Fantastic job! I would highly recommend VerbWright Writing Services!
Laura is extremely smart, gifted and talented. From the moment we met, I could tell she was that rare individual, who has that special quality and talent to bring out the best in people. She has a keen perception of people and situations. An award winning journalist, writer, and collaborator, Laua is a professional coach who spent 15 years in Paris inspiring French professionals to overcome their personal and professional challenges, removing blocks toward reaching for the best in themselves. Finding a coach as qualified as Laura with her breadth of experience and personal charisma is impossible. I highly recommend her.
Linda's work is above the rest! You won't find a multi talented photographer, writer, and graphic artist all-in-one like Linda. Once you let Linda do her thing, you will see your business grow like never before.
Mike was the Editor-in-Chief and Team manager for our website/blog Mostbest.com. He is a creative thinker and a quality writer. He also managed a team of six writers. His work ethic was exceptional. His managerial skills were great and he had a good rapport among all the team members. He was our go-to-person for any kind of task.
This is the second time I purchased through Thumbtack and the difference is night and day. I cant believe how happy I am that I found A better Resume Service. After scheduling a free consultation, I went in to meet with the writer. he seemed to understand what I wanted and really listened to what I had to say. The first time, I made the mistake of looking for something cheap and fast. What I ended up with was nothing for my money. I learned that low cost means no work done and fast means no time to do it right. I also learned that if you deal with someone outside your state and they dont respond to your emails or phone calls, you have no way to make it right. The first time I paid up front, then sent my resume in. The next morning it came back a little more pretty. For what I paid, it looked like they spent 20 minutes and spell checked it. Most of what I gave them came back in the same wording. Even though they had a guarantee and lots of reviews, I was so disappointed, I didn't pursue it any more. I never used that resume and it was a waste of money. Beware of anyone who says resumes can be done in 24 hours. On the other hand, when I spent the time with A Better Resume Service, not only did I get a new resume, but it was crafted the way I wanted it. Once the work was done, I sat down again and discussed the changes I wanted. The writer told me what would work in the job market and what wouldnt so I went with his advice and I am glad I did. When I started using the resume, there was an immediate difference in response, It was almost unreal. Employers called saying that I looked like the most qualified person for the job and that made my interviews go from convincing people to entertaining opportunities. I have one offer, one pending and a couple of interviews coming up. I think I may cancel those interviews and stop accepting new ones. If you want to change your luck, spend a little extra, get your resume done right and you will find that every day when you wake up for work, you will be gad of making the right decision.
Laura helped me with an essay I was writing for admission into the nursing program at UW Parkside. She was very quick with her responses back to me and had a lot of wonderful feedback to help me better my essay. I really appreciate the time she took to help me.
Arlene has been creating content and writing blogs for my website. She is fantastic. Exactly what our site needed. She's creative, professional and very nice to work with. Highly recommend.
Marissa was an excellent tutor! She helped me with my English homework and because of her I got a much better grade in the class. I feel like I am a better writer because of her and I use the skills she gave me in all of my writing assignments now. She was incredibly professional but also very friendly and easy to talk to. Essay writing is now so much easier for me because of the the things Marissa taught me. I would recommend Marissa as a tutor to anyone looking to improve their writing.
Reese is very professional and good, and humorous writer. I truly enjoyed working with him because he was willing to compose what I wanted and valued my wish. He is great!!!!!
Deborah was punctual in providing a press release on very short notice, and her responsiveness to suggested edits and changes was greatly appreciated!
I've been working with Kristie for over 1 year now and I can truly say she is a top-notch and creative writer. She has an uncanny ability to have the readers visualize the outcome you are trying to portray. It is a skillset that has definitely placed my business to a different level. I highly recommend her.
Suzanne was the editor of my book, The Gyne's Guide for College Women (TheGynesGuide.com) and she did a fantastic job! I recommend her highly!
Cindy is the best of the best! She is someone you just want to get to know. She handled everything so beautifully and led us through it each step of the way. Our wedding was better than we could have ever hoped for! She made the entire wedding so personal and even wrote the most incredible poem about our lives together. We are going to have it framed as a lifelong reminder! With Cindy performing our marriage, we always felt comfortable that everything was in control and would go well - and believe me, that's a great feeling! After all, your wedding is your most important day! Cindy doesn't only have a lot of experience marrying people, but she has been a speaker for years! So she is very used to talking to big crowds. This was so wonderful, because she came across so natural, she could be heard well, and really knew how to "present" the ceremony so that it all comes off without a problem. She is also great for those awkward "on the spot" moments where no one knows what to do or say. (We had one of those with my mother-in-law, but Cindy handled it beautifully!) Everyone was so pleased and very impressed. She led us through our rehearsal so we all knew what to do and what to expect. She helped us to write our vows without being intrusive or pushy. She was sooooo helpful! She organized our music for us, helped us to chose readings and just put together and overall ceremony that blew us away! Oh, and she also created our wedding bulletins! They were really awesome! I just loved them!!! I will recommend Cindy to everyone (and do). She is that on-in-a-million type of person you just hope will come into your life. We will always be grateful that she came into ours!!!!
Working with Kay was fantastic! Her feedback was thoughtful and thorough! She is a fantastic writer which was definitely reflected in her proposed edits. Would definitely recommend!
