The topics I am most interested in writing about are personal development, motivation, business, health and wellbeing and travel. My background is in health and fitness - I used to be a Personal Trainer, so I have experience of the fitness, nutrition and weight loss industries (please note - I am not interested in any jobs that promote weight loss products). I also have a strong grounding in the field of Entrepreneurship. I'm well educated in internet marketing, list building, lead generation etc. In terms of writing I offer high quality, engaging work written in excellent English, with an awareness of writing for SEO. I am used to making the optimum use of keywords whilst still focusing on writing for real people. I can write in a formal manner and also a friendlier, chatty tone, depending on the requirements of the project. One of my current jobs on Odesk is writing blog articles for a well known self development blog. I have my own blog about business and I've contributed many articles for various other websites and blogs including Datemypet and Zenspiration. This has helped me hone my creative writing skills. I'm very competent at internet research and I am happy to research and gather information where required. I am interested in 'Intermediate' and 'Expert' level projects. I would love to hear from you if you think I would be a good fit for your project. Sample work can be found on my profile or on request.
