I had a conversation today with a prospect about doing lead gen work for him.
Right away I knew he was a bad fit because he started the call off by asking how much my services cost.
We weren’t even 2 minutes into the call when he posed this question. I let him know I’d tell him in just a minute but asked if I could learn a little about his agency first.
“I’m getting so frustrated with this demo video I’m working on for Advisors Grow,” I told Lacie today while in the car.
“Why don’t you just put together a pitch deck and start selling these?” she said matter of factly.
As soon as she said it I realized that’s exactly what I should do!
That idea also triggered several more ideas of things I could do now to start generating sales for Advisors Grow:
One of the main reasons I started this blog was to “show my work.” But I realize I am doing a horrible job at that.
I seem to post about everything else except WHAT I’M ACTUALLY WORKING ON!
So to kick my butt back into gear I decided to just open up my screen recorded and show you what I was working on today. It’s not the most exciting stuff but this is what it’s really like working as a freelance copywriter.

As a freelancer you’re in control of your work schedule. This can be good or bad depending on how well you manage your appetite for getting things done.
There’s always a temptation to just “do one more thing” before calling it a day. But if you’re like me, that one thing morphs into five things. And what should have taken 15 minutes has taken another hour.
One of my weaknesses is overcomplicating things.
If you struggle with this too then I think you’re going to like today’s post. It’s my new analog “super simple weekly goal setting process.”
Here’s how it works:
