Hi, I'm Emma, and four years ago I was just like you.
I was working in job that I didn't love and would sit on the bus to work dreaming of a life where I wasn't rushing and juggling so many things.
I was stressed out trying to manage childcare drop offs and pick ups and generally just trying to get by. I saw a life coach and she planted the seed of starting my own business, but I couldn't believe that I had the skills or know-how to do it.
However, I did know how to write a resume as I'd previously received some job coaching following a redundancy. I had started helping friends and colleagues with their job applications, so this became my business idea. I had no idea if anyone would pay me for my services, but thought I'd give it a go.
So I bit the bullet and started Rescue my Resume in January 2018. I had no idea how to start a business, but learned along the way, and haven't looked back.
I have quadrupled my prices since then and business is thriving. I work less than I used to and am paid more. I have time to go to the gym, sit in cafes, do my work and still make it to school pick up.
There is a lot of demand for resume writers - an essentially pandemic-proof job. Demand has increased as the employment market has become more competitive, and your work can be done completely remotely.
I have learned a lot over the last three years in business.
- I have done online research, joined business groups and completed lots of professional development to ensure my business plan, marketing and finances are well set up and stay on track.
- I have figured out the best way to find my ideal clients and then work with them in an efficient yet engaging way.
- I have perfected a resume and cover letter template and created a simple system that makes writing resumes and job applications EASY.
And now I want to teach you everything I know!
