I'm starting a new brand new business and could use a lot of help.
I bake cheesecakes and vegan cheesecakes. Everyone who's tried my cheesecake said it was divine, and they never would have guessed it was vegan.
(It could be someone who does all three - I don't know the finer points of how they interact; how they are similar; how they are different.)
Business Card Designer
Cake boxes or "cake takers", milk crates, and bungi cords to keep everything from moving during transport.
Perhaps a little pickup truck or a mini-van, for when business picks up and I am delivering lots of cheesecakes (I would prefer a "green" vehicle that gets better gas mileage than what I'm currently getting).
In addition, I also need to find an industrial kitchen I can rent--any ideas?
Services I offer:
Administrative Assisting (locally, possibly worldwide if all necessary files are electronic)
I type correspondence and do data entry. I've expanded my Excel skills this year. I designed a spreadsheet to put together all the pieces and calculate my parent's taxes (they each run their own business). I developed another Excel file to help a local business woman calculate invoices and paystubs.
Copyediting (English language worldwide)
I help you put your best word forward.
I have a degree in English and spent 10 years as an Editor at a nonprofit organization. My boss there said, "That she will catch typos is a foregone conclusion."
I am familiar with both The Chicago Manual of Style and The Associated Press Stylebook and Libel Manual.
I proofread and copyedit anything that's written: websites (I also check each link to make sure it works and goes where it says it's going), book galleys, blogs, magazine articles, business correspondence, flyers--you name it.
I also give tips and suggestions on why I recommend making certain changes.
Reconciling/Entry Level, Double Entry Bookkeeping (locally, possibly worldwide if all necessary files are electronic)
I can keep both your words and your numbers in line.
I have been treasurer for several organizations, and often reconcile my personal check register manually, with no calculator. I then use a calculator to double-check everything (yes; it all checks out).
Courier (local only)
For either businesses or individuals, I can be the errand-runner: deliver urgent paperwork across town; take a package to the post office; pick up packages; pick up prescriptions, etc.
Organizational Consulting (local for on-site; worldwide for long-distance advice)
I help you save time by organizing the things you use each and every day for optimal efficiency. I can also help you organize a small space so it doesn't look and feel so cluttered.
Feng-Shui Consulting (local for on-site; worldwide for long-distance advice)
I will combine with organizational consulting if requested, or you may have just Feng Shui (pronounced Fung Schway) consulting on its own.
Have you heard about Feng Shui? Would you like to try it out but don't know where to start? I can help. We can discuss small scale- or large-scale projects; homes; offices; apartments; dorm rooms, etc.
Computer Tutoring (local for on-site; worldwide for long-distance advice)
I've used the mail merge feature extensively in Word 2003. I know quite a few other features of Word as well, and can usually figure out the newer versions without too much trouble.
I've also worked in Excel, Publisher, and WordPerfect, among others.
In addition, I can help you set up or move your system and get all the cables properly connected. Sorry, I don't do networks - just individual computer systems.
And of course, cheesecakes (local only)
My current flavors are pumpkin and peppermint.
I'd really like to find someone who can design/build/market/search-engine optimize my website.
I will consider a trade with anyone, even if you're not a website designer. ;-)
Thanks for stopping by and hope to hear from you soon!
