Liz Green - Ghostwriter

Kimberley, BC, Canada

Ghostwriter with a background in marketing and events. If you're an entrepreneur, let's write a how-to book that will build your business.

Overview

If you're an entrepreneur, you know writing a book can help build your business. It demonstrates your knowledge and experience. It helps you build authority in your niche. It lets you serve clients in a new way. And, of course, it can make you some moolah.

But many entrepreneurs—savvy folks with smart ideas—get blocked the moment they try to write their book. The words don't flow. The ideas come out muddled. It takes too much time and feels too overwhelming.

It's no surprise, really.

You're brilliant at what you do. It's just that what you do isn't writing.

At least, not writing in this format. You need someone to talk to, who can take your thoughts and see deep into the gems inside them. You need a writer to make sense of everything you think and feel and know, and lay it out in a way that's logical and powerful, so your readers are moved to take action and transform their lives.

That’s why I’m here.

I’m Liz Green, the writer behind Green Goose Ghostwriting. I help entrepreneurs like you write the book they dream of, the book that will serve their people and power their business forward.

A Post Graduate Degree in Journalism and a decade of working in news, PR, marketing and events taught me to find the nuggets in other people's knowledge and turn them into transformative stories. Through years of ghostwriting blogs I learned to listen and look deep, and to emulate my bloggers' voices. As I started working with authors and editors, I found joy in helping them express their ideas and experience in a way that truly felt like them.


TESTIMONIALS

“I am absolutely thrilled with all Liz has done for us. Admittedly, I was a bit nervous as to how having someone else write for us would go, but from our very first meeting, I was struck by Liz’s attention to detail, her professionalism and her knowledge of various different business platforms.

"It was clear that Liz spent a lot of time researching our blog, social media platforms and voice/presence online. I am always beyond thrilled and so grateful for the time and effort she puts in.

“Liz is incredibly proficient, and works quickly to turn info I send her into great writing, finessing my notes and wrangling our huge library of images. She goes above and beyond to find additional information to spice up and make our writing more interesting, informative and enticing to readers.
