Presco is a Tagalog word for fresh. It’s time for a fresh look at the way we work and live. I’m an entrepreneur/ executive coach/ executive recruiter/ writer/ speaker/ media expert/ indie film producer/ stand-up comic/ wife/ mom/ investor.
I always wanted my life to focus on four pillars: career, finance/ investing, family and the arts. I didn’t know what that would look like when I started but I’ve been able to incorporate all of these things into my life in a big way.
My career work is about other people’s careers! I coach people on extreme career change — a manager who wants to jump to executive ranks; an experienced professional in a particular field who wants to do something radically different; an executive who really wants to be an entrepreneur. I also am a partner at a retained search boutique so I have my finger on the pulse of the employer side of things. Career pillar, check!
I am a business news junkie and real estate investor — finance pillar, check! I’m happily married (to my high school sweetheart) and mother to a teen and a tween — family pillar, check! I’m an independent film producer and stand-up comic — arts pillar, check!
You don’t have to choose between work or family, creative or business, money or joy. This doesn’t mean you do everything halfway either. My work has been cited in leading media, including TV appearances on CBS, CNN and Fox, quotes in BusinessWeek, Fortune, Money, Newsweek, NPR, Real Simple, and Success Magazine, and a regular column for Money.com and Time.com. In 2010, I won a grant from the Jones New York Empowerment Fund for my coaching business. I teach at Columbia University. I am the co-author of two books.
