Why Sharon is the one you want to learn from


Sharon Ernst

Sharon spent 20 years working as a freelance copywriter before starting to help people be better, faster writers at work. She takes her two decades of experience in writing persuasive copy (as quickly as possible) and applies those techniques to everyday business and marketing writing, so her students learn to not only write better and faster, but more persuasively too. The result? Her students transform their writing at work from a chore to a cinch as they make their writing their superpower!
