    Consultant/Writer/Researcher

    United States - Last active: 2 days ago - Tests: 6 - Portfolio: 21

    Recognized top 5% oDesk contractors. I have the skills and experience necessary to complete any of the following jobs: complex research, writing, editing, basic websites, business consulting (online marketing strategies for small businesses) or other similar projects. One of my specialties is helping people develop well-written informational content that brings organic and natural traffic to their sites. I provide writing, editing and formatting services for online website content. [Note - if you are trying to view my actual website from my profile, I am in the process of changing hosting providers so my site is temporarily unavailable. As a result, some of the links in my odesk profile many not be working. Just ask if you need to see more work samples and I will get them to you.] I am fortunate to have a gift with writing and truly enjoy it. Over my lifetime I have met many people with brilliant ideas and thoughts who struggle with getting them into writing in a way that effectively conveys the message. I have a passion for helping people take their ideas and putting words on paper so that the ideas can be shared with others. There is a great sense of satisfaction that I get when a client tells me “that’s exactly what I wanted to say!” Although I have not been formally hired as a writer until recently, I have an extensive writing history. I am conscientious and thorough in all that I do, often going above and beyond employer expectations. I have an inner passion for knowledge and answers. If I don't know something, want new information or want to learn how to do something, I do whatever is necessary to find the answers. My preferred jobs are advanced Research and Writing projects that require someone with great attention to detail and an analytical approach to finding information, not just "collecting data." {Don't get me wrong, I enjoy the data collection process, but typically simple research jobs don't pay equivalent to my experience & expertise.} Outside of freelance work as a writer, I provide business consulting, web design and online marketing services for small businesses, "from one small business owner, to another." As an entrepreneur who has been through the struggles of learning how to succeed when resources were limited, I understand what it is like to build a small business from the ground up. My formal training is in Psychology and this background gives me a unique perspective on the world of marketing and behavior. I have been a work-at-home mother since 2002 and absolutely love the freedom that being self employed provides. Let me be upfront - if you are looking for someone to work at "outsourcer rates" or to provide any work that is unethical or "black hat," then I am not that person. But if you are looking for a person who will provide HIGH QUALITY and ORIGINAL work, completed by someone with both an attention to detail and a creative mind, then that's me. I stand by all my work and won't work on anything that I wouldn't be proud to put my name on. As a business consultant, it is my job to Research and Find Solutions for my clients, as well as find information relevant for their business/industry. As a web/internet consultant, with knowledge of how content and keywords affect search engine results, I have a full understanding that there is "much more to be found" beyond the first Google results pages. On the educational level, I have a Master's Degree "plus" in Counseling Psychology from a school that was extremely research oriented, preparing students for Doctoral Programs. Not only did the regular coursework require routine research and report writing, but the program included completion of a Master's Thesis. I also have an undergraduate minor in statistics. Prior to becoming a freelancer, I have over twenty years of experience working with children in social and school settings. My specialty was working with children with emotional and learning disabilities. As the Director of a Youth Shelter, I also have experience supervising and managing teams. In 2002, after 20 years in the corporate world, working full time "plus," I made the decisision to change focus. With these New Priorities I started down the path of being a "work from home mother" (WAHM) and home business owner. "Enjoy Life Enterprises" is the umbrella for all of my entrepreneurial and freelance endeavors. Because I am completely self-employed, I have flexibility in the hours that I can provide, based upon what is required. I am located in the United States (North Carolina) and can be reached by email or if you are US based, we can talk by phone. I have also set up a Skype account if you are outside of the US.

    Senior Project Manager/Product Developer

    United States - Last active: 2 days ago - Tests: 2 - Portfolio: 10

    I have a comprehensive background in product development/project management within the confines of international medical device regulations. I thrive on taking vague ideas and ill-defined needs and turning them into concrete reality. I can start a medical device company from the ground up and I can do it on schedule. This includes... From a Regulatory perspective: --Initial regulatory requirements analysis for new markets (EU, Brazil, Australia, US, Canada, etc.) --Identification of applicable test protocols (ISO standards, etc.) and management of test houses --Interfacing with regulatory agencies and identifying consultants --Writing of regulatory submissions such as FDA 510(k)s --Quality System development and implementation to required standards (ISO 13485, FDA, CMDCAS, etc.) --Identification of loop holes and temporary workarounds to ease implementation pains and maintain profitability From a Project perspective: --Using good interpersonal skills to keep people motivated and excited --"Conducting the orchestra", developing a logical rhythm of events and ensuring timely completion of tasks --Turning "unknown unknowns" into "known unknowns", forseeing problems before they arise and altering the "orchestra" accordingly --Coordination of teams on an international level --Intelligently focusing energy on tasks with the highest variability, including procurement of additional expertise as necessary --Always keeping an open dialog about the day-to-day changes in the "Good/Fast/Cheap, pick any two but only two of the three" trade-offs in milestone achievement From a Product perspective: --Development of design parameters from organization input (Sales, Marketing, Support, etc.) --Nitty-gritty technical work like engineering drawings/drafting, statistical analysis, resdesigns due to manufacturing constraints, component supplier identification. --Identification, qualification, and day-to-day management of international manufacturers --Design History File/Technical File development and maintenance --Design Transfer for complex electromechanical devices From an Operations perspective: --Part Number/Drawing Number/Revision Control development and implementation --Engineering Change Order workflow and impacts --Purchasing-Manufacturing-Sales-Shipment procedures and throughput --ERP/MRP implementation including workarounds for system limitations I am a strong believer in a person's word. If I tell you I'm going to do something by a certain date that is my word and I'm going to get it done, hell or high-water. I don't mess around: I live on a remote homestead so I grow my own food, build my own structures, fix my own car, brew my own beer. My entire life requires a high level of precision execution every single day, failure is not an option.
