Words with influence & passion
Copywriting that helps you make sales and make a difference
I like to think that copywriting is much the same. Copywriting, after all, is communication. A good dose of strong copy can stimulate action from driving sales to changing opinions and sparking movements.
It’s also strong enough to create a lasting influence which makes it “hard to sleep after reading”!
Imagine if your words — from emails to websites, social media to print media — had that effect. How would that boost your business or cause?
Unfortunately, copywriting is often abused, misused or misunderstood — and this can make your copy lose its stimulating power. Your marketing could end up sounding “too cheesy”, “too pushy” or “too sale-sy”.
This might not be a problem if you’re only interested to make sales.
But, if your other goals include living your passion, improving lives, creating positive change or making a difference, then you need communication which authentically connects with your target audience.
Marketing should never have to feel “icky” — not for you, not for the reader.
I also believe that the most effective marketing is when the message authentically flows from your passion to the reader’s best interests with clarity and purpose.
If you’re a driven entrepreneur or changemaker, I have no doubt that you’ve been able to influence others by the presence of your sheer passion alone. Thing is though, running a business is time consuming. Unfortunately, you cannot do everything, be everywhere, or talk to everyone. In order to expand your business (and keep your sanity) you need to translate your passion into influential marketing materials.
That’s where I come in.
My service is to first and foremost listen to you, empathise with the purpose of your business or cause, and connect with your passion. Once I have that under my skin, I write your message using the best practices of copywriting and marketing to create an irresistible influence that has your target audience twitching to take your call to action.
And that, is the essence of Copy & Coffee.
Personally though, I like to think myself more as an activist with a pen (well, an activist with a keyboard, but pens are so much more nostalgic and romantic, don’t you agree? )
Anyhow, my journey into copywriting wasn’t a straight path. In university I studied science, driven by the curiosity of how nature works and immersed in the world of science fiction. Not long into my science career, it became pretty evident that I was more interested in the “fi” of sci-fi, and not so much the “sci”.
Dropping the white lab coat, I set out to follow my heart, which included pursuing social work, freelance writing, and moonlighting as a singer-songwriter. At first it was a bit of a mess. Between the three activities, I was wearing myself down pretty thin. Stressed, overworked and losing sleep, my health plummeted.
The doctors told me I had lupus. I had to quit my job as a social worker and drop the moonlight gigs. The only thing I could do from home was pick up more freelance writing. At least it was a passion that kept me going.
I worked my way up until I became full-time editor of an entertainment magazine called FACES. By then, my health had improved. After a year as Editor, a friend emailed me a job advertisement for an internet marketing copywriter position. The ad had a particular line that caught my eye, which said, “looking for driven creative people from entrepreneurs, to social workers and musicians”. It felt perfect. Despite not having any copywriting experience, I applied.
To my own surprise, I got the job at MindValley. And a whole new world opened up for me. I discovered the art of activism through writing. I gained first-hand experience of how “the pen is mightier than the sword”.
The experience at MindValley became one of the greatest and best learning curves of my life. I learned the power of copywriting and the ins and outs of internet marketing. I wrote copy that achieved million dollar launches, and I also learned hand-in-hand what doesn’t work and how to improve. In my second year there I became Chief Copywriter, leading and training a team of copywriters as MindValley expanded.
As I learned how to wield the mighty pen of activism, I began to personally apply these skills to my musical passions and social causes I believed in. The more results I saw, the more I wanted to help others do the same.
What I’ve learned from my long journey is this: I am far better and certainly much more skilled at wielding a pen than I am at wielding a sword (and we can safely ignore my dancing skills).
That’s why I want to help passionate individuals and visionary businesses like you spread your message. With my collective experience in writing, copywriting, media and public relations, internet marketing, blogging and social media marketing, I can help translate your passion into influential marketing materials.
Most importantly, I know what it’s like to be driven by a message you believe in. To want to live your passion. To want to make a difference through your skills, vocation or product. I also know how important it is to be able to do so joyously (without burning out or losing your health).
So if you’re looking for an experienced copywriter with the skills to make sales and the passion to make a difference, just contact me below. I will be excited to help you authentically connect with your target audience, spread your influence, and boost your business.

What I especially liked about her ideas was that she has a grounded and balanced perspective between what works in creative copywriting and what works to achieve the business objectives.
Lisa is pleasant, friendly, approachable and very efficient. She’s open to suggestions and discussion to ensure the work is done right. She works fast on the articles and presents them early so there is enough buffer time for revisions.
She also showed great initiative on updating the copy for the wedding section on the website, which wasn’t part of the work scope, and she did such a great job too. Thanks!”
