The Success Anatomy: Interview with client-acquisition coach Sean Ferres



Sean Ferres

Sean Ferres is a 22 years old client-acquisition coach for freelance copywriters and he has over a hundred students from all over the globe. 

Recently, I got the chance to interview Sean Ferres, and he had a lot of insightful messages to share.

Here’s our conversation: 


1. Can you tell me a bit about yourself?

I’m 22 y/o, born in Zimbabwe but living in Brisbane, Australia since I was 3.

I always knew since I was 5 years old that I would never work a normal job or live an average life consisting of the standard university > 9-5 > retire > die. Not surprisingly, not many people understood me or could relate to me growing up.

I got my start in entrepreneurship when I was 15 years old when I would buy candy from the grocery store after school, package it up into little bags and sell it to my classmates at school. I made $400 in a month and thought I was the richest kid in the world haha.

Since then I’ve started and failed at 5 different business – sports betting, dropshipping, online casino hacking (funny story), forex trading and network marketing (yuck) – before finally coming to my senses and hiring a coach, rather than trying to go at it alone. I had my first business success as a freelance email copywriter for online businesses.

After a lot of demand for my services, I transitioned into coaching/consulting over a year ago and have been doing that ever since. Today, I’m a client-acquisition coach for freelance copywriters, helping them get their first few high paying clients and sprint to $10k/mo within 3-6 months. I have over a hundred students from all over the globe and I absolutely love what I do. Helping budding freelancers fulfil their dreams and leave their jobs in the dust is a high for me that no drug can match lol.

I’m also a DJ and dance music producer. I love EDM/ dance music and I’ve been producing for 3 years now. My goal is to be doing that full time, eventually playing all the biggest stages in the world – Ultra, Tomorrowland, etc. I’ve had a couple of record label deals and over a million Spotify streams and am finally starting to make solid progress with my music career as well.


2. Can you tell me a little about your achievements?

Multi 6 figure business, Six 6 figure students, dozens of 5 figure freelancer students, bought my dream car, accumulated over a million Spotify streams, 2 record label deals and visited 35+ countries all by the age of 22. Now I’m just bragging XD


3. What inspired you to become a client-acquisition coach for copywriters?

Mainly because it’s something I seemed to be naturally quite good at but something a lot of people struggled with, so I started doing some coaching on the side and after a couple of months, there was so much demand for my services that I decided to make it a full-time business.


4. What values and principles have helped you come this far?

Mastery, kaizen, a strong work ethic and an insatiable appetite for knowledge and to be the best version of myself humanly possible.

In addition to that, mentorship has been huge for me, I wouldn’t be anywhere today without the help and guidance of my mentors over the past couple of years. I paid money I didn’t have to work with a coach when I was first starting out. Left with $29 to my name, I worked my ass off, following everything he said to do and within 30 days I went from 0 to making $17k/mo.

Nearly every single time I’ve hired a coach or consultant, the ROI has been 10-100x my investment. You just have to make sure to choose the right coaches!


5. What are some of the challenges you’ve seen copywriters face in the process of getting clients?

  • Not knowing where to look for clients
  • Not knowing how to reach out in a way that elicits a positive response
  • Not knowing how to get potential clients on the phone
  • Not knowing how to close the deal on the phone
  • Uncertainty on their offer, niche or service
  • Not confident in their ability to deliver results for clients
  • Dealing with rejection and getting ignored


6. What words of advice would you like to share with copywriters out there hoping to get their next big client?

Join my program lol.

But other than that, my formula for success is extremely simple:

  1. Find a coach who has the results you want (and who’s students have the results you want). Pay whatever you can to work with them. Sell your kidney if you have to.
  2. Work like a dog, ruthlessly implementing everything they tell you to do. Don’t try and get fancy by tweaking things and trying to put your own spin on it. Just do exactly what they tell you to do.

Provided you picked the right person, it’s literally impossible to fail with this model. 



7. What are your hobbies

When I’m not working on my business or producing music (which is rare), I enjoy traveling the world, racing fast cars, tennis, and skiing.


8. What is your favorite quote in the world and why?

These words from Elliott Hulse (who I also made a song with that you can listen to here) really resonated with me:

The most stable thing that a man can do is to listen to his heart and to follow it because it always leads to what is pleasing in the end. The fastest, band-aid ripped off remedy is to do the thing you’re afraid to do. It may be difficult in the beginning, it may be difficult for years, but you will die, on your deathbed, feeling a strong sense of integrity, and loyalty to your heart. You can’t buy that. You grow stronger not for yourself in this mere moment you spend on earth, you grow stronger for your legacy, and for those who might not never know your name. Because they need you, and we need you. Keep Going. As dark as it gets, keep going, as difficult as it gets, as much as it seems as if the world is crumbling down around you and there is no way out, Keep. Fucking. Going.

Nothing motivates me more than thinking about death and how truly limited our time on this planet is. You can either spend your life living out your dreams or helping someone else to build theirs. On that note, I’ve gotta go make some big shit happen!
