I recently attended AWAI’s 2017 FastTrack to Copywriting Success Bootcamp and Job Fair. This was my fourth Bootcamp in as many years.
And, honestly, this one cost me more than those I’ve attended in the past!
Okay, true confession time. There were some good reasons it cost more this time around. And, why it will in the future as well. Simply put…
I took my wife Mary!
She’s already told me I’m never going again… without her by my side.
So, I had to fork over the bucks for two plane tickets, the whole hotel room fee… and food for both of us. Whew! But, it was worth every penny.
And besides, my business has grown because of these events and it paid the expenses.
She needed a vacation from her seamstress work and from the grandkids. It’s been a long time since we took a real vacation that didn’t involve staying with family.
Of course, we actually did spend time with family… my copywriting kinfolk!
While she enjoyed sunning at the pool, walking on the beach… and spending some money in the myriad shops in Delray Beach, she did come to some of the events. She didn’t have to… she just wanted to be a part of what I do.
And she did get to know the people I’ve come to love and admire.
To say she was impressed would be an understatement. Everyone there treated her like she was royalty. The events she attended helped her understand what I do.
(Even though I’ll never understand seamstress stuff.)
So, in this installment of the Reality Blog, you’ll get more than just my opinions and takeaways from this very special live event.
She wanted me to share her thoughts with you as well.
Not as an outsider looking in. But, as someone who found out what all this Copywriting Bootcamp fervor was all about, even though not a copywriter herself.
If you have a spouse or significant other who’s not involved in your business, who doesn’t understand what the hubbub is all about, maybe this will help.
