    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.

    Josh Smith

    Marketer, Copywriter, Business Consultant, Social Media Consultant

    Australia - Last active: 05/25/2013 - Tests: 7

    Hi I'm Josh, I'm a young, Australian entrepreneur still paving my way but I have very particular skills in many areas and what better way to show it than to undersell myself on oDesk and expand my network and abilities by adding tremendous value and trust that the rest will look after itself in time! For a young guy I have a pretty good business acumen about me that I work to expand everyday and as a result it makes me a sharp thinker with an eye for marketing, business development concepts, including project planning, and copywriting. I really do pride myself on my ability to write great content, especially copy. I'm fantastic as a sound board and concept builder and I'm really looking to expand my work portfolio here on oDesk by exceeding your expectations and doing it at the rate of a 3rd world contractor is the gamble I'm willing to take to get ahead and further myself in the long run.. For your knowledge I'm currently teaching myself WordPress, I have a particularly good knowledge with social media and social media strategy, PARTICULARLY for people with existing brands, businesses, and especially those that have "foot traffic" that come through.. (you can ask me more about that if you want- happy to elaborate).. I have good skills on camera, I have done video shoots before with several companies using myself as the front man in case that was also an option.. And to top it all off in case it's any help I'm a national speaker in Australia on the topic of memory improvement, particularly in the field of business. That's pretty much me.. I hope to work with you soon. I am available on an hourly rate, or agreed lump sum per job. Happy to negotiate.
