I ghostwrite articles for entrepreneurs.
YES, I can help you get attention online.
YES, I can save you a lot of time and effort.
YES, I can expose your best ideas to a much wider audience.
YES, I ghostwrite all sorts of articles for smart people in many different industries and functions: financial services, consulting, IT, healthcare, legal, social media, HR, and even oil and gas.
I love my job. Smart and talented people tell me their best ideas, then my job is to share their insights in a clear and compelling way. Every client makes me smarter; in return, I help more people benefit from their skills.
I'm also a social media pro.
One key difference between myself and most ghostwriters is my understanding of social media. I'm active on Twitter and SlideShare, and have over a quarter million followers on LinkedIn. So I don't just write articles; I write articles that engage readers and encourage them to like, share and comment.
Here's a quick overview of how my clients and I work together. If you don't want to watch the video, read this instead.
Careers do not come with instructions. There are no "hard and fast" rules, no simple formulas for success. This is because you will work for - and with - other human beings, and people are complex and confusing creatures.
I'd much rather work in a culture in which people matter, and talent is something to be cultivated rather than rented. Growing by 12% a year, 20 years in a row is not my aspiration. Growing to my full potential - and helping others do the same - is so much more important.
Remember this: the higher you are in the chain of command, the greater the impact you can have by sharing credit, or giving it away entirely.
Our time is a gift. I worry that we take it for granted. Roughly 73,500 years ago, humans were migrating from Africa towards other parts of our planet. The Sumatera volcano exploded, changing Earth’s climate. All but a few thousand humans perished. Our race nearly ended, due to natural causes.
The most likable people generate their own energy. Their attitude does not depend on everything going well and everyone being so grateful for their good work. They are just positive because they are positive. Here's how to move in this positive direction...
Intuition, argues Gerd Gigerenzer, a director at the Max Planck Institute for Human Development, is less about suddenly "knowing" the right answer and more about instinctively understanding what information is unimportant and can thus be discarded.
If you’re like most people, you mess up a lot of career opportunities because you don’t pay attention. You accidentally slight or outright insult others, without even knowing it.
"I'm powerless, too." It's tempting to think your boss - or his boss, or her boss - has all the power. That's not how it feels to them. Everyone feels stuck in the middle. Even your CEO must contend with the board, investors, regulators, and the media.
Last month, I was pretty stressed out, thanks mostly to a seemingly endless stream of minor, but irritating, problems. It got so that I was reacting negatively almost immediately to each new development. Some people spend entire years in this state.
One morning last week, I made myself a bowl of oatmeal, poured an iced tea, and headed towards my home office. But I was already preoccupied with work and not really paying attention. My toe caught the edge of the second step. Wham! Oatmeal and tea splattered everywhere.
Now you know my social media strategy. The secret is out.
