AnnaLaGrassa 

Hi there! My name is Anna and I live in Sydney, Australia. I'm a motivated and professional 30-something who believes in three things: honesty and integrity in all that I do, working hard to achieve my goals (and yours!), and my key ingredient - my work must be my passion. Some of my clients have recently shared stories with me about the problems they had working with freelancers, and as a manager I've had negative experiences when outsourcing myself - Projects running over time; difficulties establishing effective communication; experiencing the effects of poor work ethics; and the occasional freelancer going M.I.A mid-project, leaving you to find alternate solutions at the last minute. Sound familiar? Imagine working with someone who genuinely cares about your business and your projects. A person who is trustworthy, articulate, honest, and talented. Someone who is grateful for every opportunity that is thrown their way. A person who never abandons ship, who will be with you beginning to end. And someone who you will actually enjoy working with. Sound good? Well then, I'm your girl! I know I'm not the only freelancer out there who can meet your needs - but I also know that clients who work with me experience more than just a set of versatile skills. They enjoy my positive can-do and enterprising attitude, and our pleasant interactions. I've been a manager, a leader, a facilitator, a role model, and a team member - so I understand and respect your position as a leader and manager, and I'm here to make your job easier. Why you will love working with me: - I have a very professional work ethic - I am efficient, honest, and love to work both as part of a team and individually. - I have an enterprising can-do attitude. - I have excellent communication skills, including English speaking, reading and writing skills. - I also speak, read and write basic Italian as a second language, and have been working with people from different cultural backgrounds in different capacities for many years. - I have great leadership skills, so whether motivating myself or others to get a job done, I am always up for the challenge! - I am very organised - helping me to get tasks done well and on time. - I know my limitations, and I'll always be upfront with you about them. I look forward to working with you!
