    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

As my profile shows I currently have oDesk contracts with five major IT companies that utilize my skills and expertise to assist with project management and proposal writing consultancy. I had a past client who has left me somewhat questionable feedback due to unhappiness he experienced. I learned from this experience to only communicate with the hiring client on proposal requirements. He had delegated daily communications with an employee of his who provided conflicting guidance. I followed his employee's guidance, which wasn't the strategy that the hiring client had. Let these four active oDesk contracts and my past experiences be your guide on my abilities and experiences.

    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
