Man often becomes what he believes himself to be. If I keep on saying to myself that I cannot do a certain thing, it is possible that I may end by really becoming incapable of doing it. On the contrary, if I have the belief that I can do it, I shall surely acquire the capacity to do it even if I may not have it at the beginning. – Mahatma Gandhi

Let's say a student is on Level N in fluency. I would copy all the passages for Level N, O, P, Q and R and put them in the student's binder in the Fluency section. That way, each week it is so easy to go on to the next one because it is right there.

I watched a movie about Steve Jobs last night. He was such an extraordinarily brilliant and pioneering man.

Story
Introduction
As a professional executive resume writer, if there is one thing I have learned, it is that nobody sets out to be average. In fact, what people truly want is to be extraordinary...to live a life that matters...to do work that has meaning.

I believe in the potential of my clients to achieve this...to live an extraordinary life and to find work that energizes, excites, and challenges them. Work that they are fulfilled and rewarded by personally, professionally, and financially.

My passion is helping my clients move forward confidently in their job searches. I create powerful, engaging, branded...

❖ resumes,
❖ LinkedIn profiles,
❖ executive biographies,
❖ job search letters,
❖ and other personal marketing tools

...that propel careers forward, empowering clients to land the jobs they want, and reach their highest potential and goals.

Who am I? I am an award-winning professional resume writer, widely recognized as a foremost expert nationwide. Founded in 1996, my firm is one of the longest-standing leaders in the industry, an internet pioneer respected for our unmatched expertise, quality, and commitment to our clients.

What can you expect from me?

▶▶ PERSONALIZED SERVICE! I care about my clients and want to get to know you personally, to meet your needs and exceed your expectations. My goal is to make you a "raving fan" and client for life--working with you at each career step.

▶▶ INTENSIVE EXPLORATION! I listen deeply, ask thoughtful questions, and have a natural intuitive gift and a talent for powerful writing that I will put to work in identifying and articulating your personal brand and career story in an engaging, results-generating way.

▶▶ CUTTING-EDGE STRATEGY & QUALITY! Differentiating me in an industry that often produces mediocre, cookie-cutter resumes that do job seekers more harm than good, I uphold the highest standards of excellence in every aspect of my work. I am obsessive about quality and about producing results for my clients.
