What I Do
Planning

 Failing to plan is planning to fail, hence a thoughtful and methodical approach with all the data used to achieve the given task or project.

Marketing

Making the product and concept known in the most unique and productive ways.

Sales Strategies – Product and Concept.

My mantra: Sales Brings money so focus on how to bring in volumes for sales to get more money in the system.

Ideating

Fresh ideas keep the business exciting and accelerating. A simple yet effective way of working. I believe AI will never ever be able to outsmart common sense
