Service Description

I am prepared to perform accounting, research, copy editing, technical and business writing, financial analysis, business acquisition and evaluation assistance or any other services desired relative to marketing, management and public relations. I have experience in preparing business plans and conducting due diligence. I have taught marketing and have been involved in the start-up of three successful media companies, in two of which I was a principal owner.

I have an on-going project of providing accounting services to a non-profit using quickbooks online and would like to take on additional clients.

I have assisted published authors in proofreading and editing. I am an avid reader, completing 15 - 20 books each month and I do on-line book reviews for two different web sites as well as Amaxon.
