I remember walking up to the ATM to pull out the last $20 I had in my bank account so I could go grab a bite to eat and have a few bucks until my next pay day.

After I put in my debit card and requested the $20 I needed to survive I was greeted with this heart-sinking message:

Not only did I not have $20 I was $-60 overdrawn…I needed to raise $60 just to be broke…

I vowed to myself that I would never be this broke again. I went on a quest to discover the key to always having money in my pocket.

The key to unlimited wealth is persuasion…

In order to properly persuade people you need to know how to tell a story. This story is going to be a part I of a series called Dark Persuasion Copy.

Chapter 1: Archetypes

An archetype is an ideal example or model after which other things are patterned. It is what is considered a typical example of a thing or person. In literature, there are situation archetypes, setting archetypes, symbolic archetypes and character archetypes.

Situation Archetypes
