We asked Pablo a few questions about his background and experience.
What is your area of expertise?
I was graduated as an accountant, so working with figures was always a useful tool in my life. After some years working, I got a Master in Business policy. Having the Master, broaden my skills and it was an incredible help to start managing and dealing with all kinds of people in a better way, as they are the most important factor in any organization type.
How did you become a freelancer?
I become a freelance accountant by providing some personal financial advice to my friends. It was a help for them to know the basics and handle their own money. Obviously, I was recommended to others outside my circle and then I was able to have new customers soon.
What do you enjoy the most about being a freelance accountant?
It has great advantages and flexibility to work on different projects as a freelancer and to make the most of them. I believe this is personal philosophy to select plans without restrictions about jobs and projects, that I like more. Projects can be challenging but with good planning, we can reach our goals and meet expectations.
If you would not be freelancing, what would you be doing?
If I were not freelance, I would be trying to change corporate processes, through my personal contribution and professional expertise. Moreover, I want to provide the best ideas I can suggest in a business company environment.
What are your goals? (Also not professionally speaking)
My professional goals are related to the improvement and contribution I can do to my workplace.
I discovered the powerful tool to teach finance to individuals so they can open their minds and discover better living conditions with the limitation of money.
In my ordinary life, I would say that life is too short in the sense of not having generally enough time for covering all of our goals in our lifetime but we should greatly value what we can get.
Personally, I love simple things such as sharing valuable time with family and friends, traveling as much as possible, and helping others especially the ones who are in need.
What makes you feel you’re contributing to a better world?
I feel that every single action is implied good consequences that multiplies and it is a matter of pure positive energy. So I bet that taking care of the environment, helping every human in any action can be the best possible contribution.
Favourite organization, and why?
My heart is with UNICEF as it helps worldwide children and teenagers to access health, education and get more protection. When protecting children, we are more willing to see in them a promising future, and overall they will be adults that can really make the difference in subjects such as environment, justice, peace, and of course, good global citizens.
