(Pssh…It’s a no brainer)

Let me tell you a little story about my own journey to the Big Bo$$ Lady Table!

I’ve been a certified résumé expert and career professional for more than 6 years and I absolutely love helping talented professionistas travel their respective career paths to achieve fulfillment.

I clearly remember the first time I did my best friend’s résumé back in 2007. She absolutely loved it and was able to land a new job soon after.  Over time, I went on to help others with their résumés, but it wasn’t until I came across one client who was so overwhelmed with joy and a new found confidence in himself as a valued employee that I realized what my true calling was…

To simply help people see themselves as more.

I remember taking a part-time job at a pretty large law firm in Fort Lauderdale – just to supplement my income while building my résumé business. It was something simple, nothing too stressful.

Despite their ridiculously strict rules and dysfunctional management, I ended up doing very well in my role and they had asked me to join a newly created “special team” as a result of my high performance.

Well, after a few short months on the special team, I became the team leader and they asked me to go full time. Even though I knew it would take me away from my end goal of building a profitable résumé / career coaching business, I accepted. (Hey, it was more money in my pocket).

As the days went by, I realized more and more that I was NOT living up to my fullest potential. The job was honestly, somewhat beneath me and I had no desire to stay in this toxic environment.

I had bigger plans for myself.

I was supposed to be running things, I was supposed to be generating much more money. I was supposed to be a boss – A REAL BOSS! One who could be herself, and use her talents and passions to make a difference in the world.

In July 2014, I decided it was time to stop playing small and live up to my potential. It was time to finally stand in my power as an intellectual, talented woman, put my fears and insecurities aside and go after the career I deserved!

I left Fort Lauderdale and moved to Central Florida to pursue my business (my passion) full time.  No, I’m not saying you should quit your job and move 3 hours away to build a business.

I’m sharing that story because I know you can relate to the feeling of wanting more out of your career, yet you somehow continually settle for less and I want to inspire you to do what I did – Yep! I went after my own seat at the Big BO$$ Lady Table!

I demanded more of myself – more prestige, more significance, more money!

And I want to show you how!

how to gain the confidence you need, package your talents, market your brilliance and sell your value to thriving corporations looking for your exact skill set.

Since that time at the law firm, I have went on to help my clients (at all levels) to pursue and land their dream jobs, negotiate higher salaries, propose and receive significant raises in pay and escape toxic workplaces, all while gaining the confidence they need to move onward and upward in their professional lives, sometimes when they had no IDEA any of it was even a possibility.

Along the way, I’ve been guided by 3 beliefs:

 

1. I don’t EVER have to settle for a job I hate and we all deserve a fulfilling career we love.

2. I can do absolutely anything I want in life – as long as I believe I can and have the courage to make it happen.

3. Everything we desire (that seems unattainable), is on the other side of fear – we just need to step out of our comfort zone and into our greatness!

After losing a high profile job that I held for 9 years very unexpectedly, I was left devastated, and so out of touch with the current job market, I didn’t know what to do. Melanie has given me a resume and cover letter, that has erased all of my fears. She has armed me with current tools to work with, and more importantly, she helped me gain the confidence I was lacking. Now, when I submit my resume, I know that it is of the highest standard.

Also, her LinkedIn service has given me such a powerful profile, that it is being viewed by companies all over the world! After her tutorial showing me what LinkedIn has to offer, and how to use it, my network grows on a daily basis. Her expertise with LinkedIn has new opportunities opening for my regularly. Thanks Melanie!”
