The Office Nerd

If you’re a small business owner, you’re likely burning the candle at both ends, and sometimes in the middle too.  Am I right? I’ve heard it again and again – small business owners start with a vision, but find themselves bogged down by the challenges of running the day-to-day.  They are distracted by what they want to do in order to deal with what they have to do. Sound familiar? You don’t have the time to do it all, but you aren’t ready to hire a full-time assistant. That’s where I come in. I’m Denise, and I’m a nerd.  Spreadsheets and essays make me happy. I’m weird like that. For over 25 years, I’ve excelled (pun intended) at project management, writing, and organization.  I thrive on helping small businesses and love the variety of different projects. Get to know more about me by clicking here.  I look forward to hearing from you and learning how we may be a good fit to work together.
