How I do business (and life)

I love helping people to succeed.

That’s the single most important thing you need to know about me.

Whether I’m editing something, proofreading, or reviewing a website, I love knowing I’m helping somebody (like you) move forward in their goals.

Seeing them reach their potential brings me joy.

It’s a satisfying feeling.

Why am I telling you this?

Because when it comes to me helping you, you’ll know I’ve got your back – from day one.

Your secret weapon

I understand the stresses that come with creating copy for both the web and for online products.

I know how it feels not knowing what to say or if what you’re saying makes sense.

When you can’t describe what you do or worry the results won’t connect with your reader, it’s frustrating.

And when you’re running a full-time online business, too, who has the time to fix their copy, right?

So why face all of that alone, when you don’t have to.

I’m here for you, whether you’re working on new web content, refreshing older material, or drafting your latest ebook or course. I help you create work that shines, as you intended it to be.

By your side

So this is me, Tom Wong.

I’m based in Portugal but from London originally. I’m a native English speaker with a passion for clarity and communication.

I started working online in 2012 after more than 10 years as a freelance copy editor and project manager for organisations such as the London Development Agency.

Here are some things you need to know about the way I like to work that will help you succeed:

Simple processes for maximum action

I like ease and simplicity.

I believe the less barriers there are in understanding a new topic, the more confident you’ll feel about taking action.

The more you know the right way of doing things – from the very first moment – the faster you can move forward with your ideas.

I help you achieve that.

Clear, straightforward communication

When my clients and I chat, I’m often told it’s like working with a friend.

I’m just a regular person like you. You won’t hear “geeky editing-speak” from me, e.g., Indefinite Pronouns, Preposition Phrases, etc. I like to keep things user-friendly and down to earth.

Soulful collaboration

I love working with people and growing their ideas.

I’ll take away your stress of starting something new. I’ll get you through any problems you’re facing, with much respect.

Simply put, I’m your accountability, partner and sounding off board.

But helping you isn’t the only thing I love doing. When I’m not at my laptop, you’ll find me enjoying European cinema, visiting museums and listening to jazz. I like meeting new people as well –

And I’d love to get to know you. So why not get in touch with whatever you’re working on and find out if we’re a good fit for working together. Learn more here.
