Who Is Barb?

Barb Besteni

I’m an award-winning writer, editor, and communications professional with more than 35 years of experience writing, copyediting, and producing local, national, and international content on television, print, and digital platforms.

After decades of working in television news, I left the newsroom to pursue my passion for writing and editing full-time. Through this blog, I share my mission, my purpose in life … to challenge you to think, to feel, to be authentic.

I am an irreverent, no-holds-barred, no-apologies writer. Sometimes you will relate to what I write. Other times it will piss you off. But my irreverence will hopefully make you laugh because laughing is the antidote to everything life flings at us.

In addition to writing this blog, my specialties include:

  • Copy editing
  • Proofreading
  • Digital content creation
  • Features writing
  • Public speaking.

If you need my help with any of the above, email me, and let’s begin a conversation. I would love to help you pursue your passion for writing.

I believe that what we do for a living is not a job but a mission. And if that mission is not driven by passion, then it’s time to move on to something else. Life is too short to waste on “making a living.” Focus on creating the life you were born to live, and everything else will fall into place.

Thank you for taking this journey with me.
