What do you call a coworker who constantly sweet talks the CEO, overpromises and under-delivers with most of his marketing ideas, is lazy with design, takes credit for things others have done, asks for a raise, and gets what he wants because the CEO likes him?

A lot of people talk about timing in startups. What isn’t said often enough is to start asap. Don’t worry about timing. Just get started, there is never really a good or bad time to start. In fact, it has gotten harder in more ways than it’s gotten easier over time.

Don't underestimate the impact that pricing details have on your brand and positioning.

$49.99 vs $50 - affordable vs simple
$50 vs $125 - commodity vs premium
20% off vs never discounted - overpriced vs honest

Two years ago I created a “dream client list”.

I hadn’t looked at that list in a while but I just stumbled upon it in my Google drive and 50% of them are currently being served by @FoundationIncCo.

Still more to do.

But damn it feels good to see dreams come true.

Shout out to my millennial pals: remember when you were just breaking into the industry and there were some slightly older, established folks who showed up for you and helped you get a leg up/foot in the door/initial traction?

Non-copywriters will never understand how much mental and physical energy goes into writing good copy.

It's just this repeating process of refusing to settle with what you have and pushing your mind against a brick wall till it cracks... and it literally, physically hurts.
