Things just got real

Welcome to my little corner of the internet – I’m so pleased you’re here!

Since falling pregnant with my first child in 2008, and putting my corporate communications career on hold, I’ve been slowly (but steadily) building my own copywriting and editing business. I feel so fortunate to be able to stay at home with my two kids and I’ve purposely taken things pretty easy on the work front, picking up work mostly through friends or word of mouth referrals.

To be honest, I didn’t even start out to have my own business. I enjoyed writing, it was a great way to make some extra income and the work just seemed to keep coming my way. I’d always imagined going back to the office after babies but being able to work at my own pace, in the comfort of my daggiest trackies, on projects I enjoyed, well it was just too perfect.

Then my gorgeous friend Tam from Genki Design created this lovely website for me, and well, it kinda cemented the deal!

I love working with small business owners to help them communicate their ideas and hone their brand personality so they can get on with growing their business, have more fun, and make more money.

My clients are clever, they know what they want and how to get it, but their first passion is usually NOT writing. Sometimes they just need a little help finessing the message, while other times they need me to start a project from scratch. I love collaborating with these amazing business owners, being at home working on my own can get lonely so I always jump at the chance to get onto Skype for a chat and a laugh.

My clients also know that their relationship with their customers is not just about the money. They know it takes time to build trust, credibility and influence. My clients are awesome.

Aaaand just because you’re still reading, here are a few more fun facts about me….
