The Lifestyle Of A Freelance Copywriter

Copywriter Brad Dunn

Haris: Hi Brad. I’m really glad you agreed to this interview because you have so much to share about freelance copywriting. Let’s start with how you got started in copywriting?

Brad: Sure. That’s a fairly easy one to answer! It all started when I was standing in a book store in Los Angeles, CA. I picked up a copy of ‘The Copywriter’s Handbook’ by Robert Bly.

But let me put things in some perspective… I have been writing steadily for about 30 years now. I majored in film at the University of Maryland, and in my junior year I wrote my first long-form work, a feature-length screenplay. To date, I’ve written 15 screenplays, three novels, about 100 short stories, poetry – etc. So I come from a highly creative background.

My Top 10 Quotes On Quitting Your Job

I’ve never really understood why so many people stick to a job or company that is bad and doesn’t feel right. Life is short – don’t waste it. If you have something that keeps you awake at night and makes you forget about time completely – follow it.

Passion makes all the difference. Don’t be afraid to follow your dream and do what you really love. For me this has always be the theme of my life. Not living on someone else’s terms. Sure, there may be phases where you have to make a living, pay bills and have obligations you have to meet, but don’t let it become a permanent state.

There is one thing I am convinced of: to be truly free, you have to work for yourself.

To keep you motivated, I have put together my top ten quotes on quitting your job.

Haris: Hi Brocton, thanks a lot for agreeing to share your best tips on getting copywriting clients and your background. Let’s start with how you got started in copywriting? Please, tell us more about your story.

Brocton: I started reading the Gary Halbert letter when I was 16. When I read his story of how he had 40 full-time employees whose only job was to cash the checks coming in from his famous Coat of Arms letter, I craved that power.

So I read everything I could. I bought everything I could afford, and some things I couldn’t, from Gary Halbert, Scott Haines, John Carlton, Carl Galetti, Dan Kennedy, etc. I bought all the classic books by or about guys like Robert Collier, Bruce Barton, David Ogilvy, Albert Lasker, John Kennedy, Eugene Schwarz.

I became obsessed.
