Meet Tarryn from Zimpasha
OBM | Ridiculously Organised Tech-Loving Extraordinaire | Crisp Copy Class Alumni
Tell us about the moment you decided to start your own business. What was the catalyst?
My business started by accident. I was made redundant a week before I found out I was pregnant. I couldn’t get a job due to my ‘situation’ so I decided to do my own thing. I took all of the skills I had gathered over the years and offered them to overwhelmed entrepreneurs. The rest is history.
What do you utterly love about running a business?
I love being able to have a business that is flexible to me and being able to choose who I work with. The biggest bonus though is the work uniform – fluffy socks anyone?
What drives you bonkers about marketing, branding, and businessing?
I am so sick of the belief that you have to push and work really hard to create a succesful business. It is simply not true. Create a brand that truly reflects you, know who your ideal client is, show up with a belief in yourself and your service and the rest will come.
What prompted you to sign up for the Crisp Copy Class?
I had been stalking Jay for a while and love her fun style. I decided to sign up to hone my copywriting skills so that I could further serve my clients.
What has the Crisp Copy Class helped you achieve, that you wouldn’t have been able to DIY?
A clearer understanding of how to write to appeal to an audience.
What’s your favourite piece of copy you wrote in the CCC?
I love my About page.
Tell us a randomly delicious thing about you not already all over the internet?
I was born in Africa.
I can lick my elbow.
I have books stashed all over the house.
What’s next for you and your brand and your business?
I am gearing up for a full rebrand in January 2020 under my own name. I will be offering Holistic Business Management services, launching a tech lab and offering coaching and mentoring.

I started dance at the age of 2. My mother was a ballroom dancer, she met my father dancing, my Aunt owned what was then the biggest ballroom dance school in WA, both sets of my grandparents danced, and my great-grandma, Ho Ho (pronounced "Hoo Hoo"), sewed my dance...
Why would you set yourself up an out of office reply? Surely there are enough little jobs to do this time of year, top of the list including some serious lazing on a couch in front of the air-con (or fire, depending on which part of the world you're in). OOO replies...
Some of you have heard me say this before. Copywriting is part creative, and part science. And here’s where someone who has never formally studied the human brain will tell you a thing I am 99% sure is true: When we're under pressure, it’s much easier to recall...
