Treat Yourself as Your Most Important Customer

Kent Nolen

I am constantly impressed by my clients – professionals who, based on the achievements we uncover during the resume writing process, have moved heaven and earth for their (internal and external) customers. So, it pains me when someone who has devoted an astounding amount of energy to the success of their organization or customers fails to even outline these successes on their resume.

I understand that there is never enough time. I understand that evaluating one’s own success is tough. I understand that resume writing is a skill that many professionals just have no need to develop (it is why I have a thriving business). I understand that success often means sacrifice.

But what if you treated yourself like you were your most valuable client? What if you approached updating your resume with your last big win with the same urgency you tackled a key client’s issue du jour? Would you be even more successful? I bet you would be.

In 2018, make a promise. Treat yourself like your best client.
