Business Startup & Marketing Consultant

Starting and maintaining a successful business is a lot of work especially in another country, even more so if you don’t speak the language very well. With over a decade of experience with failed businesses (some successful) it’s easy for me to say I’ve found what works and what doesn’t. Living locally in this area for over 6 years I’ve made connections and learned how business flows from the ground level up. This area is quite unique in the fact that there is tons of opportunity for starting a business doing something you love. From ranching, fish farms, solar panel setups, natural building, to designing / moving products in the street or even technical aspects like SEO; whether you want some help setting up a website, marketing your business locally, or a plan to build your business here I’d love to help you make your dreams come true.
