My name is Noah Cebuliak.
I am a multi-talented, organized, super-effective and creative dynamo.
I'd like to show what I can offer you and your business.
An Overview Of My Strengths
From years of working with people, I believe I have found the holy grail: the unmatched joy received from truly helping others. One might call this empathy, but to me it's just natural. I love people. I love to be of service, and to assist in the realization of long-held dreams, projects and goals.
Besides my native English, my university degree is in the Spanish language. Having travelled to Spain and learned from the ground up, I know what it's like to put myself in the shoes of a local and to think in an entirely different way. While Spanish may be an accessory in our work together, my expanded worldview would prove critical to finding practical, yet creative solutions for your business.
Yeah, everyone says that. I actually do. My family has immigrant roots; that means solid, focused work ethic. I never phone it in for something I believe in. And if we're going to work together, you better believe I believe in you and your business. So let's roll up the sleeves and get going.
I'm familiar with a variety of online tools: Asana, G Suite, Wordpress, Evernote, Leadpages. And anything I don't know, I learn fast. I consider knowledge gaps a liability and I take them very seriously. If there's a tool your business uses with which I'm not familiar, I will master it during training.
Life is crazy. Managing hundreds of details, desires and goals must be supported with a go-to practice of stillness. I also do yoga, lift, and explore the wilderness with my partner. I value balance and spiritual integration in my personal life very highly, and I believe this to be one of my strongest assets to your business. I'm qualified, and I'm eager, but I'm also consistently joyous and grateful in my own life.
Working on the intricacies of a project is where I thrive. I love the deep focus and effort that is required to parse out the finely tuned details, because it gets me "in the zone." I live for that flow state.
In 2013, I booked a 30-date solo tour across Western Canada for my first album. Unlike most tours of independent musicians, I came out in the black. This wasn't because I got lucky. On the contrary, it was because I had correctly researched and anticipated where my tour was vulnerable - to disruptions, weather, poor attendance, etc - and planned accordingly. I knew exactly where I was going, when, and how much it would cost. My tour went off without a hitch.
I've done some difficult things in my life - most recently, building a house. It wasn't easy at all, and I wanted to quit, but I didn't. And that's a central part of me: perseverance. When the going gets tough, I keep going. I've always been that way.
A passionate adventurer at heart, I've been to some wild places and back. From some of the world's most dangerous zones (think North-eastern Lebanon, or no-go corners of Istanbul) to remote Pacific Islands, to the frigid, wild north of my native Canada, I know what it's like to set foot on foreign and exotic trails. Better yet, I understand how to bring back that hero's journey back to earth, and apply the wisdom in my work and personal life.
Once, when lost on a mountain in Northern England, I came to a fork in the path. Dusk was falling, and heavy snow as well. I had to quickly choose between left and right as I attempted to descend from the peak to safety. I listened to my gut and went left. I descended for a few more minutes and then looked back up at the mountain where I had been just before. If I had gone right, I would have gone over a cliff. From that experience I learned how to listen to that still small voice rather than panic when the stakes get high.
In my view, communication is 90% listening. My natural ability to listen, and then rephrase a client's desires and challenges is well-trained from my work with people. Being a musician doesn't hurt either. When it comes to making people feel special, heard and understood, I know to listen first before anything else.

Cool Stuff I've Done (And Still Do)
I'd like to say a big "thank you" for reading this far. I'm truly eager to put my skills and experience to use for a project or company whose values align with mine. I would love the chance to speak in person at your convenience.
