    I am an independent Wordpress developer and as a professional background I have three years experience as a Java developer working for large and multinational companies and working with SCRUM methodologies. I was involved in projects for banks, pharmaceutical companies, healthcare companies, insurance companies and other fields of business. In the last 6 months I've also focused on two new directions which I like more: Wordpress development and business consultant (coach). My Wordpress area of work and skills covers theme customization, CSS customization, e-commerce solutions, plugin integration, presentation websites, membership websites, forums, social networks, daily deals, portfolio websites, conversion PSD to Wordpress, SEO. The notes on the tests represents a proof of my skills. As a business consultant I provide custom strategies for each client (according to the activity domain and the market) in order to help him achieve a significant growth for his business and eventually achieve a profitable business that works fully without him, without the owner. The business skills that I possess are related to: marketing strategies, marketing campaigns, sales strategies, business control, differentiating from competition, strategies for increasing number of sales per customer, strategies to increase profitability, business automation, personal productivity, financial strategies and advises.  less

    I get a kick out of solving problems and shaping new businesses. It's one of the key reasons I quit the corporate world and set up my own small business consulting company. The more complex the problem, the more interesting it is and the more gratifying it is to solve. If you have a business problem that is hampering your ability to generate more revenue, streamline your operating costs, not bringing in as many customers as you'd like or isn't positively impacting your brand, then we should talk. I will work with you to understand your issue, partner with you to determine the best possible solution and work with you in implementing the solution. Helping small businesses and entrepreneurs accomplish what they set out to do is a passion that has not petered out in the many years I have been consulting. If anything, it has grown stronger with more success. Having a brilliant business idea and setting up a business around it are two very different things. One needs creativity, passion and critical thinking while the other requires discipline, follow-through, pragmatism, innovation and systematic implementation. I understand this very well and I can work with you to establish an organization and business that is set for long term sustainability. As an entrepreneur and consultant, I learn as much from my client and they do from me, and I apply what I've learnt on future projects. Over time, this has helped me become a better consultant and develop knowledge and skill across a wide range of industries. I work collaboratively; I simply do not believe in working any other way. My focus areas: 1. Business Planning and Market Research - I provide business planning and market research services for a wide range of budgets depending on the needs of the client. 2. Sales, Marketing and Business Development - Right from strategy development to the creation of sales and marketing collateral, implementation and project management of sales and marketing plans, I provide end-to-end services. 3. Business Process Design/Improvement/Reengineering - Whether you want to establish business processes for your new company or are looking to streamline and improve your business processes, I can work with you in developing robust and sustainable processes for your business. 4. Quality Management (Lean Six Sigma, ISO 9001) - Are you looking to implement a Lean Six Sigma improvement project or get consulting support to prepare for your ISO 9001 audit? I can help. 5. E-Business Management/E-Commerce (Non-IT) - Whether you have an existing e-commerce business that you want to scale up or you're setting one up from scratch, my experience in setting up a wide range of e-commerce businesses will add value. 7. Project Management - Whatever your business landscape, my extensive project management experience will make sure that your project runs smoothly, on time and within budget. I am very comfortable managing virtual teams and managing freelancers. I've delivered over ten successful projects in the last year alone. 8. Learning Strategy and Instructional Design - Whether you're looking to get expert opinion on the effectiveness of your training curriculum or want to develop a framework for trainer effectiveness, my experience heading training functions of large global corporations will come in handy. Right from developing content for ILT to delivering training programs, you will find a partner for all your training needs here. Industry Experience: 1. Publishing - I know the ins and outs of Amazon, Nook and other POD and e-book publishing platforms. I know what it takes to run a successful publishing business. 2. International Trade 3. Contact Center Operations - Having managed various contact centers throughout my career, I have in depth knowledge of how to set up, manage and scale any contact center operation. 4. Financial Services 5 - E-Commerce  less

    I am a go-getter with the keen ability to identify potential profit and growth opportunities. A Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration and Marketing paired with extensive hands-on experience in the Business, Marketing, Accounting and Entrepreneurial fields ensure that I am capable of supporting the analysis, planning, implementation and evaluation of your project. I enjoy learning about new market trends and find clever ways to use my knowledge in the development of products and services. I have very strong communication skills in both English and Spanish – but most importantly, I acknowledge the importance of open, transparent communication when building strong client and business relationships. I take pride in having effective problem solving skills and the determination to meet project performance expectations. In the past, I have worked for the profit and non-profit sectors.  less

