Mike's work includes helping entrepreneurs express themselves clearly, formulating letters, business plans and proposals that match the customer needs. From simple correspondence to the judge to creating and editing pages on Wikipedia, to business plans to convince the bank to offer much-needed capital, it's the customer's voice, made clear. One example was a rewritten grant proposal: The engineer had failed to secure funding the prior year. Mike edited the right places with the right words and bumped the price by 5%. The reviewers were excited to fund the project; they claimed they had been looking for this kind of technology, even though they rejected the engineer's version just one year before.
