Value for Money

While working for representatives of various foreign companies in Poland, I learnt that the concept of VALUE FOR MONEY is the best "Mission Statement" for long-term results in business. Therefore, I focus on quality service for reasonable, realistic prices which are satisfactory both for the customer and for myself. I enjoy my work and I am happy to contribute to efficient operation of other companies or make life easier for individual persons.

Information flow

I always report on work progress and keep in touch if requested.

Personal service

The work I do for you I do myself. I do not sub-contract persons with limited experience to do "simple" texts. It is not effective.
