What if there was a proven plan that made it easy to launch a freelance career from scratch?

It’s time to stop “winging it” and take the guess-work out of freelancing

Getting started and landing those first clients is the hardest part.

That’s why I created Escape Velocity.

It’s a step-by-step coaching program on how to kickstart a freelance career, attract quality clients, and confidently deliver great work.

"I officially got my first client!
 Here's the first of many thanks to the both of you!"

Wahida Lakhani

"Gah!! I got it! I just heard the news. The client has offered me the work at the full rate! Thank you so much for your guidance and advice!"

Alex Weatherill

"Escape Velocity demystified the entire freelance process and showed me that even with ZERO knowledge you can still make it work."

Ever wonder why some freelancers are flooded
with high-paying clients while others stay trapped
in ‘side hustle’ mode?
Ever wonder why some freelancers are flooded with high-paying clients while others stay trapped in 'side hustle' mode?
Why some copywriters are booked months in advance – even during tough times – while others constantly worry about where their next gig will come from?
 
I remember when I first launched into freelancing. I got sucked up into that “Information Spiral of Death.” I took course after course. Read book after book. Until a successful freelancing friend stopped me in my tracks when he said…

“You’re learning all this stuff. But do you want information? Or do you want to actually work?”

He was right. I had spent an entire year learning everything I could about copywriting and practicing alone at my kitchen table…

... But I was still completely lost as to how to land paying clients.

What should I be writing?

How do I create my portfolio when I’ve never had a client before?

How do I even know what a GOOD sample looks like?

What would I charge?

How do I collect the money?

What if someone says ‘yes’ and I’m in over my head?

What if my copy doesn’t perform?

And a hundred more unanswered questions standing in the way of creating escape velocity towards the freelance lifestyle I was dreaming of.
When I looked for help, it seemed like there were a ton of coaching programs out there designed to help existing, established businesses…
But none for new freelancers looking to prove the model and simply get paid good money for their freelance skills.

I didn’t need help scaling a massive business machine, I just need help getting STARTED with those first few clients. I needed expert guidance, and a proven plan to help me kickstart a sustainable business.

I was a recovering entertainer, so I had almost zero business skills.

I knew I couldn’t figure this out on my own.

I needed a SYSTEM to help me find clients and get paid for doing work I loved.

A system that would help me ditch the cheap, inconsistent hourly work and land REAL projects.
 
One that would help me develop the confidence I needed to deliver copy that works and charge good money for it.

To proudly wear the badge of “professional copywriter.”

That was the dream.
And most of all, I needed proof that I could actually make a real, consistent living with my copy skills. That my dream wasn’t just some wishful fantasy.
It wasn’t until I found an industry veteran who was willing to hold my hand, and guide me step-by-step that I realized I truly COULD launch and grow a successful freelance career.

Now, over a decade later, I can easily identify the things that would have made that whole awkward journey a heck of a lot easier. Like...

... A proven plan that’s already worked to help other freelancers launch a profitable career…

…. A way to focus and not get distracted by more information that doesn’t solve ‘right now’ challenges …

... A pricing and sales strategy that brings a constant flow of qualified leads and shows how to sell services like a pro…

… A clear process to take the guess-work out of working with clients, so I don’t have to “wing it” each time a new gig comes along...

… A seasoned pro to hold my hand throughout the entire process, keep me accountable, give me feedback, and help me develop confidence in my skills to deliver great work...

...Most importantly, a clear, step-by-step system to take me from part-time side hustle to well-paid freelancer who confidently wears the badge of “professional copywriter.”
That’s exactly why I created
The Escape Velocity Program
That’s exactly why I created 
The Escape Velocity Program

​To give new freelancers a clear roadmap to success as they build confidence in their skills and launch a freelance career from scratch.
 
To give them a "friction free" path to starting their business, landing quality clients, and getting paid great money to do work they love.

To give them the tools they need to manage clients and deliver great work like a pro.

And to give them a guide who’s been ‘in the trenches’ to give feedback and show them the way...

Someone to have their back and hold them accountable when ‘self sabotage’ mode kicks in, imposter syndrome rears its ugly head, or they run into tough obstacles that slow them down.

Leah Luong

"Before Escape Velocity I was floundering around and devouring free content from all over. I knew I needed a course, a coach to guide me. But I just didn't know where to go or who I could trust.
 
Escape Velocity gave me a great framework to laser focus on and so much more – exposure to an amazing community with writers of all levels, direct access to pros, and confidence that I CAN do this despite what everyone else is telling me IRL. Seriously thank you so so much."

