Flexibility at Work for Thousands Since 1997. Here’s a Sample (Excerpts)
“I now telecommute from home two days each week saving me 8 hours of commute time…The [proposal] template was so easy to follow…” Wayne Patton, VP, Marketing of Diversified Financial Associates, Los Angeles, CA
“I received several compliments on the proposal…I am now working three days a week and I am loving it…I have a balanced personal and professional life.” Tina Hinzman, Senior Work Process Tools Trainer, Ellicott City, MD
Janna O’Neill (pictured), a Kansas City sales executive for a pharmaceutical company, knows about pushing the limits in her day.
“I literally did not stop from 5AM to 11PM. Not one time. It was a fast life. I couldn’t keep track of sports practices and appointments.”
“I would come home at the end of the day tired and cranky, having ‘left it all on the table’ at work.”
Janna thought of quitting her job, but instead used my Proposal Package to get the relief she needed.
“I finally feel a balance that was lacking in my life. I don’t let anything slip through the cracks…I can attend all of the special events in my kids’ lives. It’s so fun because you get to know them more. I’m a lot more tuned in to their lives.”
“Many thanks for the research and structure you provide to create a winning proposal; my compressed workweek schedule has been approved.” Diana Mezick, Administrative Assistant, Bethesda, MD
“I’ve tried to convince management that I could make a limited hour schedule work before and I’ve always been turned down. This time, my flawless proposal got through the brick wall!” Lorraine Sitton, Senior Paralegal, Ponte Vedra Beach, FL
“I honestly anticipated cashing in on the guarantee, but after reading the telecommuting proposal package, it was well worth the price. It highlighted a few areas which I would have failed to address if I were to create the proposal myself…”
“The response was overwhelmingly positive: I was granted full-time telecommuting, a promotion and a raise!” Jonathan Crane, Royalty Analyst, Intellectual Property
“I have to say you have an excellent product…your Proposal Package helped me put together a detailed, inclusive document that was successful in helping to convince my employer that a 4-day work week would not only benefit me, but also the company…” Danielle Ouendag, Environmental Affairs Manager, Grand Rapids, MI
“I successfully negotiated a 2 days per week work from home situation at a big software company using the telecommuting template.
At first I was hesitant to spend money on it, but it was some of the best money I’ve ever spent. It covers completely with the entire scenario, clever rebuttals to hesitations, and a mitigation plan.
I can’t say enough about how professional and effective it is, and how much time it saved me.” Charis Loveland, Software Professional, Boston, MA
