Colleen is a rare combination -- both wonderfully logical and incredibly kind and warm. I can't say enough of my sessions with her, especially the analytical exercises and work to reframe thought processes. Colleen is your neuroscience-backed fairy godmother, helping you change your behaviors, retell your story to yourself, and leap for what you want the most (but have always been afraid to dare to even whisper to yourself that yes, you can have it, and yes, you do in fact deserve it). Using Pinterest boards, writing exercises, journaling, analytical exercises and actionable items and goals for the week, we've tackled so much together -- and the best part is, I know I'm not in it alone. I love having someone who has no SUBJECTIVE bias for what she wants to happen in my life -- unlike my family or friends, she is merely there to help me get the best, most passionate life. Change your thinking, and you'll change your life -- but this isn't just "think positively." It's "How can we be concrete in our new thinking and try out different new things to see what works." Try out her exercises and self-reflections and see if you don't have a new direction in a few months. Dakota Kim, Writer and Event Producer
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.
It is with genuine enthusiasm that I recommend Lynn Murphy as a writer, editor, and editorial project manager. Lynn is exceptionally smart and strategic, quickly grasping all relevant data and key points of emphasis, and then communicates in clear and concise prose to suit any business project. At the same time, she has a woman's keen intuition and insight that make her equally well suited for more sensitive subjects and assignments. Lynn also has an editor's eye for great versus more common writing, whether on more complicated subjects or with the simple turn of a phrase that results in the most compelling communication. Net, she can write for you or make your writing better. Importantly, Lynn has invaluable experience in the high-octane world of Hollywood television and film. She brings fire-hardened skills in working successfully under pressure and in a more visible environment with lofty expectations. Finally, and perhaps most significantly, Lynn is a wonderful colleague and teammate. She's punctual, delivers her work on time and on the mark, and always delights with the outcome. She is truly a pleasure with whom to work, and I recommend her most highly. I
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!
Great writer. Quick delivery. I got more than I asked for, and would use him again. This was a unique project, but his theatrical and film background came in very handy to me.

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.
