Find Your Voice

 

Write creatively, grow your audience, sell stuff, be yourself

 

The 4-week online course for freelancers and small business owners

I bet writing rarely feels like a top priority for you

 

And when you finally sit down to craft your latest masterpiece, the process feels like rooting around for a five pound note in a swimming pool of hummus. Frustrating. Slow. The outcome? Disappointment on all fronts.

What you get in return is a collection of bland, lifeless sentences strung together out of necessity. Sure, you’ve thrown in a few industry buzzwords, but who are they really for?

I’m going to teach you an approach to writing which is a helluva lot more fun.

We’ll use relatable language (how about that hummus reference, eh?) and tap into your life experience so that words come effortlessly to you. The act of writing will become not just a skill…. but a pleasure.

Why your voice matters

 

Once you’ve found your groove with writing in your own voice, everything falls into place. Not only will you be able to write with purpose and efficiency, but you’ll enjoy the process.

With every piece of content you’ll uncover more about you and your business, and take your audience along for the ride.

When you show up truthfully on the page, your audience will respond.

Why? Because people buy when they feel emotionally connected.

This exploration of your past experiences, future mission and core values will only serve to deepen the connection between you and your audience, building a loyal fanbase who can’t help but support your business. They become your biggest cheerleaders.

Brilliant tips and I personally got so much out of it, it’s really going to change the way I write.

Finding my voice

 

When I first started freelancing I accepted any job opportunity that was sent my way. Soon, I found myself busy AF doing work that made me want to throw my laptop out the window.

But I’d built up a sweet-ass sticker collection on my laptop, and frankly, I wasn’t ready to give that up. I decided to inject my personality into my written content instead of writing the way I ‘thought’ business owners were supposed to.

I stopped following sales page formulas.

I stopped stuffing keywords into every blog post.

I stopped using clickbait in emails and Instagram posts.

The result? My dream clients came a-knocking (and my laptop lived to tell the tale, she’s a real trooper).

I found my voice and my people found me.

 

Every business owner has a unique voice and story to tell.

 

Let’s discover yours, attract your dream audience and build a business you love….

This course is for you if:

 

  • You’re overwhelmed with advice on how to create better content
  • You feel gross whenever you try to promote yourself online
  • You want to write fearlessly and enjoy the process
  • You want to consistently build a loyal audience over time
  • You want to create a brand voice without hiring a professional
  • You want to nail an upcoming launch in your business

This course isn’t for you if:

 

  • You don’t have a product or service to sell (or at least an idea of what that will be)
  • You don’t want to express yourself creatively
  • You don’t want to inject personality into your brand
  • You don’t have a Facebook account
  • You’re only interested in vanity metrics like increasing your follower count

Why I created this course

 

Creativity is an invaluable tool in my personal and professional life.

It gave me an outlet when I had a mental breakdown. It gave me hope during recovery. It lit a fire in my belly during relapse.

Being vulnerable with my words showed me that vulnerability brings out the best in all of us. It’s the great connector in business, but also in humanity as a whole.

I created this course because unlocking your voice is the golden ticket if you want to write copy that doesn’t reek of convoluted sales jargon.

I’m not gonna upload my CV for ya, but here are the highlights:

  • I’ve written for major publications including Refinery29, Grazia, Metro and Reader’s Digest
  • I’ve published two books off the back of my writing style and engaged audience
  • I get 99% of my clients on Instagram and my words attract people I’m excited to work with
  • I’m so busy that I turn down work with the people who don’t feel like a good fit

Frequently asked questions

Do I need to do the written exercises every week?

I know that running a business comes with unexpected ebs and flows, so it’s totally up to you how much time you put into the practical side of things. I’ll supply PDF documents so you’ll have those on-hand to come back to whenever you’re ready. VIP students will have the opportunity to hand in specific exercises at the end of the course as part of the extra mentoring session.

What if I can’t attend the live training?

No sweat! All live training sessions will be available on replay in the Facebook group.

Can I get extra support?

Every week there will be time to ask specific questions. If you want one-to-one feedback then the VIP option has a personalised mentoring session included.

Do I need Facebook to take part?

Yep. That’s where ALL the video content will be held so you’ll need access to that to take part.

How many video sessions will there be?

There will be a minimum of one video session per week.

How long will I have access to the course?

Once the course has ended I’ll leave all video content in the private Facebook group for you to replay. If for any reason Facebook ceases to exist in the future (imagine) I’ll do my best to move the videos to another platform so that you can still get access.

How much time will I need to invest in the course?

I recommend you set aside a minimum of 3 hours per week to digest the content and work through the written exercises. The more you write the more you’ll improve, so it’s up to you how much you want to get out of the course. 

Will this course run again?

There are no guarantees, but I’m hoping to run Find Your Voice again either later in the year or early 2021.

A LIL NOTE FROM ME:  Finding Your Voice is designed for people who want to write for business. It’s creatively focused – and a lot of fun – but if you don’t have a service or product to offer then this isn’t the course for you. I know this isn’t the cheapest course on the market, but if you wanted to hire me directly you’d pay double for the minimum package I offer. If you can’t afford this course, please don’t buy it. There will be other opportunities for you to hone your writing skills in the future.

If you have the money to invest in learning the life-long skill of writing like a boss then now is the time, pal!
