Hello, I’m Caroline McCormack and my day job is running a print management company, Digital Print Management based in Bedford.
One Woman’s View is a copywriting, content and web creation company that comes under the Digital Print Management umbrella and I established it having successfully completed a copywriting course gaining a distinction and, achieving qualifications in a number of freelance journalism courses.
Tom Hopkins in his book “How to master the art of selling” writes “the older you get, the more you know you need to know”.
I believe this to be absolutely true.
As humans, we are constantly learning which makes us entirely unique and, one of my favourite hobbies is reading and writing and this website is an extension of that love.
Every one of us can write we just lack the confidence and vigor to do it.
It can be keeping a simple diary or journal to writing a full blown book on a subject that is close to your heart.
It really boils down to whether you have the confidence to sit down and,
By avoiding procrastination something I’ve discovered since writing, we can set our minds to almost anything if we are determined enough.
You are never too old to try something new or have a career change.
It takes a bit of self-confidence and a deep breath and anything is possible.
After twenty-five years in the print industry, I wanted to take all that I had learned about print design, copy and layout and offer more than just ‘print’ to our customers by actually writing their content for them.
The joy of writing came about as a direct result of blogging and providing web content for all of Digital Print Management’s website which, you can check out here.
From there, I developed content for friends who had small businesses and micro websites and desperately needed my help and I loved it.
What do I write about?
If you check out my features page you’ll get to know what really gets my juices flowing.
I love writing about Women’s issues, feminism, teenagers, health/fitness, business and technology and being a Mum because let’s be honest it isn’ easy being a working Mum.
I graduated from the University of Nottingham in 1986 and from 2000-2002 studied a business degree at De Montfort University.
Born of an Italian mother and English father, I speak ‘get-by’ Italian but I blame my mother for that, passable Spanish and terrible French.
According to my family, I am the greatest film critic there is!
Whilst I can’t remember my own telephone number I can recall names of actors, when the film was made, who directed it and who composed the film score.
I am a self-confessed film nerd.
I love to run (more recently plod) and do lots of fitness training because I’m 54 and don’t want to fall apart by the time I hit 70.
I am also gadget hound, I want all the latest toys and gizmos and can be found happily sitting in the garden with iPad in hand reading or scribbling on it.
One of my favourite quotes is:
My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive.
And to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor
and some style.
– Maya Angelou
One of life’s great lessons is learning to love and be loved.
The most important thing in life is to learn how to give out love, and to let it come in
– Morrie Schwartz
