Are you an entrepreneur, speaker or community advocate looking for a unique way to market your personal story as part of your brand?
IF SO, my ‘Reasons to Live Mini-memoir’ writing course may be for you!
As a writing coach who has worked with survivors of domestic violence, addiction, child abuse, & many other forms of trauma, I have seen first-hand the healing power that comes from people writing & sharing their stories…
Stories of darkness that give way to triumphant light. Life journeys of unspeakable trauma, that transform into empowering narratives of hope and healing…
And more so, the incredible opportunities that we have to transform lives & elevate our businesses, through the sharing of our personal stories.
Think about it this way… If you were looking for a professional to assist you with overcoming a particular obstacle, & you could choose between someone with a lived-experience of that obstacle, & someone with qualifications but no personal understanding… Who would you choose?
It’s a no-brainer, right? As humans we are drawn to people with common experiences & life journeys…
And this is why I believe memoir-writing (whether it be a full length book, or a short story feature on your life) should be part of every entrepreneur or business owner’s toolkit!
WHY YOU SHOULD WRITE & SHARE YOUR STORY...
(As shared by some of my clients)
Prema Ra, Physiotherapist
“A year ago I emerged from a decade long abusive relationship, with my self esteem in tatters at my feet. With the help of my psychotherapist, and through Jas Rawlinson’s fabulous “Reasons to Live” writing program, I have begun to grow a brand new self esteem.
“You have been a great Blessing in my life Jas. This whole process with you is kick starting my movement back out into the world. I’m hoping, in the next decade, that I get to finish my book about chronic pain, and teach the work that I do before it’s too late! You have been an extraordinary catalyst in my life.”
“IF A STORY IS WITHIN YOU, IT HAS GOT TO COME OUT..." - William Faulkner
Right now you might be thinking: “But Jas, what if people judge me? I mean, is my story really worth telling?”
The answer is, yes! You absolutely should share your story with the world – regardless of what others may think.
Why? Well, as confronting as it may feel to think about reliving memories from your past, writing your story can also be incredibly liberating… And not only that, it can help you connect with & attract more of your ideal clients!
Which is why I offer personal OR group writing coaching sessions – specifically for entrepreneurs, speakers, coaches & community members with a lived-experience of overcoming adversity.

Angela, Domestic Violence Survivor
“It’s so easy to ask ourselves, ‘Am I really a great person? Am I truly valued? Am I good enough?’ That self-doubt sneaks in and makes you question yourself… But you have done a spectacular job helping me through the writing process, Jas! Reading my story, I was almost crying… You’ve made my story better with extra layers of emotion. Pulled the words out and put them in a way I wanted…”
