    After earning my degree in International Business from Swinburne University of Technology, Australia; I worked full time as a Business Development Executive for an ISO 9001-2008 Certified Management Consulting firm where my responsibilities included preparing expression of interests (EOIs) and writing technical proposals for multi-million dollar development projects. As a freelance writer, I have written hundreds of financial analysis, reports and articles on the subject of Stock markets and Forex over the years for syndicated publications and blogs including reviews, market commentary and periodic analysis. As an avid follower of GTD time management and Zen work principles; I always thrive to know how much workload I can handle and never accept any assignment unless I can schedule and manage my time to deliver the project, on time. For fixed-priced writing contracts, my rate per word is $0.05-0.15, depending on the content. As one of the top 10% oDesk contractors, I am looking for opportunities to render my expertise as a writer or any other business services. Looking forward to working with you soon!  less
