I am a unique man. I do not pretend to be someone that I am not. I am a leader and a coach yet I prefer to motivate by encouragement rather than by force. I am not afraid to take necessary measures in a variety of circumstances.. To my superior, I am a "right hand man" kind of guy. I protect the bottom line and try to make every effort to obtain a win-win for all parties. I am loyal, dependable, likable, resourceful and productive. I excel at projects and task that are put before. Hire me and you will see. Final word, in today's poor economy, you don't need to hire a 'wanna be". You need a proven professional that delivers proven results. Hire me and see what I can do for you, even in a bad economy. When the economy turns around for you and other business owners, I can only imagine the increased market share, higher net and gross profits. I am a tiger! Let's do it!
Thank you for your consideration.
