About Me

I get it, trust is hard to build, especially online.

I will do my best to dispatch your doubts.

I was born and raised in Jerusalem, Israel. I've traveled to more than 30 countries around the world and lived in 3 different regions; the Middle East, Europe, and North America - in cities like Tel Aviv, Corpus Christi, Dallas, Las Vegas, and Paris. I'm versed in different cultures and how they think and I speak & write fluently in two languages (Hebrew and English).

I'm a former special forces senior Sergeant sniper, and sniper instructor.

At age 21, I commanded more than 200 soldiers. 
At 22, I was part of the close protection security circle for a high-profile governmental target: former Israeli State Comptroller Yossef Shapira. 

Due to these experiences, I possess exceptional decision-making and leadership abilities, capable of being a team player with unique social abilities.

As a sniper, I'm obsessed with precision. I never use two words when one will do. I translate that precision into words written for you, my client.
At 23, after moving to the US all on my own, with no job, friends, or family - the first few months were tough - but I finally landed a job doing sales in Las Vegas. One week in, I knew I was a natural. For the next 4 years, I got paid mainly in commission.

Due to this experience, I have developed the rare ability to be in the customer’s shoes at will, and possess the most important trait any copywriter can have - salesmanship. I have a solution to a problem before the client says it. Objection tackling.
 
In the background, while doing the sales gig, I invested in real estate. I meticulously researched the market and was sharp enough to notice market trends where I lived. I felt a spike was coming, and I was right. Renting & Flipping. Profits were bound to happen.
 
Due to this experience, I have mastered market research, financial literacy, financial discipline, auctioning, negotiations, acquisitions, and disposal.

Mr. Gildore, my RE agent at the time, is a whiskey lover. He loved the gift I got him for getting the price I wanted for the property.

At that point, I wanted to invest in myself. I attended law school, and after one semester--completing Criminal Law, I discovered traditional college wasn’t for me.

I was a bit lost, but I knew sales enablement fascinated me. I love branding.

So, I strategically formed 
partnerships with EWM Miami - publishing $8 million homes, with the English famous Rockefeller's Jewelers - publishing $1 million watches, and with athletes, artists, and entrepreneurs making 7 figures. 

In seven months, I turned an idea I had, from scratch, into a movement. I taught mental resilence, financial literacy, and sales. I was able to create a 300K followers movement, all organically.

 
While building my social media business, I took two Executive Education courses.
 
1) I'm a graduate of Intrapreneurship & Business Development through Strategic Innovation from TAU, which provides me with unique insights and perspectives into how new businesses can grow - and how stagnating businesses should innovate.  
 
2) I'm a graduate of PON from Harvard Law School, which helps me better sell, and communicate, both verbally and over text. 
 
When I decided to pursue copywriting, I was bought out. Today, I still produce content on Instagram. I write content on @thebusinesshacks for over 2 million followers.

To pursue copywriting, I first got my certification. 
 
Not all copywriters are certified. I am, (with distinction😎).

I possess a diploma from Blackfordand and a Level 4 certificate from the ABC Awards.


Naturally -- based on my interest and experience, I gravitated towards real estate becoming my niche.
 
Today, I wear two hats: content writer and copywriter, with my strengths being: 
 
  • Email copy
  • Website copy
  • Social media copy
  • And world-class content (SEO driven). (I'm the first result on Google for "real estate copywriter").
 
My copy and content are written with the client/reader as the hero; and with you, my client, as the guide, helping your audience reach THEIR goal - solving THEIR problem - moving them closer to desire/away from pain - while leaning into consumer psychology and behavioral economics.
 
I've written, consulted, and worked some big public brands, celebrities, and 9-figures startups in the space, like Matterport, Tarek El Moussa, Grant Cardone, and Sundae.
My cold email tactics were studied by Hunter i.o, and my influential copy techniques were featured on Wealth MagazinePsychology Today. My advice was shared on CNN Forbes, and SUCCESS® Magazineand my investing methods and expertise have been featured in some of the biggest publications in the space:

-Real Trends
-Bigger Pockets
-Sundae Investor Blog
-REALTOR® Magazine
-Florida Realtor Magazine.

Lastly, I have my own columns on ADWEEK, and Inc. Magazine - where I cover branding and messaging, sharing my expertise and talking to my network, friends, and mentors from Nike, Ogilvy, and Gong.
Why Should You Work With Me?
Results-Oriented
 
While money is always a factor (and those who say otherwise lie bluntly), I am more interested in getting you the results you desire. Why? 
  • Your income, time and trust are on the line. I take pride in providing value, creating more inbound leads & higher turnovers for my clients. Credibility is extremely important to me.
  • I value relationships more than money. If we finished a project and I didn’t help you to reach your goal, it will result in me losing a future project, a referral, and severely damage my reputation and networking abilities, possibly even losing a friendship with you.
 
Unmatched Precision
For a bullet to traverse 1.6 KM and hit its mark, you have to take altitude, wind, humidity, temperature, distance, angular momentum, gravity, and the spin of the earth into effect. I bring that same precision into my writing for you, as my client. Combine that with my OCD nature, you get uncompromising, unparalleled dedication to details.
 
Growth Driven
It’s not progress if you can’t measure it. And I am addicted to progress and growth. I either win, or I learn. I bring this attitude into the relationship I have with my clients. I encourage testing and pivoting. Constantly.
 
Business Acumen
In my 7 years as an Entrepreneur, I have amassed a lot of experience and field-tested tools.
  • 3.5 Years of high-performance sales in the retail medical field making 6 figures.
  • Managing several successful Real Estate projects in the Las Vegas area from opportunity to exit - leading to a high return on investment ranging from 7%-10% yearly.
  • Social Media Marketing - Generating a reach of 1.5 Million relevant users creating consistent growth and revenue leading to a successful acquisition. (Instagram mainly).
 
Radical Honesty
While you are the client, and at the end of the day you have the final say, expect no rounded corners from me. When you bring me on board, you get my perspective, interpretation, and view on every topic we touch. I believe in full transparency for better communication which yields better results. It is OK to agree to disagree. But when working with me, you will always know where I stand, rather than having an individual nodding their head just to get paid.
 
Accessibility
I will reply via email to most concerns within 24 hours since you contacted me. Additionally, you are always in the loop. Updates about the project every 48-72 hours when needed.
