Typing away in their Culver City loft, the writers and copyeditors at Creative Confusion give words to a range of commercial advertising projects. Modeled after a classic advertising agency, the team has crafted ad copy for brands such as Levi's, Modcloth, and Forever 21. They've also spearheaded creative development for companies with services ranging from SEO-friendly product descriptions and social-media maintenance to general business copy. Each writer is matched to a project by specialty and works with individual clients to achieve the brand's ideal tone and voice.
These writers can also compose more personal projects. They may wax poetic in playful confessions, birthday dedications, and wedding vows, or execute creative résumés and cover letters. Drawing from a client's sensibilities or submitted personal statements, they also tailor unique letters on themes such as No Reason But I Love You and The Quick Brown Fox Jumps Over the Lazy Dog. The writers also copyedit and ghostwrite pieces for other writers upon request. Regardless of the assignment, Creative Confusion guarantees that their work passes Copyscape's regulations for written content.

When they were growing up, Nandy and Maya McClean's mother always encouraged them to follow their dreams. The seemingly simple advice instilled a boldness in the daughters that spurred them on to forge successful careers in the entrainment industry. As life coaches, the duo helps others take charge of their own lives. Using a three-step process, coaches first help their clients identify the negative belief systems that hold them back. Then they discuss the client's goals for his or her career, finances, and personal life, building the scaffolding that will help construct those dreams. Finally, coaches help pin down a concrete plan of attack, so that clients can move toward a future of success.
