MAKING REAL PEOPLE FEEL LIKE CELEBRITIES: BECAUSE OF HER BACKGROUND IN CELEBRITY JOURNALISM AND PASSION FOR INTERVIEWING REAL PEOPLE, LILY LOVES MAKING EVERYDAY PEOPLE REALIZE HOW EXTRAORDINARY THEY ARE.
Nothing is more critical to your brand than a biography that articulates why you do what you do and why you are better at it than anyone else! Over the last decade, I have written hundreds of biographies for all walks of life from corporate executives to celebrities. Whether they’re 250-words for LinkedIn or 500 for your website, my biographies do a deep dive into my subject’s career history, accomplishments, and unique offerings to their chosen field. I am known for presenting other’s stories in a short-and-sweet style that humanizes and highlights their best selves.
Listening is an art form and can elicit great information that is hard to see ourselves. Hiring a professional like myself to ask the right questions, listen, and empathize can bring out beautiful stories that have been hiding underneath the surface. I look at my interviews as holding up a mirror to shine the light on my subject’s best selves. While the actual interview is said to have a therapeutic effect, my subjects find it especially helpful to have the written conversation sent to them afterwards. Having the words they said in front of them helps them to understand themselves more clearly as a professional. By asking thought-provoking questions, actively listening, and empathizing with my subjects, I help them better understand who they are, their professional paths, and why they do what they do.
CAREER & MEDIA COACHING
I love coaching others in face-to-face conversations, whether it is in-person over coffee or on Skype, about how to sell their story whether for a job interview, on a podcast, or in front of an audience. To do this, my subjects and I take our time exploring their personal narrative, figuring out what to highlight, and how to present it in the most positive and effective manner. It has been said that because of my non-judgment, ability to be present, and really see the person in front of me that I find nuggets of gold in their narratives that others have overlooked. I love teaching others how to talk about their careers in a clear, creative, and conversational manner so they can be successful.
In the last year, I have really fallen in love with the art of resume writing, which goes along with my passion for helping others find the best job for them. I would love to help you craft a resume that will sell you to your dream job by highlighting your most unique qualities and skills that are applicable to it. My passion is helping other people land the right position for them.
