    Detailed Experience Summary:

    Owner at Celebrate Connections - A Send Out Cards Reseller
    April 2009 - Present

    I help individuals and people stay in touch with their families, friends, customers and prospects using the same simple tool that Joe Girard, the world's top salesman, uses everyday.
    Greeting cards!
    Using the power of personal greeting cards, I can help you stay in touch, stand out from your competition and use social marketing to develop a closer relationship with the people who matter most to you.
    The process is online, but a real card in a real envelope with a real stamp can be sent to anyone, anywhere in the world.
    Please ask me for a demo!

    I am actively pursuing the degree I never achieved for so many years due to illness. I intend to continue my education towards a Bachelor's in Small Business Management, estimated graduation date: 2011. After that, I hope to go on for a Masters degree in Disability Studies. My hope is to counsel and consult other small businesses, especially those run by disapreneurs or looking to hire the disable community.