    I create plans and models for entrepreneurs and startups. My documents help them pitch to investors, banks, and potential business partners. Many of my clients are founders, organizations and companies seeking to create business and marketing plans, business models, full pitch decks or online presentations. Among my past clients I have financial institutions, food distribution companies, entertainment start-ups, media websites and green energy companies, plus many nonprofit organizations. My best clients are the ones with new and disruptive ideas. In my process I ask many questions, do a lot of research, propose new ideas, explore diverse channel of distribution, provide a lot of graphics, create models using a canvas business model system, run numbers and create financial projections. At the end, I do everything I can to create useful and powerful documents for my clients. "OFF-LINE" I have my own business consulting firm working from New York City, (EST) but available around the clock. I have an MPA from Cornell University (USA) and I speak English and Spanish. ----- MY PHILOSOPHY on writing business plan is simple: every business plan is unique and every client deserves a professional and timely service. I do not over promise, I do what I said I will do. Simple. Some business and marketing plans are designed to get a loan from a bank, others to get potential investors excited about a project. Most of the time is a tool to raise money, but all the time should be an instrument to guide your future. In my work I get inspiration from big angel and venture capitalist firms, such as the giant investor Sequoia Capital; that has invested in companies like Apple, Google, YouTube, PayPal, Instagram, Yahoo!, Atari, Kayak, Zappos, and LinkedIn. I always suggest my potential clients to read what they are asking from people that want to get funds from them: www.sequoiacap.com/ideas They are not asking for a 100-page business plan. They believe that the best founders are clear thinkers. ----- MY PROCESS is also simple. I start with your ideas and your initial data and work until you are completely satisfied. I want to invite you to see my process of writing business plans here: http://goo.gl/ugB0l1 Before you hire me I give you a very clear plan of what I will do for you, step by step, with a feasible timetable. Again, I do not over-promise, I do what I said I will do. By hours, this is a breakdown of my typical development process: 1) Business Consulting (2-6 hours) 2) Market (Research and Plan) (4 to 8 hours) 3) Financials (4 to 10 hours) - 3 to 5 years of Sales, Profit & Loss, Cash Flow and Balance Sheet forecasts. 4) Writing (8 to 16 hours) - following the format of California VC firm Sequoia Capital and adding charts, maps, graphics, etc., to clarify your business pitch. My tools are 1)Internet for research, 2) Skype for communication, 3) ASANA to organize my work, 4) Excel to plot all financial projections, 5) PowerPoint to design pitch decks, and 6) a few RedBulls to work overnight and on time. Everything will start with a Skype chat and we go from there. ----- TERMS I work around your budget. I know that startups are not cash cows. Because every plan is unique, I like to discuss final payment terms during the interview process. My original bid is a guide for the client, and is based, usually, on a week of work (about 40 hours). Depending on the nature, format and stage of your business project, my work could take about a week and in some cases several weeks. My hourly rate is $80, and usually will take me 20 to 40 hours of work to develop a comprehensive plan. If you hire me as a fixed rate contract, I operate on a 3-payment basis. The first 20% is due at project start, a second payment of 40% at an agreed upon middle milestone, and the final 40% upon completion of the project. ------- SAMPLES Looking for samples of my work? Here is a list of some of my past projects: IT service start-up in Germany, data center in Uganda, online food service platform in Brazil, crowdfunding site in California, niche social network in the UK, nonprofit in Mozambique, real estate fund in Taiwan, TV production company in Los Angeles, agro-business in Nigeria, entertainment company in Holland, publishing service in Spain, beverage company in the UK, entrepreneurial education center in Dubai, pharmaceutical start up in Lebanon, electric company in Saudi Arabia, and several iOS native app start-up in Australia, Ukraine, Puerto Rico and USA. Sample Business plan - http://goo.gl/4AUmUy Sample Pitch Deck - http://goo.gl/YcIMWa If you request a connection via Linkedin you can see past clients’ recommendations here: www.linkedin.com/in/josebello ----- FINAL NOTE: If you do not hire me, let me wish you good luck in your future business. Keep it up and dream big. Jose  less

