I am Ellen Kaplan, the founder and president of Possibilities@Work. As a seasoned professional, I have contributed to the growth of both individuals and organizations throughout my working career. My career spans over 25 years in both education administration and business.
My background involves sales, marketing and consulting with CEOs and executive managers in various industries. Helping to clarify strategies and developing laser-sharp marketing and sales initiatives have helped businesses reach the next level. My current focus is working with entrepreneurs of small and mid-sized companies and their management teams.
My initial work in the field of education and special education developed my patience, empathetic nature, and creativity. The ability to break down issues to discover the root of problems or dysfunction comes from working with special needs children. Later as an administrator, I honed in on my supervisory, management, training, and mentoring skills.
I transferred my communication, problem-solving abilities and management experience to the business world almost 20 years ago. I started out in sales for a shipping hardware and software company. I received regular recognition as "Sales Executive of the Month". Also, winning national sales performance awards for generating revenue at the top five percent of the company resulted in promotions to sales manager and product manager within a few years.
My entrepreneurial spirit was apparent to me as I as I was drawn to start my own sales and marketing consulting business. Being the daughter of a business owner suggests that it was part of my DNA. It goes back even further to my grandfather who had a grocery and meat market and insisted he had an M.D. degree (meat dealer). Always taking a leadership role as a child, adults recognized my organizational and management skills early on, although my younger brother considered it just bossiness.
Now that I've almost grown up, I appreciate how my experience and skills have contributed to my ability to understand and help clients be successful. My trademarks are my sense of humor, relationship skills and special ability to collect resources and connect business people to one another.
As a small business consultant, I've solved sales and marketing issues with many companies, including the ones listed below. My work with clients has resulted in:
Clients past and present include AutoEndeavor, BrandDeamon, Digital Equipment Corp, E-Dialog, Ikier Wellness Center, Integrity Marketing, Lotus Development Corporation, Laser Motif, Mei Technology, R&L Associates, ZipLink.
Let's have a conversation and see if we would work well together. Then let's focus on how we can grow your company and you. There is no risk, just make a call or send an e-mail for small business help.
