An avid public speaker on the development and effective management of Home-Based business, Ms. Liatsos established her consulting firm in 1987 and grew it into a national on-line Business Management Company that today provides Business Services and offers Adult Learning Classes on starting and successfully managing Home-Based enterprises at three Los Angeles area colleges.

In 1997, Ms. Liatsos globalized her markets by the addition of an Internet Course on Successful Home-Based Business Management tailored for English speaking entrepreneurs outside of the USA. She is the author of numerous informative articles on Home-Based commerce and has also been the subject of journalistic pieces complementing her expertise in this field.

Los Angeles SBA District Director Alberto G. Alvarado praised Helene Liatsos with the following words, “Ms. Liatsos ia a perfect example of the Home-Based Entrepreneur. Her creativity, initiative, and small business acumen, not only served her well in achieving her dream, but also enabled hosts of small enterprises to receive valuable “bootstrap” technical assistance. My entire office is extremely proud of her accomplishments in championing the cause of Home-Based Business.”
