If you're ready to start your business, you've come to the right place today - I have so much to share, and I teach from experience.

I was sitting on my couch feeding my four week old baby when the idea came to me.

Let’s start from the beginning:  Five years ago, I started a resume writing business with a $400 laptop, a newborn and a very busy toddler.

With no HR Qualifications or a business plan, I placed an ad on Gumtree (an online market place) and hoped for the best.

Over the years, I have learned a lot - and, most of the time, learned it the hard way - and yet I have grown a successful career development service that has allowed me to quit my day job and work from home in a few hours a day. I earn more than enough to support my family (now four children!) and have created the work-life balance that I never realised was possible.
This is what I want for you, too. I want to support you to create this life for yourself if that is what you desire. That is why I created Resume Academy® - to share my unique business model that has supported me, and dozens of other Resume Academy® graduates, to do so.

The best part of resume writing as a business service is that it can be as big - or as little - as you need it to be. For the first two years of my business, I worked during maternity leave and then around my full time job, bringing in (on average) between $250-$450 extra income to our family each week. Once I quit my job and went "all in" on Clothier Careers, I quickly scaled to $1000+ and beyond.

Before you start you may have some questions. Here are some that I'm frequently asked.

The short answer to this question is yes, you can. Resume Writing is an unregulated profession, so that means there are no 'minimum' standards for learning or experience. I do not have HR or recruitment experience, and Clothier Careers is a very successful career development service. Through teaching this business model to others for the past 2 years I have realised that we all have valuable life experience that can be applied in this work, and we talk about this a lot in Resume Academy. The things you MUST bring to this work is an ability to communicate really well, an excellent grasp of the English language and a genuine desire to serve your clients and help them in their time of need. The rest, I can teach you!

A laptop or PC and an internet connection is what you will need to access and complete Resume Academy. The sessions are delivered via video and PDF worksheets. To access the exclusive Facebook group, you will need a Facebook profile. 

Honestly, you can start straight away. Module 1 we set up your business and from Module 2 we are learning how to write them. Through this course you have the opportunity to have 3 resumes reviewed and assessed, and I encourage you to use these to gain experience and traction in your business. During the course, I will support you to find your first clients and get the momentum started in your marketing and your business.

I know this isn't a question, but it's something I hear all the time. Some of the most successful business people on this earth have multiple start ups and stops behind them. It has given them the insight that they needed to make the right one work! I can't promise you that this will be the 'one' for you, but I will support you through those limiting beliefs and self-sabotage that tries to stop us from going after our dreams. As part of this course I have shared so much of my own experience in my business journey, and I know you'll find it insightful and resonate with it in a way that will encourage and support you to keep going. 

Resume Writing is a rewarding profession that supports your clients in an important life move.

This work has given me so much satisfaction and joy in helping my clients to find the confidence to apply for jobs, polish up their applications and improve their chances of success. It's powerful, exciting work!

There are many reasons why you might consider resume writing as an option for you, and I'm determined to clear the path for the right people to come into our industry to help their clients.

> You have a genuine desire to serve your clients and help them achieve their goals
> You are ready to create something from the ground up, that complements your lifestyle and creates a flexible income stream
> You want to start a home based business, but MLM is not for you
