    He Makes $1,500 per Hour Using A.I.

    Many technological advances come with a healthy dose of fear, and that has definitely been the case with AI - especially with writers and artists.

    "Why would someone pay me when they can just ask an AI to generate something for them at virtually no cost?"

    This week, I have an answer...one that gives me the right to gloat a bit.

    Since the beginning of the A.I. craze, I have maintained that A.I. is a tool...An extremely powerful tool that works best when wielded by a skilled artist.

    On this episode, you'll hear about an "A.I. Artist" who is making $1,500 an hour using this tool - and he's completely upfront about who (or what) is doing the heavy lifting.
    Key Insights
    ​​A.I. will help us, not hurt us (IF we use it correctly) ​My earlier email from the Daily Ray (details below) ​Use A.I. as your "Unfair Advantage" ​The article about the titular artist (linked below) ​Why didn't the company just use the same tools the artist used? ​"We don't care how he makes it. We only care that the end user enjoys our game." (let that soak in)​ ​Sign up for our upcoming free workshop about building your writing business  Transcript and Video

    Some of these are so simple that you may be tempted to skip them...don't. I'm doing everything I can to make sure that my business continues to thrive while weathering any storms that lie ahead, including each and every one of these steps:

    Recognize the season - For the world, for you, and for your business Check the Basics of your business - Know the state of your List, Traffic, Conversion, and Retention Gather Your Assets - Get an accurate read of what your assets really are​ Go Premium - Shift to premium offers for premium clients ​Be Essential - Put yourself in your client's shoes...could you live without you, or would you get cut? ​See the Opportunity in Adversity - Sounds bad, but it's not. People struggling need help. Provide them the help that you are able to render. ​Guard Your Mind - Disconnect from the news, the social sewers, and as much negativity as possible.

    Writing as Sacred Work

    Writing as Sacred Work

    I want to talk to you about the incredible power of writing.

    The power of storytelling.

    And how it can help you connect with your divine purpose. Yes, even if the writing you do is marketing or sales copy.

    That’s the subject of this week’s podcast episode.

    In the podcast, I propose the idea that we writers are, in a sense, prophets. And as prophets, we are tasked with spreading a message of love, hope, and purpose to the world … through our work.

    I know it’s a little “out there” - but it’s short.

    Books that inspired me to become a writer (a storyteller)
    Writers create Worlds We should transport our readers, viewers, and listeners to somewhere good I literally copied people's work...but not to steal - to learn Regardless of the business you're in, you're telling a story Writing is not a job...it's a noble calling Whatever you're writing, do it as an act of devotion Your words have power Transcript and Video

    14 Days Unplugged

    14 Days Unplugged

    Let me preface this by acknowledging that most people (myself included) cannot instantly, and completely "disconnect" for two weeks. In my case, I had a full two years of notice, and it still wasn't easy.

    ​Back in 2022, my wife and I decided to actually take the trip we'd been talking about taking for decades: A trip to the Netherlands. We purchased a non-refundable, non-transferable, two-week package for the two of us. I was committed. No turning back. 

    ​Like any driven entrepreneur, I had concerns about how well my business would run without me. 14 days of being off-the-radar...How could I possibly plan for every scenario? How could I deal with all of the "what if's" that were consuming my thoughts? Short answer...I couldn't. I had to trust that my business, my team, and my normal life, would all be waiting for me when I returned. And, guess what...I'm back, everything is intact, and I am much improved.

    ​I (and probably you, to some degree) have an addiction to staying connected. For the first week of our trip, I had to stifle my little bouts of anxiety until I could completely let go, and be fully present with my wife, her family, the amazing people I met, and my unusual surroundings. My memories of this adventure are clear – unclouded by "doom scrolling", work check-ins, and phone calls. 

    This internet-free clarity allowed me to jot down a few observations that I thought were worthy of sharing. That's what I have for you on this week's episode.
    5 Things I Learned After Being Unplugged For 14 Days
    ​Endless striving does not produce more freedom - It produces more bondage ​The best, intentional marketing campaign is simply to help people ​The best way to get a bigger vision of the world is to "get out in it" ​Recreation re-creates us ​Writers will save the world Transcript of this Episode
    rayedwards.com/657
    Listen to get the complete breakdown of each of these observations. I'll be back next week with another fresh episode.

    There's a reason it isn't converting, and most likely, it's one (or more) of the 5 reasons I'm about to give you.

    Listen to learn what they are, and how to fix them.

    The Most Important Skill For Any Business

    The Most Important Skill For Any Business

    This is part 2 of the "Writer's Rewind" series. I'm devoting this month to covering some of the fundamentals of great copy, and in the case of this week's episode, why copy itself is so fundamentally important to the success of your business, regardless of what that business is.

    ​This episode was originally released almost a decade ago (the day I celebrated my 50th birthday). I must admit, I was pleased that none of this content is "outdated". All the reasons I gave  to support my claim are no less true today than they were then. 
    Five Reasons Why Copywriting is the Most Important Skill For Any Business
    ​ It costs nothing, but returns can be huge ​It can generate instant cash infusions ​Copy builds stabilized income streams ​Write once, profit indefinitely ​Copy provides strategic positioning Links
    ​The Membership Experience - Part 2 of Stu McLaren's once-a-year training workshop is happening later today (4/8/24). If you're seeing this on that day, count yourself lucky and grab your free seat. This is must-see training for anyone who is interested in creating recurring revenue for their business. It's live at 3 p.m. Eastern, and I highly recommend watching the live stream if possible. Stu typically has  "bonus content" that doesn't make the replay, but if the replay is all you can get, take it! Get the transcript for this episode How You Can Help

Such Rich Content

Glad to hear Sean back on the podcast. I think it was A TON to glean from this latest episode. 2020 was such a monumental year for a lot of reasons but it’s so unique and interesting to hear the navigation from a local stores perspective. Definitely some things to ponder on but this was another awesome and rich episode!
