    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'm Sadiq. I have worked in the fields of business writing and financial consulting for the last ten years. The success of any business starts with a business plan. I'm committed to my client's business growth and expansion through a series of well-written and custom-designed business plans that suit your business goals and objectives. Why should you hire me? I have years of experience in business consulting and business plan writing, with over 500 successfully completed online and offline projects. I have worked with over 200 startups, and my business plan has raised over $50 million in capital funding from banks, investors, and money lenders. I have also helped clients take their business to new heights by optimizing the strategy, researching and analyzing their market and competitive position, and creating a clear and compelling business plan to articulate their opportunity. Organizations I have developed business plans for are:  Restaurants  Automotive  Food Trucks  Cannabis  Caterers  Small Farms  Non-profit Firms  Retail Brands  Food and Beverage  Online Platforms  Fitness and Nutrition  Real Estate  Trucking Company Even if your business isn't on this list, I've probably written business plans for it. The completed business plan will include, but not limited to: • Executive Summary • Company Overview & Description • Mission & Vision Statement • Goals and Objectives • Company's Milestone and Metric Analysis • Products Services • Industry Analysis • Market Trend • Economic Relevance and Analysis • Market Analysis Summary • Competitive Edge and Analysis • Strategy and Implementation • Marketing Plan • Target Market Segment Strategy • SWOT Analysis • Important Charts and Graphs • 3-5 years financial analysis & forecasts Here's what you'll receive: *Business plan delivered in PDF and Word format, including current market analysis, all research, financial spreadsheets, graphs, charts, tables, and visuals *Revisions of business plan after reviewing until satisfaction (within reason) *Consultation during and after the project to assist with funding and implementation One of my delighted clients, whose firm was funded due to the business plan and financial analysis I developed for them, is a testimony to my capacity, experience, commitment, and great knowledge. Here's what they said: “We are a young organization with a lot of potential, good energy, and faith in our vision. However, we have already been turned down by four banks due to a lack of a credible business plan. We were determined not to give up, so we went back to the drawing board and discovered that we needed a successful startup business plan. We concluded after studying Sadiq's proposal that he was the most competent professional to assist us, and we are pleased we chose him. His prices are ideal for small business owners; the quality is better than those charging $3,000, and his willingness to assist is absolutely amazing. You should give this person a chance if you need someone who will appreciate and work hard for each dollar you offer. Sadiq will definitely assist us with more writing jobs in the future. He comes highly recommended by me! " I know exactly what language investors, banks, and the Small Business Administration (SBA) want to hear and read, and I know how to put together a winning business plan. Some of my testimonials on Upwork: - Sadiq succeeded above and beyond my expectations. He took a messy, half-completed business plan and converted it into a gleaming 40-page document with a professional tone, images, lists, and pretty much everything I could want in a business plan! Thank you, Sadiq; I would definitely recommend your work. -I can't express my gratitude to Sadiq enough for his efforts." Sadiq was the definition of professionalism, devotion, and trustworthiness from the start of our project relationship. His continuous communication, honesty in comments, flexibility, and tolerance-even with last-minute modifications and demands-all contributed to the project's success. You've come to the right place if you're looking for a business advisor to help you grow your company. Contact me right away to discuss how we can take your company to the next level. Are you willing to give me a chance? Please let me know how I can help. I can complete the job on time. I like what I do, and I'm pleased that my clients have had such great success.

    Having spent the past 6 years in SaaS sales working as a sales rep and training hundreds of sales reps, I've a clear understanding of building and running the entire sales process. From sales tools to prospecting and qualifying to running sales meetings and closing deals, I've done it all. Although I have experience and results, I constantly am looking to better my skillset to help others. My philosophy is to help and provide clarity instead of just to sell. I believe if you can get clarity and help (whether its from service or someone else) I feel my job has been done. Instead of pushing something that is not a good fit.

