Reinvent Yourself isn’t about teaching you to write – rather it’s a practical guide to put you in the right mindset to succeed as a writer.
Changing careers from something ‘safe’ can be extremely difficult. Yet often it’s just your mind holding you back. Program creator Valerie Khoo knows this first hand. She was an accountant but knew that her heart was yearning for a creative career. It was only once her mind followed, that she unlocked her potential – and has spent the past 20+ years as an award-winning journalist, author, speaker and artist! She reinvented herself and wants to help you too.
"I signed up to the Reinvent Yourself course last year, and I’m happy to report that I have completely remade my life. I’m writing every day, and have just finished the first draft of my first novel. I write a short story every week for a writer’s forum, and now I am off to a Greek island to work on my next draft. Much better life than living as a stressed accounts assistant in Sydney." - Kellie Smith
