Client feedback

Megan was wonderful to work with, her writing was fantastic, and she made the process extremely painless for us. I’d recommend her to anyone looking for professional, timely writing.
— Nadine, Healthcare SaaS Marketing Director
Our experience with Megan was absolutely first rate! She brings an extraordinarily broad skill set and is a constant fountain of creativity. I’ve already hired her again on another project and look forward to a long collaborative relationship with her!
— Ozzie, Startup Advisor & Entrepreneur
Professional, hard working and experienced.
— Ronan, Civil Engineer & Entrepreneur
Megan went above and beyond on this project. She also showed utmost flexibility with scheduling, which I truly appreciated. Highly recommended.
— Margaret, Healthcare SaaS Account Manager
The initial reason I chose Megan from 25+ (often cheaper) applicants to help with our startup company’s business planning and marketing, was her ability to articulate how she would help solve the problems our company faced.

Megan used her skills in high-level business planning and strategy, marketing and design in conjunction with her experience working with the construction industry to help me achieve my goals as a director. Her ability to see things I had not, and her willingness to use and share her formidable skill set, were the key traits that I was most impressed with. I will be hiring Megan again shortly.
