I'm thrilled that Pat was the winner of the $10K Challenge. When I first met Pat two years ago, she had just decided to become a professional freelance copywriter. She worked hard on mastering her copywriting skills, and that hard work paid off. Winning the $10K Challenge proves that she's made it.
Delray Beach, FL (PRWEB) December 25, 2008
American Writers & Artists Inc. (AWAI), http://www.awaionline.com, publisher of direct-response copywriting and graphic design home-study programs, today officially announced AWAI Member and Copywriter, Pat McCord, from Tucson, AZ, as the 2008 "$10K Challenge" winner.
Each year, AWAI Members have the opportunity to submit for consideration promotional copy they've written about the company's products. AWAI then selects a number of submissions for market testing. The writer whose sales letter performs the best is guaranteed $10,000 worth of future writing assignments with AWAI.
This year's winning sales copy promoted AWAI's FastTrack to Copywriting Success Bootcamp - the company's annual live training event for aspiring and professional copywriters.
Pat remarked, "I was actually caught off-guard, but what a fun surprise! 'Work worth doing' has always been important to me, but equally important was finding a livelihood that would allow me to live the life I want. I have to say with copywriting, I've found both - I'm helping people sell their ideas or their products, and I do it in my own office on my own schedule. I think this is an exciting time in America, in spite of our economic troubles, because so many of us have figured out that we don't need 'jobs' in the usual sense. We can create our own careers and be our own bosses. That's the most freeing concept I can imagine. Winning AWAI's $10K Challenge was a signal to me that I'm on the right track."
Katie Yeakle, AWAI's Executive Director, couldn't agree more. Katie added, "There's never been a better time to take control of your life and your career. AWAI is all about helping people gain financially viable skills that will allow them to fulfill their dreams. Pat is a perfect example of that will and determination."
Rebecca Matter, AWAI's Vice President and Marketing Director, said, "I'm thrilled that Pat was the winner of the $10K Challenge. When I first met Pat two years ago, she had just decided to become a professional freelance copywriter. She worked hard on mastering her copywriting skills, and that hard work paid off. Winning the $10K Challenge proves that she's made it."
