    Expert writing for the busy entrepreneur

    United States - Last active: 4 days ago - Tests: 2 - Portfolio: 31

    You need someone who quickly understands your needs, reviews your materials, asks intelligent questions, understands the answers, and lays out your thoughts and ideas clearly and effectively. You need RESULTS NOW, if not sooner. You don’t have time to educate a generic writer without the background to climb that steep learning curve quickly. “Incredible attention to detail and the ability to thoughtfully lay out complex ideas and concepts into an eBook that will give those with no experience in the subject a primer. Final product was provided ahead of schedule on a busy holiday week. We’re already talking about our next project.” “Opher did an amazing job. Took personal interest and delivered exceptional results. Went above and beyond what was initially agreed, focusing on nothing other than project success. Highly recommended when you want to get things done.” “Another amazing project with Opher! He’s fast, efficient and extremely talented. I'm about to hire him again."

    Psychologist, Academic Writer, Researcher

    United States - Last active: 4 days ago - Portfolio: 1

    20 years of stellar performance reviews and delighted clients. I am a well-published academic author, Applied Research Psychologist, award-winning teacher, and evaluator of organizational programs, policies, and change initiatives. I recently left my faculty position at a University of Wisconsin System school to provide caregiving and support to my parents, so I'm new to Elance, but I'm certainly not new to freelance consulting. I've owned my own consulting business since 1994. Learn more by googling Susan L. Staggs or visiting my LinkedIn page at https://www.linkedin.com/pub/susan-staggs/b/1/a75.
