Something that is often a learning curve for coaching clients – you have to say it again.  Saying something once is often not enough.  Whether you’re selling a product, showing a key message or defining your difference, the chances are your audience will miss it the first time. Not all of them, but most of […]

Firstly let me begin by making it clear – impressivity isn’t a word.  It’s a feralism, something I’ve created to make a point (plus it sounds really cool next to authenticity). But the faux word impressivity does get across what I’m trying to say.  Sometimes small brands use big words to appear a bit fancier […]

What exactly is “enoughness?”  It’s literally the feeling of being enough (it is to me anyway).  I work with so many female entrepreneurs in my coaching sessions and time again the same topics come up.  This is one of the main culprits.  So when someone asked me about how to overcome imposter syndrome this week […]

For those who may not know, the latest story in the media is about a social star named Clemmie Hooper, or as you might know her, Mother of Daughters.  Long story short (from what I can piece together) Clemmie (who is a successful Instagrammer with 672k followers, acclaimed midwife and author) set up a false […]

If you are looking to do a copywriting course that isn’t just about copywriting-by-numbers but asks questions and inspires writing that reflects your brand then look no further.  I created Audacity because I felt there was a calling for a course that conveys the essence of you, that is authentic and really resonates with your […]

Your money or your meaning?

I never imagined I would create a course. The reason for this is because my work is so bespoke. It’s so built around the brand or the person in question that I couldn’t ever imagine putting together something that would offer a one-size-fits-all solution.
