A former colleague of mine recently created Sourced — an agency that provides business services and assistants to support you in all aspects of your life. Not just your traditional work needs (bookkeeping, temp work, etc.) but errands, party planning and day-to-day tasks. Brilliant idea. Especially for business owners who have to do everything.
If you’re in Atlanta, you should check them out. She’s got a top-notch staff.
Not that she needs the assistants (pun intended), but I threw a few lines together for her. 103, actually.

Overall: Pretty good
Lessons: I like that I was able to write this for someone. It wasn’t just an imaginary persona. Much more motivation that way. The lines came easy and I tried to position myself in the head of a small business owner. I used the template sporadically, but the better lines IMO) came from my head. It helped to have the foundation from formulas to get me started.
I’ll let my friend decide, but I think there are some decent lines here. I’d love to hear what you guys thinks.
Time: About 70 lines came in one 45-minute session. The rest came sporadically over the next few hours.
