United States - Last active: 13 days ago - Tests: 12

For more than 15 years, I have been a writer and editor in many different capacities, from writing white papers on healthcare policy, to founding and editing a literary journal, to editing theses and dissertations for graduate students, to crafting and revising resumes. I am also an attorney, with very strong legal research and writing skills in many areas of the law. Much of my professional experience has been in healthcare policy and law, and I have an excellent grasp of medical terminology and am familiar with a broad range of health topics and issues. In addition, I write literary fiction that has been published widely. My collection of short fiction was published in June of 2014. If it's not listed, I might know it. If I don't know it, I'd love to learn it. I look forward to working with you. (Please note that my fees for legal work are higher than my posted hourly rate, which is my fee for general writing and editing.)

C-Level DNA - Prolific Business Strategist

United States - Last active: 14 hours 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. My strengths lie in visionary business planning and strategy. I can take role as an advisor, collaborator, and/or team member to execute plans or strategic initiatives. I develop Business Plans, Strategic Plans, Operational plans, create financials, and help recruit top management. I help clients positively deliver 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 and to external stakeholders, 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

Patent Attorney with Contract Law and Intellectual...

United States - Last active: 12 days ago - Tests: 8 - Portfolio: 1

PATENT ATTORNEY. CONTRACT LAWYER. BUSINESS MANAGER. STRATEGY, You need some legal help fast. And you don't want to drive downtown and pay a city lawyer $750/hour. So you've come here to find a lawyer just as good who will charge you only ONE TENTH of that going rate. Right? REALLY??!! WELL, YOU'RE IN LUCK!! Why am I offering you such a crazy deal? First, because I am bootstrapping a startup company to solve human disease and I need just enough money to pay for gas, buy printer ink at Staples, and pay my software coders on oDesk. So, you help me and you'll be helping humanity!! Second, I don't like chasing clients for payment, so the oDesk hourly pay structure solves that problem well! (I prefer hourly to fixed contract!) And, third, because I don't want to work in a law firm downtown. Been there. Done that. So, how can I help you? What busines or legal advice do you need? Do you have a nifty product idea? An invention you want to patent? Or a contract or agreement to get written and negotiated? And, if you are in Massachusetts (or your legal problem is in this state), then I can help with almost any other type of legal problem, too. --- immigrations, employment, contracts, licensing, negotiation, corporate, trademarks, copyright, patents, family, real estate, ... you name it ALSO, BUSINESS PLANNING AND STARTUPS!! Let me help you draw up a business plan, evaluate your business model and build a growth strategy for your start-up company. Need help analyzing voluminous and complex information? Did I mention that I have a Ph.D. in science and can do complex data analysis? Do you have complex employment relations or corporate problems? ------------------------------------------------------------- LOOJL ------------------------------------------------------------ Law Offices Of Justin Lancaster ------------------------------------------------------------- -- IP services for customers in any of the United States -- General business coaching and strategy development -- 35 years of legal experience in many branches of law -- Legal counseling, contract drafting, review and editing -- Negotiation services I've served in executive management positions in more than eight high-tech startup companies and can provide valuable sales, marketing, business development, strategy and operations assistance.
