Meet your business partner, Sharon Salmon

 
 
How It Began    Sharon as a little one:  I wanted to rent a limo for my 12th birthday. My mom said, “you earn the $150, and I'll rent the limo.” I grabbed a mason jar, and duct taped it shut, cut a hole in the lid. Off I went babysitting, selling homemade stickers and cleaning neighbors kitchens. Let’s just say I got that limo. I was bit by the business bug!   Sharon today:  Working at a large firm, that catered to other large firms, I received requests from many small to medium businesses looking for similar support. Unfortunately firms are not known to reduce their billable rates. Large enterprises can easily afford $200 - 400 an hour for consulting projects, but many growing businesses cannot.  I watched “big” brands grow bigger, while smaller businesses struggled to get the expert support they deserved. That’s when I decided to work direct with businesses offering much needed Business Operational + HR support.  My rates are low, but my rates do not discredit my experience. They just confirm the passion I have for the world of business and those who take the risk to create.

How It Began

I wanted to rent a limo for my 12th birthday. My mom said, “you earn the $150, and I'll rent the limo.” I grabbed a mason jar, and duct taped it shut, cut a hole in the lid.

Why I do what I do

Working at a large firm, that catered to other large firms, I received requests from many small to medium businesses looking for similar support. Unfortunately firms are not known to reduce their billable rates. Large enterprises can easily afford $200 - 400 an hour for consulting projects, but many growing businesses cannot.

I watched “big” brands grow bigger, while smaller businesses struggled to get the expert support they deserved. That’s when I decided to work direct with businesses offering much needed Business Operational  + HR support.

My rates are low, but my rates do not discredit my experience. They just confirm the passion I have for the world of business and those who take the risk to create.
