Ever seen the movie “Yes Man” starring Jim Carey?

In case you forgot what the plot is about…

Jim plays a scrooge of a man who spends all day just going through the motions.

Saying “no” to life, partying, or anything that might be more fun than watching butter melt.

Like 80% of the new copywriters I know and I’ll come back to that in a sec.

Jim was living a shell of a life.

Because he was a “No Man,” and only knew how to say no.

But after making a pact at a “cult-like” seminar to always say YES when he’s asked a question…

Jim finally begins to experience a fuller life as a “Yes Man”

He learns how to play the guitar, speaks Chinese, flies an airplane, gets a promotion, and more.

On top of that…

Jim even saves a jumper from committing suicide by singing “Jumper” by Third Eye Blind. Which is a totally epic feel-good moment!

You’re probably wondering what this is all about… yes?

The power of saying yes.

“Want to sign up for Carline Cole’s 1-year copywriting mentorship?” Yes.

“Care to donate $1 to St. Judes Children’s Hospital?” Yes.

“Would you mind passing the stuffing?” Yes…

But all jokes aside…

Say YES when opportunity knocks, because the difference between where are you and where you could be is one word apart.

Now get out there… and earn,
