Dominatrix + copy tips? Yes!

Becoming a badass in life and business requires you to stand in your power and be super comfy with being unique! This completely relates to copy.

So many times people ask, “What’s the best word to use here?" Or, "How can I improve my copy?”

These are fabulous questions and being committed to improving is the first step! But, no two people speak alike, so your copy shouldn’t sound like anyone else. It should sound like you.

But if you don’t feel confident to step up as you, purely, in your writing -- this is impossible and people will sense it.

You won’t attract all the right people that you could!

My guest Dana Pharant knows ALL about standing out and being unique.

Her personal brand of the Inner Dominatrix pushes people out of their comfort zone, challenges their preconceived notions, and has them stepping into a fierce determination to rock their Bold, Sexy Fun-Filled Lives!
