Hi, thanks for taking the time to visit my website. My name is Cindy Mobey and I’ve been in marketing and communications for nearly 20 years.
I spent 14 years working in the financial services industry as a writer in the marketing and communications team in the UK and the last six years as a freelance writer and marketing consultant helping small businesses.
During my time in the UK, I was lucky enough to go to India on a work assignment that, quite literally, changed the course of my life. I trained a team of communicators in a mental health charity in Chennai for just over a month. It was a fantastic experience and seeing the way of life in India, not just for my co-workers, but also that of my Tuk Tuk driver, who welcomed me into his home, I realised how narrow my view on life was.
After my Dad passed away and my India experience, I realised that material things are exactly that…we can’t take them with us. Life is too short and we need to make the most of every opportunity we can get in this life. So, with my partner, we emigrated to France and I set up my own writing and marketing business.
My partner is a musician and has played solo and as part of a duo since moving here. For nearly two years, we have both been part of a five piece band, Happy Hour. My partner plays acoustic and bass guitars and sings and I sing and play a few percussion instruments, as well as inflatable air guitar! It’s fantastically good fun, I absolutely love it and if you’d asked me 10 years ago what I’d be doing in 10 years time, I would never have guessed!
Living in rural France is not an easy life and French rules and regulations often bring us up against a brick wall, but I am lucky enough to do what I am so passionate about, which is writing and helping people with promoting their small businesses.
