How I like to work with people
As an Advisor

As an advisor and entrepreneurial business strategist, my goal is to align the profitability and creative genius of businesses & entrepreneurs, and to organize ideas, improve workflows & increase productivity.

I am a big picture person who loves details, so as an advisor, I tend toward a more hands-on approach. By understanding the product or service, the market, the guiding vision(s), and the corporate processes, I am best able to advise my clients. My goal is to not only bring clarity to the company strategy, but also to identify the best tactics to implement that strategy and how to do it. Finally, I believe in working with people where they need to be met, and that means starting with as few assumptions as possible.

I am effective because I take a panoptic approach to problem solving. My strong leadership skills and ability to work with diverse personalities to accomplish goals helps me be an effective change agent. I am results-oriented and take great satisfaction in getting things done.

Natalie IS a great entrepreneur. She has been doing so for many years. As we entrepreneurs know, we cannot do it all. She has can fill the v ... oid wherever it is needed, accounting, editing, marketing, operations, reviewing license agreements and agreements in general. She has a talent to analyze business problems, develop a sense of what needs to be done to rectify the problems quickly and efficiently. Her organizational skills are second nature to her and she imparts the solution clearly and succinctly. Her writing skills are organized, state issues that need to be stated and writes in a "story" format to help define all of the issues. I have used her on many occasion over the past 10 years to edit my marketing, business plans and proposal information. She gets the project done. She can oversee projects as needed or works on short term issues based on what the client needs. Her communication skills with clients is stellar. I highly recommend her for any project of any type. Anyone who hires her will not be disappointed. She has a wealth of information and personal experience. I will be open to talk to anyone.

She has a way ... of weeding through the idiosyncrasies of starting and running a company and is able to help others do the same. Her mindset is true to the core values of systematizing and structuring a business around the needs of the organization, their customers and the employees that must implement the strategies on a daily basis.

Jindra Cekan, PhD
They're my friends  •  President/ Catalyst, Valuing Voices, Consultant- International development, Fletcher School of Law & Diplomacy, Univ Cambridge, Harvard grad
The first time I met Jindra at a school-sponsored event for our kids' school, I was immediately drawn to her and just sat and listened to he ... r talk to other parents. She was smart, kind, had great ideas and had incredible experiences. As I've gotten to know her better on a personal level over these last four years, this first impression has proven to be extremely accurate. However, I would add that she has been also resourceful and so helpful to me as a consultant and entrepreneur, as well as inspirational. She is a connector and able to relate to different situations. I am lucky to know Jindra personally.

Steve Thompson
We worked together  •  At Guruu International, I work with Entrepreneurs and Business Executives that want to make an effort to Change the World, on a daily basis.
I've been working closely with Steve for this past year, and he's been an excellent sounding board for so many issues. He provides perspecti ... ve, support and training that is on-target and timely. More importantly, when we're "stuck" on a problem or issue, he offers insight and solutions that help us easily get past that obstacle. He truly understands the mindset of the entrepreneur and the issues that start-ups face.

Lisa Cutler
They're my friends  •  Director of Communications and Digital Strategy, Alliance for Retired Americans.
Lisa is my go-to person for a number of different things. I value her opinion immensely, and when I seek an honest assessment of an issue, s ... he's the person to whom I reach out. She's smart, analytical and gets things done. She's also a big picture person, which makes her judgment that much more valuable. Also, because she's a quick study, I know that I'm not going to have to muddle through details for her to understand an issue. She brings all of this to the table, and more, with every task she takes on.

Charmaine Brandon
They're my friends  •  Project Manager, Civil Remedy and Benefits. Previously Project Manager, Fannie Mae via Technisource.
Charmaine brings an infectious passion to things in which she is interested. She's really smart, has great ideas, and it's fun to collaborat ... e with her. I've also had a chance to work with her in an entrepreneurial capacity, and I would embrace the opportunity to do so again.

Mathieu Gagne
They're my friends  •  CFO EBI Consulting
He's really smart and gets along with everyone. He also knows a lot about growing businesses, and I use him as a resource myself. I highly r ... ecommend him.
