This week, I have a potentially unpopular answer to a very popular question: How do I upgrade my clients?

The serial-refunders, the constant complainers, the manipulators...and of course, people who are downright rude to you and your team. How do you avoid them? Even more to the point: How do you get the kind of clients you actually want?

[00:00] How do I upgrade my clients?
[00:46] You're not going to like this answer, but...

How much "Authenticity" is too much? How much of your personal life should you share with your clients or followers?

A friend of mine recently gave me a not-so-subtle reminder that I am blessed to have a schedule full of things that I have chosen to do. She did this on the heels of me explaining to her how busy I was... "I have to spend 3 days in a studio recording my audio book, I've got to prepare for two upcoming workshops, I have to fly to Orlando for a mastermind meeting," and so on.

She reminded me that I was complaining about things that many people are praying for.

I am blessed to have a publisher who believes in my new book and has allowed me to record in my own voice.

I am blessed to have people willing to travel to Spokane to learn from me.

I am blessed to be part of a Mastermind group that allows me to learn from people I admire.

Same schedule...Different perspective.

That's what this week's episode is all about.

[00:00] I'm quitting...
[01:02] What's wrong with saying I'm busy?
[01:37] Be impeccable with your word
[02:40] My wakeup call
[03:46] Complaining about blessings
[06:29] My energy, my fault
[07:08] Read This Or Die

You might be thinking, "Why the 180, Ray? Haven't you been pitching A.I. as an incredible new tool? Aren't you marketing your own copywriting A.I.?"

still believe A.I. is an incredible tool - And yes, I'm very pleased with my company's A.I. software - BUT, as I said when I first started in this business, you must be more than just a copywriter.

That was true then, but now...it's absolutely critical.

If you're counting on copywriting alone, you're not only eligible for a quick replacement, you're also doing a disservice to your clients (the ones you'll likely be losing soon).

[01:01] “The amount of money we receive will always be in a direct ratio to the demand for what we do, our ability to do it, and the difficulty in replacing us.” - Earl Nightingale
[01:45] It's already happening...as predicted
[02:10] Our Copywriting A.I. (ClarityScribe)
[02:37] You MUST be more than a copywriter to compete with other copywriters
[04:07] Understanding the context
[05:17] To be competent you must study (the right people)
[05:49] Understanding the history of this business
[06:53] My point: Understand the whole process
[08:21] Find a "working" mentor
