Hi there! I’m Nancy.
A word-loving, ukulele-playing, jazz-singing, copywriting and confidence coach who cannot wait to help you get clear, get confident, and get really good at writing cracklin’ hot copy that rises above the noise, captivates your ideal clients, and brings home some serious bacon.
For the past 11 years, I’ve been writing copy for some of the most brilliant, respected coaches and consultants on the Internet today while teaching entrepreneurs how to have a lot more fun and ease writing their own kickass copy.
And here’s what I know for sure.
If you want to attract clients like crazy, if you want to come into your authority and genius and be 100% confident in who you are and what you offer, if you want to create and sustain a business that shines like a friggin’ diamond in a world of frosted glass, you need to get over your “it’s so hard to write copy” nonsense, liberate your own wild voice, get hip to a few copywriting basics, and freakin’ have a blast writing copy that turns people on.
Sure, you can always hire a copywriter to write it for you. And there will probably come a time when you’ll need to do just that.
But not now, sugar!
Now is your time to fully liberate and claim your own wildly unique voice and get 100% confident in your message, your value, your you-ness and your ability to communicate all of that in a way that makes people give a damn.
Because once you can do that, there ain’t nothing you can’t do when it comes to building a business that makes you wealthy, well-known and extremely happy.
So, how did I get this gig as a confidence and copywriting coach?
Perhaps my 11+ years as a professional copywriter has something to do with it.
Or my 5+ years as a confidence coach.
Or my crazy patchwork of careers, all of which involved creating experiences and words that wake people up, fill them with hope and encouragement and inspire them to take bold action on their own behalf.
The truth is I never set out to become a copywriter or a coach. I simply evolved into this work as more and more people asking me to help them write and edit their copy. As a lifetime lover of words and writing, I enjoyed it.
And I was good at it.
A wise teacher once told me:
“Pay attention to what people ask of you. It will lead you to your greater purpose and reveal the work you were meant to do.”
I paid attention. I’m still paying attention.
I could say more about my long and diverse path as a copywriter who became a confidence and copywriting coach. Or I could give you a long list of credentials, degrees, certifications and experience.
But really? Who cares about any of that. Instead, here are a few things that may or may not be of interest to you.
13 Relevant and Not-So-Relevant Things About Me
- I was born with 3 ears. Well… two ears and just the barest nub of a third. At least that’s what my dad told me. And he always was a kidder.
- I’m a fourth generation Californian living in a New York.
- I learned how to write copy by doing it. A lot. And by studying with Lorrie Morgan Ferraro, Sandi Krawkowski, Alexandra Franzen, Ash Ambirge…. and a whole host of other copywriting and Internet marketing geniuses.
- My first and forever love is music. Since I was 3 I've been putting on musical shows. Some of which were of questionable quality. I studied opera in college and graduated with a Bachelor of Music in Voice Performance. Now, I sing with my jazz-pop trio "Nancy Tierney and The Boys" any chance I get.
I swear like an effing sailor. But I never rarely use profanity in my copy.
I make a mean baked chicken (I call it Chicken Diana) and I’ve almost perfected the recipe for rich, fudgey brownies.
I 'm a Francophile. I love everything French. The language, the music, the country, the culture, the champagne! My dream is to live in France for a year. Maybe longer.
- Other things I love: My two cats. Coffee. Lazy Sundays. Reading amazingly well-written novels. Sleeping. My house, Alice. Long, deep conversations with good friends. Cappuccinos with Kennie. New York City. Going to the movies. Animals.
I have a very loud and somewhat uncontrollable laugh. And I laugh a lot.
I’m an Apple user. I friggin’ love Apple! PCs suck.
Some of my favorite words are: taco. taquito. popliteus and persnickety. Because they’re so much fun to say out loud. Go on. Say them. There is a happy music in those words.
I believe writing powerful copy is about more than selling, convincing or getting people to like you. It’s about using the power of words to reach out, touch, move, inspire, encourage, uplift and awaken others. It’s about changing people’s lives, for a moment, for a week, or forever.
I’ve always been fascinated by that magical thing that happens when someone writes something - like a book, a song, a play, a film script or a piece or copy – and someone else, a complete stranger, can read it or hear it or see it, and suddenly feel, know, sense or experience something they weren't experiencing just moments before.
That’s some kind of crazy magic.
The kind of magic you'll possess after we work together.
The magic to transform people’s lives not only with your work but with your words.
