- 🤖 Operations: Perengo was a boot-strapped business and we learned how to simplify, optimize, and automate workflows.
- 💜 Marketing: I consult startups and corporates on brand strategy and consistent marketing execution.
- ☺️ Mental Hygiene: Building a business is a 🎢. I'm happy to listen and provide an objective opinion.
