All positions are part-time, independent contractor positions.

Our business is growing nicely, so we're looking for a smart, energetic writer to help write blog posts about clients and relevant topics on the Formation Solutions blog. At present, the work will be done remotely (from your home), and part-time hours will be flexible. Much of the work will be done by email and phone.

You'll be writing for our Formation Solutions blog (and potentially for our sites about the entrepreneurs of Venice and the entrepreneurial environment in Santa Barbara). Part of what we do at Formation Solutions is offer tips, resources, and other helpful information for entrepreneurs. We'll also be writing profiles about entrepreneurs that inspire us and the business that they're building.

Generally, we'll provide you with some information, and you'll write and post the article to the blog. If all goes well in the beginning, we'll look to you to take the initiative. You'll pay attention to upcoming events, interview current and past clients, and showcase new ideas and personalities in the community of entrepreneurs.

If you have familiarity with social networking, we may enlist you to follow your article posting with tweeting, facebooking, and whatever other 'ing is the new 'ing thing at that point.
