I’m Seattle area Realtor, writer and blogger Carl Setzer. My writing covers many topics, but a key theme: living life with a long-term vision. Always seeking continuous growth, ensuring each day enriches my mind, body and soul. And positively impacting my family, friends and community.
My career covers several key Seattle area institutions, including Starbucks, Microsoft and a project or two at Amazon. At Starbucks my work encompassed project and team coordination within Corporate Social Responsibility and Public Affairs/Global Communications. Additional work in Public Affairs and Advocacy with AARP, and initiatives with global trade and world wide finance at Microsoft round out a deep understanding of today’s business climate. Additionally, I’ve managed operations for businesses and nonprofits at many different scales.
I understand general business principles, technological solutions, internet and social media marketing. Building websites (with a particular love for WordPress), myriad PowerPoints, intricate Excel spreadsheets, tracking million dollar + budgets, deploying technological solutions such as Google Apps and Microsoft Office Web Apps solutions (Office 365’s predecessor) , written press releases, edited and managed newsletters; have crafted the deepest understanding of elements for developing long-term, sustainable strategies.
Focusing on “getting things done”, while keeping an eye on the future, I seek solutions that make positive change, that grow and develop with a focus, direction and vision.
