What to do when you get frustrated w/ your copywriter’s writing abilities? It’s a small company & they didn’t go to school for writing & make big grammar mistakes that they often won’t let me correct.

What I’ve done in the past, just fix it yourself and present.

Relatable. No one sees the Word doc in which the copy is sent, just layouts in which the copy appears. So the designer looks like the one who either made, or didn’t catch the grammar mistake. At the same time, copy editing is not in my job description, so I’m often inclined to just stay in my lane. It’s a dumb situation.

Yeah small company so technically all of the above

But how are their concepts? Proofreaders will fix grammar.

Hey everyone! I’m getting my follicles measured for my first IUI this coming Monday- as I’m reading through all the posts it appears that the washed sperm count needs to be above 5M? I’m 37, my husband is 34- I’m starting to get really nervous about this working. My husband is not wanting to incur the cost of IVF even though a big chunk is covered my insurance, nor is he a fan of trying any of this all together. Anyone have advice on how to get your husband on the same page? Thanks!
