Don’t Let Poor Writing Skills Hold You Back


Headline after headline proclaims the sad news–writing skills are deteriorating.

Blame the texting. Blame social media. Blame the schools. Blame whoever or whatever you want–it doesn’t really matter. The facts are the same.

The sad truth is that if you can’t write well you’ll have fewer opportunities in life. Communication skills are key to success.

Despite the rapidly changing technological environment that we live in, writing is still the basis of most business transactions. If you’re in business, having poor writing skills is more than just an inconvenience. It could actually cost you money or even your job.

Even if you’re a professional writer, chances are your writing skills could use some improvement.

Of course, you could enroll in a college course to improve your writing skills. You’d pay big bucks and it would take you a semester.

Taking a college course to improve your writing skills just might work. That is, it might work if your instructor had some actual business experience outside the academic world (many of them don’t) and knows how to write in a conversational business style.

Keep in mind that your college instructor would likely be working with twenty to thirty other students at the same time. It’s possible they wouldn’t be able to spend much time providing you with feedback.

Fortunately, there’s an easier way!

I’ve just launched a unique coaching program designed especially for business professionals and professional writers. The program lasts a month and gives you the chance to learn what you need to know about good writing.

You’ll learn how to write effectively for today’s businesses from someone who actually does it for a living. Best of all, your program will be personalized for you because I’m only accepting three participants each month.

Space is limited, so be sure to sign up now!

You don’t want to let bad writing skills hold you back, do you?
