The National Resume Writers Association - an amazing group of generous professionals and mentors

I joined The NRWA in 2012 as the Education Chair running the teleseminars. After that I moved to Marketing and Social Media and manage their LinkedIn and Google Plus Pages. In everything you do to advance your own business, when you are a member of The NRWA you feel like you have an entire group of Pros at your side. Your very own cheerleading squad and Think Tank on the Yahoo Group. But the thing that gets me the most is how generous everyone tries to be with the newer resume writers. The NRWA is therefore one of the leading companies that is thriving in the age of information, not by hoarding information, but by sharing it with those that come after them. This image is a prime example of the camaraderie that exists in The NRWA where a fellow resume writer is giving me such accolades. 🙂

Success In The Digital Age

“Success In The Digital Age”

Success for businesses, as well as individuals is based on the same principles in the digital age of Social Media, as it was in any age.  Those that follow their passion, and make part of their mission to help others solve problems will be showered with success from all corners.  Try it!  Volunteer somewhere!  You stand a better chance at being hired into a paying job if someone actually sees you giving your best; providing a service for no payment.  Keep that in mind when the “upload resume depression” sets in.~Mill


<Now I’m going to try an experiment in this Blog post and translate the text to Spanish my native language and see how many of our followers speak Spanish.  Let me know if you’d like me to continue to translate the Blog in future posts.>


El éxito de las empresas, así como las personas se basa en los mismos principios en la era digital de los medios sociales, como lo fue en cualquier edad. Los que siguen su pasión, y hacen parte de su misión ayudar a otros a resolver problemas seran bañados con el éxito desde todos los rincones. Pruébelo! Presentese como Voluntario en algun lugar! Usted tiene una mejor oportunidad de ser contratado en un trabajo que paga si alguien realmente ve que le da su mejor, durante el suministro de un servicio para ningún pago monetario. Tenga esto en cuenta cuando la “depresión de mandar tantos resumes” empieze.~Mill

Those that follow their passion, and make part of their mission to help others solve problems will be showered with success from all corners.

I have a dream too

I have a dream too

“I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.” -Martin Luther King Jr

Drew this on my iPad1 with Procreate App to commemorate today’s 50th anniversary of the march on Washington. I believe there are new MLK’s among us and we shall strive to improve our job market and economy to achieve the equality Dr King dreamed of across the land. My dream is to be able to help as many Americans get their resumes polished up so they can compete in this digital era and get working productively again. #AdvanceTheDream
