I met Nathan for the first time around 6 years ago, when he was planning to move an editing business from excel to an automated web site. After some meetings and email exchanges we were able to define the initial requirements. Since then it was always easy to agree and plan each feature he was adding to the site. He had a very clear picture of the roadmap for that project and how to prioritize each stage.
Several times he told me about a friend who had an idea for a start-up and if I would be interested about being part of it. So at the end I told him that if he was part of the plan I would jump in it.
Now he is one of stik.com co-founders and has to manage a whole team, where everybody feels great about having him as a boss. He is not just very smart and open minded, he is also a very friendly and easy to talk with man. It is always a pleasure to work with somebody who is conflictless."
Nathan is a force to be reckoned with. He is a tireless worker and absolutely brilliant. To list all of Nathan's incredible qualities could easily turn into a dissertation, but I'll try to name a few.
First, he's as smart as they come (and then some) and can do/learn just about anything at an extremely high level. From back-end development to sales to identifying new and creative opportunities for Stik, Nathan is unbelievably sharp and insightful.
He's also excellent at managing people. He leads by example, working 24/7 to make everything he does a success, and is fully supportive of all his employees, always making sure that each and every one is in a position to thrive.
Finally, he is ultimately humble. Despite being so talented across the board, he never lets ego get in the way of his work. He is the first to acknowledge when he doesn't know something, is always truly interested in feedback, and never micro-manages.
The best way I can think to wrap up everything that Nathan brings to the table is to say that a company composed entirely of Nathans would undoubtably be a massive success. Stik would not be where it is today without the one of him we have."
I met Nathan through the writing-center.com, because I needed help editing my essays for business school application. I met some technical difficulties through the process, but I was blown away by the services of the website and Nathan. More specifically, MBA application process is stressful and I was pressed for time. I did not expect Nathan to get back to me so quickly and so cheerfully. My subsequent interaction with him and other writers made me a firm believer of the writing center. There are many similar outfits out there, but I think Nathan really stands out in terms of making you feel unique and special, and really giving the impression that he enjoys his work helping you."
I sent Nathan and his team a document for graduate school application, the statement of purpose. The price is clearly written on the website, and there was no hidden cost at all. The communication was a breeze without any delays. I am very satisfied with the service Nathan and his team provides. The quality was beyond expectation, and I received the completed job earlier than I thought. Though there are other agencies doing similar work and I've used some by myself, Nathan and The Writing Center impressed me with the low cost without compromising the quality. By the way, I was admitted to Harvard University in the end, and you can tell how important that statement of purpose was."
Nathan and I went to Harvard together, and I submitted very few essays over our four years there without having him at least look them over. He has a great ability to make writing more efficient, more direct and, in turn, more powerful. I don't believe I ever did worse than an "A-" on a paper that he edited. Moreover, he's quick to return emails, can very effectively edit a lengthy essay in just hours and is constructive and clear in his criticism. Nathan and the-writing-center.com are a fantastic resource."
Firstly, I came to be acquainted with Nathan while working as an essay consultant. In particular, we collaborated with each other when I took an initiative to hold an essay contest in Korea. Nathan helped me with the contest as a reviewer and commentator. Thanks to his help, I could complete the whole process of the contest. I appreciate his strong commitment to essay review and helping junior students."
Thanks Kwang Soo -- I appreciate your kind feedback!
Nathan is one of the strongest editors I have ever encountered. If "brevity is the soul of wit", Nathan is U Thant. He always find a way to say more with less, the hallmark of exceptional writing. I trust Nathan for all of life's most important written communication and would recommend him and The Writing Center to all my friends and family. Thank you Nathan for making me not only a better writer, but a clearer thinker as well."
As far as I know, Nathan is good at everything! He's frighteningly smart and great at managing a business and motivating his employees. He's also very understanding and doesn't get upset over honest mistakes (ahem). I feel so lucky to be working for him and I'm looking forward to learning as much as I can from him."
It was a great pleasure to be associated with Nathan at Stik.com.
