2019 is Cancelled

Every last vacation or fun thing I wanted to do next year. Cancelled. If it doesn’t cost less than $200, I’m not doing it. Hawaii cancelled. Bali cancelled. NYC (this one hurts) cancelled. Greece cancelled. The goal is to get pay off all credit card debt $6K plus cash fund school $6K in all of ’19. This is on top of furnishing my apartment. It sucks, and I’m not looking forward to it, but to be credit card debt free before 2020 would mean more to me than those vacations. However 2020, I will be cash funding ALL THE VACATIONS! Update: Debt has actually gone up to almost $8k. Cash funding school will have to wait. Going to dental school will have to wait. Everything will have to wait. But I have 12 months to pay off $8k, that’s roughly $600 a month in credit card debt to pay off. This does not include, hospital bills, taxes and student loans. I know part of this issue is that I have to get my income up. AND NOT BY TAKING ON A 3RD JOB. 

 Sacrifice vs Pleasure

I’m tired. I just took 4 days off from both jobs and it was the best thing that has ever happened. I also plan on taking four days in March around my birthday. Two jobs is not 2020. This is the last year I do this, unless I’m doing a work from home type situation. I keep thinking about all the times I’ll be able to do this time next  year. Obviously I won’t be debt free, but I’ll be over the biggest hurdle. I wish I had never gotten any of these credit cards. It’s my fault, I am not good with money and I love to shop for things I don’t need. But this is costing me my retirement. To hear the stories about how many people are still working in their 60s and have no plans to retire anytime soon due to not having anything in their savings is heartbreaking. I want to do so much to change the word, but first I need to become disciplined and change myself.

Hire Me: Resume Writer

One day I was at work and woman in her late 20s come in to fill out an application. Her resume was HORRIBLE and I remember the manager all but making fun of it. She didn’t have a lot of experience and the experience she had just wasn’t up to par with what we were hiring for. But I sat and thought about it, your resume is your first impression to an employer and I would have loved to have gone back out to the lobby and let this young black woman know, “girl let me help you so you can help yourself”. But I didn’t want to make her feel bad so I didn’t. That was a few months ago and I still wonder what job she ended up at. 

My passion is to help people (and not in a customer service entitled “customer is always right” sort of thing. I want to leave my mark on the world and if helping someone get a job so they can start making money or pay for their cell phone or car insurance or whatever it is they need to make money for, I’d love to help.

Will I charge? Yes. I have to. But it’ll all be based on how much work I have to do. Will I have to pad your resume, do you need a new design, is there research I have to do in order to make sure you have the best resume? I’ll also make a few different versions of your resume so you’re really getting 3 resume templates for the price of one. Cover letters will also be an extra charge.  Please see bottom for more prices. 

For those of you who know me and already have amazing resumes, please let your friends and family know about my services. While I can’t guaranteed you’ll get a job with the help of your new resume, you’ll definitely be one step closer to impressing potential employers.
