Trying to master a new skill can be overwhelming. When I started copywriting, it felt like stepping into a vast library. There was an endless amount of material to learn from.
As a devoted bookworm, I eagerly opened the pages of every resource available.
I completed courses, listened to podcasts, and joined masterclasses. I believed that learning from industry leaders would guarantee my success.
My bookshelf kept growing.
But my client list didn't.
I was so obsessed with trying to read everything that I forgot to put my knowledge to use.
Then, I realized that the theory was just the beginning of the story. I needed some real-world experience to hone my skills.
The good thing was that the expertise I gained in my reading nook paid off. It gave me the knowledge to excel in my craft—once I finally put it to practice.
