The beautiful Bolivian Salt Flats
Today I just wanted to show you something really beautiful. If this doesn’t inspire you, I don’t know what will...
Look at that! I am at the Salar de Uyuni Salt Flats in Bolivia and it is one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever been.

So you need a website and you’re wondering if you can do your own copywriting. I’m a professional copywriter and I’d love to give you my opinion on whether you can and why I feel that way. Let’s find out…keep reading or watch below.
So, can you write your own web copy? Short answer, yes you can! You bet your butt you can. You want to know why? Because no one can understand or knows your business like you do. No one knows and understands your brand like you do. You are your business. You are your brand, and therefore you have all of the information that you need to make this happen.
Of course, there’s some provisos…
First thing that you really need to be aware of, good writing requires practice so don’t be horrified if it takes you a couple of shots or if you need someone to help you edit and if you need to rewrite it a couple of times. That’s part of the game.
Clarity. Confuse people and you lose people. Being cute and clever is fun, but if people don’t know what you mean you’re not going to get yourself any clients. So err on the side of “just make sense”. Help people understand what it is you do.
And third, there are a lot of different elements that go into copywriting that actually win clients. I have something called the BRIDGE Approach™, which is my trademarked process for writing phenomenal copy. If you take a look at my website you’ll see what the different elements are and I’ll record videos about these in the future, but consider taking a look to find out now.
So there you go, that’s the short answer. I believe you can write your own copy, but, if you do want help, if you want a pro who’s gonna give you some more confidence that you’re actually going to attract your dream clients and connect with people that you really want to serve, then reach out to me. I do free connection calls. Let’s talk about my process, let’s see if we’re a good fit and let’s take it from there.
Today I’m recording this video from Ollagüe, an active volcano in Bolivia. And by active, it has been several thousand years, but that's still pretty cool. Ahhh...This is the life of a digital nomad!
Until next week, we’ll talk to you then.

Whoops! Do you ever just feel a bit off center? In this video I’d like to talk about something that I use to help center myself. Read on or check out the video below for some great advice…
So this might sound a little bit hippy, because it is, but when I’m feeling kind of weird and off-center, I like to ask myself what I need. And when I say “ask myself” I mean, ask my body, my inner intuitive self, that other part of me that knows best what it needs.
I find that I often get an answer when I Just ask the question. So when I say “what do you need?”, somewhere deep inside of me often says “you need some water. You need some exercise. You need sleep. You need to meditate. You need some yoga. You need some time with friends.” So I would like to suggest that you go ahead and give it a try and see if it works for you.
I’m filming this video from Salar de Uyuni in Bolivia which is absolutely stunning! This is an island behind me in the salt flats.

This is the last video in the series that I’ve been recording on the challenges of being a digital nomad and today we’re looking at the solutions to balancing work and life when you’re living on the road. Check out my tips by watching this video or reading below.
I’m filming this video from the unbelievably neat
Lake Titicaca on a floating island.
Today I’ve got 5 tips I’d like to share about finding a work-life balance:
#1 - The first is a mindset shift. Because when you are a digital nomad and you’re working, it’s not a vacation. Even though it feels like it is. Once upon a time being on the road like this meant it was a vacation but you now have to balance seeing all the cool stuff with doing your work and living your life. So how do you do that? I would say that planning is going to be your friend.
#2 - Decide what your work hours are and try to stick to them.
#3 - Decide how many hours you need to work to get done what you need to get done.
#4 - Plan out what you’d like to see in the places you’re visiting so that you don’t feel like you’re missing out.
#5 - One of the most important things though is a mindset shift. It’s ok to not see everything. When you’re living in your home base for example, you’re not upset by not getting to every restaurant in the city or seeing every attraction that exists. You are used to the idea that you’re going to miss something and you need to be okay with that as well when you’re on the road.
That’s it for this week!
