What to give Mum for Mother's Day

Older generations have lived extraordinary ‘ordinary’ lives. Our elders, particularly our mothers, have contributed so much to our lives, our schools, our communities. One way our society can honour them is to listen to their lives. If you don’t know what to get your mum for Mother’s Day, why not hire a life storyteller? We ask the questions family members don’t think of and it will save you time. Your mother will have the present of a lifetime – her lifetime – and leave her legacy after she has gone.

Courage is an act of faith, of inner strength.

Readers feel cheated somehow if they feel that they have been misled. All writing, from a book to a brochure, leads to an outcome. Having a clear goal or outcome in mind before beginning to write will ensure that your writing stays on track and that your reader is satisfied and anticipating with enthusiasm what you write next.
