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.
