Our work is an investment. We are both investing our time. You are also have a financial investment and I have an additional investment of expertise and resources.
I do not do "quick" carbon copy resumes. I don't do cheap resumes. I won't undervalue you.
When we work together, I am personally vested. You work only with me. No ghostwriters, no subcontractors. The minimum amount of time I spend on a resume is 10 hours. Ten hours of research, writing, testing, fine tuning, agonizing over word choice, ruthlessly editing to make it clean and tight, an occasional outburst, perhaps a tear or two.... this is an investment.
I am also invested in your success. This is why I include a training session in my program to teach you how to use the tools I will provide - without knowledge of how to use them, they become useless. I want you to be able to maximize your investment by learning how to keep your resume alive for other opportunities as your career grows/changes.
I tell you what you need to hear, not what you want to hear. This is about you, your success.
I have a positive outlook on life, non-judgmental, respectful, direct, with a unique sense of humor.
If you don't need me, I 'll tell you. I offer a free initial call for us to make sure its a good fit.

My direct approach is a result of an amazing father, raising boys and Chief (he is my better half). You might hear pup in the background, he's the official office dog. I am a huge fan of nature, the Cubs, shoes, diners/dives, and inspirational quotes. In fact, if you connect with me on LinkedIn or follow me on Twitter, you will see a post from me every workday of a positive thought or inspirational quote.
I take all my health very seriously:
six days of working out for my physical health,
exploring nature for my mental health
a Christian who starts each day with the Word for my spiritual health.
contributing to organizations that support, encourage and empower
women, cancer survivors, military and business professionals for my emotional health.
