    Writer | Researcher | Entrepreneur Hacking the Future of Business

    United States - Last active: 07/20/2014 - Tests: 2

    I am a writer, researcher, and entrepreneur hacking the future of business. I write dense reports for entrepreneurs and executives who want to disrupt traditional industries and gain key insights to the shifts of culture and business. I've spent the last decade studying the movements and transformation of ideas, culture, and society. What is "modern business design"? Most companies have responded to the radical cultural and economic shifts of the last decade by getting a Facebook page or a corporate Twitter account. At a growing rate, they're realizing this isn't enough. Their sales are down or flat, their talent acquisition and (especially) retention is low, and often their industry as a whole is suffering. They know they have to change something, but they can't put their finger on it. And they're certainly not willing to bet their company on it. With a decade of research and experience, I'm helping these companies go back to the drawing board, reconsider their overall business goals and structure, and create actionable adjustments to set the course of their company on the upstream in their market. It's not operations consulting, business coaching, or social media strategy. It's business design--based on a modern value-system, a modern mindset, and a modern global economy. I've been involved in a variety of projects across multiple industries. While my main work is currently focused on modern business design, I have the skills, experience, and resources to effectively help entrepreneurs and companies with the following: Writing, Proofreading, Editing, Market Research, Marketing Strategy, Social media strategy, startup consulting, corporate culture initiatives, innovation workshops, strategic planning, process improvement, Technology strategy consulting and CIO services, and WAN (wide area network) planning and consulting. While these may seem quite diverse, I've had hands-on experience and demonstrable results with each as a graduate student, teacher, a fortune 5000 employee, and an entrepreneur. For those looking for specific interests and passions, here are some of mine: entrepreneurship, startup communities, futurist, technology, alternative health, homeopathy/oriental medicine, raw food, spirituality, philosophy, theology, nature, positive parenting (my daughter is currently 3), social change, politics of business & enterprise, economics, and education.

    Brian Churchman

    Creative Non-Fiction/Fiction Writer and Researcher

    United States - Last active: 01/22/2014 - Tests: 5 - Portfolio: 6

    I am a creative non-fiction writer, editor and traveler with over 100 articles published and all seven continents firmly under my belt. I write with an engaging style and broad vocabulary borne of experience, having traveled and lived in more than 50 countries. Though traditionally focusing on travel writing and short fiction, I have had technical articles, press releases, and research reports published and have done some ghostwriting as well. My scrupulous attention to detail has allowed me the pleasure of proofreading and editing for a number of other writers over the years, while my malleable creativity puts me in a position to write in many styles and genres. The diversity of my abilities stems from my capacity to conduct intensive research in short periods of time and from my colorful background, including a stay at the South Pole and almost 10 cross-continental expeditions now. I love to write and research, and I would love to provide my services to you. Thank you for your interest and time.
