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!

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.

The articles you wrote for my website did the trick. Thank you for helping me connect with my audience. They probably I'm some kind of Shakespeare now, but that was all you. Thanks! :)

Mike has done a great job editing my work in the past. He has a very critical eye and is good at spotting inconsistencies and making work more concise. My writing was definitely much improved after receiving Mike's input. Having reviewed some of his own work as well, I know that Mike is also a clear, clever, and insightful writer.

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.

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!

I’m very pleased to recommend Liz Richards as a ghost writer for your project. You will find that she is not only a talented writer but also a hard worker and highly ethical. Liz is an experienced writer who knows grammar inside and out. It is, however, her ability to work together that would set her apart for your project. In my experience, not all good writers are good collaborators. While working together, I discovered that she was especially skilled at listening to my ideas and asking pertinent questions before encapsulating my thoughts into concise, readable text. It sometimes felt like she could see inside my head and put it down on paper. I was also impressed by her stamina. If a draft was needed quickly, she put in the extra hours to be sure it was done correctly and on time. She offered thoughtful suggestions for changes without making me feel obligated to accept. Sometimes her suggestions prompted a conversation that uncovered ideas that neither one of us had previously thought of. All of this made her extremely easy to work with. Finally, ethics are critical because writing is a very personal endeavor. To be frank, you need to be able to trust the person you are working with to help communicate your ideas without without sharing them elsewhere. You can trust Liz Richards. She has a deep faith and a strong moral compass. I think she’s great and look forward to working together with her again in the future.

I sought Marissa's help when writing my personal statement for medical school applications. She was instrumental in helping me organize my thoughts into a clear and concise piece of writing. Thanks to her my personal statement was probably better written than all of the essays I ever wrote in college. She taught me style tools and techniques that I continue to use in my writing. She also made the process enjoyable. I actually looked forward to editing and revising my writing with her. I plan to seek her help again when it comes time to write my personal statement for residency applications.

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!!!!