Escape Velocity is designed to bridge the gap between first discovering the exciting world of freelancing, and proving that you’re ‘good enough’ to get paid well by great clients.

It’s built to give you complete control over your income – even during tough times – by helping you launch a “future proof” freelance business.

So if you feel like you’ve been absorbing courses, training, and resources like a sponge – but struggle to find a foothold to safely and successfully launch your freelance copy career – then Escape Velocity was made for you. 

Saad Sakho

"With Escape Velocity I finally saw freelancing as a system with separate parts (outreach, sales and delivering the copy). And the only way to master it is to get started.
 
It was a great experience.

Plus learning with fellow students and seeing their progress really inspired me to take action."

If you don’t know me, I’m Kevin Rogers, founder of Copy Chief and Escape Velocity.

I spent over a decade serving clients as a freelance copywriter,  and I still remember how impossible it seemed to get those first few clients.

I went from my very first gig – stumbling through a simple email project for 300 bucks – to eventually earning $50,000 from a single copy campaign.

I went from my very first gig – stumbling through a simple email project for 300 bucks – to eventually earning $50,000 from a single copy campaign. 
Along the way, I've made every mistake possible when it comes to attracting, landing, and delivering projects for clients.

I'm happy to report that, despite all my mistakes, I've been able to grow a 7-figure income freelancing, build a solid reputation in the industry, and create fantastic partnerships (and many lasting friendships) in the process.

Looking back, it’s easy to see what I was missing. 
  • A proven plan to help me build momentum (and cashflow) in my business quickly
  • Feedback on my work to help me build confidence in my skills
  • Expert guidance to help me avoid the common mistakes that stop many new freelancers from ever getting their business off the ground
Now I help freelancers avoid my mistakes and take the “friction free” path to building a sustainable, successful business.

I got tired of watching new freelancers struggle to get their business off the ground so they could quit their day jobs, spend more time with their families, and live life on THEIR terms.

That’s why I created the Escape Velocity Program – specifically to help new freelancers break through that barrier of finding your first few clients and getting paid to master their copy skills…

And to use my decade of industry connections to put them in the jet stream of the best gigs in the industry – helping them avoid all the low-level stuff and nightmare clients that so many new freelancers get trapped by.

Damian Lanfranchi, COO of MFA, oversees all of Todd's traffic campaigns. In Todd's own words, "Damian's traffic methods have been the secret weapon behind the monster growth of our company over the past year."

Every other week Damian tells you exactly what to do drive more conversions, more sales, and more profits from your Facebook Advertising.

You'll see more profitable traffic with the same process we use to get hundreds of new customers every day.

Lisa Perk

“I’ve made more forward progress in these weeks than I had in a year because never before had anyone taught me how to actually market my services.

Thank you for everything in Escape Velocity. I have spent a lot of money on ‘getting ready to get ready’ and I can honestly say that I have never felt such depth of knowledge and so much passion for launching people as I felt from this program.

I’ve also had some great Zoom calls with other EV members too! The positive attitude is deep with these peeps.”

The program is designed to break through what I call “The Confidence Conundrum”
– the vicious cycle of needing confidence in your skills to deliver great work for clients…

… but needing clients to develop that confidence in the first place.

I remember feeling terrified that I’d be in over my head if a client said ‘yes’ to a project I didn’t feel qualified for.

Escape Velocity is designed to let you “borrow” hard-earned confidence from this proven system that has worked for me and thousands of my students inside Copy Chief.

So you can take the guess-work out of applying for jobs and know exactly what clients are looking for in a copywriter. So you don’t feel like you're “winging it” when you dive head-first into a new project.

We’ve all followed the same clear path to launching and growing successful freelance careers.
And now you can too.

Join me and a hand-picked select group of freelancers as we publicly open the door to Escape Velocity for the first time.

By the end of this 10-week coaching program, you’ll be able to:
  • Choose and develop your copywriting “money skills”– the most in-demand copy skills that clients are hiring for right now
  • Identify your ‘Unique Copywriting DNA’ so you can find clients that are the best fit for your specific skill set, background, and experience level
  • Find clients who need your specific money skills and value your work
  • ​Generate a constant flow of qualified new leads
  • ​Competitively price your services so you always get paid well for your work
  • ​Sell yourself as a professional copywriter so that clients see you as a valued expert
  • ​Design and structure your packages and contracts
  • ​Write and pitch a winning proposal
  • ​Master the sales call and close the deal
  • ​Legitimize your business so clients see you as a respected professional
  • ​Build lasting relationships with driven freelancers who will always have your back
  • ​And more...
All with seasoned freelance copywriters answering your questions, giving you feedback on your work, and holding you accountable while walking you through this proven system step-by-step.

