Jeff Raderstrong – Ghostwriter

Ghostwriter specializing in the intersection of business and social impact. Published in Washington Post, Forbes, MarketWatch, AP and more.

Overview

I'm a ghostwriter and editor that almost exclusively works with leaders and authors at the intersection of social impact, leadership and business. I not only create compelling content, but use that process to help authors think strategically about messaging and positioning within their industry, elevating their brand and increasing their thought leadership.

I've worked with everyone from a director of a community health nonprofit to a pioneer of Web 1.0 to an international investor. I've helped my authors get published in Forbes, MarketWatch, The Washington Post and more. I've worked on books for major publishers like Simon & Schuster, McGraw Hill, and Berrett-Koehler, including crafting successful book proposals.

Here are testimonials from some of my clients:

“Jeff is thorough, reliable and thoughtful in all of his work. Very rarely do you find someone who can be both technical and creative in exploring the best way to capture and share your voice. Working with Jeff continues to be a highlight in both my personal and professional life as he takes into account who we are as entire beings and expertly weaves it in to our stories.”


– JaNay Queen Nazaire, Senior Advisor, PSG


“I often tell Jeff ‘you make me make sense’ because he has a way of listening, asking pertinent questions, and translating into succinct content that connects the dots and captures my voice. He’s amazing to work with and we’re grateful for his partnership.”


– Tynesia Boyea-Robinson, President and CEO, CapEQ, and multi-book author


“I’ve worked with Jeff on various writing projects for over a decade. No matter the assignment, he has consistently demonstrated a sharp editorial eye, and a reliable ability to produce content in the shape—and at the pace—I’ve needed it. He is the very definition of a great collaborator.”


– William Burckart, CEO, The Investment Integration Project (TIIP), and author of 21st Century Investing

After a few years of researching and determining the subject matter, I got stuck trying to figure out how to organize my thoughts. Jeff was able to review the collection of essays I had already written, and provided me with a great outline with suggestions for which pieces to draw on for each section. I still have a ways to go, but I'm unstuck thanks to Jeff's help. Thank you, Jeff.

Jeff is the consummate professional. From my first interactions with him, I felt comfortable that our partnership was going to a positive one. Jeff has a ability to take all of the content that I give him and condense it to make content concise and easy for my readers. I look forward to working with Jeff for years to come.