    As a corporate CFO, Wall Street banker, Director of Equity Research and senior bank lender who has worked in the US, Europe, Asia and Latin America, I have extensive experience with funding for companies in a wide variety of industries. As a result, I know what a serious investor, commercial bank or other funder will require in a complete investor presentation or business plan before they will even consider providing you with the money you need to build your business. In close collaboration with you I will create these documents and the financial forecasting/budgeting tools you, your investors or your banker require. (A due diligence review by an angel investor group of a recent client's application package said it was "...one of the few combinations of documents that we reviewed from a potential client where all components of a well-thought out business model were present.") Whether you need only a detailed financial model or both a model and full business plan or investor presentation package (including pitch deck, cap table, etc.), you can see samples of previous projects in my Upwork profile. I will build your Microsoft Excel-based financial model using my very robust and fully customizable proprietary template. This template, developed over many years of real world use, helps assure your own forecast's accuracy while also saving you significant time and money in development. (If you don't have access to Excel, let me know and I'll arrange access for you while we work together.) When your financial model is complete, you will be able to change any assumption in the Model and the effects of that change will instantly flow throughout all elements of the Model. Any user can easily test all of the financial effects of any assumptions about revenue, profit margins, unit sales, pricing, operating expenses, fixed assets, equity and debt. You or your investor/banker can use the model to easily do unlimited "What If?" testing, sensitivity analysis or breakeven analysis. (Let me know if you will require inventory tracking or a balance sheet. Most companies I work with do not and it is not included in my project pricing unless you specifically request it.) For the text and graphics (charts, pictures, tables, etc.) in your plan, presentation or pitch deck I will use Microsoft Office software. (If you need specific advanced graphic skills for your document(s), you will need to hire a specialist graphics person.) Typically, the time needed to complete a detailed corporate financial model for one product in one market is about 15 - 18 work hours (add about 20% - 25% for a start-up, subscription-style revenue, a balance sheet or inventory management). A full business plan or investor presentation comprising 15 – 25 pages of text and graphics typically requires 15 - 25 hours of work over three to six weeks to create, depending on how quickly you can respond to my daily questions during the project, the complexity of your business, how much text you add to the business plan versus how much original text I have to create, etc. If you are planning to create a new company whose industry you have no experience in, the time required for completion will typically be greater than for an established company with existing operations. I can begin work on your project as soon as you wish once your payment method is verified by Upwork. If you would like me to sign a non-disclosure agreement (NDA), that is not a problem. If you need a pitch deck, that will flow easily once your business plan or investor presentation is complete. My basic average hourly rate is $69 - $89/hr., depending on the complexity of the work required. Minimum Charges: Per Project - 4.0 hours; Per Work Session: 10 minutes. Premium for urgent completion (8 calendar days or less): 30%, 48-hour Rush Projects: 100% premium. All of my work time, including all phone conversations with you regarding your project, will be tracked by Upwork's software and reported to you by Upwork each Monday. If you are not well-versed in finance or accounting, I will be happy to explain everything to you as we go. That will be very important to your effort to raise money, as your banker or investor(s) will require that you fully understand all of the details of your business. I am committed to your complete satisfaction and will gladly make minor changes to my work within 14 calendar days of completion and closure of the project on Upwork at no additional cost to you. So, let's talk! I am usually in the US Eastern time zone and available to discuss your project at your convenience. I'm happy to have an initial consultation at no cost to you. Will Lyons

