    Ljiljana P.

    MBA

    Serbia - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 11 - Portfolio: 17

    Over the years I have developed myself and others in various business and leadership skills. My recent clients were family owned small businesses, but also Fortune 500 companies whose brands are in our homes wherever we might live at the moment. I studied and worked in several countries around the world - US, Switzerland, Middle East and Europe - in start-ups and operations management of multinationals. I consult and coach international clients mostly in business management and marketing. Am often writing or editing training or other manuals for them. Since Nov 2012. I am also the principal consultant for WiFi Austria Institute's 'HR Manager' course. This is 9 month course for which I also develop training material. My blog is No Panic Management and if you Google me you will find few more websites I made, with copies I wrote. My name is on first page of Google (when searching for it.) My objective is to work only on things I like, with people I like. They are professionals with integrity and attitude. It means they like and respect business, as well as others they work with. Do not work for companies who do not treat employees well. Ultimately I am looking for ways to help business grow and create jobs, whether it is mine or anyone else's company. That is a greater mission behind any ''small'' task I undertake. I take different jobs at my spare time, those I can do well, enjoy, and those that enhance my business experience while delivering result. Should you have a good business proposal or idea for me, I'd be happy to hear it. Am always welcoming new opportunities for business development and mutually beneficial partnerships.

    Jose Bello

    Business Consulting

    United States - Last active: 7 days ago - Tests: 1 - Portfolio: 11

    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 - www.glaction.com. 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

    Senior Global HR Consultant, Recruiter, Strategic Business Partner

    United States - Last active: 11 days ago - Tests: 9 - Portfolio: 8

    Please note before reading my profile: Do not hire me to do a professional job and then start limiting my ability to do it properly. I do not do anything halfway....I do it correctly or not at all. If you have time or financial constraints, these issues need to be communicated up-front. Thank you! A consummate Senior Global Human Resources Consultant and Recruiter with a proven track record of success. I am seeking a position where I can utilize my organizational & concentrated multi-tasking skills to provide value-added HR services to a company's ROI & success. If you are a small employer, have no HR presence on site, and are looking for a strong HR professional who can manage your entire HR function remotely, look no further! With an impeccable work ethic, all tasks get 110% effort, as I assume personal ownership & responsibility for the quality of the task(s). I am also a creative, analytical thinker and possess the ability to analyze each situation and use business sound judgment. I have a strong business acumen and am a self-starter, not dependent on others to give me day-to-day supervision on a project. A client can always trust that I will do what I say I can do--accountability & responsibility, among my strongest values. While you may find an HR professional who charges less per hour, you will not find anyone who will be as committed to assisting you with your HR needs as I, and each of my clients will attest that they get far more than they ever expect from me!

(lol) In-depth SEO audit & reports of you and you competitors, Marketing + Operations Analysis, Coaching from concept through launch+, plus many other dreadfully boring things nobody but me seems to actually like doing. Frustrated and need intelligent help with the abundance of techie tasks holding you back and eating up time? Making sense of conversion rates, online behavioral marketing, funnels, landing pages, email campaigns, CRMs, social media, memberships, HTML this, CSS that...

TURN 'WORK' INTO PASSION & PLAY 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 1/2 the year? I have done all of this and much more, and I can help YOU realize these types of dreams too! It begins with a relaxed mind and a well oiled online business.

I will work closely with you to understand your exact needs, goals and ambitions.

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 business goals based on their desired lifestyle has become a passion. I have personally earned a lifestyle which has taken me around the world and have experienced things most will only see in a magazine or on 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 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.
