Get a journalist to help you write your business story
Use it for your bio, your ‘About Us’ page, as a media release or just for the hell of it!
When you see your story in writing you’ll be saying FIGJAM* to yourself!
*F**k I’m Great, Just Ask Me!
Almost every time, when I first speak with business women, they rarely think that they have an interesting story to tell. And if someone asks them for their bio (biography), they either don’t have one or it looks more like a resume than a story. So I decided to help all you clever, adventurous, beautiful, interesting women really tell your story, with the help of a journalist.
So how does it work?
Journalists are trained at getting the best story out of everyone they write about. They know how to include the good bits, and they can tell you which aspects of your life are irrelevant when it comes to painting the picture that you want.
We have two options:
1. Write it with a journalist but you provide the bare bones document after a chat on the phone, and they will edit it
2. You chat to them on the phone and they will write the whole thing for you
You get to choose one of these gorgeous, highly skilled, warm and friendly journalists to write your story for you.
Once you choose and pay, we will get you to fill out a quick form with your details for the journalist and when you upload it we will send each of you an email to connect within the following 24 hours.
You choose a good time for both of you to chat (up to an hour), and then it depends what you have chosen as to what happens next:
1. If you are writing it yourself, you go off and write your story, using all the good bits that were suggested to you. You email it to the journalist, she edits it and sends it back. Voila!
2. If the journalist is writing it for you then she will get in touch when she has finished and you can make one set of changes if you need to.
Either way, when they are finished you will have a polished bio you can use anywhere you like!
