Pickup and delivery of assignments will be
FREE in the Greater Kansas City area. All other delivery will be via e-mail, disk, fax, US priority mail, or overnight express - whichever
option you choose. Postage and/or long distance phone charges accumulated once
the assignment has begun, will be charged to your account.
You may choose from three different price
structures when placing your work with us. These are: "By
the Hour", "By Assignment",
"Monthly Retainer". We will work with you in all
three categories, depending on each assignment. We will complete your assignments in a timely and
efficient manner. However, we will NOT provide you with less than
superior quality. If we do not feel we can complete your work, to your
satisfaction, we will advise you prior to accepting the assignment.
By the Hour
- If your choose, we will charge you for any assignment on an hourly basis. Call
or e-mail for competitive hourly rate. Assume that one hour will produce at least 4 full, single spaced, typewritten
sheets, if input is received from you in legible format. Any assignment may
be performed by the hour, but we will always check to be sure that
it's the most cost-effective way for you to select.

Remember, there are no
additional hidden costs in one hour of our time - no insurance
benefits - no sick leave, vacations, payroll taxes, and no human resources
department to track and add their costs to that hour! It is ONE
FOCUSED HOUR WE ARE SPENDING ON YOUR WORK, without outside
Start and stop times will be documented and
sent to you with your billing. A copy of each assignment's time log will
be kept in our office for reference purposes.
After reviewing the specifications of each
assignment, we may suggest that you have an assignment priced in the "By
Assignment" category. This may be more cost-effective for you.
Pricing By Assignment will not jeopardize the
time or quality of the finished job.
By Assignment - price
determined by the complexity of the assignment and time frame for completion.

In most cases, this is your
most cost-efficient method.
Many times, you do not know how long it will
take to complete an assignment. For instance, you may need a spreadsheet
with 5,000 entries, formulas, graphics, etc. It may contain some complex
formulas and link to other spreadsheets, or it may contain several workbook
sheets in different files (i.e., budget). Paying the hourly fee would be disastrous!
Just the time allotted for setup and testing of a spreadsheet of that magnitude, could take as long as actually entering the
data. Even a small spreadsheet can require more setup time than actual data
However, if you already have a spreadsheet
formatted, then using the hourly fee for data entry will be the most
cost-effective way for you to price this job.
If you are a writer, or student, you may have
a manuscript or thesis that needs to be typed. In most cases, you will have
your own style sheet prepared. In order to produce the final output, using
the hourly rate could consume a great amount of time, and even though you
may consider 4 typed pages per hour a pretty good "deal," a large amount
of time will be consumed learning your particular style sheet (unless
it is formatted on a disk, ready to enter text into.) Your manuscript, or
thesis, probably will require editing, possibly graphics, etc., and that
could require extra time.
Mail merges may appear simple - one letter
and massive copies printed, with envelopes. However, it is much less
expensive to purchase this service "by the job" than by the hour.
If you want a complete mail merge with envelope stuffing and mailing, you
would be wasting money paying a professional to stuff your envelopes at our hourly
Retainer - flat fee per month. Agreed-upon amount
and type of assignments to be determined at the time you request a quote. (go

This pricing structure is best
for the traveling executive, small business owner, or entrepreneur.
You specify what types of service you require each month,
i.e., letters, emails, telephone calls, expense tracking, memos, answering
phone, faxing, billing, accounting services, etc. You tailor hours
during the day you would like our service available, which days of the
week, and types of services you need. We will mutually review the Monthly
Retainer after the first month's work has been completed, or at any other
time you direct. Monthly retainer agreements for preset hours are available
at a discounted rate.
