Business Development 

Using some of the funds from the sale of my sales consulting company I purchased a fleet of SUVS and Airstream Trailers to rent on peer to peer sites. After less then a year I have developed a network that flows well together in this community.

Using Uber to pick up clients from the airport and deliver them to their rental vehicle and task rabbit and other p2p resources to clean the cars upon return I now have an organized business that is expandable to other markets.

But more importantly even though I have worked with different customers personality types and situations I have been able to maintain an overall very satisfied base of customers even though people usually dislike the rental car experience I have made it fun and developed a recurring base of clients!

I would love to work with Amazon and use my business and logistics experience to help make Amazon be even more successful in my market! Please view my profile showing customer reviews of my service below:
