Nadine was awesome. I received a quick response. She is a very professional, articulate and quick to understand lady. After our initial discussion she provided a new resume in just a few days. It is the most professional looking resume I have ever had and was extremely focused on my intended employment target. We had two edit go round's which is standard for her but to be honest, it probably could have been done in one. She is that good. Kudo's to her for hitting the nail on the head. The only negative is that she seems to be extremely busy. It took 4 days to schedule an appointment for the initial call. That took longer then the actual writing and edit process. All in all in took about 8 days.

Steve Sanborn is a gifted writer. He can take a complicated, technical subject and bring clarity to the reader in a way that few can do. My contact with Steve was through LifeFlight Eagle (LFE) and also the Missouri Emergency Medical Services Association (MEMSA). In both organizations he created original content for membership promotion as well as other informational documents. And in both organizations, he produced newsletters that were widely distributed. His writing style was engaging and informative. Deadlines were met and a quality product was produced. I have no hesitancy in endorsing Steve as a talented, skillful writer. I can assure others, you will not be disappointed if he writes for you.

I find writing a resume is not fun. I am the type of person that has difficulty selling my skill set to others on paper. About 4 years ago, I discovered resume writing services were "a thing" and if I went through the killer deal site, Groupon, I could utilize this service for as low as $40.00. I answered some questions on a survey and sent my job history to an email address. The end product was delivered and I was happy with it at the time. But I was employed and was not actively seeking employment. As time went on, I myself would update my resume. Now four years later I am back job hunting. For three months, I have been applying through job boards, employer websites, attending job fairs and I just wasn't getting any bites so I knew I needed help. That's where Michele and Associates came in. Some of the key things that made it such a great experience- · The Turnaround- After I initially spoke with Michele on the phone, I sent her my resume to review. Literally, the next day we were on the phone discussing revisions. · The Product- My resume looks awesome! Michele has a gift. I would have never been able to come up with a list of accomplishments, and placing them at the top of a resume makes so much sense…I would never have thought of that! And the table format…it really makes it stand out! · The Consultation- My previous experience was all done through email. The gentleman I worked with was in CA and made no effort to get to know me. We had only two email exchanges until I received the end product. From the get go, Michele was very professional, knowledgeable, polite and personable. We spent over 30 minutes on our initial phone call and nearly 60 minutes going over the resume after she made revisions. She genuinely made an effort to get to know me and wanted to make sure I understood the revisions that she made. I am 100% completely satisfied. I have posted my new resume to indeed.com and updated my Linkin.com profile. I have not been offered a job yet, but have had 3 recruiters reach out to me based off of my new resume in less than two weeks!

It's exciting to write and get lost in another world. I enjoy that aspect of writing. Anything from web-content and blogs to music and short stories.

Writing is my passion! I love all types of writing. Assisting businesses and people with my skills as a wordsmith combines two of my favorites: helping people solve a problem and writing. The ability to communicate well is essential to any profession. Writing well and succinctly is a true gift. It's a gift I honed well while in broadcast journalism and outdoor advertising. These are two mediums where time and space are limited and priced at a premium. As a journalist, I would spend the entire day researching, interviewing and gathering information on a few topics. Then I would have to condense everything I had learned into a 30-second to 90-second story. Getting it right was essential as there were millions of viewers who could quickly vote with their remote that my story wasn't interesting. Getting the facts correct was equally as important because those same million viewers could instantly discredit me by revealing inaccuracies in my story. Do we all know Brian Williams? In outdoor advertising, yes billboards, you have even less time to capture someone's attention, about 10 seconds. Usually the people you are trying to reach with your message are moving at a high rate of speed and have lots of other distractions. I once helped a gentleman in Louisiana propose to his girlfriend on a billboard. I was so excited to help him and impressed with his creative proposal. Unfortunately, the message was so eye-catching that a child of his fiance's best friend saw it as our team was placing the billboard panels. My client's plan was to drive her past the billboard, but she received a phone call from the friend before he had a chance. The story ends with a happily married couple, just not the proposal he had planned --so not all bad. Most of my career has been writing brochures, web copy, compelling emails, case studies, invitations, company descriptions, pleas for funding or volunteers for a cause and much more. I have the unique ability to put myself in someone else's spot and determine how to not just capture his/her attention but to act on that emotion. I ask myself: What would make me visit this company? What would make me donate to this cause? What would make me respond to this email? As my husband likes to say, I have the gift of gab, referring to me as the "perfect talking machine" -- which is ideal when you need someone to write conversationally or naturally. This style of writing isn't a turn-off because you don't feel like you are being "sold" something. My talents lie in my ability to tell stories. Convincing people to use your company, product or service is often telling them the story behind why you are in business and how you have helped other clients. Overloading prospective clients with facts and features is necessary at the right time, but initially you have to get them interested in how you can help them achieve their goals. This usually happens because you tell them a good story. Let me tell your story for you. I promise to impress! Thanks for your time and attention. Have a great remainder of your day!

I fluently speak and write English and French. I excellently write/edit in both languages, translate English to French and vice versa, orally and in writing. Since I work from home, I prefer working with my clients via telephone, email, and Skype. And if we have to meet in person, for let say a first meet and greet, I typically suggest meeting at a public place of your choice, and then go from there. With writing, editing and written translation, I charge per page, and it runs up to $5-$20, depending on how critical and demanding the project is. With oral translation, I charge $35/hour and $45/hour for algebra tutoring.

I read voraciously. I write sporadically. I obsess over grammar and syntax. I read with keen, critical eyes. I edit copy for fun. I do the dirty work so that my client makes a stellar (subconscious) first impression. This is my first attempt at writing and editing professionally. (I work as an attorney to pay the bills.) Thus, my rates will be flat and cheap at the outset. Thanks for your consideration. BL
