    Business services and administration - Start-up counseling

    Australia - Last active: 4 months ago - Tests: 10

    Born in a competitive environment where a pause was an error and an error was a catastrophe I quickly learned that desires had to be gained too. A programming and IT industry background gave me an analytical thinking that, coupled with a natural cool blood and patience, makes me able to solve the most complex issues and obtain the best results even complex tasks with pressing deadlines. Well before the legal age I had to take the reins of a family business, giving it a x3 income boost in less than two years, while my home country faced one of the worst crises in the recent economical and political history. That was only the sparkle that started it all; I've already two successful start-up under my belt (from initial business plan to deploying) and the chance of new challenges makes my mind rev faster. I'm an "hands on" approach lover and if I choose to undertake a project I always succeed and exceed expectations. When I wished to learn about web and social media marketing I ended up writing a book aimed at new start-up and entrepreneurs. I'm a great buyer, I love it; give me an internet connection and an Excel spreadsheet and you'll have the best buy at the lowest possible price. When I find a good offer, then I'll make it a bargain. I've experience in leading and coaching small to big sized teams (50 people) through complex tasks and tight deadlines. As an added bonus I'm passionate in everything is complex and, thanks to a continuous learning process, my knowledge cover a vast amount of different topics.
