I create plans and models for entrepreneurs and startups. My documents help them pitch to investors, banks, and potential business partners. Many of my clients are founders, organizations and companies seeking to create business and marketing plans, business models, full pitch decks or online presentations. Among my past clients I have financial institutions, food distribution companies, entertainment start-ups, media websites and green energy companies, plus many nonprofit organizations. My best clients are the ones with new and disruptive ideas. In my process I ask many questions, do a lot of research, propose new ideas, explore diverse channel of distribution, provide a lot of graphics, create models using a canvas business model system, run numbers and create financial projections. At the end, I do everything I can to create useful and powerful documents for my clients. "OFF-LINE" I have my own business consulting firm working from New York City, (EST) but available around the clock. I have an MPA from Cornell University (USA) and I speak English and Spanish. ----- MY PHILOSOPHY on writing business plan is simple: every business plan is unique and every client deserves a professional and timely service. I do not over promise, I do what I said I will do. Simple. Some business and marketing plans are designed to get a loan from a bank, others to get potential investors excited about a project. Most of the time is a tool to raise money, but all the time should be an instrument to guide your future. In my work I get inspiration from big angel and venture capitalist firms, such as the giant investor Sequoia Capital; that has invested in companies like Apple, Google, YouTube, PayPal, Instagram, Yahoo!, Atari, Kayak, Zappos, and LinkedIn. I always suggest my potential clients to read what they are asking from people that want to get funds from them: www.sequoiacap.com/ideas They are not asking for a 100-page business plan. They believe that the best founders are clear thinkers. ----- MY PROCESS is also simple. I start with your ideas and your initial data and work until you are completely satisfied. I want to invite you to see my process of writing business plans here: http://goo.gl/ugB0l1 Before you hire me I give you a very clear plan of what I will do for you, step by step, with a feasible timetable. Again, I do not over-promise, I do what I said I will do. By hours, this is a breakdown of my typical development process: 1) Business Consulting (2-6 hours) 2) Market (Research and Plan) (4 to 8 hours) 3) Financials (4 to 10 hours) - 3 to 5 years of Sales, Profit & Loss, Cash Flow and Balance Sheet forecasts. 4) Writing (8 to 16 hours) - following the format of California VC firm Sequoia Capital and adding charts, maps, graphics, etc., to clarify your business pitch. My tools are 1)Internet for research, 2) Skype for communication, 3) ASANA to organize my work, 4) Excel to plot all financial projections, 5) PowerPoint to design pitch decks, and 6) a few RedBulls to work overnight and on time. Everything will start with a Skype chat and we go from there. ----- TERMS I work around your budget. I know that startups are not cash cows. Because every plan is unique, I like to discuss final payment terms during the interview process. My original bid is a guide for the client, and is based, usually, on a week of work (about 40 hours). Depending on the nature, format and stage of your business project, my work could take about a week and in some cases several weeks. My hourly rate is $80, and usually will take me 20 to 40 hours of work to develop a comprehensive plan. If you hire me as a fixed rate contract, I operate on a 3-payment basis. The first 20% is due at project start, a second payment of 40% at an agreed upon middle milestone, and the final 40% upon completion of the project. ------- SAMPLES Looking for samples of my work? Here is a list of some of my past projects: IT service start-up in Germany, data center in Uganda, online food service platform in Brazil, crowdfunding site in California, niche social network in the UK, nonprofit in Mozambique, real estate fund in Taiwan, TV production company in Los Angeles, agro-business in Nigeria, entertainment company in Holland, publishing service in Spain, beverage company in the UK, entrepreneurial education center in Dubai, pharmaceutical start up in Lebanon, electric company in Saudi Arabia, and several iOS native app start-up in Australia, Ukraine, Puerto Rico and USA.

Words have power – tremendous power. My mission is to harness that power in order to help my clients, whether that involves crafting clear, concise business manuals or helping a first-time writer to prepare a draft for submission to agents. I have been writing and editing professionally for nearly four years, and I bring to every client integrity, efficiency, and a sharp eye for detail. Please see my portfolio for examples of my work.
A freelance writer with three years experience in academia, six years in business writing, over forty short fiction publications and paid blogging experience.

I'm a professional multi-media journalist who can write, edit, research, produce, and design high-quality content on almost any topic and for any medium. From creating blog and social media posts to complete marketing communications plans, I have worked with clients including university programs, acupuncturists, chefs, commercial painters, e-commerce sites, news sites and forums, and more. I do not compromise my high ethical standards. Sorry, but I do not accept jobs that involve "ghostwriting" without credit, "spinning" and stealing others' copyrighted work, or other shady practices. What you get with me is a passionate, hard-working, detail-oriented, mass communications expert. What you do not get is someone who will rush the job or be a mindless "yes man" -- if I accept a job then I am committing to give you my best work effort, and that includes sometimes offering suggestions or advice -- getting you the final product you NEED, not just the one you think you want. I generally do not do Skype interviews or meetings for any projects paying less than $1,000. I am happy to answer any questions through ODesk or email, and I am happy to do a trial period for any ongoing positions. Sorry, but the reason I choose to do online freelancing is to make my own schedule and work in my pajamas; if you can't deal with that then best of luck finding someone who is a better fit for you.

I am also skilled in SEO and the analysis required to increase your website rankings. Please feel free to contact me for part-time work and short-term projects.
I’m writer and editor, living in the San Francisco Bay area. My 11 years at the San Francisco Business Times made me a fast, accurate writer on many subjects, from starting a small business to complex finance reporting. I was also the newspaper's copy editor for many years. My work includes many years as a digital content producer and web editor, with a focus on financial reporting, breaking news and small business coverage. Working with writers from veteran reporters down to raw interns has given me the ability to learn to polish good writing and overhaul poor writing. My fluency in the AP Stylebook and Chicago Manual of Style makes me an excellent proofreader able to take even the rawest of copy and bring it in to compliance. I am looking for writing, proofing and editing jobs on any subject.
I have a B.A. in English literature, a Ph.D. in linguistics from the University of Toronto, and 13 years of experience in academic writing and grant writing. During my academic career I have published 3 articles in top rated academic journals in my field, and 7 more as book chapters and conference proceedings. I have also presented my work at many academic venues, thus having perfected the skill to present any amount of information in a concise, clear, and engaging manner. During my graduate studies, I also regularly wrote grant proposals, and have managed to secure several highly prestigious federal and provincial grants. Over the course of 6 years, I have raised a total of over 130,000$ for my own academic research. My academic experiences have taught me that I genuinely enjoy the process of synthesizing ideas (my own and those of other people) into a compelling narrative. I started working as a freelance writer recently, and have already had experience writing grant proposals for a small non-profit start-up in Toronto, as well as writing and editing a couple of kickstarter projects. I greatly enjoyed this type of work, and look forward to more opportunities to help others with their research and writing needs. I believe that I can effectively apply my curiosity and skills to virtually any field of writing, editing or research.
