Check out this incredible conversation I had with my fellow word-nerd, Molly Rouse-DiCioccio.

Molly has an amazing insight as to (as she puts it) "why people do stuff". Once you understand the psychology of your audience, the right words become obvious.

And, of course, if you're a copywriter that can "connect", you can charge appropriately (6-figures in the case of the project we discussed), and are free to work from wherever.

  • ​Molly's fascination with human behavior and psychology drives her passion for marketing and helping people with marketing psychology, influence, persuasion, and mental triggers
  • ​​The importance of copywriting skills (and where to learn them)
  • ​How Molly ​used the PASTOR formula to write a proposal that secured a $120,000 deal
  • ​Language is powerful!  Mastering it is important not just in copywriting, but also in ALL communication​
  • ​ "It's better not to speak at all unless what you're going to say expresses compassion, inspiration, or mutual benefit."
  • ​Mind your mental state: Don't write when you're angry​
  • ​AI is a powerful tool to give you a start, but human understanding of how words are perceived and the psychological impact is still crucial.

  • ​AI-generated copy still needs human help to be more than mediocre
  • Coaches help people navigate imposter syndrome, loneliness, and lack of clarity by focusing on time management, productivity, and finding meaning in their work
