So you want to use your business for good. To do your bit to change the world. And to do this, you need to connect with clients, find your tribe, spread your message and win raving fans. But you feel all icky about self-promotion. Sales feels sleazy. And does anyone really care? So how do you do this? Storytelling. Use stories to win business, convert clients and bring in the money your purpose-driven work deserves.
Inspired Writing Mentor holds your hand and help you to tell your story – whether you’re writing a book for your clients, revamping your business about page, writing a presentation to wow crowds, or penning blog posts to connect authentically with your audience.
The courses provide clear, step-by-step instructions which will guide you on what to write, how to structure it and what writing techniques you can use to take your writing from ho-hum to solid gold.
You’ll receive meditations and free writing exercises to help you overcome fears and release your authentic voice, as well as practical checklists, templates and formulas that the guess work and fear out of writing so you can tell your story. You’ll soon find writing a breeze, you’ll easily captivate others and you’ll develop your own personal style that is so god-damned good you’ll be busting to share it with the world.
I’m driven by the belief that everyone has a story to share – and that the world can only benefit from its telling.

I started my career as a storyteller more than 20 years ago, as an 18 year-old cadet journalist, awash with enthusiasm and intent on fighting corruption, exposing evil and changing the world. But it wasn’t long before I found myself dreading my job. I loved the writing. But I hated annoying people. I remember being ‘gifted’ the chance to cover the court round. Fired up with my new importance I marched into the local court. But it wasn’t long and found myself shrinking further into my seat. This wasn’t reporting in the public interest, it was gossip dissemination. Did the world really benefit from news articles about drink driving charges and minor theft?
Eventually I resented news journalism so much I quit and went freelance. I went on do a whole heap of freelance writing, wrote five books, and ran PR freelancing consultancy along the way. Yet I remember sitting in a swanky hotel room in Mauritius on a travel writing assignment, an infinity pool stretched before me and a cold beer by my side, and berating myself for thinking this still wasn’t it. I might be having brag-about experiences and entertaining readers, but I wasn’t doing any good for the world.
Imagine, I dreamed, if instead of spreading doom, celebrity fluff and sensationalism, I could use good writing to uplift, to engage and inspire. Buoyed by this notion, I went on to launch Inspired Magazine, which shares profiles on eco-warriors, game changers, love spreaders and peace makers
Through Inspired Magazine, I came to truly appreciate the power of story. And I came to realise everyone has a story hidden somewhere inside.
This got me to thinking. Imagine if we all had the ability to tell our own stories; to share the life experiences that led us to develop the rich nuggets of inner wisdom that make us who we are. And imagine if we could do this in a way that people wanted to listen. For stories have power. They move us, they inspire us, they make us care. Imagine how much we could teach, how much we could learn, how this shared wisdom could help humanity surge forward with positivity and innovation.
And, imagine if we could use storytelling in our businesses? To take the ick out of sales to authentically connect with your tribe, to cultivate a following of raving fans, and how your business could subsequently soar.
So I set myself a task – to teach others how to use the rich storytelling techniques I employ at Inspired Magazine to tell their own stories. Enter Inspired Writing Mentor.
