    I am a writer that focuses on resumes, LinkedIn profiles, cover letters, corporate bios, and various business content (websites, marketing materials) for clients. I also have expertise in job search tactics and strategy and offer clients help via one-on-one coaching services over video call or phone. My specialty is technology resumes for the US market targeting start ups (Silicon Valley / San Francisco Bay Area and across the US) with many successes at big name companies (Google, Facebook, Apple, Microsoft, Amazon, Tesla, FAANG, et al.). I've also written hundreds of resumes and CVs for global clients from CEO to junior roles across industries including law, marketing, finance, entertainment, and healthcare. My technology clients range from CTO and CIO level, entrepreneurs and founders, product managers, data scientists, software engineers, project managers, infosec, testers, etc. I'm different than most resume writers in that I have 20 years of hiring experience as a recruiter for US startups, so I have deep knowledge of the resume's intended audience. I know how the mind of a recruiter functions - why they stop reading a resume, what gets their interest, etc. - and I leverage that expertise when writing for my clients. I have had many articles on tech career topics (resumes, interviews, markets) published and/or cited by Lifehacker, Fast Company, WSJ Online, American Management Association, Tech Beacon, DZone, et al. My former blog (now inactive) is JobTipsForGeeks.com, and I published a job search ebook Job Tips For Geeks: The Job Search (available on Amazon). I'm 'fecak' on Hacker News and active on Reddit's /r/resumes as 'resumeraidersDOTcom' where I help job seekers with targeted advice on resumes and job search strategy. I'm also a former moderator at /r/cscareerquestions under my own handle 'fecak'. Please have a look at my Upwork history and reach out if you have any questions. Keywords: software engineer, developer, product manager, data analyst, data science, business intelligence, digital marketing, founder, cybersecurity, security, infosec, CISO, embedded, technologist, blockchain, cryptocurrency, mobile, web, project manager, CTO, CMO, SaaS, Internet of Things, IoT, SF, NYC, Austin, Seattle, resume help, CV help, curriculum vitae

    ⚠️ I work exclusively with PROVEN businesses that want to take things to the next level. The clients I accept for my marketing strategy and Fractional CMO services are: ❌ NOT doing their fifth pivot of the year ❌ NOT living on a diet of ramen noodles to keep the lights on, and are ❌ NOT about to offer profit sharing because they can’t afford me otherwise Still here? Then find out why Upwork clients like you are saying: 🗣️ “Don't be put off by the hourly rate. Steven will deliver more in a few hours of his time than other ‘experts’ who like to bill you monthly for doing very little. In the end, you will be far ahead by having Steven in your corner. No BS, he goes above and beyond.” 🗣️ "If you are sick of being scammed by marketing agencies, please please please at least talk to Steven first. Yes he is not cheap but he delivered a lot more and saved us sooooo much money from hopping between agencies." 🗣️ “Steven is specific and strategic in his feedback so you're not left wondering what the next step is. Highly recommended if you're looking for 'cut through the noise' feedback to help you make decisions without paying the dues of ‘figuring it out’ over time.” 🗣️ “We have tried so many marketing agencies, CMOs, and marketing consultants. A lot of them are full of BS and they have no idea what they are doing. We are so glad we found Steven! He is an expert bull shit detector when it comes to marketing fluff.” 🗣️ "Steven and his team will become part of your team/family when you work with them! Like how friends are, he always gives honest assessment on what is needed and what is not, even if that means he might not benefit from it financially. That is something difficult to find these days. The only reason we are stopping the contract is he and his team did their job too well, giving us the playbook for us to execute for the coming months and year ;)” 🛠️🛠️🛠️ Things I can do for you: 🛠️🛠️🛠️ ✅ Develop a competitive marketing strategy ✅ Help you maximize your marketing budget ✅ Audit the work of your employees/agencies ✅ Build, train, or coach your marketing team ✅ Answer all your marketing questions (or help with things you didn't even know to ask) And much more. Whatever your situation, you'll leave with confidence that you're on the right path. (Need SEO help? Switch to my specialized profile in the sidebar) 🏷️🏷️🏷️ Pricing & Services 🏷️🏷️🏷️ $999/hour looks obnoxious, but Upwork only allows 3 digits max (I'd raise it if I could). But I have a unique business model to help you get maximum value with minimal risk. There's only ONE service new clients can hire me for: My no-fluff marketing consultation package. Here’s how it works: 1️⃣ Give me details on your business in one big info dump. Explain your issues, show me your analytics, and write a giant list of as many questions as you can think of. 2️⃣ We’ll then schedule 3 Zoom calls: One for clarifying info, one to go over all of your questions live, and one to cover the things you didn't know to ask. 3️⃣ For 30 days after the contract starts, you'll also get unlimited access to me over email. Whatever questions pop up later, I'll have an answer. The price is a flat, one-time cost of $25k. For the right client, this quickly pays for itself – sometimes *instantly* when I cut your wasteful marketing spend! If you can't comfortably afford this, my services are not for you. Don't go into debt or use the last of your runway to hire me – I can't advise a client that has no budget left. If you need more help after that first month, we can discuss ongoing services if it makes sense. Typical clients will sign on for a $10-30k monthly retainer to get my team's hands-on involvement, but many don't need anything extra because they got all the help they needed. 🛑🛑🛑 Before We Can Work Together 🛑🛑🛑 My own businesses keep me plenty busy, so I’m very careful with accepting new clients. Due to the volume of inquiries I get, I automatically trash any invites with the default "I'd like you to apply to my job" message. When you send me a message, there are three things you must include: 1) Info on your company, including a link to your website 2) Details on what challenges you’re currently facing so I know if I'm able to help or not 3) Confirmation that you read my full profile and have the budget to comfortably afford $25k (type the number back to me – I'll try to honor it even if I raise prices later) Sometimes it takes me a while, but I do reply to all invites that meet this criteria. ➡️➡️➡️ Next Steps ➡️➡️➡️ When you're ready, just click the green Invite / Contact button to send a message. You won't be locked into anything – we'll chat about details first before we start. P.S. Not logged in? Upwork will hide 90% of my work history (below). Create an account to see all my past projects and testimonials. [Note to other freelancers: Everyone who plagiarizes this profile gets reported and banned]

