Nefateria Fonda is Certified Business and Sales Coach and PRESIDENT of Go Get It, Inc. She’s also an Author and Speaker specializing in helping new parallel-preneurs. Parallel-preneurs are professionals who are building a service-based business while they are working. Nef helps them get clear on who they serve and how they serve them.
