There’s more than one way to successfully take your offline business, online, and today’s guest shows us that things don’t have to be perfect to make a big impact. Listen to the wonderful Rebecca Sparrow talk about how she successfully and unconventionally moved her business online, to become the professional godmother that every tween and teen girl needs.
Over the past 25 years Rebecca Sparrow has earned a living as a travel writer, magazine editor, TV scriptwriter, radio producer, best-selling author, and more.
These days her passion lies in helping teenage girls (and their parents) navigate high school friendships, have a more positive experience online, and understand that despite what society tells them, they are enough just as they are.
Rebecca had been going into schools and talking to thousands of high school students and their parents for many years, but she wanted to have a bigger impact helping more girls have a better experience of high school, and at the same time be there for her three young children.
She is the author of three best-selling novels The Girl Most Likely, The Year Nick McGowan Came to Stay, and Joel and Cat Set The Story Straight (co-authored with Nick Earls).
Since 2009 Rebecca has focused on writing non-fiction books for teenage girls to help them navigate those tricky high school years. Those books include Find Your Tribe (and 9 other things I wish I’d known in high school); Find Your Feet (The 8 things I Wish I’d Known Before I Left High School), and the best-selling Ask Me Anything (heartfelt answers to 65 anonymous questions from teenage girls).
Rebecca’s Favourite Quotes
“Everyone has the power for greatness, not for fame but greatness, because greatness is determined by service.” Dr Martin Luther King Jr.
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?' Actually, who are you not to be? ” Marianne Williamson
