About Me: 

Hi. My name is Shirl Mendonca...welcome to my page. I am a retired single mother living in northern California. I just learned about World Pulse at a conference today and I am so excited to get to know all of you. I have spent years in marketing, management and financial planning and am happy to offer help in any of these areas. I am also a writer with a local newspaper. Since retiring 6 years ago, I have focused on becoming more self sustainable in terms of honoring the planet and living a much simpler life; I have learned so much in the areas of energy efficiency, organic gardening, food storage, indigenous agricultural methods that honor the earth and her resources, and herbal medicines. My current project is to put all of this information on a free website so others might benefit from what I have learned. Beyond that, I have time on my hands. I would love to listen, learn and share with each of you and maybe find a way that I can be of help. I have traveled extensively to less developed countries and have always wanted to stay longer and get involved with women on an international basis...sharing stories, sharing lives, sharing projects. Maybe I can help one of you and you can help me find a new passion.

My Passions: 
Self-sustainability, travel, writing, learning, being a mother
My Challenges: 
technology, staying in shape
My Vision for the Future: 
Work on meaningful projects where I lose track of time.
My Areas of Expertise: 
Marketing, Finance, Business, Writing
My Languages: 
English, Some French
