    My first employer was the US Coast Guard as a Damage Controlman. This entailed plumbing, carpentry, shipboard firefighting, chemical biological warfare and environmental protection. My job had me out in the field but I also did a lot of record keeping and imputing data into the computer. For the last 6 years I have worked for a company called PK Safety Supply. I wore many hats and did many jobs. I was customer service which entailed answering phone calls, order impute, estimates, researching for customer applications, walk-ins. I also learned the accounting aspect as far as billing customers and imputing invoices from vendors. I learned the shipping and receiving so I could receive shipments and ship orders out. I also helped with the 3 web sites that PK Safety had. I added item description, updated prices, added new item pages with the pictures, prices, detailed descriptions and any file or instruction manual relevant to the item. Last but not least I was also the gas monitor repair technician for the company. I repaired gas monitors that came in. I replaced pumps, sensors, batteries, and screens and calibrated the instruments.  less

    Let’s face it, there are a lot of writers out there that can give you fast and dirty content - every once in a while they actually write it themselves! If you’re really lucky, they might even sound like they know what they’re talking about 1% of the time… You’re getting something that’s passed through more hands than a cheap glass of liquor down south. I don’t know about you, but for me, that just won’t do. “Isn’t there a better way, Sara?” Yes, yes there is! I’ll show you how to open your audience’s hearts, their minds, their wallets… How to push past all the jaded, skeptical, feel-bad experiences they’ve had in the past and get to a place where they still dream, still hope for a better self, a better partner, better finances, better futures… They’ll finally be able to take the plunge, to take a leap of faith, to embrace the unknown… Because deep down in their hearts they know the only solution to their problems is what YOU have to offer them! Your messaging will appeal to the greedy little part of their brain that makes them buy your products, your services, your ideas… All while thinking it was their idea in the first place. If you’ve read this far, imagine how far I can lead your (future) customers! How much time are you spending trying to write something when you could be growing your business, networking, doing your thing? How much time are you spending editing poorly written articles or hunting down a writer that has mastery over time and space… I mean… the English language? Isn’t your time worth more than that? Of course it is! Almost 100 oDesk clients love me and you will too - because my copy *converts*. Click that contact button and tell me a bit about what you do and what you need.
