I'm a Salvadorian-American. I've lived in the USA most of my life. My wife and I live in Sacramento, CA and in Cajica, Colombia, South America. I'm a musician and devoted student of the psychology of success. My wife is a bilingual Montessori Teacher.
All I ever wanted to do was to work for the telephone company in El Salvador (ANTEL), to be able to play the guitar like Carlos Santana, Jimmy Page, and Jeff Beck, and to live in Brazil.
I'm not as talented as my idols, but I have just as much fun playing their tunes. I've have not been to Brazil yet, but I live in Colombia, which is next to it. I never worked at ANTEL, but got to work for AT&T.
AT&T loved me and I loved AT&T! I received many sales awards, and Circle of Excellence recognitions. However, something was missing. My Colombian wife and I were too far away from our families in Minnesota, Colombia, and El Salvador. So in 2005, I envisioned a future where we could be, work, and play with our families. This meant taking advantage of the telecom technologies invented by AT&T and others.
Working virtually is not a big deal - I had been doing that successfully since 1994. However, many managers don't like it. In 2006 AT&T decided to eliminate my virtual assignment in Sacramento.
I viewed my departure as an opportunity to test my commitment, resourcefulness and faith. And most of all, as a privilege to take care of our aging and ill parents.

I endorsed Eduardo for the assignment in Colombia and he did an excellent job for the company during his assignment. I first met him when he was a sales consultant and later learn of his extensive business operations and collections experience.
He helped train and then manage the local team in Bogota and also worked to help bridge the cultural gap between our numerous ex-patriot employees and the local Colombian team.
I highly endorse Eduardo's efforts and would and did hire him again.
