. Our ship is still headed towards the Brinks truck.


Anyway, I started this biz for the freedom I enjoy.


And besides sticking it to the “man,” freedom is the most popular reason for starting a biz.


So if you ain’t free with your own biz?


I can help.


All you need is a proven offer and an email list.



We’ll start printing money and printing freedom together. So you can enjoy the more important parts of life, like your family.

What to do if your copy is “too long”

One of mayhap the most common “critiques” you’ll get as a copywriter is that your clients think your copy is too long. I put “critiques” in quotations because it’s (usually) not so much a critique of

While I didn’t physically write this out at the golf course, I kinda did. Here’s what I mean: Yes, I am (probably) golfing now, depending on when you’re reading this email. My homie’s getting married
