I’ve been teaching business writing at Central Piedmont Community College in Charlotte, NC for the past 5 years. During that time, I’ve taught hundreds of students how to write effective resumes. Their resume drafts are often filled with mistakes that would cause potential employers to throw them straight into the trash.
Those simple days of Tecate beer, border crossings and chorizo burritos are gone now. Mass production, maquiladoras and homeland security have poured hemlock into the ear of hand-made tonneaus from Mexico and left us with a hodge-podge of what are now called “truck bed covers.” On some level it brings a tear to my nostalgic eye-on the other hand, I realize that my uncle’s tonneau was really a clunky tarp that actually snapped to his vehicle. And, the snaps were drilled right into the side of his car, permanently!
Making your Resume too Busy. Your resume should be easy to read. Use no more than 2 fonts. Use 10, 11, or 12 point Times New Roman or Arial. Those are the easiest fonts and sizes to read. Bold and underline only to highlight a new section or very important information. Keep margins at 1 inch.
Definitely look at your closet before choosing a briefcase. It is important to try to coordinate it with your wardrobe and to consider what your shoes and belts look like as well. Black and particular colors of brown can be very refined and adaptable to your wardrobe. You should consider the briefcase as part of your wardrobe rather than just something you carry in your hand. You want the briefcase to send the message that you are a successful, confident, intelligent businessman. Your shoes, belt, and briefcase should all be coordinated.
One of the best strategies I ever implemented was to take at least an entire day off every week from working my sales business. Whenever I truly take a day or two absolutely off from working my more information, it’s amazing how eager I am the following day to get back to work.
So assuming that you already have a website or you have planned where to add content about your product, then I’m going to share with you the first step on your route to pulling in the customers. This first step is research. What I suggest that you do is to look for the product online. If the product sells on Amazon then go to the page for it and read the reviews there. Take notes on what you find, you’re going to use this material in the next step. If the product is sold through Clickbank, then you might have a tougher time, but still invest some time looking for authentic reviews from people who really have purchased the product.
Instead, I advise starting your own restaurant delivery business. You provide the one IN-DEMAND service MOST restaurants don’t. You bring restaurants’ delicious food to their customers, keeping a nice profit in your own business that is super simple and has remarkably low overhead.