    I’m a former investment banker at Deutsche Bank Alex Brown, general partner at Silicon Valley MDV, co-founder of boutique VC firm Fast Ventures, and founder of Jackson Steiner, a micro hedge/alternative asset investment fund. Combined, this amounts to 25+ years of experience in investment banking and venture finance. Today, a few years into early retirement, I help clients create high-level (i) business plans and financial models, (ii) investor pitch decks to support Seed, Series A-D, and venture round fundraising, and (iii) investment memoranda (Reg. D), regulatory filings, and reporting to drive success in their strategy setting, product development, marketing, and fundraising. Recent Client Successes: • Wander.com secured a combined $30 million in its Seed, Series A, and venture rounds from top-tier VCs such as QED Investors, RedPoint, Susa Ventures, and others. They also procured a $100 million line of credit from Credit Suisse on Dec 1, 2022 . • Wander Atlas launched the first and only vacation rental REIT (Real Estate Investment Trust) raising $100 million in an exempt Reg D offering in Q1 2023. • CoinPanel closed its £10 million Series A round in Q1 2023. But don’t take my word for it; feel free to look them up (e.g., on Crunchbase, Forbes, Bloomberg). Other clients I worked with include Anthem Gold, BMW Group, CoinPanel, Neil Mandt (Crime Door), OnePak, PlantLife, Sharekey, Spotify, Viddoze, Wander.com, and many others. I would love to hear from you to discuss your project. I'm a native English speaker. I'm fluent in German and proficient in French. So, how about it? I’m looking forward to speaking. Karl A. Mohr

    If you are looking to develop financial projections for a small business, I'm your guy! Let me help you secure the funding you need to start or grow your business. In my 25+ years as a Certified Economic Development Finance Professional, I've helped my clients obtain over $498 Million in financing on projects that range from $10,000 to $15,000,000. Areas of Expertise: - Comprehensive Financial Projection development (Income Statement, Cash Flows, Balance Sheet, Industry Ratio comparisons, Lender Ratio calculations and supporting statements) - Loan Program Identification. I can help you determine which loan programs are the best fit for your industry and your stage of business. - Lender Identification. Through my knowledge of the SBA lending programs, I can give you a list of the 5 most active banks in your community for obtaining SBA financing (these can also be great lending partners for non-SBA loans as well!). Not only can this information be sorted by your community, but I can also query the data by your industry type...helping you to find the lenders most interested in making loans to businesses just like yours! - Business Plan Development / Business Plan Review. The best business plans are written by the entrepreneurs themselves. I am glad to assist you in this process by providing you with tools to get a rough draft started and then will review your business plan to ensure that it will meet the standards of your lender. - Business Purchase Review. Through Industry Trade databases, I can review a business that you may be interested in purchasing. Business Purchase reviews would include analysis of historical financials, review of trends and key performance ratio, Industry Benchmark comparisons and Financial Projections. In addition, can evaluate the seller's asking price to compare to the industry standards for the subject business, which provides you an understanding of the value for negotiations with the seller. My goal is to have you prepared to meet with your lenders at the conclusion of our relationship. I will use your information as well as my own research to build the financial projections in an interactive Excel template customized to your business needs and will provide you PDF reports to share with your lenders. In a situation where you have already gathered the basic information about your venture, we can often complete the projection process within a week, eliminating delays with getting to the bank as your next step! Some testimonials from my local clients: “Mark was very helpful and instrumental in our ability to obtain the financing needed to start our company. I would highly recommend it to any entrepreneur looking to start a business.” - Dan B. “Your experience is bar none the best! We never would have been able to get into business without you! Keep up the great work! First Class! Awesome! We may be looking into other business ventures as well and would love to use your services again!” - Brian W. “Mark was a huge help in getting us up and going on time. He was very knowledgeable and always had things prepared on time. It was a pleasure working with him!” - Shawn E.

    Since 2015, I have been actively involved in sales, partnerships, and business development. My journey began with CarGo, a startup that currently dominates the transportation industry in Serbia. As part of the team, we created a sales strategy that resulted in over 1000 partnerships. Later on, I joined OpticPower and led a team of 10 BDRs working for various clients from various industries (Cybersecurity, Marketing & Advertising, Luxury Goods & Jewelry, Automation, Computer Software, Leisure, Travel & Tourism, Event, and Construction). The work was oriented toward creating a go-to-market strategy that will help them acquire new customers. I also had the privilege of being part of Snappt, an amazing startup that aims to reduce fraudulent applicants in the Real Estate industry. During my tenure, we grew from 50,000 units to over 1M units of monthly subscribers using our software. I currently hold multiple positions: Business Development Manager at ForesightWorks, Director of Business Development at a law agency in the Bahamas, and Special Advisor to two startups in their early stages.

