          My brother-in-law has approached me about going into business with him in a home cleaning franchise. I’ve always heard one should never go into business with relatives. Is that true?

My professional training is in banking and finance. I held credit & lending, business origination, relationship management, and budget + planning positions in multinational banks / companies, medium sized businesses, and also worked independently as a consultant. In 2013, I founded my professional organizing & project management business as a solopreneur. I am very familiar with social media marketing for emerging businesses, can address small business owners' finance related questions, and provide guidance to organize their time, papers and staff better in order to stay in control and not get overwhelmed.

How I can help you

Most of my career (+25 years) has been in the media business, primarily in a top managerial, head financial or sales role. Over the course of my career, I have managed human resources, IT, finance, general accounting, sales, marketing, customer service, production and other areas. I have proven experience in leading large teams, start-ups, acquisitions, change management, developing policies, etc. I believe strongly in developing and mentoring staff. Additionally, as traditional media business evolved it afforded me the opportunity to become involved with multi-platform sales, including web and mobile. I am well-versed in general accounting and business systems, and have proven strengths in supervision, planning, analytics, business metrics, negotiation, pricing, cost reduction, media buying, government relations, in addition to public speaking skills.

I have always been deeply involved with nonprofit organizations in various capacities that have included officer, director, management, fundraising and event organization since college. Probably most significant was my tenure as a board member with the Boys’ and Girls’ Clubs of East County, where I was on their marketing committee. Until moving recently, I held an elected position with the County of San Diego (3 terms, Planning), and was the former president of a community organization, GMIA.  Additionally, I have experience both from a financial and logistics side with events.  These included San Diego's Big Bay Boom (not 2012’s or 2013’s) and six Pacific Islander cultural/sports events (I am their media and PR director).
