3 Big Mistakes I Made During My Solo Writing Retreat

Uncategorized

I designated this weekend as a Solo Writing Retreat. I envisioned diving in deep to work on copy for 2 big client projects. Me, my Mac, and my Muse. It was going to be sweeeeet!

And yet even with the best intentions set, I made some big, very commonvery painful mistakes. The kinds of mistakes I COACH my clients on how to avoid. As I found myself in the “deer in headlights” pose I felt totally humbled.

and

“My Clients are saying YES to my Offer!”
