contact and decided the requisite 60 to 80 hours a week in the lab

Will Newman says. 'But most important, I've been blessed to have known
a wide range of people of all ethnic, social, and racial backgrounds

customers, I feel I know them personally because I have met them in
my day to day life. I've worked and played with them, and I know how
they think and what motivates them to buy."
addition to writing, Will also coaches and critiques copywriting students.
