Got deer-in-the-headlights paralysis whenever you sit down to write ANYTHING about yourself? You’re not alone.
Writing about yourself is hard, especially when you don’t consider yourself a writer.
Whether you’re trying to write the About Page on your website, a sassy bio for your Twitter account, or just explaining what you do to someone at a party… you know you’ve got all kinds of awesome to offer, but what’s coming out when you try to put it into words just isn’t professional enough.
And worse yet, it’s just not you.
I’m here to help you get untangled & unstuck on words NOW.
In this do-it-at-your-own-pace word-kit, you’ll learn the anatomy of a brilliant About Page and Bio, and be taken through the copywriter’s process step by step with real (read: useful) examples, activities, references and templates.
From the right questions to ask to dig deep into your WHY, to how to brainstorm like a mofo, YOU in Words won’t only get your creativity flying on all engines but will boost your confidence (and in turn your writing skill) to the moon!
The truth is…
You don’t have to be a professional copywriter to write a kick-ass about page for yourself.
You just need to know how to think like one.
So, what’s inside (and how’s it going to help you smash it out of the park)?
Module 1: Who the heck are you and why do I care?

“I've just finished poring over YOU in Words, and wow! She's a beauty. I was really impressed by the depth of the modules and just how much value Celeste has packed into this eBook - yet at the same time, it's so fun to read! I cannot think of a more affordable way to professionally create (or overhaul) your About Page and Bio. Plus, there's a ton of real-life examples and references to get that creativity flowing. 5 sparkly stars!”
"Celeste's word-kit is worth it's weight in bars of solid gold! Her thoughtful advice, loads of dos and don'ts you forget way back in your uni days, and real-life case studies inspired a dramatic overhaul to our About Page. (Literally, as I put the word-kit down.) Our page was formerly a drab recap of our lives and required a serious DIY makeover to drop the ‘me me me’ and show how our skills can help ‘you you you’ (our reno readers)! I am certain there's something in her bag-of-tricks every blogger (or biz) will resonate with, and in turn aid a crafty 'About You Page' transformation!"
"Whoa. What a beautiful way to absolutely master your About Page and Bio like a Pro! Celeste's created the most incredible guide, to take you on a journey to dig deep, peel the layers back, uncover your purpose, and bring your message to light exceptionally.

Celeste, you are so divinely talented and have absolutely nailed this."

"Right from the first page of YOU In Words I felt like Celeste was in my head and somehow knew every secret fear and hesitation I had about copywriting. A few more pages in and I was buzzing. Not only because I felt like I’d finally found a solution to a problem that had been frustrating the crap out of me for so long, but her canny style of explaining things has a way of giving you that confidence boost to believe you actually have it in you to write your own kick-ass copy. Every module takes you through her unique process of digging deep to extract the right info and actually make it sound pretty damn good. I feel like it might have been there all along, I just needed Celeste’s word-kit to help me find my voice."
“If I had to choose 5 words to say how wonderful Celeste, The Devil Wears Flip Flops and her 'You in Words' ebook is, I'd choose: Devilishly clever, aspiring & red hot. Celeste's work is immaculate eye candy, delving self enquiry designed to stretch and evolve you, and fun!!”
"The YOU In Words e-book packs a serious punch. If your website copy has been lacklustre but you lack the budget to bring in the professional big guns to fix it, this is the quick and easy answer you’ve been waiting for. With years of professional experience behind her, Celeste knows exactly what works and shares it all with a refreshing candor — this definitely isn’t a rehash of your boring high school grammar book!
