Eight months ago, I embarked upon a lofty endeavor of writing an ebook on LinkedIn for “America’s Top Copywriter” Bob Bly.
No way did I know — how involved, intricate, highly technical, artsy and fun the assignment would evolve to. It was more than a simple ebook. It was videos, it was digging, it was meditation, handwritten drafts and a lot more.
Now today, I can call myself the proud writer of the totally lovely, highly helpful, intelligent, conversational digital book about LinkedIn., which gives an entirely unique perspective in my opinion (IMHO).
The excitement was palpable. Why? Because I had never seen anything like this before. I turned pages virtually online — and discovered, uncovered new ideas, opportunity and potential for our all-too-familiar social place LinkedIn.
All I can say is: It was exciting to me! Oh, I still had days of growing pains that hurt a lot, because the task at hand was so challenging. We brought details of a method never presented in such an informal, conversational — and almost simple language — that was sooooo technical. Served up by my co-author the man-behind-the-scene, expert, revealing his ‘secret sauce” of how to make LinkedIn sing and work better for the user than most ever dreamed of before. A unique and special idea — a highly attractive method of making LinkedIn spin, sing and work wonders.
Including lots of tools, instructions, and helpful software programs combined in a proprietary way — shortcuts, simplications, spreadsheets, macros that we ALL would do well to learn and use in an every day manner with whatever we are doing in our businesses, on our computers and in our offices as we navigate the web, databases, files and all.
And that’s what I got to write about in the last 4 or 5 months of 2014. Yes, it took that long! Oh, yes, granted I was doing a few other things . . . . . I still had to keep my Amazon Store alive and well . . . . and Christmas was rapidly approaching. But I was working on the “LinkedIn Marketing Magic” ebook every day, and late into many nights, and up early mornings.
And I can say, It was worth it. I’m proud of what I did. And If You Are Interested Here Is A Link to the Landing Page — that Bob Bly wrote with excerpts sprinkled in from the ebook I wrote: “LinkedIn Marketing Magic.”

Do you feel too busy? Like your head is spinning. And you don’t know where to begin or end things. Too many desires. Wants? Needs? Just too much. A few solutions are available. And one of those solutions could be a virtual assistant or VA.
Timothy Ferris wrote a book called “The Four-Hour Workweek.” And the only way one can work four hours a week and earn a full-time income is to do a little outsourcing. Some experts say outsource everything except those things that only you can do.
Look around – you can find books, YouTubes, and helpful tips on finding, hiring, training and working with VAs. Talk and listen to experts who’ve figured out ways to get a lot more done, in less time, less stress, with more time to focus on their unique skills and talents by using VAs to help with the things they don’t want or need to do.
Now this VA won’t be washing your dishes, or buying your groceries; but they may help you with your bookkeeping, and managing accounts and online business… as you build trust together.
Talk to experts about how to screen and hire, but here are a couple of links that have come to me highly recommended to get you closer to hiring your first Virtual Assistant:

Recently I announced on Facebook in my Copywriting group that I was starting a Bob Bly Baltimore event mastermind group. In this group we go through the sessions (modules) of the “Getting Clients” event from July 2014 in Baltimore.
Four people came forward within two or three weeks who were interested, and the group began.
Bob is a great teacher, and he shares the details of how he launched and started his six figure copywriting business. He tells all – his ambitions, successes and failures.
He has written 80+ books now. My favorites are “Secrets of a Freelance Writer: How to Earn $100,000 a Year,” and “The Copywriter’s Handbook.” One of the key events that gave Bob such success was the testimonial he received from copywriter legend David Ogilvy.
And to hear that story, you will need to buy Bob’s program and listen to him tell it himself in the “Getting Clients” event.

Who are you? I know this blogs seems like it is about me. But who are you?
Sometimes I don’t know what to say. I don’t know what you want to know.
I know a lot about health. I know how to sell things on Amazon. I’m not too good at WordPress. But that doesn’t matter. I don’t like to get too personal because I don’t know who you are.
Sure I have analytics, Google analytics. I see a few will spend 10 minutes or more reading my blogs. That’s nice. But then there are so many more… who click out as soon as they arrive here.
A Mom once told her son (or suggested to her son) ….. to write a book. And he did.
Interesting fact: I worked with and knew Christopher Paolini’s (Eragon) Mom and Dad. And I was there when Christopher was 3 or 4 or 5, and his sister was a baby. This was in Montana.
Writing is my passion — and copywriting. Can I write something for you?
Pictures. Videos. Webinars. All things that help us get our writing and communique out to you and the world better. Words are key.
Copywriter of the Year at AWAI, Nick Usborn explains this eloquently. And he called himself a web copywriter for many years — so he knows about videos, webinars and all of that. But he teaches his students it is the words that really make the difference.
Still I do not REALLY know who you are. Focus is key to success in writing, online marketing, copywriting. A niche.
My niches are health and email funnel machine marketing.
