ABOUT WOLFGANG…

In the last 14 years, I set up 3 successful companies in tourism in the Philippines,
but all 3 companies are in hibernation till 2021 or 2022 due to COVID 19.
For that reason, I focus now full-time on web and software development for other companies.

WHY HIRE ME?

Seeing the bigger picture as an entrepreneur helps me to be time-efficient, more than just delivering what is asked and I can add value. I love reflecting, rethinking, streamlining, optimizing to increase profits. At the same time, I know how to deliver results without much supervision. I use mostly google docs to deliver clear work documentation and communication with my clients.
I know how to agree to disagree and at the same time fully support the other’s decision! Even when I think the other one is wrong.
Even when international tourism and my companies resume I will spend around 30 hours a week for work in IT with the goal to transition from being an IT freelancer to also establish my own IT company with my own IT staff in the BPO field in a year or two.
