WHAT I DO | MY VALUE TO YOU

As chief career writer and partner (owner) with CareerTrend.net, I write:

☑ Resumes that influence;
☑ Compelling dossiers that are both content- and story-driven and elegantly designed;
☑ Energizing cover letters, poignant biographies, stand-out LinkedIn and other social media profiles and invigorating professional summaries.

If you are a professional or executive in career transition, or desire to ignite your existing career, hire me to personally shepherd you through your career branding process. As one of only 27 Master Resume Writers globally, with a BA in writing, certification as an Interview Coach and 14 years as a full-time career strategist, I will drive your career forward.

An intuitive researcher, I unearth clients’ compelling story details and apply an inventive approach to career positioning documents. As well, I develop blog posts for careerists desiring to boost their global visibility and value.

You may find me blogging at the CareerTrend, Glassdoor, US News | Careers, ResumeChicks or TalentCulture blogs, or sharing careers and other talent-promotion and leadership-related musings via Twitter at @ValueIntoWords.

As "The" Texas Executive Resume Writer, my client reach is global, and I welcome collaborations via Skype, telephone and email.

"Challenges become the greatest once you believe there is no solution." | via +Taffy Williams  
Keeping an open mind and learning to approach problems is a critical part of building a business. Most often, solutions to the numerous and varied problems are not found in books. Scientists and business people may allow their biases and gut reaction direct their solutions to problems. Many times gut reactions are not correct and they limit an individual’s ability to see alternatives or novel solutions. The challenges become the greatest once you...

Stop micromanaging; cease procrastinating and other energy recouping tips (with meaty explanations) from +Marianna Paulson : http://bit.ly/1EouVf6 | "Eight Ways to Have More Energy"
Energy. Got it? Want it? Need it? Like that last bit of the toothpaste in the tube, are you squeezing out what little energy you have left,  just to get through your week, your day, or the next hour? Does it feel as if a giant cosmic vacuum cleaner has sucked up all your energy? …

A business-lyrical resume is a metric and results-focused a cappella that breaks out into a chorus from time to time. It should sing with melodic stories that compel emotion and intellectual connection and forge a bond with your target reader.
So many resumes are flat – out of tune and uninspiring compositions. If you've read one "goal-oriented sales producer's" resume, you've read a million.Instead of dampening your writing muse with a plethora of requirements that dull, consider the value of a musically inclined communication.A business-lyrical resume is a metric and results-focused a cappella that breaks out into a chorus from time to time.

+Walter Akana hits the nail on the head with this article on how to 'differentiate' yourself by 'being you!' #CareerStories  
Have you ever thought about what makes you truly different? I have, and I’m betting you have too. Of course, the bigger question is the extent to which you can translate those insights into more success in your career and business life. One way, of course, is to develop your personal brand. Yet, in pursuing a recipe for branding yourself, you risk being just like everyone else. [Tweet This]So, what to do?I have some ideas. Before I get to them, h...
