    Having worked in the high-tech sector for more than 25 years, including at and with a variety of Fortune 100 companies, I’ve interacted with many talented writers and marketing consultants. None of them can match Dan in terms of level of skill, ability and professionalism. He is a master, who combines superlative communication skills with an amazing knowledge of consumer behavior and cutting-edge marketing techniques, to produce breathtakingly effective marketing collateral. I would recommend Dan enthusiastically to anyone, except maybe potential competitors!

    I was an associate of Rena at Harris Stratex Corp. She was responsible for documentation, both technical and user facing. We worked together for several months and I found Rena to be a clear and concise writer, atypically technically competent, with excellent managerial instincts. I enjoyed working with Rena and would love to do so again. I recommend her highly.

    After hours of pulling my hair out in frustration with a problem I was having on my Wordpress website, I gave up and asked for help. Eamonn stepped in and fixed the problem right away. He also went through the whole site and fixed all the pages while he was at it. His web knowledge came in very useful for me. Friendly, professional, and timely service. What’s not to like?

      Translating, effective written communications, and interpreting involve knowing the language and understanding the context in which the message will be delivered. It is not enough to just know the language, but also the customer, his or her cultural vantage point, and his or her specific needs. My job is to tailor a solution to your communication needs and add value for you.


      I offer one-on-one career transition/outplacement counseling including the following: * Asset analysis/career and goals assessment * Resume writing and editing * One-on-one counseling * Personal marketing strategies * Job search work flow and process training * Career and personal networking training * Communications and self-presentation evaluations and enhancement coaching (interview coaching and preparation) * Follow-up and support throughout I have spent over 15 years as a senior executive recruiter in the Silicon Valley where I have counseled and coached literally thousands of candidates and executive-level clients through their own career challenges. My own career has taken me from blue collar in the early '80s to white collar sales and consulting in the late '80s, moving into business management in the early '90s, and business ownership in the late '90s. The latter part of my career has seen me transition from sales manager to managing partner to V.P. to C.O.O, and even co-found a company and ownership, where I have been a vendor to a number of Fortune 500 companies such as Cisco, Sun Microsystems, Wells Fargo, etc. Every stage is wrought with unknown factors which can be scary, but if you replace fear and uncertainty with enthusiasm about the possibilities, times of transition can be acknowledged as the greatest opportunities for growth, and forward progress on your own career. I now work with both individuals and corporate clients alike as a career transition counselor, helping others to move in a positive direction towards the next phase of their own careers. Call me, and let's work together to prepare you for the opportunities that lay before you. Mark Fort

      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.
