Edwin's Profile

Experience Summary

With 7 years of experience in the field, 5 years of that full time, non-stop activations, I have been on 4 national tours to date and two regional tours. I have driven vehicles from 12 feet up to 2-ton duallys and 34 foot-long trailers towing close to 36,000 lbs. I have dealt with a variety of machinery and equipment, many different scenarios involving labor, truck driver, logistics and transportation, shipments, inventory, managing of staff of 1-20 or more, establishing client and vendor relationships, and much more. I have done tour work in the automotive, telecommunications, home improvement, electronics and technology, as well as commercial media industries. In that time, I have received recommendations from these companies and have over-delivered in multiple cases, saving companies money and time. All of these skills that I have acquired will be taught in this coaching program exclusively for those willing to invest in themselves. View my contact details, availability, and stats.
