Guest Info - Mike Garner
I’m a content and email conversion copywriter. I help purpose-led businesses translate their vision and who they are into words that attract and convert.
I create stories, since the beginning of human civilisation, they've powered human endeavour and will continue to do so for a long time yet.
So your story matters, let’s start working on yours.
Vicky sits down with Mike Garner, who is WRITING HIS FIRST BOOK YAY! They wander around Paris for a while, fall into a romantic tale, and then circle back to what’s the most fun and the most difficult thing about writing. Funnily enough, for Mike, they’re the same thing. Tune in and get a writer’s perspective on writing and a couple of book recommendations!

- [17:50] If we’re not having fun, what’s the point?
- [20:50] What is Mike’s writing process?
