A Little Biz

Psst, c’mere, I wanna talk to ya…” (“Down In Hollywood”, Ry Cooder)


Listen. I’m just doing a drive-by blog tonight.

We’ve simply got so much going on this week, that I’ve got to keep my nose to the grindstone. Get some sleep, stay frosty, corral some deals that are currently roaming out there in the ether.

So I just want to touch base here, and make sure you’re in the loop on some of this.

First Loop Thing: I have been on the phone these past two days with a “Who’s Who” of online marketing.

Check out this line up — Rich Schefren, Perry Marshall, Andy Jenkins, Jeff Walker, Brian Clark, Tellman Knudsen…

… and guess what?

Every one of them has agreed to participate in this mysterious little business adventure Stan and I are cooking up, as we speak. (You’ll get advance notice in less than 2 weeks, if you watch the blog.)

Things get a bit giddy when the talent pool goes high-end like this.

And no, I’m not gonna reveal what’s up… yet.

But I will tell you this: For a few smart business owners, an opportunity is about to arrive that will give you exclusive personal access to these experts…

… with me as a referee. And, probably, ring leader, too.

It’s gonna be something special.

You’ll be thrilling the grandkids with this story for a long time.

What you can do now… is to make sure you’re on the blog notification list (top right of this page).

So you will get early warning of anything cool and worthwhile happening.

Second Loop Thing: I want to remind you that my much-revered Freelance Course is available again.

After a hiatus of over a year.

If you want to juice-up your current freelance efforts with some serious professional mojo…

… or if the lifestyle of a pro freelance writer (the money! the fame! the adventure!) has always appealed to you…

… then you must see what all the fuss is about here:


No obligation when you hop over and see what’s up on this site.

However, be aware that I’ve pulled the course from circulation before (for over a year last time)… and will do so again if the coaching thing gets too crowded with copywriters.

So, yeah, you probably do want to get over there right away, and check ‘er out.


… I want to thank Kevin Rogers, again, for handling the first “guest post” on this blog so well. It was a blast trading barbs and jokes with other writers in the comments section.


… I want to thank, again, all the folks who chimed in with thoughts, advice, and insight to how we are presenting the Freelance Course. It was very helpful.

I’m always open to opinion and suggestions.

And I am constantly impressed — and stricken with gratitude — when I witness just how smart and hip the audience for this little blog is.

Really, guys. Thanks for putting up with me, and thanks for staying involved through your comments, emails, and all the other ways you make my job so damned enjoyable. (Note to the person down in Vegas last month, who recognized me walking by and wanted a handshake and quick photo. Glad to oblige. Mike Koenigs took the photo, but we lost the biz card you gave us! So we can’t mail the photo to you. If you’re reading, we need your address. One nice photo of you and me in the Wynn is waiting…)

And if there’s anything — anything at all — you’d like to see discussed or addressed in this blog, just say so.

Good time to do that would be… oh, now.


Stay frosty,

John Carlton
