    Contest Brief:We are making a video similar to this one https://onlycoin.com/ but our product is different. We will choose the best script for our video. Here you can see more about our product and if you have any questions while writing your script, please contact us ASAP. https://angel.co/peddler Some of our products' features below: Major features of the Peddler app are: 1) Invite Only (at first so that we can control growth and do not grow too quickly for our backend, also to ensure safety of users) 2) Searchable items for sale within a selectable distance range (0-100 miles) using a Geolocation feature 3) Being able to see seller ratings and purchase reviews 4) Being able to see the approximate distance in miles of the buyer/seller 5) Being able to message a buyer/seller through the app 6) Being able to pay $0.99 to promote an item using “Promo Power” which makes your item display with much more frequency for a 30-minute period in order to get the traffic to your item page that you would normally get in three days. 7) Being able to see buyers/sellers within a certain radius/distance and look at their Profile Pages and items for sale. 8) Being able to see how many times an Item Page has been viewed and how many times a Profile Page has been viewed 9) Payment Processing (this is a feature we intend to launch in the near future) that will allow users to pay for items through the app in order to reduce the risk of carrying around hundreds, or even thousands of dollars of cash for large transactions. 10) A filter that categories all items posted for sale 11) A search bar for items, users, or keywords. 12) The ability to mark an item for sale so you can come back to it 13) The ability to see in your Activity Page a) People that have seen your Items today b) People that have seen your Profile today and c) People in your Peddler Network (all active buyers/sellers within a 0-100 mile radius) 14) The ability to invite your friends and see which friends they invite.

    We are looking writer(s) who can write sales copy and e-books. The purpose of this contest is to find and hire one or more writers fulltime ($700-$900 week depending on skill and experience.) We would like you to write a 3 (or so) page lead magnet for this landing page:https://howikis.leadpages.net/dietingmyth-landing3/Please note: The numbers were arbitrarily chosen. You might find there are really only 4 fears dieters have that contribute to their failure.If you don"t know how to write sales copy or know what a lead magnet is, this contest is likely not for you, don"t waste your time. We are looking for serious experienced writers only.Please note: 24 words might look something like "I give myself permission to be skinny. It is safe to lose weight weight and change my eating habits." or "I GIVE MYSELF PERMISSION TO BE HEALTHY, TO LOVE TO EAT HEALTHY FOODS AND TO ENJOY BEING ACTIVE" etc. Again the number of words was arbitrarily chosen in the landing page mockup. We do want the article to boil down to x words they can say to themselves each day to change their self-definition and overcome their fear of change, fear of failure, fear of disturbing close relationships (ie spouse), fear of becoming a different person etc.The idea behind this lead magnet is to give the person information to overcome self sabotage which will include redefining their comfort zone. Your job is to find all the fears that lead to failure and give them the solution to overcome these fears and change their behaviour so they can lose weight.Good writing will include: opening and closing loops(http://www.copyblogger.com/open-loops/), a logical flow that includes a thesis, supporting points, and a conclusion

Résumé

Experience

Political Candidate

Jan 2014 - Jun 2014 (5 months)

Montana House of Representatives

On January 9, 2014, I filed as a candidate for HD 98, the 98th House District of the 100-member House of Representatives of the State of Montana Legislature.<br /><br />I'm running against another candidate for an open seat and the primary election is on June 3. If you live in Montana, please vote! <br /><br />Update: In a 3-way race I got 10% of the vote.

Writer

Jan 2013 - Present (1 year)

Self-Employed

This is my job. I sit at my computer each day writing, editing, and proofreading for others. When I've got a little downtime from that I work on my own books. And lately that requires more internet and social media marketing than anything.

English Teacher

Sep 2008 - Apr 2013 (4 years)

Various Chinese Educational Institutions

For 5 years I worked in China as an English teacher. I had to do a lot with reading, writing, grammar, spelling, and all other manner of headaches involved with teaching young children English as a second language (ESL).<br /><br />I was constantly using computers, writing for my classes, and grading homework for spelling and grammar mistakes. I developed my own PowerPoint games for the classroom, which I now sell on my website.

University Flunky

Jan 2006 - Aug 2008 (2 years)

University of Montana Campus Fitness and Recreation Center

This job was pretty simple. All I had to do was walk around a weight room and clean up, move equipment around, and look busy. Sometimes I'd have to work the equipment desk in the dungeon and pass out towels or assign lockers. Heavy stuff.

Convenience Store Clerk

May 2004 - Oct 2004 (5 months)

Gas Station

Ever go in and buy gas and cigarettes? Yeah, I was that guy for a few months.

Dishwasher

Oct 2003 - Apr 2004 (6 months)

Silver Star Steak House

Did you know that Lyndon B. Johnson was a dishwasher in Texas? Pretty cool, huh? Well having your hands in $h1t up to your elbows ain't!

Bindary Clerk

Sep 2003 - Jan 2004 (4 months)

State of Montana Print Services

This was your typical copy shop setting. We made a lot of notebooks, cut paper, printed everything imaginable. Lots of paper.

Cook

Oct 2001 - Aug 2003 (1 year)

Various Restaurants

When you're in college or university you have a lot of odd jobs. I usually worked in restaurants cooking for people. I've cooked Mexican, Mongolian, Burgers, and...well, I guess that's about it.

Clerk

Jan 1999 - Aug 2001 (2 years)

U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service

I worked in a federal government office. I answered phones, filed biology reports, organized things, made tons of copies for lawyers, updated toxicology databases, and all that jazz.

Office Boy

Jun 1997 - Oct 1997 (4 months)

Helena School District No. 1

When it comes to boring jobs there's few like an office assistant for an under-worked office. But that's where I found myself, on a high school work co-op job. It was easy, the hours were pitiful, and the pay worse. Better than flippin' burgers though, right?

Ice Cream Slinger

Aug 1996 - Jun 1997 (10 months)

Baskin Robbins

I worked at a wonderful ice cream emporium that made dreams into realities and granted wishes an everyday affair. Many of my fellow trainees couldn't withstand the constant rigors of the job, the arctic temperatures, and the sprained scooping-arms. I held out, persevered if you will, and got that $0.25 raise!

Certifications

The Teaching Knowlege Test is another certificate that many foreigners seek in China to bolster their credentials.
