    Published Novelist - Ghostwriter - Consultant - Editor

    United States - Tests: 6 - Portfolio: 39

    Ghostwriting is a confidential collaboration and a labor of love. It's a dedication to You. It takes time, balance, dedication, soul, and generous amounts of coffee. You've come to the right place. I studied English and Business at GMU; at 22, I earned my M.F.A. in Creative Writing (3-year program completed in 2 years while working) Summa Cum Laude, GPA: 4.0/4.0. I've completed writing and research fellowships and won awards such as the Jim Jackson Prize in English. During my academic career, I taught as a graduate and research assistant. Since graduation, I've worked extensively as a freelancing ghostwriter and copywriter (primarily book manuscripts), accumulating a portfolio of 80+ projects and superb ratings. Clients have included: book publishing houses, top motivational speakers and coaches, doctors, worldwide business leaders, students, and entrepreneurs from around the globe. My portfolio is extensive and eclectic; I'll tackle any job as long as it tickles my passion. Give me the skeleton of your thoughts, and I'll type such life into the manuscript as to make the words pulse on the page. My writing is clean, professional, and high quality. So. Are you looking for a Mercedes of literature, or a Yugo? . . . http://thewritequality.wordpress.com/ http://art-of-war-novel.com/

    Business Consulting

    United States - Tests: 1 - Portfolio: 17

    I create plans and models for entrepreneurs and startups. My documents help them pitch to investors, banks, and potential business partners. Many of my clients are founders, organizations and companies seeking to create business and marketing plans, business models, full pitch decks or online presentations. Among my past clients I have financial institutions, crowdfunding site, technology startups, food distribution companies, entertainment ventures, media websites and green energy companies, plus many nonprofit organizations, in the US, Canada, Europe, MENA region and Australia. My best clients are the ones with new and disruptive ideas. In my process I ask many questions, do a lot of research, propose new ideas, explore diverse channel of distribution, provide a lot of graphics, create models using a canvas business model system, run numbers and create financial projections. At the end, I do everything I can to create useful and powerful documents for my clients. "OFF-LINE" I have my own business consulting firm working near New York City - www.glaction.com. I have an MPA from Cornell University (USA) and I speak English and Spanish. --- MY PHILOSOPHY on writing business plan is simple: every business plan is unique and every client deserves a professional and timely service. I do not over promise, I do what I said I will do. Simple. Some business and marketing plans are designed to get a loan from a bank, others to get potential investors excited about a project. Most of the time is a tool to raise money, but all the time should be an instrument to guide your future. In my work I get inspiration from big angel and venture capitalist firms, such as the giant investor Sequoia Capital; that has invested in companies like Apple, Google, YouTube, PayPal, Instagram, Yahoo!, Atari, Kayak, Zappos, and LinkedIn. I always suggest my potential clients to read what they are asking from people that want to get funds from them: www.sequoiacap.com/ideas They are not asking for a 100-page business plan. They believe that the best founders are clear thinkers. --- MY PROCESS is also simple. I start with your ideas and your initial data and work until you are completely satisfied. I want to invite you to see my process of writing business plans here: http://goo.gl/ugB0l1 Before you hire me I give you a very clear plan of what I will do for you, step by step, with a feasible timetable. Again, I do not over-promise, I do what I said I will do. By hours, this is a breakdown of my typical development process: 1) Business Consulting (2-6 hours) 2) Market (Research and Plan) (4 to 8 hours) 3) Financials (4 to 10 hours) - 3 to 5 years of Sales, Profit & Loss, Cash Flow and Balance Sheet forecasts. 4) Writing (8 to 16 hours) - following the format of California VC firm Sequoia Capital and adding charts, maps, graphics, etc., to clarify your business pitch. My tools are 1)Internet for research, 2) Skype for communication, 3) ASANA to organize my work, 4) Excel to plot all financial projections, 5) PowerPoint to design pitch decks, and 6) a few RedBulls to work overnight and on time. Everything will start with a Skype chat and we go from there. --- TERMS I work around your budget. I know that startups are not cash cows. Because every plan is unique, I like to discuss final payment terms during the interview process. My original bid is a guide for the client, and is based, usually, on a week of work (about 40 hours). Depending on the nature, format and stage of your business project, my work could take about a week and in some cases several weeks. My hourly rate is $100, and usually will take me 24 to 32 hours of work to develop a comprehensive plan. If you hire me as a fixed rate contract, I operate on a 3-payment basis. The first 30% is due at project start, a second payment of 30% at an agreed upon middle milestone, and the final 40% upon completion of the project. --- SAMPLES Looking for samples of my work? Here is a list of some of my past projects: IT service start-up in Germany, data center in Uganda, online food service platform in Brazil, crowdfunding site in California, niche social network in the UK, nonprofit in Mozambique, real estate fund in Taiwan, TV production company in Los Angeles, agro-business in Nigeria, entertainment company in Holland, publishing service in Spain, nonprofit in Washington DC, beverage company in the UK, entrepreneurial education center in Dubai, pharmaceutical start up in Lebanon, electric company in Saudi Arabia, and several iOS native app start-up in Australia, Ukraine, Puerto Rico and USA.

    PhD qualified researcher and writer

    United Kingdom - Tests: 2 - Portfolio: 8

    I am a PhD qualified researcher, writer, and co-founder of an international award-winning social enterprise, Unseen Tours in London. I provide high quality online research services, expert advice in constructing methodologies for social research projects, assistance with academic, social campaign or blog content, and a skilled hand with proofreading and editing. Having worked for a number of research centres, I can also offer an efficient grant and tender writing service. An academically trained researcher with an established track record of researching and writing published reports and articles for diverse audiences, I can gather, analyse and synthesise information in an efficient and comprehensive way. This includes extensive experience analysing qualitative data using Atlas and NVivo. In addition, I can help you if you are campaigning on a particular social or environmental issue. Having a parallel life as a social entrepreneur - check out Unseen Tours in London, Joint Overall Winner of the Virgin Responsible Tourism Awards in 2011 - has meant that I straddle both the worlds of academic research and practice 'on the ground'. This means that I can cut through the jargon and give your campaign the weight it needs while keeping your message sharp and clear.
