I enjoy motivating people and have a varied business background. As a result, I have a deep well of resources to draw from when working on particular projects. I have authored two books and love the the creative side of that process. I plan on becoming an accomplished author and speaker; traveling the country, inspiring people to reach their dreams. The potential is there for all of us to become something spectacular. With that stated, I would love to help you with your project needs. I possess a strong command of the English language. I will not be satisfied unless you are. I took my last business venture to 22 million dollars living by that very simple principle. Customer service is an art as much as it is a science. I look forward to serving you.
