Paul responded quickly when I needed help editing my cover letter and resume. The edits he made elevated the professionalism and readability of my documents. I got the job I was applying to and I believe that's due, in part, to Paul's services.

5 star My husband and I were EXTREMELY thrilled about our wedding video by Evan Lanier! This is probably one of the most precious and priceless pieces we have taken away from the wedding and all thanks goes to Evan! Each time we watch it, the video reminds us of all the memories. Evan did an amazing job at capturing our WHOLE day! He made us feel at ease in all the wedding-day-jitters and his personality is so fun to be around– you instantly feel like you have known him for years. If I were to give advice to any future bride and grooms, I would say if at all possible, INVEST IN A WEDDING VIDEO BY EVAN! You will definitely not regret it! Evan is so incredibly talented and very professional about his work. He captured our day perfectly and compiled it into a stunning, edited video, including music and great audio of the time prior to the wedding when we were getting ready, the ceremony and the reception. It was a pleasure to have Evan be a part of our special day. He listened to all our video requests and also captured everything we didn’t think of. We knew everything was taken care of and he was so fun to have around. We were so happy to have each special moment captured on video. Evan had really great turn-around time and the quality of work is unbelievable. I recommend Evan and his products. It truly is something we will have forever and will watch for years to come. Thank you Evan, for making our special day a beautifully captured day to remember forever.

    I have worked with Michael in a previous position as business editor of The Huntsville Times and now as public affairs with The University of Alabama in Huntsville. In all of my dealings with Michael, he has been consistent in his performance. Two critical elements I look for is the ability to follow a story direction and clean copy. Michael has always delivered in both of those areas.

      I'm a numbers and figures guy. Not so much on grammar but most importantly, finding reputable sources to back up my statistics. I enlisted the help of Ms. Altman to cross the t's and dot the i's so my presentation was pristine for my client. Not only did she edit my presentation professionally, she found more than enough resources to help back my statistics and ultimately, I got the account I worked so hard on. Outsourcing my research and editing for my presentation is an invaluable resource and Ms. Altman will continue to receive my business from here forward.

      Ghost Writers, Etc. A boutique service for executives on a mission Why? As a busy executive in an increasingly complex world, you may find yourself without the time to do many of the things that could help you extend your business influence or simply achieve personal growth goals. You may be too busy to keep abreast of the latest peripheral developments in a given area, conduct research vital to the creation of a new product or idea, or you may simply be too exhausted at the end of a long day of meetings to read all you need to read. Experience that can be of benefit to you: With over 40 years of experience in the corporate world, in travel, and in the world of academia combined, I have a unique perspective on your needs and what could help you connect the dots, find more time to do what you want to do, or simply achieve greater personal peace of mind. Research – First, I personally love to read and research almost any subject, from art history to the latest developments in oil and gas discoveries. I hold a Master’s degree in Art History and have taught art history classes at the University of Alabama at Birmingham as well as at Birmingham-Southern College. Travel – Extensive travel throughout England, Europe, Russia and China. If you or your staff have travel needs, I can offer assistance as well as knowledge about these areas, including making travel reservations, booking accommodations, or even finding an out-of-the way and unique location for a meeting. Speech/Article Writing – I have written a book about a prominent mid-twentieth century American businessman as well as a thesis and many other articles for both the business and the academic worlds. I wrote and was editor-in-chief of Harbert Corporation’s international corporate magazine.

Confidential Documentation - I have extensive experience working with executives at the highest corporate level. I can help you keep track of your investments or other private financial records with the full knowledge that your private business remains private. I have passed the NASD Series 7 exam to be a registered trader in stocks, bonds, and other investment products. Other – Your needs may include the above, a combination, or some other business requirement you or your assistant simply have neither the time nor inclination to do. If so, talk to me. I will tailor a program designed specifically for your business needs. An initial consultation is yours for the asking. My fee structure is reasonable and flexible on an hourly, daily, weekly, or other basis, as convenient for you, at your service. GhostWriters,Etc. Linda Stephan

      About

      I am a writer and can help edit, proofread, and actually write for those who need it. I've been doing this for over 10 years.

      About

      In many cases I find that clients are skeptical of technical writers because they have engaged one in the past with a degree in either English or journalism, one who could have written a book on the myriad uses of the apostrophe or comma, but who had little or no background in technology. The client thus became the tech writer, and the tech writer, merely a copy editor. In comparison, as an engineer I am a very quick study with regard to any form of science or technology. My reviews have been consistently favorable, stating in particular that I present complex topics in an interesting and understandable way.

      About

      I provide Spanish/ English tutoring, and editing, proofreading, and conversation practice in English.

      Q & A

      Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

      How do you hire a good grant writer?

      Grants are available to nonprofit organizations, for-profit businesses that qualify for government grants, and individuals who qualify for foundation or government grants. Hiring a good grant writer can help you gain funding in your chosen field. According to the American Grant Writers’ Association, grant writers can help you research potential grant opportunities; write grant proposals, create budgets, and build budget narratives; review written materials before you submit; prepare a business plan; analyze your organization for grant competitive qualities; prepare research grants; help with 501(c)(3) applications for nonprofits; and more. Investing in the right grant writer could result in a financial win for your organization. Generally no licenses or certificates are required to be a good grant writer, but you may want to find a grant writer who has been certified (not just received a certificate of completion) by a reputable organization such as the Grant Professionals Certification Institute. Qualities to look for in a good grant writer include:

      • Proven success writing winning grants, especially in your target area.
      • Strong writing skills.
      • Strong math skills and demonstrated proficiency with budgeting.
      • Careful attention to detail — brilliant grant proposals may be rejected just for formatting errors, so you want someone who follows instructions explicitly.
      • Expertise in your target area.
      • Punctuality and good communication skills.

      How much does a grant writer cost?

      Hiring a grant writer can give you a competitive edge when applying for financial grants for your business or nonprofit organization, or as an individual. The cost to hire a grant writer can vary depending on their academic background, areas of expertise, previous grant writing success and years of experience. According to the Grant Professionals Association, grant writers should be paid hourly or by flat fee. It is unethical for a grant writer to accept a commission or percentage compensation of grant monies received. They can, however, be awarded bonuses in line with the hiring company’s prevailing practices. Here are some examples of average grant writing fees:

      • Hourly rate for grant writers with less experience or fewer grants awarded: $25-$35 per hour.
      • Hourly rate for grant writers with some degree of success: $35-$75 per hour.
      • Hourly rate for grant writers with proven success winning large grants: $75-$150 or more per hour.
      • For a smaller grant, the writer may charge a flat fee of $200-$500 for preparation and submission.  

      Pricing may also vary based on the complexity of the grant application. A federal grant that requires pages of research, budgets and a business plan may take more than 30 hours to prepare. For a high-level grant writer who charges $100 per hour, this means $3,000 or more in grant writing fees.

      Most grant writers will provide you with a total cost estimate before agreeing to the work. You may be required to pay a deposit up front, or the grant writer may work from a retainer. Often, seasoned grant writers pay for themselves in the long run by writing successful grants.

      Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
