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 have favourites. And they're varied and diverse and interesting, just like people generally are. But included in this list is a handful of the people I just adore reading. I like them, I like their stuff, I like the way they word-wrangle. So, I thought it would be...
This is one of those How To guides where it’s easier to start at the end. Like when you re-enter the dating world after an inappropriate marriage and inevitable divorce, to work out your ideal person, it helps to recognise what is less than ideal. The deal breaker....
You know what you don’t want when you spend 20+ minutes creating a post in Facebook or Instagram? The cheery sound of crickets. Nada. Nothing. Zero engagement. Or worse, your Ma gives it a thumb’s up and then private messages you to let you know you’re doing it wrong...
