Michael Neely

Hello, My name is Michael Neely and I am a freelance writer, marketing consultant, and FOREXtrader.

My name is Michael Neely, and I have been in business for over 20 years, sometimes with successes, sometimes with learning experiences, but always looking for my next success. I started my first business in 1989 after my Honorable Discharge from the US Navy. I started with no formal business education, very little start-up capital, no experience and no clue what I was doing. Three months after I started, I ran out of money, the company I sold for went bankrupt and was being sued by investors and creditors alike. I lost my investment, but gained a lot of great experience and education. It was so much fun, that I decided to do it again...and again...and again!

Since then, the technology revolution led to the information age and a new era of computers, web sites and social media. Since the nuclear submarine I served on in the US Navy was built in 1961 and did not have computers as we know them today, my continuing education became of paramount importance. I taught myself how to use a computer in 1999 by sitting down in front of one and starting to operate the programs and frequenting the Help Section and the F1 key. By 2002, I was doing graphic design and building my own web sites for my businesses.

Today, I own and manage a few blog sites and work on making them better every day. I run my own social media management and work on my branding. I build new web sites and market them with PPC, search engines and social media. I also trade the FOREX markets profitably.

Mt services are also available as a Freelance Marketing Consultant. I help small and medium-sized businesses connect with their customers and potential customers more effectively with social media management, web design and search marketing, content writing and a host of other tools. It has been and will be a continuous learning experience.

I look forward to networking with you and serving your business needs!
