Writing Gets You Everything You Want

On last week's episode, I boldly declared, "Writing gets you everything you want." This week, I'm giving you some proof of how that has been true in my life.

​You may already be thinking, "But Ray, you're a writer...of course writing has been important in your career."

The thing is, the proof I'm offering today has nothing to do with writing jobs. I wasn't hired to be a writer, but my writing is what got me hired, kept me working, got me promotions, and many other opportunities I would not have gotten otherwise.

Okay, enough of the preamble, let's get to the proof...Click below to listen or watch. 

  • ​Where I came from (and why I didn't want to stay there)
  • ​My early marketing lessons - promoting family businesses
  • Writing increased my value in the radio business - it made me less expendable
  • ​Clients loved me because I wrote ads that made them money
  • ​My pitch for a six-figure job was written with the same sales-letter tactics I use today
  • ​My writing made me a sought-after talent in my industry
  • ​My long (50+ pages) pitch for a job with Citadel Broadcasting made me more than a half million dollars in personal income (not bad for a non-writing job)
  • ​My writing has allowed me to meet, learn from, and even teach many of my mentors
  • ​Subscribe to The Daily Ray for valuable tips, interesting observations, and occasional offers