Plus - you’ll be building a network of talented “battle buddies” – backing you and helping make the process FUN as you join an active community of ambitious and creative freelancers.

There’s a reason our motto is “Nobody Writes Alone.” You’ll have to put in the time and effort of course, but thanks to this private community, I promise we’ll have a heck of a great time doing it!

In fact, I JUST received this message from one of our Escape Velocity students:

Anna Iveson

In Escape Velocity, I got a client that nearly replaced my monthly corporate salary. The difference is I achieved it working about 20 hours a week, instead of 60 hours a week like I did at my corporate job! 

Josh Bowen

My first client came directly from Escape Velocity. He said he liked the posts and feedback I was giving, and he wanted to hire me. That one job paid for Escape Velocity!

I get messages every week from freelancers like Jess telling they’ve landed fantastic copy clients by using what they learned in Escape Velocity.

Am I bragging a bit?

Absolutely!

I couldn’t be prouder of my students and what they’ve achieved. They’ve proven the model and gotten paid great money to confidently deliver great work to clients they love working with.

Many of them are now their own boss with their own full-time business. Others have chosen to work remotely for great companies. Some are working from home so they can watch their kids grow up. Others are traveling the world with other Copy Chief members as a band of nomadic copywriters.

That’s the beauty of freelancing – YOU call the shots!

Now it’s your turn.

Annie Aaroe

The EV group has been such an inspiration and motivation. There’s so much spirit and drive here. Not to mention the feedback, ideas and wealth of talent that helps me grow as a copywriter. I didn’t know how to balance my life before EV. Now I feel like I have a plan. EV helped me narrow down a speciality so I can focus my learning and practice. I figured out through EV how to leverage my previous experience to create real value for my own freelance business and the skills I offer my clients.

Here’s how it works…

Over five training sessions, I’ll guide you to…

 1. Determining your copywriting specialty

The fastest way to get up and running with new clients as a freelancer is to choose a specialty and put yourself in the jet stream of clients ready to hire copywriters right now.

In Session 1 I’ll show you how to use your existing knowledge to choose an in-demand specialty that puts you at a massive advantage over anyone calling themselves simply a “copywriter.”

2. Choose and develop your #1 “Money Skill”
 
In Session 2, you’ll match your specialty with a copywriting skill that’s in high demand with clients across the most active niches right now (like email copy, Facebook ads, and pre-sell landing pages).

3. Price and packaging your services to sell
 
In Session 3 you will price and package up the samples you create so your client has everything they need to make hiring you an easy choice.

4. Finding your ideal clients and pitching them your services
 
In Session 4 we’ll learn how to find clients who desperately need your money skill and meet are willing to pay good money for it. We’ll walk you through the outreach process to get in front of them, and put together a professional proposal that positions you as a respected, expert professional.

5. Connecting with your best clients and closing the deal
 
In Session 5 you’ll meet freelancers who recently launched their own careers through my flagship program, Real Free Life, and are now commanding top dollar with their specialties. Some have become so successful in a short time they are no longer accepting new clients because their calendars are completely booked. You’ll get the step-by-step playbook for what to say, and what not to say to close the deal with new clients.

Some have become so successful in a short time they are no longer accepting new clients because their calendars are completely booked. You’ll get the step-by-step playbook for what to say, and what not to say to close the deal with new clients.

After every training session, you’ll have a full two weeks to complete the assignments and create the assets for your freelancing business.
 
And we’ll get together on a live Q&A call on the in-between weeks so I can answer your questions live.

Plus, we’ll have a private forum where you can ask your coach questions, and get support from your fellow students.

We’ll be together for a full 10 weeks, and you’ll have more than enough time to go through the training at your own pace.

Plus – this is the LAST round of Escape Velocity where you can get coaching from Kevin Rogers. We’re shifting into a more self-directed training program to make Escape Velocity more accessible for everyone.

So THIS is your last chance to go through the program with Kevin as your personal coach.

You’ll also have several rockstar copywriters guiding you as your co-coaches. That means you can connect with experienced, successful copywriters who are working in the field with big clients every single day. You’ll be able to ask them questions, submit your copy for feedback, and even respond to job postings from clients who are looking for a copywriter RIGHT NOW. 

