    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

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 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

    Who is Cheryl Woodhouse? I’m mom to two beautiful girls. I’ve worked as a high-level Marketing Exec & Consultant for nearly a decade, have been an entrepreneur since my very first business at age 16, and have personally helped over 100 businesses find success.

    With an academic background in accounting and corporate finance, I have 30 years' experience advising companies on matters of financial management, accounting, tax, and quantitative analysis. I was formerly in the public accounting field---on the staff of a CPA firm---for a number of years, specializing in the area of corporate and partnership tax law, but also advising clients of every size and industry on general tax, accounting, and business financial management projects. Migrating from public accounting to a self-employed consultancy business, I've continued to assist clients for the last 19 years as an independent advisor. My clients have represented many different industries and varied business models, as well as being situated across a broad band of the size spectrum. With extensive expertise in corporate financial management, accounting, and business economics, my consultation engagements are focused within these areas, but include projects of nearly any size. The flexibility of being an independent, self-employed advisor permits me great latitude in the nature and scope of the projects in which I assist my clients. Whether the client's need is the one-time development of a simple spreadsheet cash-flow forecast model, or a bit of advice on straightening out an out-of-balance accounting system, or a long-term buyout project involving target analysis and valuation along with deal-structuring advice, I thoroughly enjoy delivering a successful conclusion to the client. As alluded to previously, my consultancy practice over the years has had me assisting clients in a wide range of projects. I have • helped clients develop budgets, forecasts, and computer-based budgeting systems; • engaged in tax research and advisory for issues both simple and complex; • helped companies develop and utilize internal financial analysis functions; • prepared advisory memoranda for clients' attorneys and bankers; • assisted clients involved in buyouts and acquisitions both as sellers and as acquirors; • developed extensive cash-flow and business activity forecast models for use in analyzing and valuing start-up companies and real estate projects; • developed business plans and financing packages used in the successful completion of funding projects; • assisted clients' own accountants and bookkeepers with month-end and year-end closings, including careful analysis of the appropriate journal entries and adjustments required of the specific situation; • developed spreadsheet-based asset depreciation schedules for smaller clients with limited budgets which precluded investment in third-party fixed asset packages; • utilized sophisticated quantitative methodologies to improve clients' own analyses of their asset management and returns, cash flow optimization, balance sheet and operating ratios, valuation of management-decision options, and the like; • assisted clients with understanding and responding to various regulatory requirements such as tax reports and filings, and financial reports for loan covenants and licensing requirements. In summary, I am happy to help clients in projects of any size, from simple consultations involving nothing more than a couple of brief phone conversations, to more involved and extensive projects dealing with complex business finance or accounting issues.  less
