    I am a writer, researcher, and entrepreneur hacking the future of business. I write dense reports for entrepreneurs and executives who want to disrupt traditional industries and gain key insights to the shifts of culture and business. I've spent the last decade studying the movements and transformation of ideas, culture, and society. What is "modern business design"? Most companies have responded to the radical cultural and economic shifts of the last decade by getting a Facebook page or a corporate Twitter account. At a growing rate, they're realizing this isn't enough. Their sales are down or flat, their talent acquisition and (especially) retention is low, and often their industry as a whole is suffering. They know they have to change something, but they can't put their finger on it. And they're certainly not willing to bet their company on it. With a decade of research and experience, I'm helping these companies go back to the drawing board, reconsider their overall business goals and structure, and create actionable adjustments to set the course of their company on the upstream in their market. It's not operations consulting, business coaching, or social media strategy. It's business design--based on a modern value-system, a modern mindset, and a modern global economy. I've been involved in a variety of projects across multiple industries. While my main work is currently focused on modern business design, I have the skills, experience, and resources to effectively help entrepreneurs and companies with the following: Writing, Proofreading, Editing, Market Research, Marketing Strategy, Social media strategy, startup consulting, corporate culture initiatives, innovation workshops, strategic planning, process improvement, Technology strategy consulting and CIO services, and WAN (wide area network) planning and consulting. While these may seem quite diverse, I've had hands-on experience and demonstrable results with each as a graduate student, teacher, a fortune 5000 employee, and an entrepreneur. For those looking for specific interests and passions, here are some of mine: entrepreneurship, startup communities, futurist, technology, alternative health, homeopathy/oriental medicine, raw food, spirituality, philosophy, theology, nature, positive parenting (my daughter is currently 3), social change, politics of business & enterprise, economics, and education.  less

    11 years of experience as a professional transcriptionist (7 of those years spent working as a freelancer), editor, researcher and paid academic/technical article writer. Seeking ongoing hourly work as a copywriter/editor or administrative or project manager. Typing speed of 120 WPM with a 99.9 % accuracy. For Project Management: Experienced in managing a team of 250+ writers and 15-20 transcriptionists. I also have professional experience within the construction industry (owner and managing partner of American Global Renovations between 2006 and 2010 - commercial and residential construction). I'm extremely organized, driven and efficient. Previous job duties included general HR (recruiting, hiring, training and managing), general accounting duties (payroll, accounts receivable and payable, taxes and so on), marketing (including online marketing and promotion), online presence management (designed and built company websites, wrote and edited content and managed updates), social networking (established following on Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, and with company blogs and articles), document creation and preparation (contracts, bid proposals, invoices, brochures, newsletters, magazine covers, design and compilation, business card design, logo design and branding and so on), and general customer service (via phone, chat, email and in-person). For Transcription: Published author and business owner looking for new personal opportunities (with smaller jobs) and larger jobs to include my transcription team. Experienced in all types of transcription with a focus on focus groups and research interviews. Seeking transcription jobs of any size (experience with managing and completing large jobs of 50 + audio hours). For Writing & Editing: Seeking virtual assistant jobs, writing jobs and editing positions. Experienced in technical writing, article writing, blogging, newsletters, resume writing, letters and inquires, writing queries, academic writing, data entry, research, website design, copywriting, fiction, poetry, children's literature I'm also helped several candidates successfully land employment by writing professional resumes/CVs, assisting with the online job search, producing general and position-specific cover letters, completing online applications and contacting employers online, offering job interview coaching and tips and offering basic training, such as MS Word/Excel, Internet Explorer and so on. I occasionally do voice over work (generally related to business). I'm experienced in writing successful manuscript query letters (my query letters get a good response), professional business letters, legal letters and so on. Background and Experience: Business management, almost all aspects of administrative work, all aspects of the construction business (focusing on hard surface installation, drywall, paint, bidding, bid proposals, human resources and more), sales, travel (international), skincare, health management (focusing on alternative health and weight loss). I've also done extensive research in natural/alternative treatments, focusing on pain management and quitting smoking. I've successfully developed an all-natural quit smoking plan and I've developed several alternative/natural pain management methods (pain oils, creams, mouthwash, etc). My research has been of interest to medical communities in three countries and is ongoing. Currently studying psychology at Argosy University. I have a background with criminal justice administrative work and also do some photography on the side. I have valuable business contacts throughout the world, which can often assist in the timely completion of large projects (professional photographers, authors, editors, printers, website designers, commercial construction contacts, models, makeup artists, freelance writers and so on). I can assist in business setup/management by taking a look at what your immediate and long-term goals are and creating a solid business plan to help you set things in motion. I'm also available to manage this aspect of your business. I'm experienced with creating business plans, marketing plans and can also help with grant proposals and other financial proposals. I've helped several ODesk contractors put together an award-winning profile, write cover letters designed to get a positive response and help with compiling a professional portfolio. I do a lot of different things and my experience comes from not only my own experience owning and managing two successful businesses (and working successfully as a professional writer/editor), but from helping other business owners and freelancers (businesses of all sizes) put together or reorganize a business.  less
