Every week, I do the first draft of this letter on Wednesday. I edit on Thursday. You see it on Friday morning. That means on Wednesday mornings, I’m thinking about what to write as I get ready. What story I want to tell and what feeling I need to get out of my chest.
When I pondered our topic this week, I was flooded with memories of the people I met in the last year through our LinkedIn Writing Service. There’s the mother who left the Mormon church and bought a billboard that was featured on Ellen to tell the world Love Is Love, even in Utah. There’s the guy who was the first chalk artist at Whole Foods and now trains teams to see potential and invest in inspiration. The medical researcher that found herself homeless and wanted to find her next home. How could I pick just one?
I never expected any of this when I started offering LinkedIn rewrites
. The unemployment rate increased by 10% percent in April 2020. That’s 23.1 million people who were scared and didn’t know what to do next. I just thought I could help.
I was surprised by how much these conversations feel like therapy for work trauma. It is so much more than skills and history. My clients have shared the kind of stories you want to watch in a Netflix documentary. I’ve talked people through some of their deepest and darkest fears.
It makes me feel incredible to be there for people in this moment of change. There’s something magical about showing someone how special they are and giving them that boost of confidence as they enter a job search laced with vulnerability.
I’ve said it before, but no one changes jobs lightly.
When you decide you’re willing to leave a job, it’s a confession of sorts. A confession to yourself that something isn’t right in your life and you want more. It’s a confession that you’re willing to change everything to be happy. That amount of change is significant and challenging, whether you choose it or it’s chosen for you.
Whatever you do next, I hope you can find your dream. That you can see yourself in a new light. That you can understand what makes you so special and operate from a place of knowing your unique value, instead of the perception that you’re just competing with everyone else.
So while business is getting busy with job post writing, I’m still offering a few of these sessions a year after the world went into panic mode because those conversations remind me why I’m on this planet.
You taking the time to read this does that, too, so thanks.
I can help you make your story stand out, and that’s why my blog this week is about our LinkedIn writing service
. If you haven’t heard about it yet, it’s a one-hour session where I will rewrite your profile live.
Yes, we get it done in one hour. It’s my weird talent. I listen to your story for 30 minutes, and then for the last 30 minutes, I write. It’s that easy. You can buy a session here
or check out the blog below. Don’t hesitate to email me if you have any questions.
Have a great week -
CEO, Three Ears Media
