    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.

I previously worked as an Event, Travel and Training Coordinator, and have strong skills when it comes to detail and organization. After I moved to Italy, I discovered the world of freelancing. Best discovery yet! For the past three years, I have worked as a Virtual Administrative Assistant through oDesk, specializing in administration and marketing. I proudly have a long-standing relationship with the majority of my clients. Although there are others, my primary responsibilities as an assistant currently include: - travel and event planning - social media management - preparing and processing client invoices - email marketing and communications - maintaining company website - proofreading articles and video scripts - managing virtual assistant team - maintaining internal systems and databases I also love to travel and experience new places, and spend a great deal of time traveling around Europe.
