welcome to eilene zimmerman

I’m an independent journalist (as well as a writer and editor)  with interest and expertise in two broad areas. The first ZimmermanE13_019fincludes entrepreneurship, technology, small business and the workplace; the second includes social issues, social trends and family. I have also written about the intersection of these areas, like this story, which breaks down what it costs to raise a child in the U.S. today or this one, about what happened to the original founders of the social network MySpace.

I have been a regular contributor New York Times‘ Sunday Business and Small Business sections for more than a decade. Most recently I wrote the small business blog/columns “Start” and “Tech Support,” as part of the “You’re The Boss” section. I now write a column about startups and technology for Forbes. For nearly seven years I penned the monthly “Career Couch” column, which ended in 2013. My work has also appeared in the Christian Science Monitor, CNNMoney.com, Salon.com  and Crain’s NY Business, GlamourThe San Francisco ChronicleSlate.comThe Atlantic Magazine’s CityLab, Huffington Post, Real SimplePsychology Today, CNBC.comFortune Small Business and other national publications.

Outside of my journalism work I provide writing, editing and research services for corporations, nonprofits and public relations/strategic communications firms. Please visit  ContentMatters for a more detailed explanation of the services I provide and a listing of clients.

In addition to my professional work, I tutor students at The Monarch School in San Diego. The Monarch School is the largest school for homeless children in the nation. Learn more about the school and how you can lend support here.
