  1. #1 Stephanie J. Beavers Communications

    (41 reviews)

    Kimberly W.

    Stephanie has helped me revise and finalize several cover letters so far. I am very pleased with her work and it is great working with her. Her turn around is quick, the quality of her work is excellent and she is very knowledgeable in both the technical aspects of writing/grammar and how to craft a professional cover letter. I feel very lucky to have found her and will continue using her for my job hunt and other writing needs.

    Dyan K.

    I meet with Judith about three times. I felt this was necessary for me because I am a poor writer, and wanted to see if she understood all the details that I wanted on my sister web site. I felt that she was a excellent listener, produced top quality work, and she worked fast. Her pricing was great, and will hire her for future work!

  4. #4 Mark Vanderpool, Prose Surgeon

    (7 reviews)

    LA C.

    Mark Vanderpool was professional and understanding about my book. He accepted my request to have an introduction call prior to the possible hire; which I truly appreciated it. This was my first time hiring an editor. This is my first book so I was not at all comfortable with trusting someone with my newborn (manuscript), but it needed to be done. Mark understood and was so kind and patient with all my MANY questions and CONCERNS. He willingly opened up to me about his professional background and vast experiences in this profession which put me in a much needed comfort zone. He finds pleasure in assisting people like us (writers). He embraces new projects/stories. He really does!!! He polished and refined my book. I could tell that he focused on my story and respected my way of writing. He offered advice and shared his opinion about what I may want to think about revising...than he provided an example. He acknowledged major points of my story and provided comments on areas to draw attention to and places where my audience should focus. I recommend Mark Vanderpool for your next project. Awesome Experience! I would definitely hire him again.

Thumbtack Spotlight

Smart Solutions

(1 review)

What do you love about your job?

I've been called “The Fixer” by a client, and it's a moniker I completely embrace. I love getting up each morning and solving problems on behalf of clients. From marketing to branding and content writing, if a client wants to reinvent, improve, or expand her business, I can't wait to create and execute a plan for success. While freelancing and consulting isn't for everyone and some months are tougher than others, I relish the independence and flexibility this work affords. I've been fortunate to meet and work with smart and generous people. This work has made me a better professional, mentor, and entrepreneur. I can't imagine doing anything else.

What or who inspired you to start your own business?

Necessity is the mother of invention, or that's what I've heard. In this case, it's true. I've had the entrepreneurial bug before and each time been head-hunted back into the corporate world. Following an emotionally devastating layoff from a nonprofit I'd given my heart and soul to, I decided to launch Smart Solutions to solve creative, marketing, and branding challenges for clients on my own terms. I haven't looked back. I'm lucky to have a strong network of brilliant entrepreneurs, and on those dark days that are tough, they keep me anchored. I've also been fortunate to mentor others and will continue to do so. I believe in the entrepreneurial circle of life; if I can give back half of what my mentors have given me, that's more than I can hope.
