My clients jokingly call me their "secret weapon" -- but there's truth to that.
The people I work with are often wildly talented in one particular field. They're professional athletes, Silicon Valley innovators, and any flavor of "impressive" you can imagine.
One thing they might not be the best at is writing. Everyone has the option of either working with the writing ability they have, or hiring a ghostwriter who has dedicated their life to learning how to capture a reader's attention.
Working with a Ghostwriter
Working with a ghostwriter might seem daunting at first, but it's just like any other working relationship. We might be literature nerds or Oxford comma buffs, but we have pride in our work and want to help translate your unique voice to the page.
I ghostwrite all sorts of things (books, blog posts, articles, speeches, reports, etc.) for my clients so they can focus on what they do best. They don't have to agonize over comma placements or word choice.
My clients share with me what they want communicated, and I handle it.
Your Colleagues and Competitors Work with Ghostwriters to Get an Edge
You might even be surprised how many of your colleagues work with ghostwriters to communicate clearly and confidently.
I once had a client at a major tech company hire me after she realized that all of her co-workers were secretly working with ghostwriters!
At the end of the day, it's about learning how to work from a place of strength, rather than a place of weakness. Your time is valuable, and you should be focusing on honing what you're good at, and hire a strong writer who can help you articulate your thoughts in a powerful way.
Great Writing Changes Careers
Great writing is clear communication that has the intended effect on your reader.
Whether that's to convince or to engage or inspire, the pen is mightier than the sword -- but only if it is wielded properly.
