Shawn’s Question or Topic
Shawn created a Twitter account way back in 2013 where he posts rhymes and was able to build his social numbers up pretty good. Recently, he bought a laser engraver and has been giving out laser wood engraved art to his followers for free. Now, Shawn wants to know when he should be asking for money for those masterpieces.
Gary’s Story and Advices
Now is the best answer since he has been giving out his work at no cost for a long time already. He has been jabbing a lot by giving free products so now is the time to put a hook on it.
Gary found it funny when he wrote the Jab, Jab, Jab, Right Hook because he thought that he was writing it for people that were spamming and selling the whole time. He wanted to teach them the jabbing, the romancing, or the bringing value. But what ended up happening is that the feedback he received was from a lot of people that are sweet and awesome like Shawn, who was struggling with the ask.
