A Day in the Life Of A Copywriter
So, to kick off this series, we are looking at a day in the life of a copywriter with freelancer and LFA alumna Amber Kindler.

A Day in the Life of a Copywriter:
Amber first shares that her 2-year-old, Judd, goes to grandma’s house for two days a week for daycare so she can do client work.
Kicking off the day
Amber feeds her 4-and-a-half-month-old, Joanna, around 5:30 AM and puts her back to bed. While baby Joanna sleeps, Amber gets a good chunk of work in.
After a few hours, baby Joanna is up for the day. After feeding, Joanna plays while Amber gets another chunk of work in.
Today, Amber is working on a blog post for a client. Then Amber preps for a client meeting while eating lunch.
She shows us how she works, usually from the floor next to baby Joanna while she’s playing.
After lunch, Amber has a call with her client. Then Joanna goes down for an afternoon nap for a couple of hours. So Amber squeezes in a quick workout but is stopped for baby snuggles halfway through.
Shortly after, big brother Judd comes home from daycare at grandma’s house. When he gets home, Amber puts Curious George on the T.V. Then sets baby sister up at her play table so she can start dinner.

Services of a Copywriter and Director of Marketing
At the beginning of her business, Ambers’s ideal clients were Teachers Pay Teachers sellers because she was a teacher so she really connected with them. While those are still ideal clients, Amber really likes working with any female business owner who is making an impact.
Right now, she has 2 clients that are Teachers Pay Teachers sellers. And another client that is an agency.
Amber says the agency client is her favorite because she gets to work on new projects every day. It’s a new client, a style of writing, and a project that she does every day which keeps her on her toes.
Amber’s last client is a painting company that she connected with through LFA, and helps with copywriting for the website.