    Every successful business begins with one person and a vision. Inevitably, that vision must segue to a strategic plan and focused execution. The key element to success is simple; everyone involved must execute precisely and in a common collaborative framework to advance the charter. There must be a commitment to a full-on, often exhaustive effort and focus. This is a space I've lived in for over 20 years, successfully and repeatedly. My strengths lie in visionary business planning and strategy. I can take role as an advisor, collaborator, and/or team member to execute on plans or strategic initiatives. I develop Business Plans, Strategic Plans, Operational plans (Marketing, Sales, and/or Technical), create financials, and help recruit top management. I help clients positively deliver results to their bottom line, become "viable", and position for a high(er) probability of an 'exit' when the time is right. I help deliver organized, business-focused narratives and messaging that inform, both internally and to external stakeholders, whether they be vendors, clients or investors. I provide Business Advisory services, across multiple disciplines and verticals, for companies that can benefit from my experience, expertise & help. I find many with great business "concepts" but not yet matured to a level where they can effectively advance their goals or secure capital. My time and focus is now spent helping start up and early stage companies achieve success while enjoying some of the fruits of my career to date. Whether a start up, early stage, or middle market, I approach every engagement in the same manner. I first establish an understanding of the business as it exists today. I review the current business structure at a granular level. I peel back the layers to clearly assess the business, the market dynamics, the team, and strategy. I request information on financials and ongoing capital requirements. I need to see the business in its current iteration and then sit down with you to discuss both the 'big picture' and what the goal line looks like to you. Early on, we may well reach a point where I share less-than-good news; There's still work to be done. But it is at this point where I see clients reach a level of cognitive realization, who understand and agree with my position or feedback, and that's where things can start to get exciting. Vision cannot stand on its own..., it begins with what I like to call "the big idea" but it must then evolve into a collective strategy with all members focused and on board. Then, with the right team, and even a little luck, success can manifest itself in a successful outcome. This path can sometimes get mired in the order of things yet it all comes down to one simple equation; "structured execution". Building a great team.., making sure capital is available and properly spent.., knowing where to position against competition..., these things and more become essential to the ultimate goal of business success. A great business concept can not exist in a vacuum. It requires a sound, executable strategy and lots of serious hard work. Allow me to hear about your business goals and strategy at a high level. The outcome of that dialogue will tell us both if there's a fit and whether it makes sense to engage in a mutually beneficial relationship that helps you advance your goals. To your success and to making your 'big idea' a reality.  less

    To assist small business owners realize their full potential by offering consultation, analytical, management and technical services which will increase margins and bolster the company brand. In a nut-shell, I help make things happen and dreams come true. Do you want the freedom to spend more time with family and friends? Travel the world? Live spontaneously? Imagine walking the great Wall of China, Swimming in Bora Bora, Climbing a Mayan Temple, or Leaning Tower of Pisa. Perhaps go snorkeling at the Great Barrier Reef or simply watch the sun set from your favorite resort. I have done all of this and much more, and I can help YOU realize these types of dreams too! It begins with a stable and efficient business. My experiences which span 24 years in business and 32 years with computers are concentrated on development, sales, marketing and analysis. These skills have been exercised across several industries including: Retail, eCommerce, Hospitality, Fitness and Travel. I will work closely with you to understand your exact needs, goals and ambitions. Together, we will discuss the situation and brainstorm potential scenarios until we narrow the field to a working solution. If you require ongoing support, I will be there for you when the time comes to review progress and suggest/implement tweaks as your path or details change. Helping people achieve life and business goals is a passion. I have personally earned a lifestyle which has taken me around the world and experience things most will only see in a magazine or television. It is my purpose and goal to help others create a situation for themselves, where they too have this opportunity to live out loud. During the interview process, I will listen carefully to your concerns and weigh all options and action plans before moving forward. I am not looking for a 'job' as much as long term partners. If you have a great idea, a solid team and sufficient finances to back it up, but are lacking a piece of the puzzle... I may be able to help you. As much as you will interview me, I will interview the situation and will only accept contracts where I believe the client will ultimately be successful. My schedule is purposefully left fluid as much as possible to accommodate client deadlines, the beach and sanity. We are most productive when we are energetic and full of life. I can help you create a similar situation for yourself. Due to confidentiality reasons, previous business relationships will not be displayed on a public profile. Please do not ask for samples of business, marketing or strategy plans as these files are critical to the survival of a company, could violate NDA's, unduly expose IP rights and open the doors for legal action. You should expect the same level of respect and confidentiality from me. If you are serious about taking the next step. If you honestly have a burning desire and are ready to do whatever it takes... we need to talk. Rate schedule as of November 2013: Project/Team management, business development, or InfusionSoft related tasks totaling up to 30 hours per week. $40/hr Long-term consulting and/or management of less than 5 hours per week. $100/hr + oDesk fees Sporadic consulting on a 'as needed' basis. $100-250/hr + oDesk fees, dependent on specific industry experience. I have been fortunate enough to work with serious clients on oDesk who appreciate value and have grown multimillion dollar companies. I hope to continue this trend and look forward to contributing to like minded and successful business owners who understand what it takes to live the dream.  less
