  1. Hey Sonia,

    Thanks for telling us About Joanna. What an interesting person! I was scooping around and found this post.

    Personally I believe in creativity. It’s what drives me to do what I do along with passion. It’s what gives me ideas, makes me see what others aren’t doing or what they’re doing but not doing well that I can improve on.

    That line “I got really annoyed by the fact that I’d wasted 13 years not being creative because people said to me, ‘You can’t make a living out of this.” Yeah right? Heard tons of it especially from My father. But I haven’t given up yet until I make something out of it.

    Thanks for having her here.. I’ll head over to Rainmaker.fm to consume the rest of the interview.

    -Babs.

    • A lot of times, that creative spark is what gives a project (business, side hustle, etc.) that winning difference that makes it succeed.

      I love folks like Joanna who spread the word that creativity is a vital component of smart business.

  2. I would have loved to attend the event…. Although it’s too late for that how about the link to the event.. Can that be available???

  3. So, I absolutely love your website. I try and read as many posts as I can and subscribe to your email marketing and click through on all of your emails. Your content is spot on and completely relevant and useful (I’m slowly working on implementing your techniques now).

    But, when I don’t have time to read a post, I pin it onto a board where I keep articles for later reading (or even when it’s a post I’ve read and love the content). I’m surprised that your blog images are not optimized with descriptions for Pinterest. I always have to copy and paste the article title under the image before pinning and add “CopyBlogger? so I know it’s one of your posts. For example, this article’s image just says “penn? underneath the pinnable image…just a thought. Thanks so much for your efforts. I can’t say enough how useful your content is.

    • Saeed, thanks for the kind words! We are not able to duplicate the problem you’re having with Pinterest images: they come up with the full post title for us.

      We’ll let our Support team know and they’ll watch to see if this continues to be an issue. Thanks for letting us know.

  4. “I got really annoyed by the fact that I’d wasted 13 years not being creative because people said to me, ‘You can’t make a living out of this.’?

    This is why doing what you love and having a genuine passion for it, is so important for running a business!

    Of course, you can take advice, but you can’t let people stop you from fufilling you dreams/goals.

    I’m so glad that Joanna has put her creativity into action, while making a living!

    Truly inspirational. 🙂

  5. Thanks so much for the article on Joanna, Sonia! It came at the perfect time. I’m currently rethinking my own writing business and launching a new (and hopefully, improved) marketing blitz. I have to confess that I, too, have fallen into the trap of thinking, “you can’t make a living at this,” when the real problem was I just wasn’t approaching my writing as a business. Too bad I will miss her presentation — would love to hear more of Joanna’s ideas.

  6. Thanks for introducing this amazing lady! She serves as an inspiration for all of us who are afraid of doing what they love.

  7. I’m a copywriter, a content manager and I try to write fiction in my free time. So, you can make a living from writing, if you work really hard.
