THE GOOD OLD BIO
Have you ever heard of the saying “The whole is greater than the sum of the parts?” When that truism is applied to cooking, for example, it refers to how the different ingredients have melded and accentuated each other to create a dish that transcends name or recipe. In the case of Helena Alkhas, it has a similar meaning. While it might be easy to apply the label of “professional organizer”, “virtual assistant” or “social media expert” based on her varied experiences, the manner in which she uniquely combines these practical skills with a heart for helping her clients achieve professional success and personal balance creates quantifiable results.
As a result of her upbringing and advanced education in Law and Business Management in Brazil, Helena is able to work “outside the box” when necessary. She learned a lot about what was in the ‘box” while experiencing professional marketing management success with a diverse assortment of international Fortune 500 companies such as IBM, BASF Pharma, L’Oreal and AGA Linde Healthcare. This immersion into international cultures and languages have enabled Helena to not only become fluent in English, Spanish and Portuguese, but develop the talent of adapting to, and understanding, multicultural standards, as well as subtleties.
Helena established a successful Professional Organizing business in San Diego, California (A Personal Organizer – Create A Life You Love: www.apersonalorganizer.com). She relied on her entrepreneurial spirit, desire to help her clients free themselves from personal, professional and emotional clutter, and marketing expertise, particularly in the social media and online marketing disciplines. She continued to grow her business as a result of her organized, creative approach to marketing processes. Helena began to realize that while she was having success in growing her business, she really loved (and was really good at) the growing need for interactive, effective social media marketing. Peers and associates began to recognize her prowess in this area, and sought her expertise in helping them replicate her successful approach to online marketing for their own businesses. That’s when she realized the “sum of the parts” was now going to eclipse “the whole”, and decided to share her talents and skills to help a larger number of businesses, both domestic and international, thrive and grow.
Helena now offers her online marketing project management services, with a focus on blogging and social media execution, and management. Thanks to technology and ability to “run” with a project, Helena can become an integral component of your company’s success by utilizing her as your Online Marketing Project Manager.
Helena is a heart-centered entrepreneur, believes in work-life balance and she enjoys working with people from all walks of life. She lives in San Diego, CA with her husband and their three young boys.
