    C-Level DNA - Angel/VC Hacker - Business Growth Strategist

    United States - Tests: 10 - Portfolio: 2

    Every successful business begins with one person and a vision. Inevitably, that vision must segue to a strategic plan and focused execution. This is a space I've successfully lived in for over 20 years. I assist in developing Business, Strategic, and Operational plans. I help prepare companies for raising capital, and where practical, provide introductions. I help recruit top management. My strengths lie in business planning, short-long term strategies, and sourcing talent. I can take role as an advisor, collaborator, and/or team member to execute plans and strategic initiatives. I help clients deliver positive results to their bottom line, take them from "marginal to viable", and often I help position them for a high(er) probability of an 'exit' when the time is right. I help deliver organized, business-focused narratives and messaging that inform internally as well as externally to vendors, clients or investors. Whether a start up, early stage, or middle market, I approach every engagement in the same manner. I first establish an understanding of the business as it exists today. I review the current business structure. I peel back the layers to clearly assess the business, financials, market dynamics, team, and strategy. I look at the business in its current iteration and then sit down with you to discuss both the 'big picture' and what the goal line looks like to you. Early on, we may well reach a point where I share less-than-good news; There's still work to be done. But it is at this point where I see clients reach a level of cognitive realization, who understand and agree with my position or feedback, and that's where things can start to get exciting. Engage me on an initial consultation (no fee) regarding your business goals and strategy. The outcome of that dialogue will tell us both if there's a fit and whether it makes sense to engage in a mutually beneficial relationship to advance your goals. Michael

    Voice Talent - US English, native speaker, neutral accent

    United States - Tests: 12 - Portfolio: 4

    (NOTE: Rate is for one hour of finished product. I will adjust this rate to fit your project!) I am building my portfolio on the strength of nine years of on-air and production experience in radio. Please review the jobs I have produced to date. USA born, raised, and based. Neutral accent, thanks to broadcasting school. Mature adult male voice, moderately deep, definitely authoritative. I have experience in various industries and professions. Technical jargon does not scare me. Foreign and regional pronunciations are not an issue. I am capable of utilizing medical terminology. I use Mixcraft 7 recording software and a professional desktop microphone, both installed in an up-to-date PC with ample resources. This set-up is in my home office/studio, and I control the background noise. If I cannot shut it off or admonish it to stay quiet, I can equalize it out of the track. My work ethic is simple - if I have the script, I need to get it recorded now. I will tell you that I can turn a project around in 24 hours, but don't be surprised to receive it sooner than that. College degrees in Marketing/Management and Business Administration, both with high academic honors. Genius IQ - former member of Mensa. You can let someone else learn and make mistakes on your time, or you can hire me.
