Writer jobs come easy with the right training!

So I was standing in line with a friend yesterday at our local Starbucks, waiting for our daily injection of caffeine as usual. As many of us out there hate to admit, the daily dose of coffee has become a tradition of the American workforce’s day. So we’re standing there and as normal the place is buzzing and there is the same gentleman that I usually see. He’s about my age and is usually dressed comfortably well. I see him every morning and on some afternoons, leisurely typing away on his slick new laptop. In the past, every once in a while we catch glances politely nod and I head off to work.

But finally today as we were both standing and waiting for the barista to make our lattes, I worked up the nerve to ask him what he does for a living. He said, “You know, one of those writer jobs”. I didn’t know. I honestly had no idea. So I pressed further. He said in particular he made quite a good living using the local Starbucks as his office by being a paid copywriter. If I could make a good living in sweatpants at my local Starbucks then I was interested.

He said that I could find out much more online about it and there are many other writer resources out there to find out info, but he told me he got his start with a company called AWAI. I checked them out and they look great. I’m hoping that within 60 days I’ll be sitting next to my new friend at Starbucks wearing sweatpants of my own.
