Let’s jump right in because I’m feeling very pay-it-forwardish today.
I did this same giveaway a year ago when more than half of you weren’t subscribers yet and I feel like everyone except James Knight deserves another shot at winning. He won the last round.
Imposter syndrome is a highly overused phrase among writers. I’m not sure why we can’t just know we’re doing something good and go with it instead of questioning, second-guessing, and sweating bullets before we do something as simple as hit a submit button.
There’s a book for writers like this.
If you’re not familiar with Ash Ambirge, she’s a woman who built a seven-figure copywriting business based on the middle finger. Yes, she flipped everyone the bird and became a millionaire.
Anyway, I gleaned a lot of inspiration and a ton of laughs out of her book and I’d like to pass on the good vibes again so I’m giving away a copy to one of you.
I’d like to send a copy to all of you but that doesn’t agree with my bank statement.
This is what Ash Ambirge has to say about her book and I can certainly attest to the highlighter fatigue part:
“Readers of this book have been known to quit their day jobs, do something brave, build fabulous and lucrative businesses, drink wine before 4 pm, and go on to build generally amazing lives—despite wherever they started. Common side effects include highlighter fatigue, excessive chuckling, and severe neck cramps. Content not suitable for defeatists, naysayers, or the Swedish (because how much better could your life possibly get?)”
She is the only person I’m aware of that can make growing up in a trailer park sound riveting and her journey as a writer definitely beats mine in the rags to riches department.
I got my start on a tropical island, I can’t complain.
If you’d like to take a shot at winning a copy of the book:
