“I had long dreamed of becoming a published author because of my passion for my methods and tools. I wanted to get them to a larger audience than my own client base. I encountered frustration with both a ghost writer and a literary agent. These futile attempts felt like I was pushing my goal further away. I shared my frustrations with my long-time professional colleague, Matthew Howard. He stepped into the role of Developmental Editor. He edited my work into a compact, easy-to-read book. The reviews have so far exceeded our wildest imaginations. I highly recommend Matthew. The only caveat is to put your seat belt on. You will move faster and further than you currently imagine possible.”
—Katharine Halpin, Founder of The Halpin Companies and Author of Alignment for Success: Bringing Out the Best in Yourself, Your Teams, and Your Company
“Matthew greatly helped me make my first published book a reality. In addition to asking great clarifying questions and asking me to expound on ideas in my book Financial Wellness, he helped me reach my deadline through encouragement. As a family man and entrepreneur, my life can get extremely busy; Matthew helped me stay on task and stay the course. I can’t wait to have him help me make my manuscripts a reality with many more books.”
—Taras Collum, Sr., Dave Ramsey Certified Financial Coach and Author of Financial Wellness: A Proven System to Change Your Behavior and Start Winning with Money
“It was a pleasure working with Matthew. He took my rough project and smoothed out the edges. He had ideas for changes and additions that really enhanced the final product. He was very fast and accurate. My staff added some embellishment, but we would never have finished the project without Matthew’s help. Looking forward to the next eBook and again working with Matthew.”
“Matthew is a patient, thorough, creative, and resilient editor. He has helped me with all types of editing projects including my books. He converted my books to Kindle, uploaded and worked with me on my covers, and helped me with designers, the book printing companies, and websites. He has been a joy to work with, and I’ve truly appreciated his personal care to detail, expertise, and efficiency. I highly recommend his work.”

What have business owners said about me as an independent administrative services provider?
“Matthew is amazing. He came to The Halpin Companies, Inc. as someone who would transcribe notes and tapes for me into documents, spreadsheets and manuscripts. He quickly morphed into a key team member that we all rely on heavily for process, system, and technological improvements. I can’t imagine running our two businesses without Matthew’s hands-on support on a daily basis.”
—Katharine Halpin, Founder. The Halpin Companies
“Matthew can zero in on what is needed with simply a concept of what you want to achieve. I asked for his help on researching a number of topics; pulling together shards of data into a cogent report; completing web projects that were languishing. His versatility and range of talents also have a very get-it-done focus.”
“Matthew and I worked together on the initial social media marketing campaign for The Alwun House Foundation and I enjoyed our collaboration greatly. His knowledge, focus, and creativity were critical to the project’s success. I highly recommend Matthew.”