Arnie Davidson

"The community at Copy Chief and Escape Velocity are both amazing and nurturing and unselfish. Qualities that are often promised, but rarely delivered.
  
I'm new to copywriting, but have always been self-employed. It was refreshing to hear about focusing on the Money Skills, rather than a kind of amorphous copying copy approach to success.

A big takeaway for me was ditching the dozens of copy advisors in my Inbox, realizing that everything that I need is right here.

Thank you for this program and amazing community. This place that feels like home."

How Do I Know Escape Velocity Will Work For Me?

Even though I’ve coached thousands of freelancers through this same process, I know this stuff can be scary when you’re first starting out. That’s why I offer a 30-day 100% money-back guarantee. 

Kevin's Freelancer Success Guarantee

Kevin's Freelancer Success Guarantee

I want you to be 100% satisfied with your experience in Escape Velocity, so here’s how my guarantee works.
 
Within 30 days of the program’s start date, I want you to:

  • Log into the private Escape Velocity training dashboard
  • Introduce yourself to your coach and fellow students by replying to the welcome message
  • Attend the first 2 live calls
  • ​Complete the simple assignments

After doing this, if you’re not convinced that Escape Velocity is right for you, then simply send an email to support [at] copychief.com for a full and immediate refund. No hassle, no worries.

Again, I’m only looking to help those who are open and ready to receive it. I believe this is the most fair way for you to test out Escape Velocity and make sure it’s a good fit. If you’re willing to do these 4 steps then I know, even if you decide not to stay, you’ll have gotten excellent value and maybe we’ll meet again another time.

If you’re the kind of person who likes to “collect” courses but rarely puts them to use, then I recommend you pass on Escape Velocity until you’re ready to commit. This program is designed and dedicated to creating real, actionable value for freelancers who are truly ready to “make it work” as a freelancer.

I want Escape Velocity to be the turning point in your career, just like it’s been for so many other freelancers (as you’ve seen in the stories on this page), so join us when you’re ready and let’s go “all in” together.

You deserve nothing less.

Sound good?

Carl Ashton
"There is no better place to be, and no better
people to be around for this journey, than Copy Chief, Escape Velocity, and everyone here."

Fotis Chatzinicolaou

"I've purchased 3 other freelancing courses in the past and my aha moment with Escape Velocity was that I don't need to write long-form sales letters. I can start with my specialty (email) and still earn good money.
 
I also slapped myself when I saw how much others charge per email. No way I'm gonna charge less going forward now that I know how to set my prices."

What's The Investment?

The enrollment fee for Escape Velocity is $1999. That includes the 5 trainings, 5 live Q&A sessions with me, the weekly homework assignments, and ongoing accountability and coaching to help you through the program.

Plus, you’ll get Kevin Rogers answering your questions LIVE.  

To be clear, Escape Velocity is not for everyone.

Last session I interviewed nearly 100 freelancers and only selected a handful of them who I thought were a good fit for the program.

I do this so I can work with each student personally, and to make sure the group gels together and supports each other. That’s one of the most inspiring parts and I want to see that continue.

I also do this because I want to make sure you’re investing in the program for the right reasons.

A lot of times I speak to freelancers who aren’t ready to invest in themselves and their business. They want to wait until they ALREADY have clients.

But the way I see it, you’ve got 2 options:

Option #1 - You can go off on your own and keep doing what you've been doing so far, hoping it all clicks for you without any guidance...

And in my 14+ years in the biz, I've seen freelancers take as long as 7 years to land a good client. Not for lack of effort of course. But just because they’re repeating the same stuff that didn't work for them, thinking it'll "work out eventually.”

Or you can take Option #2 – Having a seasoned guide personally lead you step-by-step through a proven system that’s worked for thousands of freelancers in the past.

If you’re committed to making this a priority in your life, then Escape Velocity can shave years off the typical learning curve to landing your first clients and owning your new life as a professional copywriter. It can help you shortcut that huge, difficult process.

But only if you’re ready to take the leap, and truly commit to making your freelance skills work for you.

That’s why I’m opening up Escape Velocity to a limited number of students only. Go-getters. People who “get it” and who are truly ready to commit and make their freelance business a success.

Is that you? 

