How do you introduce yourself to people you meet in business?
It is always a privilege to help my clients bust through the dark ceiling of Fear - Fear of writing the words that will expose themselves positively to the employer. It is a senseless fear that I hope to crush...I am a "Word Buster."
Beyond my training, certifications (CPRW, CEIP), 10 publications, 15 years in the career writing and coaching business, and a Federal Service Logistics Management and Technical Project Management career, I simply love writing and it shows!
