About DFW

Damn Fine Words isn’t just an online writing course; it’s a legacy. You know… that ONE thing you really want to do, the ONE thing you really care about, the ONE thing you create that makes a difference in the world.

Damn Fine Words is one of the best online writing courses you’ll ever see. It’s for small business owners, large business owners, entrepreneurs, freelancers, corporate staff, bloggers, in-house writers… in short, this writing course is for people like you who want to learn better, more effective writing skills so your business can generate tangible, bottom-line results.

It took a full year to create the flagship DFW course, and that year included putting a great deal of thought into each lesson: what you should learn, what would be practically and immediately useful to your goals, and what the course should help you achieve. The course is continually improving and expanding, with new modules and post-graduate courses in constant creation. Consider it a writing university in the making.

It’s no small wonder James is so respected in the business world – she rose through the ranks to become a leading copywriter, problogger, business expert, published author, and renowned entrepreneur with a solid reputation for dedication, loyalty, and respect for those who ask of her help. She’s built not just one but two world-recognized businesses from absolute scratch, has a major blog with 40,000+ readers and offers several writing courses that teach business owners valuable lifetime skills.

You can also find James in person across the entire web; she gives frequent interviews and writes regularly for well-known major sites like Copyblogger.com.

Trivia facts:

If you want to get into James’ good favor, she’s is partial to strong coffee and fine Shiraz – not at the same time, of course. She loves the color blue, ice skating, and Nike sneakers in vivid colors. She has a significant other who cooks a mean steak, loves ice-skating as much as she does, and helps her raise her two wonderful daughters, without whom this amazing adventure would never have begun.

She provides ongoing consultation and teaching support to Damn Fine Words, and her skills and knowledge make sure this entire course (and every subsequent course that follows) provides university-level education and training in the best learning environment possible.

Trivia facts:

Ainslie loves Irish castles, traveling the world and drinking Coca Cola (leaded, not diet). She has a lovely husband willing to trade off parenting a spirited daughter for cooking delicious meals, she grins wickedly in the face of challenge, and – much to James’ dismay – hates red wine and fears ice-skating with a passion.
