Sandy has done a terrific job. She is an excellent writer, but, more than that, she takes the time to figure out exactly what your goals are, and then tailors her writing to be in line with those goals. She is also prompt, dependable, and charges extremely reasonable fees. I highly recommend Sandy for your writing needs!

Gracie M. Nutritionist Working with Laura "I have enjoyed working with Laura and am grateful that she's on this journey with me. She really spends a great an amount of time trying to understand me and provides advice and assistance as she sees fit. I wanted to make sure that I am working with someone that truly can provide for me their lasting insight and can help me tackle this issue with all the components of spiritual, emotional and physical mindset. Laura is just the right person for that! She is a cheerleader, encourager and holds me accountable. Looking forward to continuing our work together."

My sincerest gratitude to Tammy for enriching me by guiding me to find my deepest talents; for inspiring me by quoting insights on how to be a great writer from a variety of astute sources; for encouraging me with her kindness and understanding of the big picture and my personal ones. If there was a letter grade better than an A++, I would give her that esteem.

I was frustrated with progress on my dissertation when I was gifted time with a dissertation coach. Stephanie Latkovski was responsive, attentive, insightful, and incredibly helpful. She got me past being stuck and feelings of inadequacy to focusing on the job to be done. Not only did I begin to feel better about myself as a writer, I became more productive. Three years after I graduated with my doctoral degree, my dissertation was published. I am grateful for the opportunity to work with such a great writing coach!

I highly recommend Donna and Larkin Lake Strategic Communications. Donna is an excellent writer and has the ability to take difficult concepts and develop them into meaningful communication for a variety of audiences. She meets deadlines with ease and she is great to work with. You would not go wrong in hiring her for a communications assignment.

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!!!!

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 don’t 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 wouldn’t 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.

Our team hired mike after an impressive interview, and after thorough review of his outstanding work portfolio. During his time with us, his dependability, consistency and impeccable attention to detail in conjunction with the ability to manage a team of other freelance writers allowed him to progress from a freelance writer to Editor In Chief. He also held the title of Team Manager, and his team consistently achieved and exceeded weekly and monthly goals. As Mike's project was concluded, our administrative staff have saved his contact information because he will surely be contacted when his expertise is required in the future. It is without any hesitation that I recommend this outstanding individual.

Marissa worked with me to fine-tune a cover letter draft, and tailor it to multiple job applications. Her edits were thoughtful and really took my writing to the next level. Her writing expertise and creative approach helped me finalize a cover letter that stood out, and I ended up with two job offers!

Heidi is amazing – she is professional, easy to talk to and most of all, she transformed my book into a more interesting and readable format. Her input gave me the confidence to put my story out into the world. I would recommend Heidi to anyone who needs an editor. She understands what the writer’s challenges are – she “gets it”. She’s great!
