Colleen is really special. Ive been working with her for the past few months on a diverse range of creative, academic, and emotional goals: she is helping me develop my Masters Thesis at Columbia University, publish my first zine of comics, and proactively plan and prioritize my life from a place of independence and strength. Colleens specific toolset and background are perfectly suited to provide practical support as well as creative inspiration in each of these areas. As a creative herself, she has pointed me towards references and directions that are spot-on and invigorating, while at the same time offering a larger structure and organization for my work that allows me to actually get things done. One of the most concrete benefits Ive experienced from working with Colleen is a huge improvement in my productivity and mood during the work day. Colleen crafts personalized schedules for my day based on neuroscience, and as a result I have literally doubled my essay-writing speed. Colleen is incredibly talented on an emotional level as well: she creates a safe space and time that is just for me, and I can tell that she is really listening and actively thinking about my goals because of her invariably insightful responses. Its been wonderful having such a supportive partner in my life, and best of all, it is so fulfilling to actually accomplish goals that Ive dreamt about for a long time. Colleen is magic her coaching is the best thing to enter my life in a long time and she has my highest, most enthusiastic recommendation.
I have been a returning customer of Carly's. She originally helped me get a full time position at Accountemps within less than a month of working with her and when I was laid off, Carly told me that Amazon's Fulfillment Center in DuPont, WA was hiring. I applied and am working there now. For supplemental income, I also am an Uber driver thanks to Carly as well (she had met the Marketing Manager for Uber at a Chambers event). I love that I can make my own hours, use my own car, and get paid weekly via direct deposit. Carly also introduced me to performing mystery shops for local banks and stores. I do those as jobs are available in my area. Additionally, I give rides to a business colleague Carly introduced me to who has his own transportation business similar to Uber and when he is not available, I fill in with giving rides. Lastly, this past June for the U.S. Open at Chambers Bay, Carly had introduced me to the owner of Andy Frain's Security Services and I performed security duties at the U.S. Open. I cannot thank Carly enough for all the contacts and jobs that she's given to me. She just told me today about another supplemental income opportunity that involves being a "looker" when someone pays you to confirm something in person, like an out-of-state buyer who found a car online or vacation-home owners who need their property checked for damage after a storm. I applied today and hope to do that for supplemental income too. I highly recommend Carly to anyone who is looking for a job. She has a WIDE network of people she knows and she won't ever have a shortage of jobs or income generating activities. Carly is more than just a professional marketer/writer she is a motivational job coach pushing you to the best you can be always.

Deborah Drake is incredible! I was first introduced to Deb over a year ago, after she invited me to be a part of her weekly writing group we affectionately called Tuesdays with Deborah or better known to us as A Writers Support Group for Reticent Bloggers. She created a safe haven for writers and bloggers to incubate their ideas and share thoughts weekly. Which turned out to be some of the best inspiration, not only for my writing, but for my business as well. I have also had the opportunity to work with her on my first book, The Art of Working for Yourself which she was my editor and voice on my shoulder, helping me get out of my own way. I have to thank her for helping me keep my writing voice as the project went along. As tough as the process sometimes was for me, Deb was pivotal in making sure I stayed on track and helped me flush out ideas from the cover to my bio. I would work with her again in a heartbeat. What more can I say, Deb is good at what she does.
I have worked with Lynn for over 20 years, and in that time she has consistently produced the most creative writing solutions to all my work challenges. She has never been at a loss for ideas and clever ways to address a topic. Writing is not my strong suit so I always turn to Lynn for that. She does more than just write well. She takes her readers on a most delightful ride as she spins her tales...whether it is a simple flyer or a more complex brochure. Lynn understands what it takes to capture a reader's interest, and to me, that is what makes her so successful.
Theo has been flexible, attentive, open, and completely willing to tailor his curriculum and focus on our kids' writing needs. I am impressed by his dedication to help our kids become excellent writers, and have confidence in his well-developed curriculum. He has been extremely open to feedback and a delight to work with. I highly recommend Theo as a tutor!
Message Glue, specifically Ken Boynton, helped AFC rebuild our website. We went into it with a site from 2010 and, as a registered investment advisor, a lot of government regulation about what could and could not be said. Ken took everything in stride, writing and rewriting intelligent and insightful content for the site, connecting us with professionals who did quality work where he felt his personal skills weren't what we needed, and gave us realistic and valuable feedback on the project. AFC can't recommend Ken and Message Glue highly enough; they are masters of capturing a company's story and taking the time to understand our business.
Kevin's training and coaching approach is welcoming, and relaxed. I have personally been coached by Kevin and always felt I had not only his ear and guidance, but his support. He has a very unique way of defusing any situation and guiding participants to discover successful solutions. My career took on a whole new meaning under Kevin's coaching and mentor ship. Although I was in the correct field, Kevin assisted me in finding the specific job duties that allowed me to utilize my gifts and move from a job I enjoyed to a job I love.
Editing is not an easy job; one must be a reader, counselor, critic, teacher, and at the same time; supportive, challenging, and encouraging when bringing the best out of a writer's work. Ms Daniel does it all, effortlessly. She has edited several of my short stories and has not just improved the quality of each one, she has sharpened my skills as a writer. I could not ask for more.

I'm confident that my resume will produce interviews. I highly recommend Fran to anyone looking for a professional resume writer/editor.
Have worked with Barbara on many writing projects over the past 20 years. She's an excellent writer, editor, and teacher! Very detailed, observant, and nuanced.
I listen to my clients and try to find out what separates their product or service from others, and what benefits that will have to their potential customers. Then I write something clear, compelling and unique--to make sure your customers know why you're special, too.
