    Chelsea Dibble: Writer

    United States - Last active: 25 days ago - Tests: 3 - Portfolio: 2

    I am an extremely passionate writer and an excellent wordsmith. Much of my writing is witty, conversational, intelligent and unique; the stuff that isn't is being edited at the moment. I can write an upstanding non-fiction or informative piece or a compelling fiction piece. I also try to follow these ideals in my daily life: My best work is ahead of me. Get things done. Edit. Live each day with discipline. Apologize quickly and often. Write thank you notes. Listen to big ideas. Think of big ideas. Checklists are extremely rewarding. Write 1000 words a day for fun. Practice. If something can't be seen creatively, move to a different angle and look again. Everyone is their own protagonist. Respect that. Take responsibility for everything you do. Be a Renaissance man. Wear as many hats as possible for a few years. Specialize in something after those few years. Be annoyingly curious. Edit. Some of the topics I love writing about include: travel, health and fitness, finances, advice, fiction, advertising, small business marketing, heuristics, hiking, mountaineering, self-help, fashion, music, weddings and pedagogy.

    Nonprofit 501c3 Tax Exempt Status: Idea to Reality

    United States - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 4

    I am author of the Do Your Own Nonprofit 51-book state series and Nonprofit Touchdown: Winning the 501c3 Game Against IRS. Also founder of Pasture Valley Children Missions and Owner of Chalfant Eckert Publishing, a traditional publisher with hybrid qualities allowing authors to keep their rights and royalties while enjoying world-class publishing services. I can take your idea for a nonprofit organization, even if it is only an idea, and turn it into a reality quickly. The paperwork and process are intimidating, but not to me. Let me help you get it finished so you can get to the mission you are on to make the world a better place! I put my rates in at $50 an hour. For new U.S. nonprofits less than 27 months old with annual revenue this minute of less than $50,000 and assets less than $250,000, that hourly rate translates to 2 hours total for the state and federal paperwork. The exception is for schools, hospitals, churches. That paperwork is much more involved and will require a closer look and a conversation to come up with what is fair and gets the job done. In any case, I am fair, reasonable, know what I am doing, don't waste my time or yours, and provide quality work. Are you are writer? Want to know your actual publishing potential? Need a ghostwriter, content or developmental editor, copy editor or proofreader, publicist? Chalfant Eckert Publishing has them all at a fair price for GREAT work. Some of our authors have been publicized into Best Seller status and have made appearances on national syndicated talk shows. We are good at what we do, we have to be. I own the company and I won't settle for anything less! LOTS of references available upon request for nonprofit services and publishing, including attorneys. What are you waiting for? It is time to get started!

    I had worked as a teacher both in a classroom and on-line settings for more than twelve years. Within the span of certain years in teaching, I was promoted twice.

    Emily Hall

    Content Developer

    United States - Last active: 08/13/2013 - Tests: 2 - Portfolio: 2

    I work as a freelance writer. I attended college at both the University of Southern Mississippi and the University of Alabama, where I majored in psychology. I possess excellent research and writing skills and can write about a wide variety of topics. I chose this career path because writing has always been my strongest skill and feels very natural for me. I am able to work quickly and efficiently under time constraints. I am proficient at many styles of writing, both academic and creative, and if I have not written in a particular style I am adept at picking it up quickly and adapting to it. I am easy to work with, not argumentative, and FAST. I will get the job done by deadline, usually before, and it will be high quality writing and exactly what you asked for. I am a native English writer. My work is 100 percent original and of my own imagination. I do not use spin or re-write programs which leave the work sounding awkward and computer-written. Odesk asked me to supply an hourly rate; however I rarely work for that amount or on an hourly basis. Sometimes I will work for less, if I have a low workload at the time and the project is not overly difficult. Other times I ask for a higher amount based on the difficulty of the project and amount of research required. Please inquire with details of your specific project and I will quote a rate for you.
