HELPING YOU BUILD & GROW A
SUCCESSFUL RESUME WRITING BUSINESS
As Resume Writers, We're a Unique Bunch
When you were little, I bet you didn't say, "I want to be a resume writer when I grow up."
It likely wasn't a highly popular career field as you pondered the various jobs available to you. In some ways, this has helped many resume writers thrive because competition hasn't soared and created a feeding frenzy that we oftentimes see in other industries.
Are we a hodgepodge of misfits?
When you look deep into the resume writing industry, you find a mix of professionals from all walks of life. Some have Juris Doctorate, master's, and bachelor's degrees, while others barely completed high school.
How cool is that?
What makes the resume writing industry such an anomaly is that it's made up of individuals who are highly compassionate about what they do and who they help.
This is the equalizer in this industry.
It doesn't matter what level of education or career field you come from as long as you bring passion and drive to succeed.
But, wait a minute...
There's a lot you may be struggling with as you navigate your resume writing business. This is true regardless of whether you're new or have been operating your business for years.
For example, you may be spinning your wheels, hoping to get all your sales, project management, and writing cogs aligned, so you get your business to the profitability and success level that you want and need.
You may have specific challenges to overcome too.
Maybe you're insecure about your resume writing skills - or still growing as a resume writer.
Or, maybe you're struggling with closing clients ... or, not closing enough of them.
Or, maybe you're tired of having to learn and do everything from scratch - feeling like you're 100, 500, or 1,000 steps behind everyone else. Building a resume business can get complicated when you don't have the support and guidance, making even the smallest tasks FEEL HUGE.
Our goal is to help you pivot, and here's how...

There's My Pumpkin!
Hey there, my name is Teena Rose. When I started my resume writing business in 1999, I realized without the right resources, starting ANY new business can be a challenge.
Plus, I'd never been on the ground floor of a start-up or been a part of the challenges that managing a start-up would bring. I didn't know the first thing about sales, accounting, customer service, or writing resumes. I was completely green.
Sadly, there wasn't much "out there" to help me either. There was a dated book by Jan Melnik at my local library ... but that was it!
Thankfully, I made a TON OF MISTAKES during my first years in business. This statement might surprise you. However, I'm a firm believer in what Nelson Mandela was quoted as saying: "I either win or I learn." Well, I did a lot of learning in the beginning.
For example, in the first year, I missed the cutoff for yellow page advertising by about a month. In 1999, not having a YP ad was a big deal. Resume writing businesses at that time "lived or died" in part by their yellow page ads. Today, that's equivalent to going AN ENTIRE YEAR without a website or a business phone.
You Benefit From My Mistakes & Experiences
One of the best things I ever did was log my business journey. I documented what worked, what didn't, and the resources I used.
Eventually, recognizing that others might want to run a resume writing business, I wrote my first book on starting a resume writing business in 2001.
Since then, I published 3 more editions. Each new book edition received praise from fellow resume writers in the industry. For example:
“When I decided to start [a resume writing business] ... I searched the Internet high and low for an up-to-date guide on how to break into this industry and remain competitive. I found all my answers in this book. The experience and knowledge she shares is invaluable. Thank you, Teena! You rock!” —Melanie Denny, Resume-Evolution.org
"I didn't realize when I purchased your book what amazing value I was getting for the money because I literally couldn't have done this without the information and expertise in the book. I wouldn't have had a clue." —Lorraine Wright, 21st Century Resumes
This site is that book on steroids because it offers an extensive library of resources, tools, examples, shortcuts, and customized how-to advice to make the start and manage your business, get clients, optimize your website, write better resumes, and so on.
For example, members enjoy many great perks including:
- Shortcuts & Strategies So You Launch Faster
- Make More Profit With Optimal Resume Pricing Strategies
- Tools to Excel Your Resume Writing Business
- Done-For-You Content; e.g., Client Contract & Business Plan Example
- Resume Examples — and some cover letters too!
- Content 4Your Clients; e.g., Resume Questionnaires & an Achievements Cheat Sheet to Speed The Client Intake Process

Using the marketing tools, I have increased my sales and streamlined my list-building endeavors. The improved organization has brought consistency to my processes.

It's Time for a Business Shift & Here's WHY
We help fellow resume writers across 4 key areas:
1. BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT
Do you want to get married? Unfortunately, this is where too many resume writers start their sales cycle. They drive prospects right to the "buy now" (let's get married) pages of their website without warming up (dating) their prospects first.
We'll show you how to see your prospects and clients differently and help unlock your resume business's profit potential.
Would you like to write resumes faster, more effectively, and with greater ease?
We provide the tools and support needed to upskill your resume writing. We help get your creative juices flowing as you tell each client's career story.
Boost your resume writing skills with the many tools and done-for-you resources provided to members.
3. TIME SAVINGS & EFFICIENCIES
Ferreting out and resolving inefficiencies can improve your business in so many ways. You can increase sales productivity, find "new hours" in the day, and get those "big rocks" (projects) finished.
We help you avoid those time-sucks that keep you busy, yet keep you unproductive and inefficient too.
Building a tight-knit community of resume writers has always been our focus. We're a unique bunch - and with our unique challenges, we need the resources, tools, and advice customized to those like us who write job-search collateral (e.g., resumes, LinkedIn profiles, and bios) for clients.
