Is consulting for you?
About Dan Grijzenhout: For close to thirty years, I've been a professional business and information systems consulting professional working to executive levels for both private and public sector organizations globally, a number of which were "Fortune" level enterprises. I've built from scratch, operated and sold an online global payment services company that moves millions of dollars on behalf of its 100,000 plus account holders annually; I've been interviewed on the show "World Business Review" by former head of NATO and Secretary of State, General Alexander Haig, for my work in advanced digital and online telecommunications services and nation-wide online and card based "Loyalty" programs; and I now work at writing books and building training programs to share my years of experience with others interested in online entrepreneurship.
Social Media Marketing, Content Creation and Authorship: During the past few years, I have focused nearly all my time and energy on designing and building online marketing systems and social media marketing platforms. In fact, I recently completed a two year project as the project manager and chief architect to build a marketing system used by several major airlines, travel agencies and Fortune Level manufacturing corporations. I've now written, self-published and self-marketed five books being sold through Amazon-Kindle Create Space, and Ingram Spark. I've written and published over 40 social media related training/learning articles, videos and knowledge enhancing video podcasts available on my website, iTunes and YouTube.
