So this is the page I've been dreading writing...
I know there are some people in the world that love talking about themselves…it’s just I’m not one of them!
"as long as I can remember I have been a writer...
When I was seven we had a lady come into our school to teach creative writing.
She made the mistake of taking our first stories and binding them up into little books.
I was blown away, I can still remember my story (all 2 pages of it) and what she did remains with me to this day
So what do you do when you want to become a writer?
Yes that’s right you get a job as an accountant.
In fact I spent more than 20 years adding things up and taking away but during all that time I was still writing content
For fun at first but then semi-professionally and then…
Yellow Tomato was born
Along the way I became a Chartered Management Accountant and did an MBA so my professional writing was mainly working for accountants and service businesses, especially when they wanted a really technical white paper.
But word spread and people started contacting me to do other stuff, especially recruiters but also a collection of other fairly random SMEs.
I even did a fair amount of white label work for other agencies which was a mistake because I can’t include that in my portfolio!
Anyway finally I bowed to the inevitable and started Yellow Tomato.
And I am loving it.
I get to work with some absolutely epic businesses, doing the thing I love and if I wake up at 3am (which I have a habit of doing) then I can just get to work and then have a little snooze in the PM or go for a bike ride.
Did I say I live in Bournemouth UK?
