Did you ever think about writing a book at some point in your life or career?

We discuss tips for getting started and how to improve your writing, whether you’re working on a book or even an Instagram caption.

Laura offers key ways to becoming a better writer (hint, first become a reader!), how to generate ideas and how to overcome writer’s block.

    About Wendy:

    I help service providers stand out by telling their story on websites, emails and social media. When it comes to marketing, the greatest waste is an idea that fails to connect to its audience – not because it wasn’t a good idea but because it wasn’t packaged as a great story.

I’ve worked in marketing communications for nearly 20 years and experienced firsthand the rapid pace of change in this space.
