Co-Founder + CEO, LEESA SLEEP
They say a picture is worth a thousand words but in a world where we are bombarded with images, a few well-chosen words make all the difference. This is where Lisa stands out; her writing is creative and succinct with just the right touch of emotion. She excels telling her own stories, and generating copy for her clients.
founder/Designer, triple space design + Amy Hope
Lisa Richmon has a gift. Her ability to distill information and create copy with myriad uses astounds me. I’m a designer. Throughout my entire career, I’ve been hired for my ability to create someone else’s vision. When it came time for me to write about Amy Hope I was stumped. Lisa made the project fierce, fast and fun. Lisa is fearless, probing and direct. Wildly funny, she can be extremely provocative in a way that made me dig deeper than I expected to, and enjoy finding my voice, message and my goal. I love that she is always accessible when I need an update and her experience and expertise comes with the added bonus of being an incredible connector. All in record time and on budget.

Lisa definitely added whim and personality to my story. She’s easy to work with; she takes the time to understand your needs so she can help you in the most thorough way possible. I was thrilled with the finished product and highly recommend Lisa for projects large and small.

Thank you for all your help and talents. You are my Cannonball muse and a force of nature. I’m so glad your force found me.

I loved your profile rewrites. Taking hideous language and making it sound human makes such a difference. Hard to believe the before and after are the same people.
Executive Leadership Coach/Personal Strategist
As a coach and writer, Lisa has many gifts that helped me articulate my emerging brand vision. She discovered precious hidden jewels in my story that I wouldn't have found on my own. It’s a treat to work with someone that not only gets you, but frees you up to see your talents in a refreshing new light. Lisa makes you do the work, but she also makes it fun and inspiring.

Lisa Richmon can shake the cobwebs off your naming efforts by pushing you in unexpected directions. Especially helpful was her advice to ‘look for names you can grow into.’

Working with Lisa was nothing short of an adventure in words. She dives right into the work with speed and vigor. She is great to talk to and work with, so full of positivity. She was worth every penny and I came away with a whole new appreciation for the written word.

I was hooked after one conversation with Lisa. I receive a lot of collaboration requests, but turn them down because they lack a unique selling point and originality. Lisa is an innovator who puts personalization in everything she does. As a long time freelancer, I know how rare it is to have this type of client relationship. I'm beyond indebted to Lisa for what we created together.

Founder of gray matter group
Lisa is my go-to genius when it comes to finding language for messages that hit too close to home for me to articulate to my satisfaction. She asks the right questions, comes up with great ideas, refines, asks more questions and makes sure her words resonate with me. I know she is more than extraordinary because I always read her work and think, “That was exactly what I wanted to say!” Not only is she an excellent writer, but she extracts that extra something to provide an authentic, creative and well-produced result.

I'm moved by Lisa's personal essays because they're beautifully written and so relatable. I'm equally impressed by her ideas for new articles.Lisa shines when she approaches universal experiences with a fresh beat.

I was struggling with a difficult assignment in new journalistic territory and didn't know where to turn. Lisa responded with a "been-there" understanding, helped me get my grounding and provided the information and perspective I needed. She was the link between a rough start and a home run.
CEO TD Madison & Associates
TD Madison & Associates had the opportunity to work with Lisa on the development and redesign of our webpage. She was able to assist us in crafting the right message for our audience. We found her to be forward thinking, creative, and a delight to work with, as well as being a true professional.

Lisa is one of the funniest writers I know. Actually one of the funniest people I know. She is warm, intelligent and real – just like her writing. I'd love to work on a series with her!
Professional Services Marketer Williams Mullen
My conversations with Lisa are always productive and enjoyable. She helps me look at my life and abilities differently which in turn has allowed me to see a range of possibilities I had not previously contemplated.
Dr. David Turok, DDS
When I hired Lisa to help me write my personal statement for my dental residency application, I expected some good lines and maybe some grammatical assistance. Instead Lisa helped me search a little deeper and find the true essence of what I wanted to say. From there the writing came naturally. Needless to say, I was accepted into the program that was my first choice.

Wow. Perfectly unsentimental, which is rare as roast beef, but still loving, and so real.
