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!


*Fuck I’m Great, Just Ask Me!

“I have worked with many, many women over the years and the one consistent thing I can say is that when they see their story written out and in front of them, they are always shocked by how much they have achieved and how interesting they look! They say “wow! I can’t believe this is me” or “I didn’t realise I had achieved so much! That’s why I decided to call this program FIGJAM. Plus I think it’s a perfect fit!” 

But when I first speak with these 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.

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.


So why not spend time on the phone with a female journalist?  Tell them your story and why you want it written down, and they will tell you the bits that you should/could include and which bits to leave out.


Then it’s your turn to write it down. You don’t have to spell well, you don’t have to be great at describing things, you don’t even have to write it very well at all, but when you email it back to the journalist, they will polish it so it shines!!


You will have a useful document that details your journey, and struggles to success. 

So how does it work? 

Well, 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 after that, 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!
