Copywriting is my greatest weakness.
For a long time, it has held me back.
I was just talking to my publisher the other day about the Networking Empire Salesletter.
This is the first letter I've ever written 100% on my own.
In the past, I've reverse engineered a competitor or worked from a similar template and had help from my copy mentors.
When we first started working together, I couldn't write a headline, let alone create an entire sales letter all on my own.
Is it an obstacle of an opportunity?
There are going to be areas in your business where you are weak.
Some things you just have to learn and it becomes critical.
For years copywriting was my Achilles heel, and I have paid copywriters as much as ten thousand dollars for a sales letter that flopped.
I had to learn the hard way.
Now people pay me thousands of dollars and more to write sales letters for them.
I've written copy for some of the biggest products on Clickbank, and I write my own letters now.
When you find an area of weakness you can give up, or you can become strong.
Learning something hard makes you tougher
It makes you believe in yourself.
Get Paid to Learn
Most skills that you have to learn can make you money along the way.
I got paid to learn SEO (search engine optimization) by taking on local clients and using their fees to pay for my own courses and software.
I started taking ANY copywriting job I could get my hands on to fund my copy training.
It's a much better motivator when you are getting paid to learn.
Even if the project is paying less than an area where you are strong, the money feels so much sweeter.
You really earn it because you are getting paid to do something you would have done for free.
Some people will pay you to write articles, write emails, make videos, set up their Skype and even to install their blog.
All of these tasks can earn you money while you learn.
Find the Right System

With anything, you want to learn, start by choosing the right teacher and system.
If you need advice choosing a program, feel free to email me for some guidance.
Once you have the right path, you simply need to walk it.
To learn anything great takes time and effort.
I'm still not the greatest copywriter in the world, but I will continue to work hard and improve my skillset until I become a 10-20k per letter writer.
