I'm Mercedes S. Jones, an MBA applicant looking to provide budding entrepreneurs with the skills needed to grow their businesses. I am a Jill of all trades. I have a background in government pricing, documentation management, project management, international education, and process improvement. I am currently teaching English as a Foreign Language in Mainland China, but I will be transitioning back to the United States in the Spring of 2023 to begin my MBA program. I plan to concentrate on Business Strategy/Business Development/Strategic Partnerships/Small Business Development.
How to work with me
What I can offer
I can offer intermediate Microsoft Excel skills, customized budget spreadsheets, presentation materials, large data set aggregation, and digital document management.
My expectations for a successful mentoring relationship
I expect mentees to understand that I am currently living in China, so there will be time zone differences (assuming they're in the West or non-Beijing time). I expect mentees to understand that I am primarily looking to also develop my own skills as a young professional and MBA applicant. I expect there to be a mutualistic relationship where both parties benefit from the exchange.
How entrepreneurs can prepare before we start
Mentees should have clear objectives and goals that align with my specific skill set. They should have specific projects/deliverables for me to assist them with.
