"If you are a busy editor like I am, finding and vetting good freelance writers can be a headache. You can avoid that pain by hiring Jason McDowell. I had the pleasure of working with Jason both as a full time writer and a contributing editor and I cannot recommend him highly enough. He has the ability to disseminate complicated, technical information in an engaging, understandable way. His writing is crisp and clean and needs little editing. And a bonus: Jason never misses a deadline. Do yourself a favor, hire Jason McDowell today."

"Hiring Jason to write for us was one of the best decisions we made. We've had trouble in the past with unreliable freelancers who left us in the lurch or took months to write a few simple articles, but we don't have to worry about any of that with Jason. He's a reliable writer who turns content around quickly, and he has required zero coaching from us. He understood what we were looking for right away, and he's never turned in a single article that needed extensive revisions or rewriting. It's really difficult to find talented freelance writers. We were lucky to find Jason."

I ’m supposed to be offended. That’s what Twitter, Facebook and multiple conservative news outlets are all telling me. Why? Because I’m a veteran, and I’m told kneeling on the sidelines of a football game somehow disrespects me. I guess I don’t see it.

The veteran community is as diverse as it is large. As of 2016, there were 21.8 million veterans living in the United States, according to the Census Bureau. There are veterans of every race, religion, sexual identity and sexual orientation. Each of us has our own opinions.

Oh no. The dreaded four-o'clock meeting. Your employees have worked hard all day interacting with clients, implementing ideas, and responding to countless phone calls and emails. It's only ten minutes into the meeting and you're already losing them. Someone is nodding off in the corner. At least two more aren't hearing a word you're saying. Everyone at the table is watching the second hand on the clock tick by.
