When you look at my work experience you will see that my skills, ingenuity and ability to stick to the task at hand will serve you well in terms of what you came on Elance to do.
Thank you for considering awarding your job posting to me.
Having owned several small businesses, I've worn many hats, including buyer, graphic designer, copy writer, bookkeeper (QuickBooks), as well as handling correspondence, merchandising, display and sales. I'm also pretty good at dusting. (grin)
I have found that I love customer service. Customers in my store frequently complemented us on our great service, as well as the feel of the store itself.
I've been a personal assistant on several occasions, each lasting several years and each ending in positive circumstances. Duties included basic bookkeeping, preparing reports in QuickBooks for board meetings, helping to edit a book of poetry and photographs, organization, filing, handling mail and phone calls, creating photo cards and marketing them to local stores, running errands, odd jobs, and whatever came up.
I have a love for words and writing - and for rewriting!
Ah, the joy when creativity flows! I bring this love to the work I will do for you.
I'm good at keeping myself on task and meeting deadlines. I strive for authenticity and integrity in all that I do.
I only respond to a post if I believe I can meet the needs of the client.
I bring 100% to any job I take on.
I'll give you my best.
