With a Masters degree in English Composition (specialization in professional writing and linguistics) and an Interdisciplinary BA in English, Marketing, and Entrepreneurship, I get words. I've worked as a professional proofreader for a division of Random House, taught college freshmen how to write, published academic articles, presented at national and international conferences, managed a local venture fund (evaluating and funding tech startups), and now primarily do online & print marketing for small businesses, copy edit a variety of projects (academic and professional), and coach business owners who are growing business while having a life. This multitude of experience gives me a holistic view of professional writing and all that it can entail. Whether you need a "hand-holder," proofreader, editor, marketing content advisor, native-English point of view (and one who understands the linguistics of many other languages), or someone to craft a well-written, polished piece of writing for you, I can probably help!

Hello and thank you for visiting my profile page. My name is Mike Davis and I'm a seasoned start-up executive and project manager. I have used ODesk for the past 3 years to build and manage my own teams. I've spent well into the 6 figures and consider myself an Odesk Power User now. In addition to running my own start-up, primarily through Odesk I often get asked questions about out sourcing development and building virtual teams. I have 3 years worth of experiences and have worked with dozens of developers, designers, research assistants and social media experts. I am happy to share my lesson's learned so you don't have to make the same mistakes I did, and get you to maximum efficiency as quick as possible. Whether you are looking for a simple consultation before doing it yourself and want my help in setting up a team to full on project management, I am your guy. I have a network of people to suggest who have done amazing work at great prices and can get your team up and running quickly with transparent and clear project management tools like Trello. I am available on Google Hangout and Skype and am available for video conferencing, instant messaging or email. I look forward to helping you get your project off the ground and bringing your ideas to life. I did it myself on Odesk and can help you.
Is your business exactly where you want it to be? You don’t have any any problems to solve or improvements to make? Is your business perfect? Probably not. Even those of us who have taken on the challenge of helping others improve, and sometimes transform, their businesses have problems and work to improve on a daily basis. (Shhhh!, don’t tell anyone, but we make a lot of mistakes too. Good mistakes that still move us forward and even some where we ask ourselves what we were thinking. But the progress is always forward and tomorrow always turns out to be better than yesterday.) So if you want to improve on any or all of the following then we can help you without a shadow of a doubt: • Revenue generation • New sources of revenue • Profit • Costs • Quality • Customer service / satisfaction • Time • Frustration • Employee engagement • Delays • Problem Solving • Control • Processes and systems • Value creation and delivery It is not magic. Everything we do is something you could do all on your own. You could teach yourself and do it. The problem is that you are running a business and probably don’t have the time to learn and even less time to make costly mistakes and missteps. We all need help with things for which we either do not have the time, resources, or talent. If we did we would be perfect. No one is. If you want to generate more revenue (and profits) through better marketing then we can help. If you want improved profits, problems solved permanently, fewer surprises, and happier customers (or patients, clients, patrons, etc.) then we can help. If you want to free up more of your time to do what you do best and enjoy while letting others do the same and still enjoy the increased revenue and profits and reduced problems, then we can help.
