My friend Laney likes to say she’s not the expert, she’s the experiment.
I love that because the same applies to me. It’s taken me years to figure out how to live a life less frantic, but I still stuff up and find myself stressed out and over-committed every so often. The good thing is, it takes me less time to pull back and adjust when I push things too far these days.
But I never stop learning and that’s what this blog is about – the things I’ve learned that might be useful to those who quite like being busy, but also crave a simpler life (I believe the two CAN co-exist!).
Want to come along for the ride?!
If you’re tired of being stressed out and over-committed, then sign up here for my weekly email. Each week I send out tips and ideas for living a more intentional life.
If you’re new to my blog and are wondering where to start, these posts below are some of my favourites:
- He said, she said – a love story
- Writing for free is the root of all evil
- You can’t beat PND with awesomeness (and other things I have since learned)
- The real reason you just can’t say no and how it’s ruining your life
- Even wobbly courage is courage
WORK WITH ME
When I meet someone for the first time and they ask ‘What do you do?’ I’m never sure what to say as the answer can be any one of: writer, designer, editor, business owner, blogger, speaker, health advocate … the list does go on!
If your question is ‘Can we work together?’ the answer is ‘Yes’. Here are some of the things I could do for you (my hourly rate is $110/hr):
WRITE FOR YOU
Blog posts, web copy, corporate communication, newsletter text, articles … if it needs to be both well-researched and engaging, I can write it for you. (Places you may have seen me: Mamamia, The Hoopla, Coping With Jane and Women in Focus as well as The Canberra Times and Marie Claire.)
EDIT FOR YOU
Sometimes I think I might be a better editor than writer. If you have a bit of copy that needs some tender loving care, you’re in luck. Making words sparkle is one of my favourite things to do in the whole world!
SPEAK FOR YOU
The things I am passionate about (and therefore love to speak about) are myriad but my favourite things to bang on about right now are:
- Blogging for business
- Effective blog and website design
- How saying ‘no’ can help you find your sweet spot in life
DESIGN FOR YOU
Whether it is flat sheet design (magazines, flyers, logos etc) or website/blog design (simple and complex) I can do it. Pricing wise, simple (template based) blog makeovers are in the range of $440-660, custom blog designs start around $3500 and all other design is at an hourly rate of $110/hr.