    - - - - - REVIEWS - - - - - 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟"Aja is an exceptional program and project manager, collaborator, teammate, visionary, and executor. She'll take a vision you share with her and make it a reality, but even better than you could have articulated. She's precise in her work, with a critical eye for detail, both in terms of editing and documenting but also in scoping out longterm projects. She is able to balance holding people accountable, while being adaptable to changes as they inevitably arise. Working with Aja over the past year and a half has been a privilege, and I could not recommend her higher for any project." ~ Lacey J Cope; Head of Coaching & Development, Insight Data Science ____________ 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟"The ability to methodically think through difficult decisions and swiftly take action is an invaluable quality that’s extremely hard to teach, but something I look for in just about everyone I work with - Aja has this in spades. Her superpower is the ability to take the wheel of a veering ship and get it back on course. In particular, she took a developer project that was months overdue (aka a sinking ship) and reconciled / closed it out within several weeks. Coupled with her business acumen, strong self-motivation and leadership capabilities, she’s a unique talent and a genuine joy to work with." ~Jonathan Barshop; Co-founder of Lemonpie.fm - - - - - EXPERIENCE - - - - - * 3+ years fractional COO experience managing B2B consulting firm * 15+ years Project Management experience in Fortune 500 corporations * 15+ years Business Systems Analyst experience implementing and testing Human Resources systems - - - - - TOP SOFT SKILLS - - - - - ~ Prioritization ~ Disciplined ~ Driven ~ Self-starter ~ Initiator ~ Critical Thinker ~ Researcher - - - - - MORE ABOUT ME - - - - - I am passionate about letting my work speak for me. This means that the quality of my work will be top tier as I do my best to complete work on time, clearly, and exactly as desired. I am an experienced ex-Corporate Business Systems Analyst and Project Manager with a focus on business systems. I, now, use my professional and personal experiences to support coaches, authors and therapists launch their thought-projects! My knowledge runs the gamut, my focus and zone of genius are in taking your idea, designing a project plan and executing on it through: ➡️ Project management: design, execute, manage (including team management) ➡️ Systems management: implementation, testing and administration ➡️ Process management: design, documentation and training I have worked remotely for 15+ years and understand the dynamics of remote work in order to have clear communication and goal accomplishment as a dispersed team. I am your Project Management Conductor. You work with me and I manage the rest! Message me today and let me know what project you have in mind. I'll work with you to identify how I can best help you bring it to life! - - - - - ABOUT YOU - - - - - YOU... ~ have a systems/process issue that needs solving/creating/administering asap. **I'll jump in to understand where you are and where you want to get to. I'll create a plan to let you know my suggestions on how to get there and then I'll get to work DOING IT.** ~ put together courses/fellowships/programs and that's your focus! You need someone who can manage the details to help you get it "out there" fully, in your vision, and set up the processes so you can run it repeatedly with less work to do each time. **Details are my thing; I can't help it! I also love courses and fellowships/programs; they fascinate me. I will help you do the administrative, content creation, web and systems tasks needed to make your course seamless and easily repeatable. ~ are a big picture visionary and the details just aren't your thing. You know to make it happen you need someone paying attention to the details. **I will help you think through, plan out and implement the details. I will also help you level-set to figure out what can be done now and what should be done later. ~ work in a department in a large company, own a small business or are a solopreneur! You desire to stay focused on your "work zone" and get someone else to help with the other work. **I have maneuvered in these spaces and get how they all work. By working in my work zone, I get to help you stay in your zone! I'm also a great sounding board! I will collaborate with you so we can both do this effectively and make it enjoyable. ~ You understand the dynamics of working with contractors and respect those dynamics. **I have to say this here, unfortunately, because I see it a lot on Upwork. Contractors are not tied to time blocks or locations nor do they need to provide personal emails or phone numbers. I believe in high integrity for both parties. I love clients who meet w/me (regularly) then set me free to work! I look forward to working with you!
