A little over a decade ago, I was $200,000 in debt, no income, my company had just collapsed on me, we were behind on all of our bills, and the phone rang almost non-stop throughout the day with ‘friendly’ collection agencies. Worse than that, deep inside, I felt ashamed and like miserable, worthless failure. It was a very ugly time. In the middle to that crisis, I got a letter from Paul Hollingshead telling me about this crazy deal called ‘copywriting’. I read, reread, analyzed and prayed about the opportunity that letter presented to me.
Finally, my good wife suggested that I just dive in and give it a try. So I did. We borrowed $50 from my brother to get the first installment and I was off and running. Today, I make a very nice six-figure income. We are out of debt – no more calls from our ‘friends’. We take at least two high-adventure family vacations a year, with lots of mini ‘field trips’ in between. I work from home and spend lots of time with my wife and nine children. And, I feel the courage and pride of being able to provide for my family. How is this wonderful life possible? The answer is simple: The insights, support, and resources I got from AWAI have made my dreams a living, breathing reality in my life. I believe if you put these same tools to use, the same thing can happen to you.
