ABOUT MR. O
While I really enjoyed being a "Hunter" of new business
(and was very successful at it), my true passion is helping others
find a CAREER they love.
My job is NOT my life.
I am not what’s on my business card.
I am the sum of multiple passions, interests and talents.
I wanted the creative flexibility to express and explore the world – to come up with creative solutions to help others with their career search, and get paid for my natural talents.
