And none of them are too positive, and I'm pretty open-minded when it comes to marketing. 

Okay... I just hit the 3:50 mark where he starts rapping. I'm at a loss for words.

Here's an (affiliate) link for a nice deal site Jen and I have been having a lot of fun with. So far we've taken a two hour cruise around Newport Beach (with bottomless champagne and a free all you can eat brunch) for $35. The retail value was $180.

Upcoming dates for us include an Aura Spin Class (it's like some meditation spin workout -- sounded interesting so I signed up) and an improv show.

You get big discounts and dates for couples, and you get to pick one free date per month, all for $18 monthly.

You can try it out for free by clicking the link below. You'll get $50 credit to apply towards your first date, and you can pick a free date for the first month. Basically, you and your partner can go on two fancy dates for under $50. You also get big discounts on monthly coffee and cooking clubs.

I could describe it as Groupon for couples, but that wouldn't do it justice. It's what Groupon should have been.

Get your first free month here: http://couples.howaboutwe.com/refer/350257

Freelance Copywriter and Marketer
Introduction
People often ask me what a copywriter does. They think I sit at a desk and with a giant stamp approving stuff. I wish it were that simple. Even though what I do is a lot more involved that that, I enjoy it immensely. 

So what is a copywriter? 

Do you know what sales is? And do you know what writing is? A copywriter is someone who sells through writing. I write copy (i.e., words) for people that have a product or service they want to share with the world. Share in the form of selling, that is. 

What else do I do?

Glad you asked. I work part time as a longshoreman! It's fun, even though it's just 1-2 days a week. I wrote an article about life on the docks here

Is that all you do?

Of. Course. Not. I have a lot of hobbies, like juicing, crossfit, blogging, reading, visiting museums, talking, coming up with new ideas, and spending time on the internet finding cool stuff. 

Cool Glad I found you.

I'm glad you found me too. I add back everyone that adds me. So add me if you want a cool new friend. If you have a business, let me know about it and you might be able to help me. Or I might be able to help you, or forward you to someone that can. 

Where can I find out more about you?

On my website I blog, talk about my copywriting services, and keep in touch personally with people via my newsletter. Feel free to browse around my site and see if I write or share things you're interested in. If not, that's fine. It's important not to waste time as a courtesy. Life should be about doing the things that you want to do.

This is a little place by the pier that serves ice cream and coffee. It's actually one of the few, if not the only place, to get coffee while having a few of the water at 9 am.

Great coffee and friendly people. Just a heads up: the wifi connection is lacking. I came here to get work done but the wifi connection was too poor to connect to. The place wasn't crowded, either. I wish they had reliable wifi.

A good place but pricey. I guess that's to be expected given the area. I had a burger with a side of fruit.
