Website: www.thehealthycopywriter.com The Truth About Diet, Exercise, and Weight Loss An estimated 70 percent of all adults in the United States are overweight or obese, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. That means that in the U.S. alone, 154.7 million adults have a weight problem. Many attempt to follow fad diets, take dietary supplements, or even resort to weight reduction surgeries to lose body fat and change the way they look. But most fail. 2 Things Health and Fitness Content Must Provide These approaches to weight loss can serve as a starting point for people who want to lose weight, boost their metabolism, get in shape, and build muscle. But in order to be successful at weight loss, body transformation, or any muscle-building plan, there are two critical components that need to be part of the content you provide your readers: Education and motivation. Most people who want to lose weight, decrease body fat or build muscle, don’t quite know where to start or what to do. The result is a pattern of yo-yo dieting, weight loss and weight gain, or half-hearted attempts at progressive muscle building and weight-loss workouts. But it doesn’t have to be that way. Evidence-Based Content for Everyday Readers From a content perspective, if you want to tip the scale in the right direction and really help people achieve their health and fitness goals, you need high-quality, educational, engaging, and content-rich information blended with a little motivation to help them stay in the fight, keep trying, and put in the effort to make lasting lifestyle changes. Season that with evidenced-based research on diet and exercise, and your followers will keep coming back for more. Hire Me My name is Evan Jensen. I have a master’s degree in journalism and more than a decade of experience as a reporter, editor, and freelance writer for newspapers, magazines and corporate clients. As a kid, I watched my obese parents try every diet in the book without success, and resolved not to take the same path. I’ve finished 30 plus marathons and ultra-marathons, including a 100-mile mountain endurance run. And I’ve written thousands of articles in my writing career, including many about diet, exercise, fitness, nutrition, chronic disease, and preventive care. If you have writing or editing needs for articles, e-books, blogs, newsletters, press releases, feature stories, Q&As, case studies, marketing campaigns, or anything else, give me a shot at delivering high-quality content and making a good first impression. - Evan

Certified English - Chinese Translation Expert

China - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 6 - Portfolio: 8

"By far one of the best online experiences I've ever had. A consummate professional and highly recommended." "Ivy provides accurate, fast and high-quality translations. Unlike other translators, she puts in the time and effort to thoroughly understand the source material before beginning." "My colleague in China who proofreads Ivy's translations says she does so with great pleasure as the work is excellent!" "She cared as if she was part of the team, not just a contractor doing a task." I am a professional Chinese translator with six years of full-time experience. I move each year between the US and China, and this unique position living and working in both cultures allows me to create especially accurate, localized and contemporary translations. The above testimonials (from my oDesk and Elance profiles) prove that I deliver high-quality translations that make an immediate impact on your global ventures, increasing your profits and making you look good -- in English and Chinese! LANGUAGE PAIRS: • English to Simplified Chinese • English to Traditional Chinese • Simplified Chinese to English • Traditional Chinese to English I am a native Simplified Chinese speaker from Shandong province, China, where we speak and write a very standard Mandarin similar to that spoken in Beijing. I have studied and written Traditional Chinese for Taiwan since I was young and am highly competent in this language as well; however, as it is not my native language, I ALWAYS provide an independent review of my work by a native Traditional Chinese colleague. I have studied English since I began school, and I taught the language for many years at a private school in China. I now live half the year in the US and half in China, and I read, write and speak English for a US market. However, as English is not my native language, I ALWAYS provide an independent review of my translations into English by a professional English copyeditor to ensure accuracy and a natural translation. SERVICES: • Document Translation • App, Game and Website Localization • Editing • Proofreading • Transcription • Copywriting (Chinese only) I provide professional translations between Chinese and English. I also offer proofreading and editing services, and I am happy to review and critique previous translations into Simplified Chinese. Every document that I translate or software that I localize will be proofread with meticulous detail to ensure the utmost accuracy and quality, and I will firmly calibrate your text for the particular field, tone and target audience. I also contract with a professional translator colleague to provide an independent review of EVERY text that I translate. This independent proofreading is completely free of charge to you; it's at my expense to ensure that I provide the most accurate and highest-quality translation possible! SPECIALIZATIONS: • Marketing Materials • Websites • Education • Travel and Tourism • Business • App and Game Localizations I have solid experience translating everything from technical user manuals to legal contracts to social dating websites. While I am quite capable of working in a variety of fields, over the years I have specialized in the above. I invite you to check out my portfolio on oDesk or on Elance (http://Ivy_Feng.elance.com/) for several Chinese translation samples. I also have multiple references and additional samples available on request. For more glowing reviews from past satisfied clients, please see my testimonials page further down, or on Elance, where I have even more experience (https://www.elance.com/s/ivy_feng/job-history/?t=1&s=rating&o=desc). GUARANTEE: Working with strangers online is a bit of a leap of faith, and even more so when it involves a foreign language! But it doesn't have to be. If you're not totally happy with my delivered translation, I'll happily make UNLIMITED revisions until you are COMPLETELY satisfied -- no hassles! I look forward to hearing from you!

Business Finance Consultant

United States - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 8 - Portfolio: 1

My unique approach to financial management is designed to reveal both insights and opportunities. Building upon a background of National Account Management, Commercial Banking, Brokerage Services, and Senior-Level Financial Consulting, I draw upon a wealth of practical, first-hand experience to benefit clients in the ways that matter most: A broad-based understanding of business finance that achieves defined, sustainable goals. A common theme linking disparate industries at different stages of development and maturity comes courtesy of an understanding of the flow of every dollar, from sales to expense to operating income. Examined through a lens that is customized for every client and each business, and reflects their unique challenges and competitive advantages. The result is what I call Functional Financial Management. It’s not merely the numbers, but the story inside the numbers. Customized, relevant, and with a practical utility that can be nothing short of game-changing. These are also the hallmarks of financial management guidance provided through Business Expedition Partners, the financial consulting firm I founded to offer clients around the world specialized financial consulting. From start-ups to mature companies, it is an honest, hard-working, unrelenting attention to detail that delivers results exceeding expectations. Top 5% Odesk Contractor!
