    Susan Wright (CLU, ChFC, RHU, REBC,

    Insurance and Annuity Content Specialist

    United States - Portfolio: 74

    "Susan is an amazing writer, very fast, accurate, and reliable. She also knows the financial industry and its language, which is what we need. Thank you Susan!" "She is the insurance guru on Elance. You won't find anyone better..." "Susan exceeded all of my expectations! She is a professional and knows her subject matter. On time and on budget! I highly recommend her service to anyone looking for professional written material, especially in the financial / insurance field. I will use her again for my future projects." You are most likely here because you (or a client) is in need of training or marketing content - and writing for the insurance industry may not be your strong suit. That's ok - you're in the right place. While writing about insurance, annuities, and retirement plans may not keep everyone awake at night, it's something that I've done rather well for nearly 25 years - and I'd be happy to discuss how I can deliver similar results for you and your business, too.

    Expert Writer

    United States - Portfolio: 46

    I deliver high quality content on time at an affordable price. My work is done efficiently and effectively, and I meet clients' needs. I have been freelance writing for years, and I have decided to begin using eLance to manage my working relationships. I am by far the hardest person I know to work for, sometimes so much that I hate being my own boss and having to answer to myself. I take accountability to the next level. If you are looking for someone who is intrinsically motivated to succeed, self-disciplined, and hard working, look no further. I am that red penned English teacher we all dreaded writing for in school. I write well, I know eduction, and I am extremely passionate about doing things right. I think the most productive working relationships are those with clear expectations. By taking the time to get to know what the client wants and expects, productivity becomes efficient and effective. I work hard at achieving this when I am chosen to do any job.

    My strength is the ability to write and edit, illustrate or vocally resonate your story. My approach is simple. Writing, graphics, package design or voice-over production define who you are and how your story will affect other people. Every written word, graphic element, package design or vocal offering has strength to resonate meaning and character.