    I'm booking new clients every day!! Send your most recent Resume & LinkedIn profile URL for complimentary reviews which always includes my transparent process, all deliverables, estimated timelines & fixed-price quotes! *Note: I don't have anywhere close to the active client jobs listed and most are completed (those are mainly clients keeping contracts open if they need future career services work). ABOUT ME: • UpWork's Top 1% of global talent & Top-Rated by clients for 7 straight years since 2017. • I've rewritten 5,800+ resumes & optimized 2,300+ LinkedIn profiles in 19 years • Highly experienced Career Counselor (Master of Science, Counseling Psychology - Vocational focus) • Solo owner for DIYCareerGuy LLC since December 2016; a full-service career solutions company that helps global job seekers & career transition clients from dozens of industries. • Former Adjunct Professor at SUNY Oswego - taught strategic business communications • Corporate Outplacement Services Provider; helping your departing employees empathetically transition back into the job market. HR EXPERIENCE: I have also worked in HR. I know the hiring process first-hand, which is critical to understanding what Recruiters & Hiring Managers need to see from top candidates. My global network of Recruiters & Hiring Managers is massive, so working with me is also a potential opportunity to connect you with contacts. RESUMES REWRITTEN CORRECTLY (19 years): • I rewrite/reformat resumes to be simple, easy-to-digest, clutter free & focused on YOUR value • I do this by highlighting leadership actions, processes/tools & results (critical!) • My clients are Mid-career, Management, Executive & C-suite-level talent • Each service includes my transparent process, fully edited docs, & job search education • A great resume is a blend of simple, concise professional presentation, compelling, results-focused content, and a reflection of your natural career path. • Important; I complete ALL work myself, based on that 19 years of experience and NEVER farm out my clients' work (careful, because that's a trend in this industry).

It's a myth, trust me, I have worked in HR and know the hiring process first hand. Also, I'm friends with DOZENS of great Recruiters that use an ATS daily. Understand what its' purpose is and stop falling for Career Coaches' BS selling you lies. Your resume needs to be clearly written to convince Recruiters you meet the minimum job qualifications.