Jason Hakes

The feedback inside of Escape Velocity was so helpful. I learned to feel confident in what I knew instead of worrying about what I didn’t know. It eliminated a lot of my imposter syndrome. Plus, I don’t worry about getting clients anymore. What I learned inside Escape Velocity, stacked on top of the support this network gives each other, I know I’ll always be able to get work. When prospecting, I’m sending out fewer inquiries than I used to, but they are so much better, and they get results.

This is the real deal. A system that’s been proven, tested, and successfully launched profitable careers for thousands of freelancers.

To be clear, the Escape Velocity program is not me simply showing you how it’s done. You’ll be putting the lessons into action in real time, so that by the end of it you’re already implementing and seeing the results.

I have seen this program change lives and careers. There’s nothing else to say, except:
Escape Velocity is a game-changer for anyone who wants to launch and grow a successful, sustainable freelance copy career.

Me and my co-coaches are going to personally help and guide you through the course. You'll learn exactly how to find clients who need your money skills, price and sell your services, and deliver great work you can be proud of.

Escape Velocity is not only about getting paid for your copy skills. It’s also about how YOU think about yourself, your skills, and your ability to take control of your income and your life for the long run.

So if you’re...
  • Tired of struggling to find clients
  • Tired of getting underpaid
  • Tired of winging it and feeling 'in over your head'
  • ​Tired of wondering if your work is "good enough"
  • ​Tire of worry about where the next project will come from
  • ​Tired of wondering what to charge
  • ​Tired of panicking when someone asks you for samples or your rates
  • ​Tired of attending conferences and events and feeling like you haven’t made progress you're proud of
  • ​Tired of stumbling forward on your own without someone who’s done it all before to help
  • ​Tired of seeing people with less drive and ambition than you build successful freelance careers
​Then Escape Velocity will give you the tools, the plan, accountability, and the hands-on coaching to launch a profitable and sustainable freelance career and start getting paid good money for your copy skills.

Plus, it will put you into a network of other successful and supportive freelancers who’ve made the leap and are reaping the rewards.

If this feels like a good fit for you, claim your spot by clicking the link below.

Will you become my latest success story?
I can’t think of a reason why not.

Our session together will begin in July 2020.

I look forward to seeing you there.

Paul Tolhurst

"With Escape Velocity, I shifted from finding out about copy, (listening to podcasts, reading books, hoarding emails). – To writing and getting feedback. I also found clarity – Choosing one money skill and narrowing my focus helped me a lot.
 
Having great teachers was the fuel, but seeing everybody get their feet wet was just as inspiring."

"This was the kick in the pants I needed! I joined Escape Velocity for the accountability, the live coaching, and the “workshop” aspect. Being able to have a classroom of people learning all at the same time made for a far better experience than other online courses.
 
The most valuable thing I gained from this course was the belief that making a well-paying career out of this was actually possible. I’ve put in a lot of work to try to make that psychological shift. Going through Escape Velocity helped me finally succeed in changing that belief. I’ve actually raised my prices in my other field as a result.

Also, having a network is paramount; having people who truly understand what you’re going through and what your daily day is like makes all the difference. Having people around you who get it is irreplaceable. Thank you for being such amazing coaches and teachers. I’m excited to see how we all continue to evolve over the rest of the year!"

Questions About Escape Velocity

 Is Escape Velocity right for me?

Escape Velocity is designed for people who want to launch a freelance copy career from scratch. We’ll learn how to position ourselves as more than just “copywriters,” package and price our services, find clients who are desperate for our specific skills, pitch and sell our services like a pro, and legitimize our business.
 
Last session I interviewed nearly 100 freelancers and only selected a handful of them who I thought were a good fit for the program.

I do this so I can work with each student personally, and to make sure the group gels together and supports each other. That’s one of the most inspiring parts and I want to see that continue.

I also do this because I want to make sure you’re investing in the program for the right reasons. A lot of times I speak to freelancers who aren’t ready to invest in themselves and their business.

They want to wait until they ALREADY have clients to invest. But I’ve seen freelancers take 7, even 10 years to get their first real client. And I know that Escape Velocity can help you shortcut that huge, difficult process.

But I understand that, sometimes, getting what you ask for is SCARY. So if someone isn’t ready to commit to truly making their freelance business work for them, then I advise them to wait until they’re ready to fully commit.

If you’re not sure if this is right for you, then my advice is to take advantage of our 30-day 100% money-back guarantee described above.

 How long is the program?

The program is 10 weeks long. 

 Is this a live coaching program or a self-directed course?

