The Edit Guru did a great job editing my graduate admissions writing prompts. She helped me see the view point of the admissions officer and helped me clean up language which was too specialized or 'industry-specific' -- I will definitely reach out again if I have new writing projects.

Rita was so easy to work with! Her help and insight made this experience worth it. She transformed my resume, helped with writing cover letters, and coached me a long the way. I also liked how accessible she was if I needed anything. I loved working with her. Would definitely use her again the in future.

Great experience. I am very happy that I chose Lisa. She took a lot of time to get to know me before writing my resume. She did an excellent job on the resume, cover letter, and gave fantastic advice!

Jeff was fantastic. He is knowledgeable, and very easy to work with. He met a quick turnaround (10 days) deadline to edit my book for content, structure, and grammar. I would recommend him, and will definitely use him again for future projects! As an author, I was seeking an editor who would work with my voice to bring it out more - not change it. Jeff brought a great balance of clarity and direction, while balancing and polishing my voice - not inserting his. After interviewing two other editors and working with one in the past, this seems a rarer commodity than it sounds. His fees are also comparable to industry competitors, and reasonable. I will definitely use Jeff again for future editing and feedback about my writing!

I have had the privilege and honor of working with Sharon and I wish to share my experience so those out there, seeking to find that special person find solace and comfort in reading this. Sharon is an extremely attuned individual, who clearly has been a master of her craft for many years. She will listen to you, while collecting a sketch of who you are, what you have done and where you wish to go as a professional. She, as a paintbrush does with colors, will formulate in the most concise, relevant and articulate way, who you are and all that you have done and wish to, assembled beautifully and formatted with all that you have asked for in writing. She is expert with many platforms, is determined, authentic and committed to a client she works with, and I could not have asked for someone better in all areas! Her main goal/focus is to get you where you need to be - regardless of how close or far one is to the goal. It is difficult enough to self-market, even for those who are good with this, but she will always find a way to make the narrative interesting and memorable in the way she places her wording and chooses her statements about the person she works with. In addition, she her sensibilities and ability to really listen to the person makes for a more valuable journey, since she has a natural way of being an introspective listener while allowing the person to self-reflect. This allows for one to be honest with one's professional quest. I chose Sharon among many that are listed for professional writers/job seekers etc. Sharon works at all levels of the corporate hierarchy so her knowledge base, expertise and approach are all integrated behind successful yield and results! She has this personal touch in the way she works with you, and you at all times feel she gets to know you, versus it being just another client. She takes great pride in her work, will research everything there is to know and is diligent within her time frames and deadlines she sets for herself. I could not have been happier working with Sharon. She is a rare gem and I would highly recommend her to anyone who seeks professional advice/guidance and coaching. She is in addition, an extremely gifted writer. Thank you so much Sharon for your time, wisdom and incredible skills!

Michael has been an invaluable English tutor for our son. He was able to artfully help our son with his college essay, guiding him through the writing process while making sure the essay was in our son's own words. Our son was accepted into his first choice college, partly based on this essay. Even after our son's freshman year of college, Michael continues to be available to tutor him. Michael has delved deeply into understanding our son's writing challenges, identifying specific steps to help him get on the right track. With his insight and gentle manor, Michael has connected well with our son, allowing him to be a very effective tutor. Michael is very responsive and flexible, providing sessions on Skype when our son needs them. Michael has proven to be a top-notch writing tutor for our son.

My savior in the world of resume writing and career marketing! I've been CEO and co-founder of a successful e-commerce business and run my own consultancy for the last ten years. As such, it's been a loooong time since I've written a resume or needed one. I am now making a career pivot and am applying for positions abroad. I was in overwhelm, with the classic entrepreneur's rant, "unemployed and unemployable, that's why I have my own company." I wasn't impressed with the quality of the numerous resume writers I was finding versus the fees they were charging. My pain point was, how do I find somebody to extract all the varied and valuable skills, initiatives and accomplishments I've had the last ten years of running my own businesses? Luckily, I found Brian. His process is very in-depth, consisting of a two hour onboarding interview, a follow-up revision session, and as many drafts and edits of your resume as needed until I was happy. I also had him re-create my LinkedIn profile. The end product is exactly what I wanted and needed and I'm so glad that I chose him to do the work. His rates are very, very reasonable, quite a bit less than others I'd found, and the quality of the work, extraordinary. Plus he's a world-traveler, author and musician, so the side conversations are great as well. Highest recommendation! Thanks, Brian.

Olga helped my team to write, edit and finalize a great online schedule, and an orientation program for our International students program. Her attention to detail, ways of phrasing and insightful ideas and corrections were right on. It gave us clear, useful and non-confusing materials to send to our students. Thank you, Olga!

Evelyn didn’t just write my resume. She helped me understand what someone reading my resume who didn’t know me would want to see, and what wasn’t necessary to put in. She got me to rethink how I viewed myself and my contributions at work. I am also glad I went with someone local rather than some big resume place because it was more personal and she took the time to get to know me as a person, even though we did everything online and on the phone. I got the job, and the person interviewing me even complemented me on my resume. I’ve recommended her to others and will continue to do so
