Can you relate to this?
Today has been one of those days where I’ve looked back and thought to myself…
What the hell did I do??
I’ve been “busy”.
I had a couple of call bookings.
I signed a few new students.
I ran a coaching call in the Flaming Camel… and gave lots of feedback to CMMP-ers via WhatsApp.
But I still don’t feel like I’ve done much.
Ya know the feeling?
…stuff HAS been done…
But it shouldn’t have taken longer than 3–4 hours, let alone my entire working day.
(He says, lying through his teeth, because it’s 11pm here in the UK as I type this and my working day is SUPPOSED to finish at 8pm…)
The point I’m haphazardly arriving at is this:
Despite a lapse in productivity…
Despite personal things getting in the way…
Despite random sh*t that distracts you…
We, as professionals, STILL have to show up and move the needle.
Even if it’s SOMETHING.
I say this to copywriters in the Flaming Camel all the time.
My retainer-getting system does NOT require 10 hour days.
Doesn’t even require 10 hour weeks.
Just give me 3 or 4 solid hours Monday-Friday, and you’ll be in a great position.
(Hell, even 30 minutes per day, 5 days per week is enough to get traction and results)
Again — it’s about showing up consistently.
Moving the needle, even if it’s an inch.
(JUST like I’m doing here with this (now very meta) email)
That’s the beauty of the Flaming Camel process.
You don’t have to spend your life on Facebook and LinkedIn…
Mining your DMs and networking ‘till you’re blue in the face.
You don’t have to pump out mountains of content…
More often than not to the sound of crickets and perhaps one high-five-esque comment from another copywriter.
And, you don’t have to apply to job after job after job…
Battling the sweaty masses for a client who turns out to be a low-tier dreamer with a shoestring marketing budget.
In other words:
It’s not a giant time-suck.
Even when you don’t ‘feel’ like it, or your day simply isn’t that productive…
It’s VERY easy to send at least ONE Flaming Camel (or part of one to complete the following day) and move your copywriting business forward.
And I really do mean that… cos’ my approach is extremely high leverage.
i.e. it doesn’t require large input for large output.
(As the long list of 6-figure earners in my program will attest — many of whom joined already being VERY busy, either with clients or their kids/families)
If your hair is turning grey from time-sucking client-getting strategies that aren’t getting you the results you want…
I have a feeling the Flaming Camel will be right up your street.
Even more so if you’re trying to ‘level up’ your career but you’d describe yourself as being strapped for time.