The Escape Velocity Q&A calls are live, taught personally by Copy Chief’s Kevin Rogers. To make Escape Velocity more accessible to freelancers of all levels, we’ll be shifting to a more self-directed learning course which you can go through at your own pace.
 
As a result, this round of Escape Velocity in July 2020 is the LAST TIME the program will be taught LIVE by Kevin. So if you’re on the fence, don’t wait! This is your last chance to get personal coaching from Kevin and join the live Q&A calls.

 How much time will I need to dedicate to the program each week?

Plan to set aside 3-5 hours per week for the program. We’ll have a 90 minute live call each week, and you’ll have weekly homework assignments to complete. You’ll also want to spend time in the private community asking questions and learning from your fellow students.

 Do I have to attend the live calls?

I highly recommend attending the live calls so you can stay on track, and ask questions in real-time. But we know that sometimes work schedules and time zones get in the way. There will be a replay of each coaching session and Q&A session available in the private Escape Velocity training dashboard.

 How much is the investment?

The enrollment fee for Escape Velocity is $1999. That includes the 5 trainings, 5 live Q&A sessions with me, the weekly homework assignments, and ongoing accountability and coaching to help you through the program. Plus you’ll get access to the private Escape Velocity forum where you can connect with other members. 

 What if I don’t already have paying clients or can’t invest in the program?

I often meet new freelancers who feel they’re not ready to invest in the program because they want to get clients FIRST. They want to have a steady stream of income before investing in themselves, their skills, and their business.
 
I’ve also seen freelancers attend the same copywriting conferences for 3, 5, even 10 years and STILL not land those clients. I can say with confidence that Escape Velocity will help you shortcut that huge, tough process.

As someone who’s been in that position before, and has now coached thousands of freelancers out of that same position, I can tell you with confidence that it’s the other way around.
I know it looks bleak now, but if you’ll let me mentor you a little here…

… I can see around the corner that you’re still walking up to. I know that you don’t know what’s on the other side, and I have been there.

My advice is to make decisions and invest based on the future freelancer version of yourself…
… not the limited version of where you are right now.

Because if you join me in Escape Velocity, then in 10 weeks you will be able to call yourself a proven freelancer. You will be a much more evolved freelancer version of yourself in less than 90 days.

I can’t promise you success. But if you join me in Escape Velocity I can promise that I will be there with you every step of the way. 

 What if English is not my first language?

I often get students from other countries who have learned English as a second language. In my experience, while it may take you a little longer to learn the basics…
 
… being a non-native English speaker actually gives you an advantage over other writers!
Native speakers often overwrite and over complicate their copy. Lucky for you that you haven’t developed that bad habit throughout your lifetime.

I like to use Evaldo Albuquerque as a great example of this. Evaldo is from Brazil and came to the United States and learned English as a second language. He’s now the head copywriter for one of the biggest financial publishers in the world, and is one of the highest paid copywriters in the entire country.

Alex Ko, Copywriter for The Motley Fool

"My biggest takeaway from Escape Velocity is how to write these copywriting “money skills” It’s less daunting than a sales page, much easier to specialize, and the perfect step-one service to offer clients. Before EV I didn’t know much about the money skills, but now I enjoy writing them! I also now stay consistent with publishing authority content every week and writing copy every day. EV showed me how important it is to “put in the reps” and not just stay in the knowledge and learning phase."

"Final update after Escape Velocity – the client deal is finalized. Escape Velocity achieved!"

Alex Weatherill

"Here’s what I took away from Escape Velocity:
 
1. Consistency/process is the key to getting Momentum.
With limited time and energy, 30 minutes in the calendar beats random motivation every time (duh!). Escape Velocity has forced me to figure my process out.

2. The power of the right people/community.
Before EV, I was too scared to ask questions or comment on anything in the forum. I've done a lot of the training but never posted any work for critique.
Well after watching fellow Escape Velocity members, Rachel, and Kevin in action, my perspective has changed. I've realized that engaging with the right people and getting useful feedback can be like steroids for your skills and momentum. Moving forward I will be engaging way more in the Copychief community, even as a total beginner!

3. Backstage Pricing and confidence.
What happens if they don't want your package of 5 ads? Or the projects shifts from email to facebook? How do you price it out and have the confidence to stick with your numbers? Backstage pricing has given me the framework to figure out the right pricing even if the clients needs shift. It's also given me the ability to have confidence in the pitch.

Thank you for this amazing program! Looking forward to going through it again, and again, and again!"
