Our world is changing so fast. Having a degree is not enough anymore to give you enough security in a saturated marketplace. Your educational background is only one side of the coin.
How you communicate with everyone else and the personal skills you have is the other side of the coin, which unfortunately people nowadays don’t give much attention to.

Copywriting is simply converting words into money or results. For example, you send a proposal to a company or a customer to try and sell your product by showing them why it is better than your competitors, or you write down your CV and submit it to an employer seeking a job opportunity. What you write down will determine, whether you peak the consumer’s or the employer’s interest and close the sale without even speaking to them on phone or in person.
It is different from the academic writing. It doesn’t have a specific structure or length. You just need to convince (close) the reader with your words, that your idea, product or yourself is the best solution for their problems.
Learn how to transform your words into results and/or money.

Results vs Tasks Orientation
We are programmed to be task oriented. You have a “to do list” and you are really happy by the end of the day if you have done it all.
The question is, what are the results of what you have done?
You get paid based on results. Nobody cares how much effort or how many hours, years you have invested to get the job done. People care about results.
Are you really happy with your results?
If the answer is YES, then congratulations keep it up! If the answer is NO, you have to change the way you think and how you operate.
You get paid based on Results, keep that in mind!
You can’t do it all alone. You must be have a great team.
You don’t live alone on this planet, nor can you survive alone. You need friends to support you, and a good team to get the job done and achieve great results.
Choose your partner, friends and team wisely. They will either lift you up to success or bring you down to failure.
Don’t be afraid of failure and doing mistakes, because that how you grow.
Schools teach you, how to get the best grades with the least mistakes possible. That is their scale, but in life you will fail first and then you will learn. Failures will make you strong, if you survive them.
The faster you fail and survive (especially mentally), the faster you will succeed.
Learn, Unlearn, Relearn, Repeat
There is no guarantee that was working last year, will still work today. Sometimes you have to unlearn what you thought was working before, because the world is changing too fast and you have to keep up with it.
The process is; when you learn a new skill or something new in your career, you need to unlearn something else that is not keeping up with today’s world and relearn an old topic, or skill until you master it. Then repeat the process.
You have to be an active learning machine.
