She Went From Teacher to Copywriter

I've certified many copywriters who hold degrees in professions not associated with writing – Physicians, attorneys, engineers... In fact, I've had relatively few students with any professional writing experience.

If you've ever thought about trading your current career for a writing career, but the transition seemed impossible, my guest this week may inspire you to follow your heart. Camille Pardo abandoned her "draining" teaching career to pursue a profitable passion – Copywriting.

Camille has had this passion for writing since childhood, but those around her encouraged her to choose a career that was more practical. That's understandable since the odds of your child being the next J. K. Rowling are slim to none. Why not point them in a direction that leads to a more practical and sustainable career? 

Click below to listen or watch Camille Pardo share the story of leaving her practical, sustainable teaching profession, and becoming a successful, work-from-anywhere, full-time copywriter. 

  • An early passion for writing was squelched for the sake of practicality
  • ​Entering the respectable, dependable, and always-in-demand profession of teaching
  • The book that changed her path (okay, it was probably more than the book, but I'll take partial credit)
  • Leaving a career when you're in your 30's - What will your family and friends think?
  • Can copywriting satisfy the desire to be a great storyteller, or is it all Open Rates and Clicks?
  • Certification required work - was it worth it?
  • Dealing with month one's discouraging, zero-dollar income
  • How (and why) to Show up and Serve
  • "There's something really cool about going all in."
  • How Camille can help you improve your emails (link below)
