  • I had to write a dissertation proposal for a grad school entrepreneurship teacher. I had no idea how to do that and frankly I was too afraid to ask. There was a great article on how to write a dissertation proposal on In that article it offered an alternative solution of just ordering an essay online and that’s what I did. My grad teacher said I had the best proposal in the seminar so i’m overjoyed that I took this opportunity to order an essay online.