    Thanks so much for looking at my profile! First of all, I hate the words Amazon Expert, Coach, Guru, etc. But, that's what most people search for, so it only makes sense to have that in the title! I'm just a guy who's obsessed with selling on Amazon and helping others save time and money by avoiding common mistakes and following the right practices and principles of selling on Amazon. I have been running an Amazon FBA business ever since I was in college. In the last two years, I have generated over a million dollars in sales. My Amazon business is generating semi-passive income and allows me to avoid the 9-5 while growing my other businesses as well as helping others achieve success on Amazon. Whether you are just starting out, or if you are a seasoned seller, I could certainly be of help if you need it! I specialize in all things Amazon. From product research techniques, all the way to maintaining your sales while your Amazon business is on autopilot. Here are some of the key things my clients usually need help with: PPC Advertising Product Research (I do not find products for you. That's something you have to do on your own) Procurement & Shipping Product Launch Ranking Reviews Listing Optimization (Photos, Keyword Research, Title, Bullet Points, Description, etc). Brand Registry and many others. Amazon is what I do for a living, hence I have very good knowledge in all of these aspects. Just about anything from start to finish, I'd be more than happy to provide my knowledge and advice!

    Content marketing is the driver of every winning campaign. The most elaborate web, pitch deck, and promotional designs fall flat as a pancake without compelling content. And persuasive content doesn't just happen; it takes deep research and experience to connect to customers' emotions and thoughts - to speak to them in a voice they'll respond to. Over 300 intensive projects on Upwork alone with five-star reviews signify I have what it takes to integrate your communications program from a content viewpoint. If you fail to get your audience's attention in the first twenty seconds, the odds of creating interest, conviction, and a sale is virtually zero. I understand the process like the back of my hand, so I get the results you are looking for. My expertise covers: - VC fundraising - Web engagement and flow - SEO-centric objectives - Articles that are original with a Capital "O." - B2B , B2B, and B2B2C audiences. My content scope includes complex financial calculations and metrics when relevant. I'm up to speed on ratio analysis and Excel worksheets that converge on cash flow, P&L, and Balance Sheet calculations if your content requires such input. As a content consultant, advisor, and implementer, I'm a necessarily versatile and logical thinker and conversant in: - Microsoft Office (Word & Excel) - PowerPoint (alongside PDF) presentations - Google Docs - Developing Executive Summaries - Financial Modeling. You'll discover that content marketing with me at the helm is nothing short of practical, concise, fluent, researched, easy to read, and to understand. I harness it to the predisposition of the expected audience. If you require engaging, compelling, and image-propelling communications, that's where I shine. Subject matter isn't a brake on my capabilities. It includes finance, health, SEO/Digital marketing, energy, technology, financial technology, real estate, sales enablement, and employee & customer experience (to name a few areas). I have a broad client base reflected on my Upwork profile and a vast archive of past work (available on request). Content marketing works like no other medium when the thinking power behind it is thinking straight. I do that well. Available to review samples of content development for: - Pitch decks - VC and Hedge fund projects - Sales enablement programs - eBooks - White papers - Promotional campaigns - Web sites If all or any of the above resonates with you, I'm probably a good fit. I'd like to hear from you. I listed my company, Columbia Consultants Ltd., on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange in 1986. Under my leadership, I also initiated similar listings for four clients, all beginning as small businesses. - I was one of 7 candidates for Chivas Regal Businessmen of the Year 1988. - I have worked on three continents: Africa - Europe - North America over the last 40 years. - My connections with recognized institutions may be a valuable supplement for growth funding

    Hello All I am a Business Administrator and looking for freelance work. During my studies I was able to gain a general education in Business Administration covering a broad variety of fields such as General Management, Marketing, Production, Purchase and Logistics, Adherence and Implementation of quality, environmental and safety principles, HR, Financing and investment, Accounting, IT, organisational structure and development and project management. My strenghs lie in Financial Accounting, as I haven been working as an accountant for the past 5 years in a big international SME in Switzerland. Lately my focus goes over to transform Financial departments to prepare for Digitalisation. I also have deep knowledge in Business Model Canvas elaboration and start-ups. My short to mid-term goal is to work freelance as an acocuntant, business coach and financial modeller helping start-ups or already existing companies with their accounting challenges. Since my education is a bit complex compared to international standard, I'd be happy to provide you with a more detailed and official information.

