    Inspirational Nonfiction Writer

    United States - Last active: 10 days ago - Portfolio: 10

    I specialize in writing on the topic of the law of attraction. It has been my passion for the last 12 years, and I can write on almost any topic related to it. I am so passionate about it that I even manifested spending hours with one of the main gurus from the movie "The Secret," Dr. Joe Vitale. I am also a huge fan of Esther Hicks and I have spoken with her one on one too. Also, I have technical expertise as I was in the corporate world as a computer programmer for 16 years. In addition, I was a Life Coach for 10 years, so I have a lot of life experience to draw on whenever I help clients to get their projects done. As a computer programmer, I prided myself on producing software code that met the users needs and that had no bugs. Now, I pride myself on producing high quality work as a writer, and doing my best to ensure that my clients are happy.
