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.

Watch the full video here!


A day in the life of a copywriter:

Waking up

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.


Afternoon nap

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.

Dinner time

While making dinner, she usually listens to the Live Free Podcast to do a little professional development!


Wrapping up the day

After dinner, she cleans up the dishes, starts bath time and bedtime, and wraps up the day.
