    From Poetry & Lyrics portraying Emotion to Stories from Beyond. Articles, Blogs, Reviews well structured and researched with timely delivery. As we grow older we realize that it is not all about what you have accumulated or where you find yourself, your status or your wealth. The truth be told to be alive is all about the experience, the challenges, opening that new door, living to your full potential! What makes each of us unique, is our creativity, how we perceive people and our surroundings! I have a passion for writing, a deep love for reading and a burning sensation to learn. I have worked in the advertising market for more than 10 years and I am proficient in using MS Word and Corel Draw. I have been writing for 20 years and love it still. I have published 5 poems in different anthologies from 2004 to 2011, through the Poetry Institute. I have also won third place in a lyrics writing contest.

    Multifaceted Virtual Assistant. Business support branch

    Sweden - Last active: 22 days ago - Tests: 17 - Portfolio: 4

    My previous line of work led to the start of a VA business. My goal is to work with what I like and keep up the trend of various tasks. The rate described is my lowest rate, which I usually apply because I sometimes like to do assignments to keep my skills at a recent level, and then that rate apply. On the other hand could other duties require a higher rate. My VA role is one of the multi-skilled, or multifaceted as I use for marketing since I've learned a lot of different skills during the positions I held. I'm very service minded, as I started out as a cashier and office girl and had the privilege to work with people with genuine feeling for service. I find it likable and I also think it makes sense to keep a service minded attitude towards customers. If you see someone without a smile - give them one of your kind of recaps what service is. Additionally to the service offered in the line of work, that is. Later on I've for several years each, held positions as sales secretary, school secretary, administrative consultant, application specialist and web/system developer. Besides having extensive work experience, the studying of sociology, psychology and computer science at an academic level constitutes useful knowledge. Still today I feel at home in almost any constellation of work, I like to do repetitive tasks from time to time, and challenging tasks from time to time. Work satisfaction is important to me, and it means delivering good results, to be of benefit to the receiver. For myself the help and learn part goes a long way. One other thing to mention is that I learned to type at an early age. That skill has been both useful and fun during the years. Besides skills in service and typing, I'm interested in languages, both human and computer. Regarding human language, I write with a fine imagination, do my research and have a splendid vocabulary. Regarding computers, I like to make life easier for end users, and I also focus on usability. Regarding both languages, I also like to enhance the experience for the reader/user. Oh, I nearly forgot (if you're still reading this short essay that is), I also do some graphic designs from time to time. Web design, Logo designs, Business Cards, Newsletter, formatting in Word, layouts in PowerPoint and so on! We need beautiful things! Cheers!

    United States - Last active: 3 days ago - Tests: 2 - Portfolio: 5

    I have been teaching high school English for 20 years. I can write about practically anything. As a high school teacher and writer, I have a solid grasp of grammar and style. I have been teaching writing, and editing student work for many years. I discovered Elance by accident, but I have found it to be great place to be able to write, meet clients, and develop business relationships to meet their needs in an online setting. It has given me a new perspective as a teacher about the importance of writing and communicating. Over the years as a teacher, I have taught practically every subject, from creative writing to American Literature to Mythology. I also advised the school yearbook for several years and my books were awarded top marks in yearbook competitions, with one of them receiving international recognition for its quality and design. I have a BA in English and a MA in Education and I have taken many Master's level courses in journalism.
