When you hire me you are really purchasing years of my experience and boundless enthusiasm for new projects.

This blog lives here so you can check me out; my writing, what I stand for, and what drives me. (That way you don’t need to stalk me on Facebook).

Therefore, be prepared to read a bit about good business communication practice, marketing tips, advice on starting a blog, information on how best to use a copywriter, but also how to connect with teenagers, the importance of great lipstick on a bad day, how to rock what you’ve got, and other musings on this messy, glorious ride we are on.

Grab a coffee.

Come read my stories.

This photo isn’t artfully blurry. It’s actually a real time shot taken on my iPhone by my son when he was 2 1/2. Guess what I’m doing. Yep, starting a blog.

Balance Is Overrated

  This blog was inspired by a presentation I was invited to give to the Motivating Mum's community on International Women's Day, 2017. I wanted to talk to you about balance ...because I think it’s balderdash And while maybe, yes, saying it’s a conspiracy to keep us...

I’m Not Sure I’m A Mumpreneur

  Not a mompreneur either. Not a blondepreneur, or femmepreneur, or even a bedpreneur. In fact, I’m not even an entrepreneur, in the pure sense of the term. But I am a business owner. A creative in business. And a mother. (And a wife, a Musical Theatre nut, a Caesar...

Are You A Dodgy Wife? I Thought I Was Too

In my spare time (ha!) I stalk the Duggars and read blogs of polygamist Mormon women. ... I know. (If you've never binge-watched Big Love while considering which of your girlfriends you could bear to live with, you're missing out!) OK, it's partly because they...

Position Yourself As The Main Event, Not One Of The Chorus Line

So, I think at this point of the day we should play a drinking game. Stick with me here. Let’s all go to a random website. Ohhhh now, how about we try our own? And every time we read something like this: Hi, I’m Lucy/Willow/Betsy I’m a passionate yoga teacher/dog...

Don’t Give Up Your Day Job… Yet

  Let me say this up front: I’m calling BS on a lot of those “I quit my job and within 6 months I’m making 7 figures a fortnight” stories. Who ARE those women? Some kind of entrepreneurial bandits? And what kind of message are they perpetuating? That if we only TRIED...

Why I Can’t Meet You For a Quick Business Coffee

  I am roaring through my inbox (still haven’t taken the time to set up the email filters like my business coach has taught me to), trying to maximise my writing time while handling incoming emails, upgrading my proposal document, and carefully scheduling every moment...

5 Tips on Public Speaking for Scaredy Cats

When I originally launched Crisp Copy, I couldn’t imagine public speaking would become part of my business journey. The idea of speaking publicly, either in front of real, live humans or on the air, made my heart palpitate and mind race. And here’s the odd thing: with...

Resourcing and Outsourcing

Disconnect to Reconnect

It’s 47 degrees in the shade and I’ve been awake since 5am fishing with my unexpectedly angling obsessed daughter. I’ve also taken my three-year-old swimming twice, all the while allaying his fears that Santa won’t find us in the ‘holiday caravan’, and had an in-depth...

How Not To Use Your Facebook Friends for Networking

I was surprised when I started my business how many people just LOVED me at networking events. I mean, I’d go to these things, meet someone for less than ten minutes, swap cards and voila! They wanted to be my friend on Facebook. I must be likeable, right? It took me...

Why Get Social In Business?

  I often indulge in a little internal chuckle when I get a message or phone call that begins with “I stumbled across your business page in my Facebook feed...” Nope, you didn’t stumble. This was no accident. I put myself there. Right in your path. I often hear...

Business Networking for Introverts

There’s a couple of women doing business in Perth. And man, are they doing business. I follow them on social media and I’ve met them a couple of times at various events. They’re super smart, funny, exciting women with great business concepts and just being near them...

Who Did You Plan On Being?

I am a content writer, editor, social media savvy communicator, super mother and Hills enthusiast, but, when I was small, I wanted to be a lawyer, a musical theatre star and an internationally based roller skating waitress. Preferably all at once. As young people, we...

Girl Boss – What Small Business Ownership Teaches My Daughter

  When my 12-year-old daughter informed me of her life plan, all the ugly parts of my parenting came to the surface. Her (current) ideal includes buying a farm, rescuing donkeys, baking scones every day and bearing a whole tribe of babies whom she plans to homeschool....

A Blog About A Bikini, and, well, Love

  Before I began Crisp Crow Communications, I wrote an anonymous blog for a year. I didn't tell anyone I was publishing, I just wanted to gauge if people would even read what I wrote, and if they'd like it. This blog piece had an outstanding response. I guess it...

Storytelling – Both Glorious and Dangerous

  I love storytelling. My business is built on stories and my capacity to weave a likeable tale around a concept. The spiralling, uplifting dance of adventure draws me in and takes me travelling. I’m such a willing co-pilot in the shotgun seat. Beginning a business...

Vulnerability in Business (Go #teamcrispycrow)

Starting a blog?

Professional Copywriting skills, combined with natural empathy, means I step into your voice delivering powerful content that sounds like you.

Blogging is a powerful sales tool that is essential for all successful websites. However, it sometimes lives right at the bottom of our To Do lists. Why? Because once we were told we weren’t a good enough writer, or because we’d rather scrub the shower with a toothbrush. Why not stop beating yourself up about it and outsource to someone who adores it?

(Ahh, that’s me.)
I take the responsibility of regular blogging away so you can breathe out.
I guest or ghost (write as you) blog for your business using my expertise and your voice on any subject you like.
I write wellness, business, marketing, real estate, solar energy, meditation, salon, store, beauty, parenting and medical.

You can purchase my blogs as a one off, or buy in blocks of ten, have them delivered once a month and upload all at once, and get a mani/pedi.

Yep, really my name

If you’re here for the intuitive mix of done-for-you, make-you-cry copy or you want to learn all my secrets so you can DIY like a pro; sister, you’re in the right place. I’m a copywriter, editor, and copy consultant and coach for businesswomen ready to move away from the boring as bat poop churning out of content. Words that sound the same as everyone else’s. Bah humbug! I am terrible at writing my own blogs but smashing at writing for clients. I live in the Hills of Perth, WA, and work with women around the world through the technologically spiffy powers of t’internet. Yay for that!
