Clients from hell

Jazzy & educational site: https://clientsfromhell.net/

We all have horrid stories that made us find creative paths and shortcuts in a jiffy.
Nevertheless, with two notable exceptions, all my clients are from heaven.

Art by Arkadiusz Szymanek Malarstwo because heaven, where my clients come from, is a place of Mysteries and Imagination where I get all my shimmering ideas.

Owning yourself

“The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself.”
Friedrich Nietzsche

Art – Leonora Carrington

LOVE AFTER LOVE

LOVE AFTER LOVE

The time will come
when, with elation,
you will greet yourself arriving
at your own door, in your own mirror,
and each will smile at the other’s welcome,
and say, sit here. Eat.
You will love again the stranger who was your self.

Derek Walcott – the first Caribbean poet to win the Nobel Prize

Writing is a ladder

Writing is a ladder
But … Writing doesn’t come easy as “words are events, they do things, change things.”

Copywriting is the art of putting available dreams into people’s minds.

Write Simple for complicated people

At the copywriting course in English we start with the copywriting essentials. We don’t give you recipes, we just show you how to play with words in a storytelling stress-free environment. Then you write copy with a view to SEO tips and SEO techniques in English. Consequently, we walk you on the path of growth hacking strategies.

In epitomizing the concept of growth hacking I have borrowed Samuel Butler’s vanguard words: “When a man is in doubt about this or that in his writing, it will often guide him if he asks himself how it will tell a hundred years hence.”

In borrowing my words, I’d say that growth hacking strategies employ creativity as main fuel for developing a business.

Last but not least, we defer to you our long term goal: “Write your heart out and deliver your invincible story!”

I illustrate with an invicible story by Konstantin Korovin.

His heart

“His heart was like a sensitive plant, that opens for a moment in the sunshine, but curls up and shrinks into itself at the slightest touch of the finger, or the lightest breath of wind.”
– Quote from “The Tenant of Wildfell Hall,” by Anne Brontë, 1848

Edgar Allan Poe

“Here the vast bed of waters, seamed and scarred into a thousand conflicting channels, burst suddenly into phrensied convulsion-heaving, boiling, hissing-gyrating in gigantic and innumerable vortices, and all whirling and plunging on to the eastward with a rapidity which water never elsewhere assumes except in precipitous descents.”
Edgar Allan Poe, A Descent into the Maelstrom

How to tell a great story

How to tell a great story from Seth

“A great story is true. Not necessarily because it’s factual, but because it’s consistent and authentic. Consumers are too good at sniffing out inconsistencies for a marketer to get away with a story that’s just slapped on.”

Art by Boris Diodorov.
