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

    United States - Last active: 5 days ago - 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

    You have just 30 seconds to capture your audience. But is your writing laser-targeted at them, grabbing them at the most primal level and compelling them to find out more?

In this brave new age of New Media, your target market is being bombarded from all sides with special deals, offers and advice. It's no surprise Joe Average has developed a Teflon skin! My name is Emma, and I am here to inject some life into your writing.

    Writer/Editor/Public Relations/Marketing Communications

    United States - Last active: 1 month ago - Tests: 6 - Portfolio: 1

    Hi, I've been writing and editing for technical and non-technical industries for more than 20 years. Much of my writing and editing has involved working with others to write what they want to say, or taking a piece written by a knowledgeable person and editing it to make it readable and accurate. Because I've often been a one-person department, I can pretty much do everything related to public relations/marketing/communications--write, edit, design, program development and management, public relations planning, etc. So if you need help with writing and editing, public relations and marketing, I'm the person.
