Zanny Merullo Steffgen

Zanny has been writing professionally for nine years, including three years as lead copywriter for a bicycle tour company and two years beyond that freelancing full-time. Her essays and articles have been featured in Business Insider, HuffPost, Matador Network, and The Discoverer, among other publications. Zanny started FGFW in the hopes of sharing lessons about time management, burnout, customer service, mental peace, and difficult client interactions that she earned from an unconventional life. She credits her experiences with chronic illness, living abroad as an expat, and working her way up in the restaurant industry with teaching her many of the skills she shares in her educational material. (Plus all the years of knocking on writing doors, of course). To learn more about Zanny and see her CV and portfolio, visit