    I take a customer (target audience) perspective to leverage the power of SEO, ATS, and LinkedIn’s algorithm to solve your business problems and deliver the results you need. Whether that is to land a new job, build sales leads, or simply to refine your professional image prior to a critical engagement with a client, RFP, or investing round. I've provided professional development and business consulting on 400+ LinkedIn personal pages, resumes, cover letters, and 100+ company pages from around the world. I'll deliver: - Attention-grabbing page rewrites including keywords, aesthetics, grammar, and syntaxes - Industry-agnostic Search Engine Optimized (SEO) content - Strategies to get more views on your posts - An optimized company page for revenue enablement - Unique strategies to meet your objectives (e.g. land your next role, build a sales funnel, or grow your following) - A clean-looking and optimized profile, for web & mobile, that reflects the work you have put into your career - Photo assessment based on three key competencies I began revamping fellow veterans' and active-duty soldiers' accounts, getting them ready to get back into the civilian world. But I quickly realized that there were a lot of mistakes that I kept seeing over and over. So I developed a quick and easy guide to help understand not only what I was changing, but more importantly- why. My past clientele includes C-suite executives, their public sector equivalent, small business owners, mid-career professionals looking for a change, recent graduates just entering the workforce, and even recruiters. Here is what one of my recent clients; Roman, a company founder, and CEO, who recently had his company acquired and is looking for his next opportunity had to say about my work; "I am so glad that I chose Harry for this project. His expertise surpassed all of my requirements and I learned of things that I wasn't even aware of with my LinkedIn. He was great with communication and walked me through any questions or concerns that he had throughout. I really enjoyed his analysis of my pictures, and I feel confident that I have a completely revamped profile now thanks to Harry. I really liked working with him and I already know that I will be hiring him again." Or how about Ashely, a recruiter out of Vancouver that is trying to further inspire confidence in her experience and build relationships with new clients without appearing too robotic; "Harry is great to work with. I was happy with the quality of his work and thoroughness of the guide he provided with the finished product. He is quick to respond and extremely receptive to feedback. He was able to make revisions for me in a timely matter and communicated throughout the whole process. His reasoning and explanations behind why he did the things that he did were well thought out and in line with LinkedIn's best practices. I'd recommend Harry to anyone looking to get their profile optimized." Within a day of me completing her profile, she had new clients reaching out to her, and complimenting her on how approachable and human her profile felt. If you are trying to build a full team's professional profile or are preparing your C-suite's team prior to an investment round or marketing campaign - reach out. I specialize in navigating and completing complex projects like this that require input from a lot of stakeholders. This is an investment in your career, your professional identity, and the success of your business. Not just for today but for the next months and years. Let’s treat it as such. Together we’ll create a profile that suits your specific niche, land you leads, works towards your online reputation management- not against it, and cement ties with others in your industry. If you are interested in learning more about how I can help you or your business, feel free to reach out with any questions or concerns.

