Sheila Greenspan has had a diversified and interesting life so far. Within months after graduating from TJHS, she married her childhood sweetheart. During the first 14 years of marriage, Sheila was a full-time mother of three and homemaker and participated in several charity organizations including ORT (Organization for Rehabilitation through Training) and Cancer Care.
In 1972, Sheila returned to school at the American Business Academy and in 1975 graduated, tested and received State Certification, National Registration and a Certificate of Proficiency in court reporting. In 1976, she established her first educational facility, in New Jersey, teaching court reporting. In the short while she owned the school, its record of achievement became legendary in the state of New Jersey.
In 1978, Sheila and her family moved to Albuquerque, New Mexico. There, she opened another school for court reporting and secretarial skills. She obtained a contract with the Navajo Nation and provided education for young Navaho adults, most of whom had never before left the reservation. Sheila took the school through accreditation and then opened another court reporting school in Tucson, Arizona. While in Albuquerque, Sheila was a member of the Advisory Board to the State Department on Higher Education, an active member of the New Mexico Commission on the Status of Women, and president of the New Mexico Private School Association for 3 years. She authored a 2600+ clock-hour court reporting curriculum as well as a textbook on the court reporting language for Sandia College (NM). She also obtained a contract with the US Air Force Base at Kirtland Air Force to increase the basic reading and math levels of Airmen. The contract was renewed and lasted three years.
In 1985, she sold the schools and took another direction in her life which included and currently remains a passion for the world of business, in the forms of consulting and loan facilitating. She focused her attention on the formulation of a unique, solid financial paradigm to provide solutions to complex business needs through reposturing of cash flow, creative use of bank and other asset-based instruments and negotiating advantageous arrangements to accomplish funding and profit mechanisms to yield a win-win situation. Her interest and expertise in humanitarian projects are intrinsic to Ms. Greenspan’s endeavors. Sheila’s consulting and loan facilitating business became an international practice for several years.
In late 2005, Ms. Greenspan scaled down her business and established Privileged Business Consulting, LLC and continues to prove her proficiency in the business environment in the representation of a select clientele of small and start-up businesses, with unique attention to business structure, business development and financing.
In early 2006, Sheila established The Privileged Business Ambassador, a unique public relations/business proxy firm for a choice clientele with established businesses both in the United States and Abroad desiring the services of a professional liaison/spokesperson. Her first position was as Goodwill Ambassador for SCORE (America’s Counselors to Small Business—formally Service Corps of Retired Executives)—the first and only Goodwill Ambassador SCORE has had in its almost 400 nationwide chapters and 10,500 participating counselors.
In 2007, Sheila developed another profile, a special program for Foreign Nationals setting up business in Florida and/or assimilating into Naples’ lifestyle. Most of her clientele are by way of recommendations from attorneys and banks.
Sheila has been named in the following publications:
2000 Notable Women in the United States
Biographical Society of Professional Women, Worldwide
Who’s Who in Professional Women
National Association of Professional Women
Today, Sheila lives in Naples, Florida, which she calls “Paradise.” She travels to spend time with her three wonderful granddaughters. She is involved in organization and civic endeavors through Naples Council on World Affairs and continues her business consulting/loan facilitating business: http://www.Privileged Business Consulting.com She has started playing tennis and captains a team.
