Motivation

Let’s go back in time, quite a long while ago in fact.I first started thinking about the idea of writing a CV book around five years ago. The main reason for this was primarily because people (including clients, colleagues and other career sector professionals) kept telling me that what I was doing was new and radical and that others would want to know about it.

For my part, I knew that my pioneering CV writing methods worked, and got results. Significantly, one of the main reasons why I write CVs in the first place is because I genuinely do like helping people, and I do get a lot of job satisfaction when clients tell me that I help them get a better job, and that they wouldn’t have been able to do it without my help.

A book was very appealing, because whilst I do enjoy helping clients, and have lost count of all the CVs I have written over the years, at the end of the day I only have one pair of hands, and can only write one CV at the time. With a book, on the other hand, I had the potential to help more people – a great many more.

If that isn’t motivation, I don’t know what is.
