Hey, I’m Rachael. This is my home on the web where I talk about the realities of running a successful solo copywriting business, and the ups and downs of trying to do this while living a location independent lifestyle with no home base.

I’m a digital nomad and a professional freelance copywriter for tech and SaaS companies. I’ve worked with some of the world’s best software brands, including Datacom, Biteable, Unbounce, Culture Amp, Viddyoze, and Bynder.

But it wasn’t always this way.

In 2015, I made the insane life-altering decision to sell everything I owned and go travelling. I sold my small fashion retail business, my car, my motorbike, and pretty much everything else. My life now fits neatly into a 60 litre backpack.

I’ve been on the road since 2016 – starting and growing my copywriting business from zero to where it is now. It hasn’t been easy! But it’s been a fantastic adventure. I’ve learned so much, met incredibly smart, talented, and generous people along the way, and I wouldn’t change a thing.

Together with my partner David, we’ve travelled and worked across more than 25 countries, seeing incredible things like the ruins of Vlad the Impaler’s castle in the mountains of Romania, the lantern festival in Chiang Mai, the aurora in Finland, and the great migration in the Serengeti. And we’re not done yet!