    Your B2B business is growing but you don't feel in control. You want to launch a new product or startup but are unsure of the next steps. Growth is uneven. I’ve been there too. It's often about bringing Clarity to Clutter! TESTIMONIALS FROM SOME OF MY CLIENTS: “George has been an outstanding partner in developing a well thought out and effective business plan” “He has been a valuable advisor and coach for my business. George has helped me think through and put in place systems for realizing more predictable growth and managing more growth profitably.” “George was great to work with. He has great business knowledge and had awesome ideas and insights.” “Excellent business writer, very knowledgeable and extremely communicative.” NOT MANY FREELANCERS HAVE SUCH DIVERSITY OF EXPERIENCE AND ABILITY TO DELIVER VALUE... Business leaders need partners that can bring a seasoned perspective but also deliver what’s needed today. You need help to focus on what’s most important today, fix it, and then move on to the next area. My clients have built momentum for a new product or new business launch. They have turned their operations around to regain the growth and profit momentum they once had. For the last three decades, serving as an operating executive and consultant, I’ve learned that leaders know when they need help. The bigger problem can be defining the problem and identifying the right help to address it. When stuck, you need perspective and insight. Someone that has been where you are, that can quickly see what you’re facing, and offer valuable input. But, having only advice doesn’t always move the needle. You need value delivered to help regain or build momentum. Here are a few examples: •Writing a business plan –for a startup, restructuring or launching a new product begins with grasping the vision, considering all elements that contribute to or inhibit success, modeling financially, and then constructing a story that simply and realistically communicates this to investors, partners, customers or employees. •Startup plans – keep it simple, testable, and flexible until customer value is identified, with a low-cost, scalable business model. •Investor presentations – tell a compelling, understandable and emotional story that resonates. •Market research – identify the market segments and customer influence points before launching. For non-profits its developing campaigns that target all the constituencies. •Go to Market plans – taking a product or service to market needs well-designed marketing and sales programs that are cost-effective and coordinated. •Operational improvement – identifying what’s working and what needs changing, positioning for growth or stability, declaring the key metrics that indicate progress. •Financial projections - modeling change that manages cash flow and projects profits aligned with the vision. For non-profits, it’s starting from the beginning each year to identify the funds needed. Your business needs constant care and continuous change. Staying focused on what’s most important until it’s addressed is one of the biggest challenges you face. My broad perspective helps me keep you laser-focused. I could go on and on. I am a student of business and love to dig deep and share ideas. But I'd rather hear about what you’re facing today... To be candid, I stay busy and rarely have time to take on a new client. Even then, I screen very carefully to make sure it's a good fit. So if you need something in a rush, done cheap, or doesn’t require much thinking, please look elsewhere. It will save us both time and energy. Otherwise, feel free to contact me using one of the buttons at the top of the page, and I'll do my best to get back to you ASAP. Best, George

How to Hire Top Business Coaches

How to hire business coaches

Feeling overwhelmed? Setting goals but not seeing the results you’re looking for? Wish you had someone to talk to and motivate you to grow your business? These are all signs you might need to hire a business coach. 

So how do you hire business coaches? What follows are some tips for finding top business coaches on Upwork. 

How to shortlist business coaching professionals

As you’re browsing available business coaching consultants, it can be helpful to develop a shortlist of the contractors you may want to interview. You can screen profiles on criteria such as:

  • Industry fit. You want a business coach who understands your industry so they can understand your challenges and help you reach your goals. 
  • Project experience. Screen candidate profiles for evidence of business success.
  • Feedback. Check reviews from past clients for glowing testimonials or red flags that can tell you what it’s like to work with a particular business coach.

How to write an effective business coaching job post

With a clear picture of your ideal business coach in mind, it’s time to write that job post. Although you don’t need a full job description as you would when hiring an employee, aim to provide enough detail for a contractor to know if they’re the right fit for the project. 

An effective business coaching job post should include: 

  • Scope of work: From business coaching to content generation, list all the deliverables you’ll need. 
  • Project length: Your job post should indicate whether this is a smaller or larger project. 
  • Background: If you prefer experience working with certain industries or software, mention this here. 
  • Budget: Set a budget and note your preference for hourly rates vs. fixed-price contracts.

BUSINESS COACHES FAQ

What is business coaching? 

Business coaches motivate entrepreneurs and professionals to set goals, face fears, and focus on personal growth. They can serve as an accountability partner to ensure you stay on the path to achieve your goals. 

Here’s a quick overview of the skills you should look for in business coaching consultants:

  • Business coaching
  • Strong written and verbal communication 
  • Motivational speaking
  • Industry-specific expertise (e.g., digital marketing, social media management)

Why hire business coaches?

The trick to finding top business coaches is to identify your needs. Do you personally need help formulating growth strategies that will allow you to reach your business goals? Or are you in the self-help and coaching space yourself and could use some business coaches to assist in the creation of content, products, or services? The cost of your project will depend largely on your scope of work and the specific skills needed to bring your project to life. 

How much does it cost to hire a business coach?

Rates can vary due to many factors, including expertise and experience, location, and market conditions. 

  • An experienced business coach may command higher fees but also work faster, have more-specialized areas of expertise, and deliver higher-quality work.
  • A contractor who is still in the process of building a client base may price their business coaching services more competitively. 

Which one is right for you will depend on the specifics of your project. Have a brilliant business idea in mind? But not sure how much money will it take to bring your idea to life? Upwork's Free Startup Cost Calculator can help you estimate the cost required to set up a Startup business
