You can be a good person without shoving your goals into the backseat just to pick up a negative hitchhiker to be their life-driver and accompany them anywhere

Income Reality for Freelancers
Even if you have been freelancing for years, you will have those moments when the leads stop or the phone stops ringing. Perhaps you will feel a little crazy as you start to doubt if you are cut out for contract work.
When you freelance, you are a business which means learning a new way to manage your finances.

Career management requires constant monitoring, especially during a job search. Most job seekers must consider the time that it takes to be successful without burning out.

LinkedIn informed me that one of my local (Wausau, Wisconsin) resume clients (we'll call him Carl) landed his new role as an Estimator and Design Engineer. Carl had recently been laid off from the Project Manager job he held for the past 6 years. There was a chance the company would call him back, but…

Beautiful!
 
STRIKING COLOURS AND PATTERNS
Wasp Head Beach, New South Wales, Australia

This is another idyllic beach from New South Wales' south coast.  The water is an amazing green colour and the sand lovely and clean.  The rocks in this part of the country are wonderful and have striking colours and patterns and almost look artificial.    (1318)

12 Fields Typically Employing Contract Workers
Many different industries and fields have capitalized on the benefits of having contract workers, particularly as this economy recovers slowly. Some employers depend on staffing agencies to fill their short-term jobs, particularly when demand is high. Other employers prefer to contract directly.

What is a resume story? As a professional resume writer, I ask my clients to think hard about the stories they can tell that prove their value to the hiring manager. Anyone can play back a job description, but the art of a writing a resume with a creative flair is to capture that moment when you went beyond the job description and contributed to the companies success.
You want to be creative when writing a resume but you are clueless as to how to improve your resume. When writing a resume, you don't want to be boring.

Ever have someone in your life who has a toxic personality? Toxic people can be found at work, at home, in non-profits, and even in churches.What Is A Toxic Personality? Some of toxic personalities are people on a power trip and anyone who gets in their way will be axed, incapacitated, publicly rebuked, or otherwise pushed out of their way. Other people only become toxic if someone questions their authority or tries to offer a different solution ...

Story

Creating successful career marketing strategies just for you!
Introduction
Writer first, resume writer second, I honed my skills in writing through building a business in resume writing (Designresumes.com) which opened the door to new opportunities.

I deliver very personal, collaborative career marketing services. My clients work directly with me and I break the rules and write while the client interacts and provides input. 

The magic of Skype and technology allows me to, share my screen with clients halfway around the globe and create that same feeling of being part of the process! The Select your resume package is designed to clearly show you the choice in services.

The intuitive way I collaborate with my clients helps resolve issues and find ways to reach both career management goals and personal life goals. My clients feel safe while also I challenge them to share both their wins and their losses in life.

My personal passions are many. As a Christian with a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, you will also see me post information related to my faith.

As you can tell from the photos on my profile, I love German Shepherds. Buddy is our second German Shepherd and he is the office companion. His assignments for the local clients is to "watch for the client and let me know when they have arrived." He does it well.

Technology and I have always been good friends and so both my business and personal fun is found through using technology.

I love to garden and we have both a large vegetable garden in the background and a large rock bed that cascades down our front lawn. My husband and I have been gardening ever since we were married 32+ years ago.

I'm looking forward to getting to know you. If you have questions about career services or just want to chat, feel free!

We have had our fence for more than a year now. Buddy is our second German Shepherd and we didn't have one with Teddy. Buddy broke a tie-out run within two weeks after we got him and we knew we needed a fence. A physical fence wouldn't work well in our yard and so we invested in a Pet Stop Fence. Brad was so good with Buddy in the training phase and has not run through the back yard fence since November 2012 when it was first installed and we were setting the right level. He loves the freedom in the yard and I love the confidence that I have knowing that my dog is safe. Teddy ran away multiple times when he was between 1 and 3 years of age. Buddy has never run away and the fence is the reason. I would recommend Pet Stop by Pro Hidden Fence to all dog owners. If it works with a German Shepherd, it will work with your dog.

I've been a member of Wesley UMC for about 17 years. When I first joined, I had been a Lutheran for 40 years so it was a huge transition. I have always been happy at Wesley but since Pastor Tim came, I have been happier. His preaching style and delivery are excellent and I go away with a message for the week. The pastor is an important person in the church but Wesley is made up with a congregation of Christ-filled and talented people. From music to acting, Bible teaching to youth leading, community focus to mission focus, Wesley truly feels like my church home and church family.

The Helke Funeral Home has been the choice of funeral homes for my family as long as I can remember. My husband's family also has made this the funeral home of choice. I have always been pleased with the comfort and concern by all of the staff members. While the death of a loved one is never easy, having people who you trust in charge of your arrangements is very comforting.

I've eaten many meals at Red Eye Brewing Co. and all of them have been excellent. Today was a stop for lunch with a young neighbor and I had the soup special which was Chicken Dumpling. The dumplings were obviously homemade (and Tasty) but I especially liked the fact that our server informed us that the chicken was local. My entree was the Bada Bing Wrap which I have always wanted to try but usually gravitate to something else. It was very tasty with just enough kick. Red Eye is always fun and when I choose to sample their beers, they always are a treat!
